OMG. Those screenshots are horrifyingly funny! I really liked Assassin's Creed when it's good (e.g. The Ezio Trilogy) so I was really looking forward to this. The parity mess made me reconsider my intent to purchase, but all these reported issues told me that my money is better off going to another game I'm interested in - Dragon Age: Inquisition.
I hope that they'll get sorted out eventually and maybe a complete edition of the game will be out by then. For some reason though, I feel that I shouldn't hold my breath for that.
So question, what if all media outlets just agreed to say fuck off to embargos that are past the release date. I mean, it doesn't benefit them in any way. So why would anyone agree to that? I know the reason you normally agree to embargo, is because you have a review copy that you agree to the terms, and you also want to maintain that relationship with the publisher late down the line.
But embargos that are past the actual release of the game? That is absurd.
Thanks a bunch. I had no family or friends in real life (moved to a new state last year when I got hit with it). GAF was the only thing that got me through. If it wasn't for kind people on here, I would not be here right now. I was ready to give up several times.
how long till the Review Thread? I cant wait for the fireworks. People, this is why you do NOT support Ubisoft day one, or any other game for that matter, until you know for sure what you will be getting. Glad I held off on this.
Sigh. I feel guilty for even buying this. I usually try to "wait" for reviews before buying games. I don't want to support bad business practices. I just got trigger happy this week, and got a bunch of digital pre-loads set up. You see, I just beat a year long fight with cancer. And I had my week after my final test set up to...celebrate with a bunch of new games, should I beat it. And I did.
But now I feel bad, because this game runs very poorly. And Ubisoft is pulling some shit that I don't condone or support. I should learn from this company's history.
This can't be real, is it? OMFG!! LMAO... I don't know, I'm supposed to be getting this later in the mail. Yikes. I guess I'll suck it up and play for the story (haven't missed one yet) and pray for a patch. SMH.
We're talking about quality here, not popularity. These two things are not necessarily related.
It's not just GTA V that got a pass. Pretty much every game last gen got a pass. And that's shameful for the industry as a whole. Developers, publishers and reviewers failed, but also the manufacturers. They approved those games for certification.
