    The thing with female characters in Assassin's Creed is really simple. If you make a guy, nobody cares how he looks, just give him whatever hair, whatever eyes, whatever beard and it's done. With female there is this whole thing with body stereotype, people getting angry about sexism and such. It's really more of an PR play than other with no-female playable character. If you can avoid shitstorm, you will avoid it as long as possible, because it's easier to listen questions "when you will make female character" than "your female character is stereotypical and sexist! this game is sexist! let's ban this game from Y and Z country!".

    I really liked this episode of The Patch, I thought Meg was a great addition and there was a nice dynamic to their conversation this week

    I liked Meg's addition to the patch this week and I appreciate Gus trying to shift down the list and cover all the news of E3 in an hour, though the one thing I keep finding myself nitpicking a bit over is that Nintendo seemed to get the shaft in the discussion. I understand that RT in general has a bit of a bias towards Microsoft and Sony, and have never really talked much about Nintendo, but I think if they had put on Kerry or someone else in the company who could have provided a more informed discussion on what all Nintendo had shown if could have been a more rounded discussion.

      I think he did a great job (after months of instantly killing any Nintendo conversation he was involved with smiley6.gif ). When you boil it down Nintendo still doesn't have much real third party support, so there's just less total news. Nintendo had one show, while MS and Sony each had three (MS, Ubisoft, EA, and Sony, Ubisoft, EA). If anything sticking to the one hour limit is more to blame. There's no way they could have covered everything, but news isn't always there so they'll probably be talking more in depth in the coming weeks about E3.

    Im suddenly disappointed in the co-op for ACunity now. I assumed whoever was hosting the game would be the person who got Arno and the others had to choose their co-op character. To me it feels like it takes away the co-op experience I felt when I played games like Borderlands with my friends- where we are all different individuals with different stats.

    (And for those who are like "But liberation had a female character!" It just isnt the same. The game was made to be a filler so ubisoft had a game on the Vita. Except whoever they let develop it didnt make the game into a bad watered down version of Assassins creed III's storyline(like the DS and Ipod versions) but turned it into a unique game near the same timeline. All of the friends I have who play AC did not buy the game because it was on the vita- they bought it because of the character, because it was a female and because she was different. Ubisoft probably never expected for people to enjoy it and because people DID buy it they ported it. If it was like the previous filler AC games it would still be on the vita.
    And while their excuse now is kinda icky and as I said before, disappointing to me, they had a base for a female character from Liberty,III, and Black Flag that it, as the one former animator had said, would have been easy to put in. )

    It was a bit weird seeing Meg in the same shot as Gus and Ryan having seen her on Sourcefed for so long. But she didn't seem out of place at all and they all gelled really well, I personally hope she's back on more often.

    WOW! I was *really* skeptical at first...but Meg is ABSOLUTELY KICK-ASS(!) on this podcast!

    I think I might actually like her on the podcast more than Burnie... I love how Ryan has become a mainstay on The Patch; he is one of the most articulate, knowledgeable people at RT because of his extensive PC/animation background (maybe it's the PC Master Race member in me...). Ryan, Gus, Meg, and Ashley all are very well-spoken, energetic, entertaining, and informed so I really hope they'll keep this roster as the permanent one! smiley0.gif

    I've never missed a single episode of the patch but just the fact alone that meg is on this episode makes me think twice, I just can't stand her, there's just something about her I just dislike, so much so that I'm double thinking even watching this episode.

      What you're saying makes no sense, I just don't like her, and her personality, especially the way she carries herself.

    I'm glad to finally see Meg talk without scripting. She seems to know a lot about the industry, and she pretty much stays on par with Gus and Ryan on all talking points. I hope she gets some more time on The Patch, and I'd love to see her on the Podcast to get her talking about her journey to RT.

    Also, Assassin's Creed III: Liberation had a female protagonist, but I understand why they didn't know that because it didn't get much press and honestly, it was sub-par for an AC game.

    Completely psyched about the new Zelda title. LOOONG overdue. Sad that there hasn't been a new Metroid title for it, though. The new Zelda alone will push me into getting a Wii U.

    It seems like Nintendo may be pulling back on their efforts to focus on the North American market overall, aside from the 3DS. The Wii had fantastic sales, and they did what they could to have a good library for it, but they lost steam. With the XBO and PS4 having motion (and voice) controls and cute little representative avatars, they more or less stole the thunder that made the Wii unique.

    With the lack of aggressive marketing of the Wii U (coupled with the poor choice in console name, leading to internal brand confusion, like people not realizing it is a new console) and a comparatively weak starting library (lacking a new Zelda/Metroid/Smash bros/unique new Mario game), Nintendo really needs to nail down their next console launch here in North America, or have some major new blockbuster IP revitalize interest in the Wii U.

