Assassin's Creed: Rogue told me more about it's story and premise in 2 minutes and got me more interested in it than months of seeing Unity.

I feel the same way about them. I'll be waiting for Rogue's inevitable trip to current gen to play it, though.

I don't quite think I care enough to wait potentially up to a year to pay full price again for a little bit of spit and polish on a game that's still fundamentally last gen, and by that point months, or even a year old.

I am still more interested in Unity, i like that they have gone back to focus on one big city where the climbing and parkour could be useful again. Also looking forward to the changes in stealth and combat. I still keep my eye on Rogue mainly because of the arctic setting and the hunter becomes the hunted concept.

The slight improvements to the formula sound nice, but there's no discernible context to the story or explanation of the character. Other than apparently he's not british, he just has a british accent and speaks only in english because apparently they decided it was obvious he was french.

Otherwise there's no clue of who he is, where he comes from, what his objective other than that he probably approves of the revolution .etc Basically nothing that makes me care about Unity beyond the fact they changed some of the minor niggles that they should of taken care of after brotherhood, like the adaptive objective system instead of hard fail states and tethering.

I am interested in Unity's graphics and Co-Op more.

However, I am far more interested in Rogue's storyline. I've always found villains far more interesting than heroes. If Ubisoft could switch AC:U's 8th gen exclusivity with Rogue's 7th gen exclusivity and vice versa, I'd be happy :)

I'm not very interested in Unity's co-op or graphics at all, just stuff like that they've got rid of the BS game overs for being more than 50 feet from a moving target .etc

The Axe Factor 180: A Guy Who Knows That We Know

What We’re Watching:…

AC: Unity - The good, the bad and the ugly

The good:

- Graphics. It looks stunning and the amount of NPC's roaming through the city give the game a nice ambiance and make the city come to life like no other game has ever done before.

- Interiors. Much more inside buildings now. Fast short cuts through a house or complete missions taking place in a palace. Not every house is accessible but there is plenty of them to make it divers. 

- Riddles. Less hand holding this game. Riddles and murder cases to tease the…

Hatred is not about violence & here's why

PSA: Nothing I am saying is meant to be inflammatory or antagonizing. I am simply informing you the reader on my personal take of the Hatred controversy now that it has been several weeks and we can really take a step back to examine what the issue is.


The Hatred controversy is not about Violence in video games... Hatred is not about Grand Theft Auto, Hatred is not about Halo, heck Hatred is not about Boondock Saints or even Sons of Anarchy. Hatred is about Columbine, there I…

Winter is coming and so is the Game of Thrones game!

PR Reps love giving us only the tip.

Soon after that we got a teaser image.…
