The question is: will Zorine be at the EB Games Expo?

I'm sort of in the market for an Asian nerd-girl substantially younger than myself and I think she may be it.

Zorine, if I could spruik my virtues for a moment, allow me to say I have my own home, my own hair, excellent spelling and punctuation plus the ability to keep an entire team of adventurers alive despite a blood/alcohol content that would kill an Oliver Reed.

See you at the EB Games Expo ;)

Wait, what? EB Games doesn't exist. GameStop bought them.

A good indication of what'll be at the EB Expo is the games that'll be at Gamescon this month.

I do hope the PS4s ain't in a separate section this year.

uh-oh, i've gone from mildly hoping the witcher3 will be a great game to expecting it to revolutionize, lol.

At this event, I really hope that Hardline gets cancelled and that DICE announces its closure, and that Visceral goes onto make a different game that's not a Battlefield game. 


I also hope that people wake up and see Assassin's Creed for what it really is...annualized minimap exploration and boring spam-the-attack-button-to-win gameplay.

@grenadehh There are EB Games stores in Australia and Canada, and maybe other countries, I forget and I don't feel like looking it up now.  I don't know if Gamestop owns them or not.  I guess what you are referring to is Gamestop buying EB in the US and then closing the locations or changing them over to Gamestop stores.

Okay, I don't believe there has ever been big announcements made at the EB Expo, and I don't believe there ever would be.  It's mainly re-hashing what was revealed at the previous events during the year.  Plus giving us Aussies a chance to get hands on with them.

@tearatherflesh lol, playing creed1 without the hud, map or counter spam turns it into a great game.  figuring out the way to win in combat is a problem in almost every game.  solution:  don't use it.


all i know, is that i wish creed2 would have built on one and made it a more hardcore assassin experience and not the lame "do everything and make it accessible" crap.


lol, you can't even legitimately play creed2 without the hud.  perfect stupidity.

I don't know what's wrong with AC (except the sychonization part, that's boring)

Just take a look between ACR, AC3 and AC4 three games in the three years feel nothing like the previous one.

Have you even played them or just mindlessly jumped on a hate bandwagon ?

And if the problem is annualisation, Batman AC and AO came out with a two year gap, tell me how diverse those games are

@tearatherflesh Annualized is fantastic, now we can play in new time period every year instead of waiting 4 years for another GTA. Also most open world game involve exploring the map and pressing buttons.

@tearatherflesh  I kinda agree with you on DICE. I don't want to see another BF game or clone. I think the company can do great things, and need to keep away from shooters for a while. Visceral, I'd love to see another Dead Space. AC is a great series, though the annualization does water it down quite a bit.

@tearatherflesh You are exactly what is wrong with gaming today. You, the framerate/resolution whores and the fanboys. God don't forget about the fanboys.

@tearatherflesh you had me until the second paragraph, so I'd give you half a like if I could.

@hystavito @grenadehh 

I believe EB Games is owned by Gamestop.

However, what's unclear is why they haven't rebranded the stores - maybe a Hungry Jack's situation?

@sirevanohio @tearatherflesh I don't mind if it's a new game each year (Though it takes longer than a year to make them, Ubisoft uses different studios between games so while they release once a year it actually takes 2-3 years to make one of the games, they just switch up the studios each release so it comes out each year). 

However that's the problem with most open world games, one of the reasons why I think rpg games have done it better, Fallout, Skyrim, etc, in these games exploring the open world felt GOOD because they didn't focus on you doing super-repetitive actions. 

Take AC for example, you explore the world and it's the same crap over and over. "Go find tower, climb tower, unlock map, go find the feathers/almanac pages, etc, do this same mission over and over and over. IT's just a bunch of "Generic" things repeated 50+ times that you do all over the map. 

In Fallout and Skyrim they don't focus on the "repetitive" things and instead just give you a world to explore, find quests, find secret things, loot, etc. To me that feel sfar more "natural" and not nearly as repetitive.

@shoguneht @tearatherflesh Umm I don't even see him mention  ANYTHING about the framerate/res or anything that makes him a "fanboy."

In fact the entire comment he made is quite anti-fanboy because he speaks truth about both games. 

Did you play the Hardline Beta? It felt very much like a BF4 "mod," the same overalll feel, the same generic map designs ( didn't even feel like a real city or fit the theme of what hardline is meant to be).


AC games get super repetitive, like most Ubisoft open world games they use the same basic framework in each one.

@Stiler @shoguneht @tearatherflesh Learn how to read, I didn't call him any of that.

Point is you people only point out trivial flaws in the most talked about AAA games for the attention without clear acknowledgement that their are games a lot worse. Games that force microtransactions and DLC announced before game releases.


Sure Hardline is a BF4 rehash but I'm not that much of a brat that I wish the closure for an entire company.
