RE: HaHaHa Assassin's Creed Syndicate HaHaHa
Assassins Creed is a decent franchise, it's not GTA level but it's good, it has it's hits and misses just like any other series. Black Flag for example won 3 different game of the year awards, was one of the best selling games of 2013 and sold over 11 million copies, mainly positive reviews even on steam, with 11,000 reviews only 1,000 being negative and most of those are just dumbasses who cannot figure out how to work UPlay. The series it's self has sold over 73 million copies and has won numerous game of the year awards. You are a small minority for not liking it but that is your opinion but no point in making others share your opinion because they won't and your opinion is not at all shared by most people. Oh well.

I'm sure you do do a great job of selling, you're telling people AC is a good franchise so you got the bullshit part of sales down pact.


What the fuck dude? Why are you giving Ferdy the tenth degree and assuming she's a corporate shill who's only objective is to hawk merchandise like a predator?

Don't you work at a huge big-box retail chain? Should we be giving you shit just because you're a fucking peon for your corporate overlords?

Define "decent" in such a way is not not include any subjective valuation.

You cannot be this stupid.

The only people that buy HALO are casuals and casuals will believe anything you say because you work at a Gamestop and so are perceived to know a thing or two about games. Novelty is all casuals care about and HALO 5: Guardians has the word "HALO" in the title so...

Some people genuinely enjoy the game's mechanics (even if you think they're shit), other's are invested in the story (even if you think it's shit), and still others enjoy Ubisoft's open world style (even if you think it's shit), still other's think it's an excellent value for the amount of time they'll get out of it (even if you think it's shit), and other's genuinely enjoy the historical murder porn (even if you think it's shit).

There are plenty of different reasons and valuations that can cause people to become invested in that game and to enjoy it, and they're not all wrong because you think it's shit; your opinion is not universal or declarative.

See above as to why your personal opinion doesn't hold any universal, objective, or otherwise declarative powers. You can still offer honest criticism of a game or a franchise, offering both pros and cons, without losing your personal integrity; and your insinuation otherwise is uncalled for. Enough other people clearly enjoy the game series well enough to rather easily make a mockery of your entire premise.


(23-10-2015 05:58 PM)earmuffs Wrote:  This is why things such as Steam are so important. I can go to a game and see 200 user reviews, see the collective result of those reviews (positive - negative - mostly positive etc..), even read some of them and see how many hours the reviewer has played that game for. Compare that with going into a gamestop and getting one stupid girls opinion on a franchise that should have died 5 games back and than being charged $80USD for it...


Is every customer a prosumer? Is everyone who walks into a brick-and-mortar store an expert well versed in the esoteric knowledge surrounding everything they're going to purchase? No, and it would be unreasonably arrogant to assume otherwise. Would it be great if more of the video-game buying public was more well informed? Of course! But there are only so many hours in the day; you cannot assume that everyone is aware of how shady Ubisoft is, or be aware of the fact that Assassins's Creed is a yearly release, let alone assuming that everyone else is as tired of the series formula as you are. I'm sure that there will be more than one person for whom Assassin's Creed: Syndicate will be their very first AC game, and all of the prior games in the series (and the criticisms surrounding them) will be wholly unknown and irrelevant. One could even argue that in the pursuit of objective critique, such criticisms should be avoided in favor of judging the game on it's own merits.

But the series being long running, and the last major release generally being considered a huge misstep, does not invalidate the opinion of someone who genuinely enjoys the series (or particular games within) and considers their time and money well spent on it.

No, but I really wasn't expecting anything less.
I'm not surprised that a 'manager' of a gamestop can't even engage in a conversation regarding video games. I'm sure the criteria for your position was 'pretty and tits' anyway, 'no gaming experience required'. This is gamestop afterall.

I really see no harm in hassling her for making stupid claims such as AC being a good franchise. This is an atheist forum afterall, if people make stupid claims they are expected to back them up.

