Meh, I don't know. I personally think that demonization goes absolutely viral all the time. Mostly on Blues, but also on the net in general. Of course it's only my opinion but I really like both TWD and TWAU still as much as I did the S01E01. I don't see where all the bad mojo is coming from and I don't care either -- it's too easy to get prejudiced by the over-analytic ramblings of self-entitled critics.

Hey now. That's not true..... I'm not overly analytic...

Couldn't care less about puzzles and gameplay. If you're not playing these games for the story, and don't like it that you're moreso watching the game than playing it, stop playing these kinda games.

I loved the latest TWD. I loved ep2 of TWAU. My only gripe is that the episodes are too damn short.

We used to have the best of both worlds with the last season of Walking Dead. The way it is now i'd prefer if they just made it a miniseries. I love the story, it definitely has me intrigued. There just needs to be more game in this game. My wireless gamepad timed out 3 times from lack of input.

To some 105 lb annoying chick.

All points are true, except this one. Bloody Mary is not just any annoying chick, if they put her in as old lore tells it she is literally akin to a prime evil ;p

That said, I maintain that this removes itself further and further from actual gameplay. It's a dialog and weird cut-scene thing, a visual novel in a way... but there was no actual puzzle solving. Like literally NONE.

I didn't think I'd agree to this opinion but after ep2 i thought they'd fix this again. They did not. It's a good movie to watch and click through, but it's becoming a really crappy game

I'll grant u that bloody Mary is essentially the boogey man. But the second she popped out of the limo with the colt .45 I said to myself "she's got silver bullets". So where was my option to scale the building and try and pounce on her from above. Instead of charging head fucking on in the prescripted cutscene. I hate being railroaded in one direction in a game that prides itself on choices changing your path. I do love how we could kill tweedle. Honestly, how many times were we supposed to let those retards shoot us.

This irritation is also what left Markath in Skyrim a smouldering ghost town because I refused to allow dumb grunt guard to arrest me. I'm the god damn dragon born!

The 2nd episode was so bad it made me not care about the 3rd

The 3rd is just as bad. I completed it in under an hour, there was no puzzle solving to speak of. I dont care for the turn that both this and Walking Dead have taken lately. They've each removed almost all game play and instead just have you selecting dialog choices between cut scenes.

While I do enjoy the story. I'd much rather this simply be made into a series or movie, since that seems to be what they want it to be anyway. Even our choices seem quite trivial. The only difference in outcome is a slightly different bit of dialog in one conversation later on.

What really irritated me in this one is that there's a fight right at the end. You're given choices on how u wanna go about it but it'll end the same every single time. And spoiler alert, you lose the fight. To some 105 lb annoying chick.

I would re-buy this game if it was on Android tablets. If they want to make it for iOS, more power to them. The game is great and the more platforms the better. That said, the exclusion of the largest tablet OS on the market seems odd to me.

Also, if you own FTL on GOG, the download available through your account has already been changed. It appears you have to re-download the entire game to get the "Advanced" part. Of course, the "entire" game is 211 MB, so no big deal.

Because iPad has a single aspect ratio and small # of devices to test for. Android is a nightmare to support for developers.

This is very true. I wrote a little word game for android and windows phone. Windows phone was easy. I could run all my testing in the emulator and when I tried it on an actual device, it was identical. Android was a nightmare. It ran perfect on my HTC evo. It ran perfect on a nexus 7 and galaxy S3. But it crashed, every single time on a galaxy tab. Everytime. So I dumped the log and it referred to a null object at a specific line. At that line of code I manipulate an object after testing to make sure its not null. For some reason that specific tablet would nullify the object after the null check. I have no idea. What I had to do was remove that device from the compatible devices list on the store page. There are thousands of devices, I couldn't even guess which others have issues.

Plus, and I hate to say it cause I was a big android supporter. But there's no money there. Your game gets pirated almost immediately, I make way more money off the windows phone store than android. Despite the massive popularity difference. My friends with iPhone dev licenses tell me its even larger between iPhone and android.

It's funny that in order for anyone to start using it, they have to give it away for free. XD

It isn't really "free," though. You can't build a computer and download it. You can't upgrade your PC to it.

They just dropped the licensing fee to manufacturers for devices with screens under 9".

My big fear here, though, is where will they then get their revenue from? It's only losing like $10 or $20 per device, I think, but I don't know if I trust wherever else they'll find that revenue.

Same place Google makes their revenue. Data mining and getting people buying content off their ecosystem.

The Oculus forums are just lighting up. Mostly with people who don't like it. But you should read the posts by the faithful. They're almost pure hilarity.

Do we know if Sony is planning on Windows support? There is an opportunity here for them to jump in and "save us" from evil Facebook. Like they did to MS last year after the first XB1 announcement.

I'm hoping Valve makes a move.

