The dark side did nothing wrong at the following link.

While there is probably two hours worth of conversation to debate the justifications of the Empire Vs. the Rebellion in Star Wars, there’s only about 10 minutes to discuss the single player campaign found in Battlefront 2. According to one of us, because no one else has played or has any interest in playing it. It really didn’t matter how bad EA was going to screw up this game mechanically or ethically, Matt was still going to be there day one. Or day one minus a month or however long ago he pre-ordered it. I can’t fault him for that. We knew he would do it. It’s Star Wars and gaming and he’s going to be there regardless. Even if the story disappoints for him. We cover spoilers, by the way, for what it’s worth. There’s really no other way that story was going to end without it being a setup for a sequel and to have Matt tell it, this seems like something they tacked on for fan service or to just get the single player folks to finally shut up about it. EA has made it very clear in their actions as of late, both with the loot boxes and Visceral’s closing, single player games do not make them the kind of money they want.

As you know we’re having to stretch the soup a bit to get our 500th episode to fall at a time that is more convenient. That comes in two parts as holiday vacations – the first of which is this week. So, there will be no show on Saturday the 25th. You’ll hear a replay of, I think, our music episode. But we’ll be back the following weekend to talk about whatever on hand plus our hauls from the sales this weekend. Good luck out there, let us know what kind of deals you picked up.
