The lack of Drew is really upsetting.
Really disappointing whenever we get these podcast shows instead of regular UPF.
Even though ISO 8601 is now the norm that says Monday is the first day, it's a fairly recent norm that most don't follow anyway.
Are you able to back that up with some actual data? From what I know more people start their calendar week on Monday than any other day. Really doubt they would made it an ISO standard if what you are saying is true.
@dray2k: I read the article and the update weeks ago. Regardless if they misrepresented the product intentionally or not does not really matter. Sloppy, bad journalism with no research is just as bad. Polygons misrepresentation has had an effect on consumers and other journalists as can be seen in these deliberations.
Not going to bother responding to any future replies of yours, I've made my point and don't feel like arguing someone who seems dead set on blindly defending and making up excuses for the bad practices of a billion dollar company.
Listening made me realize that I totally forgot about HackMUD. Pretty sure it shows up on Jeffs Top 10 somewhere in the upper ranks.
@expensiveham: Just picked that one up. Good that I've missed that trainwreck. Its only unethical if they willfully misinterpreted the quality of the game, which they sort of didn't considering the game still looks bad for 40 bucks. Beside that, a ton of video game news sites agree that the remaster is lackluster.
Heres the Article: http://www.polygon.com/2016/11/17/13670084/assassins-creed-2-remaster-xbox-one-comparison-weird
Polygon updated their article accordingly to the criticism that showed up. They even said that the NPC still has a similar face after testing it on another 360. So the randomizer, at least from Polygons side, is acting strange. Read the article. Sucks that this "randomly generated" NPC turned into a similar meme than the Unity vertex error face guy. I call it the "Wall Guy Syndrome". Can't say the video that counters Polygons criticism made me change my opinion that the remaster is still not a good remaster.
I'm alergic to hyperbole. Instead of jumping the gun, link to both forms (The Polygon article and the YouTube video) so people can make up their own minds instead of reading/listening to just one side and then go "yep, thats true" :)!
Even if Polygon fucked up 100%, people are already saying that Polygon has to go bankrupt and stuff like that, which is also 100% fucked up. I don't even own the remaster, the classic ACs work just as fine and the slight graphical remaster doesn't warrant 60 (40 right now, but thats still too high) bucks for such a lackluster effects and texture remaster. At least Skyrims 64-bit remaster, while still dreadful on certain accounts, is an amazing addition for modding.
The original video seemed to be what everyone based their opinion on so I did not bother linking it, its linked and parts of it are used in the video I linked.
I don't think its a good game either, all the Assassins Creed games I've played have failed to grab my interest. All I am saying is that the polygon video is unfair and misleading, they are cherry picking stuff to cause a shitstorm and get views.
Don't know why you are bringing up people saying Polygon is bankrupt, I've never said anything like that and i fail to see how that is relevant to to my comment.
Seems like they removed that Assassins Creed remaster solely based off that Polygon video. I have never cared about the Assassins Creed franchise but that video is misleading and unethical. Video that explains why: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rol6HJ1uVjs.
Pretty sure I mentioned in the deliberations that the weird face bug is also in the original game, could be misremembering though.
You did, that face was in the original game and so was that animation glitch Alex mentions. The changes in lightning and shading just made the weird face more obvious, they ended up removing it in a patch. My point is that consensus in the grouped still seemed to be that they made it worse with the remaster, if any of you would have played it yourself or looked at any other coverage you would have known that is objectively false. I don't think it belongs on the top 3 at all, but you guys are spreading misinformation by giving the impression that the remaster is worse.
