Wait for the Xmas sales at least. And it's only right that Creston take the plunge first and give us his feedback.

I doubt EA is putting it on sale this Christmas, to be honest. And yes, I'll let people know what I think of the first five hours, after I've played them.

I really don't have time to get fully into it until next weekend though, so it'll just be first impressions, mostly.

Downloaded Inquisition overnight. Will give it a play this evening. I'll post my impressions here for anyone who's interested.

Absolutely. Holla at us.

Preloads start tomorrow. I hope I can actually download the whole thing before Monday night at 11....

I felt that FO3 ended just fine, to be honest. I mean, I enjoyed the extension that Something Steel added, and obviously it fixed the horseshit egregious error that the mutant couldn't go fix the issue for you, but I also didn't really see Whatever Steel as a DLC. It clearly wasn't meant to be in the game from the start, unlike From Ashes, which features roughly the two most significant revelations in the entire ME lore.

I've played all of the AssCreed games to 100% sync, so naturally I had this one preordered.
Lucky for me I was too busy playing other games to touch this half-baked POS... I'll save myself a headache and solve all of the bugs and glitches the easy way... by returning it for a refund.

That's just about the only thing that makes shitty publishers take notice.

As for paywall DLC, can you tell me which DLC you mean? We've had the discussion many times, and no one has really named a game that felt incomplete without DLC. Hell, I said Fallout 3 and some people got angry at me for that.

I don't think it was really incomplete without it, but From Ashes (I think that's what it was called) for ME3 did add some pretty fucking startling revelations throughout the game that massively changed the entire way large chunks of the lore were viewed. Putting it in DLC (even if it was included with the new game) was fucking ridiculous, no matter how much Gaider keeps claiming there were reasons for it.

If FC4 is also a technical shitty mess (on the PC at least, since it's done by Ubisoft Kiev), then yes, I agree they've become the new EA.

In which case, congrats EA! Someone is better at being the shithole that is you than you yourself!

he has a beastly rig so he expects everything to run well on it and anything that doesn't is simply unacceptable.

Do you disagree with that opinion? If even today's most powerful rigs can't run this game smoothly, there is either some massive performance bug going on, or the engine is flatout terrible.

Yes, they "future proofed" their game. Whatever. The last game (and really about the only game) that claimed that was Crysis, and 8 years later, it still runs like a one-legged pig, even on machines and graphics cards that have have roughly ten times the power of the ones we originally played it on, so I just call flatout bullshit on any dev/publisher that claims that.

What most likely really went on is that Ubisoft Kiev yet again fucked up a PC port because they have no clue what the hell they're doing. (Great news, sports fans, they also did the Far Cry 4 PC port!)

"Metacritic is obsolete. Early Access where we work on the game until it stops generating money is the new way to go! Pay us now for games we'll never fix! It's like you get double fined! LULZ!"


They might as well sell themselves to Ubisoft after their latest round of shit.

President Obama, at Mr. Cohen’s home in Philadelphia in 2013 to raise money for Democratic Senate candidates, joked, “I have been here so much, the only thing I haven’t done in this house is have Seder dinner.”

hahahaha such a funny joke, Obama! Remember all your promises about how you were going to change all that shit? Ass.

In any case, Obama will just cave on Net Neutrality, despite saying he "vigorously supported" it when he was running for President, and his stoolie Wheeler has already caved, but is just trying to delay shit so he can come up with the most damning yet apparently least damaging solution.

Fuck both these clowns in the windpipe.

Rocket Ranger was the only Cinemaware game that I never finished. I just could never get past the moon mission, for whatever reason.

It was a fun game, though.

Thank you for purchasing the AC:Unity Beta Test. Considered to be still in Early Access, various amounts of shit in this game will definitely not work, and it may or may not get fixed. We appreciate your money.

On Our Way Back To The Shitpile,

Ubisoft.

Hasn't everyone? That's my favorite way of gaining altitude before I start para-grappling my way around the island @ 90mph.
I was always partial to flying a heli up as high as possible, jumping out, then trying to catch up to it and get back in before it hits the ground.

I like trying to land a helicopter on a passenger jet, then getting out of the chopper and hijacking the jet. Only managed it once.

This should not affect the vast majority of PC players, as they simply suffer from the general shitty performance of our engine.

Was there some management shakeout we're unaware of? I can't fathom why they'd start screwing up now otherwise.

Arrogance. Some assbiscuit in a suit somewhere always thinks he knows better than the filthy peasant customer, and things need to change because reasons, and why are we listening to the imbeciles in QA, etc etc etc. And then shit rapidly slides downhill again until the idiot leaves and gets a job at EA, and the next guy with slightly more sense comes in and makes a few good games until he inevitably also becomes an assbiscuit, and the whole circus repeats.

It's called the EA Corollary. Apparently working for a game publisher turns you into a giant fucking TOOL within a few years.

Did you ever grapple yourself to one of those propane canisters (the short stubby ones) and then shoot it? That's so awesome.

I haven't played any of the Dragon Age games. I've never been a big fan of action RPG types, but it does have the pause/tactical view like the old Infinity Engine games. I've heard so many good things about it, I almost picked up Origins during the past few Steam sales, but ended up passing. I did grab it while it was free on Origin though.

One of the earlier videos of Inquisition made the game look interesting, but still something I'd pick up later on sale if/when I ever get around to playing DA:O. Then I saw some game play footage a day or so ago and the combat animations are goofy. It looks more like dancing than fighting. The mages twirl their staff around, turn their back and shoot spells and shit over their shoulder, and the fighters do all this stupid looking jumping, spinning moves. I hope those are placeholder animations, because honestly don't think I could play it if I had to watch that.

No, sadly that's how the game is, because the ADD generation loved that about DA2...

It's nice to see PC at the beginning instead of the end of the release platforms.

That reminds me, I should get back into JC2. Great fun. I wish I could reset the map though, or at least just the offshore oil rigs. Those were super fun to complete, but there weren't enough of them.

You can just start a new game. The initial mission takes like 15 minutes to complete, after which the entire map is open and ready for mayhem.

I was just about to buy Rogue Legacy on Humble Bundle at 75% off, but I believe I'll go for the higher discount on Steam instead.

I said "Oh - Rogue Legacy! Been meaning to buy that! Well, no better time than on a sale. What? I already own it? What is happening to me?!?"

Steam now just adds every new release to your account automatically.
