    Ubisoft

    worryingly dated hands-on

    less exciting than expected

    It’s 2024, is there anyone genuinely stupid enough to not have expected exactly that from the start? In a world of passionately programed indi titles and fantastic strides from studios that care about their product, why is anyone taking the time to even look at Ubisoft these days, let alone fall for their scam?

      My friend worked for Ubisoft Montreal and you know how much they paid a senior game dev to work 80+ hour weeks? $56k CAD. Fuck them and fuck their games. Dude was worried about the cost to do his brakes because he already did groceries and they wanted everyone to start showing up to the office again to work.

    I heard the latest preview was on Tatooine and immediately soured to the point of curdling.

    I cannot express this clearly enough: Fuck Tattooine.

    We’ve seen it. It has been done. Its a desert planet with less character than Dune. We get it. Enough. Stop with the Tatooine already, we don’t need anymore tattooine. I hate Tatooine so fucking much, I don’t care how easy sandy rock is to render, tattooine can burn in a pit until you’re ready to make another pod racing game.

      Outlaws’ early gameplay feels positively ancient - not only mechanically but in execution, in its near total lack of character, flair, invention, detail, or style. In trying to describe it, the closest comparison I can draw is with Uncharted: Golden Abyss, which launched in 2011 on the PS VIta.

      I think they meant dated gameplay
