I’ve had enough of this. I think we all can agree that so far this has been a disappointing year in PC gaming.
First of all, Watch_Dogs have been delayed for a few months but they’ve managed to brake it anyway, it was significantly different from the E3 trailers – although it was somehow playable if you forced yourself on it. However, recent Ubisoft games are just fucking garbage. Assassin’s Creed: Unity is a horrible joke, I just can’t wrap my mind around this: How can you release such a shitty port to the public and advertise it like it’s a major master piece?
Don’t forget their 30 FPS bullshit excuse. Really? 30 FPS? Go ahead and play that on 120Hz screen and tell me it looks nice. It doesn’t and never will. If I ever read about how human eye only sees 24 FPS I will punch somebody. Who the hell cares what human eye sees or not? It’s all about the feeling, smoothness of the game, try playing some fast paced shooter at 24 frames per second on a 4K screen you morons. And I’m talking about PCs, if your console can’t handle more than 24-30 FPS that’s fine, play on that if you want.
Far Cry 4. Just when I thought it can’t get any worse they’ve somehow managed to fuck up Far Cry 4, a game I really wanted to play in coop this year. Coop is seriously broken, the game progress doesn’t save for the second player so if you join your buddy be prepared for a major disappointment.
It’s such a bad port you can’t even move mouse properly because it behaves like an emulated XBOX One controller. If you’ll have a chance to play that on PC just launch it and see what I mean. Besides the Ubisoft forum users see that too. And the stuttering, oh my dog, it’s so annoying you can’t even play the game, see the recent video from TotalBiscuit on YouTube.
Do you think The Crew will be any different? Let’s hope so but I’m not pre-ordering that.

What about other publishers and developers? Rockstar Games still haven’t released GTA 5 for the PC but the launch of Grand Theft Auto V Online was essentially broke for a good two weeks on the consoles. I wonder if that’s going to repeat itself in January for the PC release…
Battlefield 4 was just crap, it shouldn’t even come out yet, just EA and their standard money making scheme. Titanfall kept players interested for a few weeks at most then it got repetitive and boring.
Destiny was hyped up to be the greatest game ever, but lacks a story that players could really enjoy. It’s obvious that content was cut from the game, and this shows in parts of the game while you play it.
Noticing the pattern here? Games are becoming less refined. We should stop pre-ordering games, especially from companies who have a history of releasing shit. Just wait and see if the game runs clean (check it out online, YouTube is full of independent game reviewers or whatever), then buy it.
At worst you’ll miss out on a few days of gameplay, instead of getting ripped off. Most of us can’t afford to waste another €60.
No more preordering, and no more buying season passes before the game comes out. Stop it. Unless it’s Valve games. You can’t go wrong with these. Remember when The Orange Box came out? I’ve pre-ordered that instantly when I saw the ad on Steam and I love it. I miss those times, where are you Half-Life 3?
