Didn't they already announce DX? Not here, but previously?

I thought all they announced was that mobile game...

No, they announced DX universe, which included another mobile game, a tablet game AND a full-fledged PC sequel to HR.

E3 2014: Remastered Grim Fandango heading to PS4, Vita

While that's good to hear, why not the PC?!

And you can't play the original because...

Good luck getting it to work on Win7. I tried and finally gave up.

Still have the original CD though.

That sounds kinda terrible actually. When I play proper campaign co-op games, I head over to my friend's place and we blow through the entire campaign together to enjoy the story, scripted events, etc.

If all that stuff is turned off in FC4, what's the point?

I dunno, ask Ubisoft. It's a damn sight better than FC3's co-op, however.

Wasn't there some rumour about RDR finally getting ported and RDR2 being announced?!?!

The port rumor was just some dipshit at the Compatible with Windows center thinking he was funny. As for RDR2, they have dropped hints, but it's not been officially announced yet. It's a no-brainer, of course, since RDR sold a shitload of copies.

Far Cry 3 had co-op as well, but it was a separate part of the game. Unless they specifically say "Campaign Co-op", I will believe it's a bullshit side-game. SO many games tossed out "co-op!" on the package, only to find it meant something different from expected.

The FC4 trailer specifically says that it's drop-in co-op, and what it does is just deactivate the single player/campaign missions, but everything else is open. So the fortresses, hunts, etc. and all that stuff counts towards your completion.

More interesting is the news that, apparently, on the PS4, you can co-op FC4 with people who don't own the game.

Trailer is pretty funny. Loved that his biceps implant popped out, and that he keeps running with the headphones plugged in. What would a zombie make of music being blasted into its ears?

I didn't think Spec Ops was all that. The whole "OMG you're fighting fellow US soldiers!!!!" thing went out the window in the first five minutes because, no, you are DEFENDING YOURSELF against US soldiers who opened fire on you, out of the blue, for no fucking reason.

And that Big Bad Thing you do that is supposed to make you feel so bad, eh, whatever. There's no way to NOT do it. There's no option to try to tackle the level without doing the Big Bad Thing. It's just "here you are, you need to press E on the Big Bad Thing to continue on with the game", so yeah, since I want to continue on, I'm going to press E.

If a 'choice' is the only thing I can do at that particular point, it's not actually a choice. It's just me hitting E to keep moving.

I did enjoy the intra-squad banter in Spec Ops, though. Well voice acted, well written, and the guys did a good job portraying their ragged state of emotions as they deteriorated further and further into, well, essentially a massive case of PTSD.

And the level design was gorgeous.

But the writing and the gameplay were terribly, terribly mediocre.

Elephant charges jeep. Jeep turns over and explodes (?), elephant catches explosion to the face, and is fine.

Oooookay.

Wonder if we have any more coming?

Hopefully DX. Also surprised EA didn't say anything about an updated Mass Effect collection that's been rumored.

But I got my GTA, so I'm quite happy. Was really starting to worry as the day went on...

That Weezer video was a riot...

The destruction is cool, but other than that this looks pretty forgettable.

Here's some feedback: Put an actual decent driving model in your game, because the arcade crap you're showing off looks pathetic.

I do want to drive across the US in a game, but not if driving in said game is boring as fuck.

Presumably a multi-million dollar budget and they cant afford actors that can do a French accent.

I see this kind of comment a lot when it comes to games, but believe it or not, it's intentional. Ubisoft is a French company, and their biggest studio is in Montreal. Most of the developers are probably French speakers. It's not as if they are being lazy or ignorant or can't find people with French accents. They just don't want voice actors with thick accents. It can make people hard to understand, and in the worst cases, can be very grating to the ears to hear for hours on end.

This is why you'll see thicker accents trimmed back to be merely the flavor of an accent. Native French speakers usually have very thick accents when speaking English. It's not very pleasant to the ears.

For example, Edward Kenway was voiced by a genuine Welsh actor, but not one with a particularly thick Welsh accent.

Basically, no one wants to listen to more accented voices. They are fucking annoying. It's like talking to Samesh in Customer Care for the 20-40 hour length of a game.


This. Also, when a company DOES get someone with an actual French (or whatever) accent, simpleton dipshit gamers the world over complains that it sounds fake because nobody really even knows what an "XXXX accent" is supposed to sound like.

(case in point: Leliana in Dragon Age Origins.)

My biggest issue with the AC games are the mission design.

STAY CLOSE TO YOUR TARGET TO OVERHEAR WHAT THEY'RE SAYING!!!!

If this has a single fucking eavesdrop mission, they can go fuck themselves.

The running looks exactly the same as the first game, so eh...

Also, I wish designers would stop with this horseshitinsane idea that you can slide into a person from the front and launch them off their feet. All that would happen is that you'd come to a dead stop right in front of them, and they shoot you in the face.

Might be cool still, but this first video is very underwhelming. I was expecting a new movement system that'd be much more fluid.
