As the title says.

For AC-related posts. Basically if you want to bring up an AC-related topic but feel the topic is too miniscule and brief to warrent its own thread, post it here and some of us may discuss it.

So naturally expect a bunch of conspiracy theories, connor fangirling, and radman posts. :rolleyes:

http://www.tanoshiradio.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/10/K-ON-yui-shy.gif

I really needed this thread so I could post things I couldn't post in other threads. I hope it's more organized this way.

And one more thing: you can post a bit off-topic but try to keep it AC-related most of the time. There is already an off-topic thread. But if you want to bring something up really quick then that's fine too. :o

edit: I mispelled warrant.

May I ask which ones?

In reference to the OO, I can assume the "Air assassinate a grenadier" is one of them?

Jexx21
07-08-2014, 01:02 AM
oh, no I do all of the optional objectives

nah I just don't like the delivery quests, the assassination missions, or the club challenges (I like the clubs themselves though).

I was actually hoping that the clubs were going to be more in-depth, with a "clubhouse" that you could visit. Like how the factions in ACB and ACR had their own places.

JustPlainQuirky
07-08-2014, 01:03 AM
Getting the optional objectives wasn't nearly as hard as I thought it would be.

It's the naval missions that I hate. I'm saving them for last. Them, almanac pages, and underground tunnel systems.

Right now im getting all the chests and forts.

I just get annoyed when I miss a jump then have to exit and re-enter the area.

ALSO why is there a floating crystal unicorn in the game? I can't touch it. I can touch other ones but when i try to touch that specific one nothing happens. Do I unlock a unicorn by collecting them all? :rolleyes:

Also random thing but:

I would pay a zillion dollars to see Noah Watts and Adrian Hough in full cosplay of their characters. I would pay 2 zillion to see them hug and act in those costumes. ( ͡ ͜ʖ ͡)

I think you will no longer desynch after killing 2+ civilians since the game will have significantly more civilians and it would be easier to accidentally kill them :p

It's a pivot for unlocking cheats. You find these things and place them on the map to narrow the search zones for others.

What if Arno's father and step-father was killed by Assassins? Both died mysteriously(and the Assassins is known for such) and his family is Nobel. It would a great plot twist, the "bad guys" lead the protagonist where they need him. Like the movie Wanted.

would be awesome.

Aphex_Tim
07-08-2014, 04:54 PM
Because that is probably one you already had and it was placed on the map. If you place 'em on the map they'll create green areas in which you can find others. I think there's about eight or so of 'em and they'll unlock cheats like changing the weather/season, infinite killstreak, etc.

I mean there was subtle sex scenes in the other games and they didn't have warnings to my knowledge. this is the only reason i can come up with otherwise. unless there's blatant nudity at some point (like that painting of the topless woman referencing the FR) Not sure if that counts as sexual though. And if there was nudity the rating would say so me thinks.

edit: It's also possible the rating system got more strict

So a thread to talk about random things - things which already do have some threads about them - or - threads which would be suited for the discussion of said random things.. Made after I said it would be best not too start.. due to the spammy nature of it..

Oh so ignoring my advice /request not to make a spammy thread.. nice ;)


You make a group it's like a mini forum, just for your friends - or public - see that 'Community' menu at the top of the page - it's in there ;)

You can then invite people [closed group] or have a public one..


It's been there a while - many groups already exist ;)


And - 'do they still count for post count' = just set my alarms ringing.. you shouldn't be posting just to boost your post count - if you are, then we need to start watching you and others - since spamming to boost it, is not going to end well.. and does explain why you made the thread..


Also explains why you get caught so many times by the spam bot..

Wasn't an accusation - was just asking since was a VERY odd thing to say, that plus the amount of times she has been auto banned 'by mistake' - which we know has happened a few times, isn't going to convince the forum team otherwise - joke or not ;)


We [as in not just myself] always monitor threads to see if they should remain, based on the quality of discussion - not the amount of posts anyway, so carry on for now - and lets see how much milage you guys get. :)

I always thought it was crazy that people could achieve so many posts in such a short time. I've been here since December 2013 and haven't even broken 50 yet. Though, I got to say, that's mostly because I try to read every page and see who has posted what. If I see that someone has posted something similar to what I would've posted, then I don't post as my thoughts have already been written by someone else. But that's just me, and I mean NO offense to anyone that has a large post count.

