Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag

Post by Trey-Caige II on Wed Mar 06, 2013 1:48 pm

...am I the only one who heard this announcement and just went "meh"?. The idea of pirates is cool, but I think AC needs a break. I'm more excited for the new Thief tbh.

No, the general reaction to ACIV has been "meh," honestly. I couldn't care less than I do about the AC series at this point, even though I used to love it. The CoD effect has taken hold on Ubisoft and I really will not support dropping quality and length of the games for annualized releases.

They didn't release it early because they wanted to. They released it early because hackers spilled the beans.

Well I don't think they would've purchased nearly as much TV ad time if this were spur of the moment. It seemed pretty deliberate, which makes me think that the game was discovered and leaked just before it was going to be officially revealed anyway, sort of like pretty much any leaked game ever.

Yeah longest in memory is all stars which was 4 months before reveal and was dismissed by many as fake.

True, but Ubisoft also isn't the kind of company to keep secrets. Remember that the game is based on revealing secrets so. By denying it they would go against the very foundation of Assassin's Creed. Also, every AC fan boy around the world was marking it as real so Ubisoft didn't really have a choice. Unless they wanted millions of raging raging fan boys down their throats demanding AC4.

I'm surprised "meh" has been the general reaction o.O that right there says AC needs a break for a bit. Oh god here's hoping Watch_Dogs doesn't become the new AC worry

I think I'll like AC4:Black Flag more than I liked AC3.
Edward looks 10x better than Connor in pretty much everything.

Why is it that everyone in Connor's family is cooler than Connor?

I always thought AC games were meh and overrated... AC is becoming the next CoD, everytime the same thing all over again. I have to admit that I like the characters of AC, but I just hate the gameplay.. I find it so boring... Black Flag? No thank you. I'm done with AC games..

Personally, I like the pirate setting. But, I don't like how AC has it's name just slapped on. I'd personally would like to see some more development on Connor but whatever. No big deal.

Ninjas would have made more sense as an AC game than pirates. Lmao

B*tches love ninjas. ;p

I was just so perplexed as to why they'd choose Pirates of all things. They're thieves, not assassins.

Funny thing is it didn't have to be a Kenway.

Seeing as they're going back in time again as Mr. Eduardo over there is Hatham's fasha. They could have made an entirely new character and done one in Japan. This looks like an excuse to one-up the Pirates of the Caribbean games... which really won't take much effort anyway...

...I actually like the pirate theme, personally. I mean, don't get me wrong, a Feudal Japan AC game based on ninjas or samurai would make me jizz in my pants if I saw the reveal trailer, but I think pirates are pretty cool as well. Although another theme I'm curious about is an AC game taking place during Medieval times... Really, a bunch of time periods would be awesome to base off of.

Technically... Altair was around the time knights(well, crusaders) existed... so I believe they already covered Medieval Times. Even Ezio's experienced that.

Actually, it took place during the Italian Renaissance, which was actually right after the Middle Ages ended. Considering how the time-frame between AC3 and AC4 is extremely close, I think the Middle Ages/Medieval Times getting chosen is still likely.

If that ever was the case, I'd take that over pirates. Pirates just doesn't make sense.

I don't really see why pirates don't make sense. I mean, yeah, I get that they're mainly intro treasure, pillaging, and epic boat fights, still. They're iconic "warriors" in history that are well known have vast legends, characters, etc. that can we successfully woven into a video game story. Yes, there are better choices, but I don't think it's bad at all. But that's just me.

So am i the only one here that's excited for this game.  Let me get this out of the way right now.  I have never played an assassin's creed and have never been interested in playing one.  What i'm super excited about is that we're finally getting an impressive looking pirate games.  There are barely any video games about them (and if they are they suck) and i want to loot ships, dig up treasure, and fight the royal navy!  As i was reading the comments and people were talking about ninjas, there are so many games already about ninjas.  Let's give the pirates a shot!
