OK, for simplicity’s sake (and saving multiple thread about the same subject), I’m creating this thread to gather together all the links to all the previews and reviews that are gonna be released today, in the next few days and later on. Please feel free to add any ones you find/write, but do check that it hasn’t already been put up. I will periodically collect all the links in this post as they are submitted to the thread.

Enjoy!

OK here, we go.

I don't know Infamous. I once traded the God-awful game known as Fable 3 to Gamestop and they gave me Red Dead Redemption AND paid me for it. So I got rid of one game and got a better game plus some money for it.

I know they're a ripoff though, as I've had my fair share of disappointments with them.

No hood off option. Esco commented on it saying that when you're around the Homestead and in certain areas, the hood will be off.

Also.. omg. Some people may begin going dark soon hahaha. **** this is all so juicy looking. The Naval bit in Esco's video had an awesome feel to it, with the music.

Petting dogs was hilarious xD And combat easily looks the best yet.

And the voice acting is fantastic :O

Personally, Platform32's videos posted a couple of pages back are the best. He shows full Homestead mini-games. There's one mini-game where you have to split up a fight between two angry Scotsmen haah.

Also, he mentions you can hire people for your Homestead and actually customise the entire layout of the place?

PS The new Brotherhood feature is awesome, actually choosing thier actions!

COUNTRY GENT

Arriving in the countryside, I feel unprepared, so decide to trade in the coins and items I've collected in Boston for something substantial at a local shop. I buy Connor a natty Charlestown outfit, which has a pleasing red trim, and some extra arrows. There are so many things to buy and trade, it's intimidating, but now I feel ready to take on the wilderness.

1 was what I've said all along. It snaps to the nearest target when you need it to, but you can move the sticks around to adjust your aim as necessary, although I see no reason for changing your aim.

After watching that, If this game doesn't get game of the year, I will be highly surprised. With 3 years of development from such a huge elite team, I would go out and say 9.5 at a minimum. Also they really bulked up connor more than I thought. The dude is a beast

That's completely not what AC is about. There's loads of modern set games with gunplay, GTA for example. AC explores historical and compelling settings, which is its ultimate attraction. Personally, I would hate to see a modern New York setting

Thrilled to hear he chose Victorian London, that is my favourite setting as well! I'd love to see an AC game there.
Btw, does anyone know if the music in this vid is part of the AC3 soundtrack? It's really nice!

DavisP92
09-24-2012, 08:29 PM
Okay so the brotherhood is back, with a whole lot more. I hope we can customize what they wear and what weapons they take better then the past games. I like the idea that each assassin will have their own personality thus have their own strong points/weak points and provide a different option for us to use when calling them.

I like that they finally allow us to take off the hood, I think i'm going to pretty much walk around my village with no hood and maybe if i'm just going hunting for the hometown.

Also it looks like the aiming system is really close to free-aim and looks great.

I really want to see what upgrades we can get, since Alex said that there are alterations we can have for the hidden blade and there upgrade system was suppose to be revamped. A

Did anybody notice that in most of the videos Connor only had one gun on his back rather than two like they've normally shown? I wonder if that's a hint that we can select what weapons we want to carry and not.

CalgaryJay
09-24-2012, 08:32 PM
A very good choice. But I'm wondering he also named modern New York as an option.

I was wondering that too, I'm assuming the interviewer probably asked which he'd take out of those 3 choices. Hence probably why Hutchinson said "...well if I had to choose between only those 3..."

Man I'm so pumped for this game now! At first I was thinking of even skipping most of these vids so as to avoid spoilers, but I couldn't help myself, and now I'm glad that I did. Love how in the Frontier the climbable surfaces look so natural that its hard to even tell where to go at first. I'm willing to bet after a day or 2 you'd have it down pretty solid, just helps add to the realism of the environment.

Out of all those vids, the only thing I can say I was a little disappointed by was seeing how in close combat with animals it shows you a button to press at the exact time, just seems a bit easy to me. I'd rather you just get that in a tutorial type hunting mission, and then just have to perfect it yourself as you go afterwards. But maybe it's tougher to time out than it looks in the vids, we'll see..

