Quote from: Autistic Angel on May 12, 2015, 08:44:35 PM

Polygon is reporting Assassin's Creed: Syndicate will have no multiplayer component:

Quote from: Polygon
"This game will be single-player," said Guillemot. Asked to clarify his comments, he added, "You don't have a multiplayer mode on this iteration," referring to Syndicate, "because we want to spend all our time on making sure the single-player is excellent. And it's coming along extremely well."

Reached for comment, a Ubisoft representative confirmed to Polygon that Syndicate is "a single-player only game."


I had a great time with the multiplayer in Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood but haven't touched it since.  Considering how aggressively it was integrated into Unity -- and how slipshod the rest of the game was -- I'm perfectly comfortable with Ubisoft narrowing their focus to get thing right again.

-Autistic Angel
That's both reassuring and disappointing.  I played a decent chunk of the co-op in Unity and it was actually enjoyable at times.  On the flip side, I can easily see how that approach left them with a buggier product than a straight SP game would have.

Funny rename aside (originally known as Victory), Ubisoft announces the next game, due October 23rd on current gen/PC.  New protagonists Jacob and Evie are brother and sister and the narrative is expected to bounce between the two.  It is set in Victorian London with a lot of the criminal underground. 

Trailer

Gameplay

I know the last one sent a lot of people away, but I still have a bit of hope for a better version of Unity, which was improved over time to be mostly enjoyable.

I see Tilt's point, but this is one company that I think deserves my pre-order "vote".

This is probably one of the worst games I could have picked to make a stand about if the purpose was to gather support for my case, but it just irked me way too much when I saw CDPR celebrate the preorders in public, with the playerbase celebrating along with them.

To reply to your message about other things people preorder, the answer is..... Cars. A LOT more expensive, unknown quality, and it flies in the face of the "never buy a first year production run" adage.

I've admittedly never bought a car, so I'm not entirely sure about the process. I would think cars are more of a known quantity though, right? While the comfort and overall production quality may vary, you pretty much know what you're going to get even if you order it months before it's ready. Am I wrong?

Quote
I'm assuming you are against early access games also?

Not against the concept as such, only against the blatant abuse of early access that many amateur developers are doing. Early access can be a great thing in the right hands. Take Darkest Dungeon for example, a game that was truly playable AND fun, to the point where many felt it could have been released as a full product already, even if it was missing tons of features. With early access, you also have the luxury of gathering actual player impressions before making your purchase, so if the product is total crap, it's your own fault if you buy it and then regret it.

I'm also not against crowdfunding. The difference between crowdfunding and preorders is that the former is a necessity to even get a product created in the first place, while the latter makes no difference in that regard. One does positive things for the games industry (just look at the fantastic Kickstarter games we've received over the last few years), while the other does negative things.

Edit: Guys, I apologize for derailing the thread with this stuff. To my defense, CDPR started this conversation for all practical purposes. For the record, I'm very excited about The Witcher 3 and will be eagerly devouring reviews tomorrow. If they are good, I will have few issues preordering. At that point we have a much better idea of what we're getting. Most games don't give us the luxury of preordering after reviews though.

If you want to make any kind of statement, pre-order after the reviews.  I get that early access games can be a huge risk, as can pre-orders and mis-led previews with glowing hype and lies. I have Aliens: Colonial Marines in my steam catalog, bought heavily on the promise of the co-op and polish they displayed in the infamous preview, so I know first hand how the system can be abused.  I've got several early access games on steam that were either abandoned (Space Base) or changed direction so wildly that they no longer resembled what they set out to be.  As a result, I no longer throw money at crowdfunding or early access games that don't have a healthy amount of positive reviews or being able to watch streamers play.  It limits my risk to a more acceptable level. 

I had no intention for derailing it either, but I felt that CDPR was being maligned unfairly when they are one of the few who set out to change the system.  Yes, they started the conversation, and it is one worth having imo.

Quote from: Caine on May 11, 2015, 05:00:37 PM

Or, people want to make a statement that they are willing to support a game and a developer who doesn't pull the same pre-order shenanigans that almost every other company does.  CDPR  is not offering different in game content depending on who you buy from, only physical goodies or digital for GoG/Steam.  None of this exclusive quests/weapons/armors like most retailers.  They have also committed to a lot of free DLC at and after launch.  This is a a stance I and many others get behind and want to show them and the industry how we want pre-orders to be structured.  

