Julius is the obvious field consul choice imo, my guy is basically only useful if at Rome and not really worth putting in charge of legions compared to militarist senators.
Yes I was wondering about that. The context I mean. No excuses if he did hit her. But I certainly know some girls who would be able to stage something like this perfectly. I know a guy who works all day then comes home to his wife to have to cook and look after the kids because she is tired. Them at midnight he gets on the pc and his wife goes nuts. She has cost them many smashed monitors and does other things like pulling the cords and deleting files. Happens to be an ex gamer herself actually. She is so nuts I wonder when she will stage something like this. Lucky we all know he is the calm one.

And if the internet goes down?

Most AAA games these days require an internet connection to play anyway. This system is definitely not recommended for people with a weak or unreliable connection.

JD, if I recall, you have like over 100 hours into this game. Whatís with all the negativity? Ubisoft has released 3 major content updates for this game...for free. I think they deserve some credit for doing this. These updates could very easily be paid dlc.

Yes, the side missions get samey. But find me a an open world sandbox type game weíre this is not an issue. Itís an issue thatís somewhat hard to avoid given the nature of the game. The release of the content updates help to add new life, and at least for a few hours, they succeed. Besides, the repetitive nature of this game has not stopped any of from sinking hundreds of hours into it, and it sounds like youíre only playing half the game. Have you played Ghost War? Any of the challenge modes? Any of the PVP stuff? I get it, that sort of thing may not be youíre bag, but itís  a significant part of the game and a big part of the reason why itís still going strong.

The answer to that is duh.   :buck2:

I don't think your graphics card will matter much -- it's designed to work on large phones and pads, too. I was looking into something like this for my brother to use for his iPad in accessing my computer to play games on, but the security problems were too whack. (Especially because he works in a bank and they provide his pad, and his pad connects to his own doofy family computer, etc.)

You're basically just streaming video and audio, and sending input signals back to the source to control what output it's streaming back to you. It would be like interactive youtube.

I couldn't say I didn't get my money's worth - that's true. But given the size of the game and the scope, it would've been nice for there to be enough variety to make it enjoyable the whole way through as opposed getting tired on it half way through.

I'd rather they created half the game and world and filled it with interesting things to do than give such a massive, open game and fill it with the same stuff - I just see their games as missed opportunities. This all seemed to stem from around Far Cry 4. The Division was the first one that stuck out with really repetitive gameplay. Kit was great and some loot was good - but it can't just be about that. There's got to be interesting stuff to do.

It's almost like they think reward - any reward - is what's needed. Just look at that stuff listed in their video...Battle Crates, Challenge Rewards, Customisations. They're all nice things to put in a game - but they don't keep everyone's attention for very long. For me it feels like they're pandering to the ADHD market - "Quick - the player opened a door - reward them with this shite or they'll get bored"  :buck2:

Also - what's this Battle Crates crap. Didn't EA try those? They were piss poor. And do you buy these with "impossible to make" in-game currency or real money? I see they've already mentioned in-game store purchases of weapons. Is that real money? Or grinding in game?

Hopefully Odyssey is a turning point and they flesh their massive worlds out with great things to do and their previous games have been them finding their feet.
I agree with Michael.

I also want to note that the clip thatís on the internet is just that.
We donít have any context. Its clear this guy made very bad choices by attacking his wife like this and showing this aggression in front of his children, but for all we know that family might have had a toxic relation well beyond this clip and she is to blame just as much.

Whatís clear though is that the true victims here, without a doubt, are those children.
