Still playing some Absolver in between games of Battlefront.
I gotta say this game definitely gets my pick for hidden gem of 2017.

Probably my favorite fighting game of all time. There's just something about being able to put together your own combos from 150+ possible moves.
There's also just something so intuitive about how the combat works and i totally can just get in a sort of Zen zone where i know what attack or counter to use.
Here's a great fight i had today.





PS: also getting pumped about TERA coming to ps4. there starting closed betas/technical tests my friend got in adn a wider beta i hope to get in early next year.
There's a bunch of old pc mmos scheduled to be  ported this year including TERA, BLaDE and soul and BLack Desert Online.
Tera's p[robably got the best rep and should get a huge console following if they optimize it well...which is the biggest complaint about the pc version.

Ok sw battlefront 2 is pretty awesome.  Iíve had some bad lag and rubberbanding and I hate some of the maps on GA, but heroes and villains is the shit!  Iím not good by any means and still trying to disuse out some things but I do enjoy the fuck out of it.
The events in our lives happen in a sequence in time, but in their significance to ourselves they find their own order; the continuous thread of revelation.

there was a big spike in the rubberbanding around black friday weekend with the influx of players, but they did a hotfix that fixed it for the most part. you'll still get it now and then on the more technically demanding maps like Kasyyyk. Really just shows hwo much this game and Frostbite engine  is pushing current gen hardware though...

yeah, HvV was almost my fav. mode and i was playing it about 33% of the time but then the AFK credit farming  on console started and pretty much made it unplayable for me.
Dice has aknoweldeged the situtation though and hopefully there is a fix coming soon...

In the mean time they did a server side update today for increased credit gains which is nice. you now get about twice as much.
And tomorrwo is the beginning of the first "season", this one being for the Last Jedi.
WE get Phasma nad Finn, plus maps i believe, and there are 'challenges' revolving around choosing the First Order or Resistence,.
Complete details will be out tomorrow.

I've been loving the shit out of Battlefield 2.
I've finished the campaign, most of the base level arcade modes and I've been working on my Starfighter Assault play. That shit is trickyy but so fun.
Slim, your tips re: first person and advanced fighter control are key. That was my first frustration with the game as it seemed to defeat 3-dimensional thinking; which is what you need for this sort of thing.

it sounds like i should probably pick up BF2 when there are sales soon, maybe after the holidays. 

in the meantime, i upgraded my Battlefield 1 to Premium with the Black Friday sales and the new maps/operations are amazing.  haven't played that game in a couple of months, but it's SO good - the graphics & gameplay are just amazing, with each gun having very unique characteristics.  similar to my TF2 days, i enjoy support roles, especially medic.  the snipers in the game are way too fucking good!

always down man, just shoot me  a pm on psn.
I've been loving the shit out of Battlefield 2.
I've finished the campaign, most of the base level arcade modes and I've been working on my Starfighter Assault play. That shit is trickyy but so fun.

stoked to hear ur enjoying the game rj, and lemm know if u ever need any general tips for the other modes.
--and that goes for anyone else too.

 In general i'll just say that this game has alot higher skill cap than the 1st, so rule number one of the infantry and hero modes would be to learn how to play defensive first. IE- STAY ALIVE, and use Line of Sight.
 In Galactic Assualt especially where there is a ticket count that goes down each time you die as an attacker, lives are a premium.
You actually get and provide a decent amount of team buffs with certain abilites so your survivabiilty often is increased by playing around other members of your team...

BUT, one of the most common mistakes i see is players being sucked into what they call 'meatgrinders', IE chokepoints.
There are certain sections of maps with vary narrow entrances to take objectives and bad teams will bleed waaay too many tickets trying to force their way through them.
Beware of grenade and explosive spam, as well as heroes camping these sections, but most importantly explore and learn the maps and the alternative/flanking routes.

One last 'pro-tip' for GA once you get a little more confident and familiar with the maps is if you are playing as assault or specialist - USe your 'special ability' (th eone triggered by holding the two triggers at once) soley for the speed boost out of the spawn.
PErsonally i'll burn that sucker isntaneously when re-spawning as these classes, and you'll be back in the action twice as fast.
Though the real trick is when you learn to rush the initial spawn at the start of a game with assault.
 a team with a half dozen assualts rushing at double speed out the gate is going to have a major advantage in positioning fo the first engagement.
I often can roll off a 5 or so killstreak in my first life just by taking th eopposing team off guard at how fast i made it to the expected engagement points.

ETA: - btw, the most obvious beginner tip is make sure you are playing in 3rd person for GA and other infantry modes. 1st person is at a major disadvantage as far as situational awareness and line of sight.

BTW, the 'LAst JEdi season' did start today but the actual content drop isn't until the movie comes out.
so, basically just some BS community challenges until the 13th and then new maps, Finn and Phasma.
i'm sorta excited for Phasma, she should have some cool abilites i'm thinking.

Only got to play it once though. I'll be back.

I've been enjoying the following:

The Last of Us (such a wonderful game!)
Red Dead Redemption (love westerns)
Forza 7
Gran Turismo Sport

Those are the main 4.

Rented Destiny 2 (which I liked, will buy once the price goes below $40.00), Wolfenstein II (hated this game, which is a shame because the graphics are intense). 
Dysfunction and itemized lists of peopleís failures are where itís at.

yeah, tired HvV again last night with EMay but the AFK credit farmers are still there.
I'm just gonna wait it out til they put in a fix.
Supposedly they tweeted or something that its on the way this week, so hopefully it'll be playable again very soon.
Right now it's pointless in a mode where a one man disadvatage is a loss 90% of the time.
