  4. Yeah, it's good, isn't it? A lot of people didn't like it because it wasn't "Assassin's Creed" enough... too much pirate stuff. But considering they never advertised it as another romp through Italy, and it's not like they hid how much sea-based content there was, I don't think that's a fair critique. It has a few issues here and there, but it was a very good game, in my opinion. Maybe not my favorite in the series, but it does rank above Revelations and AC2, in my opinion.

  5. Black Flag is my new favorite Assassin's Creed game.

  6. Anal Assault bro.

  7. My Little Pony?

  9. Yeah. Except for those times where you're playing Deathmatch/Wanted and you're about to score that 2000 point kill, only to have some douche sprint at you from behind and shank your ass for 50 points. Or you happen to turn around and stun him, but now your target knows you're there and they stun you. Or those times when you're playing Manhunt and you're about to score that 2000 point kill and some douchebag on your team sprints up and shanks your target for 100 points. Yup... AC multiplayer is just fan-friggin'-tastic...
  10. Bit of a spoiler... When you hack the CCO's computer in the modern setting, if you read the entire selection of emails, it basically seems to be Ubi's thoughts on what the next titles in the series could be. The locations discussed the most in these pseudo-emails seem to be Egypt, India, and Japan. There's also a mention of "keeping the action high" and trying to "stick to what sells" mentioning Pirates, Ninjas, and Zombies. A reply to that comment is something along the lines of "Pirates and Ninjas can be done, but aren't zombies a little ahistorical?". They also discuss why a full game set in modern in a modern setting would be a bad idea, and it's basically along the lines of "we don't want to spend time creating new gameplay elements and updating the engine to allow you to drive vehicles/tanks/helicopters/etc..." which makes sense to me. They already broke the mold enough with the ships in AC3/4... they don't need to turn it into GTA. In my opinion, I would like them to go the "Ninjas" route and take the series to Japan the most. There are so many great tools that Ninjas had available to them that they could really have a lot of unique ways of assassinating people. The only problem with this seems to be the fact that for the most part, Ninjas relied on stealth more than anything. Unfortunately, Ubisoft seems to be more concerned with including as much action as they can possibly cram into their games at this point, and seem to be abandoning stealth almost entirely. I would love to have a new Assassin's Creed with more stealth mechanics, but I don't see it happening anytime soon. Especially not with this current annual release schedule they seem to be cashing in on. That being said, I disagree with the people in this thread who are saying AC4 is a bad game. In spite of Edward not really feeling like an Assassin, this is probably my favorite AC since Brotherhood. Maybe because they merged enough Pirates of the Caribbean with Assassin's Creed for me, but I loved it. I don't mind when they take a few steps away from the usual in a series of games. If every release was the same as Assassin's Creed 2, it would get old pretty fast. When you're creating new assassins to run around and stab people as, they can't all be the same.
  11. I didn't really like the naval aspect of AC3 either. In fact, I didn't care for that much of AC3. The frontier was too large with too little to do, and the story was kind of boring. I also didn't like Connor much at all. Dude was a bit of a dick. It's kind of sad that I liked a templar more than the "good guy". Haytham was a badass.

     

    But in AC4, the entire game is basically one big open world map. There are a few "cities" like Havana and Nassau, which allow for the traditional series gameplay, and there are still churches and stuff to climb. The high points on the lesser islands are usually done by climbing trees or the broken masts of ships.

     

    And yes, there is whaling. You get in a little whaling boat and throw harpoons at whales and sharks. Actually, it's kind of awesome. Moby Dick (because seriously, let's call it what it is...) is the toughest whale in the game.

  12. I never really got into Assassin's Creed 3, so the naval stuff didn't sink in with me very well. Also, the fact that there isn't anything "tall" in the Caribbean, makes me wonder how they handle the eagle points or whatever they're called.

     

    Also, whales? The white whale, apparently.

  13. Yeah man, the game is pretty damn gorgeous. It's my favorite AC since Brotherhood (even though the climbing is still sloppy like it was in AC3). I love all of the other improvements they made though. It's also friggin' MASSIVE. I've played it for over 30 hours and last I saw, I was 75% complete. :/

  14. I saw my roommate play Black Flag for a bit. I thought the previous games in the AC series were pretty. They really nailed the look of the Caribbean. It looks so pretty.
