Seeing the complete technical mess that Assassin's Creed Unity is on PS4, Xbox One and PC, maybe it would be smart to not do this?
Come talk to us ubisoft when you have fixed the technical mess that you call ACU I present to you AC: ballerina edition https://i.chzbgr.com/maxW50... he moves so graciously
That's funny. it reminds me of a similar glitch i had in killzone 2. I killed a guy near the beginning and when he died his body was just ragdoll flailing about in mid air. i must have watched that for a good 2 minutes. Obviously it was a glitch...glitches happen but I don't purposely go looking for them but when you see one you just cant help but watch it for a while. then you move on. I've tried to recreate it but....ehh it was funny the first time.
I'm older than most here and I can't remember a game that didn't have a few glitches so unless the game has so many repeat glitches/bugs that it's ruining the game then showing a few bugs glitches doesn't quantify AC Unity as a bad game. Hell I remember old school games like Double Dragon having lots of bugs but its still brings back great memories of me and my cousin playing the mofo shiii out of those games. I think large fps drops are much more of a problem than a few glitches. I'm not buying AC Unity either way since I've spent way too much on games lately, I'm just wondering if all criticism is warranted or are some gamers blowing things out of proportion???
Yeah but in your day they didn't have companies who's mindset was to rush out a bunch of DLC after launch instead of issuing fixes and workarounds. In your day, the gaming industry was considered risky for the companies - NOT the buyers, and justly so. I'm tired of hearing people complain about "entitled" gamers like it's a bad thing. We risk north of $60 time and time again. Technically, we are **Entitled**
The only joke there is right now is ubisoft. Their stock dropped 10% the day they launched ACU.
that's footage from the internal beta months ago.... Nice try tho rofl.
ooo you are right, guys one of the 100 of glitches was footage from the beta.. phew its not like we can find any glitches in the final release version ... oh wait :) https://www.youtube.com/wat... http://i.imgur.com/SU6Jj9r.... http://abload.de/img/141571...
Isn't that bad though...because they still havent sorted the bugs So if they knew about them months ago it's clear they rushed it out. Ubisoft keep digging themselves a bigger hole.
It's actually funny because I wasn't saying the game didn't have glitches. I was just saying why use old footage of a glitch that was in the beta and not use other footage?
But then the ballerina joke wouldn't work
@Mikelarry: +Bubbles for making me LOL. Man those are some funny glitches. I've had one glitch so far and that's where an NPC moved from one end of a room to the other like The Flash. It was hilarious. Oh, and I fell through the world once. Other than that it's been pretty smooth sailing for me.
That's gracefully...damn ubisoft, first watch dogs now this? I'm playing it on the ps4 and there's been a couple of framerate drops but nothing too major. At times I can see moments of brilliance but at it's core it's the same ol assassin's creed.
That was just weird. It was more like paranormal activity than a ballerina.
Any glitch I've seen so far ( 8 hours in), has only ever been something funny. The kind of thing you laugh at for like 2 seconds, and then continue on with your life..... People are taking these glitch complaints a bit too far. Way too much anger.
Paying money for a broken product warrants anger. You wouldn't pay full price for a sports car that only goes 10 mph?
And people like you who excuse rushed out games are THE reason companies continue to do it. It's not acceptable to rush out a game unfinished and patch it later. Under that scenario fine the games unfinished okay we will pay HALF the price of a game and pay the other half when it's finished. No they won't do that because they like suckers like YOU who not only preorder and buy unfinished games day one but then become unpaid apologists for a multi billion dollar company. STOP EXCUSING THIS SH!T vote with your wallet and they WILL get the message. In particular Ubisoft has become a repeat offender when it comes to this practice of showing game footage off a high end PC when the finished product looks nothing like they showed and rushing out unfinished games and review embargo's until a game is already out. They lie and mislead and you sir are either ignorant or a shill paid or not people can't excuse and accept this anymore.
Having fun with ACU but any1 having freeze issues? Game just freezes every now & then somtimes up to a minute or so then unfreezes & resumes normally, after more than 4 times during the same hour...u can imagine my eventual frustration no? Not one to look for such issues but hopefully they'll fix most soon...
lol, got any more of those?
