    A characters gender plays a massive part in who they are as a person- especially in a time period piece like Assassins Creed where gender roles were vastly different to how they are today. Oh and nice LBGT sensitivity bro.
    You don't get how Narrative works. The above statement is only true of games like Skyrim or WoW where the player character is just an avatar for the player and has no personality outside that.

    This is either one of the greatest purchases I've ever made, or the worst.

    End of an Age, Beginning of...
     
     
    Here at the end I share my final thoughts. I've travel across the wrinkle old land of the long ruined Russia. Traveled far to reach the tower, and see the Traveler. I took up arms to fight back and protect whats left. I've knocked on the door of hell, fought against Septik Prime in his Devilish liar. I've tested my strength against fellow Guardians on many fields. I tested the strength of The Iron Banner, and was graced by Lord Saladin's presence. I've even landed and walked on the surface of our closest and most scarred and hollow neighbor, the Moon, now claimed by The Hive. I give you all the last site of my journey... No of all our journeys. But do not worry to take a knee fellow Guardians, we'll be called back to action soon. When we do, we will not just return, we will hold the flag together and take back the galaxy...

    Those are the ones. Right through that hole next to the console you have to access in the first non-tutorial story mission.
    But the minute you get close, sneaking or not, they turn right towards you and one-shot you.
    I wonder if the Hunter's invisibility skill would work, but that would take an assload of farming to get.
     
     
    @HeroEightyTwo: Warlock should be the official Angry Army class.
    I mean, it has a passive called Angry Magic. How could it not be?

    Started a new character today just to try a different class, and I encountered couple enemy types I hadn't seen before.
    I'm now curious what's in that room guarded by Ascended Knights and Ascended Acolytes.
  9. Verethragna liked a post in a topic by fridgeracer in why i think physical media will always exist   
    1. digital = DRM. i.e. you never truly own it. let's say you cheat on 1 game on your steam account and were to get permanently banned. that's it... all your games on there are also inaccessible.
     
    2. people don't like or want DRM. whether we buy something digitally or physically, we want to know we own that product under our consumer rights.
     
    3. not all consumers will ever be reached without physical copies. some people are poorer than others and can never afford full retail price of a new game or movie. so they buy them pre owned. this is the same in almost every single market in the entire world. someone buys something new... sells it to someone as used for a cheaper price. the person buying is happy they could afford it and the person selling is happy they got rid of it and made some money back.
     
    4. currently, companies like sony and microsoft, google play, amazon, and so on are abusing digital sales with high prices. a digital only DRM product should be ALOT cheaper due to those negatives to the consumer, but often prices are the exact same, if not more than the physical copies. steam helps with constant sales and discounts, but in the style of "quick save money and buy it before it's too late". they don't put up a standard price without any sales that's generally cheaper, i.e. if it's not on sale chances are it's the same price as all the other digital platforms.
     
    5. gog.com is so big now that they are launching their own dedicated PC / mac (i think so, not sure about mac. lets say computers) client for their games purchase platform, much like steam, except the current trend continues... non DRM games. there's even growing numbers of PC gamers who say they only buy from gog.com because there is no DRM. the plus side of all this is that yes, you can burn the contents onto a disc and have your very own non DRM physical copy of a game. so long as windows is still compatible with it... many decades down the line you could still be able to play this game all thanks to no DRM and physical media.
     
    6. retail - not everyone despite the propaganda / horseshit fed to us by news articles and statistics... likes to shop online. plenty of people still to this day want things in the way they bought things 100 or even 200 years ago - you pay some money, you get something in your hands in return. movies, music, and games because of these people are still being sold in stores as physical copies. yes, there's a big market online / digitally, but there's also a big market out on the town. it's not going away any time soon.
     