Tell me, how exactly are people making this "statement"? By preordering? The only message CDPR is getting from that is "these guys preordered". Why did people preorder, they might ask. Who knows? All they can do is speculate. In the meantime, other companies are looking at these 1,000,000 preorders and thinking "holy fuck, I need to get me some of these!" They were just told that preorders work, and that companies who don't get this amount of them just aren't adding enough incentives. Hello day 1 DLC, "free" for preorders! Hello season passes for DLC content that they're going to tell you about sometime in the future, but you sure as hell need to buy it now while it's hot!

They say the road to Hell is paved with good intentions. Your "statement" just built a 6-lane highway of good intentions. Destination: Hell.

Look, CDPR is a great company that has a good track record of, uh... two games. Both were wildly different for their genre, and the first one is commonly shit upon today when people look back on it (though I still love it). This third one is even more different and going into dangerous new territory (huge open world, a pretty solid warning signal for any game franchise). Is it going to be a great game? Very likely, and we'll know for sure tomorrow. Right now though? You're paying money for a product that isn't out, without knowing anything about its actual quality beyond what the developer has spoon-fed you.

Preorders are seriously hurting the industry right now. There's a plethora of good articles and YouTube videos about this. For anyone who's new to the concept that preorders are bad, I recommend using Google for a bit. Others have made this point already in much better ways than I might be able to do here, so I'm not even going to try.

And before anyone throws themselves into the defense of preorders right now, ask yourselves this: What products beyond games do you buy before they are done and tested, based on the creator's controlled marketing efforts alone? Movies? Nope. You get reviews of those first. Physical goods? Please.
To answer your questions:

People are making a statement that this form of pre-order is worth our time, when a company handles it like CDPR has and not held back content for individual retailers.  If Fallout 4 goes with that route with retail bonuses and sees a lower # of pre-orders over all, maybe they'll go back and take note of how CDPR handled it and was rewarded by their customers. Beyond speculation, CDPR can also reach out (as they have done) over social media or via their site.  It's imperfect, I grant you this, but as they have had a different approach to their games in the past, I give them the benefit of trust that they are taking notice of why their game is doing well already.  

Next, did you not see that they are not adding in a ton of incentives beyond what games have traditionally offered for pre-orders?  All of the free DLC they have already announced would instead have been pieced out to each retailer, instead they are giving it all away to everyone who buys/rents/borrows the game as a show of their thanks to us for playing.  If other companies see this model and decide to keep parting their DLC then they missed the message.  CDPR have been vocal on this and you can find this on google as well.  

As for their "two games", how many people give Bethesda before trusting their games?  Did we all wait until Skyrim before deciding they were worth betting on?  No.  What about Bioware?  Black Isle?  Now, are we giving them our money and risking losing it on an inferior product?  If we buy digital, sure that is a risk, but it's no different from post-release in that we cannot recover our losses by selling.  The week early reviews also serve to reduce our risk and give us an out if it tanks.  No release day embargo like any number of recent games.  I'm sure you can agree that this is an improvement.  

Yes, yes, go on and repeat the mantra that "pre-orders are bad" because someone somewhere said so.  Can you not see that even if you and all of your friends don't pre-order, you aren't making a statement at all?  Pre-orders here to stay no matter who believes otherwise, so the best we can do is to affect change in how they are presented to us.  Negative reinforcement has no meaning when the only way to send a message is impossible to discern.  On that, we can agree on.  We can only make the statement that "CDPR did this for their pre-order/DLC situation and got this result"  and hope they see that.  

Finally, have you ever bought movie tickets in advance of the reviews?  Stood in line for a phone before it launched?   If so, consider yourself in the minority as that happens with every major film and every iPhone update.  It happened for the Apple watch.  Whenever a product is highly anticipated, people will invest in it before it launches.  Physical goods?  Yes.  

PS
Can you discuss this without insulting our intelligence?

They're celebrating one million preorders for this game right now, and that just makes me sad. This game could be the best game ever, and CD PROJEKT RED has a well-deserved good reputation, but people are still handing over money for a product they have no idea whether or not will be awesome, great, good, mediocre, or plain bad.

A million preorders is cause for the industry to bow its head in shame and sorrow. This is what our hobby has degenerated into, and it's not looking like it's going to become better any time soon.

