Man I hate it when developer's start talking as if they're reinventing the wheel. Choice has been the main theme of countless games for years now. The game looks ok but nothing groundbreaking.

It's amazing how they can take such a cool Idea, with such a unique universe, and make a seemingly utterly generic game :(

Yes, I hate that too. But you have to admit that there is something wrong with James Cameron. The man is becoming more and more megalomaniacal.
So, what else can Ubisoft do than say the same as he is proclaiming?

The graphics look nice, but not 'wow'. The gameplay looks very generic especially playing as a soldier (Lost Planet copy paste). The story? Who knows?

    GriftGFX The most interesting thing in that article (to me) is the dynamic optimization in Forza Apex. That's a nice piece of tech that should make its way into other engines. (35 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Article should be called: "How to lock your games to 30 frames a second on a GTX970" (37 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX But why would you? A GTX970 isn't even enough to game comfortably at 1440p, let alone 4K. Robbing yourself of performance for IQ at that point. (1 Hour ago)

    GriftGFX His name is actually more fitting. Socrates didn't speak nonsense. That's exactly what Nostradamus did. (14 Hours ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite He should rename himself Socrates for speaking in them riddles. You need a PHD to decipher that madness. (14 Hours ago)
