  1. Farcry 5 is coming soon. I personally am not really interested in the game because I've been to PAX last year and see it in action, and it's pretty much just Farcry 3 all over again but mixed in with Farcry 2's buddy mechanic, with new vehicles like being able to use a plane this time, being able to get animals to fight alongside you like Primal and the game taking place in Montana USA with all the bears and other wildlifes trying to kill you. And fishing.... because FFXV does fishing and now other games decided to do it too. Just look at the first hour of this game. I'm having Farcry 3 flashbacks from it! So this game's pretty much the next Farcry 3 expansion pack then. Farcry 3.85? If that's the case then I'll buy the game when it's discounted. What I am interested about this game though is whether or not we'll get to see the Apple of Eden from Assassin's Creed in this game. Because the main villain who I like to call CM Punk with glasses is definitely a cult leader, which is fitting because one time CM Punk actually created the Straight Edge Society cult, but knowing that Farcry, Watch Dogs and Assassin's Creed takes place in the same universe, he definitely has come across the Apple of Eden. Like perhaps before he's a cult leader, he's just a normal guy with the rest of his family, but one day he stumbled upon some Abstergo cargo that's blown up and he found the Apple of Eden, and then got a glimpse of the future & decided to become what he becomes in a misguided attempt to help out. I say yes, we will definitely see it in this game and we'll finally have an official link to Assassin's Creed. PS. I know I know, this is only interesting for people who like Assassin's Creed's modern day story arc which I'm pretty sure a lot of people hated. And upon seeing the game on youtube since I'm not buying this game, what I found is listed bellow. Long story short: FUCK THIS GAME. Don't buy this game because the endings makes every single thing you did before up to that point completely fucking pointless. There. I just saved you people who read this $60. Buy Ni No Kuni 2 instead!

  3. NOTICE: Ok, so this is the final "what is your favorite (insert franchise)" post I'll make, so just a warning. So to end the trilogy, Which started with Grand theft auto and fallout as the franchises I picked for the post theme, I'll talk about what is your favorite Assassin's creed game? Ok? Good. so we all know assassin's creed. It's one of Ubisoft's best selling franchise and one of the best franchise in gaming right now. But there is many games in the franchise. I ask, one more time, what is your favorite game in this franchise. Leave your opinion down below.
  4. So most people who have been following Xbox One's backwards compatibility title knows that Assassin's Creed is finally BC! I was very excited to get an opportunity to go back through these titles one by one beginning with the original. I placed the disk into the game and it downloaded like normal but after playing a short time, the game crashed. I reloaded from the last check point and it again crashed at the same spot. Thinking there was a problem with the download, I exited and checked my achievements tab out of habit and I saw something very strange. There are 2 separate Assassin's Creeds downloaded to my profile, one is the typical green and white Xbox 360 logo along the left side of the game image while the other contained a grey platinum hits logo across the top. This is a profile that has never played an Assassins Creed game up until this point and I do not even own the Platinum Hits version of the game. As you can see from the attached image, one shows progress out of 1000G while the other says 0G/0G. The game keeps crashing at the same point in time (when obtaining a flag in Masyaf on the NE side). I called Microsoft and they said to delete the profile and re-download it and also to delete the install of the game and reinstall that also. As you can imagine, that did absolutely nothing but waste my time and patience. I know that the emulator that is used in backwards compatibility does not download from the disc and only uses the disc for the licenses. The game that says 0G does not show up on my friends view when they look at my profile but is on my screen. I told Microsoft and they then classify it as an unknown issue and I am currently waiting for someone "with more information" to contact me at a later time. I am posting this here to see if anyone has experienced this with any of their backwards compatible titles or is this truly just a freak incident? Any information would be appreciated and for the time being I am reinstalling Assassin's Creed for the 3rd time so I can play it.
