>there will never be a open world style game set in the Escape From New York universe.
Metal Gear doesn't count you fags
>hey buddy, want to ram this pinapple up my anus?
Yeah I guess. He's looking forward to doing MP in uncharted 4 with me as well and I can at least handle fucking Uncharted 4.
The Division looks like a worse Destiny, if you can imagine that.
The Division looks extremely bland. The cover shooting is too old and tired at this point, and the elephant in the room is that there seems to be no enemy diversity at all. Enjoy killing the same dudes over and over so you can loot this gun that does 3 more damage and has 5 extra bullets.
The whole thing just sounds like a mediocre cover shooter on top of a mediocre loot system, on top of a mediocre excuse for an open world.
I had so much hope when I first saw the trailers for this game. I let the hype take over and now that it has left there is only disappointment and emptiness.
Gameplay looks a lot like alpha protocol.
I was one of the few fags that liked it. I hope it's not too reliant on mp though, or I'll be in the game all alone.
Well, fuck. The possibility of exploring the almost empty husk of NYC was what kept me interested. Now it's only fucking Manhattan? When the trailers included Brooklyn streets? What the fuck devs?
If this is their Season Pass tactic, then they can fuck right off. And what's more disgusting is that there are people who are fine with this.
>Open-World game set in New York
>No Central Park
>No Lincoln Square
>Nothing south of like 10th St from the looks of it
>No possibilities for the more diverse locales in the city like Chinatown, Harlem, or Little Italy
>Most likely no subway network to go through either
How the fuck do you manage making a game based on one of the most well-known and diverse cities in the world and the only famous location you have is Time Square and maybe Chelsea?
New Yorker here.
Manhattan's pretty spacious but they're not even including Central Park? Or Downtown areas like Chinatown or Little Italy?
What a fucking waste. They would have been off going with a fake version of New York City like GTA IV.
>Remember when Ubisoft didnt lie through their teeth
I want to say I do, but I honestly can't.
I heard there won't even be an open beta? What kind of MMO launch is this gonna be? Does Ubisoft really expect me to give them the benefit of the doubt? After years of pumping out mediocre shit?
fuck manhattan. Boring ass lame ass tourist destination with no functionality other than business. Get fucked by horrendous traffic and unreasonable sales tax.
Any New Yorker knows that Queens is lowkey the best borough
>Like every other fucking ubishit game
You mean like every modern AAA game
TW3 is designed like this
MGSV is designed like this
JC3, madmax are designed like this
Batman is designed like this
The singleplayer MMO icon grind in an open map needs to fucking go, worst fad of the industry in a long time
>surprised a video game won't be 1:1 of New York
New York is a big place
The only surprising bit is Brooklyn because they showed it off a little here and there, meaning its going to be DLC.
I played the alpha. The map in the alpha showed the entire of New York and though you couldn't access most of the game, the map made it look like all of it would be playable at release.
I'm willing to bet right now, content has been removed to be resold as DLC.
Nah, maybe up to Central Park but Division will never be the entirety of New York.
Mid-Town is the most well known section of New York, they just need Central Park aswell. Brooklyn and Queens is the only other parts of New York they should add.
I would chalk it up to DLC. Brooklyn was shown off briefly last month, just a single street, but its being worked on. Got to sell a season pass somehow and from the get go before launch saying your season pass will be another section of NY will give people a bad impression
>Central Park is right there on the world map just beyond the gamezone border
It should be a huge fucking Dark Zone in the first major patch
TW3 isn't designed with '100%'ing in mind. in fact you can completely ignore question marks because they only reward boring loot and hardly any xp. Plus there is no 'tower' you have to climb to unlock the points, they are there already.
I'm replaying the game on NG+ and the only points i do are the ones i run across.
maybe play the game you fucking idiot
I barely give a shit about Ubisoft nowadays. The only reason why I even lurk these threads is because I enjoy watching them fuck up yet another game.
