So Ubisoft showed some stuff. What did you guys think?
Generally I thought it was pretty weak overall. Ubisoft used to be one of my favorite developers responsible for some of my favorite games in the past. Assassins Creed, Splinter Cell, Watch Dogs, Prince of Persia, heck even Grow Home. Over time they seem to be sanding off all the edges from their games that made them distinct into this one conglomerate Ubisoft mass. Used to love AC specifically because of it's unique control scheme and the interesting sci-fi/historical interweaving stories. Now AC is a very boilerplate open world game with hack and slash combat, tiered loot and a lot of other modernizations that stripped that series of it's core identity. Splinter Cell is pretty much dead so no real hope there. As for Watch Dogs I was always in the minority that thought the first game was pretty good and I enjoyed the darker tone, only to find the extreme course correction in WD2 to be not only incredibly jarring but also very lame. Seems like Legion is trying to find a healthy balance and overall is the only thing from their current lineup that I find interesting or envision myself actually wanting to play.
EDIT: I just read that in AC Valhalla you can recruit cats for your ship. I might give this a shot.
