First time afaik that the complete BL3 with all DLC has been available <$33 CAD. Then to throw in the complete Bioshock collection, Mafia Remastered, a bunch of XCom games, Civ 6, etc. This is by far the best deal HB has had in recent years. Reminds me of the old days, before they got greedy.

Xristo623d ago (Edited 623d ago )

Definitely a good deal. However, for those interested in BL3, it does not come with the Season 2 Pass (that's the Ultimate Edition). Not saying anyone is missing much, but just to clarify.

FinalFantasyFanatic623d ago

That's a good pack, but I already have almost half of those games and the remainder isn't compelling enough for me to fork out for it (plus none of my friends will take the extra game keys).

I’m more interested in what else he said.

“Neil Druckmann says new Naughty Dog title could ‘redefine mainstream perceptions of gaming’

Yay, more trans lgbtq characters and awful story lines

H94h ago

It will be something like "we erased gameplay all together it's just a movie now"

purple1014h ago

every time naughty dog make a game, you play it and get the feeling "this is not possible'

from the boulder running towards you in crash, on ps1,
to the massive open world of jak and daxter, on ps2,
to the QuickTime events sequences of uncharted on ps3/4

and now we will see what they do with ps5,

Press X for doubt at "PS5"

Arrogant asshole who sniffs his own farts bigs up next game…sounds like typical PR to me

You know what I find interesting? Almost every site reporting this as the main title where the REAL interesting bit of the interview is Neil praising AI and saying it will be used to help push story, characters, dialogue and more.

It’s super shitty to big up AI especially when it comes to story telling and other creative elements.

Just because someone says this type of stuff, it doesn't mean that it's guaranteed to be good news.

You can say this about microtransactions. MXTs revolutionised the gaming industry.

Geez how full of themselves are these guys.

He also said it has "ethical issues we need to address" but of course that doesn't get the clicks.

CrimsonWing6950m ago

I’m all for it. Cuts the time to make a game. Look, Hellblade 2 took 5 years to make, if AI can do that in half the time, as a consumer, I support it.

And they'll cancel 50 of them, then lay off their staff within the next couple of years. I think Embracer's new logo should be a Boa Constrictor.

Ubisoft say AC Shadows protagonists will be "romantically attracted to different types of people"

Ubisoft recently shared more details about Assassin's Creed Shadows protagonists, confirming that both of them will romantically attract and be attracted to different types of people.

Hugodastrevas1d 8h ago

That should please everyone I'm sure...

RpgSama17h ago(Edited 17h ago)

Feudal Japan DEI LGBTQ+ Samurai, sounds very accurate for the time period. Surely a decision made only with historical accuracy in mind.

Crows9017h ago

Or even modern day accuracy.....

Lexreborn217h ago

You have no idea what you are talking about, bet you didn’t know nobunaga was bi-sexual. Or ran maru his is often depicted as androgynous was a “beautiful boy”.

So yeah, feudal Japan had tons of lgbtq and kawaii enough… A BLACK SAMURAI! All without the need of offending a Caucasian because the world is diverse.

VenomUK16h ago(Edited 16h ago)

This story has cracked me up so much! Bravo Ubisoft, bravo! 🤣. So last week everyone was upset that in the long-awaited first Assassin’s Creed: Japan game the protagonist is black. But NOW he is also LGBTQ+ ! It’s like the Ubisoft creative team sat around a table and said “How can we best impress our Kotaku/IGN/Polygon friends and antagonise gamers? Let’s make it woke x 100!’ And then they all silent clapped!

Just you wait until the Star Wars: Outlaws details come out, there better not be anybody complaining about Kay Vess’ dating preferences and the gay droid armies.
