A game that sells well and wins awards for setting new bars is always copied.
In the late 90s, Half Life with its long boring train introduction led to the linear, cinematic campaigns in every game since then, including Call of Duty. And now the next AssCreed will have “a Witcher feel” since The Witcher 3 apparently set a bar with its boring, more grounded in reality storytelling.

Can't wait to see Ubisoft shoehorning drama, sad characters and Souls combat into its next games because thats whats popular.

Assassin's Creed needs to go more fantasy. Black Flag would have been twice as good if it had sea monsters and shit.

But that means that AC will be a playable game once again, what's the problem? AC's strongest point was open-world climbing and killing system based on climbing but that was new 6 games before.

Shoehorning the "asassin outfit" to all games since the original feels extremely jarring to me. It felt kinda appropriate in the original while in the sequels it stands out like sore thumb. Often times it's not just silly but trying to mix in setting-appropriate features makes it look ugly to boot.

Not really.

And I think they are just talking about having dialog options that influence the story so nothing the Witcher invented really.
We had that in may other games before.

And if they are talking about Witcher quality writing, yeah Ubisoft will never be able to do that.

Being alive at the time seems like a pretty good source, right? The fact is, Half-Life started the cinematic game trend. It told it's story through gameplay instead of cutscenes, but that still amounted to you standing in a room listening to people talk for a good chunk of the game.

The fact that these people are using info that LITERALLY originated from 4chan makes me think there is truth to it. for example, when far cry primal had that flash video slowly zooming out for 24 hours before announcing it, some game journalist tweeted about how he heard they were making an ice age far cry, so they get info ahead of time. I think some journalist knew about this game but couldn't write about it, but now they can because 'hey it was on 4chan i didn't leak it.' Fuck i just woke up dont know if i'm making sense

MGS was vastly more cinematic than half-shit. The real game/s that started us down this awful path was the first uncharted and halo 1. Not to mention the plethora of FMV games in the early 90's.

Half life is garbage, and always has been. People copy good games not shit ones

Except that's wrong. They both show up around the 12th century AD. I mean sure maybe the game lore says garden of Eden bullshit but the point of the original game was reliving history in the context of the assassins that were an actual medieval islamic sect. Essentially ancient Isis.

Why? Because they list the treasure? Most of it if just coins and useless items. Good collectables are hidden and hard to find. Give it a second chance. Literally best game in the series for being least like the series.

The first Assassins Creed was meant to be a PoP spin off where you are the pinces bodyguard
>>
>>323025107
Right. And the assassins were just a militant group fighting over which version of the sect was correct. They didn't start fucking with the crusaders until it became assistant that they were a threat. It was mostly assassinations of high target leaders in the Muslim world of whether they didn't approve of. Interesting stuff really.

Be that as it may, it has come to this, and i have come to this as well.


Witcher 3 worked wondrously and marvellously.


However, taking components and slapping it onto a game franchise won't save it from being demolished by proper games.

>AssCreed
>being a witcher clone with souls combat
Hah. IT takes more than "sandbox-like", "grounded in reality" bullshit to be witcheresque.

The witcher works because of it's strong roots, it's book backing, it's writer also stole a lot of things - plagiarized - from others, and made it work. There's an overarching "secret" in this. Dedication and love.

Ubisoft only has love for money, and dedication for more shitty DLC and uPlay forcing. So, as good as it is, and as good it may prove to these games, it still won't be as good as the Witcher 3, or those who actually closely follow its trail.

"grounded in reality" my ass anyway, White frost, magic, etc... i fail to see the Groundedness.

Horrible I would accume? The games always leak early and always have some technical difficulties.

But even on console people must be getting sick of this shit after a yearly release and sometimes even 2 releases per year
>>
With "Witcher-feel" the dev meant that this AC focuses a lot on the sense of adventure and discovery as well as player progression.

No, you will not have a fucking RPG with a the ability to choose shit.

I don't know why this is a problem. Oh of course, I'm on /v/.

Ask them also why Arkham combat? Because it's one aspect of a popular game, so why not copy it? Understanding why it works in the first place be damned.
>>
>>323030971
Everybody is asking for this since 3.
Make a pirate game with the same naval combat but also sea monsters and mystery shit like in Pirates of the Crebean.

But Ubi won't do it they will just beat their cashcow until it turns into a dead horse.

It wasn't bad it was just more of the same without improvements.
And 4 for PC was bottlenecked.

Quick reminder that this game will not be set in ancient Egypt but in 19th or 20th century Egypt so they can make the villains Europeans as "having non White villains in assassins creed is something we try to avoid in our multicultural team that make the AC series" heck they made the fucking Slaving, coloninsing, genocide commiting Ottomans as the good guys.
