Hollywood: Assassin's Creed movie deal "ridiculous"

Entity

7 years ago

@OliverH

Yeah, the whole method they've gone about slamming Ubi though reeks of bitterness.

"One unnamed studio chief, who dropped out of the bidding". He's the chief of a studio that failed to reach an agreement, yet won't even be named?

I don't know what the whole 'ins-and-outs' are, but maybe they could try to get Ubi to agree to collateral. Make them put some money up to cover any sudden drop-out. We don't even know if it would have been in the contract that they would be in breach for a set amount.

Just sounds like they're trying to make sure Ubi don't get a deal. "YOU'LL NEVER WORK IN HOLLYWOOD AGAIN!"

Seriously, considering the guy is the chief of a studio he should at least be named. I'd still rather the artist is left in total control.

"No studio, no director, nobody has ever demanded the amount of control that Ubisoft has, movie site Vulture reported."

Maybe that's been the problem. Films made about a videogame, made by people who don't fully understand the source, and how companies really see their products.

At least if it was a failure then it would be Ubi's failure. Rather than some hack director.

Don't really care.

I'm going to be getting this on PC, and after playing Oblivion on both 360 and PC, the mod scene walks it.

I'd much rather have mod quests/textures/add-ons made by people without having to pay a penny.

Sony implicates Anonymous in PSN hack

New FFXIV producer admits launch failings

Entity

8 years ago

The way armour got damaged so quick, mixed with a horrible interface, and the lack of a AH from the start killed this game for me. I hope it can recover and that I can go back in a years time to a far better game (imo), but I'm not going to hold my breath.

I had so much hope for this game after XI, but they just went backwards. I know some of my complaints have been fixed, but it's going to take a lot to get people back after this disaster.

TESV Skyrim: why there's no multiplayer

Entity

8 years ago

If there was going to be any kind of multiplayer then it should be two-four max. The idea that you and a friend could both play, but on different areas of the map, does sound nice (imo). Better than the idea that Fable used anyway (same region only).

Either way, I couldn't care and it won't make any difference to the fact that I'll get this on day one.

I just want them to fix the Alerts/Duos/Raids/PVP.

It seriously feels like there is only one set of these going on at once (I know there are more).

I can wait forever in a day with no alerts. PVP can be horribly unbalanced: 1 to 2 Vs 4 at start?

That said, I've been enjoying my time and at least "acheivements" reward you with skill points, which is a massive plus and a reason to do them.

I really wanted to love this, but this is just ripping off consumers.

N.B: I don't count the "Free quests" since, well, they're supposed to not be included in the price I guess.

Edit: Understone was not included on the disk. It was added via the "Free Weapons" download pack and was being worked on only after the game had gone gold.

Why FFXIV failed to meet expectations

Entity

8 years ago

Getting fed-up with SE telling me what is wrong. Whenever they speak I just don't hear the real reasons why. They never listened to the beta testers and just point blank refused to ever comment, past some PR drivel AFTER release. I really wanted to love the game, but it's faults are too great at the moment.

I bought this on day one of standard release. Played for just under a month, and even the free month couldn't tempt me further. I'll wait till there's some drastic changes before returning.

Lionhead working on Fable III fix

Entity

8 years ago

"The Truth: A tiny handful of clear good/evil decisions at the end of the game with no consequences beyond a minor hit/boost to your bank balance."

Hard to cover this without any sort of spoilers, but here goes:
Just one issue on that. I've completed the game and while I did go for the hits on my bank balance to remain 'Good', it didn't give me the world I wanted to stroll around in afterwards. I should've been more ruthless, but at the same time it's given me moments which weren't scripted and reminds me of the more organic "Make your own story about what you see the NPC's doing" moments of Fable 1.

The framerate drop is unbearable at times, esp if you're trying to do jobs.

The game is in a shitty state atm. Even with the retainer markets changed, trying to find something suitable is a nightmare as most retainers don't do what they say on the tin (Tried to find a pickaxe, got a load of ore and crytals to choose from instead). Though I'll gobble up this free month happily, while torturing myself with the horrible lag, UI, npc load-ins etc...
