Interviews on top of some pictures? (Haven't seen them)

Is that what they are?

Disappointing to hear they cut off the scalping mechanic though.

This interview got me 10x more psyched for the game then I was before! It brought up a lot of issues I had been worrying about and completely put them to rest. It gave a ton of great detail into the game and managed to do so without repeating too much while still bringing up seemingly small but important pieces of the game. The amount of realism and detail that seems to have been incorporated into AC3 is something I have ALWAYS wanted to see in video games, especially in regards to animation. I am so excited to see what AC3 will look like.

First they said scalping was scrapped because of historical inaccuracy (Mohawks allegedly did not scalp), now it's because it they are scared of lawsuits (because seriously, plunging a sword in one's head and picking them up with the sword still in their skull or knocking someone over and stomping their face are not brutal situations at all...)
Anyway, I think they could have kept it, but not as a thing you can do on EVERY dead enemy - i.e. each scalping is a part of a mission,
Other than that, **** I am so hyped. I wonder if the camera changes to an Uncharted-esque chase sequence angle when you run through somebody's bedroom.

Hopefully looting bodies is gone. I thought it was good at first, but then I found that I always spent about 20 seconds walking around looking for money after every fight. They should either make looting quicker, or make it so that Connor automatically reaches down and grabs the money as you walk over the body.

Animations on par, if not surpassing, Uncharted series? Oh Gods, yes.

Dunno why, but natural and fluid animations in games always makes me a happy camper. I know nobody likes stiff animations, but this extra mile they're taking is worth so much to admirers like me.

I haven't been around here in a while (Mass Effect 3) and I'm so glad I came back to this. 5 minutes into the first video I was giddy like a little school child on Christmas morning. I simply can't control my excitement. Especially it taking place mostly in beantown. LOVE IT!

One thing that made me nervous however, they needed to add things to remind us we were playing an AC game. Frankly this frightens me a bit.

Anyway, I love you Ubisoft.

That was a weak excuse presented by Ubisoft as to not sound like wimps, but now they look like even bigger wimps for just not being upfront. Don't get me wrong. It probably isn't historically accurate, however; neither is this ****ing war between the Asssasins and Templars; Leonardo Da'Vinci being some sort of over the top comedic figure isn't exactly historically accurate either.

So you'd rather play another boring ACII clone with redundant, un-needed additions to keep the game "fresh"?

Blind2Society
03-29-2012, 03:41 AM
Clearly you don't like the AC franchise. Perhaps you should find a game series you do like and post on their forums?

I really don't see a need to explain myself to you. I've posted my feelings on the franchise as a whole here many time before. If you would like to know how I feel about it instead of assuming I want a crap game, you can search through my posts yourself. Thank you.

Wow, easy there, bro. I love Assassin's Creed and I felt like Assassin's Creed II was a real step-forward for the series, but frankly I--like many gaming journalists apparently--felt like the last two games were nothing more than quick cash grabs. Are they good games? Yes. Of course they are. They're built off of ACII which is a superb video game and they add several new features, both hit and miss. It's not really so much that they're bad games as it is that there can be too much of a good thing. That is precisely the case with the Ezio-trilogy. Brotherhood could've been DLC and Revelations story-wise was fairly pointless. And I actually really like Revelations in terms of gameplay and the multiplayer modes.

actually they said that they also didn't want it in there because they thought about all the sadistic players out there and how they would post on youtube, 10 minutes or so of them scalping countless of npcs. I think it is a smart thing that they did this, that's the same as how skyrim has the cut off ppls heads and yea that doesn't seem really bad when you play it but there are many sadistic gamers out there that make it a sport. Like the vid with a house full of heads

People should be able to play games the way they want; Ubisoft is just trying to avoid any more controversy than they're already going to have for portraying people like George Washington, perhaps, not in such a flattering light.

Funny since Assassin's Creed II is one of my favorite games ever; I'm inclined to agree with you. My point had to do with the redundancy of the series since Assassin's Creed II's release. Not starting with.

Blind2Society
03-29-2012, 03:54 AM
Well, apparently I completely agree with you. However, a complete change to the point where you need intermittent leaps of faith to remind you that you're playing AC? Granted it was a vague statement, still seems a bit drastic. That being said I'm still overly excited for what they have shown so far.

AdamXEve
03-29-2012, 03:56 AM
Well, obviously, they want to nod at the games that really set this one up to be what it appears to be. A revolution in gaming. If anything, I share in your excitement and fear of disappointment.

