What Prince of Persia remake would you prefer? Sands of Time or giving PoP 2008 a second chance/sequel? 

Connor Ewing (@connoerewing)

I’m personally having trouble with being excited for any of Ubisoft’s upcoming titles (even Immortals, which I’ve been anticipating) given their consistent mishandling of the systemic workplace abuse/toxicity situation. Is this something you guys are feeling as well? Thanks!
