    EU Canon superior to nu-StarWars. The best part of that game was getting Daala as a Sith Lord and RPing Mara Jade good times.

    Funny thing, in Multiplayer there's apparently only one "White Guy" character Option for each faction, and for some reason despite stuffing it full of "Diversity" 95%+ of the player base of this Multiplayer Spaceship pew pew game seem to still be white guys, so people are starting to notice that Match end Screens often seem to look like an Episode of the Mustachioed Avenger: https://www.reddit.com/r/StarWarsSquadrons/comments/j4fvnq/the_clone_wars_have_begun_again/

    Funny enough, all those dark faces eerily resemble the kitchen staff at EA's corporate HQ. Rumor has it they're told to never make eye contact with any of the executives. At least they got a small bonus for sitting in for the face scanning sessions.

    It's a first person game, how the characters look is irrelevant.

    Not even going to bother posting the article and give them a backlink.

    He claims that "Microtransactions sustain interest in the game, and now that Squadrons has none the game won't generate enough money in order to make EA release more content for it".

    PS.

    Is he getting confused with DLC? because MTX is consumables which I'd argue DON'T bring people back if anything push people away because they add no value at all its a sign of a game that pushes grind to make up for a lack of content. DLC on the other hand does bring people back but only for a short time before realising that the new DLC is garbage that could've been included in the base product for free. Boil that frog though see how far it gets you.

    thegamer .com site? Wasn't that the one which blatantly wrote that Chris Avellone drugged and rapped those women?

    It is used for objects and animals. Could be considered rude when applied to persons.

    Also organizations (because they are theoretically composed of multiple people, even when they're actually acting in the interest of one person or outright have a single owner with absolute power over the company) and some robots/utterly non-human intelligence in fiction. Sometimes hypothetical people ("If someone breaks the rules, they will be punished."). Real people that want to be referred to as "they" are crazy.

    retards like to be called using "they/them".
    because they contain enough retardation to fill a multitude of people.

    They/them is like "queer," it really signifies nothing other than you wanting to be different. Like high school goth bullshit for adults.

    i just noticed, don't know if only for this specific case yet, that steam doesn't list "it uses denuvo" anymore.
    edit: the instance has been removed only from some titles, not all of them.

    edit: and that somehow i've been unsubscribed from the "denuvo games" group.

    Interdesting, 15% of all people who bought this apparently played it in VR, even though it released on PC, Xbone and SnoyStation:

    Because VR is the only thing this game has going for it. I've been waiting for VR Star Wars space combat game ever since I played X-Wing VR mission in Battlefront.-

    Bu-bu-but the Empire is supposed to be purely EVIL in the story! I mean it's pretty much established as the Space Nazis down to the uniforms and helmets and shit! Everyone knows Nazis were WHITE MALES and WHITE MALES are evil and therefore it made sense to have Empire exclusively made up of white men plus a few white Karens. And one blue fuck male, but he can be considered to be a Jap or something I guess.

    Are Disney saying that negro women, gay asians and tranny yellowskins are EVIL creatures capable of EVIL things!?

    More interesting is the lack of player numbers.
    Also I am sure EA doesnt give a fuck about livestreaming numbers, those arent sales.
