Assassin's Creed IV

So, uh, WHY are they already showing commercials for Assassin's Creed IV again?

Personally, I can't wait to assume the role of a young Henry Rollins in 1980s Los Angeles.

Of course they are, and you are too... otherwise, you wouldn't have come here.

There's a Black Flag reference in there somewhere but damned if I know what it is.

Which do you not know: that Creed 4 is subtitled Black Flag or that Rollins was the lead singer of Black Flag?

This one. I haven't paid attention to the ads.

That said , I'm a "TV Party" type of dude.

Because the last one made millions of dollars and it tends to be really easy to get gamers to buy into hype?

Consider me bought!

You know, it's funny (and not to change the subject) but I've thought about how lately, pretty much every game I play (and will play in the future) is a sequel. Assassin's Creed, Uncharted, Dead Space, Infamous, God Of War, pretty much anything Rockstar puts out (though that's not technically a sequel)...regardless...my current gaming pattern is pretty much a revolving door of whatever is the latest sequel to the aforementioned series'. Which is fine by me as long as the games continue to be awesome.

They pump these games out faster than rabbits can multiply, and they're all good. Meanwhile I have to wait 14 years between Bioshock releases.

I don't know...this probably belongs in the Assassin's Creed III thread but I just got into the real meat of the game and I haven't been quite as impressed as I hoped. There are definite improvements but I'm still seeing a lot of the same types of glitches from the other games.

And Jesus, the lip-synching in the cinema scenes is God-awful. It just looks like the characters' lips are chattering away with random words going on. There have been times I can't tell who's supposed to be the one talking since everyone's just kinda spastically moving.

You may THINK you're at the meat of the game, but you're probably not there yet.


And man... speaking of it, I didn't really care much for the naval stuff in AC III. So the thought of a huge chunk of AC IV taking place on the water makes me kinda meh about it.

Well I just got through the BiG twist at the beinning (very well done) and just got done learning to hunt as the "real" main character. I can already tell that this is what they were saving the "real" fun for and I'm already having a blast climbing through trees and air-assassinating random animals.

Oh, yeah. You're nowhere fucking near the real meat of the game then. Not even close.

Good to hear!

Yeah that's one of my main problems (in a good way) with games like these - I start straying from the main story before I'm probably supposed to and attempt things that I'm not really capable of yet. For instance, I just tried to take over my first fort right out of the hunting training, armed with a few arrows and that's about it. After about 8-10 unsuccessful tries, I got the feeling that you're probably supposed to infiltrate it when you're a bit more prepared and well-armed.

Wait, this pirate game is AC4? I just figured it was DLC for 3.

So who's got it? I picked it up for the PS3 on Friday and I've been having a blast with it. It's a much more immediate story than 3, and the main character Edward is the most unique Assassin so far in that as far as I'm into in the game, he's still not really a true Assassin, he's still a pirate looking to make a score and is loosely aligned with the Order to get that done. It is more of a pirate game than an AC game, as that's what most of the activities focus on, and quite a bit of the story so far but when it is more Assassin-oriented, there is a good implementation of stealth as an option. The Jackdaw's a great addition to the game, it's almost seamless who you transition from land-based gameplay to the Naval stuff, which is a lot of fun and makes you feel badass, jumping from ship to ship, and taking down forts. There's a ton to find around the world, and I like the randomness where you can leave an island that's deserted, but come back at some future point to find it's inhabited by pirates, or there's two ships fighting around it, or a big galleon that's been grounded on the beach. I also find the present day aspect of the game to be a pretty refreshing change of pace, as instead of Desmond, you're playing the role of a researcher for Abstergo's entertainment division, who want to use Edward's life as the basis for a movie, and you get to see some funny meta humour about game development and there's hacking(some required, but largely optional) that you unwittingly do for the Assassins, and it unlocks a bunch of files about the backstory of the series and possible future installments. It's a lot more lighthearted and less intrusive than that stuff was before, for sure.
Some complaints though:
-ENOUGH with the follow/eavesdrop missions already. They're annoying.
-As are the Gunners, who are basically sniper guards posted up high who can see you from a good distance away and make stealth much harder
-Controlling your fleet (basically a navy themed version of the thing they've been doing since Brotherhood where you send your recruited Assassins on missions that run in the background, only instead of Assassins, it's with a fleet made up of the captured ships you've chosen to keep) requires an online connection, for no reason. It's ridiculous.
-Some initial syncing issues with my UPlay Rewards not showing up in game after I renewed them
-Some restrictive "do it this exact way or instantly fail" missions
-Some Elite ship upgrades not being available because it's telling me I don't have the plans I need...even though I do.

Good to read your thoughts on the game, Stu.

It is getting awesome reviews from what I've read so far (I even read one that said it might be the best Assassin's Creed yet) so there is definitely high praise for it. I will be picking it up whenever I finish GTA V and Bioshock Infinite. Which should be sometime in 2015.
