How is Far Cry 4? BTW I heard it was a pain with Ubisoft's Uplay system?
Far Cry 4 is amazing. Got it on release day and I've already put almost 30 hours into it. Spent 6 hours playing it the other night without doing a single mission. Got distracted hunting and taking down cargo trucks.

UPlay was pretty bad the first day...seemed like it got overwhelmed, but it's been good since. I would highly recommend FC4.

It's amazing to me how Ubisoft can put out two AAA games in a week and have one be great (FC4) and one be seriously broken (AC Unity).

Playing "This War of Mine", possibly one of the best indie games I've played in a while.

Thanks for the feedback. Every since they moved from the original Far Cry concept I've stayed away. I tried Far Cry 2 a few months after it was released and never finished it. Simply didn't like it.

Steam had a deal last week where you could get the Far Cry franchise pack for like 10 bucks, obviously minus FC4, but I passed.

Anyway I'm currently playing Dragon Age: Inquisition which I'm loving. I just put in about 4 hours today, and so far I've got 8 hours total though I started late last night.

EA and Ubisoft should stick and focus on creating games and should stop with Origin and Uplay DRMs because it's not gonna work at all

I don't know... Origin seems to be working fairly well seeing it's been around since June 2011. It's not as robust or as popular as Steam, but I don't see it going anywhere.

As for DRM schemes... you're never gong to stop anything 100 percent, just like you're not going to stop thievery 100 percent. All you can do is lessen the losses.

And in that respect, something is better than noting... and these seem to work a whole lot better than nothing

My two cents.

You've got a point...I just wish they could come up with ONE service. It really sucks having 4 different services (Origin, UPlay, Steam and Battle.net) installed on my computer that have to launch depending on what game I want to play.

For example...I bought Assassin's Creed Unity on Steam. I click on the ACU shortcut and wait for Steam to update and launch...which then launches UPlay which usually has to update...which then kicks me back to Steam.

I'm lucky if I can start actually playing the game within five or six minutes of double-clicking the shortcut. That's a bit ridiculous.

I certainly do agree that all these game managers is a bit much. If I had to choose just one, it would be Steam. They've been around a long time and they know how to run a game manager.

I guess some of the game companies don't want to pay Steam for their services, whatever they may be. I know EA had a hissy fit about the way Steam handled their DLC's thus they moved to their own service, and basically banned them from selling anymore EA titles. I think it started with Mass Effect 2 and subsequent game titles from there.

Not watching because I haven't really started Evil Within yet and don't want any spoilers.

But overall, what do you think of it? It looked promising from what I did play.

I have a pretty big backlog right now

I just finished Lords of the Fallen and now on Dragon Age Inq.

Lords of the Fallen was OK, and for those who loved Dark Souls may be worth a look. For those who do not like the Souls games, don't bother because they are ALOT alike. Its quite obvious where Lords gets its inspiration.
It had some good concepts, and in some ways a bit better, but overall it falls short of expectation IMHO. But it can be frustrating at times. Combat feels clunky sometimes and smooth other times for example.

If you are interested, I wouldn't pay full price for it IMHO. Ok game, but not worth 50 or 60$$
I may actually replay it though, as a Warrior. I finished as a Cleric and didn't complete all the optional content or get all the collectibles.
