  1. Feel better bro. I'm battling this nasty upper respiratory virus, myself.

  2. The issue isnt that they stretch out the gameplay its the core gameplay that just lacks there is 2 activities to do thats it. With in my 8h free trial I got the best ship in the game and its fully decked out it wasnt hard or anything however there is just nothing to do after that.

  3. Man this game looks shit. Why would i pay 70 to play sailing simulator? I havent really seen pirates fighting on land, or fishing, or swimming, or literally anything on gameplay but sailing and spamming cannonballs made of paper at enemy ships.

  4. I just copped an Xbox series x. Anyone know any good games that’s actually worth playing?

  5. I didnt like it at first, but it grew on me. Is it the best, absolutely not. Is it the worst, absolutely not. It's in that weird middle area. You either like it or you don't. Once I started upgrading my ship, the more I enjoyed it…a little. The harvesting part of the game is a joke, but oh well. I will continue to play it since I did spend $100 on it…

  6. The game sucks, but combat is somewhat fun.
    Its super broken on PS5 tho. To the point where you get stuck in menus, or cant move character after entering/exiting menus, quest markers disappearing on map, etc etc
    The quests suck… Steal nutmeg from dutch ships and bring it to any dutch port…. Go try figure it out why…

  7. He said a lot of negative points but not the game actually "looks bad" 😂

  8. Between this and Suicide Squad, 2024 already has 2 worst game of the year contenders and it is still only February.

  9. I have not played AC Black Flag but I played a lot of AC Odyssey and I think the ship to ship combat and boarding is vastly better in Odyssey than Skull & Bones.

  10. Ubisoft. Duh.
    They no longer make games. They make stores with graphics

  11. I was such a huge fan of black flag so I had to check it out despite bad reviews. The game is so insanely bad that it's mind boggling.. After 2 hours I just deleted it.

  12. I'm expecting all new games to be shit .

  13. People who keep paying full price for mediocrity will never receive a good product afterwards.

  14. The fact that this game was in development for over 11 years, just to turn out to be this lazy, boring, bubbling pile of shit, is just sad and pathetic. What an absolute failure this game is.


  16. A game built on a game from over 10 years ago, with not even half of the features.

    There’s no reason this should’ve been the case.

    There’s no excuse for this bs game

  17. Welp. Back yo ho ho and back to sea of thieves we go

  18. Yall hate the game at lunch, then love it after a few months or a year after😂😂

  19. What a perfect time for Sea of thieves to come to Playstation

  20. Why is it so hard to make a good/fun Pirate RPG???

  21. Your hand motions are my favorite lol

  22. they tried to make this game as good as possible……gtfoh

  23. I feel really bad for man. You had to play 12 hours of a video game, talk about it and get paid for it. Poor you man!! 😂

  24. Wind Waker was my favorite pirate game ever and it came out on the Nintendo Game Cube

  25. The problem is that everyone is still buying the game just to see how bad it is and Ubisoft still gets paid so they will just keep making crap games

  26. This game is a huge scam!!! Both PS and Ubisoft will not give you a refund. DO NOT BUY!!!

  27. Very depressing, had much higher hopes

  28. Personally i redownloaded black flag again. Soooo glad i didn't fall for this cash grab. I might buy it when its 10 or 20 dollars but not 70.

  29. I knew that this game would get massive amounts of hate for almost no reason. If you are complaining about the naval combat not being diverse enough, then you clearly don’t understand how the game works. The diversity in combat is made by the player. Sure you can spam the same attack constantly, but you can’t do that and then complain about combat diversity

  30. Brother God Bless you for helping me save $99 on the ultimate. So, brothers and sisters in this comment section- if I want to play a cool pirate game, should I just go back to AC Black Flag?

  31. Starting after a shipwreck should have transitioned into hours of Sword Play

  32. i was looking forward to this as much as Diablo 4. bought D4 and got bored after the campaign; this looks like a D4 fail – over hyped, under tested and overpriced; i'll wait for black flag 2

  33. This game is in the Assassin's game engine. The way your character runs is exactly like Ezio or Kenway. The scaling of the map and the assets are all assassins creed. Sailing the coast of africa is reminiscent of black flag, origins and odyssey but it's dated. This is a reskin with less features and gameplay options. Just seeing the character movement reminds me why unity was a failure and I can understand why they didn't implement ground combat. I'm sure when they tried they found out it was terrible. If the character model and design was the one from odyssey and Origins they absolutely could have made it work. We're going to have to push them to finish this game on live service. It's half a game. The sailing and combat are what you would need from a game like this. If that part sucked there would be no game. Also they use quick time events to gather which is just so fuckin dated. The best part of the game besides playing ship combat with others is the setting. It's ubisoft, its "assassins creed", its historically accurate to a degree. It has real trading companies that were contracted with the east Indian Company and we are literally in the east indies and the coast of Africa. They did a great part on the setting and ship combat. But until they finish this game It's 1 star. I want people to read this and know what they're getting into. The half a game is fun. But it has so much potential to be more. But for now it's No Mans Sea.

  34. I can't watch your video because of the white trash that's on your mic. See that little white spot on your mic? It's driving me crazy and I'm leaving now. Hope the review was good 🙂

  35. There is so much incorrect information and flat out lies in this "review " lmao.

  36. Please do a comparison between assassin's creed pirates (2013) mobile vs skull and bones … Let's see which has more features 😂😂😂

  37. This game is such a failure. You can’t even man the cannons or fight hand to hand. I wanted so much more and not just naval combat.. sea of thieves is way better unfortunately

  38. So is sea of thieves still the best pirate game
