in relation to Wildlands, from reviews of what I've seen pre-release and release, UBISOFT downgrades everything. I have a video to submit as evidence to show what you see in the trailers is hype and will be changed for the worst. in video , all settings are set to high to ensure the best graphics possible. I'll venture to say Wildlands will get the same treatment. so be careful in the way you see UBISOFT games in general because they alway polish the pre-release trailers then downshift for the final release. -Papa6 Published on Jun 4, 2016Comparison between E3 demos and retail version of recent Ubisoft games.

NSFW, some language*** But this guy gives a review of the current state of the game 6 months out and acknowledges the time left to polish the game but explains some of what i have mentioned about the game engine being reused and dumbed down. I'm not getting excited about this title at all and shows in game footage issues and covers why the game thus far is being totaly "hyped" when we should be asking, this is what they came up with so close to release. He gives conjecture to this game going gold about December possible if the release is March 2017. to me all the in game footage reminds me of the mechanics of "the division" and splintercell combined. But all the footage is from in game (June 14th) hopefully this hasn't been posted yet. forgive me if it has. peace out, Papa6
The "use your face in game" thing has been played out. Vegas 2 even had it. if they want credibility for this title, they need to return to the old days. use a predesignated set of ghosts. he'll attribute up as he completes missions like OGR. Still sitting back to watch peoples reactions after it hits the streets. I've come to realize that, Ubisoft doesn't put out demos anymore.. just videos of in game play which are scripted heavily.
I was reading some posts and a thought popped into my head. "What is seriously lacking" and a huge problem that has allowed UBISOFT to skirt the real issue of "what are we going to get is.. no Demo. Games used to be intro'd with a Demo. UBISOFT though endeavors to hide its hand by offering no demo so players know what their getting.. I mean.. who the heck buys a car without a test drive? I think this is a tactic UBISOFT has managed to conceal for a long time. most developers try to use fancy videos with cinematic footage to woo players. But to get a real demo is a dead animal. no developer or publisher can justify selling a game without a user getting a test run on a dumbed down version to at least see what the mechanics and gameplay are like. The Division was just a primer to get the game engine into GR:W.
TO be honest, looking at the in game play, it looks like a cookie cutter of the division. the over the shoulder viewpoint, the movement system, Ubisoft has really entrenched itself as a over the shoulder (OTS) system for most of their games now. it started with GR:FS.. which moved into the GR: online .. which moved into The division.. now this. they essentially took the vantage point of Sam Fisher of the Splintercell series and mashed it into the GR franchise which now 3 franchises all look and feel EXACTLY the same in play, feel and movements. they slapped some textures of guys with beards.. which is true of modern day black ops/spec ops members. I just don't believe in it to this point. I watched the video carefully.. VERY carefully.. some things may function differently in wildlands but the exact same game build style OTS is being presented just in a new package(Game). added later: as for the editions.. wow, where do I start? it takes you away from the game. how many games have people bought, with all these additions, the extreme edition with all the trinkets (just junk). it a marketing ploy folks. they sell the game as the base but bump the cost of the game by adding some map, a cheap headset.. the soundtrack. how about the game? ok.. get the most expensive edition.. open it up and lay it all out on your table when you get it. now imagine your table minus all the stuff outside of the DVD or Digital download.. you just have trinkets you spent 60 quid or up to 90 quid just to get the game and some junk. the tangibles I guess is what I'm saying. then you pay extra to get better firearms? they did this with GR:FS and GR:Online. now they make this huge freaking map and it just plays on what you probably have already.. the division...GR:FS.. and the splinter cell series. sorry for the rant.... but I just wanted to warn people about what is really going on. watch your wallets folks. I hate to see people get duped..again
I've made a conscious decision that before I consider to honestly upgrade to Windows 10, would be AFTER this summers anniversary build release ( aptly named redstone 1) and when about 80% of the promised features that MS has promised to go into 10 are in and stable.
Update 5/3/2016- Currently the word is that Microsoft is trying to seriously push the windows store as a walled in system. it appears they want to push this walled in environment across the OS. basically taking what Windows was, an open back yard and relegating Windows 10 more into a nursery room environment. Not sure how this will play out but, if they push for this "walled garden" approach. but some seem to be saying it won't happen for a long time if ever. Epic co founder calls out MS on walled garden UWP Epic co-founder calls out Microsoft's UWP platform, calls it a 'walled garden'
update* it seems I've heard word that MS is more tablet/device oriented and moving away from the desktop. I have heard word that a group or company Codeweavers are building DX11 into linux with Wine. Hey gamers! DirectX 11 is coming to Linux thanks to CodeWeavers and Wine. So with this feature being worked on, Could Microsofts days as the desktop leader be over? This system by codeweavers could very well, displace Microsoft Windows as a gaming platform which started out with Steam on Linux some years ago. But they are promising that you can run your windows software on Linux through Wine and DirectX11 together! What does this mean? Well, from my experience, the easiest Linux that has gotten a lot of support and is popular for new enthusiasts to Linux is Ubuntu. Which is built off the Debian branch. But We might very well see our gaming slide over to Linux in the not too distant future. I'll keep you posted! Papa6
they knackered up the start menu finally. not too many people are pleased with this. Many think they are forcing 10 to be geared for tablets and mobile devices now. a death kneel for MS is on some folks minds. MS lost 30 billion roughly in lower shares so people aren't feeling good about MS right now. my advice: stick with 7 if your system came with it or 8.1.
Friends, this is the end of the line on this thread for me. I managed to purchase a DVD with every version of Windows 7( from a reputable seller). I use Home Premium which I have an actual installation key. But with 10, I love the OS a LOT. its fast, reacts well, the features but, I like my old games more at the moment. I still have my windows 10 installation USB and will always be there. But the way I work, on the Desktop, which it appears from the news I read that, Windows 10 is being brought back to a more windows 8/8.1 with more structure geared towards the tiles and active tiles for touchscreen tablets. we shouldn't have to install an app like classic shell or start 10 by stardock to get a start menu a user likes or is used to. So I'm back on Windows 7 Home Premium. I can pass on new news but I'm not a user of 10 anymore. cheers. BTW, you can download .ISO files for windows 7 anyway. pretty soon it will be abandonware anyway when support ends. Vista's ends next year at this time. I love Vista as well. Papa6
I have both GR/ DS and IT for steam and on CD gold edition. I went back to Windows 7 since 10 gave me headaches with many games. here's the exact place "C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Ghost Recon\Mods"
Update 4/7/2016. I found that my system won't shutdown nor restart (fast ring builds tend to have issues) So I went back to the prior build and am back on 14295 again. no worries. I'm also back on the slow ring