09-24-2012, 08:36 PM
Is it me or does the draw distance in these videos seem really small (especially in the cities, the roof of the house across the street is blurred out until you actually jump down and get on it), or is it some type of bad compression?

Yeah, I hope all hunting of large animals(bears,moose) is not just quick time play. I would be fine for the first couple of times to get a hang of it but not every single time it would kind of ruin it.

I doubt we will but I know we will get a new making of AC video by ign. And the first one showed some good stuff


Yeah, I hope all hunting of large animals(bears,moose) is not just quick time play. I would be fine for the first couple of times to get a hang of it but not every single time it would kind of ruin it.

The only reason it would be a quick time is if the animal notices you (that's what i think they are doing) so if you shoot a bear in the head with an arrow then you'll be fine :D

Wow that was cool. I haven't seen that one until now for some reason. See that at the beginning guys? EAST COAST. I told you the eastern seaboard is free roamable too.

They mention Nantucket which is right off the coast of Massachusetts. I don't know if everybody knows all that yet but I'm saying it because it's new to me and I may be really late to the discussion.

The assassins in the colonial times were almost wiped out again (._.). But Connor joins the assassins and recruits people to become assassins, so it's not really a Native American killer on the loose. Also they shouldn't show the assassin guild until the game comes out because that would be a major spoil, well at least for me it would be

Hey Esco, any word on whether or not sailing is free-roam? From the sound of it, the Harbourmaster and Peg Leg give you missions to go out and do, but so far it doesn't sound like free-sailing will be an option. Also, the Matt Turner interview from E3 made it sound like there would be port towns to visit and random ships to encounter. Any more news on that front?

Thanks!

So if it's down only during the homestead, I take it the homestead is its own area or map separate from the Frontier? I was just thinking it was it in the middle of the frontier. If it is a separate map then I guess the video of Connor hunting at night with his hood down is also in the homestead?

Correct. The Homestead is it's own map.

I'm guessing the map is it + surrounding area of woods, because there's some footage of Conner running through the woods with his hood down.

Long-term Assassin's fans will be rewarded, too. One of the game's most interesting - and devious - weapons is the ropedart, which allows you to hang your unfortunate foes from the nearest tree branch. Achilles delivers it to Connor, informing him that it is a product of legendary Chinese assassin Shao Jun, who appeared in Ezio epilogue animation Assassin's Creed: Embers.

Besides his standard outfit, and his Aquila outfit, i only saw the Charlestown one as well. Most of the others are pre order bonuses, and were not available on the build we played.

I like how Connor has to reload the pistol but......... I really think they are putting alot of emphasis on combat when its pretty obvious that the AI is still pretty flawed. How many times do you see bayonets within inches of Connor's back and no attack? I don't get it.

Also, while I love the look of the Frontier and alot of the environments, how hard is it to update swimming to look halfway decent? The white water in swimming and naval combat just doesn't do justice to the way the rest of the game looks. We can do 1000 new animations for Connor and yet neglect this? I know it is small but really? Its akin to Connor running and jumping smoothly through the trees only to get on a horse and have the horse act like a camel.

One of the guys that played it said that in the final version two or three enemies attack at a time. The swimming is updated, and is now more three dimensional. Don't complain about the water, because water is maybe te hardest thing to animate in video games ever, and Ubisoft have managed to make an entire section of the game with it.

Like I said, white water and swimming is super small stuff but no less annoying. Kind of like when you saw Ezio in Revelations and he had those wicked looking amber colored eyes that looked like they belong on a cat more than a human. It's details. No worse than when in Battle of Froli and the attack was underway, the shop owners were still yelling to buy their stuff. Can't complain about the snow.... that looks pretty good.

