With annoying frame rates and low quality picture on next-gen consoles, what system/console are you buying it for?

Made a 2nd thread with poll.

far cry 3 won goty

ac black flag was one of the nominees last year

how are ubisofts games hyped when they exceed expectations?

Where did FC3 win GOTY?

ACIV was apparently great (I haven't played it myself) but it's not hard to "exceed expectations" after a stinker like ACIII.

I was planning on getting the PS4 version, but after seeing how much worse it would look, I decided to upgrade my GPU from a 580 to a 780, which comes with a free copy of the game. I doubt I will get the 'preorder bonus', which is mildly upsetting.

PS4. I'm waiting for reviews though because I have a creeping suspicion this might flop.

Xbox one here, but yeah...This ^^^^^^

Seen a few gameplay videos now and the world just looks so robotic and dead. Hopefully some reviews can prove me wrong :)

#105 Posted by NathanDrakeSwag (5772 posts) -

PS4 if I do decide to get it. I'm waiting on reviews since it could go either way. I haven't been this undecided about a game in awhile.

PC in 1080p and i expect 50-60 fps ultra settings without TXAA.I will use some other type of AA or/with SweetFX.

As the honest guy that i am... i admit i fell for that hype, but not falling for this one :)

PS4, maybe PC.

Was pretty excited about this game at first, but as it's progressed I've become less and less excited. Right now it is impressing me as GTA with hacking. So with that and knowing Ubisoft's history of over hyping, and not delivering. I will probably wait and see how it all works out before buying it. If I do pick it up it will probably be for the PS4, or on sale on the PC down the road. It will probably be $29 on Steam in a month or two anyway.

If I do get it, it will probably be for PC.

so you fell for a game that had no gameplay variance while watch dogs does? solid perception.

So you decided to go with the even crappier version?

Pretty much. I'm not a fan of PC gaming, but i have a PC that's capable. So I always choose between the Xbox or PS4 version. Just personal preference.

Watch_Dogs: First Legit Review Gives it a 19 out of 20; Calls it “Almost Perfect,” Criticizes Story

that embargo until the 27th is bullshit though. It makes everyone uneasy

#119 Edited by CrownKingArthur (5262 posts) -

@lostrib: yes i'm not really a fan of embargoes, nor reviews in general (well, specifically scores). which is pretty odd considering i just linked a review.

must be easier to sell on marketing hype than merit.

Well at least reviews can give me a general idea of the game quality or if it's something I'll like. And with digital download/preorder, even if the embargo lifts the day before release, I can still get the preorder

...which is odd, because I hate preorders and preorder bonuses

Was gonna get it on Wii-U for dat sweet off-tv play, but now I'll get it on PC when it goes on sale since Ubi delayed the Wii-U version until who knows when.

#122 Posted by CrownKingArthur (5262 posts) -

@lostrib: yeah man. i'm finding it quite weird how watch_dogs it getting me to compromise all my pre-order / GameReview principles!

Will purchase this game on PC when it goes on sale for less than $5 unless the game receives rave reviews. We shall see.