  5. Assassins Creed Unity has been confirmed for the PC, PS4 and Xbox One in Winter 2014. It will be set in France during the French Revolution (Which lasted from 1789 to 1799). Ubisoft said they have been working on the new Assassins Creed game for over three years now and want to give a true next generation AC game. Ubisoft have also announced two demos have been prepared for E3. Single Player Campaign and a 4 Person Coop Campaign. They also said that Coop won't be like in previous games, it will have it's own campaign. Am really excited to see what is revealed at E3 2014. AC IV: BF improved nearly every complaint I had about Assassins Creed III so I think the series is going to improve again in Unity. _______________________________________________________________________________________________________________ I love the Assassins Creed games, have been playing them since Assassins Creed II and am really excited to see where the series goes after where Assassins Creed IV: Black Flag left it. Assassins Creed IV: Black Flag is definitely my favourite in the series, it looks beautiful and there is so much do to in the amazing looking open world. The game added a lot of new combat features/weapons that make it look great, especially how Edward used the environment in combat. The story was amazing in both Present day and during The Golden Age of Piracy. The story telling was done really well and the present day was great as an introduction so I'd love to see more happen in present day in Unity. A lot of people say Assassins Creed II is the best, the rooftops and narrow crowed streets were repetitive seeing them over again. I did love the story, side missions and a lot about the game and it's my second favourite but there are a lot of features not in this game and the combat isn't very great. The only weapons Ezio had were Double Hidden Blade, Sword, Throwing Knifes and Hidden pistol. ______________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Check out the teaser for AC: Unity here: Sources: http://gamerant.com/assassins-creed-unity-4-player-coop/ https://twitter.com/shinobi602/statuses/457327029198000128 https://twitter.com/shinobi602/statuses/457327902636642304
  6. Okay so a few weeks ago I finally got a PS4 and EB Games (Which is GameSpot in Australia, just a different name, same deal with Burger King) Was doing a bundle deal where for an extra $50 you got the PS4 Assassin's Creed Black Flag, NBA 14, Watch Dogs and 1 free month subscription to Foxtel (an Australian cable TV service). Since that's easily $300 worth of value and I really wanted to play Black Flag I went for it, I was even able to sell NBA and the Foxtel subscription. But I'm here to talk about Watch Dogs. I never had any interest in Watch Dogs. At all. I saw nothing interesting or very original at all about this game, and while 90% of the gaming world were rubbing their nipples in anticipation I was just sitting back and wondering how ridiculous AAA gaming hype has gotten. Okay so we all know about how Watch Dogs got a massive visual downgrade, yet despite all of this many people continue to claim that the game is still great. I hate to be the bad guy, but no. No it's not. I'm sorry, I just didn't see anything in this game that was better than average. I could spend all day bitching about everything I didn't like but I've got bigger fish to fry in this thread, so here's the biggest, main reason I didn't like Watch Dogs; It's too easy. And I don't mean that the combat is easy or what not, because this is one of THOSE games where they expect you to use stealth for everything and have made combat as hard as possible to stop you from charging in and killing everything (just like Deus Ex HR). But everything, EVERYTHING, is handed to you on a silver platter. Money is easily hacked from people walking on the streets, and there's no penalty for stealing thousands of dollars from innocent people, and a few upgrades later you'll automatically be notified when you're within range of someone who's got tons of money that's ripe for the taking. But the second mission, THE SECOND MISSION, I had bought every gun in the game, and nothing was a challenge because I was running around with two kinds of grenade launcher and machine guns up the wazoo. Not that I needed to because the only things of use that money buys are guns and cars, and the enemies drop all the guns you'll ever need. But it doesn't matter, because there's no clear difference between the guns, there's a star based ranking bar for the weapons, but a one star assault rifle does around the same damage that a 5 star rifle does, so all the guns feel exactly the same. And you don't even need to buy cars unless you REALLY want to drive a certain car. Chicago is apparently