Great game, it has me hooked and have played every game in the series.

I fear nothing ... well almost nothing. Big firing platoon with weapons drawn? Grab the tomahawk and kick their ***. However, there is one thing that scares the living hell out of me.

Those little [edit swearing removed] children.
Where revelations had the annoying women shouting "ISSSS there a RRRRReason for this ABUUUUUSE?", I would occassionally throw them into those wooden things that would collapse and kill them. Now there are little orphan kids that keep laughing like maniacs. "whoa, whoa, whoa, WHOA, WHOA, WHOA, WHOA! HAHAHA, WHOA!" and you cannot kill them.

Anyone else annoyed by those little [swearing removed]?

After finishing the game, I was so disappointed and upset. But reading your post made me laugh so hard that tears came out. No joke.

I always like these "anoying" npcs, i think they should have more of them.

AC1 had beggar women, insane people and drunk guys. The rest of the ac games have limited themselves to onetype but in groups of 3 often. i'd much rather they not always use the same.

More variety would make them seem less anoying.

I loved the italian guys with the little guitars. They always came out at the worst time, when tailing someone or when trying to get away from enemies. However, they didn't blurt out annoying and psychotic death shrieks, and could be thrown away or pushed aside. The loading screens always called them "Harrassers", but I feel like that's an understatement for the little kiddos with the demon laughter that penetrate ones very soul.

Someone suggested throwing money. I should not give them money, it is rewarding them for their inappropiate behaviour. They must be severely punished. Not only for the screaming, but also for the attacking of those poor merchants. I think in the line of leading a pack of weird children to a pack of hungry wolves. But I guess that won't work.

Why didn't the mod edit both swear words from your post? lol

I have to echo a similar sentiment earlier in the thread about LOL'ing after being so bummed over the ending. Thank you so much.

Is the ending so bad that people are sent into depression after playing it? I guess I shall stay away from it then. O.o

I don't mind the idea of kids... but the creepy game models don't look quite right. They're just tiny hobbit humans... also, could be my lack of looking, but I haven't seen any female kids around?

if you want to chat about the ending - I suggest you look in the Hints&Tips forum..


There should be NO discussion of the ending in the General forum..


Thanks!

Problem is, you can't do anything against these little demons.
The beggars and minstrels could at least be tossed around or beaten up but these kids, you can't do anything about it. And they just keep following you wherever you go...

If ubisoft even cared a little for their fans then they would at least let us throw poison darts at them.

I'm more annoyed by those drummers in guard groups xD I make sure to walk up and stab him nonchalantly every time. He's at the back of the group, so nobody notices for a while :p

From now on, I will use the words "scoundrel" or "scallywag" in reference to the children, so that you won't have to edit my posts. Are those suitable words? :p

Right now, I am researching if there are animals near cities that house the pack of monsters. And also if they are willing to devour them, for some reason I think the devs would have made the children impossible to target for animals as well.

much better ;)


Tbh - the game does explain that the 'orphans' may annoy you - and the official way to avoid / deal with them is to give them money..

Not have a bear eat them... ;)

Instead if those scallywag kids they should have used the guys who pass out landscaping pamphlets in my neighborhood.

It's a shame you don't have kids wandering around in the frontier, it would great to lure a bear towards them.

I also found them very annoying. the noise they make is nonsense for orphan street urchins begging for money, why are they trying to irritate you ? , I just sprint a little to stay ahead of them,

Every time they run towards me, the noises they make remind me of gangnam style
"Wop wop wop wop"

Which only makes it even more irritating.

I can't speak for the english voice over but the german one is extremely creepy. The kids sound like an insane witch laughing at me. It took me a while to even realize it's this little "hobbit people" that make that terrifying sound.

But they have one advantage over all previous harassers. They are are very very slow. You can easily outrun them and they never where a serious problem while running away. :-)
