    Gamers we need to make a stand. Did you know this game is going to have micro transactions? The very thing ruining the gaming community is now going to be part of a AAA console game. We proved as a gaming community that if enough of us voice our opinions it actually can change something. Of course im talking about when microsoft tried to throw out hard copies of games and go all digital with the release of xbox one. Enough people stood up and shouted (or sat down and typed...) NO NO NO. Before we knew it Microsoft was changing their minds and we got what we wanted as a gaming community. Well its time to stand up or sit down at your computer and fight the good fight again. Micro transactions and pay to win has to stop. Do not purchase or support games that allow you to pay real money to get better especially after you have already purchased the game for 60 bucks. sad sad times these are for old school gamers such as myself...

    I'm sad because I just know they're going to kill her off at some point.

    I have to say, as much as I LOVED the detour Ubisoft did into the Golden Age of Piracy in Black Flag, going back to the core of Assassin's Creed and and rebuilding the basic mechanics was probably a smart move. Unity may not have ships and naval combat, but that was something that made AC4 unique, so I'm fine if it stays that way. To be honest, I haven't played much of AC, and I only got AC4 on account of it being an awesome pirate game. Black Flag did however make me open to the prospect of more Assassin's Creed, and Unity looks pretty fantastic so far. I'll be keeping a close eye on this one.

    Give AC2 a go, a little clunky compared to 4, but still my favourite.
  • winner2 - July 29, 2014 2:54 p.m.

    Agreed with Balaska, that's what this is going to feel most similar to, and 2 was the best in the series so far.
  • N7Spartan95 - July 29, 2014 10:10 p.m.

    So I've heard. I'll make sure to give it a go if I ever get the chance. The Renaissance may not be as alluring to me as the Golden Age of Piracy, but I've only heard good things about AC2. Plus from what I can gather, Ezio is hands down the most badass assassin in any of these games. As badass as Edward was, that's gotta say something. As a side note, what do you think about setting the language to Italian with English subtitles? I just think it'd be more authentic for the characters to speak it since they're in... well, Italy. Is the voice acting still good?
  • winner2 - July 29, 2014 10:47 p.m.

    I was just thinking of doing that with French for Unity today, coincidentally. And Ezio is absolutely the most badass so far, and the most interesting character IMO. The voice acting is perfectly fine if not very good, I've never heard anyone think it was even mildly annoying enough to bring up in a discussion so I'm going to assume that everyone else who has also played it thought it was fine to great as well. None of the characters have any weird standout moments of awkwardness, and you never really feel like a character you interact with is just a plot progression point to reach on the map. That being said, I think the Italian/English-subs is a fine idea if the English voice acting just doesn't click for you. They do this style though that seems kind of unique to Ezio's games where the characters will speak in English but occasionally use Italian for emphasis on a certain thought/phrase, kind of like how people will revert to their native language at times in real life. It worked for me, I liked it, but I'd definitely give the Italian a try and see how it feels. I did that in Russian for Metro Last Light and it was amazing, so it's something to keep in mind for immersion.

    I'd like to think that the whole "no female assassin" in AC fiasco was really just them trying super hard not to let slip this new character ahead of time. Like they told the Ubi employee who took all that heat: "Please just bear with it for the moment. If you tell them that there really is a female assassin in the game you'll blow our next reveal. Seriously don't screw this up for us."
  • pl4y4h - July 25, 2014 9:10 p.m.

    Even still, I don't really understand why it's a fiasco. If this had been the first AC game ever with a female, maybe I could see it, but Liberation does exist.
  • Balaska - July 28, 2014 5:20 a.m.

    I did wonder about that, Liberation was a multiplat release, why did no-one call Ubi out the instant they stated it would take a million man hours to create a female assassin model. No pun intended with the man hours bit BTW
  • N7Spartan95 - July 29, 2014 10:56 a.m.

    I'm pretty sure people DID call them out. In fact, one of their former animators said that their whole excuse was bullshit, pointing out that Aveline shares more of Connor Kenway's animations than EDWARD KENWAY does.
  • FoxdenRacing - July 29, 2014 10:21 a.m.

    I think it only became a big deal because of the way Ubi handled the situation. Had they come right out and said "The game's not finished yet", they could've bought themselves some time to respond to the obvious questions that weren't obvious to somebody. Instead, they deflected every way they could, making weak excuses like "But animating different models is hard" and "But then we'd have to pay two voice actors!"

    it will be very interesting if they somehow connect watch dogs story with AC series and make the watch dogs protagonist a assassin since they both use high tech gadget and since its ovious that the ac story is slowly but surely heading to the modern age this combination will realy be great and they should add some horse race in AC
  • gamertaboo - June 26, 2014 1:28 p.m.

    There is a lot of speculation about Watch Dogs originally being Desmond's present day game, from the first couple of AC games the modern day story with Desmond felt as though it was ramping up to Present Day Assassin's Creed where Desmond would be taking on modern Templars and whatnot. Then AC went the way they did with Desmond because there's way more money to be made on reliving the past... There are times when I would like to believe this...IDK
  • leonardosky - June 20, 2014 1:05 p.m.

    this series is seriously flawed from the beginning. its a assassin game yet they only realise now that they should add a crouch feature and the battle system its so easy to kill a batallion of soldier even though they said that they make ac4 combat much harder its still realy easy specialy after getting all the upgrade and this is the only game that i know that doesn't have a boss battle they should atleast made some templar boss that the main character can fight in not those easy to kill target and why every time a new AC comes out they take out some great feature of the previous game like the ability to buy every part of your armor or the ability to defend your camp in ac revelation and the ability to buy some structures in the city and earn money from it and the ac3 feature that enable you to build a small community and gain something from it afterwards. every AC release from 2 to 4 feels like there is something missing everytime

    Some of us like both RPG style games with big boss fights and whatnot, as well as the Assassin's Creed style. I agree that they could stand to make it more difficult, however that's part of what's so appealing I believe. You can be this badass Assassin going around doing whatever you want, and the character is very trained so can obviously take down groups of generically trained guards. As for the key assassination's, I think you only need to look at real historical assassinations to see that it isn't that hard for one person to get close to someone important while putting their own life on the line to take that person out. Now days people wouldn't get away with that stuff but back then they could. Plus in all the old Assassin's Creed games you could take out your targets without ever alerting the guards most of time IIRC. The new added stealth mechanics sound awesome to me, and are a welcome change, along with the added difficulty.

    Sentences dude, sentences.
  • kevin-thomas - June 13, 2014 5:30 p.m.

    How about an assassins creed set at the fall of the roman empire at the late 4th-early 5th century because the Templars had influenced the Romans and the fall of the Romans could have had lots of tie ins with the assassins and the player could be from Visigoth or Vandal groups that were attacking at the time. or maybe be part of the Huns even.