a booming super economy because ever 1 out of 6 cars is a high performance sports car, and they're just sitting on the street, so the cars on demand feature is useless because you can just steal any car you need. There's also no penalty for stealing cars, by the way. I'm sorry, but there's nothing interesting in this game. At all. I can appreciate that this is probably just me, and a lot of people are able to just over look some design flaws and enjoy the game, but there's nothing in this game that's overly great to me. It's been a couple weeks since I beat it and I can't remember a single mission that stood out to me, except maybe when you're fighting in T-Bone's scrap yard, but everything else is so by the numbers and generic there was nothing memorable in this game. None of the characters, none of the story, and nothing really in the gameplay. There's also a LOT of ludonarrative dissonance, yes, that dreaded phrase that people hate. But you see, unlike most smart asses who try to use it as a cheap excuse to hate on games like Bioshock Infinite and The Last of Us, I actually know what ludonarrative dissonance means There's a bunch of scenes later in the game where Aiden thinks to himself that he's turning into a killer, and that he "not that kind of man", mean while I'm plowing over civilians, murdering hundreds of mobsters and stealing money from any person that walks close enough to me. There's also the fact that Aiden's character is so poorly written he doesn't realise that everything bad that happened to him and his family throughout the game is entirely his own fault. But hey, why should he regret being such a horrible person when he can be Batman? My final verdict? It was meh, not really worth the praise that people are giving it, and very deserving of any hate it gets. If you liked it, that's fine. But when a game is advertised as THE next gen game that will usher gaming into a new golden era, I expect there to be something next gen about it, not a game that's supremely average in every way. Also, I think I'm just done Ubisoft. Am I the only one feeling this way? Seriously, I'm just done. Let's ignore the fact that they lied through their teeth about Watch Dogs' graphics but Ubisoft have been doing NOTHING but coming up with new ways to piss people off. And it's not like this is anything new, they've been at it for years! First we had Assassin's Creed 2's DRM back in 2012 for PC, that Ubisoft defended by saying it works, even when their servers went down and rendered a bunch of their games unplayable. Ubisoft spun this in their favour of course, saying that it was just exceptionally high demand. And when they refused, underline, REFUSED to release a PC version of I Am Alive Stanislas Mettra seemed to openly mock PC users by saying "There's so much piracy and so few people paying for PC games we have to precisely weight up against the cost of making it. If only 50, 000 people buy the game it's just not worth it". This statement seems to imply that a Ubisoft game that hundreds of thousands of people to millions of people are playing, out of all those people only about 50, 000 of those gamers will have legitimately purchased the game. And in the same month they said that Ghost Recon Future Soldier wouldn't be coming to PC because, and I'm quoting Sebastien Arnoult here, "We know that 95% of our consumers will pirate the game". 95%. Ninety five percent. They KNOW that would happen. Doesn't everything about this just scream "Fuck you PC gamers"? I'm not even a PC gamer and even -I'M- pissed off about this shit. And I don't think I even need to talk about Ubisoft's list of shitty PC ports, weather it's Assassin's Creed 4 not being optimised because it's not important apparently, or From Dust not even fucking working properly, Ubisoft has made it very clear by now that it doesn't care about PC gamers, or the PC gaming audience, and would rather mock PC gamers behind their back's while lying about how they want to focus primarily on PC as a platform, which is bullshit because I'm yet to see a current Ubisoft game on the PC that doesn't require a gamepad to be playable. And then, of course, there's Uplay. Yes, let's talk about Uplay, a 'service' that doesn't do anything, gates content from Ubi's games, hassles gamers with separate log ins. AND, as it was discovered a couple years ago, is a security risk, leave a back door open on PC user's computers for malicious software via at least 21 games. It's a shitty thing that very few people like, and Ubisoft forces it into everything. There's not a single Ubisoft game, other that ZombiU and maybe Far Cry 3, that doesn't hassle you to log onto an online service that doesn't do anything. And I don't think I even need to talk about the