ND's too late, Resident Evil 6 comes out tomorrow, followed by Assassin's Creed 3 later in the month. There's also a mix of other games coming out in between those two. Whatever game its gonna little the already small player pool for UC3.
Played the RE6 demo at my friends place, it was horrible so I actually cancelled my pre order for it. Another then that you're right, the amount of great games that are coming out in the following months (and in 2013, by far the best games) my u3 time would decrease a lot. Ill still play it here and there but gaming launches are not as dry as before.
RE6 = Ghost Recon - and I hated Ghost Recon.
Most people say they're buying the game for Leon's campaign, that just isn't worth $60 bucks to me...
OFF TOPIC: Interesting. I said the same thing about RE6, and then I figured out how to play it. Once you have character control, it has a silly, fun feeling to it, you can goof off to epic proportions, and it's Co-op heavy. Not as difficult and serious as UC3's Co-op, but still, something new unitl AC3 arrives. Very "Arcade" like in it's presentaion and playability. Plus, there's a ton of stuff to do and unlock.
ON TOPIC: I'm not sure that Patch 1.15 matters at this time. After the bubble bust on final ranking to Legacy 5, there's not much to do in the UC3 universe. Really sad that the title will not have the life span of UC2. Oh well. At least NDI cashed in. That will either lead to more resources for more improvements, or more ego for a more unpolished version of titles. Time will tell. I will be intersested to see how things play out from here forward.
