^Is that Wolfenstein: The New Order? I've been thus far impressed by what I've seen

I'm playing Watch Dogs finally, and thus far, not too impressed. Like, it's not bad, but I wouldn't rave about it, and here's why:

-Not very well optimized for PC, mines chugging along in parts for no good reason, and it looks nice, but it's not the jaw-dropping nice games like Crysis and Metro: 2033 were when they were the system killers

-Uplay: sucks. Fuck it, sometimes works, sometimes doesn't, as a DRM/Digital Content Delivery service, it's shit. I wish Ubisoft would just licence Steam and valve would let them have a section on it with their own skin so they can feel like one of the big boys, and we get something that actually works

-Player control is a bit finicky, but that's not my biggest issue. The cars, handle like shit, and cops seem to have an infinite speed hack turned on because you don't seem to be able to just outrun them in a fast car, it basically relies on you hacking stuff to run them off the road. I dunno, I get the hole hack-mechanic is the point of the game, but this is a gimmick they may have over-done in certain areas

Uplay is always a deal breaker for me, the worst is when a game comes out on Steam and it doesn't say it needs Uplay on the game page. (Trials Evolution or whatever one I got)

You wonder why I hate Ubisoft so.

Oh, no, I don't wonder at all. It took me no less than 10 attempts at resetting my password just to get to a point where I could put my key in to get the game. Uplay is a piece of shit and I wish Ubisoft would give up, let Steam have their monopoly...

So I'm not the only one unimpressed by Watch_Dogs. Good. Definitely not worth the hype.

Thus, I'm still playing Battlefield 4 on PS4, and Mind=Zero on Vita.

I was turned off by Watch Doge when I saw it in action this year at PAX East. Ubisoft has finally surpassed EA in being the masters of the bullshot.

And Arc couldn't be any more right about Uplay being the actual devil.

Wolfenstein is solid, but not amazing. Then again I'm playing it on the PS3, which is probably the weakest version. Then again I'm also only borrowing it from a friend, so I'm not that mad.

I still reckon I'm going to pick it up to see if its worth. Admittedly I wish I had the money to pre-order it at the time so I would have gotten early access to Doom 4, or Doom, or whatever id software in there craziness decided to call it.

As far as Watch Dogs goes, like, its not bad, but like someone said, not worth the hype. Then again, I got it for free with the graphics card I ordered so I'm ok with it either being good or utterly terrible.

Truth be told now that my internets working again I'll probably shelve it while I go play some more Starcraft and download something worth playing out of my Steam library. Might see if Bioshock: Infinite was worth the hype that got. Or Company of Heroes 2 since I can run it properly since said graphics card purchase

Bought Mass Effect 3 on sale on Origin, so I've played through that once so far.
Just finished Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood again, as I'm re-playing the series.
In addition to that, I'm playing Elder Scrolls Online in between

Spent less than $10 during this current Steam sale on Halo: Spartan Ops and Age of Empire II. May bite the bullet and pick up Fallout: New Vegas UE for $6.70 too.

I spent about $40 on Bioshock Infinite, The Stanley Parable and Goat Simulator. Might also pick up Spec Ops the Line.

Currently playing Valiant Hearts: The Great War. Love it so far.

Finally working through my FINAL Fallout NV DLC - Old World Blues. Loving it so far! The premise is a little zany, but the NPC development and interaction makes it seem like it makes sense, and there are little tie-ins to the other DLCs, which I like. Hopefully I'll finish before Baby Crankypants arrives, though I may have time for gaming on all those sleepless nights.

Doooooo iiiiitt! Can't beat the sheer value in playability, especially at only $6.70!

Since you got BSI, you should also pick up that BSI DLC pack for $10. Burial at Sea pt 1 is a little slow, but part 2 is definitely worth thr $10
.

Spec Ops is dope as is G.O.A.T. Simulator. I've yet to play TSP, despite owning it

I've played Okami for the Wii, and I took a break from it. I adore the game, butt I'm getting too close to the end!

That, and my Wii controller's batteries are getting low, so I'm revisiting my Gamecube games.
I was playing Sonic Adventure 2: Battle for the longest, currently raising 6 Chao lol. Then I picked up Super Smash Bros. Melee. I realized how terrible I am with that game. Then, I'm now on Mario Party 6. Snowflake Lake for the win!

Currently playing through The Wolf Among Us and the Penumbra series (minus Requiem). I'd really like to give Outlast a go, but I don't think my computer can handle it. ;__;

Also hoping to buy Okami for my PS3 and then Okamiden, if I can get good deals on them. I used to play Okami a lot and could really use a nice game to play and chill to. Great music and visuals, with a fun adventure to go through. People have said nice things about Okamiden, too, and since I have a DS with only one or two games I regularly play, why not?
