The previous record holder for the most-downvoted Reddit comment was someone asking for people to downvote his comment.

About the downvoted Reddit comment:

The previous record holder had -24,333 downvotes. This OP literally asked for everyone to downvote them.

The Star Wars comment has -682,636 as of 12:12 PST, so it has over 600,000 more downvotes than a post that was begging for downvotes.

Nitpicky, but... Andrea said players have noticed the Battlefront 2 problems through their early access via EA Access and if you pre-order - the latter is incorrect, not all pre-orders get you early access.

The Elite Trooper Deluxe Edition gets you 3 days early access, and that began today.

Greg already has a moniker for Gary: "Whittawednesday's own Gary Whitta". Another moniker Greg has given Gary is "Rogue One's Gary Whitta"

Tim was wrong

Right before Games Daily Tim mentioned that Meowth was the only Pokémon that could talk when discussing how disturbing it is that Pikachu speaks English in the new movie.

This is wrong, as multiple Pokémon throughout the series have been known to speak English, most notably Psychic type Pokémon through either telepathy or by actual voice. Mewtwo in the first movie, Slowking and Lugia in the second, Entei in the 3rd, and so on.

There is even a Pokémon introduced in the 4th generation called "Chatot" which is a parrot Pokémon who not only spoke English, but in the 4th generation games had a unique move called "Chatter" that allowed Players to record a 3 second audio clip to be played when chatot used this attack. (This move was removed and banned from online play due to obvious reasons)

I'd like to point out that the issue isn't the balance. It's that the game still has Pay to Win in it and it feels like people have forgotten that it's the core issue. WutFace WutFace

PS. if this is what games of service is like, I'd rather pay 5$ a month to play the game -_- ThisIsFine

Not a "You're wrong" more of a "You missed this bit", It has since been shown that not only have the cost of these heroes by 75%, but rewards have been reduced by a relative amount. An example: the campaign once rewarded players with 20,000 credits. It now rewards 5,000.

Game Informer has more info, but it seems to be across the board.

Love you guys, congrats Andrea on your nomination, and Gary just wanted you to know I love you. You're the dude.

Something that EA left out of the statement they released is not only did they reduce the cost of the characters by 75% but they also cut the earn rate of the points / currency by 75%. (at least in single player, not sure about multiplayer earn rates) So in the end it seems like nothing has really changed and this could be an attempt at a PR spin. Here's an article from gameinformer about this. http://www.gameinformer.com/b/news/arch ... ign=buffer

Hi Andrea and Gary,

The comment was made on the topic of Battlefront 2, that for $5 the consumer can pay and get Vader instead of grinding the game. That is not correct, There have been reports of consumers spending $100 to $250 to buy star crates and get duplicate cards to dismantle and get the credits to buy Vader. There is not base price to purchase Vader, it take RNG even when using money

Not necessarily a "you're wrong", but on the topic of game price points not changing for years, while this may be the case in the U.S, in Australia and New Zealand retail releases of AAA games have grown by $10 every console generation. In the PS2/XBOX gen games were $79.99, In PS3/360 generation games were $89.99, and in this generation games are $99.99. Some games are even starting to cost $109.99.

Again, you aren't wrong, but game prices are climbing in places outside the U.S.

Not really a you're wrong but pertinent information on battlefront 2.

EA has removed the refund button on origin for this game. You now have to call their customer support (which can potentially take hours) to get a refund. Just in case you want to give them the benefit of the doubt. You shouldn't.

#1 The Super Mario Bros. movie was in live-action because CG animated movies weren't established yet; Toy Story wouldn't come out until 1995, two years after the Mario movie. Still, could have been animated traditionally!

#2 Charles Martinet's first role as Mario was in 1990 for trade show depictions of the character where he'd talk to the people in line. His breakout role as the character was of course Super Mario 64 in 1996.

#3 Andrea implied that Illumination Studios had a "fantastic track record". With the exception of the original Despicable Me, none of their movies have a Metacritic rating higher than 62.

Mario has had many different voices this is the list Ronald B. Ruben (Mario Teaches Typing), Marc Graue (Hotel Mario)
Charles Martinet (1990–present), Peter Cullen (Saturday Supercade), Lou Albano (The Super Mario Bros. Super Show!)
Walker Boone (The Adventures of Super Mario Bros. 3 and Super Mario World)
Also Bob Hoskins in the live-action movie.

Maybe the price of season passes and DLCs that have come after the last price hike should also be factored into the price of games nowadays. Most AAA games have a season pass now, which pushes the price from $60 to $80 or more. In most cases the additional content from the season passes or DLCs end up feeling like staggered releases of the full game.

Andrea mentioned Monster Hunter games being on the PlayStation Vita but that's not true, at least not in the United States. In Japan and Asia they released Monster Hunter Frontier G but that never managed to get a localized release stateside. Keep up the good work everyone!