Shane has eased my fears about the game mechanics with this interview. I was afraid that the fluidity would be non-existant when running through the trees and such. I'm a little more hyped for the game now, just hope Ubi doesn't take my excitement level down a notch by not giving N.A. a good CE.

Agreed that Ubi hasn't been that bad with the lack of CE's we get, but the Art Director of the Assassin's Creed Encyclopedia at Ubiworkshop said that there are some awesome Collector's Editions for ACIII in the works, but then again he could've been talking about the 3 CE's that Europe is getting.

At least the teddy bear would be a hell of a lot better than the cheaply made jack-in-the-box that came in the Brotherhood CE. That's if it were a Boyd's Bear teddy.

Scalping did happen among: native americans and colonists. Some of it was due to anger. Some was a sign of proof of a individual being killed. So scalping is real.

Please explain to me Ubisoft. How on God's green earth did you created a scalping screen and later have a change of heart?. what's the **** is wrong with you people? we know scalping did existed before and during and probably after the American Revolutionary War. I know what i'd said in one of mine post stating that it's Ubi's game and they'll do what do to it according how they see fit.

I'm a little disappointed after watching the second part of the video knowing scalping won't be in it. I'd also stated that, Ubi should keep the scalping to a small detail rather than having Connor doing the deed. Maybe it's your own doing creating Connor have to scalp everytime, however i still feel strongly scalping should stay. In a very subtle way of course. Please reconsider about scalping in the game.

Jesus, does it really matter that you can't cut and tear someone's scalp off in a game? It's a game, that wouldn't remove or add any pleasure at all unless you're into defocating corpses. Sure it was done back then, but so was nailing prostitutes, and is that in the game? Relax a bit and let them go through the choice of removing scalping. It's not something the developers wanted to see being done in the game. No need to attack the company for removing a small aspect of a game that pretty much had no mechanic in it. All it would do is just add to the economic system. Regardless, the game will be great with or without scalping. Assassinating people is still there.

here's what i don't understand. Ubisoft created something they felt will have somewhat controversial issue(ie scalping) before hand. They went on and showcase only to a small group that attend. If they knew this ahead of time, why even bother show the demo/footage at all. Better yet why even created i the first place altogether? (OXM) Official Xbox Magazine stated earlier that there will be scalping in the game:
http://www.oxm.co.uk/40573/features/seven-things-ubisoft-cut-from-assassins-creed-3/.

it just seem Ubi is kinda flip-flopping on the issue.

@eagleforlife1
correct. I'm fine with his opinion. We're all here to expresses our feeling about the game. No i don't advocating scalping in real life. Since ACIII takes place in AR with a half Native/half English main character. As historically correct telling of the story as possible. They consorted with historians for facts if i'm recalling from one interview. i would've thought scalping would bring a deeper, more truth story telling than not. I don't see the harm in showing it at all.

sure there will always idiots on youtube makes matter worse. As long as Ubi's intentions meant well and good faith. There's no problem putting it out.

EmmaBemma

Not bothered about scalping. Anyway, it's not exactly low-key, as an assassin, to keep your target's scalps.

Kind of shame the rebuild aspect has gone... I was kind of hoping we'd be able to help build up the cities (rather than renovating). However, that may not fit well with Connor's character. I'm hoping we're not too rich, actually.

Game sounds amazing. I'm glad the templars are getting expanded on, rather than just being 2D baddies. I'm hoping not all of us redcoats are totally bad guys either ;)

Yeah look man, I don't blame you for being mad or disappointed that they removed something from a game that you would've enjoyed. Both Brotherhood and Revelations had some cool things I wanted but they seem to have removed from the game and much like tonnes of other games out there. And sorry If my tone was a little drastic, I wasn't angry or anything. I just find it really odd and a little annoying that a lot of people are causing comotion over the fact the ubisoft removed an aspect of the game that changed little of the overral outcome. If they removed something like canoeing or the rope dart, I assure you that I would definately be rather annoyed too. But yes, everyone is entitled to want whatever they please, that was just my (misleading) reply. I think the lack of AC3 info is getting to me! :P

If truely confirm that there's no scalping at all. Then there's nothing left to discuss on this matter. No, i won't be angry. Just that, the game would do justice and add some truth history telling since I was never taught about scalping when i was in grade school and in High School. We never did any profound discussion. Well, i guess to this day. Scalping, no matter which parties were involved. It's too taboo of a subject even i video game. Ripping out your opponent's heart, shooting up civilians, bad languages are all okay. Not to mentioned half naked women pictorials.

I think the lack of AC3 info is getting to me! :P