I'm still pissed about what they did with Anno 2205. It hurts even after getting a refund
>year of our Lord 20 fucking 16
>people still suprised at Ubisoft being dumb shitheads
To be surprised by the downgrade means that at least one of you believed in Ubisoft's words about this game.
"Ubisoft" is actually a large collection of different game developers who all work fairly independently
There is like, one or two studios who actually make the good games, and the rest who shovel out shit.
Black Flag is overrated as hell.
On foot missions were awful, and ship combat was repetitive, once you board 3 ships you've seen it all. All those side activities such as whaling and bell diving weren't that good. Shanties were the best part of the game.
Yes, it was better than 3, but that's hardly an accomplishment.
>Somewhere, someone on earth actually spent $99.99 on this
Bronxfag here, it IS really shitty but it's far from Detroit-tier. Gentrification is also starting to happen, I can see my 'hood becoming hipster city once all of the old people living off Section 8 pass away
I know i'm goimg to get called a faggot here but i don't care.
I love Ubisoft games.
Ass creed is my guilty pleasure.
Played 1, 2, Brotherhood, Revelations, 3, Liberation and i'm in black flag now.
IV is amazing, the free running was vastly improved, the graphics on PS4 are beautiful, the gameplay is tight and fun and the story so far is very good.
I love collecting shit, sailing and exploring tiny and medium sized islands and doing all activities is extremely fun for me.
Another good franchise is Far Cry, played Blood Dragon and Far Cry 4 and both of them were fun and had loads of weapons.
I'm not sure about Primal though, the melee combat in this franchise has always been Skyrim tier (garbage) and the weapon variety will be shit... spear/club/arrow = bleh.
The division looks fun but i hate multiplayer, will wait for reviews.
Another tiny thing which i love about ubi is how well they treat physical buyers, in this day and age of physical games with just a disc on the box, ubi still includes manuals and other goodies.
>Division Will Not Include Brooklyn, Queens, Bronx and Staten Island
>but you can buy THIS SEASON PASS WHICH INCLUDES ALL OF THEM FOR JUST $49.99!
I live in Jamaica and slowly but surely it's going to be a lot of whites living here in a few years. The irony? These are the same sjw faggots that cry out for "social justice" that are taking homes from minorities. Can't wait for some these niggas to get shot, fuck them.
>I love Ubisoft games.
>only played AC and Far Cry games
Because the people who made them back then weren't a bunch of slack jawed faggots.
80's were the peak of action movies that pandered to male audience.
After them the audience was saturated so the producers who wanted more money had to find a way to get other audiences.
If you'd ask what was the thing women disliked in action movies from that era it'll be "the grit".
So the grit had to go away. And action movies went to shit.
inb4 r9k go - I don't think I've posted once on r9k - it's not women's fault. It's just, you know, a try to maximise the profits which leads to alienating some of the audience or at least visibly degraded products(for the core audience). Which is something /v/ knows pretty well from its own medium.
>Nobody gets involded
>OMG HUMAN RIGHTS VIAOLATIONS AND NOBODY DOES ANYTHING! FUCK THIS WORLD
>First world gets involded
>OMG WOULD YOU LET THESE POOR PEOPLE STONE WOMAN AND KILL HOMOSEXUALS IN PEACE? YOU ARE JUST MAKING IT WORSE!
You are just another regressive lefty white guilter.
The middle least has ALWAYS been a shithole.
No muslim society will ever a good place to live, the muslim religion is poison.
>watching trailer at E3
>this looks pretty good
>it's Ubisoft though, so it's probably fucking lies, lies and more lies
>still, I'll try and keep and open mind though
>I've been waiting for an Escape from New York vidya for a long, LONG time
>If this is all I'm going to get, then fine. I'll deal with that.
>it's only Manhattan
>online is fucking dodgy as fuck
>destiny style bullshit
For fuck sake.
