So the game is Ubisoft's usual epic waste of time in a fun sandbox, but with a smart mouthed AI? Sounds cool.

Doubt Yahtzee will ever even see this but I would absolutely love some sort of sequel to Jam. It is easily my favorite book of his and have read it at least four times. That doesn't sound like much but even rereading a book once is rare for me. Anyone else enjoy it?

Ah, Agent Pierce...wearing a face mask BEFORE President COVID made it trendy! Also here Yhatzee got pepper-sprayed, and in that "Little Hope" video he got smacked by a literal wrecking ball...I like the attempt to add new visual effects, but...is he secretly a masochist, or is that just my inner sadism sneaking out and projecting? More seriously, that ending...MAN, Ben, your writing is REALLY improving! Or maybe I'm just high off Internet Farts and/or Gloryhammer.

I've been playing it and it's a lot more shallow than it feels at first. There aren't many creative skills or weapons and mostly it's made boring by bad AI. I would wait until it's really cheap.

I had an old man that I recruited early on when i saved him from an Albion soldier. His only quality other than being slow was he had an MP5 sub machine gun. I used him for a lot of the heavy combat missions. I called him the old senile man with a gun and I pretended he was angry all the time (even though he had the biggest smile I had ever seen in an NPC in that game. The game ended up automatically picking him for part of one of the final missions. My crazy grumpy old man ended up having a touching bit of dialogue with the AI at the very end. My old angry senile guy ended up being the most wholesome character in the end

What bothered me the most about this game is probably the lack of severity and how wishy-washy people seem to be. I mean; Dedsec is labeled as fucking mega-terrorists and horrible people, and as far as normal people know: they are, but after like... half a year or so of being “oppressed” (at most one person being half-heartedly kicked on the sidewalk... also they’re literally fucking allowed to protest with no resistance) everyone has decided that they’re sick and tired of Albion and go off to join the (possibly presumed dead) terrorist group without any real sign that they’re the good guys. Seriously though, it’s only been half a year, dystopia need time, goddamnit.

I never touched the spider drone, I never upgraded it, at most I used the stationary drone, but only as a defensive options when things go south and for collectibles, never for objectives. My play-style was "Execution dominance". Most of my characters needed to have a custom handgun like a revolver or a deagle, but I never actually shot any bullets outside animations, all I was doing, was running up in stealth or loud to enemies and just takedown them, or melee them with fists, equip gun, then execute them to assert dominance. The fun grew exponentially when I've got a hitman, as they can takedown if a weapon is equipped even if they spot you. I was just blazing through every single outpost, executing every single one of them and I think in my last 7 hours of gameplay, I have used only the electroshock grenade launcher for drones, I have fired 0 bullets outside the execution animations. Also I've played with elders, and that was amazing. I had a lot of fun *10/10*

Okay, bear with me a moment. The protagonist is not any singular recruit. The main character with the story development is Bagley the AI. I didn't realize this until after the main story. The playable characters are the drones for Bagley. The game is much, much more enjoyable with this in mind.

Y'know what, it used to be "Ugh Ubisoft NEVER changes" but as the state of triple A gaming has deteriorated it's become more "Yay! Ubisoft NEVER changes!" Cause like, yea the games are kind of vapid collectathons usually. But there's a time and a place for that, and it's after a long day where you can turn your brain off and chill. I've never had anything less than "fun" playing any game since farcry 3. Although to be fair I haven't played many of the asscreeds.

Let's not forget that any recruitment mission means fast traveling to the other side of the map to do 1 trivial thing, then fast traveling to another to do another trivial thing, which means fast traveling back to tell the person you did the 2 trivial things and want them to join your club.

If you don't use the fucking spiderbot except for ones included in buildings it's alright. Better than WD2 where you just sat in a cherry picker with a drone doing literally every mission ever. Both games I ended up playing suboptimally just to enjoy it because using the features they put in are just unfun. They should have made the mass surveillance society better at catching people who gunned down a police station with an AK when they take their mask off 2 seconds out of exiting the building. Some kind of way for characters to become fugitives who are much harder to use now or something.
