MT4K
11-13-2012, 09:18 PM
My main problem with the threads about the hood is that it's really trivial.. Yes i personally would prefer the hood back as well, but the way some people have talked about it like it's a game ruining problem and stops them from enjoying the game just gets to me.... It doesn't affect gameplay at all. It's just aesthetic....

I've seen people say they stopped playing the game entirely due to it.. I find it rather silly to be quite honest....

Although i am glad they are going to sort it out all the same :). I was hoping this thread would turn more into a thread about the AMA going on rather than just the hood though which is the main reason i left it open and posted something else from the AMA lol.

WarriorAegis
11-13-2012, 09:20 PM
It would be trivial (to me) if Connor didn't have that blasted haircut at the end. XD I don't mind his hood down normally because his normal hair cut is just fine.

Just read through the whole page, and it's so annoying how the devs continue to answer the same questions which they've been answering the past 9 months in interviews "how hard was it building the frontier?" "Was it hard implementing tree navigation?" "How hard was it making the trees?" "Was it a challenge building the frontier?" AAAH!

Also, it's funny how they dismissed the questions which really mattered, such as the awful Desmond plot. Oh well, the banter between them is pretty funny.

Hopefully they'll continue addressing some of the glitch and design choice questions - like the ones about the crouching and the hood. I guess the only way to get them to do that is to keeping asking those kinds of questions.

I hate to be a cynic but it makes me uneasy that they did not expect the fan reaction of not having the assassin's hood up. That's almost as bad as not having a hidden blade at the end of the game. If it's not there. It's not Assassin's Creed.

I hope they fix the outfit glitch with the cut scenes. It's somewhat annoying having your outfit keep changing and glitch in in cut scenes, and being different during gameplay; kinda makes it useless. Same with disappearing consumables at e start of each sequence. Annoying bugs that should have been fixed pre-release.

DargonisDufaux
11-14-2012, 12:34 AM
i really hope they give a toggle option for this because i personally loved the look of him with his hood off, the hair cut. to me it symbolized that the fight was over, the templars he knew were dead, he had saved his land, or tried, he killed the men who murdered his mother, he didnt have to hide from the hood. everyone will sit here and say the hood symbolizes he is an assassin but come on, sure it made sense, fit it with altairs time, it was to hide in plain sight as a monk, it ezios time it fit in , made them easier to hide among the public.

the era we play ac3 in? not so much you stick out like a sore thumb with it on. if they are going to change something visual because so many people have whined about it i hope they have the sense to give those of us an option who enjoy the look the creators intended to give us and allow us to keep it.

You know what, that really annoyed the cramp out of me lol, I asked the debs if they were willing to add infinite assassination contracts, and ambient events, it was totally ignored by the devs. Instead they were answering questions that we obviously knew what the answers were, like omg was making the frontier hard, how about the trees how did it make free running different in designing the game, freakin answer questions and feedback that will make the game better, jeez. I wasted 20 min of my life checking to see if they would answer my question.

AMBIENT MUSIC ! Can you guys at Ubisoft and the developers of AC3 give us a yes or no answer on whether or not it is even a consideration or possibility to implement ambient music to the current AC3 title? There is a demographic of paying customers would like to know the answer to this question. I have seen this question asked way too much and you are the only people who can answer it so please do so. Many fans are waiting patiently.

What about Outfit colors showing up in cut scenes?
They answered this question. The answer is no due to lack of disc storage space. It was a specific choice they had to make.


Just read through the whole page, and it's so annoying how the devs continue to answer the same questions which they've been answering the past 9 months in interviews "how hard was it building the frontier?" "Was it hard implementing tree navigation?" "How hard was it making the trees?" "Was it a challenge building the frontier?" AAAH!

Also, it's funny how they dismissed the questions which really mattered, such as the awful Desmond plot. Oh well, the banter between them is pretty funny.
Exactly how I felt. I asked what I believe to be rather unique, interesting or pertinent questions, but they got ignored. Also other people asked good questions which got ignored. The developers spent half their time joking, which wouldn't be an issue if they would spend a full week answering EVERY question. But if they only spend 3 hours answering questions and nothing more, then make it worthwhile FOR US.

"Was it hard making AC III?"

YES OF COURSE IT WAS HARD! WHY ASK THAT SIMPLETON OF A QUESTION?! WHY EVEN BOTHER ACKNOWLEDGING IT?!

Rage. :(

It's confirmed not to be a glitch, and it will never change, so you can stop hoping.
As for disappearing consumables, I can't confirm this, but other people said that if you craft a pouch for that consumable (within the accounting book using the Homestead tailor) that you won't lose consumables. Apparently.

I think the devs should make their own accounts here on the forums, then they can answer some real questions. Not answer every question obviously, but just pop in every now and then to reply to a few enquiries and post their thoughts on feedback.

This is the proof that Ubisoft listens to their community.Gaming studios don't do that very much these days.Good on you,Ubisoft!

They sure do - I try to mention that often. The first few days I saw a couple rant threads made with accusations that Devs don't care or listen.
Total crap. Last nite on HBO I watched a 'making of COD BO2' & after watching those devs pour their hearts & souls into that game creation, there is no way a Dev doesn't care about the game they're creating for fans.

From ACR (plus fan input last year on ACB as it was being compared to ACR at release) to AC3, I see many things they've done to appease fans and I appreciate that.
I don't mind constructive criticism [and there is def some to be had] but the haters, trolls & entitlement bullies have really gotten my panties in a bunch around here. It's tamed down for now, so I'm not as hostile. lol

If I can ever finish AC3, I can't wait to give my full feedback and thank them for this game. :D

I am wondering about the hoody fix. It says " Returned Connor’s hood to normal behavior at the end of the game (hood remains up when in Frontier or Cities)". This all sounds wonderful and all but does that mean I have to replay the game for the fix to work or will it already work on my current save?

Here's how they have worded it on the other thread " After the end credits, put the hood back up when not in Homestead"
