Assassin's Creed: Unity doesn't have the skins
I would say that's actually quite accurate.
OT: Ubisoft, by a mile. For the moment, at least, EA seem to be trying to keep their head down, and when they do
make a mistake, they have the good grace to stand there, staring at the floor, shuffling their feet and looking shamefaced. I'm willing to give EA a chance and extend an olive branch, based purely on the fact that they at least seem
to be trying to make up for their past behaviour and not be so shit any more.
That's not to say they aren't guilty of still making the same mistakes, just look at Titanfall's DLC, for example, or the clusterfuck that is The Sims 4, but at least they're trying
, and I will always respect that.
Ubisoft, on the other hand, can go take a flying fuck at a doughnut, for all I care right now. Their latest batch of lazy, offensive and downright insulting PR spewing from their arseholes, as well as their constant price-gouging, has caused whatever good will I might have had for them to fly out the window.
£60+ they want for Far Cry 4, and not the retail version, either. Digital distribution through places like Origin. I'm sorry, but for a game with little to no overhead in sale, that is disgustingly
over-priced. I balk at paying that much for a retail copy of a special edition (though I have done it), never mind something that has no physical presence! £20 would be a more reasonable price. £30, at an absolute most, and for that price, it better either have some of the best extra content in the world, or be suitably large enough to justify the cost.
Again, not to say EA is innocent of this, but Ubi seem to be really bad for it lately. Remember The Stick of Truth? Yeah, £40 for that. Not once has it appeared on sale (to my knowledge).
tl;dr: Ubi drools, EA drools less.