Now considering she's a manager at a Gamestop she should be fully capable of defending her outrageous position. And if she can't and if she can't hold down a conversation about video games despite being a manager at the largest video game specialty store than she deserves more scrutiny. Besides, from experience I can tell you that Gamestop/EB Games does tend to have a culture of hiring the pretty white girl, irrelevant of experience on the topic and so putting two and two together..

I say worst shit to theists and people with wrong political beliefs, I really don't know why you're singling me out specifically for this situation. Is it because she had a cry? Would you be saying the same if it was Blowjob? Why does she get special treatment? On one hand you egg me on but the minute I hassle someone you like it's all "you're a piece of shit"?

Hardly. It's an easy off the top of my head example.
It invalidates nothing. The only invalidation is unwillingness to address the point simply because I used the word "hitler".

I play PC more than I play Xbone.

Halo franchise is a far different ball game to the AC franchise. And I was drinking the hype-aid long before everyone else was having a sip. That's because it actually has a hell of a lot of potential to be a fantastic game, especially if the beta is anything to go by.

And my mom is a classy lady.

Quote:So what you're saying is, you'll do that shit here, but not in real life?

I'll do it in real life if they bring it up (which is what happened in this situation).
I'm saying I'm not gonna bike 45minutes to my neariest EB Games to strike up a conversation about how shit AC is no. Not because I don't want too, but because I don't wanna ride 45minutes each way for it. Where as I don't even need to stand up to have said conversation here.

Quote:What the fuck dude? Why are you giving Ferdy the tenth degree and assuming she's a corporate shill who'd only objective is to hawk merchandise like a predator?

Have you been into a Gamestop/EB Games?

Actually I often suggest better alternatives to customers that involve going to our competitors.

Quote:still others enjoy Ubisoft's open world style (even if you think it's shit)

Never said I think that.

Quote:There are plenty of different reasons and valuations that can cause people to become invested in that game and to enjoy it, and they're not all wrong because you think it's shit; your opinion is not universal or declarative.

Do I need to bring Hitler back into this?

AC isn't bad because I think it is, it's bad because it's repetitive and it portrays itself as an assassin game even though there's zero stealth mechanics or pretty much anything else that makes an assassin an assassin.
Not to mention the business model Ubisoft has going on with the franchise.

Again, just because X amount of people play the games doesn't mean it's a good game...

Billions of people enjoy religion, if someone came up to you with no knowledge of the world and wanted a belief or creed, what would you sell them? Islam, Christianity, Atheism, Buddhism etc..?

Billions of people are Islamic, are Christian, are Hindu etc..
Not a hell of a lot are Atheists. So you have to explain to them the pros and cons, sell them the idea of Atheism BUT one of your arguments is NOT gonna be population based. And just because billions of people are Muslim or whatever doesn't make that a good religion.

This is the same. Why is your argument population based? That has absolutely zero to do with how good of a game it is and you know it because you're a smart dude and especially smart regarding video games. You know how shit this game franchise is.

It's yearly cookie cutter bullshit with a shitty story and shitty game mechanics. That's not opinion that's fact... Hold block and press counter every so often is NOT a good combat mechanic, especially when you're suppose to be an assassin...
Not to mention things like character progression or weapon progression.

Quote:Fuck your sexist shit.

I'm not holding back because she's a women. She's fully capable like anyone else to be hassled by me. I was under the impression she could handle it but it must be her time of month or some shit. see, now that's what sexist shit looks like.

Unlike you, Stark and HoC who seem to feel the need to rush to her rescue.

RE: HaHaHa Assassin's Creed Syndicate HaHaHa
Oh, Muffs is trying to pass his own opinion as universal truth and prove that he's the only True Gamer. And all that while being an asshole. What a surprise.

Black Flag is one of my favorite games ever and I didn't pay for it. I haven't played any other AC game to be honest, I only played it because pirates. I guess I'm a horrible human being for enjoying stuff that others of a higher intellectual capacity do not.

I'm sure all the shit you enjoy Muffs is the bestest in the world.
