    I am saying that I think that Cassandra's dialogue seems fairly good at the very least, a credible version of that particular character type - someone going through a crisis of faith of sorts,...

    Oh, sure. Like I said, anyone can tell Assassin's Creed's NPCs are hilariously dumb, but at the same time I frequently find my jaw dropping - in a good way - at the feeling of life they give the...

    I think you're quite possibly too hard on the game - though I've only just got out of the Hinterlands, so who knows? - but I certainly don't think you're wrong to criticise or attack it. I don't...

    Unless you mean including BG2, then based on what I played of that only months ago, I will gently suggest you're kidding yourself. Every single contrivance people complain about in the newer games...

    I grant you do have a point there (I think it contributes to how videogame-y Inquisition feels, which I can understand could be a dealbreaker for some). Though oddly this hasn't mattered to me that...

    Didn't offend, but I think you've drunk a bit too much of the CDP koolaid. :P (Oh, Christ, it's DA2 versus TW2 all over again. NeoGAF flashbacks! Agh!) Seriously, I can already see how someone would...

    This is interesting, because I'm up to four hours pottering around the Hinterlands and so far it does feel very much like the DA2 Bioware presumably wanted to make. Not a problem for me, obviously -...

    New 20-minute narrated gameplay video - in Korean but available with subtitles here (subtitles might not play embedded? They're definitely there if you watch on YouTube) (EDIT: No, seems like they're...

    Perhaps, but I meant the regular female acrobatic enemies you fight in the first area, not what's-her-name (can't remember getting too much further). IIRC their barks are like that. My eyes almost...

    Eh, I don't know about that. I liked PoP 2008 quite a bit (despite it fumbling the ending) and I wish it had got a sequel, at least, but it was desperately limited and somewhat... hollow, IMO. It...

    And I would say I'm finding Unity far, far more enjoyable than Shadow of Mordor, which I'm having to force myself to play at this point. :) Seriously, though, to the OP, selling the code is certainly...

    Dunno if Britain is doomed just yet, but UKIP worry me far more than anything Labour or the Conservatives seem capable of. They're basically reactionaries riding a wave of misplaced populist...

    Oh, while I like it more than you I'm certainly not saying there's nothing to criticise (I could easily see someone arguing WW was a better "game"). Just that I really, really liked what TT did with...

    Nope :P Two Thrones was brilliant because it was one of the few times we've ever seen a publisher/developer all but openly saying "Oh, Christ, that last game was a mistake, wasn't it? What were we...

    I genuinely like Ubisoft, for all their flaws. They're one of my favourites of the Big Evil Megacorp publishers. The Ubigame formula is certainly ripe for criticism and they've certainly put out...

    I do take your point, but it's different for me, being a Ubisoft apologi- uh, enthusiast. ;) I honestly really like the "grind" of Unity, as it were - it's certainly flawed (too many icons, forcing...

    I would say they're all possible choices, then. Far Cry 4 definitely has its supporters round here - I haven't played it, though, as I hated Far Cry 3's story and didn't like the way its world came...

    Tried the first forty-five minutes or so (a little way into the prologue). My God, this is some awkward, clumsy exposition. Quite a pretty game - it's straining my rig on Ultra, though it's not...

    Hmm, the murder cases in Assassin's Creed: Unity really are something of a missed opportunity. They're pretty much all utter formalities, some laughably so (one room, one suspect) and they give...

    Ah, The Saboteur. Why, why, why did they make the terrible mistake of having the "bad" world state be a thousand times more eye-catching and aesthetically pleasing than the "good" one (which was...

    It was a quick grab for the first vaguely relevant example I could think of, though I would say you can definitely contrast Blow (creator's vision above everything, play it or don't) with Hocking...

    I'm not saying YA novels have an obligation to depict their protagonists act as upstanding moral exemplars. I am saying that a great many of them do push their leads like that - the Hunger Games...

    Eh, my parents spent close to 1,400 on this thing when they first got it for me as a present - a 4870, 1 TB HDD, 4 GB of RAM and a 965 BE at 3 GHz or so. That was a pretty good rig at the time...
