Lastly, Guillemot says that he wants to invest more time and money into smaller, off-beat titles like Valiant Hearts and Child of Light, which have proven to be very successful for the company without costing millions of dollars and requiring colossal development cycles.[/quoute]
This sounds suspiciously at odds with Ubisoft's attitude 2 years ago. They're sounding a bit Mitt Romney to me, trying to appear to hold every opinion at once.
Thats what they looked like to you? All i saw from them was [Marketing Ploy To Earn Customer Trust Back In Time For Holiday Season]. At least we know Ubisoft is already putting whats its learned into practice, dropping the co op MP from AC:S.Kargathia said:
They're singing it, but so far we haven't seen much more than lofty promises and some backpedalling out of any of those three companies.gigastar said:Thats what they looked like to you?

Though of course, doesnt mean you should let your guard down for a moment. Im certainly not.
I'm a cynic, Lack. This is like listening to my parents. There's alot of promises being thrown around, but I don't think it's a matter of faith on this one. If they DO change, I'll be pleasantly surprised and happy for them. And if they don't relapse, even better.lacktheknack said:Would it kill you guys to, instead of immediately entering uber-cynical-edgy-teenager-mode, to maybe have just a bit of quiet hope? It would do wonders for my blood pressure, and Ubisoft was a great publisher not too far back.
I... I..."It's a real challenge to create those types of games," said Guillemot. "When they come out, especially the first iterations, they are not perfect on everything. We think we launched a good quality game for a first step in a new brand with a new technology. It's just so complex - seamless multiplayer, connectivity with mobile and tablets, so many things - it was maybe a bit too much for a first iteration."
What... what THE FUCK. Is.. is this PR? Tell me this isn't PR, they're trolling, right?"With E3 2015 we said, OK, let's make sure the games are playable, that they're running on the target machines. When we show something, we ask the team, make sure it's playable, make sure gamers can immediately see exactly what it is. That's what we learned from the Watch_Dogs experience - if it can't be played on the target machine, it can be a risk."
The implication there is that wasn't a standard beforehand.. this has taken you almost 3 TO DO?! (Ah, who am I kidding, this is bullshit anyway).Let's make sure the games are playable