ANYWAYS... On topic... or should I say, off topic... There's really not a topic going on, here.

One of my favorite things to do in AC2,B,R is to go to the rooftop guards, grab them, and then throw them off and watch them fall. It's one of the most satisfying things to do in those games. I also can't resist killing civilians that throw rocks at me or push me in AC1.

@Mayrice. It's been nearly a year since I 100% AC3, but if I'm not mistaken, I believe there are chests located underground, as well as on the Captain Kidd missions. But, like I said, I'm not totally sure.

ACR - no real side content to speak of, except the assassin apprentice missions which I liked but they required you to level up a lot of your assassins and I couldn't be bothered.
AC3 - I did eventually do all the side missions, but the homestead journal was just painful to try and complete. I was at 97% sync too.

I figured with AC4 I'd pull through and get the collectibles since I enjoyed everything else, I hated Kenway's Fleet too but figured I might as well because it's pretty simple.

I used to as well... Until AC4 where I once saw a cute kitty on a rooftop so I climbed up to pet it and suddenly I had half a Spanish armada up my ***. I didn't respond too nicely to that....

In the end I did get to pet the kitty after all though!

Something I'm wondering about the co-op: how does it look when one of your friends drops out in the middle of a mission or free roam? Do they just suddenly vanish into thin air? How is that explained narratively? Arno and his pals are infiltrating Versailles when suddenly one of his friends just disappears? I haven't played Watch Dogs, so I don't know how co-op works there.

It'll probably look like how your recruits would appear out of thin air in AC:B and AC:R. The Animus just kinda... materializes them.

Calvarok
07-09-2014, 08:17 AM
co-op is canon, it's just that for some reason whoever created "Helix" wanted to allow animus users to represent co-op through joining each other's sessions. So it's basically gamifying something that could be represented through other things the animus has been shown to do, like the recruits system.

I wonder what the reason is, actually. Do connected sessions increase synchronicity? is it because those co-op missions are really difficult on your own and connecting to other animus sessions is a more efficient method of representing allies than simulating them in the animus? That would mean Arno's memories are resisting the player on the co-op missions.. but why? what could they hold that's so important whoever's in charge of this animus would want you to work together with other subjects to uncover it, but isn't in the main path? maybe the co-op missions have their own storyline

Jexx21
07-09-2014, 08:20 AM
I'm pretty sure Helix is just the way the Assassins are trying to train "us" (the Initiates) to be Assassins, and co-op missions are there so we can "train" together and form camaraderie.

Calvarok
07-09-2014, 08:24 AM
That would make sense... but we don't know for sure it's an assassin animus yet, and the rebranding + clean blue-white style makes me think "Abstergo".

But on the other hand, AC3's animus was blue/white, and it would kinda make sense for the assassins to want to differentiate their tech from abstergo tech, espcially since they two have been developed independently for about 2-3 years by now.

I wonder, is acinitiates from now til launch going to be about them preparing to mass-produce and send the initiates (Us?) Helix devices?

AssassinCouture
07-09-2014, 03:53 PM
Yes but I haven't touched it ages. I was browsing online to see if anyone else had been talking about the costume and LO! I found this thread.
I absolutely adore Haytham's outfit and I would just be so honored if Adrian would allow me to make it to his specs. Noah already has some business cards that I had made specifically for the AC voice actors that he has agreed to give out.

Once I have completed Noah's costume and he has worn it to at least one con, it will become available to people as a custom order item to their measurements. The same will be true for Haytham and any other costume I end up making for the actors. They will be my advertising. Each costume will come complete with all the standard accessories the character has on their person in-game.

