So today I was expecting to receive Batman Arkham origins Collectors edition. But Instead by surprise the mailman handed me a box which was too big for the Batman European Edition. When I opened it I saw it was the AC 4 black flag. I took a couple pictures and to show you guys what I received.

I'll soon upload a couple gameplay videos on my YT channel

Nice!


Quick FYI - The content codes, may not work until the 29th - so don't worry if they come up as 'invalid' - they should all work fine on the official release day ;)

Its only cause they ship super early.

Other retailers may have also started shipping - depending on the stores policy.

Most attempt to get the game to you on release day [or at least I would hope so] - so some may arrive quicker than others, depending on where you live..

Early shipping avoids an upcoming ****storm in case you don't get your game on Tuesday due to weekend problems. Better this way instead of waiting till Wednesday or Thursday. Great unboxing btw, i'll get the Black Chest too.

Here's a closeup of his face/chest area made from an upwards angle (he looks a bit down)

Rightclick -> view image for the full size of it this is about 40% size.

and one with the roping/mast done as in the image on the box (a pain to attach those ropes a bit proper tbh haha)

Awesome, love those canvas prints could you possibly get a clearer pic of them? That Steelbook is also one of the nicest I've seen.

Edward looks sad, haha.

Can't wait for my PS4 version of this to arrive.

I would have loved getting the black chest, why don't America get a chest?

Not TOO close though - we want people to have something special ;)

I know you wouldn't copy / print them - but others may ;)

*sniff* I would have got the Black Chest edition, but even the PC version was a bit out of my price range at 110, the most i've ever paid is 60, and now, the pc version is sold out anyway, i still haven't pre-ordered the buccaneer edition, i'm not even sure i will at this rate (running out of shelf space for collectables!)

Though the black chest does look real nice.

I see you have the ps3 version there. Are you having frame rate problems too?

Probably directed at giantcookiejar but i'll give it a go as well.

Personally. I play it for the fun of it. It's not a competitive game so maybe that's why i don't notice it but i haven't had any noticeable frame drops. But maybe i'm just really lucky. No sound/music glitches so far and had 2 very very small stutters in a cutscene way in the beginning but ever since then no problems at all tbh. I did change the 5000rpm default hdd with a 7200rpm hdd back when i got it and if it loads stuff (textures, music etc.) from there this could make a small difference. But like i said. Maybe i'm just lucky idk mate. Right now. If there are any issues i don't notice them because i'm having to much fun playing the game instead of watching my screen trough a microscope looking for issues ;) :p :D

Thanks for the reply mate. I appreciate that. Personally low frame rates don't bother me since I used to play games on an outdated PC before I got my ps3.
It's just that some playing on the ps3 say that it's slow to the point of the control being unresponsive.
Since I don't get black flag till Tuesday it got me a little concerned.
Didn't mean to sound like an annoying little *hit. :)

Haha you aren't. If i read those things before playing myself i'd want to know it as well. But nope haven't had any moments so far where my controls are unresponsive.

Though i just started the game up again and wile it was fun that i got "something" (aint saying cause it's a surprise hehe) i did get a constant (pops up ever 40/60 seconds) connection lost message in my screen which can get really annoying. Especially since it's the ubi servers that aren't online yet so there's nothing we can do about it (servers not available it says that when trying to login to uplay). But i hope that stops soon cause we didn't get that yesterday. That's my 1 single issue :p haha

Yeah going to do that now. But was messaging with my nephew so couldn't earlier.

But on the topic at had.

I'm wondering what all you guys do who got the BC edition. Will you keep using the plastic box to store your disk or will you use the steelcase to store/display the game?

I'd never trow away a case. But like with AC3 i have the steelcase setup between the statue and washinton's journal to showcase. Thinking of doing the same with the AC4 steelcase and just keep using the plastic (normal) case to store the disk in.

I actually never use the steelbooks cause I get afraid they might scratch

Sounds like a sweet idea! :D Steelbook cases are always eye candy. :)
I can't wait for my Skull edition on Tuesday! Hehe

Fat lot of luck that'll be in America... o_O I'll get it in the first week or second week of November.
