I wonder if it's because the game had a female protagonist. and I'm not just saying this because it's Ubisoft.
It feels like an industry wide issue that publishers think male gamers can't/won't relate to a female protagonist.


tomb raider?


Not saying there are no examples, but most publishers seem to have something against the idea. The guys behind Remember Me completed their game and were dropped by their publisher because they refused to make the protagonist male. Took them months to find one that didn't care.

I hope it's better than the first and the final boss doesn't flip the controls on you mid-way through the fight.


I never have a problem with left/right foward/back inversion. I soon adapt to it. Can't adapt to uninverted Y axis though.

Hasn't this been proven in studies though? I swear I read some article a while ago that said except for a few exceptions, games with female protagonists consistently sell less then games with male protagonists. So it isn't really a sexism thing so much as the usual money grubbing executive thing where anything that doesn't make tons of money is ignored.

Focus testing doesn't often tell you everything you need to know.

You ask a focus group what their favourite coffee is and you normally get the answer "Rich dark roast". But in the coffee shop they order the same milky latte they always order.

I disliked the first one. Besides, I am not interested in Ubisoft games anymore.

The camera better be inverted. Or else.


^ This. After making you relearn the joysticks for a single game, they pull that garbage in the last fight and hopelessly confuse your fingers. What an unbelievably bad end to a good game.
