Best I got on those currently.  New cards are new cards.

 

Agreed on the games I'm waiting for patches before I grab Unity.

 

You should have seen FC4 on our max machine here (named JackHammer) they use for GameCrate.

 

It was beautiful.

That rule goes especially for Unity. In general - that's my rule for most games: wait for price-drops + some patches behind it. It just ain't worth buying ASAP anymore, these day and age.

 

With the way things are today - with pushing the game out the door often way too early and turning early buyers into Paying Alpha/Beta Testers; inevitable Season Passes; DLC's galore to the point I can't even keep up w/ it (see games like SR3 + SR4, and BL2 w/ ridiculous + copious amounts of DLC's); games getting re-released editions later w/ way more content packages; re-released HD version coming within a few years; and other annoying business practices - there's almost no real reasons anymore to buy games ASAP.

 

I still need to work some more on Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag, which I just recently purchased. I can wait on ACU - especially since my GF 560 Ti does not meet the very-beefy minimum requirement (GF 680); I need a new vid card to even think of running ACU (and the GF 970 is still quite pricey, IMHO); and likely I'll probably have a case of "AC Burn-Out" again after Black Flag.

 

Really, though - UbiSoft needs to slow down w/ these AC games - since they often ain't changing + evolving the AC formula super-duper much, anyways.

I'm about 25% on Black Flag right now.  Gotta collect EVERYTHING!

 

It really is the best AC game IMO outside of the ending to AC2 (so meta).

 

Might be the first game I 100%.

 

I did just re-purchase the Ezio Trilogy for ps3 during a bf sale so I'm going to work on those again shortly.

 

WoW raiding taking up wayyyyy too much time lately.

"Collect everything" is certainly normally NOT a mentality for me. It's normally "Play til the main quest ends or I get bored with the game."

 

And then, it's onto the next game.

I liked the set-up for the AC2 ending and where it was heading...

Spoiler

 

I liked AC2 + ACB the best, out of the AC games that I've played so far (finished AC1, 2, ACB, ACR, AC3; working on AC4).

 

Granted, I ain't finished AC4 - so, I'll hold judgment on that, until I actually finish it. I'm only around 5 hours into AC4.

I'm not normally a collect everything guy but for some reason the promise of a dead skeleton crew for 100% of the game sounds amazing.