Right now, the turnaround time for making these is months long. I am employed full time and work on Noah's costume on the side. I'm a little nervous about becoming a start-up small business but perhaps the high cost of the costumes will scare off enough people that I won't be overwhelmed.

Edit: and I got into designing costumes because there just aren't any quality AC costumes availiable out there. I wanted my husband to be Ezio and to accomplish that, I had to do it myself. I'm a very harsh critic of low quality fabrics and poorly made garments, which is what I see time and again. Noah's costume will probably weigh 20 lbs when I'm done with it!

JustPlainQuirky
07-09-2014, 04:01 PM
I'm very critical of costumes too. I wanted to cosplay as an assassin but the costumes looked too cheap. And I lack the skill to make one of my own. Lol and yes I would be one of those people scared away by price. The most I ever did with fabric is try to make a plushie which I failed at. Mainly because sewing machines terrify me. :rolleyes:

I hope you do well. I know that feel about side projects taking forever. And yeah side bussinesses can be overwhelming at times :p

I also look forward to seeing Noah in that costume of yours :o
#adriantoo

But you really did find the best way of advertising. :rolleyes:

AssassinCouture
07-09-2014, 04:08 PM
Straight to the source!!!! LOL;)

Yeah, the initial cost to me is pretty high too... The actors get their costumes for free from me. My payday is when people see it and want their own. Noah's costume has about $450 worth of leather in it! But all I need is the right little niche of hardcore gamers who want a custom costume and can afford to pay for it. I know they're out there!

JustPlainQuirky
07-09-2014, 04:10 PM
Heh...Maybe I can afford one in incoming years... :rolleyes:

I imagine a Haytham one will be a lot tougher due to the buttons, complex design on the cape, and layers and layers of clothing? :p

AssassinCouture
07-09-2014, 04:19 PM
Actually, Haytham's will probably be significantly easier. No hood; long, unbroken lines comprising his coat; no leather leggings to wrangle; minimal leather in general. His should be a breeze and cost far less to make. His costume will be in the bargain bin for customers - relatively speaking! LOL!!

AssassinCouture
07-09-2014, 04:26 PM
Noah will see Adrian (in theory) at SacAnime. I have also told him to extend the offer to Ziio Horn too even though her character wasn't playable. We need more AC ladies wearing cosplay! She's pretty badass so she can have one too. Though simply because of the cost of the leather, hers will be pretty pricey even if it isn't as technical as the others. I may consider a non-leather alternative for the costumes if cost is just too high and keeping customers completely away.

JustPlainQuirky
07-09-2014, 04:29 PM

I would love to go out to the con and see him wearing it in person but I'm in Boston. Maybe if he ends up at the NYCC this year we can go and meet him. I'll probably skype with him to help him figure out any tricky parts of getting into his costume but other than that, it's pictures only for me. That's all I really want from the VA's anyway. Once the costume is done, I'd love to get a set of like 4 or 5 8x10 framed professional photos of them posing in the costume - signed, of course- for me to hang on the wall of my sewing room and to use as reference for selling my works.

"Assassin's Creed is a video game series about a procession of rakish rogues (and Connor) exterminating historical wrong'uns. Assassin's Creed is also, for some reason, a video game series about magic internet wizards, an evil corporation and using improbable VR machines to stop the Sun from breaking. For Assassin's Creed Unity, Ubisoft have wisely decided to drop much of their meta-fictional baggage"
"From the sounds of it, the series will retain its present-day narrative hook, but will be much less centred around the adventures of Desmond Miles, action barman."

that. That is just terrible. why can't we have a gaming news site like BBC that doesn't put any opinionated spin (or at least not much of one) on anything...

You know... people say AC games are riddled with bugs... I guess so. I haven't encountered many personally. But man, I decided to try out Liberation HD, and the bugs there are just... ****. Here's the latest one which prompted me to exit the game (because it became unplayable). A racoon confusingly examining Aveline thinking, why the hell is she swimming above ground?

I only bought liberation because I was so mad murderd soul suspect wouldnt work at first and I payed full price for it so I wanted to play something to feel like my money went somewhere.