    Growing up on Nintendo since back in the mid-80s, it is kind of sad that they are no longer the "go-to" company. I hope they pull themselves out of this rut, because I believe they are too stubborn of a company to do what Sega did, which is cut their losses and become a software company instead of hardware and software, and they would likely never license their IPs for use on other consoles.

    30+ years of great memories, only to slowly dwindle out. smiley2.gif

    Gus, Ashley and Ryan are definitely the best trio for the patch. They have the best combination of news, humour and cohesion. Hopefully Meg will stick to The Know and The Patch can just switch it up with Burnie every now and again.

    Meg's comments about the [email protected] service really glossed over why indie devs don't feel "loved" by Microsoft. The big things were taking 30-60% of the profits (Microsoft now only takes 30%), charging retail price for bulk dev kit sales, not giving assistance, making and changing deadlines, and changing release dates. So it's not about Microsoft saying "we care about indies" but more about them not having policies and practices in place that routinely screw over or take large chunks of money from indie devs. Many of these policies they've changed over the past few years to match Sony's policies, but most indie devs still have a bitter taste in their mouth from Microsoft and only develop for Xbox because it's what their engineers are familiar with.

    Also, I'm miffed with how readily she brought up and then attempted to pass over the "no ovaries" thing. However, in response to her suggestions that they "just render some boobs", she is completely wrong. Yes, the simplest thing they could've done is made a female model with some new textures and skinning. However, this would look bad because she'd have to be the same proportions as the male character and she'd have to use the same animations as the male character. Otherwise, if you actually wanted to make a unique female character that is proportioned and moves like a female, you'd have to do a whole new animation set as well, new ragdolls for the physics, possibly some IK stuff for the hands and feet, and then QA for all of that. In short, yes, it costs more than just "rendering some boobs". Although I completely agree with her about how the AC team could've been better at explaining this to the press.

    In the meantime, if people want to play as a female assassin try Assassin's Creed: Liberation.

    To answer Ryan's question about land-space combat there were two other games. Starhawk tried to do something like that and Dark Void had a drop of that as well. However, No Man's Sky looks to take all of that to a whole new level.

    Not solely because of the reasons above, but I'm hoping that Meg's future appearances are better. I'm reserving judgment, but so far she seems like another Ashley and suffers the same faults - too bubbly, not funny, and too ignorant on the industry as a whole and video game development. Again, hoping future appearances are better since this first one left something to be desired.

      I believe you are reading in a tone that isn't there. A statement like, "In the meantime, if people want to play as a female assassin try Assassin's Creed: Liberation" or "Although I completely agree with her about how the AC team could've been better at explaining this to the press" does not come off as combative or negative to me, but to each their own.

      If you liked Meg, so be it. I also am reserving judgment until more appearances have been made. The things I commented on were just minor quibbles, simple mistakes that I'll readily chalk up to first week jitters. In fact, almost nothing I wrote was decrying her in any fashion, because I mostly wrote corrections rather than antagonizing statements about her. This is also why I'm confused by your phrase "worked up" because the stuff I pointed out was minor, was barely commented on rather than corrected, and when it was directly addressed it was done so using very tame language. However, I do believe that she needs to work on some things, which I pointed out in my last paragraph.

      Let me make this clear, I want her to succeed and for me to like her, but in order for that to happen, some slight changes need to be made.

      "Plus you wrote a hecka-lot. It's a real chore to read through somethin like this, which is why essay-comments will always be downvoted—even if they make good points. Just displeasing to the eyes."
      I stopped caring about this years ago. I'm sorry, people of the internet, but sometimes you need more than 140 characters and I don't care about placating your illiteracy. What I wrote isn't that long nor should the language be difficult to digest, so if you're complaining about this then I guess you never read books, textbooks, news articles, etc... because all of those tend to be longer than my comment. Also, people only TL;DR text they dislike or disagree with, but if they like or agree with something then they'll read through hundreds of pages.

      Don't get so worked up... I completely 100% agree with the first thing you said about Microsoft unfortunately losing indie devs through their myopic policies; it really stinks cause last generation they brought some of the best indie games ever to consoles while Sony was *years* behind them (Minecraft on PS3).

      The rest of the stuff I don't really agree with—your tone is just too combative and negative to really be worth addressing.

      I thought Meg was awesome, but it's her first outing on The Patch so she needs time to get into a groove. Not many people liked Ryan the first time he was in a Let's Play, and look at how things are now.

    I have an idea. Maybe for next year or when there are conventions like PAX and E3 and stuff.

    The Patch: special convention edition.
    It would just be the patch, but longer since there are a lot of news to cover. I felt that at the end they were kind of rushing through and they could've gone more in-depth about some of the news.

    I understand that their schedule might be full on the day they record the Patch and that it is a lot of work. I'm just saying, longer could be better for news heavy weeks.
