ZombiU actually seemed really cool from the demo, but I don't know if it's the kind of game I want to spend $40 on without the option of reselling later. A cool deal for anyone interested though. I hope they keep doing these kinds of sales.
I didn't really enjoy ACIII. Granted, I didn't beat it, but like Pokefreak said they drop in price really quick. Wouldn't be surprised to see it at $20 by August.
Just bought ZombiU. Going to take TWENTY ONE HOURS to download...I'm feeling something is wrong with my internet. Haven't been able to play Borderlands 2 very well recently (or at all) with friends online. The NBA 2k13 demo took over three hours to download and was only 1gb.
Probably time for a reset.
Maybe not...speedtest.net has me at 17.5Mb/s down and 3Mb/s up.
Maybe. I think we tend to overstate the impact of decisions like Ubi made in the case of Rayman. Everyone and their mother "hates" EA, Activision, Bobby Kotick, lots of people rag on Ubisoft's record for putting out crapware, etc., yet their big franchises sell like crazy.
If Rayman bombs, it's going to be because they decided to delay a finished product for a synchronous release on 3 platforms, 2 of which are 1) on their way out 2) having GTA V released within weeks of Rayman's launch
Considering that Origins didn't sell like gangbusters, having it compete with GTA is going to be much more of a blow than fan scorn.
