News Comments > Ubisoft Financials - Watch Dogs Sells 9M

I really had fun with this game for as long as I played it, but no denying it was a bit shallow/illogical. All the effort that was clearly put into it had really diminishing returns.

But then, we've been playing and enjoying the hell out of shallow, highly illogical games for decades. So. Um. Hype + massive backlash + base game is actually decent = oh it still sold well. What do you know.

Hopefully they go back to the drawing board a little bit with the sequel and figure out how to make it really sing if they do more, rather than just tweaking a basic formula that is not quite there.

Yahtzee is the last person I would trust when it comes to giving an unbiased and fair review.

Your vehement disagreement and unabashed defense of the game comes off as no less biased, from where I'm sitting. Yahtzee isn't always correct, and he has his tastes, but he's known for brutal honesty more than making shit up.

Woah, since when? Yahtzee is known for making really funny videos that highlight sometimes obscure flaws in games and making a big deal about them, but making you laugh even while you are a little offended at his rant. There is truth and his opinion shines through the videos, but brutal honesty isn't really the point. They are for entertainment.

I really like the sandbox, it feels more put together than other survival games, but I'm really much more interested in story mode. I hope they don't sacrifice that to make a good alpha experience. Feels like their direction could be muddled.

How can they possibly make stretch goals without releasing more ships to buy?

Still interested in Massive Chalice (I've really appreciated the open nature of its development and progress has been decent) and the finish of Broken Age, of which the first part I actually rather enjoyed. I suppose I'll have to do grim fandango as well. Past that, I dunno if I can suffer to follow DF any longer. Choosing to rush this to a 1.0 and drop it is probably the worst of their many bad decisions they've made in the last couple years.

It's... good! Aaaand short. I wanted to wait for a complete game, but gave in. They definitely need to work on those performance problems. Unity does have problems with multiprocessing - I think if they just tone down a few of the high-poly areas they can achieve the same look and feel without killing my 780ti, pfft. Still looks very good for a unity game.

Nice to see this project coming along. It does feel a lot like civ, but also different in a lot of ways. The clans, weather, and survival feel make it a bit more intimate. I love the watercolors, and the hints in the fog of war. I'm glad the tech tree made it in too. The design updates have been really interesting, but also a bit worrying because so many things have been changing all the time.

For instance, clans were added in august. They seem like the core feature the game is built around now.

I would definitely like a client to organize all my GoG games in a nice STEAM-like way.

Yeah I missed this too. So I made my own It works nice for me but would take a lot of work to make it good for other users. The nice thing is it is storefront agnostic, so I can quickly find what games I own no matter where I bought them from. I've found it makes it more likely for me to buy games that aren't on steam, or buy them on sale from a different store.

I'm kind of curious how galaxy may or may not have a place in that. There are times I buy on steam over gog because of achievements, multiplayer, or steam workshop type stuff.

I think this is actually the best time for Grimrock 2. People are greased with some big releases in the last few weeks, but Mordor and Alien both are short shelf-life games. There are some hot titles on the horizon - but they aren't here yet.

And genre-wise it pretty much stands alone, the closest being wasteland 2 which was in development a bit too long and lost a lot of hype. Grimrock 2 came out of nowhere, and it's a pretty impressive upgrade from the first game.

Oh this is the discussion for GK? One adventure game that really didn't need an update - and especially didn't need new voice actors. Need me my Tim Curry, sorry.

And MS continues to shoot itself in the foot. Why should I upgrade when you don't want me to utilize the advantages of the PC to begin with? The left hand isn't even aware of the existence of the right hand with that company, is it?

Rolleyes

I know, right? MSFT competes with itself way harder than they compete with anyone else.

Update: she's canceled the event.

These threats aren't fake. So many women with any kind of platform get these things all the time. It also really has very little to do with gaming, but it's been increasingly framed that way for long enough that it's now a "thing". I don't think that frame is helpful to the actual problem, rather it has escalated it.

I still feel bad for these people who just want to follow their passions without getting constant abuse.

Game has been getting really good reviews... just a bad port. I might pick it up on sale, after the community makes it not suck.

Dont... like... puzzles? The hell is wrong with you people. I guess my only complaint against the first game was that other than the snazzy graphics, it was really no better than what inspired it. Definitely enjoyed it though, for whatever reason those grid-based 3d dungeon crawlers are my cup of tea. Eye of Beholder, Lands of Lore, Anvil of Dawn, Dungeon Master... mmm goodness.

"Mixed" reviews? The only reviews I see on metacritic below 80 are not in english. Unless you count IGN or Gamespot. Which I don't. Reviews on steam are mostly positive, though obviously just reviews of the first part. Sure I'm still gonna wait - probably for potential winter sale - but it's looking pretty up for the alien license for a change.

one of the most mismanaged gaming projects in history

that is such an exaggeration I'm stunned silent

It's even more mismanaged than Duke Nukem Forever. VGReagle told me so.

It's a bit too early to tell. They haven't rewritten the whole game 3 times yet.

No Wasteland 2? I'm honestly shocked. Game is excellent. I've found it to be a lot more entertaining and challenging than D:OS.

It's been in EA for quite some time at this point, and it's been on top-10's before. I guess there weren't that many still sitting on the fence?

I didn't get into D:OS, yet, waiting for my co-op buddies to get ready for it, but I'm really liking wasteland 2 so far. It's a very solid old-school rpg with prettier graphics - I especially like the depth of the dialog system.
