Normally I don't think this is a good thing, but ubisoft continuing to misunderstand the appeal of the franchise and the audience and trying to chase an audience that is already embedded in other games seems foolhardy
"what's popular today and how can we leverage it with our properties" assumes that people will just buy into an idea and the property even if there's no venn diagram
people who buy ghost recon games tend to like tactical co-op stealth action; ubisoft keeps trying to make something _different_ than that, from RPG progression (remember how badly that turned out?) to battle royale (which they just delayed indefinitely)

thinking about a game with a giant monster that has televisions embedded in its flesh. it keeps trying to walk over to you, destroying everything in its path, to show you advertisements
This is another one of those "too small to sustain an idea" games that I would love to make with a tiny team
It's too small to be commercial and make money enough to get me insulin and the rest of my team lunch

My treatment is going really well!!! I got the dishes done today, I got some groceries, and now I'm taking a walk!

I have to clean up the apartment though because my shower knob broke, and since I'm supposed to let me landlord do it I need to clean things up
I gotta take things slow but it's nice to actually be able to take a walk
I had enough energy to drive across town to get me meat Image

absolutely furious at Lost Odyssey right now, who the fuck designs a game like this? fuck this checkpointing
start game --> checking saves --> continue game --> select device (there's only one) --> checking saves again --> last saved game or load --> checking the current saved game --> checking saved games --> loading
you have to manually press buttons at several of these steps for some reason

"turn up new facts"

well, the facts are what they are, it's not as if there is an equal amount of facts favoring both the right and the left.

the reason there is no respected right-wing journalistic source is that right wing ideas don't stand up to scrutiny.
like most news sources that are respected tend to have some level of "we are trying to find the facts of this" (as opposed to "i need to be objective, and by objective, i mean neutral, and by neutral, i mean give equal weight to people who are wrong as people who are right")
if you start your platform as "a right wing source for--" you will never build respect because you're already tainting everything you do with your ideology. you aren't looking at the facts anymore, and the talking points you have will largely be bought and paid for.
