    It took me two weeks to realise that there were buttons on the console. And that was by accident.

    Played an hour or so of Far Cry 4

    Yup that's definitely Far Cry. Like, feels pretty much identical to 3 but in a new setting.

    (I realized the embargo on info is up so I should be fine to give general impressions)

    Just fired this game up for the first time. I had to make sure I utterly demolished Black Flag before I would allow myself to continue.

    Changed the language to French right off the bat. Feels good man.

    Also, Initiates? I dunno why I had to recreate a NEW uplay account when I started up Black Flag (I had one running through the last 4 AC games.) And then it doesn't show me as having played any of the previous games. I'm gathering from the Ubi forums that's being fixed? Or has it already been fixed and oh well, data gone? I probably shouldn't care all that much, but I like my unlocks dangit.

    I guess sometimes count out Touchdown Tom.

    the english accents really irk me

    it's like the american accents in dishonored

    What's wrong with those? Gristol isn't England.

    Dishonored is fantasy so it can do whatever it wants but it primarily takes aesthetic inspiration from Victorian England

    Also a lot of the language used in Dishonored sounds like it should be coming with an English accent

    I mean the disappointing thing is, when the game is working it is enjoyable.

    But it can be such a effort to get to that point.

    And I said it in the last thread but if there are any xboners my gamer tag is Blakes V or post yours or whatever.

    Initiates is just not working right now, all you can do is make an account

    the app is actually pretty ok as far as interfacing with it is concerned, the problem is it's currently bugged so it only "saves" the stuff you do if you do it while it's synced up to the game, and any progress you make outside of it doesn't count. add to that the unreliability of the ubi servers and you get an exercise in frustration

    I've encountered some framerate dips on my PS4 as well as the annoying NPC glitch

    none of the weird FPS hitches or the various faceless/crazy hair bugs people have had

    the gameplay itself is rather enjoyable, once you get the hang of the new countering system you really feel like a badass taking 2-3 people instead of yawning at leaving 20 bodies in your wake like in the old games

    and the story is... well, they were obviously going for another ezio. They might have even pulled it off, Arno's story doesn't seem too bad, but we've had 3 AC games + a movie with that brand pf snark-charm, it's kind of gotten old at this point.

    it might have been a solid if uninventive experience if not for the technical/online issues and the pervasiveness of cross-platform bullshit and microtransactions they shoved in there

    I want to do the co-op stuff, but i cannot get it to work. How do i join hey arno?

    Also, i did the "leave the game on, park the protagonist somewhere safe, and goof off on the internet" thing to get some francs. The cafe theater is AMAZING!

    Arno can actually chill at the counter, sipping coffee or espresso! It is french as hell!

    I'm like rank 4...so it was kind of cool when I found myself in a room with a bunch of rank 1s and was being all kickass and stuff.

    I liked to think I was the master assassin.

    I can apply to HeyArno, but the thing says too many applicants have already requested spots. Funny thing, if I let the game suggest a club ("rm6YToddIsCool" or whatever), it does the same thing.

    Yaay!

    hm yes this game has some technical issues

    crowds have pretty bad pop in, mostly in shadows in details but sometimes they'll just change entire models right in front of me??

    I've also had npcs pop in from the aether as I'm running on the street, knocking into me and slowing me down

    and the stuttering is baaaad whenever moving horizontally on a building with an interior, which is a lot of them
