R3's AnimiCast Thread! Listen or Submit Questions Here
Hello everybody! New Domain! AnimiCast.com
I've started making podcasts that will probably focus on Assassin's Creed multiplayer on my site on a bi-monthly basis. I've decided to name the podcast "AnimiCast." It was somewhat inspired by the similarly community-run, independent, and non-commercial "PolyCast" podcasts.
I'm setting this thread up for questions, comments, requests, and announcements regarding new episodes.
The first episode was recorded weeks ago and featured myself as host, WHU Honey Badger aka "WayneCain2" as guest host, and ThePr0paganda and cdshefke as guests. Thanks to all of the participants for agreeing to the podcast and for your patience and participation.
Enjoy and feel free to download and listen!
Link to episode 1: "Smoke Gets In Your Mute"...
And I will try and make it monthly. Hopefully I can fix the RSS so that it can go to iTunes. If hosting ends up being a problem, I'll also post about hosting changes here.

Mission complete then.

Yeah probably going to rush the next episode.

If spots are open for volunteer appearances, I'm up for it.
here are some questions i asked for the previous podcast.
how will the multiplayer on the vita work? will it utilize crossplay function between PS3/Vita so that some players play on the PS3 while other play on the vita?
will vita animi avatars (personas) be playable/unlockable in the AC3 and vice versa?
Will the Templar Grade Pyramid return? and the prestige system? Perhaps a hybrid of both?
What how will the relics that are being announce (from preorder bonuses and) work? Basically how will relic work?
Will characters have more advanced customization (perhaps more advanced than Revelations) but still retain their uniqueness in weapons and kill animations like in Brotherhood?
Are the AI targets in the Wolf Pack mode multiplayer characters or are they just randomized NPC/soldiers from the single player?
Characters have already been shown to have huge customization compared to earlier games. The Nightstalker has about 9-10 different facemasks you can unlock, one of which looks like a Renegade knock-off.
They are multiplayer characters, and at a certain level they are a character that can only be unlocked by winning the round, giving players a reason to play wolfpack at least once.
I just wanted to remind people that I'm not from Ubisoft so, if you have questions about AC3 I'll use all of the sources that I can find.
What would be a good use for the "Super Morph" streak...? Assuming that streaks are the same as AC:R but I guess that is yet to be confirmed... Do you like AC3 personas a bunch more than the AC:R avatars? A fun question: How excited are you for this Animus-whatjoomacallit? The best invention since......... the smartphone?
