    whatya guys think about the engine? Shit looks sick aswell normally I stay away from the hype and fail train that is shooter mmos but this game is the exception. With all the news we’vee seen and how great their devs have been with their community though, there is no way they can screw it up. It’s made by massive and not montreal btw, so no qqs about Watch Dogs and shit.

    What do you guys think about it? Basically sleeper govt. agents set up to take back NYC 2 weeks after a virus outbreak that kills off the population and forces them to leave the city. This isn’t your classic post apocalyptic though because your goal is to save the city from it being lost forever and return it’s anarchistic nature back into a civilized society and into the hands of the Govt. Nice change of place from your usual hopeless post apocalyptic bore that’s been done to death.

    huggles please

    First of all ubisoft is more loyal to sony than microsoft, so you’re wrong there.

    Second of all, it’s coming out for pc too.

    Third of all, blaming ubisoft for the state of a game is stupid, it’s the production teams fault if a game is good or bad, and massive seems like a very good group of devs and have been very open with their community so far, and have released a shit ton of gameplay footage etc.

    If anything, qq about uplay and that’s it because that’s the only thing you can qq about. At this point in time at least. Plus it’s Tom Clancy. Pls, I don’t know many bad Tom Clancy games.



  • I am cautiously optimistic.



  • inb4 it lags like shit on pc and it never gets fixed

    60 fps cap too

    FPS Cap? I don’t think that will be the case, but even if it were shooters don’t need 120 fps and a 144 monitor for it to be playable unlike chiv lol. They already discussed optimization thorughly and say it will not be a crappy console port over to pc like watch dogs or any other games that do that. Look up the community Q&As



  • Oh wow, that looks absolutely beautiful and very realistic!

    Now watch as I edit .ini files to make the game look like Minecraft so that I can actually play it.



  • games that do a ton of promotional videos before launch tend to suck

    marketing > gameplay

    correlation does not mean causation bae, unless every triple A title you’ve ever played is terrible and every coperation that makes money releases shitty products. It’s true they over hype every game, but just because the advertise doesn’t mean the game is going to suck.

    Skyrim overhyped, delivered on it’s hype. Gta 5 delivered on it’s hype. The last of us delivered on it’s hype. And shooter and assassins creed games do as well, you get what you expect, excluding acIII however, pretty decent gameplay but shitty story.

    Somtimes, a game doesn’t have to be original to be good. It just has to do what it wants to do that isn’t original, extremely well.



  • marketing > gameplay

    otherwise they wouldnt be putting x20 more resources into it

    CoD is a good example

    now this is example of a good engine

    that’s rock solid logic tbh, and I keep the crocodiles away by typing tbh.

    “that has no affect on whether or not crocodiles appear!”

    Well do you see and crocodiles?

    But in all honesty you can’t make the generalization that every game with large amounts of hype and marketing is always terrible. Nope.