Watch Dogs launch (yes, we're back on that game again) Where the game was unplayable to many people because Uplay shat itself and broke the game. And in more recent news regarding Assassin's Creed Unity (which I think will be completely fucking crap because Ubisoft is too chicken shit to do anything new or interesting with the AC franchise like it did in Black Flag) where Ubisoft seemed to shrug off the fact that history's most famous and deadly assassin was not only most active during the French revolution but was also female, making claims that it was just too expensive to use character models and voice actors for a female character. Because hey, why actually appeal to a wider audience when you can just say you are while going after the same teenage boys and young men. Not only does Ubisoft seem to think it's too expensive to have playable female characters, they thought it was a good idea to make up bullshit claims about how one of the biggest names in the AAA gaming industry could afford it, while games like Mass Effect, Skyrim, Saints Row, even fucking Super Mario has playable female characters and none of them are crying about how it's too expensive. But can you honestly believe ANYTHING from the company that admitted that they literally can't afford to make new IP's without turning it into a massive franchise? Let me repeat that last part. Ubisoft can't afford to make a single game any more. They HAVE to make a huge franchise. Ubisoft's accountants must hang themselves on a daily basis. I can't be the only person who's done with this crap. It can't be physically possible that no one else is just fucking sick of the lying, the shitting excuses, and the constant fucking requests to log into Uplay. I'm done with this crap. I honestly can not think of another major game company that is more deserving of the title of "The New EA". And yes, because all the sheep start bleating about how Ubisoft isn't the only company that pulls off constant bullshit, because EA does it too, man. That's just the point. EA does it too. As in EA isn't the only company constantly pissing people off. But Ubisoft seems to be the only company getting away with it. Well not any more. I'm for one am not just going to sit here and think "Oh well they made Assassin's Creed Black Flag and that was pretty awesome, so everything's okay" No. And I'll invite you guys to all do the same. I'm out. *drops mic*
  7. http://staggerd.com/14261/ex-ubisoft-employee-reveals-his-horrible-experince-with-ubisoft There are no words to describe it. Just none and yes, it relates not only to Assassin's Creed but PC games as well with the CEO saying that 90% of PC Gamers are pirates. Just heartbreaking.
  8. Article and thread Starting to see people I follow on twitter linking to reports of bad framerates and a lot of technical problems in Unity for the PC, PS4, and One. Looks like some of the usual stupid decisions for the PC as well. Uplay is working just fine. After some of the people reporting this started getting replies and sharing some of those it looks like some people are experiencing a lot of problems like the above article says, some are having those problems often but not as much, and some people have only had issues a few times (if those people are all playing it on the PC, and that was your version of choice, good luck being someone with a setup that runs it well). Hopefully they fix some issues with a patch soon. Maybe look at buying Valkyria Chronicles instead, much better performance reports on it.
  9. Game: Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag Age Rating: 18+ Genre: Stabbing People, hacking computers and playing alongside pirates like Blackbeard and Charles Vane..............Go figure. Played on: Playstation 3 Publisher and Developer: Ubisoft Game Director: Ashraf Ismail Lead story writer: Darby Mcdevitt ( These guy’s names are mentioned cos they sure as hell deserve it ) Before people started complaining about the previous Assassin’s Creed instalment (AC3), let me just tell you, Ubisoft has been listening; listening very intently to its fans. Now, AC4 may have some flaws of its own but you will be glad that most of the things that we hated in AC3 were taken care of; most not all though. OUTLOOK AC4 takes place during the golden age of piracy ( where you play as Edward Kenway, a privateer turned pirate) in the Caribbean ocean with Kingston, Havana, Nassau and 70 other locations and islands with exotic, thick and lush forests that look breathtakingly beautiful. I think it would be apt to say that the team put in an extraordinary amount of effort to create these surroundings. The forests look beautiful. Not only graphically but also abstractly; like you could jus climb a tall old Mayan building and