Battlefield 1 – or how pre-ordering reached a new low

Everybody’s got a hard-on for Battlefield 1.

Meteor to the face

It’s like No Man’s Sky all over again, but with more EA tags plastered all around it.

But this isn’t DICE trying a new IP. This newest retelling of an old war simulation game in a line of lots of war simulation games in a world of so many war simulation games… is actually pretty good.

Or so they say.

So I guess asking 140 euros – or 130 dollars – for the most specialestest of digital versions – as opposed to a physical version with actual gadgets and stuff – is totally legit.

That’s right. For only 2 to 3 times the price of a regular AAA game, you can be THE MOST ELITE VIRTUAL SOLDIER EVER, playing deadly tag on maps way before your poorer – or more financially sane – compatriots.

To anyone who falls for this Day-1-Post-Pre-Order-DLC shit, please, enlighten me…

Why?

  1. Very well written :-). I’m sure the world would look very different today if the rich were the soldiers on the battlefield in WW1.

  2. I don’t think any ‘rich’ person entered a battlefield since the French Revolution, so don’t get your hopes up.
