I'm so stoked about this game! Graphically this game is incredible the hanger module looks awesome. We should replace "but can it run Crysis?" with "but can it run Star Citizen?"

Although I personally am also VERY excited about The Lays of Althas : Sundered Order, The Witcher 3, and Warhorse. All 3 of those games seem amazing and will surely beat Star Citizen in terms of single player content since Star Citizen's focus is the multiplayer although there will be solo missions and quest lines. I'm also sort of looking forward to some Ubisoft games but overall I gave up on that company:( They are ruining my favorite series right now:'( They made Eagle vision OP and they made enemies hard for all the wrong reasons....

I know. AC died with Brotherhood/Revelations for me, the last two good games. Although, you don't HAVE to use Eagle vision I guess... But still.

Star Citizen will probably be the best online game around for a long time.

It'll be interesting to see what comes for singleplayer games too though, like you mentioned.
To be honest I'm kind of lost as to what series I should buy into now... AC was kinda my thing, but now there's no truly riveting stories in the same genre out there.

I got a new rig recently (images will come someday when I'm not to busy) so I jumped straight into PlanetSide 2 as you can imagine... And was sorely disappointed. I dunno, it just didn't feel right to me. (Didn't help that it was smarter and easier to fly the aircraft in the game with mouse and keyboard than joystick.) -_-

Currently Star Citizen, The Division, Watch Dogs and possibly DayZ standalone are my most anticipated games. Sure, that's a few games and I don't mean to be greedy, but in all honesty AC was what I'd always be hanging out for, but now it's so darn misguided I can't even bring myself to be slightly excited for it.

I didn't like PlanetSide 2 either. And I'm pretty sure you need eagle vision to win AC and back in AC1-brotherhood and maybe revelations it was still reasonably balanced. AC1 almost made it a weakness to use while AC 2 nailed the balancing. But seeing through walls after tagging your enemies, friendlies, and targets and being able to tell who is who by the glow around them is surely OP. (EDIT: I should add that, that is after eagle vision is turned off)

Yeah... I never really got into the whole Eagle Vision thing, which I guess is the reason I've never really been concerned with what Ubisoft do with it. But yeah, I think what people don't seem to realise is that online gaming has grown substantially in the past decade partly due to the fact that games are so easy these days.

I'm currently playing through S.T.A.L.K.E.R Call of Pripyat with the Misery mod, and without having any prior experience with S.T.A.L.K.E.R games. And I can honestly say it's the most epic thing I've played in a long time.
The challenge and learning curve is huge, but I still love it, and I believe that this is what the gaming community has really lost touch with: the challenge and enjoyment that true singleplayer games can give.

Sorry if I seem to be repeating myself, I've had the low battery sign flashing over my brain for all day.

I'm pretty sleepy now as well since I had gotten used to sleeping at 2-5 and now I need to go to sleep before 12 if I have any chance of waking up around 8:(

And I agree games are too easy these days even though they should get harder. I mean AI should be getting smarter not more retarded...

Definitely going to be the best game your money can buy in 2014 (and probably for a long time after).

Can't wait to see those exclusive console players moan about us PC players having special priorities.