Imma replay that connor mission soon. (the one where you have the option to play as connor)

that and the swamp are the only fun things about the game I swear.

My experience with it so far is... meh, I guess.

If you think AC3 mission design can be linear, you've seen nothing. One of the very first missions, we have a kinda traditional 'climb a churche's viewpoint to get the game title' thing. I see the church, it's right there. I go to it. But nothing happens. Because I had to go to church through the markers. And the markers are VERY precise, like, you actually have to go STRAIGHT through them, or they won't initialize.

In Sequence 2 which I think I've almost finished (I've completed the assassination, but apparently not the sequence yet, encountered bug from the screenshot) there's a mission where we have to tail an acolyte, there's a marker to reach the trail. I reached the required location through the trees, buuuuuut... the tailing sequence didn't activate, because I had to jump down to the marker which marked the beginning of the free-running path (that I could've gotten from the tree I was anyway) to activate tailing. During this tailing and jumping through trees, Aveline instead of jumping on a branch decided that she encountered an invisible wall in the middle of the freakin' air and fell down.

The Bayou is so ****ing irritating and impossible to navigate, it's a very poor version of the Frontier. Aveline can't climb lots of small hills, I have to go around them. Aveline is not consistent with when she wants to actually grab trees during free-running. The thing about having to get in and out of the canoes frequently to go somewhere quicker is irritating.

So far there were two assassination missions in the campaign, and none were actually an AC assassination, both times our presence was let known through a cutscene and we engaged in open combat.

I'm not sure what the hell the story is about. There's a string of levels about finding out what's with the shipments for your father that somehow has led to finding out that Governor is plotting with Templars. Wha? Maybe it was said or smth, but it's just the way story is told feels abrupt, at least for now. If AC3 suffers from having an overly detailed beginning, ACL suffers from having an overly abrupt beginning.

Yeah the prob liberation for me was:


The plot felt jumbly. I wasnt sure what I was doing or what my motivations were, as aveline.I didnt even know why or how Aveline became an assassin. Because she was mistreated and agate took her up? if it was mentioned, it wasn' clear. All I knew about the plot was I had to find some company man who was providing shipments to something eeevil i suppose. And I'm suppose to care because reasons. Because I'm an assassin I guess.

And the only good original character was Gerald. Aveline felt almost Robotic. Her dad was nice but he was barely in the game. And don't get me started on the cartoonishly evil mom.

gameplay was standard. Lacked excotic missions and variation.

but mostly game lacked motivation. I was just doing chores the whole game essentially with no real reason to be doing what I was doing. I wasn't invested.

It's one thing to have smth planned out generally speaking, a different thing to have it actually implemented. (Case in point, Desmond's saga was also planned out, so? :p )

Btw, back on the topic of Liberation again, one thing that I respect about Liberation, is honesty. If you go to the map screen to look what your optional objectives are, they don't call them optional objectives. They call them 'Constraints'. Direct and to the point. No bull****ing. I can respect that :D

See, that's only the beginning of it, it's A LOT worse...it just negates the whole point of the entire plot about the Templar perspective, I have no idea how it was okayed.

Every time I get to the Lucy stabbing in ACB I get stuck when Juno takes control of Desmond, the prompt to stab Lucy never pops up. I'm just caught in that screen with the music playing and the sound effects working fine - it's just never ending and I'm stuck, I can't stab Lucy and the game can't progress at all. I'm annoyed because I can never complete it and go back to the side missions which I normally do when I replay the games. I can't even go back to it and run around because I don't have a save file due to the fact they were all on my old PS3 (which I encountered the same problem on but I could load completed save files just fine). The disc also looks just fine, and I never encountered it beforehand.

It's a really weird and annoying glitch. Thought I'd share for no reason.

For a sucky game, Ac Liberation HD does some things pretty damned well that other AC games couldn't do.

