Official trailer for Far Cry 5 is here folks, and *I* am *stoked* to the brim. I love the series, I love the idea of taking on religious militias in the United States, and I love being chased by bears. A…a perfect union.
I am *so* fucking ready for the next Far Cry, friends. And we are going to be getting one in the next (fiscal) year.
Ubisoft is already churning out what looks like a dank turd in the form of the Assassin’s Creed movie. Now that they’ve got that medium locked down, it makes sense that the bloated behemoth is setting its eyes on television.
Beyond Good and Evil 2 is about to inherit the mantle of the White Whale. Why? Since The Last Guardian is actually dropping this year. The good news? Ubisoft has confirmed the title is actually in development.
I’m all about this game. I don’t care if you are. I am. I am!!!
I’m excited for this game. I may be the only one. But I am.
I’m the one person who genuinely enjoyed Watch Dogs. Oh, don’t get me wrong. It was flawed as fuck. The hacking didn’t really work or matter. The protagonist was one of the worst ones I’ve had the misery of controlling in a long while. But I’m a fucking sucker for anything cyberpunky. which gave it a +50 enjoyment buff. Plus, the shooting mechanics were some of the sharpest I’ve ever experienced, which yes is ironic, because the game usually wanted you to fumble your way through hacking the encounters. This is why I’m excited for the sequel. Ubisoft has more or less confirmed they knew the protagonist sucked, and their gameplay wasn’t well-integrated. So, if it’s theoretically only going to get better, then I’m going to enjoy the sequel even more.
Whatever the consternation regarding the quality of The Division, it didn’t stop the title from becoming Ubisoft’s highest selling launch day game. Ever. This is particularly impressive, given that Ubisoft has crushed it with their Watch Dogs, and Assassin’s Creed launch days.
Corporate warfare! Intrigue! Espionage…? I don’t know. I’m trying to make a tenuous connection between the games Ubisoft produces and its potential hostile takeover by Vivendi. But truthfully, I’m rushing, and lazy as usual.
For the first time in a hot fucking minute, we’re not getting an Assassin’s Creed this year. Ubisoft has laid out its plans for fiscal year 2016-17, and there were no assassins to be found. There was, however, a sighting of a Watch Dog (2).
