"I like the comic but I don't like his house - run_like_snot"12


Started playing Assassin's Creed Unity over the weekend. Thankfully, the game has been patched somewhat seeing as I didn't encounter any bugs or glitches of any kind. Mind you, this morning the game did crash once. But, that's like it. The free-running mechanics seemed to have been tweaked somewhat, so it feels different for me after Assassin's Creed Rogue. It's nice to be back in the AC world. I'm gearing up to try a bit of co-op today, so that should be interesting as well.

Otherwise, I'm keeping my eyes open for more sales on Steam. I'd advise you good folks to keep a lookout as well.

Talk to ya soon.

Time to put the comic up.

Keri sits down and listens to some music again. This time she gives us her thoughts on the official soundtrack for Ubisoft's action adventure Assassin's Creed Unity.

Have a little taste:

It’s possible that my love of the harpsichord has clouded my judgment for this soundtrack, but I strongly believe that I would loathe it if it wasn’t done well. All of the harpsichord and well, sounds of the era can be found on the second volume of the Assassin’s Creed Unity soundtrack, composed by Sarah Schachner. Schachner does more than simply incorporate in the harpsichord and the formulaic classical intonations that would have been heard in 18th century Paris; she masterfully crafts each track to embody the time period in musical form. When listening to the soundtrack outside of the game, you can’t help but be transported back to that era as well as to the scenes from Assassin’s creed Unity.

Read on.

Larian studios, the creators of the RPG Divinity: Original Sin, have revealed that they intend to utilize the Divinity engine for their next RPG.

"Both RPGs are being built on top of the D:OS engine," uncovered Larian main man Swen Vincke. He added: "It also means that we can spend most of our resources on developing new cool stuff without having to reinvent things that worked well already. And it immediately gives us a rationale for putting unreasonable amounts of effort in fixing the things we didn't do that well in D:OS, meaning our existing players will continue to get improved gameplay for as long as we can maintain compatibility. Furthermore, it also means that the toolset is going to be improved for a long time to come and so eventually we'll get more and better mods. We'll even have a Linux version."

In September 2014, Divinity: Original Sin garnered over half a million bucks, with Larian boss saying: "So much for turn-based fantasy RPGs not selling."

The game was also the most wanted title on Steam for a while.

Check out our full review of the D:OS.

Ubisoft confirmed today that Far Cry 4: Escape from Durgesh Prison, the fresh downloadable content for the open-world shooter, is going to hit the market on January 13, 2015 via XBL and for PC and on January 14, 2015 on PSN.

Word is: "In Escape from Durgesh Prison, Ajay and Hurk wake up after being captured, tortured and stripped of their weapons in Yuma’s prison. Thrown in the dangerous world of Kyrat without anything to defend themselves, players will complete a series of challenges to find weapons and unlock new skills while trying to reach the extraction point to safety. Playable in single player and coop, this difficult mode will keep players running across Kyrat to complete side objectives dictated by Pagan Min to recover their lost weapons and upgrade their gear before a final stand-off with Yuma's forces. To ramp up the challenge, when players die they must start the mission over again and use the knowledge and skills they gained during their previous run through to help them reach their extraction point successfully."

There's more info. Oh and just so you know, the DLC will cost you $9.99.

Strictly among space shooter devs, ya know. Chris Roberts who is currently working on a space shooter called Star Citizen, has congratulated the devs from Frontier, who have recently launched their own space shooter, Elite: Dangerous (from the maker of the classic, Elite).

"I would like to congratulate David Braben and the entire team at Frontier Developments on this week's launch of Elite: Dangerous," Roberts stated via a post on the Roberts Space Industries website. "I have been a supporter of the Elite reboot since day one, and am thrilled to see it become a reality. I'm looking forward to taking a little bit of time off of Star Citizen during the holidays and firing up the finished version of E:D."

Meanwhile, it seems like Chris and his crew are taking forever with Star Citizen, which recently gathered a budget of $65 million through crowd founding.

I cannot even master the strength to formulate my opinion on this. In short, Markus "Notch" Persson bought a new house in LA for $70 million. Here's a bit about his house:

Entertaining will be a snap with vodka and tequila bars, a candy room, an 18-seat tiered screening room, a state-of-the-art kitchen and an exquisite 18-foot onyx dining room table for 24 that includes place settings by Roberto Cavalli at a cost of $3,700 each. Three high-definition 90-inch television screens bring panoramic views of Los Angeles from the roof into the down stairs lounge — especially breathtaking at night, says De Los Reyes. Art pieces include a replica of James Dean's motorcycle and a chromed Ma Deuce machine gun. On a conventional note, the home has eight bedrooms and 15 bathrooms all equipped with Toto Neorest toilets at a price of $5,600 each.

Just one question, Mr. Minecraft. Do those babes go with the house?

All I can say is, wait for tomorrow's webcomic. That'll be my 2 cents on the whole thing.

Thanks LACurbed for reporting on this.

Best synopsis for a movie ever:

A developer tries to bulldoze a community recreation center. The local breakdancers try to stop it.

Tha fak more do you want?  

Although it doesn't top the plot for Flashdance:

A Pittsburgh woman with two jobs as a welder and an exotic dancer wants to get into ballet school.

Gotta love it. Sometimes, I miss the naive gayness of the 80s. Things were simpler back then.
