Thought it was funny. Of course if you give free pizza and drinks to "die hard" fans, they won't say anything negative! Amazing.

Can't wait for that IGN review, lol.

I don't know what I expected from you, IGN, but this definitely wasn't it. You never cease to amaze me.

Amazing isn't it? IGN normally don't ever seem to have anything great to say about AC games, but since it's their IGN First feature game it's been nothing but praise, praise, praise.

The majority of fans enjoy their game and dont spend time talking about how much they love a game. Simple as that.

lol at the "cockney" accents :p

I think events like this and promotional deals such as IGN First will always exist, it's up to us as consumers to be smart.

IGN has never been the most unbiased source for reviews anyway, not just in the case of AC.

However, having actually been to two such events, I think you're giving people too little credit. Yes, there will always be people who are just wowed by the experience and attach those good feelings to the game, but there were plenty of fans at E3 and Gamescom who remained critical and scrutinizing even after Ubisoft wined and dined them. ;)

They also clearly edit the interviews to only focus on the positives. I was interviewed at E3 but they never released that because I didn't sound super enthused, lol.

Even after all the time I spent playing Unity, I could barely understand those thick French accents.

I am looking forward to the British soldiers with the big hats. When I was little I would put olives on my fingers and pretend they were British soldiers.

This is a joke right?

Played it, loved it, pre-ordered it. Sorry to anyone waiting to get on the game in the queue behind me but I had to stop and look around, several times from the roof and the trees and inside the building with a guarded door... the game looked great to me... I specifically wanted to test the combat, I'm a stealth player by heart but I wanted to see if it was as I had heard.... it was better :D and as demo sections are usually made from the early working parts I expect it will look even better but definitely good enough for me to make me buy immediately. I didn't get any pizza ;)

You, sir, have a wonderful imagination.
