    Of course there will be an AC4, AC: Divinations, AC: Procrastinations, AC: Nephewhood, or whatever they end up calling the next one. Maybe Assassin's Creed: Actually 6?

    I just cant get past the lack of ambient music in this game. Surely there are others out there that feel the same as i do? As far as i can tell most people are complaining of the glitches and bugs..but in my opinion,the biggest problem with AC3 is the total lack of ambient music outside of fights and missions.

    Personally,its slowly destroying the game for me..im starting to lose interest. Its completely souless..theres no feeling of enchantment or wonder. You move from mission to mission and no zone has any character or ambient feeling. Just sound effects of nature or the random chit chat of city life.

    Some players prefer it that way..i can understand that,everyone is differant. However,in past AC games you could just lower the music volume to 0 if you preferred it that way..in AC3,the music volume option is pointless..since there isnt any music most of the time lol.

    Frustrating stuff..i hope its a glitch and Ubi come out with some sort of patch,but i have the OST and i doubt that will happen. Honestly compare http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9qX_WOD4EaI or http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KvZHAT7xHO4 to the souless,standard sound effects that play during free roam in AC3.

    Tis honestly the worst thing they have done to this series..they removed the music and its soul in the process. Anyone out there feel the same?

    I've noticed that in the playthroughs I've seen. Feels... "odd" for lack of a better word.

    Although it was a bit badly written, the ending actually makes sense.
    It was pretty obvious that Desmond and his group of buddies won't be able to finish what the First Civilization had failed. Also Desmond is the most boring character in the game, so killing him actually opens the possibility for a better main character. And there is the possibility of going back 70 000 years to see how to defeat Juno, so only good things are ahead.

    There is something I don't understand about the ending.

    The First Civilization failed to protect Earth from the solar flare or w/e it was. Why did releasing Juno save the Earth. Assuming she caused that green Aurora Borialis thing (I assume it was a shield of some kind?), why couldn't the Precursors do something similar?

    Maybe they needed Juno for this but decided not to release her due to the danger of enslaving humanity. Also Minerva said "THEY will enslave your kind". They, not she. Makes a big difference. Maybe Juno will try to contact the others of their race. She might be powerful but I doubt that she would be able to conquer the entire human race alone.

    It sounded like a sanctity of life thing to me. Since it killed the person activating it.

    KUKUKUKUKU. Check out what I got today.



    Got the Assassin's Creed I never got to pick up because of hurricane, reserved God of War, Tomb Raider, and GTA5, and also they gave me one of those scopes for preordering at Target. (I went to Gamestop before Target to try and get the toy but it was closed, thank god, I prefer Target.)

    Oh and I know this isn't the right place for this kind of thing but meh it's okay, I don't think anyone minds.

    Uhhhh if anyone wants to make a Megathread for Tomb Raider or God of War, that'd be cool. I'll make one some time later as soon as I compile some information, otherwise.

    Just finished The game, there were a few nice twist, even the ending but wasn't really a fan of it killing off the only one who can use the animus (for our pov) or the fact it seemed they choose to go with the mass effect ending by "killing" him..but still really hoping for more of this game I would hate if it just leaves us with Juno apparently winning this whole thing. On the bright side maybe we finally play in the present (or future) if they make more games.

    Just beat the game....anyone depressed on Conner's ending? Loses his mother, betrayed by the people he thought were the stainless heroes, kills his father, losses his father figure, finally completes his mission just to find out there is no silver lining, the gods don't give a crap about him and oh yeah his whole village up and left and the people he help put into power are already starting to look like the last guys in power. And to think....that is it.....unless we strap Desmond's father in to get back to Conner that's his story.... Other then that great game and can't wait to see what they do next.

    Well from the added epilogue stuff seems like someone retakes control of Connor so someone or something is strapped into it. As for Connor himself...no offense but he was a Indian..kinda knew it wasn't gonna end well for him.

    I'm gonna get this game as soon as I get back to home and I wouldn't mind an Asian setting for next game. Actually, I would love it.