That dev is making fun while their stock has dropped by 9% apperently, PLZ plz plz dont buy this game
@Mikelarry LMFAO, literally in tears. Funny bubble well earned.
The word you were looking for was, gracefully.
I love how there is literally fanbabies in here gloating about having a slightly shittier port of a piece of trash video game that should have never been released. Guess this is what happens when the Xb1 is the lead platform though, huh! You can have this one, Ubi wont get another day one dollar from me.
ahahahhhhh the 2 disagree are mindless buyers.
hell yeah bruh. I love these crybabies on N4G. UUUGH WHYY UUGH UBISOFT SUCKS. Just don't buy it you idiots. Keep trollin, trollin, trollin
...Lol what? Not buying it anytime soon anyways, maybe not at all.
AHAHHAHAHAHAHAHA! That's priceless.
that's pretty good. it's also sad
Ubisoft already makes fun of playable framerates with the game itself.
Hey Ubisoft how about worrying about making games that are finish an don't have so many game breaking glitches smh
Hes not even a dev if you read the article and hes not even referring to resolutiongate (article has been updated) Neogaf and SDF will be all out now to create havoc because the game runs better on x box 1. This game has shattered the illusions of PS4 fans and they don't like it one bit. Does this sound to you like a downgrade from last years AC? Digital foundry. Certainly, from a visual perspective, Assassin's Creed Unity finally brings the series into the new generation, and the results are stunning. The new engine delivers a massive upgrade over last year's instalment, boasting significant improvements in levels of geometry detail on the characters and environments, more complex texturing, and new lighting and shader models that work beautifully in helping to create an almost photo-realistic look to the game The biggest hit here is with frame rates and lets be honest even Ubsioft showed prove the PS4 could only manage 98 dancers x box 1 managed 113. This is more prove the CPU inside the PS4 does indeed run at 1.6ghz and its not surprising to me because Sony UK confirmed this last year. The game tried to do something differently unfortunately the CPU's can't keep up and its effecting both platforms, its not just the PS4. In regards to PC i would not be surprised if the game runs bad on some PC's PC gamers used all different models of CPU's and GPU's. [email protected] PC games don't even use 8 cores the majority of games use 1 or 2 cores max its one of biggest complaints by PC gamers. Reason why PC gamers are excited about directx12 devs might start using more cores with games in the future. I have Rome 2 Total war on PC and you need a powerful rig to run it. And that game only uses 1 core really to be honest. PS3 was way more powerful than 360 it was just harder for devs to work with.
the thing is...these new gen systems are being touted as having 8 core cpu's. The performance of the game seems to stem from ubi not properly using all 8 cores to their best ability. it's like when games didnt run correctly on the PS3 because of poor optimization of the cell and all its SPU's. All the tools are there but its up to the developers to utilize them and with the Ps4/XB1 being more closely related than last gen...there is just no excuse for such poor performance.
If you use the cores correctly, the product will be superior. I hate to bring this game up (again), but if anyone gets the chance, rent or buy Lair for the PS3. Last Gen, they were able to pull-off a game with: -multiple levels that had 25 to 30 square miles for each level (around 15-20 levels [I can't remember, lol]). -1080p (it was based upon what was supposed to be the standard European size of their screen, so it wasn't 1980 X 1080p, but the vertical lines were still 1080p) - Thousands of NPC characters on the ground (fighting in real time... although it seems more so than not your side will lose if you don't help them) - Dozens of aerial allies and enemies in the air And wasn't nearly as buggy as ACU That game, although it was a commercial failure (meh, I still liked it), showed that if the Cores were utilized correctly that a very large, detailed game that can play well is definitely possible.
@knws The Xb1 version runs badly the ps4 version runs a little worse so all you care is that Xb1 runs better than the ps4. Lol
@KNWS You don't even understand that the Xbox One and the PS4 are both using the same laptop architecture do you?
wow look at all those disagrees. It the truth and Sony fans need to come to grip with this.
The key issue is that pre-dx12 all draw calls need to be made from a single core. On Xbox One using dx this uses up an entire core all of the time. For dx12 devs can split this workload across cores. Apparently on the Ps4 it requires hardly any CPU time because its direct x that is slow. See a brilliant tech interview with the plain talking metro tech lead. Very interesting. Its not fan boyism, anybody that understands tech knows that they just did a bad job here, especially on the ps4 port. There is no magic sauce. The xbox one version is badly developed, the ps4 version even worse so. http://www.eurogamer.net/ar...
