Interesting how Ubisoft and EA are going into the generation like a whimpering fart. Nothing interesting at all really, even though I'm excited for AC/WD/FC, I know those will all just be reskins of games I already played.

Neither companies with any interesting new IPs.


Probably because AC Valhalla will sell better then if they made the same game and called it Vikings with no AC tie in. Which honestly at this point I wish they would just drop the modern day stuff and make games set in various ancient times.

do you think there's a microtransaction forum where they talk about people that spend thousands on games & DLC they'll never touch. Maybe they're confused when they buy the same sports game every year but see other people buy 7 copies of RE4 and Skyrim.

To be fair, those 7 copies of RE4 I got equate to maybe $60 total now probably so that game at worst got near MSRP from me and it only took a decade.

Agreed, the modern day stuff is just a distraction from the fun I was having in ancient times. Love the games, would be fine with the modern stuff disappearing.

I guess it's a long shot, but I hope that they announce a new Rayman game or a new Rabbids game in their next Ubisoft Forward event.

Yeah I loved Rayman Origins/Legends so I'd be down for a new one. Legends was 2013 so we are due for another game in the series.

This Ubisoft sale just reminds me to stop buying games.

 

I am looking at:

 

AC Origins

AC Odyssey

Far Cry 5

Far Cry New Dawn

Far Cry Primal

The Division 2

Ghost Recon: Wildlands

Ghost Recon Breakpoint 

 

All physical disk except Wildlands. Only installed these and never played, even one minute. Paid about $150 in Game Stop credit and Bing bucks.

 

Now I could have them all digital for about $100. I guess it is not the worst except going through my purchases this is not the only example.

 

Stop buying games.

The reviews are still on my console. And, I have Alpha Skip Ahead, which is the newest that you can get.

 

I still see them, and wouldn't trust them at all 

Aha. I don't really shop via the console, was referring to the website. Must be harder to remove them from the console store without an update if that's what they are doing.

I guess I'm in at least for FC3 for 2.99. Might get either 4 or 5 but can't decide. In theory they should get better the higher they go but I get the impression that might not be the case with this series.

Going to pick up New Dawn and Breakpoint. Leaning towards Odyssey and Rogue but I want to beat Origins first.

I think Watch Dogs legions at least looks interesting haha but I was looking at True Achievements and the Alt-righ in there are already claiming it's Left Wing propaganda. If it's anything like Far Cry 5 it's barely going to touch anything political. I think it might be more interesting if they did. Like AWP said, Ubisoft Sales, I don't think I'm ever going to buy an Ubisoft game at launch. In fact Walking Dogs 3 was already $39.99 for PS4 preorder on Amazon and it was up a couple days so if it was a price error they sure weren't worried about it.

Even though I agree with them that I *hope* it doesn't, it's a video game after all. I remember avoiding WD2 because I heard it was "too political", then I bought it for $9 on XBL a year ago and basically loved every second of it. Didn't even notice really anything "political" at all. They also actually made SF look like a nice city instead of dump, which is quite an impressive feat of itself. WD3 is definitely Ubisoft's hitter out of the three, at least I hope. Definitely the game I'm most excited for the rest of the year, even more so than cyberpunk. Will be waiting like everyone else though.

I just don't know if I can dump 60+ hours in a third AC. We all know it's going to basically be a re-skin of Odyssey. As much as I liked the previous two, I hope they end the series after Valhalla and try something new.

Oh definitely. It's not a dumb move by them doing what they're doing, it's just boring. It's like if the movie industry only put out Marvel movies, some Michael Bay stuff, and then just add a random popular third genre or series. The money would still pour in, it's just boring though. Wish they would create some new stuff to ramp up the variety.

Some of the postings on here about FC Primal have peaked my interest. 

 

The only FC I ever put any time into was the first one back when it came out on OGXB and really enjoyed it. I have played a little of Blood Dragon and enjoy the 80s scifi cliche stuff but the game play just does not seem to pull me in at all. Maybe the mechanics are dated or something, I am not really big into FPSs anymore.

 

Is there a FC for the more casual player, good story and exploration that is a bit lighter on the combat aspects?

Are you referring to Assassin's Creed Origins Gold Edition?  If so, that's $19.99 and it's the second time it's been priced that low on sale.

I’ve been looking at a few things from the Ubisoft sale and thinking maybe I should just buy the base game and then IF I ever beat the base game, then grab the dlc. I’m tempted to buy some gold games but part of me is telling myself that I won’t even get through the vanilla base game so what’s the point of owning all the dlc.
