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

NBA2K15 Review

The NBA2K series has been one of the most dominant franchises in gaming. While some sports franchises rely on exclusivity deals to corner the market, NBA2K was able to do it the old fashioned way: make a far superior product to your competitor, and force them to close shop. This dominance allowed NBA2K to end the last console generation as the unchallenged king of basketball video games. 2K began the new console generation with another solid entry in the series. While NBA2K14 for the PS4 and…
