Will you buy Assassin's Creed III?

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 
Ubisoft confirmed last month that the PC version of Assassin's Creed III will be delayed until December probably (before Christmas).
You all know what that means don't ya? No, they aren't spending that extra time polishing the game for bugs or to optimize controls rolleyes.gif
This is the 3rd time this has happened, and the 3rd time they give no details as to why the game is delayed, even though most of us already know.
So back to the topic, will you buy Assassin's Creed III? And if yes, will it be for PC or the 360/PS3 version?
Personally, I don't want to buy it unless used because well..I just don't like Ubisoft. Perhaps I'll get the PS3 version later next year used >biggrin.gif That'll show em xD

I'll wait for the PC version.

Looks much more detailed on PC, more immersive.

Sssshhhh. Remember when Bf3 launched and how bad it was? Constant CTD and just not loading. Even now its still not 'fixed' now all they do is mess with weapon balancing and now all weapons are pretty much the same. But that's besides the point.

I'd rather have a game be delayed and launch without any issues, even though that's almost impossible. But at least it tells me they're working on getting things right, or they found issues that need resolved before it launches. They understand its more important to delay revenue in order to get it right. They believe it'll gain higher revenue in order to offset the added costs of fixing/develping timing it takes to delay the launch. I'm sure everything they're doing is exactly worth the wait.

As far as buying it. I might wait to see more of the gameplay. Graphics look great but I want it to really push my system. Probably around March/April time I'll be upgrading my GPU so I want a game to really push it, will ACIII do it? probably not, but at least it'll hopefully bring a very immersive gameplay. thumb.gif

As always , I will buy it when it is 50 percent off or more during a summer sale. I just beat revelations after buying it during the summer sale so I can wait till Christmas or next summer.

The game looks great. And I love the Assassin's Creed series for it's story and gameplay. I have all the other games on PC..but i'm still deciding on what platform to get it on.
I know the PC version will be a lot better, but I really hate Ubisoft mad.gif maybe the game will be less buggy and more optimized for PC. Perhaps they actually do a little of that while cooking up a DRM.

Most definitely not after what happened to revelations. I really had to push myself to finish the game and by far did not enjoy it. Story went downhill after the second two assassins creed games, after they changed writers... bah

You too huh?
I didn't really find it fun both story and gameplay wise. i uninstalled it for a while and then reinstalled it a few days ago to give it another try.
It's still not as fun as ACII and Brotherhood was. I'm gonna wait a while after the third game is released to see how it is =)

I personally liked Revelations. The only thing that had put me off was tower defense.

That as well!
having to be interrupted from doing something to go and defend your territory or whatever.
Perhaps I'll just ignore it and take it over again at a later time from now on
