News Comments > Ubisoft Shakeup to Improve Gaming Experience

I wish they would have moved Ghost Recon more into the future and made a spiritual successor to Ghost Recon:Future Soldier.

News Comments > Video Game and Tech Workers Unionization Campaign

28. Re: Video Game and Tech Workers Unionization Campaign Jan 7, 2020, 18:51 maddog
 
Did anyone read the funny story a few weeks back about the guy who works in IT for an auto maker and after he rolled out Win10 to a ladies computer, she had a nervous breakdown about how different it was and went to her union. She ended up filing a grievance against this poor guy and the UAW got the whole Win 10 rollout stopped. It was a pretty funny read. It was in the r/sysadmin group on reddit.

Anyways, I am in my universities union. It has good and bad. They work to get us the odd 1, 2, 3% wage increases but yet they never go to the politicians to get income tax lowered or other burdensome taxes removed. Here in CA we now have a gas tax..sheesh. Funny thing is, as I make more base salary, the union dues go up with it, and of course my income tax does as well. Thanks...I guess.

Regarding this group...I hope they are successful. I have boycotted Disney since they made their IT guys train their Indian replacements. Might be a hard go of it though...[url=]https://www.reuters.com/article/us-volkswagen-union-vote-idUSKCN1TG014[/url]

Why do these games continue to sell so well? People really seem to enjoy playing basically the same game with a fresh coat of paint year after year don't they?

Middle school, high school and college kids. Then everyone under the age of 30.

News Comments > Ubisoft Calls Out Breakpoint & Delays Games

9. Re: Ubisoft Calls Out Breakpoint & Delays Games Oct 24, 2019, 23:58 maddog
 
I thoroughly enjoyed Wildlands. Playing through it again now.

I don't know why they just didn't keep the majority of the gameplay mechanics and just move the setting...North Korea, Chechnya, Iran...no shortage of hotspots they could have used.

It wasn't a perfect game but to me, it was fun.

Or even just take the Ghost Recon Future Soldier world and make it truly open world. Loved that installment also.

I'll be skipping Breakpoint until they add in the AI teammates.

Also fuck their roadmap where they are trying to sell the addition of AI teammates as a special value post-launch feature. LOL. Ghost Recon has always been a squad-based shooter. AI teammates should be the bare minimum at launch. Eeeeeee-fucking-ssential.
Instead they add insult to injury with hints in the game (open beta) that the game was optimized for a coop experience so please go online, join a gang of 12 year olds and STFU about AI teammates. Yeah, fuck you too, Ubishit.

wait...what? I admit I have not been following the press on this game much but are you saying the AI teammates are not there at launch? WTF. This was a day one purchase for me but after reading that, screw it. I'll keep playing Wildlands. Or wait for something else I guess.

I would like to see a more stealth version of Ghost Recon Wildlands.

Never played Splinter Cell: Blacklist though. Might have to go back and take a whack at it.

Haven't the Ubisoft games had this for years? Seems like since Ghost Recon Future Soldier, I've been able to go into the gunsmith area and test out scopes etc.

I have the first one and never played it much since it became too hard on higher levels for a solo player.

I wish this had AI teammates but sadly no.

Meh, since moving to the LTSC version of Win 10 I haven't been able to play my old copy of GOW 4. Can't say I miss it.

All my Steam games run fine so I could care less.
