Yeah, it works really well. I wound up using it today to do a bunch of side activities in Assassins Creed 4 while watching football. It gets a little spotty if I take it upstairs, but on the main floor of my house it's pretty fantastic.

@boocreepyfootdoctor: I watched the HD version of the Quick Look as I was playing the same section in the game and while it's not worlds apart, it's definitely better. The biggest thing is that the foliage from the next gen version is completely different, far more dense and reacts to the character. Also, weather effects are insane - the game might have the best storms I've ever encountered in a game.
That said, Killzone Shadowfall looks way more "next gen" but I'm having a lot more fun with AC4.
So, it looks like the trailer hints that Libertatia will be the focus of the story -
Libertatia (also known as Libertalia) was a possibly fictional anarchist colony founded in the late 17th century in Madagascar by pirates under the leadership of Captain James Misson. Whether or not Libertatia actually existed is disputed. It is described in the book A General History of the Pyrates by Captain Charles Johnson, an otherwise unknown individual who may have been a pseudonym of Daniel Defoe. Much of the book is a mixture of fact and fiction, and it is possible the account of Libertatia is entirely fabricated.
Their motto was "For God and Liberty" as seen in the trailer and the trailer highlights the island off of Madagascar where it was located.
In terms of what I've played/what I'm excited to play, probably no. My favorite games of the year so far are:
- Year Walk
- Bioshock Infinite
- Gone Home
- Hotline Miami (Vita) - I'm counting this as a 2013 release.
- Kentucky Route Zero
- Tomb Raider
I've had others I've enjoyed - and I've spent a lot of 2013 wrapping up this generation of games by playing things I missed. I assume fall will bring a few more, but I'll be shocked if Brothers gets knocked off that list.
@sockemjetpack: Interesting. I did find a note dated 1923 with what looked like an invoice of liquor and something about "the Governor being pleased," so I assumed Oscar was a bootlegger during prohibition?
@kevin_cogneto: See, I read that as subverting expectations. The game has all of the trappings of a horror game - the creepy mansion, the stormy night, the flickering lights. It's playing with what we think a video game will be about, in order to draw you into an incredibly un-gamey story.
I thinks that Sam's bathroom, for instance, is a perfect example of this. The tub first appears to be caked in blood, but on further examination, it's hair dye and part of one of the happiest parts of her narrative.
