I could see this work. I don't trust Ubisofts ability to QA test their games enough to think it will actually work, but I don't see why an RPG in the AC setting would not work. A full on strategy…

I've only tested the PS3 version, but I found combat to feel very unresponsive in it. This is very much unlike the GC version which had more responsive combat (and ran better in general). There are…

It was a reference to an old interview made with someone at Bethesda at around the time of the release of Daggerfall, when they talked about why they went with a more free-form system where you would…

The old mainstay of CRPGs "Kill trolls->Get better at lockpicking" has always come across as a bit strange to me.

Did they fix the issues with QTE prompts not always showing up on PC? Because that was super annoying in TR 2013.

Simple, if your game is on steam, you don't need to worry about things such as patch distribution and such, steam does it for you, so it cuts down on some expenses. If you release a DRM-free version…

TB (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BYRibkfPXM0) liked the game, but said that the AI was really bad and it cheats in skirmish mode, and there are far too few maps.

As long as they keep adding games, it looks like an alright deal, for anyone who plays a lot of games and tend to move on after finishing one. With the current lineup, it won't have much of a lasting…

I would recommend the opposite. He, Cyan and a 3rd character I won't spoil are borderline useless. Gau and the 3rd character are borderline useless due to how unpredictable they are, which makes them…

They should have tailored the interface to the device being used. It was an issue that Final Fantasy V had as well, it felt like the interface was working against you, and by the looks of it, the…

If you create a good AI foundation, then there is the potential for less scripting to be needed for each level, which in turn means that you'll have to spend less time testing your levels. I suspect…

Have you tried DoomRL? (http://doom.chaosforge.org/)
It does not quite fit all of your criteria (I don't think you can turn off permadeath), but it's a really fun game. Most levels are randomly…

They kinda asked the community to make nude skins though. Not directly, but talking about how you should NOT make nude skins in an easily modded game and leaking the information needed to make your…

Actually, that's one point where I would defend Ubisoft over Valve. Steam servers being down seem to be a daily event (sometimes happening more than once a day), and while it does not generally last…

Ubisoft managed to create a technically broken version of Tetris? I'm not even surprised at this point. Can they even release games that work?
Well, yes…

I found it charming, and I could relate to most of the characters. On the flipside I found Squall to be a really boring character who I could not relate to. Cloud also mostly fell into that category….

It might be worth just playing the fan translation of FFV, due to the issues with the steam version.

I've never been super impressed with the FF series myself. Played through 5-9 over the years,…

That's correct, both FF 3 & 4 were DS ports. I own FF3, and the port seemed good enough (but the game was rather boring).

Thus far they've released them by theme, so when Horse Lords was released, the "Content pack" for that one contained things related to that, rather than having a face pack and a music pack. So yes,…

That's a really bad sign. I was gifted FF V (which is, from a gameplay perspective, actually quite good for a JRPG, as it offers you a lot more choices in how to design your party members), and the…

If he is just posting mildly altered stock images, then that would indicate that all he is trying to do is stall for time.

Also, "7 issues"? If the game only has 7 known issues, then it would…