Preorders will be fine in two days, after the reviews have been allowed to sink in. At that point the preorder is justified. Right now though, this is a dark day for gaming, and that it's being celebrated makes it even darker.

To those of you who preorder games blindly: Shame on you!

I picked up Borderlands on PS4 pretty much just to play the pre-sequel.  On PC, I may load up The Forest or more 7 Days to Die. 

I got a small chunk of time in with The Forest (laughably bad bugs aside, it's fun) and a huge chunk of Pre-Sequel.

I'm going to try to wrap up Pillars of Eternity. I've hit max level and just need to go finish up the Endless Paths then hit the end. Terrific game but I've focused on it absolutely exclusively since release and I'm craving something different now.

Assuming I do knock Pillars out this weekend, I'll probably chip away at either Dragon Age: Inquisition or GTA V, but I have no illusions on finishing either of those. My whole backlog is being put on hiatus once I get Witcher 3.
I've resigned myself to shelving Dragon Age and only tooling around in GTA when the mood strikes me.  DA is too big of a drag and I've already beaten the SP of GTA.

I too wish they would make a new R&C game, but will settle for a remake of 1 as I never played that.  I should load up the last full R&C game again as I didn't get quite far enough in it.

I had a great and detailed post written up while I was testing on the chromebook about PDF readers.  In retrospect, I should have been writing on the same device I was testing on as I caused the browser to crash and lost the post.

Instead of rewriting it all out, I'll give you the summary.  Default viewer of large PDFs only works on locally stored files, but other viewers (Xodo, Notable) will let you open them directly from GDocs as well as local.  Default viewer is fast but has no features.  The two I tried have different viewing options with Xodo being the better of the two while Notable has a cleaner design.  Both of those let you annotate, Xodo has more options here again, while Notable has a better tracking system for changed versions.  Both let you share annotated documents through their own site.  Notable has a paid option for offline use, digital signing and some other features. 

Memory usage for the three initially seemed large, with Xodo reporting ~625mb at one point and the others using about 4-500 while viewing a ~90mb file.  *I will need to retest as I got some odd results leading up to the browser crash.  Overall performance was not hampered overly much but loading more than one large doc could make the smaller memory devices strain.

I'm having trouble remembering which game it was, but I remember taking a gamefly rental and dumping it in the mailbox the day I got it. 

I do remember hating Fable 3 and returning it pretty quickly too.  If I wanted to play a game where there was more control given to how you wanted to make friends than fight, I would have played the Sims.

XB1 should also be getting

Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor - Game of the Year Edition
Slice Zombies (Kinect game) - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4sjw_5qboGw

Think fruit Ninja with zombies. Ugh.

I saw the GotY edition of that listed for both consoles.  Worth posting GotY releases?

Msteelers, in regards to your Quicksilver thought
Spoiler for Hiden:
I don't think he was going for redemption, he simply reacted to the danger of a child about to be gunned down.  It  ties into his protective nature.  That scene got quite a reaction out of the audience. 

I've seen it in regular and in IMAX 3D.  The 3D wasn't too bad but I really didn't enjoy the earlier fight at the base with the fast jump edits. 

I really enjoyed Spader as Ultron.  Far more human than the previews led me to believe. 

Spoiler for Hiden:
I love the way they made the Vision and the entire scene with Thor's hammer.  I also loved his ending scene with with the last? Ultron remnant.  I will miss him if Thanos get's his way with the gauntlet. 

The humor was good, with only a few stumbles, but the action scenes were almost all better than those in the first, imo.

This week, we finally get the beautiful, if often delayed Project Cars on PC, one week ahead of its console release.  I hope the wait has been worth it, unlike Saturday's recent highly anticipated event in the boxing world.  We also get a download only prequel to last year's surprisingly well made and received Wolfenstein.  3DS gets a pretty big release and should solidify its position in the portable JRPG market.

I can't wait.  We got the ok to have a half day at work and go see it as a 'morale/team building moment'  of course, with so few people actually going, it's more like me and a few work buddies blowing off work at lunch.  It reminds me of when I watched Iron Man, only then, nobody noticed we were gone.

I first read that as "The Witcher 3 arrives one week early" and was excited.  I suppose the reviews will only solidify my purchase while making the last week that much harder to avoid spoilers.
