UBISOFT PROUDLY BANNED IN THIS HOUSEHOLD SINCE SILENT HUNTER 4 AND WILL BE FOREVER.

Haven't missed a thing.

Impressive resolve, congrats! I think The Crew PS4 is going to be my first ubisoft game since the HOMM6 rootkit/not functional game fiasco.

I try to avoid Ubi, just haven`t managed to completely drop them.

It's a bit hard to follow their forums at the moment but it looks like if you're a backer you don't get a refund; if you preordered you do.

I wonder what the Kickstarter terms & conditions are for refunds...

If your project is successfully funded, Kickstarter’s Terms of Use require creators to complete their projects and fulfill all rewards as promised. If you are unable to fulfill all of your project’s rewards, you should make every reasonable effort to find another way of bringing your project to a satisfying conclusion for backers. Steps should include offering refunds, and detailing exactly how funds were used. For more information, see Section 4 of our Terms of Use.

Looks like Kickstarter needs to go after Braben here.

We have the exact same problems as the US with virtual monopolies/duopolies Canadians have less choices in everything comparatively! Either regulate all those fuckers and set a flat rate or really open up the markets and ensure competition. We're still overpaying and are caps are even worse than in the US so is that what US can learn?

I'd agree that the article paints way too rosy a picture of internet in Canada. Our virtual ISP monopoly is quiet and polite while they screw us.

why don't the fucking parents pay for their brats? People without kids are so sick of getting screwed by the breeders all the time. Take some fucking responsibility for your progeny.

Kids are expensive, most parents are paying a lot for them. We could have a society without kids, but it wouldn't last long. The children of "breeders" are there to pay high taxes due to overspending from previous generations and take those jobs caring for old people among other things.

Big difference between official reviews and user ratings so far. Will be interesting to see how this ends up.

Metacritic Critic Score 87
Metacritic User Score 5.6


Metacritic user reviews are as useless as the critic ones. "it doesn't run well on my low end pc. 0/10"

Watch some streams on twitch, decide if you like what you see.

I trust user reviews more than the critics.

Edit: As for EA hate, I'm not sure if that holds up on most of their titles. They do seem low in general, though in comparison Battlefield 4 got a 5.9 which is higher than DA:I. Still early though.

I see a minority 35.64% who dont care, but a majority 64.36% who do care.

Good point, looks like the majority care about having an offline mode.

I actually dont understand some of the arguments

That would be because only some people care about:
1) Broken DRM free promise
2) Broken offline promise
3) Not being able to play due to slow/erratic/no internet
4) Servers being shut down in the future, so the game being useless at that point

If others don't care about those, then they believe it shouldn't matter to anyone else (aka Orth syndrome). Glad I'm not a backer, I would be one of those getting a refund - whether they wanted to give it or not.

Edit: For proof on 1+2, there is some on the official elite forum thread about it.

Are YOU affected? do YOU lose anything by this decision? do you KNOW of anyone who's affected by this decision?

Yes, Yes and Yes. Not everyone has internet uptime 24 hours a day, 365 days a year every year.

you need internet to hate-fuck the forums

I'm really not sure on how one "hate-fucks" the forum here, but I'm not paying to post here. If I bought Elite, I'd be paying.

Slick wrote on Nov 16, 2014, 18:06:
cause if not they'd just be acting like total twats right?

So since I've been affected in the past...who's the "total twat"?

Slick wrote on Nov 16, 2014, 18:06:
go vote against gay marriage while you're at it. hoo boy something else that doesn't affect you at all

Now why wouldn't gay marriage affect me? Do you think I don't know anyone who's gay? Of course I do.

Slick wrote on Nov 16, 2014, 18:06:
it would be rather psychotic to kick up such a storm of hate over something which LITERALLY doesn't matter.

It is quite psychotic to kick up a storm of hate against those who actually do have an issue with this decision.

The vast majority of serious gamers are online all the time.

Adam? Adam Orth? Is that really you?

I was definitely thinking that too, and it worked out so well for Adam.

So how is DRM good?

Guess I'm not a "serious gamer" by that definition. Braben really should have advertised it as online required from day one. So what happens when they shut the servers down at some point?

This one went from the "too expensive/risky to back" to "wish I had backed it" to now "glad I didn't back it" pile.

As an online only title, I'm now thinking there's other games I'd rather play - given I prefer single player games. (And no - forced single player online is not a single player game)

And yes it serves a purpose in an era where corporations have bought out and gutted the medias traditional role as watchdog.

Not when it won't investigate a lack of ethics in journalism, all because that's not a good enough story for them. The CBC works for the Liberal and NDP parties.

As much as I like Sony, some of their decisions...sigh. I'm guessing the user blocking is by username not account ID? And as for Driveclub, I was waiting for the PS+ version as a trial, but have decided to go with the Crew instead.

It's sad that the left can make me pay for propaganda/lies against me. Too bad there's not enough political will to eliminate the CBC, it would guarantee an election win for whoever did it.

GOG's fall sale has begun, with a couple of free games. One immediately, and another you have to visit once per day to get.
