This is more of a series as a whole topic, there is something I am a little confused about in the AC series story.

Why did Desmond have to die?Desmond had seen a lot in his time since he came into possession of the apple in the coliseum. But what troubled him the most was his own future. He notices things changed every time he looked into the future, but the one thing that didn't change was his death. It always happened on the same date, and it was always a suicide in some context or another.

In one future he would risk his life saving his father, in one future he would sacrifice himself to stop the solar flare. No matter how many times he looked or whatever he did, his future would not change. And as the date drew closer he became more and more depressed, for he was about to die in his prime and there was nothing he could do to stop it. He felt cheated, there was no real cause for all of this, its just the way it was.

As the days drifted on everything seemed like a copy. Nothing was real, sure he was in the true present but nothing had any value to him. Then finally, Desmond found a way to gain some control in his life. If he was going to die, he was going to die for himself. He was going to control his fate, and he was going to go out with a bang, on his own terms, and there was nothing anyone could do to stop him.

So he devised a plan. He snatched up the first opportunity to leave the temple and hunt for one of the power cores, and headed to Brazil for his final showdown. As he walked around through the crowds he replied to Rebecca in his usual automated response. But in the back of his mind, a plan was starting to form. He walked into the bathroom and saw a lone patrolman taking a leak. He walked towards his own urinal, and then snapped the mans neck from behind with total precision and control. He quickly grabbed the mans security pistol, an M1911. In a few smooth actions he turned off his headset to Rebecca, left the bathroom, and began firing on the crowds with random precision.

He calmly walked towards the exit of the stadium, shooting people as he walked. The air was sucked out of the entire stadium as chaos took control, people trampled over each other to get to the exits, people screamed for their lives.

As he walked out of the exit, Desmond was greeted with an ocean of flashing lights. He was totally surrounded by police, their were helicopters in the sky and he could see many roadblocks up ahead. He could see SWAT vans and police cars lined up at the exit, with rows of police lined up behind them. Someone over a megaphone called to him to put his hands above his head and surrender, but the voice fell on deaf ears.

Desmond calmly walked towards the nearest roadblock and a smile crept across his face. He opened his jacket to reveal a nuclear weapon attached to his body, and a deadmans switch wired to his bloodstream. Should he die, the nuclear weapon would be activated, and the entire city would be wiped off the map. But he didn't slow down, he picked up his pace and walked right up to the roadblock. A look of horror spread across the officers faces as they acknowledged the bomb, and they screamed into their radios, asking for their new course of action. Desmond walked right up behind the cars, and fired into their heads at point blank range. One by one he fired into their heads with total control.

The rest of the police scattered like wild animals at the sight, the crowds ran back as far as they could. At this point Desmond began his walk into the city centre. He grabbed an assault rifle off a dead SWAT officer, and walked into the heart of the city, dead on rush hour. He walked into the traffic and fired into the cars as he pleased, he fired at everyone and anyone. The entire city was now his hunting ground, and he had the power to kill as many people as he wanted, however he wanted, and no one could do a thing to stop him. After a few hours of slaughtering people in the traffic, he put a gun into his mouth,and fired.

He could have easily dodged, he's possibly the greatest assassin alive by that point, who has lived the lives of 2 of the greatest assassins to ever live and currently living through the life of another, yet an old man got the slip on him. What was all that bloody training for?

It was so frigging anticlimatic, they build up all this modern day stuff, telling us about the world and things that will happen, they built up that satelite lauch then bloody forgot about it. we do some stupid crappy missions then they just randomly introduce this orb thing that saves the world by killing desmond and releasing juno, with no explainatin whatsoever. At points the moder day story was what i was most excited about, but they royally f'ed that up.

I agree, this is exactly my thoughts even though I was just mentioning what in actuality happened to his character. Shame though, he was just so fixated on Juno, things would have been different for him if had listened to Juno.

They built Desmonds character up to knock it down so swiftly he just made the wrong mistake.

I won't miss Desmond interrupting my gameplay while he's in the Animus.

Fight between Desmond and cross... ****ed up

and tbh I dont want to be play as "me" quite honestly i couldnt give two ****s about "me" I want another modern day character that is emotionally investable in 3rd person.

The Least they could of done was have us corner vidic, Kill him with the original hidden blade sound in the neck and have our final speech with him like in the previous games about how the templars are bettering the world... something even like that would of felt original.

Brotherhood was making him look promising but due to its very ****ty ending with Lucy dying it ruined it..

Original or not, it would have been the right thing to do, to show that desmond has become an assassin, what better way to show that than for him to say, assassinate someone, and who better than vidic?

They better get their heads together and dump all this "You are the player" crap for modern day after AC4 and give us someone else who we can follow and look forward to playing as, hopefully if they do another 3rd person hero he or she can be what Desmond never became.

That's probably going to happen as the new AC game will draw a different target audience. However once that audience gets bored of the formula they will drop that story just like every over story they have done and move on.

Yeah I was really disappointed with this. Since the start of AC1 my mind was running wild with how they were going to so that modern day assassination. I thought the entire franchise was leading to an AC game set in modern day times, boy was I let down. I thought we would be tracking Vidic across the state, I guess watch dogs is what I had in mind huh? In fact I don't really see why AC4 is hyped at all when so many better games like MGS5, GTA V Watch dogs etc are coming out. AC4 is just a copy and paste of AC3 with a shoddy story... its really not worth the money. IMO.

I liked Desmond. I don't understand the 'no personality' argument. He clearly did and with enough screen time and some good missions we could have grown to like him. If people didn't whine and use him as a scapegoat, maybe Ubisoft would have treated him with more respect.

And I'm not sure I'll be able to use Gaikai, due to my internet being so slow.