jus look over the forest, gazing out to the Caribbean ocean, watching the sun set. Poetically beautiful. Now, when AC3 had come out many people weren’t actually happy with the frontier ( forest ); there was one games journalist who described the frontier as having “too many right angles”. But its good to see that the team have nailed the forest surroundings; they look soo perfect; naturally organic and breathtakingly beautiful. GAMEPLAY Coming to the gameplay mechanics, the naval part was a huge addition. I mean, this game is a boon to all those people who were dying for a real pirate game. The map is huge. HUGE. It would take you an approx of 45min to sail from one end of the map to the other. And its not a boring voyage either. The Caribbean ocean is completely filled with islands to discover, whales and sharks to hunt, storms to pilot through, forts to take down and ships to plunder. Never before have i seen such a beautiful open ocean or such a scary storm in a game. And the best part is there are no loading screens anywhere ( except for the three cities, that is ). You can seamlessly jump off your ship, or board another ship without any cut scenes. There are always ships around that you can plunder or sometimes you need to plunder to obtain the cargo required to upgrade your ship, The Jackdaw. The Caribbean ocean in this game is a seductive mistress always pulling you towards her with new things to offer every time. I just wish that the wife, the storyline that is, was just as seductive. The plot is great but it jus doesn’t attract you too much. Anyways this is a spoiler free game review so i will leave it at that. All this talk about the Caribbean ocean, doesn’t mean that the cities aren’t good. They are as interactive as cities in the AC series ever were. And all those who were disappointed by the architecture in AC3, well, the buildings in these are great and have a nostalgic touch to them, taking you back to rome for a moment where you running around rooftops as Ezio. The combat system hasn’t changed much. The combat is a bit more difficult than it was in AC3 but its much the same to the veterans. The hunting system has improved though. Taking inspiration from Far Cry 3 (another ubisoft game) , the hunting system is linked to your health and armour upgrades so the game almost forces you to hunt to make yourselves better. And its not boring either STORYLINE (NO SPOILERS) As said earlier, the story was good but could have been better. Personally, i liked it a lot. And the games does a perfect job of helping you connect not only with Edward but also with the other pirates like Blackbeard, Anne bonny, Mary Read etc. My advice, don’t go googling this pirates before you play the game; it feels wonderful to discover their lives and ideologies while playing the game. To wrap this up without any spoilers, lets just say that never before have i felt such strong emotions for a pirate. REAL LIFE It seems, that for the first time, Ubisoft seemed to have nailed the real life sequences; FINALLY!!! We play as ourselves, a memory researcher who is hired to by Abstergo to research Edward kenway’s memories so that they can have some amazing footage to make it into a commercial videogame. The abstergo offices are immersely interactive( with a few surprises ); the offices are filled with computers to hack and secrets to unravel. And the best thing; these are optional. Good job, Ubisoft. CONS · Unfortunately, the eavesdropping missions are back which are annoying. Like really fucking annoying. GET RID OF THEM, UBISOFT!!! · The storyline is slow at the start and and at many parts in between. · The storyline, though perfectly captures the essence of piracy, fails to actually stay true to its assassin roots. FINAL VERDICT This game offers you a solid interactive entertainment of 20 hrs on the main story line. An additional 40 hrs for the side activities. Although, not all missions are great, this game has so much stuff to do, you will be happy sailing for a long long time. Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag might have some flaws but it truly embraces the actual essence of sand box gaming. So polish our cutlasses and clean you guns, lads cos this game is gonna give you one hell of a pirate voyage. YARRR!!! My score: 9/10 P.S thank you for spending your time reading this review. Your feedback is very important to me, so plz comment your thoughts on this game and its review below. Thank you, once again.
  10. Finally! Ever since I started playing games, I've always wanted a setting taking place during the French Revolution. So I was EXTREMELY happy when I saw the first teaser the other day - thanks to Ubidsoft for that great news! Am I the only one excited? Can't wait for this game!