    7. i believe piracy in 1st world developed and rich countries such as US, UK, Japan and so on is on the fall. why is that? well in the UK i am on virgin media and kickass torrents proxy sites have been all blocked. no amount of proxies can be accessed, everything is flagged and blocked. many others have also been blocked. some still do work for other torrent networks, but their time is coming. that leaves you with a choice.... pay for a VPN for £8-10 a month, or buy the movie. either way you are going to spend money, and i would rather buy the movie / game / album than spend money to get it illegally. i have not pirated in over 6 years to general price drops of things on steam and on amazon, but the ones that still don't adopt the right way of life, are soon going to, by force.
     
    if anything's going to kill physical copies of media entertainment, it's going to be a shortage of energy / fuel supplies to generate plastic and a world wide depression where factories go bust and logistics cease to a halt and gamers, movie lovers, and music buyers left are rich people and thus the companies making new stuff will resort to doing things online only and the government makes a law to ban the production of plastic. if neither of these 2 things ever happens, i bet 100-200 years from now, if the human race is still alive and this thread is still floating about on the internet that someone in that time would have read this and gone... christ, he was right. i CAN buy die hard 100.1x on a 10K res blu ray disc in a store right now!

    For my long hard work I was paid,
    So I went to the shopping arcade.
    And since neither my thumbs are yet lame,
    I thought to pick up a new game.
    Imagine my shock when I found
    There were not any games around
    Instead the shelves were filled (all the spaces)
    With promotional DVD cases
    "O sir why do you want me to pay,
    for a game that is not out today?"
    "But sir!" Called the man with a shout
    "You do not know what you're about!
    "Tis true that these games aren't out yet
    But it's better for you from the outset!
    For a preorder bonus mayhaps,
    You enjoy a few extra maps?
    Or if you're wardrobe is thin,
    How about a player character skin?"
    "Can I simply not purchase today
    Then take my goods home to play?"
    "But sire how will you feel a week later
    when you have no access to the beta?
    If you preorder Sniper Elite three
    You can shoot Hitler for Free!"
    I paused at this last for spell
    as that did sound fun as all hell,
    But instead I cried "No!
    Give me Transfomers to Go!"
    And I got it home and it was shit.
  16. Verethragna liked a post in a topic by Null in 60 FPS AND WHERE I STAND ON IT.   
    The human is a very adaptable creature.  Our adaptability is one of the important aspects that make us human.  If you play a game at 30fps and then at 60fps there will be a noticeable difference.  When transitioning from a 60fps experience to a 30fps experience the human body will adapt it just takes time.  Much like sitting in a pitch dark room.  The idea that 30fps is "unplayable" is just snobbish.  Much like stating, "I can't eat a regular burger after having the best steak in town."  Ya know what?  That's fair.  There is nothing wrong with having high standards.  I honestly don't care whether a game is at 60fps or 30fps, but what I do care about is whether the frame rate is in consistent flux.
  17. Verethragna liked a post in a topic by BlackFelyne in 60 FPS AND WHERE I STAND ON IT.   
    My standards must be weird, because regardless if a game is in 60 fps or 30 fps, a shit game is a shit game.

    As long as the 30fps is stable (Locked, no fluctuations, NO BLIGHTTOWN)) I'm A-ok with the game, because eventually the FPS will disappear from my mind and I'll be focusing more on what is going on in the game.

    So apparently you cracked the code. You need to look at a bad game like a parody of a good game. That way it makes everything funny!

    There are a couple of people that have unfortunately played this game and posted them on youtube, like this one.


    Unfortunately I can't record it because my internet can't handle the upload size, but I will recount my experience playing this game with this thread.

    An individual person's personal life is not yours or anyone's place to pick apart. These are the types of topics I should never see on this forum. I'm sure for those of you who have posted in this thread, you too would not like your lives to be picked apart, so don't do it to anyone else.

    I feel woefully ill equipped to answer this question.
    I mean, any game gets repetitive after a while.
  25. Shae liked a post in a topic by Verethragna in Call To AJSA To Insta-Ban Threads About PC vs Consoles.   
    While I do agree that this could be interpreted as a form of censorship, I believe the only people who would start flame threads in response to a rule of this sort would be the same people who would start flame wars in such threads in the first place.
     
    In my experience with the AJSA forums, such topics only serve to drive a wedge in what should be a united community.
    Asking for information on the various platforms available and weighing their strengths and weaknesses is one thing, but two groups with their preconceived notions, each trying to force their opinions on others without a desire to better others or themselves in the process is quite another.
    We should be tearing and clawing at rival communities out on the metaphorical battlefield, not bickering amongst ourselves.
     
    But perhaps banning all such conversation would be too extreme a response. An overreaction, if you will.
    Perhaps it would be a better idea to make a rule that the minute a post pops up referring to either a "master race" or "peasants" the thread should be insta-locked.