As for the combat....Yeah it's nice to be able to chain stuff and be downright ridiculously brutal. I really like the idea of not being able to regenerate health when in open conflict. Lots of good stuff. But I haven't seen anything that makes me think the AI is any better at trying to dispose of Connor than any other game in the series. To have a firearm and bayonet of that size on enemies and not get pummeled is not promising. Maybe it will be different when we play...maybe not.

It seems like there is going to be alot more enemy NPCs than in previous games and stealth will definitely be a challenge in alot of situations, which should be fun.

Esco or whoever else may know, I actually have another question for ya. Since the "assassin claw" is gone and free running is now done with only the R1 or RB button, how do you control the speed at which Connor runs? In previous games, the difference between jogging and sprinting was by pressing that extra button, but that is supposedly gone now. From the footage I've seen Connor casually jog around and then other cases he's in a full on sprint so what controls that?

Considering you seem to only know as much as I do on what I asked I'm just going to address the eagle sense part.

I like how the combat is very similar to the Arkham games. There's even an exclamation mark above the attacking soldiers' head letting you know when to counter just like in Batman. I'm curious though about whether or not Ubisoft decided to mimic the gadget use in combat like in Arkham City but with the tools instead. Anyone who has played the game knows that (ps3) L1 plus then either triangle, circle, square, or X serves as a hot key for one other gadgets to mix up the fighting. I hope AC3 does this but with the tools. I've already seen the rope dart in action but not the bow, etc.

"After stealing a horse from a woodland traveler and riding into the streets of Boston for the first time, it seemed obvious that AC3 was pushing the 360's hardware to the limit, as evidenced by the various technical issues the team is likely still working to fix. Graphical pop-in was very noticeable throughout my playthrough, with NPCs and background elements tending to appear and disappear at random. The shadow and shading textures were also very rough, likely in an attempt to save some memory. None of this is game breaking, though it will be interesting to see if anything is done about these issues, or if other versions of the game (PS3, PC) handle them better."

"While wandering the wilderness, a common hazard will be the game's selection of wild animals, ranging from harmless rabbits and raccoons, to deadly wolves and massive bears. Unfortunately, the dramatic man vs. beast encounters are handled with yawn-inducing QTE sequences, reducing the epic confrontations down to a simple reaction tester."

This is exactly what I thought when I saw the animal combat, it looks lacklustre and uninspiring. Nonetheless, at least we still get to fight animals, albeit in a quick-time event.

Yeah, it's disappointing. I think they may have altered the animal combat somewhere during development, since they originally said that the combat system for fighting animals was going to be the same as when you were fighting normal human enemies. Obviously it didn't seem to be working.

Luckily we can still stalk our prey with ranged weapons to avoid the QTEs.

Yeah, but a quick and clean kill for a good pelt would be much the same, once you've got the right weapons equipped. Any other way would get to messy to be useful.

Dude, are you serious? That's far longer than most of the sequences in the three previous games. If you played straight through the main missions, you could easily beat most of the sequences in 30-40 minutes. And now, there's even more side content to distract you ;)

Regardless of how big a game is, I do everything 'in order'. I do everything 'in order' actually, regardless of what it is.

If I play a game like RDR or AC I do things in an orderly fashion. All Story Missions, THEN Viewpoints, then Assassination Targets, then Hunting Missions, etc. I can't go do 2 or 3 hunting missions, 5 story missions, then an assassination target, then cut back and do another hunting mission... confuses me!

I eat the same way. I eat my hamburger first, and NEVER touch my fries. Once I'm done with my burger, then I eat all my fires. And then I drink all my tea. I don't drink, eat burger, eat fries, drink, eat fires, drink, etc... it's out of order.

I don't think that will be a very rewarding way to play this game though. From the sound of it, it seems like a lot of the secrets and stuff interweave between the side missions and the main story. I think breaking your "burger-fries-tea" pattern will pay off in the long run :p

I extracted the audio from the original video, ran it twice through Audacity's noise removal feature, adjusted the modulation a bit, then put it back in my editing software and increased the dB range and volume to 140%. All that before i edited anything.
