I wouldn't say Ubisoft has been completely bad. They were one of the firsts to come out and publicly condemn the new YouTube rules on MCNs and monetizing game play videos. And I'm having a good time with Watch Dogs despite some of its flaws, so it's not all bad. Just need to have them stop thinking that their DRM is the shiznits and that anyone who complains about it is automatically a pirate, and they might be golden.

Neogaf seems to be a club of "we think the same way" that never lets a dissenting POV in easily or let facts get in the way of what they want to believe (seriously, just try to post a link to the speech Anita Sarkeesian gave at Santa Monica in 2010 where she said that she didn't play games when she told everyone she was a life long one earlier: it got me permabanned, and an earlier attempt got shut down quickly). It gets ridiculous, and I pointed it out on my own channel.

There's a lot of things that the law hasn't caught up to yet in terms of this sort of issue. Considering that gameplays aren't static like movies, music, or books, the same rules don't apply because you have to consider transformative works and how it applies to games. The game itself, such as characters, music, or whatever, is the property of whoever made them (whether in house or they licensed it). However, once you go to play the game, you're essentially interacting wit...

The whole game vs. movie argument has been done to death, and yet, people seem to want to go right back to it.

You can't compare games versus movies because games are not static like movies are. If you do a commentary on a movie like you would a game, then what would change in the actual movie from one person to another? Absolutely nothing, because the movie has a static sequence of events. Even when you have a different style of commentary (which would become a argument...

It is better than what they have been attempting to do now, which is profit for the entire video that, in my case at least, can be 30-40 minutes long (I'm not exaggerating that, either: my Watch Dogs LP so far has videos that have broke the 40 minute mark, and one that's gone to 50 or so minutes). Because a licensed song happens to be playing in the background for a few seconds because I am trying to turn off the audio, they profit for the entirety of the 30-50 minutes that I commenta...

This could, though, be a good thing if YouTube will allow for the monetization to be split between the user and other companies that try to claim the videos that have things like, say, a few seconds of licensed music from a game.

If anyone remembers what Angry Joe went through, you'd know just why it can become a major problem. A five second clip of a song that someone like WMG has copyrighted, and they can monetize the ENTIRE VIDEO that could be 30 minutes long, and whi...

I think everyone got the wrong idea about why people were upset about that announcement. Many were thinking they were just PS3 fanboys acting hysterical. Some were that, but that's not what the majority of those that were upset with it had the issue with.

It was instead them being upset was that they believed the game would suffer in quality as a result of it having to be multiplatform because you have to worry about whether or not something that works on one system will...

So...how are people already getting the game. I bought it off of Steam and it's saying it unlocks in a day and 9 hours? Was there a "buy it this early, get it this early" promo I wasn't aware of?

Or are there just that many trolls on the internet? :P

Nice to see you're just assuming that everyone that has a problem with the game is a pirate because you said so.

Trust me, guys, Giant Bomb is ten times better than Gaf ever will be. It's not as strict, not as biased, and not as willing to put up a firewall for certain people.

GB is on equal par with N4G, I can assure you.

They have a lot of issues with inconsistent enforcing of rules, people disagreeing with their status quo, and insecurity about people complaining about GAF on other sites.

The fact that I was permaed there after someone tried to, once again, bring up some comments I made there about Anita Sarkeesian (someone who GAF has built such a firewall there that it's unreal how bad the status quo has gotten there about her), and then they got mad that I defended and stood by most...

Actually, if you want to talk about the most powerful system right now, some PC gamers would love to speak to you about that one. Not to sound like a fanboy or anything, but all systems tend to be outdated compared to what kind of hardware PC systems can get every year or so. Sadly, many game devs don't take advantage of the pluses there in their ports.

Ubisoft, despite their obsession with DRM, might be an exception (Square Enix is usually another publisher that cares ab...

I actually figured out the trick to it from numerous tests: you have to go to the BOTTOM of the hole sprite, NOT the top. That way, you won't be touching the hole. Not one pixel can be touching that hole. It's THAT picky. Go to the bottom of the sprite before releasing the button. Your neck will return to it's usual length, and you won't be near the hole.

For the FBI guy (I played this way too much when I was younger, and I wouldn't mind doing an in-jest &...

It was bad, but not the worst. At least it had a sense of some playability and, if you were lucky enough to know what to do and how to do it, then you might be able to actually beat it.

To me, there have been worse games that have come out since then, like Superman 64 (which was just a broken mess).

Since it was their oversight, what they should do is just add that onto their list of free games for PS Plus members for May. It would be the easiest thing to do in this case.

Those people who grew up with the 8 bit and 16 bit era will tell you a hell of a lot about music on those systems because of the limited technology. People get very fascinated by the "chip tunes" of those days because of how some devs used propriety chips to get the sound they wanted (Konami and Capcom did a lot of this) because of the limited channels they had to use at the time (five before the chips were used).

Also, you brought up Mega Man. All those tunes had s...

Hey, I won something again. And this time, I actually have a computer with a WORKING motherboard in order to say that I ACCEPT this time instead of learning about it ten weeks later or something.

Yep, that just happened!

Let's just hope we're not expecting things that we don't get that were never promised would be in there. Just remember that these are just rumors that have not been confirmed by anyone. They might be creditable, but until it actually happens, they aren't anything but rumors.

Still, though, I agree: if true, this would be a welcome addition.

The same enemy sets, though, are acting in new ways. Flans are not the physical damage sponge that they were in the first game, and you will see that you have to employ new game plans for those enemies than you had to in FFX due to the new mechanics they added to this sequel. The CTB system let you think out what you had to do next without the need to worry about the mob taking its next turn. Not so here: time isn't really on your side.

Can we please get PS1 Classics that aren't on the PS Store period up there, too? I wouldn't mind playing Brave Fencer Musashi again! That game was so underrated!
