I assume most of us are going to pull an unusual amount of hours of gaming the day AC3 comes out, and probably in the coming days aswell.

What type of snacks or drinks are you going to have to keep you energized, and are there any you would recommend for a long session of Assassin's Creed awesomeness?

I'm probably going with chocolate and some kind of soda, I'm going to allow myself to be unhealthy on that day :rolleyes:

I'm going all healthy, a large amount of fruits, vegetables and water.

I'll probably be playing more at night because I'm busy in the day now, so that'll involve something with sugar or caffeine. I'm usually a very healthy person, but everything's permitted so whatever.

I lift in the morning, so I need the calories if anything. Pizza rolls and Chiptole burritos!

I take it that the Forum Managers might say this, so I'll snipe it in first:

"Make sure to take a break every couple of hours from the screen and get something to eat and drink. It'll give your eyes a relax period and more energy to carry on playing. :D"

Personally, I sat through ACR non-stop for hours on end, and I sort of regret it. I will attempt a speed run, but I'll take the advice I added above.

I should be getting the week ACIII is released off work so I'll probably stock up on snacks beforehand, I usually go with Mountain Dew, Pepsi/Coke and Doritos when I plan to do a lot of gaming. :p

I'm gonna need lots of snacks. I'll be playing for a few days straight in the hopes that Connor's free running abilities will rub off on me through the Bleeding Effect. How it'll actually end up, though, is probably going to be me falling out of the tree in the park down the street from me a couple hundred times until I give up and realize my Xbox is not an Animus.

Are you trying to tell me that the guy who told me it was an animus was lying!

Flaming Hot Cheetos would be on my list, were they available in Canada.

I may need to make a trip down to the States just to pick up a few bags!

I would so much rather have the Freedom Edition. But I had to be born in the US, so all I get is a stupid flag, a statue, and a belt buckle. I ain't paying for that crap.

Previous AC games? As much Borderlands 2 as you can cram into a month? Maybe XCOM Enemy Unknown for a couple of weeks, hehe. ;D

I just downloaded the Da Vinci Disappearance and was pleased with that much content for only 10 dollars. Might pick up Borderlands 2. Frankly, Assassin's Creed is my favorite game series of all time, I've had so many great moments playing it, I can't wait for Assassin's Creed 3. I'm worried playing it anymore would make me TOO excited.

I've resisted playing any AC games for months now so the experience will be as fresh as possible. I have borderlands 2 rented right now, been playing that & I'll get dishonored when it comes out, that one should keep me well occupied til AC3!

As for gaming snacks, I like to avoid getting anything that does muck up my hands & such. I usually eat between sessions, but sometimes I'll get jalepeno cheddar cheetos & eat them with a fork or spoon so I don't get residue on my hands! HAHAHA. I drink alot of vitamin waters or plain water, maybe a Rockstar Iced Coffee once in a while... Health Shmealth...

This is my plan. At approx 7:30 pm October 30th, my exam will be finished, and that's the last one. AC3 comes out on the 31st in australia, so i'll go home, sleep, wake up at 8, drive to the shops get AC3, while i'm there i'm going to stock up on steaks,chicken, rice, dressings, HEAPS of chocolate..and that's about it.

I've thought this through many times.

I don't play the game on long sessions. Maybe 1 hour at the most, but usually about 40 or so minutes.

I usually eat breakfast, dinner, and stuff if I do eat during a game.

I drink tea or bottled water if I'm thirsty.
