  1. Nintendo Second-Lieutenant

    I’ve always pronounced it “you-be-soft”. It’s really weird hearing the article pronounce it “oobisoft”. Not like it’s that different anyway. Wanna release a Tetris game? Better include lots of modes!

      1. Yes, I have heard considering highest selling game on the console is Zombi U, but that is off topic. Tetris is easy money on the Wii U and it will sell through the whole life of the console.

      2. Except this isn’t “mature” and fits well with Wii U since it doesn’t have a new Tetris yet but they’re still fucking stupid to port it to the 3Ds when it already has one plus play two other DS Tetris games on top of that and releasing it in the same month as ORAS which is where the money for a new 3DS game is going to? Fuck Ubishit.

            1. Ubisoft has made a lot of mistakes that I might never forget, first on PC, then still on PC, then some more on PC, then on Wii U, and then again on PC, and this being right there at the bottom of my list.

              1. They’re kissing Sony/M$ ass for profit. They don’t care about long term satisfaction of gamers anymore which brings more success sustainability in the future. Let them destroy themselves exactly how Capcom, THQ and Atari did.

    1. lmfao! haha best thing i’ve heard all day! Ubisoft games should be in the $5 bins at walmart and even then i wouldn’t buy them. XD

  2. Wait… Who the heck owns Tetris? I thought Nintendo did, then I saw some EA Tetris games, then the Tetris theme re-appeared in ssb4, and now Ubisoft is making a new Tetris game?

    1. Tetris is actually owned by “tetris” it is its own company. They license their game to different publishers to create the next best tetris game.

  3. Remember Ubisoft said that they’d only release family friendly games on Wii U… yeah they lied about that like they did with the whole resolution bullshit.. Fuck Ubisoft.. they make Activision and EA look good… and that’s fucking hard to do.

    1. You lost me at “makes EA look good”. Um, no. They’re exactly as bad as them. Activision actually has a better heart for Wii U than both of these jackasses combined but they still suck like them lying about DLCs.

  4. AAAAAND nobody gives a fuck. 1. 3DS already has a Tetris game for $10 plus with it being DS compatible, it plays two more Tetris games (DS & Party) so WTF is this game needed for? Oh, a stupid as excuse to show they Ubishit “still cares” about Nintendo which they haven’t made not one single decent game for years and that Rayman excuse, STFU with that because they screwed the Wii U and fans by delaying a completed port for other platforms that never cared anyway.

    1. What the fuck I just read Assassin’s Creed Rogue is coming to PC. O_o *slowly pulls out wallet* No! I can’t let them trick me anymore with their lies and promises! I am no sheep to follow along blindly!

        1. The Assassin’s Creed series is the only exception. I promise I won’t buy any other games. I swear! XD

            1. I haven’t actually bought any Ubi games before. I only played Far Cry 2 because it was someone else’s copy and I played AC1 and 3 for free. I didn’t really care about Ubisoft until after I saw AC3 on Wii U. (Because back at the time I was being sorta a Wii U fanboy and I didn’t give a shit about PS and Xbox lol) I actually skipped AC3 and instead went for Sonic Racing at Wii U’s launch. I didn’t end up getting 3 until just this summer and I got it for free. I plan on making AC Unity my first Ubisoft game I buy. I don’t like how they are treating Wii U owners at all but I never planned on getting a PC just for their games. I’ve heard their ports are terrible and most of the PC gamers hate what they’re doing. Including myself. I’ve been reading all about PC’s for years now and I know everything about the settings I need to play. And even I can tell you personally that Watch Dogs is poorly optimized as shit. Lol. But hey, they scammed a lot of sheep with that one. Over 8 million sales in only a few months. They thought it was gonna be like the demo only to find out it was downgraded to hell. That made me so disappointed that I don’t think I even want it anymore. I started finding out about the Ubisoft downgrades just recently. After I beat AC3 I watched a few trailers of it and said “Hm.. What did they show to get people to buy it?” And what do you know? The demo looked way better than the game just like Watch Dogs. For example, in the demo, they start playing as Connor with 11 rope darts and 25 rounds of ammo for his gun. In the actual game, you can only carry up to 5 rope darts and 8 rounds of ammo. What in the fuck? Lol. I didn’t know about it till after I beat AC3 but I got it free anyways so they didn’t scam me. LMAO. I’m keeping a close eye on these AC Unity trailers and patiently waiting some gameplay to see if they pull this bait again. I also didn’t buy Rayman Legends because of that LONG ASS DELAY. That was a huge disappointment and a slap to the face for Wii U owners. When it eventually came out, I skipped it and got 3D World instead. Nintendo deserved my money more. And I haven’t regretted my purchase at all. :3

              1. See what I mean? Ubisoft is a sly motherfucker showing false promises of their games and then gimp them for any platform for overhype sales. They’re coming worst than EA at this point.

                1. Yep. Nobody can trust them anymore. They lied about supporting Wii U, they pissed off PC gamers by giving them shoddy console ports, and they lied to console gamers by showing them fake gameplay and graphics (WD PS4 gameplay) that they will never have. Ubisoft only care about money at this point. They wanna make a quick buck. But hey, it’s working. Just like EA. Oh man, if EA, Ubisoft, and Microsoft had teamed up, the universe is fucking doomed. You have to pay to even look at the game cases on display and extra $5 to pick it up. XD

  6. It needs to have the feel, physics and music of the original GB game (except it has to have a button to make a piece drop at once), no more endless spinning (DS), no more pieces stuck at the top a short moment before falling down (PS3). It needs an online mode as good as DS game but without the absurd spin attack. It needs extra modes from PS3 and Party Deluxe. How hard can it be?
