[Kotaku] Assassin’s Creed III Will Be Out On October 30 - Page 3

post #21 of 36
I haven't had any personal problems with the DRM, but if it ever became an issue to me. I'd seek 3rd party help to fix it, no reason to worry I think.

We see Desmond get an entire M16 clip pounded into his chest and not go down, it's kind of going to be lame.

I'm betting that ubi doesn't deviate from the formula and there is an ancient animus in the cave nd we relive the life of someone else in order to save earth.

But, I will say that ubi has monster potential on their hands. They have the potential to make assassins creed into the next MGS. Make AC4 in desmonds time, in a major city like a NYC dystopia, Outfit the assassins order with nanosuits and lighweight seethrough bulletproof shields. Instant classic

Problem with getting it on the 360 is the stupid multiplayer codes that publisher are including in their games now. Can't even buy a dang used copy of battlefield 3 without paying an extra 800 MS points to unlock online.

I have yet to start revelation and yet to finish 1 and 2. Half way through them it always got kinda repetitive.

It will be Assassin's Creed 2.85, not Assassin's Creed 3. Ubisoft simply don't know what to do with this game and always lose track of what actually makes the game fun and what doesn't.

I was already pissed-off from Brotherhood because the last 2 hours involved repeatedly facing 5-10 enemies in a confined box (literally) with nowhere to run or hide. It's almost like the developers forgot their dose of cocaine that morning and went "Assassinations? Blending in? Whatever for? SWORD FIGHTING TIME!". It should've been called Swordsman's Creed. Not to mention the repetitiveness of it all.

One particular mission will always remain in my mind, it was a scene where I was standing amongst 30 people at a funeral, my goal was to assassinate the royal person who was going to give the speech. Someone tips him off that there is a assassin in the crowd, and I hear him say "alas, it appears one of us here is an assassin!" I figured it would be no problem, while they're trying to figure out who it is I would've stuck a hidden blade into his neck and gone. Right? Approximately 0.5 seconds later, every guard, crusader and archer in the area makes a beeline STRAIGHT FOR ME without a moment's hesitation. No questioning, no attacking anyone else, just point-blank straight for me. At this point I thought I had done something horribly wrong, so I loaded the mission again. Exactly the same thing happened no matter where I stood amongst the people. It was bizarre.
I spent the next 30 minutes running around the city killing them one by one as they chased me. When I finally killed my target (there were still 15+ guards left) it went into that dream-sequence where they give you a 5 minute speech after dying (I suppose all the guards just politely waited there for us to finish talking). And after the dream sequence all the remaining guards had mysteriously vanished. It was at that point I thought "....no, just no."

I mean look at this screenshot:

He's more like a tank wielding a sword than an assassin, happy to put himself in silly situations against stupid amounts of enemies because he knows he can hack them down one by one due to their completely inability to attack together and simply watch as their comrades die.

Ubsifot should work on something new...

Fantastic news.

Unfortunately, I fear that when they say October 30th...it means February 2013 for the PC version.
