So after seeing the GB video today I purchased a copy expecting a corny, mystery FMV game. I'm currently midway through the 8pm sequence, and MAN this game goes places! There's a crazy satanic cult, hardcore drugs, a second murder, and one of the most genuinely terrifying person I've seen in a long time. So yeah, it all seriousness people should buy this game.
I've put maybe 3 hours into the game, and so far I really enjoy the management part, and the art style (when you move the screen, the room perspective shifts which looks incredible). However the combat is poor at best, exploring doesn't seem to have an incentive (You don't bring back more dwellers or supplies). I don't see the point of the dwellers levels, do they operate their rooms better at higher levels? The slow drip of new dwellers I don't mind, and you can theoretically substitute the lack of dwellers with kids (Which I still have yet to have one mature into an adult yet). I wish there were more supplies to manage, or loot, or something to give the game more depth.
DJ Hero 2 was probably my second favorite music game of the past generation (Beatles Rock Band probably takes first in my list). The game had a phenomenal soundtrack, frenetic gameplay, inventive multiplayer modes. The only thing that sucked was the quality of turntable (I burned through three of the things). Anyone else hopeful that maybe DJ Hero makes a return on the new consoles?
How would everyone rank the core assassins creed series? I'm not going to include Rogue, or Liberation since I consider them spinoffs...
Ranking from best to worst I would go:
1. Brotherhood (Best Combat/Mechanics)
2. AC2 (Best Story/Location)
4. Black Flag
5. AC1 (Fantastic concept, flawed execution)
6. AC3 (Too long, boring characters)
7. Revelations (Terrible)
I've been playing a bunch of Unity lately, and i'm actually really enjoying it, which is why I rank it so highly. I like the sense of verticality in the climbing, which I felt was missing in Black Flag.
So I just got a GTX 970... (The MSI version specifically), and it handles everything I hand at it. If you're playing everything at 1080p it should last you 4-5 years. It's smaller than my previous card (a GTX 570), and runs quieter. The software actually has a "Silent" mode, which makes my PS4 seem like a vacuum in comparison. If you buy one before May you also get a free copy of the Witcher 3 which is a neat incentive. I got mine for $320, which is about what I paid for my 570 back in 2011. My point is that if you're looking to play a game like Far Cry 4 at 1080p on High or Ultra settings, the 970 is a fantastic card for the money.
