You know, I know I would've typed something really important here, possibly something related to this feature, but then I realized that the title is pretty self-explanatory.
I see a lot of it as inexperience with the new generation of consoles. For example, if you look back at the first Mass Effect, that game is full of texture-popping woes. As fun as that first game is, it’s hard sometimes to look back at how grainy the graphics are or how blatantly awful the textures pop in. Mass Effect 2 released just a few years later, and the visual difference between the two games is staggering. Same console, same developer, but now they have more experience. However, did the textures detract from how much fun the first Mass Effect game is? Not in the slightest. Sure I giggle when I replay the first game and I see the environments pop in moments after entering them, but it’s never once stopped me from playing the game numerous times or recommending it to others who have never experienced the greatness that is Mass Effect. Assassin’s Creed Unity is suffering from the same inexperience that comes with a new console generation, nothing more.

Now, I've been playing games actively for well over 20 years and professionally writing about them for 15 years, and I still can't tell if this constitutes news - guess that gives you some idea of how unprofessional I am. Regardless, here it is.
Titanfall, the once mega-hyped multiplayer shooter made by the creators of Call of Duty, is now available for purchase for a mere 5 bucks, via the ongoing discount on EA's Origin.
That's the blackness of Black Friday for ya. It makes really awesome game cheaper than Chinese plastic underwear (and I should know *scratch* *scratch*). Or better yet, cheaper than the cheapest hooker in, say, Bulgaria (*scratch* *scratch*).

So, what am I doing at home? It's good that you ask. It's very exciting actually. Look, I've washed my laudry and now it's drying in the room with me.

Assassin's Creed Unity burst onto the gaming scene and was quickly hailed as one the buggiest triple-A releases in 2014. While we weren't bothered by these in-game issues too much, most of the Internet was going nuts, dishing out meme after meme... Ehm, well, ya know I did my part, so don't you forget it.
Meanwhile, Ubisoft is promising more fixes. Right now, they are working on a third major patch for the game, which is going to bring over 300 fixes. Jesus, Lord, 300...
"While you might notice some improvements to framerate as a result of Patch 3," Ubisoft confirmed, "we still have a future patch planned to further address framerate concerns."
Here's a quick snip from their latest patch notes, concerning the PC edition:
Fixed save game corruption in some cases Fixed temporal blur from SLI Fixed graphical corruptions in Character Customization menu Fixed crash in Character Customization menu on controller auto-switch Alt+Enter switches windows correctly NPC on side monitors show correctly Minor UI improvements