Nah fuck that, them cucks are just going to claim that that's just the black culture and that its not their fault they act this way in their little condescending tones, these niggas deserve to get shot up fuck em.
nice response anon
I'm sure he just accidently forgot about the Prince of Persia trilogy, Beyond Good and Evil, Rayman games, Splincer Cell games, etc...
>The Division looks like a worse Destiny, if you can imagine that.
That's what Ubisoft is copying, since they obviously gave up on the original concept, and whatever Ubisoft copies is worse than the original.
>"Ubisoft" is actually a large collection of different game developers who all work fairly independently
This. It's made by a group of devs who never ever have made a bad game before, Massive Entertainment.
In fact, they made the best RTS game ever released, World in Conflict.
>tom clancy literally rotting in a shallow grave as I type this
>ubisoft still slapping his name onto fucking everything for sales bonus
Well they probably will if they're as bad as you make them sound. All it takes is one stupid look, one dumb ass remark or them not minding their business to set a couple nigga's off.
>open world game
>you don't get the whole world
>actually has crafting
>actually has cosmetic gear to personalize yourself while Destiny just has transmog
>no loading screens, on of the biggest faults of Destiny
>basically impossible to have a worse story mode because Ubi games still have 8-10 how mediocre story modes vs a 6-8 hour mediocre story mode from Destiny if that.
Jackfrags said on his gameplay video that it supported 24 people on the dark zone on Xbone, can't comment on the PC or PS4 version, but i imagine the PC version will have more slots
I think this will be the last to have the Tom Clancy title. Splinter Cell Blacklist came out in August of 2013, two months before he died. RS Siege was being developed while he was still alive but they probably kept the title for "nostalgic" reasons since it's a reboot.
Its still just 24 in each zone on PC. Seems fine still, it would be a massive clusterfuck of abilities and shit otherwise.
I have a problem with seeing names pop up when you aim at people, no way to stealth in DZ
Lots of planes, they "crashed" there, built up a religious extremist minority to fight a proxy war, and then left them in the ruins without any help when they dumped their load on the Soviets
Decades later one of those dudes assisted in the flying of planes into buildings as a kind thank you to the CIA.
Well you see, it turns out that you are the long-prophesied chosen one the New York Precursor Race spoke of who would lead Manhattan to peace and tranquility, or else the universe will be destroyed.
It already seems like a boring clusterfuck as is
I mean i bet half of the mechanics involved with the Dark Zones will be ignored by the playerbase in favor of "lel kill people" monkeys.
Three factions are
>Rioters, aka just people pissed off and stealing
>Rikers, escaped prisoners
>Cleaners, vigilantes doing their own way of cleaning up the city with flamethrowers and shit
Apparently there are more, guaranteed there will be a military enemy faction of AWOL soldiers.
Unless it has "world bosses", the entire purpose is to get loot. Except its not instanced loot like in the PVE area, its world loot. Meaning a limited amount that people will want and fight over.
I don't see counterplay from sitting onto of a building either. The only two ways up are ladders and rope things
i like that you have games you enjoy
i whole heartedly enjoyed the VS mode they put into brotherhood and revelations
nothing gets me like a good multiplayer
nothing gets me even more than a good STEALTH based VS multiplayer
i remember playing AC 1 how much fun it was to jump off buildings and stab my target even though it didnt quite always work
i loved how they improved their work and the main story line throughout brotherhood and revelations
and then it just kept going
it wasnt improved upon it wasnt made better
they didnt strive to do better than the last game they just made another on the same old engine with the same old characters with the same old kind of people
lots of mechanics were actually discontinued
i liked Assassins Creed i used to
but what its become now is just
theres no words for it really not what hasnt already been said before anyways
While I love the idea of roaming around an empty Manhattan, even better with a survival style game set there I'm just worried Ubisoft is going to fuck it up, make it not ambitious enough, make the Manhattan map too small and with very little interiors, will they replicate the entire subway line and the major stops underground or will they cheapen out and not let you go into the subway tunnels.
