>>263238374 None. Why is everyone being so assblasted? It's literally like you think no one could ever possibly be excited about a game. And this coming on a board with three or four fucking Zelda threads going at the same time.
>>263235348 You're a trooper (Especially if you also played everything before Brotherhood). I got bored halfway through AC1 and just called it there, dropped the series until Black Flag. I thought Black Flag was okay. Exploran', Shanties, Harpooning, Ship Combat, Treasure Hunting etc was all enjoyable, but the Story, Missions, Eagle Vision, Assassination, Stealth, Parkour etc - pretty much all the staple AssCreed mechanics was just as fucking terrible as I remember from AC1, it was hilarious to see they improved upon basically nothing after like 6 games.
Like, Fuck, even Dragon's fucking Dogma has better parkour then a game based around parkour... Just really think about that for a moment.
>>263234269 I actually never played any AssCreed or Batman Arkham something... They just are 100% casual, I mean fuck, from exploration/parcour to battle segments, everything looks so assisted it hurts.
>>263240012 Then pray, tell me what improves over the second half of the game? Because I'm pretty sure I experienced just about every mechanic the game had to offer by that point, and absolutely none of it interested me.
Going into Black Flag, next to nothing had improved. Melee Combat was still counter based and clunky as fuck, Eagle Vision still existed and was retarded, Assassinations still felt completely uninteresting and just some kind of chase + Press X to kill, Story was just as terribly written, Missions were all just "Follow X" "Eavesdrop on X" etc, and shitloads of redundant collecting.
Sure, many people say AC2 improved on AC1 a lot, but if Black Flag still included all the shitty AssCreed mechanics I hated in the first game, I doubt AC2 actually did anything that would have helped me enjoy the game.
>>263236470 The Ezio trilogy and Black Flag are my favourites. Rogue looks like Black Flag 2.0 from the templar's point of view so I imagine I'll get a kick out of it even if its more of the same.
Unity looks closest to II being that its France (closest thing to Italian Renaissance I guess) but I'm just gonna have to hold off until the PC version, I guess. I love me some Creed but I'm not buying a 'next-gen' console for one game. From what I've seen so far it looks decent, not really crazy about the co-op thing and probably won't even touch it (have yet to play any AC game's multiplayer)
>>263242279 Welp, we're gonna have to agree to disagree. AC2 was a big step up from AC1, but Black Flag was more fun. Combat wasn't as easy (still not hard), there was more variety in the gameplay, you actually felt like you'd gained something when you got money (yeah, there was still that dumb mansion, but the ship made up for it), the characters were more interesting...
Like I said, Blag Flag isn't a great game. But it's the best the AC series has been.
>>263242570 >The character had so much more backstory, development and personality too
Not sure if you're being sarcastic, but did we play the same fucking game? AC4's protag isn't spectacular, but it's a step up from AC3's. His backstory is extremely generic (half breed who'll help both sides! Mother dying to give him motivation! Darth Vader father!), and he has zero personality.
Every single character in the homestead that Connor helps has more character than him, and it's emphasized particularly by the voice actor's monotone. His only character development is 'WHERE IS CHARLES LEE?'
>>263242741 Black Flag was exactly the same gameplay as AC3, except there was no backstory to support it, and the various expanses of lush terrain were replaced by water expanses that are just tedious to navigate.
>>263243287 AC4 doesn't have a protagonist, it's just a gary stu pirate that kids can easily self-insert into. Connor did have a lot of character. I actually remember his story. Of course it's still a video game, don't except novel-level storytelling.
You obviously haven't played it. There's plenty to do on the water. Once your ship's tooled up, you can have hours of fun plundering. And that's not counting the underwater or side island missions, either.
>>263243792 We're just going to have to disagree there. Connor just felt to me extremely dull, and his monotone didn't help. I don't expect novel-level storytelling, but I do expect characters to be at least remotely entertaining if they're going to be front and centre during the hours of in-game cutscenes we sit through.
>>263243287 >>263244518 Agree with these. It's the only one in the series I gave up on once I got through the ridiculously excessive walk-in. Landscapes were dull and monotonous. The tree climbing was gay arsery compared to the buildings in the Italian series, towns looked bland as anything, character was insipid and uninteresting, story was too involved, world too limited, control functions absurd. Real fuck up of a game and you can tell they knew that and went right back to the fundamentals with BF.
