Thoughts on: Assassins Creed Unity

Taking a turn for the revolution in Paris, France. The next edition to the assassins creed franchise allows you start start young with a, I could be wrong, 3 mission introduction which I thought was very pleasing. I look forward to playing through the games missions.

I’m a fan of Les Mis so walking the streets whilst the riots build allow for a real feel of that time. The naturally beautiful game allowing a scenic view to make the climbs to the highest points worth it.

I, personally, have not come across any bugs so far however a friend on PS4 has had many error codes pop up causing missions to not save and a need to restart the game a common occurrence. Along with this I gave the coop with him and again his luck was down with the inability to kill any enemies therefore leaving him almost useless to the co op mission.

As for the Xbox one well my brother recently got an Xbox one and well to put it simply he has to reinstall the game after EVERY mission and this can take hours… Not a good start for that console it seems.

So overall I’ve only touched the surface and there’s a lot more to delve into but as any other assassins creed the game will no doubt be shared and passed round before taking its place on the shelf. There’s plenty of games to play and I’m in no rush.

PlayStation 4: Potential Heating Risk

Aside from trying to figure out how to title this to make sense to myself as well as you there has been something on my mind.

If you did not know already I own the PlayStation 4. Purchasing it on launch day I had no real expectations of what this system could do other than play next gen titles, share, blu ray and a few other things. The console system itself has achieved those with ease. I am fortunate enough to have no intitial problems with my console unlike some stories circling the internet.

From day 1 I have noticed a potential issue for owners of the  PlayStation 4. The air circulation at the back of the console. I have my console placed in a fairly open location aside from a few wires. (Image below of ‘set up’)Image

As you can see the space behind the console is plenty enough room for the air to circulate – I realise some may say the heat may bounce back but that is not it. The immediate area behind the console heats up like a warm tea. 

…So aside from pointing out my set up and talking about the heat what this is addressing is the fact ENCLOSED AREAS are NOT ideal for keeping this console on. Thats a NO to:

  • TV storage unit
  • Shelving Units
  • Cluttered areas
  • stuff near the console

and probably many more. Just go careful when using your console is my advice.
