(AC3 tour bus stopped by my univeristy today)

and it was awesome!!!

the ship is actually pretty hard to control. the response time is pretty delayed, and it cannot turn very well

but it was so much fun! it felt very authentic
and it felt very scary when you were about to ram another boat

there are a few different types of ammunition for the side cannons

and a smaller swivel cannon that you aim on your own..

it was quite tough to figure out the exact trajectory of the side cannons...but it was really fun

so if any of you are skeptical, you will not be dissapointed

yeah they teamed up with Rock the Vote and they are visiting many US colleges.

i preorded, got a tshirt, a inflatable tomahawk, and was the first on my campus to play the demo!

it was freaking sweet

I also talked to this girl who worked for Ubisoft and she said she goes to all the events (E3, PAX, etc)
and she said she's interacted with UbiGabe and others! I was very jealous of her job.

Awesome, you lucky duck :)

What console did you play it on?

playstation 3... so it was a bit odd lol (i only play 360)

but the r1 and l1 were fire buttons.
you steered with the left thumbstick. to access your inventory you pressed r2

and to aim the swivel cannon with one of the thumbsticks cant remember

you could change your speed by hitting x or square

didnt get to play as connor much (wish i spent more time fooling around on the ship)

i cant say i was overly impressed with the graphics (although it was just a demo)

very similar to revelations quality

from what they told me I dont think they are headed to NJ anytime soon but I can look around for ya

EDIT: so Im pretty sure there is more than one bus because the bus that came to Ohio State (my university) has attended any of the destinations on this list http://www.rockthevote.com/about/press-room/press-releases/rock-the-vote-announces-road-trip-2012.html

Oh how lucky you are! A tour bus probably wouldn't even fit on the half the roads here anyway...

Well it was really awesome, and now all I want to do is play AC3.... 1 month :(

Ha! yeah. My university is actually quite huge. It's its own little city. 60,000 students. We're right outside the capital of the state, but there is definately tons of breathing room, and room for buses lol

chuffed? what does that mean?

It's a British term, it means to be happy or pleased

When you say response time was delayed, that could be due to the TV.

pretty sure it wasnt. when you drive boat it isnt like driving a car. the response to your turn is delayed. it isnt very precise. but thats how it should be in the game. so i was very pleased with the authenticity.

and yes i was quite chuffed.:)

The thing that most interesting is if the boat sailing can be done every time and not for a few times.
