Not what I mean, I was worried that Tyler is composing so I had a friend from the music industry investigate and he said Tyler is enjoying it therefore it will be good(if he doesn't enjoy it then he creates generic trash - Army of Two) and also mentioned that the main theme will "wow" us. His own words.

What if he stops enjoying it? I never listened to the Band of Brothers track, but if it was bad why did they let it continue? Were they not supposed to keep tabs on him?

And I'll listen to FC3 tracks again. But I only liked 2 of them on my first time.

I know a lot of technical and system-based advancements have been announced. I know Edward's struggle sounds really promising. I know the modern portion sounds refreshing and mysterious.

That being said, THIS is what makes me truly optimistic that this will be an amazing game. This attention to detail and atmosphere really gets me excited.

06-26-2013, 06:58 AM
My hype has been renewed. I bet the ambient music will either stop or play much softer when you order your crew to sing. It would be cool if we could get someone to play the flute, drums, or violin to go along with different songs. Think of a calm night with a violin or flute playing while all else is quiet. (I hope we can toggle the ambient music in the menu tbh.) Or major battle with the drummer going off and the crew singing bravely into battle

Now this made me wonder about will Edward order his crew to sing? And will he need to do that if he sees they are agitated and need motivation? or can we just order them at random whenever we want?

Are they 'ordered' to sing on 'The Black Pearl' or 'Flying Dutchman' in P.O.T.C movies ? - or is it a spontaneous thing ?

Well,
a) in terms of gameplay, you wouldn't want the crew start singing just whenever, some people could be really annoyed by that
b) we don't know how exactly it's implemented yet, maybe they'll just start singing with a press of a button, and Edward will not command to do anything
c) or maybe Edward is the one who's going to start singing, and then the crew joins him.

I have the feeling it would be a button. Maybe Edward has to walk up to someone and press a button and they they all start singing.

Anyways... so much singing talent wasted on those pirate ships... They should audition for American Idol: Pirate Edition.

I'd hope it's a shouting Edward.

A bit unrelated, but honestly hoped a character like Faulkner would have been reserved for AC4. His pirates of the Caribbean humor would have been utilised far better n a game like AC4, with a far more reactive character like Edward. I didn't feel like there was any chemistry between Faulkner and Connor anyway.

I agree somewhat, but I kind of liked that contrast. They also had that mentor/pupil relationship which turned into mutual respect and trust.

I expect it will be a very different relationship than with Edward and Adewale, who seem to be bros.

I would never have imagined that AC would start delving into sing along songs. This is a great way to immerse the player further.The modern character, us, must be a high ranking employee to get away with exploring the world and singing instead of focusing on syncing and finding whatever PoE they're looking for.
