CRank: 20Score: 0

Well the settings try to be historical accurate. Ubisoft pride themselves on it. Not many would notice these minor inconsistencies but the logo inaccuracy seems a bit lazy. It is almost a 100 years out

I think the features are less about Ubisoft wanting to replace AC with Watch Dogs and more to do with how Ubisoft makes games. They have taken the production line model. Far Cry 4 and The Crew took the "Tower climbing" gameplay feature. They see a feature that works and try to put it in as many games as possible.

I do think Ubisoft wanted Watch Dogs to be the next AC as it is a matter of time until the user base really tires from AC. Though I feel the reaction to Wa...

I still wouldn't say it "runs fine". It is fairly bug free but it still has frame rate issues

Lets hope they learn from the first game. It has issues but it also had a lot of promise

Oh gawd yes. Even though it is a Nintendo exclusive (which usual do all right compared to other software on the Wii U), it is a shooter that is aiming for the more family crowd depsite being priced at a relatively high price and with very little mass coverage. It is coming out this month

Well for Oculus to compete it needs to have:

¤Similar or better specs

¤Same or cheaper price tag

¤Be on more devices than just PCs

It needs to have all of that. Even though I feel VR will take off more with the PC crowd than the console crowd; it still needs to be cross platform it give the perception of great value. Being limited to one platform doesn't give that perception

Most likely a redesign. The Xbox One's price has been cut by quite a lot over the last two years (more so at peak times). I wonder how far Microsoft will go without making the console cheaper to manufacturer. In the long term a cheaper consoles that can go down in price further without impacting massively on profits is the better way to go than just cutting the price

"Xbox needs to make a move like this badly, the majority of their studios are either in the UK or the US. Diversity in their studio lineup is needed and could bring them a wider audience abroad where they are badly losing the console market to Sony. Phil Spencer the new head of Xbox has been very adamant on having more first party studios so this is a possibility"

Hiring Kojima isn't exactly the first solution that comes to mind. Considering the guy could easily...

They probably should have delayed it. They are not alone on this but the fix it later approach is getting ridiculous (I am looking at you DICE)

Though I haven't tried it but I hear Bluestacks is a good work around (plenty other apps that do a similar thing).

Not much really. It is just a bit more but rarely (unless buying old games/accessories) is the price sub 20.

I would say prime has saved my bacon on numerous occasions. Last minute buys have become much more frequent

It isn't a word.

You missed off a few letters to make this "word" so that a phrase can be made

It still doesn't make sense

1086d ago 2 agree0 disagreeView comment

This is so bad that this isn't even a stretch. Firstly you haven't used all the letters (sort of a necessity for anagrams) and secondly Jocha isn't even phonetically similar.

I am with you on this. It wasn't supported last time and the new COD doesn't even support last generation system (of which got supported in the last installment).

The feature has definitely made sure these systems feel more future proof but it is no game changer.

They look cheap and nasty

It is alright but no way should anyone pay full price for the New Order. It is very old school and does feel dated in its design. It reminded me of an old PS2 game.

It is a good second tier title (which is strange to see since they have died out in favour of cheaper indie titles) but they asked for way to much at launch

It is interesting about the cut and really highlight how lazy Valve have become. It is the same with their Steam machines. The are going to try and make money of a product someone else makes. With this they are basically trying to make DLC a big thing on PCs. Instead of creating their own compelling content they are just going to put independent products there were free behind a pay wall.

I really don't see the good in a service like this. Sure modders will get paid but...

Gabe (and Valve) have the gift of the gab. I don't see how this will benefit modding in the future. Paywalls have done nothing but stunt growth and limit creativity.

1092d ago 8 agree1 disagreeView comment

I think the point is though it was free and now it isn't. Donate pages have been around way before this and it isn't like the modders are getting 100% of the money (since it is distriputed) through the scheme (even more so when Mods of Mods are monitised). To me it seems it is monetising something that never really needed it in the first place. Modding fostered without it. I doubt paying for Mods is going to help foster talent (probably do the opposite)