  11. Now, don't get me wrong. I do agree with most of what Joe's Top 10 list. There is just one game, that in my opinion, shouldn't be there. It's AC4. Why? Because I hated the boat sections of AC3, and hoped that they never return. I generally suck at video games, but I usually manage to beat them. But the mandatory ship battles of AC3 were too hard, and took me hours to complete because I managed to die in the ship tutorial quite a few times. I never piloted the ship if the game didn't make me do it. AC4 wasn't easier. In fact, the mandatory ship sections halted my entire progress of the game, and I never got to complete it. I don't know about you, but the best section of AC3, for me, was when Desmond had to go to battle the guy in the real world, with real guns and stuff. That's the kind of AC game I would've wanted to have. I was very disappointed that they killed Desmond in the end of AC3, because hadn't he trained in the Animus for the very purpose of fighting templars in real life? I want modern day AC, not the historical nonsense that doesn't even have any lore behind it anyway. I want to be able to fight with people wielding actual guns, so that Stealth is more important element of the game. Because that is what the franchise was known for when AC2 came out. Stealth. Acrobatics. Big cities with lots of places to explore, Prince of Persia like jumping puzzles in Cathedrals, that kind of stuff. If you still think AC4 should be part of the Top 10 list, then at least do acknowledge, that it wasn't a real sequel to the AC1 and AC2. The game is called Assassin's Creed, and the main part of the game is... Driving around in ships? That doesn't make any sense. They should make the real AC4 next time, not AC5. Yes, we now had a sidetrack of AC4 in the from of AC4:Black Flag, like Far Cry 3 had Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon. TL;DR AC4 is not AC game, it doesn't belong to Top10 list.
  12. Currently on my channel, you'd expect lots of music, as I've taken it up as a hobby. The kinds of music you'd see would vary from 8bit/chiptune to orchestral (I use a lot of soundfonts so expect it to sound shitty) as a result of my video gaming influences (So expect alot of my music to sound like Pokemon, Final Fantasy, Legend of Zelda) If anyone wants to use this music for a video, just ask. Here's an example of some of the music you'd expect: I also do some Assassins Creed Black Flag Multiplayer commentary with a few useful videos, currently I've been playing a shitload of Domination and in most rounds winning with clear victories. Unfortunately the video editor I used fucked up somewhere (or I did) and left some pitch modifications so... whatever.
  13. Been hearing around the internet that Ubisofts 'Uplay' system is being cancelled due to uproar from the fans that it is keeping previously accessible content in other games from being unlocked in Black Flag. Could anybody give some clarification as to whats going on?
  14. I generally get pissed off when assassins creed gets countless sequels but Beyond good and evil gets no sequel even though it was a success on the Xbox live arcade. Any of you feel the same way. -GruntWatcher
  15. Who here has Black Flag? How good are you in multiplayer? Wanna start an AJSA clan?
  16. Do you guys remember when one of the producers said this: "The new platforms are a lot closer to PC, so my engineers could do the R&D on PC and we knew it would work fairly easily on next-gen platforms. It needed to be adapted, but everything does. It's always a question of compromise about the effect, how it looks, and the performance it takes from the system. On PC, usually you don't really care about the performance, because the idea is that if it's not [running] fast enough, you buy a bigger GPU. Once you get on console, you can't have this approach." They either have backpedaled or had their statements spoken erroneously apparently. in this update on their blog. Do you think they are being sincere or just a bunch of backpedaling PR bullshit?
