So many of you might not know but Ubisoft had this little competition (http://uplay.ubi.com/en-US/events/next-gen/gifts) where they were giving away free copies of Assassin’s Creed 4 for both XB1 and PS4, season pass for AC4, or Just Dance 4 for PS4 and XB1. I dropped the Assassin’s Creed series after the third one, I was a huge supporter of both the present day story and the historical story. but after the ending of the 3rd which I won’t spoil for anyone out of respect I had to drop the series. The game that was the supposed ending of the trilogy was just so, so bad and felt like(and most likely was) written at the very last second to continue milking the series. Hell, Revelations the game that was leading up to AC3 had more closure. Now I know that AC4 is apparently the best one in the series but I refuse to buy it, sometimes you just got to say no. But then I hear about this Next-Gen prize thing Ubi was doing.
Now last Saturday was the last day to win a game/or season pass, it was also my first time hearing of this competition from lurking in Neogaf(I was perma banned so I can’t post anymore 😦 ) and the last batch of codes were being given out at 8pm, which was about 20 minutes away so I figured, eh why not give it a shot, I’m kind of feeling that next gen drought anyway. Then boom, I won a copy of AC4 for the PS4! I’ve been waiting for my code for almost a week, I started to doubt I won too but I can see my username on the winner list so that cleared up. Unfortunately since I didn’t get the code yet I highly doubt I’ll be playing it anytime soon even once it arrives since school starts Monday. But, if it gets here tomorrow or Monday I’ll try my best to just blow through it before Monday.
There hasn’t really been much of a reason for it honestly. Just haven’t felt like posting anything. 😡 Well since last time I posted I bought The Last of Us and beat it. Pretty sad ending if you ask me. Also saw Sony’s Gamescom presentation, and let me just say I’ve lost all hope on the Vita ever picking up steam. Once again it was just port, port, port and more indie games. I have no problem with indie games, I do have a problem when the game has been for quite some time and they begin boasting about it like it’s the hottest shit to ever grace the system. I didn’t spend $250 to play ports and old indie games that I can get cheaper on PC.
I’ve already cancelled my pre-order for Killzone Mercenaries, no sense in buying more games on a system I’ve lost complete faith in. Once I beat Persona 4 Golden I’ll either sell the system or hold on to it to see if it’s any good at remote play(which if we’re being totally honest I doubt it’ll work as advertised.) Also I lol’d at the memory card price drops, it’s only like $20 cheaper now. the 32gb should cost $50 max, and the 4gb should be included with the system itself. Whatever though, makes no sense in worrying about memory card prices now. Don’t even get me started on the awful camera crap. Whoever was the camera director should either be fired or something. Overall I’d give that presentation a 1. The only reason it even gets a one is for at least announcing the PS4 release date, if it wasn’t for that I would’ve given it a 0. They might as well have just shown me an hour of Wonderbook 2 or some other crap I don’t care about.
Yay it finally came! The good news is that it came with all its original packaging which is sweet, but unfortunately there is also bad news. DS3 tool doeskin detect it as a ps3 controller so i cant emulate it as a 360 controller through that. Also no game seems to natively support the controller, Sleeping Dogs for example opens up the map when you press either r2 or l2. I cant seem tp find a way to fix it either so I’m quote disappointed. I know, i know, if i wanted it for pc gaming why get the ps3 version instead of the 360 version? Well for one the ps3 version was 30 bucks cheaper and i kind of wanted a new ps3 controller so why not hit two birds with one stone? Anyway its pretty late so I’m just going to go to bed and try again tomorrow when i get home from school. Wish me luck.
EDIT: Finally after hours of fiddling around with x360ce I got it working with Sleeping Dogs! Now I can play the game with my awesome new controller during the weekend! Can’t wait.
