You can't judge the ACIV soundtrack on 50 seconds. I'm sure it will be great. :D That snippet just has a pirate feel to it, that's all. Edward is a pirate first and then assassin. Remember...? ;)

You really should be a bit more positive. :)

There's so much negativity around here lately. -_- I'm starting to believe it's contagious.

Yes, I know what "glorious" means. That face before put me off. I thought it was sarcasm. :p Lol, I still don't get you sometimes. Sorry. :P

Glad you love it though! xD I have a very good feeling about this one too!! :D

The soundtrack is the very reason I pre-ordered ACIV. Then I get a CD with it too!! ;)

I'd love to see this, I won't be going to Germany any time soon though. :(

I'm going to Eurogamer event next month in London, so hopefully Ubisoft has the artist over there.

Well it sure sounds more like having a nice Celtic feel than anything :) Which is very good.
Where's Edward from originally, anyway, Cardiff? Wonder if he's going to teach his crew some Welsh folk songs, not just the shanties :)

I'm going too! :D I have a ticket for Sunday! What day you're going!? I'm looking to get a Saturday ticket, too, but it's all sold out for now. But I keep checking the site if they come available again.

I hope they have the artist as well that Jackdaw cosplayer so I can stalk... err... take pictures of him. :D

Yes, I think Edward is from Cardiff. I've been there a couple of years ago. I may go again when I get my Edward statue so I can take him there for a home coming! *wipes tear* lol

That reply was actually because I thought someone didn't like the soundtrack from the 50 seconds that all. :p I love what I've heard so far anyway!! xD

Yes, Edward is supposed to be Welsh. :)

Haha Awesome! :D

I'm going on Thursday all day, I wanted to go on Saturday but too bad all the tickets being sold for that day, sometimes Eurogamer puts up extra tickets nearer the time - they never really "run" out of tickets! So I have been told. :p

IKR! That parkour free runner, it would be amazing to see him running all around London before he gets to Eurogamer! I would do the same thing lol.
I kind of wish the Jackdaw ship would be there too! I missed out on the San Diego Comic Con last month I wanted to go but damn I missed out.

I think so too, Edward is either from Cardiff suits his character or London because of Haytham's accent.

Aww you're warming to Edward's charm already lol, it's sweet! :D

silvermercy
08-14-2013, 11:24 PM

I'm not sure... It could be the lights...

... or Edward forgot to put color-protective washing powder when he did his laundry... ^^

Edward is Welsh, doubt he would be from London.

Oh, and that pic up there isn't of the guy who parkoured in the Edward costume, at least I don't think so. The parkour guy wore a more color-accurate costume.

Maybe he relocated to London later on when Haytham was born.

No doubt in my mind that Edward is from Cardiff.

You may have to run to catch up with me. I may wear roller blades and get a fan behind the sails, so I will be sailing very fast through the expo.
Hmm... I hope there are no cosplayers dressed as icebergs...

(agreed about Connor and Edward cosplayers!)

You know what just make sure that when you have those roller blades on you have that Assassin Strut going on too! xD

If there is icebergs around just hit them straight on cut them in half, just remember don't turn to the side those icebergs will put a hole through your hull!

Also remember to sail carefully during ROUGE WINDS!

Some fond memories from there... well, I still have that 'Beer Academy Belfast' T-shirt somewhere which cost me this horrible headache in a first place to win in a contest there :P All I can recall is as much as some Australian people breaking their tongues while trying to pronounce my full name in Polish and that the buses kept rolling out like crazy all night from where that Mercedes is coming...