  17. First off I would like to apologize for not being able to also include Black Flag in this review. I haven't been able to buy it and I've only played 30 minutes of it at my friend's house. Secondly I'd like to put EXTREME emphasis on the fact that this is my personal opinion of the AC games. With that out of the way, lets get into the actual review. Story: While the AC games actually take place in modern America, most of the time playing is in past eras. AC1 and small parts of Revelations take place in the Holy Land just after the 3rd Crusade. AC2 and Brotherhood take place in renaissance Italy. Most or Revelations takes place in Constantinople ( or Istanbul ) near the end of the renaissance age. AC3 takes place in colonial America before, during, and after the American Revolution. The plot, in 2012, Desmond, a bartender in New York, is captured by Abstergo Industries, or the modern day Templars. Desmond, who's ancestors were Assassins, is put in an animus. An animus is a device that allows you to relive the lives of your ancestors. The Templars use him to get the locations of the pieces of Eden. These devices, made buy an advanced race, can bind the mind of man to do the wielder's biding. In the animus you play as an Assassin in is quest to stop the Templars, however that is achieved. I wont go into to much detail on the story to stop spoilers, but at the end of AC1, Desmond gets freed by the modern day Assassins and is used to get find the pieces of Eden to STOP the Templars. The game has 3 main characters up to AC3, Altair ibin la-Ahad, Ezio Auditore, and Connor Kenway. Altair is a duty-full but quick tampered assassin in AC1. Ezio is a charming, womanizing assassin from AC2, Brotherhood, and Revelations. Connor is a strong willed but naive Native American assassin from AC3. Gameplay: AC games are like an Action/Adventure game if I had to put it in a category. Parkour and climbing buildings is a major mechanic in the games. AC3 added tree climbing for the first time. When fighting, you use attacks, blocks, counters, and the like. Tools like poison, darts, bombs and guns are major weapons along with the swords and the iconic hidden blade. You use the hidden blade to assassinate targets and do sneak attacks. in AC2 and onward, they added a notoriety system, which if you wnt pass the allowed notoriety, you get persuade by guards. AC3 also added naval combat. Multi-player: In Brotherhood they added multiplayer. In it, you go after your target, another player, while someone else hunts you. While it is a unique gameplay style, it not a major selling point. Likes: fun combat, mostly; good quality single player, good characters with fun stories, and ok multiplayer Dislikes: Sometimes repetitive missions, tree climbing isn't that fun, and guns no way to raise or lower difficulty. Final thoughts and Score: The AC franchise is a iconic game series one I enjoy. While I didn't like AC3 all that much, because of lack of big cities ment less building running and I felt like I was wanting to walk on ground. THis may be because I'm not that good at the games, but in AC3, the enemies seemed harder and spotted you WAY quicker. AC1 is boring at parts, mainly because of repetitive missions and it feels almost to realistic. My final score for the series is a 8/10 This was my first review so I'd love some feed back and suggestions. Thanks for reading
  18. Hey guys, Just thought I'd share some of my AC4 vids that I have been doing. I already feel like it is a vast improvement over AC3, plus I enjoy the pirate aspect anyway. But I found that almost immediately after I got my ship, that I was getting distracted easily (which is a very good thing). Get the feeling already ill be sailing the seas looking for lost treasures most of the time haha!

  19. So lately I've been thinking a lot about if I want to keep my copy of Assassin's Creed IV for the PS4 that I've ordered, or cancel it and buy something else. The reason I'm rethinking my purchase is because I've already played and beaten AC4 on the Xbox 360. The game was very fun and I was really looking forward to see the graphical difference between the 360 and PS4 for myself, but I'm starting to think that it might not be worth buying a game I've already played through. Also, I'm not really into the multiplayer in AC, so the singleplayer is the only thing that AC4 has to offer for me. So I wanna ask the Angry Army: if not AC4, what other game should I buy? (Games I'm already getting - Battlefield 4, Killzone: Shadow Fall, Destiny and The Devision.)
  20. So i was not able to buy the game yet and im really wondering how this game stacks up to the other AC games,Im a die hard AC fan and have played all the games. Anyway all i want to know is what do the people think of this game does it really improve much of the things AC3 did wrong?
  21. I was wondering if anyone has had a chance to take a look at the PC version yet. I'm stuck at work right now so I can't really get on it. Does it look like a "next gen" game, or does it have relatively normal graphics for a PC game. I've played on Xbox360 and dem grafix not lookn 2 gewd. Just looking for opinions as I won't get to check it out for a couple more hours.
  22. Hello everyone. Just wanted to see if im the only one who loved AC4 more than any other in the series??? I dont know what it is but i think this game is epic. maybe not a real AC game but all pirate games from now on should be up to this standard. loved the freedom to sail around and attack whoever you fancy. loved the upgrading of your ship. sometimes i forgot about the assassins part of the game and thought i was playing pirates of the Caribbean. Does anyone else love this game as much as me?
  23. Hello fellow angry soldiers! This is my very first forum and my very first day in Angry Army. But anyways, I just wanted to know if anyone wanted to make a angry army clan of recruits for the Assassins Creed IV multiplayer on PC
