SW Battlefront II questions? I loved the OGXB Battlefront II Campaign.

 

Is there a single player/local coop campaign?

If I am not going to play online, is there any reason to get anything more than the $7.99 version?

 

Opinion question (optional)?

 

Will this redeem my disappointment from Fallen Order? 

I got it a while ago mainly for the single player. The story is decent and they had added a 2nd part to it set after the events. But it wont take long to play through. There is some single player & 2 player challenges not sure if it does split screen off hand.

 

I know you said you werent interested playing online but I would suggest checking out the CO-OP mode online I believe its called. You play with 3 other people online vs AI. Its split into 3 periods (Prequels, Original Trilogy & the Sequels) You pick what side you want to be on. You can unlock & play as heroes / villains, there are some vehicles (speeders / tanks / etc) and some other special troopers).  I play that mode all the time. The only thing missing is space battles for CO-OP. I know they have been adding content so not sure if they plan on adding that to CO-OP.

I think $399 for NBA Jam is a fair price with the 4 player controls & Riser.
Hopefully they can get the rosters finalized. Im curious who the players are they havent gotten.

 

Edit: Guessing these are the players for NBA Jam (Michael Jordan's name or likeness (as Jordan himself owns the rights to his name and likeness and not the NBA), and as such he was not available as a player for the Chicago Bulls or any other team. Another notable absence from the home versions is Shaquille O'Neal, who was in the arcade version as a member of the Orlando Magic (and who later followed in Jordan's footsteps in buying his name and likeness from the NBA). New Jersey Nets guard Dražen Petrović and Boston Celtics forward Reggie Lewis,

Since it says 3 I dont think its MJ as he was not in the game at all. I do know Barkley had sued I believe later so I wonder if he is one of the 3.
 

If they are able to update cabs later I wonder if they could do DLC such as adding New players later if they could get the rights to current players.

I guess my only complaint with the cab is its only NBA. I know the NFL Blitz wouldn't happen due to the lawsuits with concussions and what not so they dont want to glorify it. I wonder if the NHL has the same issues as I wouldn't have minded seeing 2on2 Open Ice


Im running out or room in my mancave (7 A1UPs & 1 Full Size MAME). I might be able to get a couple more so Im trying to be selective as to what cabs I add. From what we seen at CES I think NBA Jam & the updated Golden Tee might be the only 2 I add in the near future.


Im still hoping they do:
Racing Game Cab 1 - 3 Player Super Sprint / Super Offroad cab.
Racing Game Cab 2 - Crusin USA / Cruisin World
You can mix in Outrun & Daytona USA as well

Another 4 Player Game - Xmen, Captain America & the Avengers & maybe Simpsons or Sunset Riders

Light Gun Cab - Lethal Enforcers 1 & 2, Area 51

Kinda odd there was no mention of the Capcom cab with Marvel Vs. Capcom.  I saw some pics of early CES 2020 leaks on youtube that showed a cab with Marvel Vs. Capcom, Big Game Hunter, and a stand-up version of the Pac-Man cocktail cabinet.  

 

https://www.youtube....h?v=O5-sHv-MGxo

Those were mock-up cabs that are not official (yet). Maybe E3? Or might be awhile.

What was shown today is the following:

NBA Jam 4 player (Jam, TE & Hangtime)
(2) Virtual Pinball Games
Burger time cab
Sega Cab (Golden Axe, etc...)
Update Games (Street Fighter, Asteroids Deluxe, Golden Tee & the Mortal Kombat Costco Bundle) Upgrades included Light up marquees, upgraded controls, LED Buttons & additional game on the Golden Tee (Bowling)
Frogger
New Pac-Man 40th Anniversary cab that added a couple more pac-man games & galaga.
New Wallcade version 2s & cabcade v2. Lower price point.
Sit-down version of star wars - Will be a optional add later for those that have it already.
Giant Joysticks (Atari & a PAC-MAN)
Micro & small retro style games

Theres a handful of videos that have the guys from Arcade1up discussing things & going over the new games/updates.

Man you must have figured out some sort of trick. I have been trying every day both text and computer every year and cant seem to win. Im playing at all hours of the day / night. Some random some on the minute. Cant ever seem to win on these. I even buy the boxes before the free code goes live. Doesnt seem to matter.

If anyone in the Albany NY area is looking to offload one of the ones picked up on clearance shoot me a DM. Especially if it's one of the Space Invader ones. I never really looked into these things till I found this thread earlier this week so I didn't know the SI one existed, now it's gone everywhere since it's on clearance. Apparently someone bought the last two at the N. Greenbush store this evening just before I walked in. 

Like Tom posted supposedly Glenmont has them & it looks like Crossgates Commons just marked theirs down to $75 as well. I was really considering getting one and was waiting for the ones at Crossgates to go down. But Im running out of room. I already have (7) of the Arcade1ups and a full size MAME machine.

Webster, NY Walmart did have some Pyramid posters in their electronics section. There was Space Invaders and also a Mario Kart poster 2pack for $4.00 each.


Got a pic of the space invader one?

Keep checking Brickseek & the Walmart app. My store just dropped all their Arcade1UP games to $150 (Not including Golden Tee). I grabbed a Final Fight, Mortal Kombat, Rampage & Pac-Man yesterday to go with the (3) games I already had (Galaga, Centipede & Street Fighter).

Lots of repeats and same pricing as the last sale. I already have a good size backlog from the last one. I was going to add Assassins Creed Origins but Im only about 1/2 through on Odyssey and Origins is the same price as last time.

But as always thanks Bloomy for the lists & all the work you do.

It's just money grubbers coming out of the woodwork. All these new lawsuits are reminding me of when Guitar Hero started getting sued by all those bands for stuff like "improper use of likenesses" or whatever. These people probably don't care or at least aren't aware, but when something blows up like Fortnite or Guitar Hero and they hear how much money is being made they just want a piece of the pie. This situation is different though since with Guitar Hero those people or at least their business people had to approve it and got paid to begin with.

 

That said, I don't think a person can own the rights to a dance with the current laws in the US. Yes, they may have created or popularized it, but it seems like it would sort of become "public domain" since anyone in the world can dance. It seems like they'll have a hard time truly having a case unless they can get some kind of copyright or whatever like the Carlton guy claims he is doing. Though he also says they used his likeness and that doesn't seem accurate to me. I'd guess most of these are just hoping that Epic will do an out of court settlement to avoid the headache of court. With "Backpack Kid", he is literally a kid so it's likely the parents with these thoughts. I'm not saying it's not a bit lame that Epic and other devs are just cashing in on these goofy dances instead of simply creating entirely original emotes, but I don't think it's illegal.

The difference was Guitar hero paid for those likenesses. A couple bands got upset after the fact when you could play as those characters but sing songs but others. As to this no one was paid for the dances. And they charge what $3-$5 a dance.  So cant say I blame them. I dont think they would be suing if they were free or gave some sort of credit. As to the law.

http://ericnortonlaw...k-a-dance-move/

 

However, a dance move can be trademarked in that the name of that dance move can be trademarked. Take a look at Tebowing or Kaepernicking.

 

 

Since we’re talking intellectual property, I may as well mention that it may also be possible to copyright a dance—but not just a move itself. You have to combine a number of dance moves and patterns into an expressive whole for it to be eligible for copyright protection.

 

Back on topic. Looking forward to the sale :)
