I’d always understood you _weren’t_ supposed to send robocalls to vm because then they know you’re real. Has that changed?

I came to AC way late and Syndicate was actually my first game in the series. In terms of sheer fun and playability, I think it’s still at the top of my list.

That’s funny, I’m actually enjoying Liberation more than I did 3 (had never played either original). 3 was just so sprawling and constantly distracting you from the urgent objective you were supposed to pursue in favor of things that seemed tangential to the plot and largely low stakes. Read more

Just remember, the season pass also comes with two full games (AC 3 and Liberation). If you haven’t played those, even at full price it’s a pretty sweet deal.

That’s definitely the risk! Fortunately, never happened to me.  The bright side is you learn some real online courtesy when you’re afraid of personal ramifications.  The downside is you can’t play anything you’re not at least decent at.

This. I have no idea what the interface looked like now, but I remember very clearly being surprised that there wasn’t a next step where I could set my tag.

Any news on future platform releases of this? I love dungeon crawlers, but anymore they make so much more sense on a portable screen like the Switch.

Any time you find yourself saying, “I don’t understand why everybody is having a problem,” the most important takeaway is that everybody is having a problem. Read more

Right, but you don’t want to be in a situation where good enough is all that’s available. For example, if for any reason game makers abandoned the PC and all you could get was games for console, that’d be a bad situation. Right now there’s choice, and that’s what’s important. Read more

“Perfectly acceptable” is a big problem when you consider the endgame of a product like this is to eliminate the “better than acceptable” solutions like gaming PCs and consoles. Read more

Setting aside all my other concerns about streaming... I participated in the pilot of Project Stream, and I have to say that it was light years away from replacing a console.

You’re not alone. I really wanted to love this game and just lost momentum around 15 hours in. The darkness and constant backtracking without any moments of accomplishment began to feel oppressive. I would dread going back to the dungeon. Maybe that’s immersive, but it’s also self-defeating since...you know...going Read more

“Push us to piracy.” As though a game is like a medication that you can’t live without, so you _have_ to steal it if the price is higher than you think it should be. Boo.

This really was never about what games I like or don’t like—I know that’s the immediate interpretation when someone is critical in articles like these. Obviously I’m here because I typically like the insights and coverage that Jason provides, and I’m disappointed this year that his takeaways are so vanilla. Read more

Ha, you’re right. I played it for the first time this year, got confused there.  Sorry about that : /