  13. #353
    Sup, i'm gonna start playing it tomorrow, how many hours of gameplay (only doing the "main quest") should i expect?

    :O Beat the game for Thanksgiving weekend. Ending was fucking unexpected. I never played other AC games but skimmed through the story plots on wikipedia.

    'Bout Desmond: Holy fuck Desmond died. I mean, no one liked him, but I didn't want him to die lol. That girl showed up and was like "oh yeah btw if you touch that you die." ?!?!?!?!? For a whiny bitch who didn't even want to go in the Animus and complained all the way he sure took death well. I REALLY HOPE the AC story doesn't end here, even though apparently this was Desmond's last stop. Maybe they'll let us play Templar POV later?

    Connor: Meh was typically expected ending. He ended up killing his father before Charles Lee though, that was a shock. I thought his Dad would be the final boss. That final ship battle was SICK AS FUCK. It was so hard too lol. I was kind of hoping Desmond was gonna bury the necklace in the spot where his Mom died though.

    All the games have huge WTF endings like that. It may not seem like it out of context when reading the wiki articles, but it's kind of jaw dropping if you experience it in order. Probably the biggest WTF moment in the whole series is the ending of AC2. When Minerva talks to Desmond I flipped a bitch! Of all of them, AC3 probably had the most predictable, least shocking ending. The main thing that mindfucked me in AC3 was discovering that Haytham is a Templar.
    If Goku's power level increases at the same rate till the end of DBGT as it does till the end of the Frieza saga, as a SS4 Goku would have a PL of roughly 939 Quinoctogintillion. For reference that is a 260 digit number. A PL of 14,600 is required to destroy an earth sized planet. There are about 2 nonillion earths worth of mass in the universe. That means SS4 Goku can destroy the universe about 32 Octosexagintillion times over. There's a reason they made Goku a god at the end of GT.

    I never cared for desmonds story, always played AC for the assassin's story. Connor as a character was great but the story was lacking, also it didn't really feel like a "war" other than the naval battles, ordering men to shoot 6 redcoats over and over again was not fun. It didn't feel as epic as they could have made the revolutionary war. The ending was abrupt and unexpected (not in a good way). Ezio's character, imo, is better than connors as he has actual love interests and multiple motives that change over time. Connor felt a bit 2d. The only aspect of this game that I actually prefer over the others is that the free running and combat was a major improvement. The cities were boring and don't even hold a candle to the previous ones. The frontier gets boring really fast and it all seems the same, I found myself fast traveling the majority of the time, which is something I rarely did in the previous games.

    I seriously like the setting way more than I did in Revelations.

    I had the exact same problems in this game. My biggest grip was how 2D Connor was, and how bland the City's were. I had my fun with the game, but it wasn't even close to how impressed I was with AC2 or AC Brotherhood

    I am quite disappointed with the game that i stopped playing halfway through it. Connor is a terribly made character in comparison to ezio - he looks like an angry teenager with a ridiculous morality and i'm just disgusted playing him. I didn't like the way cities look. The might be historically accurate - but they're not even remotely as immersive and fun to explore as AC1 damascus was or AC2 rome was. And the story itself wasn't really going anywhere. The other thing that disgusted me is what they did to the assassin brotherhood. I just don't feel like an assassin anymore - i feel like a lunatic running around in assassin robes. AC2:Brotherhood really gave me that brotherhood grandmaster feel, where i recruited,trained and promoted assassins, sent them to missions and gave them orders. Here - my "recruit" is some french weirdo running around with a butcher knife, and he's a so called "assassin".
    I did like what they added to the game - the new rope weapon, naval battles and the "new" combat system.

    It's just a reskinned AC2, not immersive and really not worth playing. The optional objectives aren't really optional.. in order to get full sync you have to get all optional objectives, the way it should be is you get bonus rewards that are just aesthetic for completing objectives, like a different skinned weapon or armor, not a piece to the story.
