I was unpleasantly surprised to discover that multiplayer on the PS4 required an active PSN subscription.

After getting rid of GTAV and my PS3, I got the game for PS4 only to discover that I couldn't play multiplayer without the subscription.
Very disappointing to say the least.

I'm nowhere near active enough on the console to warrant a monthly/yearly subscription.

You know they announced that in like 2013, right?

Not true at all. They vote quite in opposition to each other most of the time. The Dems are no saints, but they come down on the side of the "people" more often than the Repigs.

Democrats take fish from one and give it to another, and try to put laws in place that allow fish "distribution". Republicans show all people how to fish and put laws in place that make people responsible for their own actions.


Rolleyes

You can't possibly believe that, right? Republicans talk about smaller government and responsibility, but what they actually push for is nothing even close to that. Do a little research on size of government under previous administrations. Then maybe you can also explain how Republicans plan to hold any corporation responsible for anything once they've gutted the government agencies that might have the ability to do so, and passed all the laws they want to hobble trial attorneys, whom they've long demonized. You're delusional if you buy anything they're saying.

Your instance of Windows checks in with the Microsoft servers once every 24 hours, 365 days a year. If it fails to check in every 24 hours, it shuts down and you'll have to call a Microsoft rep to revalidate it.

Just like XB1.

The version skip from Windows 8.1 to 10 was successful in focus groups that thought the number jump indicated "better value". So they're doubling down and skipping versions 11 through 364 next time. Windows 6188 to follow in late 2019.

For the record, I don't feel any RPG came close to D:OS. Maybe a few did story-wise, but everything else that matters it simply owned the lot of them.

Fcuk you for forcing me to google wtf is D:OS is. If you are lazy to type, stop posting poop comments.

Still around, you'll be in for a shocker.

*snipped QTE blah blah*

Yawn. Angry child is angry. Anyway...

If you're referring to post 18, he's spot on about QTEs in general. It's a stupid gimmick, that potentially draws the player out of the game. Or in some cases (Fahrenheit: Indigo Prophecy) forces you to totally take your eyes off what's happening on the screen to concentrate on random button inputs.

Are you interested in this? No? Didn't think so.

I am, actually. I'm not paying 60 bucks for it, but I'll definitely pick it up when it's 5 bucks, which is now my default Ubisoft price point.

The pirating part of Black Flag was awesome, if a little samey and waaaaay too easy. Hopefully Rogue addresses those two concerns, and I'm looking forward to some different environments rather than the green jungle islands that were all Black Flag had to offer.


Edit: Be warned, all who are interested -> The Assassinís Creed Rogue PC development team in Kiev

Ubisoft Kiev are the incompetent assclowns who have been butchering Ubi's last several PC ports, so definitely wait this one out until it's had at least four or five patches, which seems to be the bare minimum for them to make shit playable.
I don't know about the PC port, but I enjoyed Rogue on my PS3. Hopefully the port will be decent.

Anyway, Rogue slightly improves on the ship combat. Ships can now board you, but I haven't figured out the mechanics involved. From what I can tell, only Hunters can board you, and only if you actually let them ram you, so it can be somewhat avoided if you don't get too caught up in big battles. If you do get boarded, it's similar to boarding enemy ships in Black Flag, except that you can't use the "Captain's mini-cannon" to take down enough crew to capture the other ship without ever getting into hand combat.

The ship combat itself doesn't seem harder or easier. I had little trouble fighting superior ships with my Black Flag experience. That's not to say that it's easy to take on a man-o-war; that heavy shot still stings like hell.

The biggest change is actually in the "on foot" part, where assassins can now target you. It's an interesting addition to the game, but it isn't a huge change since it only happens occasionally.

The best part of the game is honestly the main character. I found Shay more believable than past protagonists, and this time around most of the targets you assassinate are assholes that deserved it (which is often not the case), with one HUGE exception that you'll probably have mixed feelings about. It was fun to play a Templar for a change, and the modern-day story was slightly less stupid than Black Flag's (which was already a big improvement over the AC1-3 Desmond conspiracy-theory bullshit that a 5th grader could have written). I definitely recommend it.

Good review, thank you!