Gotta love it, Ubisoft for developer/ publisher of the year! /s So they're making fun of it (in) attempt to save face from their own failure. I don't even care if it runs better on XB1, since it still has plenty of issues there. But sure @KWNS lets spin it, truth is if they aimed for parity, it should run flawless everywhere since it required less work.
But you see, they DID achieve parity in that it sucks equally on all platforms. Mission Accomplished. ;)
LOL Thanks for the memories!
It looks like the choice is bad vs even worse, nobody's winning here. That's too bad because I liked their games but they seem to think that having polished game has no value. I might extend my 1 year Ubi games ban depending on what next year's AC looks like.
look how well it went for Ninja Theory's making fun of the DMC fanbase. The game only hit a million this month. Now that was a disaster and their game wasn't even the mess that AssCreed U is.
Well they are arguing about petty things so [email protected] em!
lets see him poke fun when the profits are down and AC brand dumps itself down, this will be the worst performing AC ever!!!! drops - stutters - missing animations - leaning characters - headless characters - rubbish story - short campain cant wait to see FW figures for this one...
It likely won't have a problem selling, but it should fall short of expectations or at least compared to other entries in the series.
Mediocre franchise with turd performance across every platform only thing Ubishaft should be making fun of is them selfs I will not buy anymore of their games this generation.
Ubisoft stock dropped by 9% since release of ACU. http://www.neogaf.com/forum...
Stock market is overvalued anyways, its not a fair guidance to the health of a company these days lol. Research central banks printing money to prop up stock market.
That's common. General rule is stock goes up after announcements/forecasts; stock goes down on actual release of announced product. Happens to Apple every year.
Good, they amde a buggy ass game but i think "resolutiongate" and the console war deserves 10x the abuse that ubisoft are getting.
I already decided not to purchase AC-U when the #ps4noparity campaign got into full swing. I said it before (check comment history)... AC-U could have displayed 1'500/2'500 characters on screen and the framerate would have been better. Nobody would have said 'There's hardly any NPC's in AC Unity'. 3'000+ was pushing it IMO
Wow! ubisoft sucks.
They need to make fun of their BS programing of this game. Assassin's Bleed Frame Rates. Glad I didn't buy that Dog Sh*t
So ppl buy a broken unfinished game yet again, that will undoubtedly get incoming patch, and are complaining why?? Seriously, why are ppl complaining?? Is it the framerate or the xbox/ps comparisson, or the price?? Heres an idea: do what i do and wait 3 months after game us out. I find by this time out, all if not most of the kinks are polished up.......
And price drop
.....or if u want a complete and unbroken game then get a wiiu. They have some decent games now, maybe not too hardcore but definetly decent and at least they're finished. Just a suggestion while u wait 3 Months on polish
Right, because Ubisoft has a sterling reputation.
So people who have pawned off an Assassin's Creed Black Flag copy & paste game as a new game are mocking people who understand and know why Assassin's Creed Unity has nearly the same type of glitches that Black Flag has? You're kidding right?
Bottom line is the game runs like crap on BOTH systems. I have an X1 and It drops below 30 quite often even if it is 2fps more than PS4! I think they went over the number of NPC's that both CPU's could handle :/
not very pleased with Ubisoft's decisions. Their majority sales are on Playstation. but they snubbed their fans for a little cash on the side. Not sure if its good business in the long run. Assassins Creed is out of my wish list this christmas.
This is what happens when greed takes over. The quality of the games goes to crap. Complaints means nothing to them because they know people will still buy the games anyway. You want better quality don't buy the games people.
caught a glitch yesterday where Arno went into stealth and I could not for the life of me get him to stand up. had to restart the game
You'll get the prize this year Ubi, and you will show them... crappiest company on earth
Ubisoft has jumped the shark. I honestly think that company just pushed too hard, over-reached, tried too hard to annualize everything, and are running after their tails to please investors...and I honestly think they are cracking. I think if they don't refocus themselves Ubi will be in serious trouble sooner than most realize.
Ubisoft fix your game(s)
Cool UBI great sense of humour keep up the great work.
