View Full Version : So when is everyone "Going dark"? *Possible Spoilers*

Just started thinking recently about when would be the best time to go dark and hide myself from any and all spoilers that will eventually spread through the internet as we come closer to the date we have all been waiting for.

Usually I would stay away from any thing AC related a couple of weeks before release so the story isn't spoiled at all for me but with all these gameplay videos just beginning to flow through differen't forums and Youtube, I can't help but wonder should I stay away from these forums and others like earlier this year?

So when you all planning to "hide" from the eventual flow of spoilers to come in the Road to ACR's release?

The very first second of November 15 (in whatever time zone the game first comes out).

I don't actually mind spoilers as such, so far we've just had 2 random mashups of gameplay, nothing actually imperitive to the storyline.

The real spoilers are the Desmond bits and what the weapon of Masyaf is that Ezio is going to find.

As soon as I see someone posting something like "Desmond Gameplay" or I hear of bigger videos coming out, I think I'll lay off.

Although I'm finding it difficult because things are looking sooooooooo good.

I think I'll disappear by the 2nd of November. Uncharted 3's going to be released that day, and I have 7 exams between the 4th and the 18th. That's gonna make me avoid spoilers...

Haters gonna hate, but my disappearance might be 08/11/11

Yes, MW3. Shoot me?

EDIT: Then 11/11/11 - Skyrim

And there's Arkham City.

I have been going Grey for some time, Just in case some information/game play comes up on the Dens, but I am thinking it is best to go dark right now since many threads have spoiler tags in the name.

I also thought about disappearing a while before ACR's release but I just can't stay away of the new trailers 'n stuff. I just can't help it.

However I'll definitely disappear from 15th November to the time I'll finish 100% of ACR, that's for sure.

i considered "going dark" back when AC2 first came out on consoles, that lasted all of about....10 minutes, until i found a walkthrough on youtube, same with ACB, and will most likely be the same with ACR.

dewgel

I'm with Jexx, spoilers don't bother me. Although I wish someone spoilt Brotherhood for me, cos I was really hyped for that thinking it was going to be epic, expecting the epic battle between Cesare and Ezio, which was a total let down.

I don't know why but I expected Ezio to die in Brotherhood.. hmm

There's loads of games to keep people busy till it comes out.

By the way, for those who say there's loads of spoilers videos out now, please link me? Because I see no spoilers? Everything so far has been little mashups and gameplay, nothing major to the storyline.

PS PS PS. Escoblades told me on Twitter there's an embargo for those like IGN, Machinima and other reviewers which gets lifted on Monday or Tuesday (tomorrow or Tuesday,a ctually) so for anyone wanting to avoid spoilers, I'd probably disappear then, because that's when Ubisoft are going to let people freely talk about what they've seen.

The second I see a thread that might possibly have a major plot spoiler, I'm out till I finish the game. I made the mistake of looking through the Forums during ACB and had some major things spoiled.

Spoilers generally don't really bother me either. However, I'll still spend most of my free time playing ACR.

I'm OK with minor spoilers but I remember last year on here some titled there thread something like *SPOILER* <span class="ev_code_WHITE">"LUCY DIES?!"</span> *SPOILER* or along those lines, I just hope nobody includes names of characters in their threads after release for a while.

I'm super careful to not be spoiled.

Although I couldn't help myself but to watch those leaked videos of Desmond and Lucy under the sanctuary last time.

I'm gonna try to not do that this time. With Batman and Uncharted coming out the time should fly.

It's not a case of the game getting leaked, most reviewers have the game already (Blades included, although I don't think he's allowed to admit it)

According to the embargo terms, all reviewers who have the copies are under strict orders not to reveal anything until tomorrow or Tuesday. I think he said something like IGN had the exclusive preview on it where they could release certain footage.

So, if anyone is wanting to avoid spoilers, I'd go dark later today or tomorrow, because expect alot of stuff to be appearing.

kriegerdesgottes
10-09-2011, 10:51 AM
I would say to avoid Youtube in the two weeks beforehand. Last year Zwoosh posted a bunch of videos of the hideout and the Brutus armor and stuff we hadn't seen yet because he managed to get the game early somehow. There's no way I could see those videos and not watch them. I'm not really a big spoiler person anyway so it's not a big deal but just sayin. Someone will get an early copy from some retailer (probably someone who works there) and it'll be on Youtube.

There are no real spoilers imo. even if a video shows some things from the game its more like a teaser since I the whole story is important in AC. Of course after 15. November its not recommanded to watch YT videos if u didnt play the game yet. But before that day im happy about every piece of information about the game that comes out.

I think I'm going to have to strongly consider going dark on this site at least around the weekend before the 15th. I don't mind seeing a lot of gameplay beforehand and don't even mind knowing some elements of Ezio's story, but I really want to experience as much of Desmond's segments fresh if I can. Last year gameplay videos started coming out the Friday before the game did, and even watching some of those at different points from Sequence 1 to 3 didn't ruin anything for me. What made me mad was seeing thread titles on here around Sunday or Monday before the game specifically saying stuff about the cliffhanger ending of the game. And it wasn't just one, but multiple threads saying varying degrees of detail about what happened to a certain someone.

I would also advise anyone to stay away from the wiki, even if you are just researching something you think is only from a previous game. I was able to shake off the spoilers from thread titles here because I still didn't know a lot of the details behind the ending, so I just considered it more hype to make me interested in the ending. But then while I was about 2/3 of the way through the game just taking my time, I decided to read up on the Apple on the wiki, and right there out of nowhere came a paragraph describing Brotherhood's ending in more detail than I already knew!

It will probably be worse this year because the encyclopedia is coming out around the same time as the game, and if anyone gets that and starts reading it there will probably be updates to the wiki spoiling things and topics here with their titles saying stuff like, "Does {character} really do {action}?" It's going to be a dangerous time, and it will be hard to resist the temptation to stay away.

Yes, but even if you read only certain threads it might not work. People have a annoying habit of putting spoilers in their titles so even if you don't read it, kit could spoil it for you. That's why I am abandoning the forums from one week out until I finish.

Yes, they do. And most blow it. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/34.gif Probably me as well but for some they do accomplish the feat of being totally surprised. For me Brotherhood since I didn't know it came out until a few days after release but now I know better. Most likely I won't make it a week and blow it by reading a review from IGN or Gamespot. But I will try not too. Only time will tell for us all.

Now I will only watch videos uploaded by the Assassin's Creed YouTube channel and I'll try to stay away from any thread about anything from Revelations. Previously I said I was going to leave the forum the day before the release, but now I decided to stay away from the forums two weeks in advance and I'll come back after I beat the game.

I'm looking through thread and all I see is:
*spoiler*!!!!!! I've also seen spoilers in topic names already. :/
As NewBlade200 said, if you want to avoid spoilers, you should stay away from the forums two weeks in advance.

I will be going dark a week before release and untill I finish the SP side of the game.

But I will still frequently visit the MP forum, just not the SP.
