I think you should post at least 50 examples from each site, @joxer. That way I can see what these two sites are all about. Please make each example at least 20 minutes in duration. It takes me longer nowadays

I may buy this AC because it's set in pseudo-Egypt. I haven't played any of the rest though. I will definitely wait till it drops down to $30 or less though.

Finally, the argument game between @JDR13 and In-Fluent-za isn't as compelling as the ones between the former and DArtagnan. I think Dart needs to come back.

You don't need to play any of other AC games.
While you might get confused over present time parts (which are very short TBH, a minute-two and happen only three times in the game), the game is about the birth of AC - a sort of episode 1. And it's story does the job perfectly.

Okay, let's stay on topic. Reviews on AC and their miserable authors.

Anyone noticed Bayek, the hero in this game, face features?
Just imagine lighter skin, less makeup around eyes and a bit lesser nose. It's Desmond, right?
How many reviews noticed or dared to speculate on this? None. Zilch.

In the "finished" thread I've mentioned that the best ingame weapon you can get only from lootboxes. It's Coast of Rusticada:
Spoiler

Again, how many reviewers tell you this? Nada. Barely any mentions microtransactions and lootboxes anyway.

I do seem to lack quality challengers nowadays.

AC actually got slaughtered on the biggest Norwegian gaming site (6/10). Claimed it was mostly more of the same, but with a combat system that was inspired by games that did it way better, and an RPG system that doesn't feel like an RPG system.

There were some highlights though, like the overall setting feeling very fresh and well crafted.

I understand. It's probably frustrating to debate with people who are a little more open-minded than you.

All types of content are uploaded to those sites: horror movies, vlogs etc

Excellent material for a stream chat. That is what a streamer community would like to share.

Whatever man.

Still searching for a detailed review that will cover if not all, most of things worth mentioning being good, bad and ugly. Found a completely different review:
http://www.quartertothree.com/fp/201…-also-destiny/

The score is 2/5 (is it the lowest so far?) where for whatever reason the reviewer compares ACO (okay, some parts) with overrated garbage Destiny.

Seriously? A singleplayer only game is set against a MMO grind-o-rama. I didn't grind anything in ACO and ended with 99% completion on uPlay (admitted I refuse to do chariot need4speed races, that's probably the 1% I lack of). But even if I was revisiting respawned trashmob "hubs", there is no way a singleplayer game compared to rubbish MMO wouldn't "win". Even the worst game ever.

I dunno man, I'd say I'm pretty open-minded. If you knew some of the things I think or believe in real life I think you'd agree.

I am a stickler sometimes for RPGs, but it's just because I want to see more games like ELEX made. They tend to get sh*t on by major reviewers and a certain type of gamer and it's annoying to me. I get riled up and end up fighting people over it. So now I just (try and) refrain from arguments in general.

Reviewers rush to publish. Streamers provide as they go for the 100 completion.

I agree with the idea.

Although pretty sure Fluent is the exception.

The problem with browsing random internet porn is that it tends to go like this: OK, good, yes that's pretty hot… Oh god No! What the hell is wrong with people?!

And I'm just crazy enough to do games that are that size on the channel. Those 2 LPs alone each have over 90 hours of video! Insane, really.

When I am motivated, I get busy.
