View Full Version : Why Ubi Soft will get all my gaming money for 2 years

Sometimes Ubi Soft customer service is less than stellar, but let's face it, they make the best PC games out there. My dollars are already set aside for PF, then Ghost Recon II, and then BOB. I can't think of anything else on the horizon I am interested in and frankly I think these 3 games will keep me occupied at least until the end of 2005.

If I have any other gaming money it will all be dedicated to making my system run these games better. I hate to ***** myself to one company so much, but nobody is coming close when it comes to piquing my interest.

Brothers in Arms?

Anyway, it's nonsense: there are other publisher out there, and they all are the same.

I lose count of the games I'd like from many-a-publisher. For some reason I always lose count after 9.

Now how does mentioning Splinter Cell 3 help me?

There are other publishers out there but by an large they are not making games I am interested in. I wish there were more WWII flight sims being developed by other publishers because competition is good. If MS doesn't make a CFS4 I will be disappointed because I was actually hoping they might try to atone for CFS3. Its doubtful though.

Frankly I think AEP and Lock On will keep me busy until PF comes out. From PF I will probably transition to GR2, and from there hopefully BOB. I try to focus on one game at a time and limit my play time so that is really about all the games I will need for quite awhile.

Lets all reflect on the great things Ubi has done for us all. Have some of this kool-aid brother.

Specs:
More expensive than the dining set.
Less expensive than the couch.
Smaller than the dishwasher.
Just as noisy as the refridgerator.
Faster than the cars' computer.
Less practical than the car.
Face it, people who put thier computer specs in thier signature are pretty ****ing wierd.

ive been looking at splinter cell 3, and it looks great. I wonder how it will compare to half-life 2 and doom 3. They say it will have the best graphics of this generation of games. you can see a video showing splinter cell 3 here

Whoever handles their projects/funding and development prospects is a god at their job. Really amazing.

Whoever handles after-sales aspects of their titles probably needs to be taken out and shot.
