Whew, these guys are going even faster than I thought you could! Really interesting from the first minutes already. Thanks for the share.If you're into Speedruns, then I recommend watching the N++ GDQ speedrun. It's pretty awesome!
Is this a threat?After a pointed departure from Steam releases in recent years, Ubisoft might be reconsidering thanks to Valve's recent new handheld announcement: the Steam Deck.www.ign.com
Already asked for portstook this survey, it's usual "where do you play? how much? which genres? blah blah" but it still another chance to ask for more ports
Is this Steam Deck related?
Bit late but as I have played it for a couple weeks I can chime in. It's very, very similar time gating to Animal Crossing, and I believe they added that notice in response to some criticisms about that. You CANNOT just grind through the game. Each NPC only ever (so far) gives one quest per day max and sometimes none. Resources regenerate once every 1-2 days (seems to vary). Shop refreshes per day, etc.Looking at the game description, it looks kinda conceptually similar to Animal Crossing.
AC runs in real time, so you can theoretically play it 24 hours a day, but after a while you won't have much to do.
So the notice sounds to me as the game is designed to offer enough content for 1-2 hours of daily play.
Pretty much where I'm at, yeah. I used to love the Assassin's Creed games but I just can't bring myself to waste that much time on such a bloated, cookie-cutter experience these days, I value my free time way too much.I honestly can't say that Ubisoft has released a single game since their departure from Steam (or even earlier really) where I thought "damn I really want to play that".
Piece of shit indie devs that can steal your shit after 20 years and piece of shit valve for letting them do so. Remove all indie trash from your wishlists and refund, cancel steam dicks preorders. And if in EU sue their asses.Regarding the issue with X-note and Train:Afterlife Steam revoked keys:
I've said this years ago to friends and said it like a bunch to random people and some just think im an idiot which is true but besides the point but they've slowly merged all of their franchises into the same exact game and no one noticedwhat goods? it's all f2p gaas trash now
yup, that too ... very much soI've said this years ago to friends and said it like a bunch to random people and some just think im an idiot which is true but besides the point but they've slowly merged all of their franchises into the same exact game and no one noticed

As far as XSEED/Marvelous releases go, it's actually less expensive than Daemon X Machina or Kandagawa Jet Girls -- at least in my region.Jeez, this is expensive.
But this one is a remaster of a 10-year-old PSP game... Anyway, I will grab this down the road as Akiba is like my second home. I will never get bored at that place.As far as XSEED/Marvelous releases go, it's actually less expensive than Daemon X Machina or Kandagawa Jet Girls -- at least in my region.
It's the same pricing tier as Mineral Town, Sakuna, and Fate/Extella. Still, I'll let it simmer for a bit in my wishlist.
Oh... oh God... you can't turn it off? Is it really bad?Just played the Samurai Warriors 5 demo. Well, it's musou. And it performs well enough, I think I'll give it a try once the full game is out.
My only complaint is the stupid chromatic aberration, didn't see an option to disable it.
I loved Black Flag!IMO the series peaked with Black Flag.
Dunno if it is just "recently". Getting a succesful IP, copying its model to other games until fatigue settles, then panic to find a new franchise to be ultra sucessful and repeat the cycle is what Ubisoft has been doing for a while now. Original AC basically made them do all open worlds with similar gameplay style, with the disappointments after Unity making them go into more RPG form.I've said this years ago to friends and said it like a bunch to random people and some just think im an idiot which is true but besides the point but they've slowly merged all of their franchises into the same exact game and no one noticed
Maybe it got into a limbo when Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment is being acquired by EA?I'm hyped for the Lego LAAT Gunship!!!!! I've always wanted one since I was a kid. But they were always too expensive. Now I can have one and also no new news about the Lego Star Wars game.
I agree, my least favorite part of any AssCreed game are the bland tailing missions. What I loved most about Black Flag were the naval battles. The game felt a lot like a pirate simulator -- you captain your very own ship, sing sea shanties, attack and capture enemy vessels.I loved Black Flag!
A few nitpicks though...
Why did every main mission on land have to be a boring tailing mission? EVERY. DAMN. MISSION!
The way the story drip fed you side content could make the open world experience a bit weird as well. A fort marked on the map that you couldn't attack, since it was the tutorial fort you attacked halfway through the story. You know, when you had already cleared all the other forts in free roam?
Otherwise, I totally loved the game and its setting. Edward is probably the best AC protagonist in the entire series.
Heh, exact same here actually.The last Ubisoft game I played was Might & Magic X, and they just shutdown the (DLC) servers and delisted it. Bastards. Oh, and South Park: The Stick of Truth was around the same time too. I can't say I've been tempted to play anything else since.
