Nothing is Working, Everything is Broken

ey everyone, I’m sure you’re all slightly confused as I have no doubt that you’ve already read the title of this feature post, and what it naturally suggests, and that’s understandable. Which is why that I have decided to begin with a disclaimer what I’m trying to accomplish in this peculiar admission of mine, and some important bits of clarification that are real crucial to the meaning behind it.

I have spent weeks trying to write a fair, and objective review of Assassin’s Creed Unity to be published on Press Pause Radio, and have now reached a point where I no longer feel comfortable with the idea of doing so.

After giving it a considerable amount of contemplation and consultation among other members of the crew, I’ve reached the decision that this game is just too broken for me to just grade on a scale of the scale of quality that we typically adhere to.

In other words, the amount of shit that’s unabashedly broken and fucked in Assassin’s Creed Unity his hit a point with me, one where it is beyond any redemption or worthwhile attempt at to plodding through the unbridled mess that is, regardless of any merit that could be mined out of the content’s intent alone.

PPR 91

lack Friday be damned, Press Pause Radio comes back with a force before we prepare for the Golden Zonkies, and it’s a bit of a doozy. It’s one thing when life imitates art but the surrealist freedom and wacky liberties of video games allow us to escape all the nonsense and frustration that life has to offer; which is why it’s super poopy when video games are broken by design, to the extent to where they’re almost unplayable.

Sure the occasional bug or glitch can be fun little exploit that’s great for a distraction but the last couple weeks of releases have shown us just how dark this rat race to production has been for some of the year’s most  anticipated titles.

Join us as we talk about Super Smash Bros, Assassin’s Creed Unity and Rogue, Master Chief Collection, Christian Mingle: the Movie, Black Friday, Legend of Korra, Sonic Boom, Fake viral marketing, The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth, Destiny, a potential second coming of the video game crash, tomato trucks, and more!
