We were excited to bring in new episodes, but a job change and really unfortunate schedule conflicts have dashed those hopes. There are a few episodes that were left on the shelf and those should be up soon.
I’m not sure about whether I’ll continue the show solo or change up the format a bit, but I’m not just chucking it in the bin.
Ever since Assassin’s Creed, I started to see any other story game like being in the Animus and reviewing their memories. Think about it, whenever is Cole and Delsin from InFamous, Issac Clarke from Dead Space, or Subject Delta and Booker from Bioshock, you see everything that they went through! Also if you failed a mission or you died, you fail and restart at whatever checkpoint you left off, you desynchronized. Subject Delta did not die here, desynchronizing… Completing objectives, surviving, and upgrading is synchronizing closer to them as one progresses. Having update stats, weapon stats, map stats, just like how the Animus has. We are all just going through their memories, like we are to the Assassins, both past and present. At least that is how I see it anyway!
I actually really liked how two separate buttons distinguished regular running from free-running. In these newer games I literally parkour all over everything when I’m just trying to get down the street.
I don’t understand all the hate on AC3. I mean, I still prefer AC2, but AC3 has it all: understanding the Templars, what the ‘ones who came before’ really want, an explanation on why the Creed grew smaller, and does it all with a historical accurate story with lots of hints to deeper stuff around the independence. And the parkour is spot on.
Ubisoft should ask the players’ forgiveness for killing Desmond the way they did. After years of collecting data and training his skills he was killed by touching a piece of metal, after making a choice based on false information, ending up a tool for the templar. The entire story has become pointless.
So I played AC4, I was in awe by the fact that there was a lot to do, and I loved it. But the story was not right. I mean, Ubi said Edward was a pirate trained by assassins, but it was the contrary. We have a pirate, who all he cares is for coin. Encounters an assassin, and manages to kill him easily? Then he imitates their moves no problem? And kill a few more assassins? I hated that, it made the assassins look like they were just a bunch of guys with blades and hoods with no skill whatsoever. But then, the ending was cool. Although I’ve seen better endings. Revelations been the best by far. Anyway, I loved all the AC games. AC4 is the least I like, but I’m looking forward to play the Freedom cry DLC.