I want to explore the places and do the things that I can't so in real life in this game, heres hoping they allow for that instead of just having the city and all the buildings and infrastructure as a backdrop and most of the fighting and interaction takes place on the street or in limited access subway tunnels and stations that you cant use as a means of underground travel, imagine running through those to get to another station and bypass a large group of players that way, or encountering others who are doing the same and getting into firefights in the subway tunnels.
This is either going to be fucking great or a disappointing as fuck game
There seem to be a decent amount of underground stuff but there is not way they do the entire subway system. There are also a bunch of buildings to go into, and rooftops.
VMC bros about to play this in 3 days instead of 12 days
Communists got to power, banned&burned opium farms. Opium farmers started forming militias and trying guerilla warfare but Red Army intervened and more or less pacified them so used their contacts in Saudi Arabia and the US to get financial support and manpower, Chinese helped them as well because they wanted to screw USSR. At some point both SA and the US realised that religious militias are more effective at fighting Soviet intervention and government troops so they've focused on providing them with high-end military equipment(no heavy stuff, thanks god).
When Talibans came from Pakistan, still-present religious militias joined them. Together they've got to power, banned&burned opium farms, enforced sharia law, started tearing old monuments, often remembering the times ancient Greek Bactrian kingdom, opium farmers asked for help again. For whatever reason several Saudi Arabians, Moroccans and Egyptians attacked World Trade Centre and Pentagon.
United States of America started their own intervention in the country, except now they've didn't had anybody(unless you believe in conspiracies, then Saudi Arabia still helped) funding their enemies. Still failed as Talibans control huge territory here.
In the meantime of supporting Afghan opium farmers United States of America keep spending several hundreds of millions on war on drugs.
Basically proxy war gone wrong.
Its not ambitious enough then, GTAIVs version of Manhattan left much to be desired as well, they compressed it down so much, at least they had a subway system underground with tunnels, that was pretty impressive.
>advertising griefing and backstabbing as a central feature of your game's multiplayer
I'm sure the community for this one is going to be absolutely lovely.
Only the dark zone, never changed. There was no way the community was ever going to be positive
>let me just help you kill all these guys and you can take the loot no problem
The nature of the loot in the dz is what makes it interesting, rather than everyone having their own unique drops allowing people to not give a shit
Yes, but in every zone it's possible, everyone will be doing it because that's the way they chose to present the game. Every multiplayer game will have dickbags, but Ubisoft deliberately chose that as the focus of their marketing push. "Now YOU can be a dickbag, and make other people RAGEFACE! It's cool and epic!" And a lot of people are going to play that way not because the want to, but because they think that's the way you're supposed to.
But what the fuck do I care? I wasn't getting this anyway.
Queensfag reporting in, sucks that I won't be able to gun down players while protecting my apartment.
Hopefully this game doesn't end up like destiny 2.0, the damage-spongy players are putting me off the game, having to hit someone 60 times with Uzi rounds for them to go down just isn't fun.
So I haven't been following this game at all, so I have no expectations about it and I just looked up a fairly recent preview on jewtube and it looks pretty cool. Seems like there are a lot of weapons which can also be independently customized and lots of skills.
Will probably end up not getting it (I always end up not playing every MP game I buy) but it looks good. Do you really think the game is going to be bad because graphics don't look as good and the map is smaller? That doesn't have a huge impact on gameplay as far as I know
The only reason its on a consideration for me is co-op. I just want to play the beta now to get a feel for how many hits enemies take for myself. Wondering if DPS is the same across weapon types, because for instance even if a Sniper Rifle and Assault Rifle in Destiny had the same Attack value the Sniper would do considerably more damage per shot. I am wondering if a 3000 DPS pistol has the same per shot damage as a 3000 DPS DMR