As for MS, they'll probably just build their own headset. After the market is saturated with them, and then wonder why they can't get a foothold. Apple will also be late to the game, but somehow they'll have filed every single conceivable patent around VR back in 2007 and start suing everyone else for stealing their invention.

You should go look at the official oculus forums. They're lighting up. The sale is almost universally panned by the backers. Both worried about what this means to the PC gamers base, and to kick starter backers wondering where their share of the 2 billion is.

Completely off topic.

Facebook just bought Oculus. I don't like this.

My first thought was not favorable either, but on the other hand Facebook has the money backing to take Oculus Rift beyond where it would have been if they hadn't. Nothing we can do about it now, except hope for the best.......


Hope is all we have. But I also hoped EA wouldn't touch bioware. I was super stoked about Oculus, but now I think Valves unannounced tech might be the best chance at saving us. Facebook didn't buy them cause vr is cool. They did it to socialize the crap out of it.

I really enjoyed Episode 1. Made me sad to see Irrational dissolve. We need more story driven games and less MP twitch shooters where all I do is get mowed down by teenage cyborgs.

Eventually reviews will get worse, sales will fall, and spinoffs will get cancelled. Then there will be a year with no new AC game. And a year or two later it'll get rebooted. Hopefully all the bad design decisions will be gone, and something more solid will emerge. It still has a lot of good qualities. They just need to focus on what is working and not be afraid to trash the rest. Sadly, that won't happen until an AC game flops hard.

man i agree with you so hard it might just create an agreement singularity. AC's design is so tired and lazy now that it really needs to be burned to the ground and rebooted. most glaringly, the same 4 open world missions need to get thrown out in favor of a lot of custom missions. what were they - kill somebody, follow somebody, race somebody... something else. really, with as many devs and they've got working on this, they couldn't ditch the lazy formulaic stuff and have all that creativity produce custom story missions?

i've had AC3 in my steam lib since it came out and i really wanna finish the story, but i just can't bring myself to unlock another. god. damn. viewpont!

I'm afraid the internet cannot tolerate any kind of agreement. One of us must leave.

if they really wanted to cut ties with the past -literally- they should just do a modern AC with tech out the wazoo. throw all the series conventions out the window and let a new reputable studio take a crack at it.

There's already like 10 studios involved in the AC games. They're huge productions. But like everyone has said on here. They dont seem to realize what's working and what isn't for these games. Giant open go anywhere worlds. Works! Sitting on a bench listening. Doesn't work! Large towns filled with active npcs. Works really well. Follow missions. Has never worked in any game ever.

While I don't mind the French Revolution, why not skip forward like 5 years and do the Napoleonic Wars? You already have the naval combat engine and that was a global conflict.

I suspect that'll be covered. AC3 covered a 20 year timespan. AC4 was about a decade or so. Maybe a bit more.

Agreed. It's just old at this point. I think the French Revolution is a great period of history for a game but at this point I'm pretty far into franchise fatigue. Without the naval combat to prop it up I doubt I would be interested in more of the same. I'd like to see some dramatic changes to several areas of the game. With 800 people working on these things you would think they could do more than the repetitive stuff we've been seeing.

True. The follow missions need to go. They've never been fun. Not once. Ever. Frankly I'm not too crazy about being an assassin. The best part about the games was the open world adventure. Black Flag exemplified this by letting us sail wherever we wanted, diving out and going where ever we wanted to on the island. Until, begrudgingly, I decided I had to keep moving along and resumed the main mission. Which was of course to follow some boring NPC for a mile, only to fail the mission right at the freaking end when I'm spotted and have to start over again.

Yeah, they need to go back and do some story work as well. The combat has been improving a bit with each game, but not dramatically. It's still not up to the level of Arkahm. For me, I enjoyed the whole precursor race and saving the world bit while it lasted (I'm not going to get into the enormously anti-climactic ending). But now that the world is saved, I'm not sure why we care about the whole conflict. Are we going to have to stop the Templar's from enslaving humanity in every game?

I dunno, I'll still get this one, cause I really enjoy the leap back into history. And it's one of the better AAA series overall. Hasn't gotten as stale as CoD yet. But that might just be because I got to be a pirate the last time. Man, everytime I stepped out of the animus ingame, I felt a great pity for my real-life life.

Yup. Today, my children are so spoiled. There's no hunting for quarters, or begging strangers for change outside an arcade. Today, I have this conversation with my kids.

Son: Daddy I want to play that race car game.

Me: Forza! Sure, "Xbox, on!"

Son: No, the other one, the old one.

Me: Oh, Burnout Paradise on the PC! Ok, I'll just fire up steam, and redirect the output. Turn on the x360 gamepad. Turn on the big screen tv to input 3. Enable Nv 3dplay.

Son: No daddy. I just want to play it normal. Not in 3d...

Me: ...... Go to your room.