>>263244784 But that's not the point you were making. You were talking about the ship parts like all you did was navigate (and that that was tedious), and I was pointing out that wasn't the case and that there was plenty more to do on the water and with the ship generally. Plus you might not have liked it, but personally one of my favourite things to do is go back and keep refining my warehouse looting skills. One of the most under-rated side missions in a game abounding with them. In fact, one of the most mission involved games I've ever played that are consistently interesting and engaging. I remain unconvinced that you've played it at all.
>>263244834 Glad that you agree with me! My only issue with BF, though, is that the sword to sword combat still has AC3's overly flashyness while having just as little challenge. Thankfully the naval combat is at least somewhat challenging and takes effort.
Have these faggots even fixed the combat? They only seem to be simplifying things further what with the "hold x to parkour down/up". I fucking hate Ubisoft for killing a series with this much potential.
>>263244973 It just didn't work. I found it boring, the views from the buildings generally are a high-point, and it didn't have them, and it wasn't nearly as intuitive as they were making it out to be either. The excessively complex trapping shit got on my nerves too. Like I say though, I gave up on it anyway so who knows if it ever got better. All I know is after a couple of hours, I felt like I needed some sort of phd just to play the fucking thing.
Me too. Seems like they're really changing the gameplay for the better and the setting is great. Pretty pissed that the other one is PS360 only though. Black Flag already looked and played like diarrhea on last gen.
>>263245212 I actually prefer the ship combat on the PS3. The aligned targeting mechanism is fucking ace. Combat generally I see what you mean but I more or less never pay much attention to it in any of them and rather prefer the stealth aspects. Blowpipes are fucking great too. Looking forward to Rogue. Only thing I'm going to miss are the underwater missions.
But yeah, 3 is just an all round boring looking, unnecessarily tedious game in my experience of it.
I felt like the sailing was absolute shit. The controls were way to easy relative to how hard it should be to pilot a ship -- Challenging can be fun, I don't know if you've heard of Pirates Online (Essentially PoTC by disney in an mmo form) but it had REALLY good sailing because the size of your boat affected your controls heavily. legitimate question, trying not to be hostile
>>263245409 The main character is a Native American, a people that is known for living in the wild mountains and forest, climbing trees and high mountains with no fear of vertigo, living off hunting wild animals. The story had someone with assassin's skill eventually fall in love with a Native American and give birth to a mixed breed who eventually became the main character. It was genuinely a good way to introduce a gameplay that combined elements of the classical assassin's creed gameplay of roof jumping and assassination, along with the new native american gameplay, somewhat similar yet a bit different, of hunting and climbing in the wild.
They designed new and refreshing gameplay elements and made a good backstory to support it. It was a pretty novel sequel and was very interesting for that reason.
Unfortunately, Ubisoft was too ambitious: players don't want novel experiences, they just want the same thing again and again. By incorporating serious issues and mature themes into their storytelling, they also took a big risk, which was probably a good opportunity as for once they were dealing with recent American history, and that risk didn't pay off. Players felt alienated as it hit too close to home.
Lot of missions, lot of variety in them, game story was big and involved, world looked fucking awesome and although ultimately it feels quite limited once it's opened up, it still takes a lot of work to get there. Liked the character, and the new take on the assassins. Loads and loads of missions. I know I'm mentioning it again but judt to make the point. Really enjoyed the fort takedowns and getting to work out the skills for them. Overall, I think it's the most skill-refining of all of them and gives me the distint impression they do actively focus on constantly tweaking and getting it more immersive and enjoyable while upping the complexity factor (without going full retard like they did in 3). Just a really great game that I find .i can go back to over and over and always feel like I'm playing it first time.
In terms of ships, you may very well be right, but it seems to me it serves more as an extension of the character than somrthing that needs to be mastered as a point of the game in itself. I found the boarding tedious after a while so that's a drawback (now I just rather block sink and plunder to make up for booty). Targeting mechanism on the guns I really like as mentioned. Does need tooling up though but again, always enjoyable.
>>263247185 The assassinations in 1 were pretty satisfying, yes. 2 improved most of the mechanics immensely, though, and still left room for planning and execution in many missions. There was also plenty of horseshit, though.
>>263246368 But that's not true. One of the reasons BF is so great is that it offers a shit-ton of new experiences and skills but it just doesn't feel so fucking tedious to have to get into and enjoy. I'm glad you made the point about 'serious issues' and 'mature themes' though because thatms genuinely what it felt like: serious business for grown-ups or some shit. Games should be fun and engaging - I'm sorry if that makes me sound like someone who doesn't know you're supposed to have a degree in them or something.
>>263248078 >4chan is restricted to adults only. >A joyus place where adults argue about how shit your taste is in comparison to there taste and will argue that point until the thread 404's How long've you been here? Two days maybe?
>>263236470 If it wasn't 95% tailing missions it would be the best. Playing AC2 again reminds me how slow as fuck that game (and not just because of the framerate on the PS3 version) and also how sloppy parkour was.
>>263234269 I'd like to say I'm "hype" but it's rather a cause of being incredibly cautious.
Missions actually about assassination? Great!
Tailing missions no longer instafail? Great!
Forcing Co-op features AND pre-orders in order to unlock in game content through the "UNITE" program? Terrible.
Getting your PR guy to speak on the behalf of the animators because "muh lack of wommyn"? That's asking for SJW pantshitting.
Can't even get 1000 NPC's on your behind the scenes video without an error saying that there's 922 NPC's too much appearing on the monitor? Why claim it's a feature?
Hell, I shouldn't even be calling the fixing of features that should have been fixed 6 years ago "great" because when ubisoft finally fixes something it usually takes 8 steps back on something else and then we get to play the half a decade waiting game for the cycle to repeat.
>>263234269 Cool. It's great that you can honestly be excited for a game that has been the same for such a long time. Truly I hope you are just a dumb teenager and not some shill because no one is this fucking stupid.
>>263255393 I wasn't even the one you were responding too. You really think only one person in this thread thinks you are goy as fuck for hyping AC 15? Stay fucking delusional you mongoloid. Please kill yourself.
>being hyped for Assassin's Creed 2014 >when even the first game was mediocre at best >when all the other games didn't fix how terrible the gameplay is >when the best parts of Black Flag were the parts completely different from the Assassin's Creed formula
>>263256034 Except I didn't actually get rekt at all because I wasn't the original person shitting on you you fucking mongoloid ape. Hyping a literal rehash when all the games have been shit, I mean we know you like to eat shit but don't be proud of it you monumental faggot.
>>263256214 I really enjoy the assassin's part in Black Flag. The cities were not that great but clearing out a plantation without being seeing was always fun. But fuck the blowdarts, that shit was broken.
>>263256623 Not really, honestly you seem kind of upset that everyone in the thread has called you out on being a literal goy fuck. But keep buying those yearly AC rehashes, that'll sure show us!!!! :^)
>>263257036 Come on kiddie, I've been on 4chan since 2004, just because you have been here for 4 years doesn't mean that you don't have shit taste, or a dumb motherfucker. Honestly you are on /v/ hyping an ubisoft game. Process that for a moment, then really think about how absolutely retarded you must be to do this. Then if you really feel bad about it, kill yourself.
>>263257707 What's the difference with you trying to take a stance of superiority by saying you have been here for four years you underage fuck? I'm not mad that you like eating shit, I'm just trying to show you why you are a cancerous fuck who needs to get back to the liberal shithole that is reddit.
>>263258509 You can't even spell amateur correctly you incessant mongoloid. You aren't even saying anything other than newfag and rekt like an underage redditor. Seriously man it makes me laugh just how pathetic the goy consumers of the video game industry are and how infantile they think. Really kill yourself.
Looks like this was what the A team was working on for the last few years, since its pretty clear the last few games were the B team. I'm actually really excited. Black Flag had its problems, but Ubi had fucking surveys in the game so they could listen to our feedback. I really enjoyed it, despite hating all forms of hype and marketing. So I'm actually pretty excited, especially for the more fluid movement.
>>263258608 > resorting to spelling bullshit > being this obviously buttravaged
Says the person who inexplicably seems to have read 'four years' from nothing that said as much at all. Also, the constant repeating the same old boring insults that are quite obviously failing to have any impact whatsoever.
>>263259232 I mean nothing is as embarrassing as hyping yourself up for the next installment of AC. You literally have to be a wage slave goy who doesn't even have a single though in your brain to do so. It's great, I mean anything you say doesn't really even matter because your whole argument and what you are defending makes you a mongoloid.
>>263260530 That's actually amusing you saying that I am repeating myself when your retort is literally one sentence long and includes rekt or newfag. My bad 2 words long, looks like you have nothing to say except the understanding that you are a complete moron.
Oh and next time you can do better than repeating 2 words for 8 consecutive posts. Maybe brush up on some vocabulary but that may be a stretch considering the amount of retardation you must possess in order to hype the next AC.
>>263234269 >literally getting objectively hyped for any video game in 2014 >literally hyped for an AssCreed game >literally expressing this hype on /v/ Just fuck off. There is no reason to get hyped for any game anymore and I certainly hope you won't preorder.