1. You actually lose a LOT of health each hit you take in combat. I have died a few times.

2. You can't keep attacking enemies for eternity, unlike ac3 or 4. After a few broken combos, enemies will die the next time you hit them for sure. Some enemies, like muggers, don't even survive to suffer the combo animation after 4 hits.

3. NPC interaction: actually very good. Muggers react differently based on what persona you are, guards and NPCs alike acknowledge the lady persona respectfully. This may be the only AC game in which the guards attack you for having a weapon out. As an assassin or slave, they will detect you immediately. As a lady, they will politely go over to you and say things like "miss, please put your weapon away, this is unwise" or "are you ignoring me, senorita?"

4. The whip functions like the ropedart SHOULD HAVE FUNCTIONED. You can use it to trip enemies, but after disarming them or giving them enough damage, using it pulls them in for a sick kill. For some reason in AC3/4, you can't do this.

5. Social stealth: i actually USE social stealth in this game. There are actually quite a bit more NPCs in Liberation HD than in AC3, and at full noteriety enemies dont automatically detect you even if there are none around to detect you. Using social stealth to get around is actually useful. For some reason


Just something I thought I'd share. Doesn't warrant it's own thread though.

Farlander1991
07-11-2014, 08:37 PM
Played more of Liberation HD, completed Sequence 3. The game makes it really hard to like it, I think I'm gonna play it only when I've got nothing else to play. The biggest problem with Liberation is that you think you're set up for some cool mission and then get disappointed.

We have to infiltrate a Fort in Bayou, and the Fort is a pretty big location. And I thought, cool, it's going to be an awesome stealth section where we need to find the Fort commander! But the mission consists of killing four guards outside of the gate, then we go to the marker at the gate and get into a small chase with the Commander (and then we kill him). There's literally only like five other people in that huge (at least for the game) location. I know this game was made for Vita, but playing on PC, and infiltrating similar-sized Forts in AC3 and AC4 this feels like such a waste of space.

And the mission sections are so short. Elise says 'I'll race you', there's even an optional objective to beat her, and this 'race' literally lasts like five-six seconds, we basically have to race around the corner.

So far the only lengthy mission was where we're supposed to set up an ambush for the Governor, and by Odin's beard was this mission irritating. There are water tower we need to kick, and I'd get desynchronized because when interacting with the water tower, the game would automatically put me straight into the line of sight of a roof guard! And it was a non-interactive cutscene of Aveline kicking, during which the roofguard would get hes SSI filled up, and as soon as the animation ended he noticed me. And it's surprising how unresponsive Aveline's free-running can be even in the city. That section was timed, and I would lose a lot of precious time because Aveline either wouldn't jump properly on an object and fall down on the street, wouldn't climb up on the roof from a ladder without wiggling a bit with movement beforehand, and all that great stuff.

And there are nice little things in the game. Like, I love the tree view points in the Bayou, actually. They're even better than AC3's, because AC3 tree viewpoints are all the same, while in Bayou each one is different, and it's cool to climb them. But those nice little things are hidden behind lots of 'is that it?' (in terms of missions) and 'whyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy?' (in terms of the main character freakin' out and failing what you want to do).


1. You actually lose a LOT of health each hit you take in combat. I have died a few times.

I didn't die, but I had a few problems with fighting in the beginning, but it was only a matter of time of figuring out which ACL guard corresponded to which AC3 archetype, and then it was a piece of cake again.


2. You can't keep attacking enemies for eternity, unlike ac3 or 4. After a few broken combos, enemies will die the next time you hit them for sure. Some enemies, like muggers, don't even survive to suffer the combo animation after 4 hits.

You kinda can. I had trouble killing one of Baptiste's bodyguards because the dude would get out of the area we were allowed to walk in when I would hit him, and he'd get back and I'd hit him again and he would get out of that area, and it went just on and on and on and on, until I decided to run back to the center of the fight arena and kill him there.


5. Social stealth: i actually USE social stealth in this game.

After 3 sequences I had absolutely no use of social stealth, unless two instances of going through restricted areas as a slave with boxes counts as that.

That's what Amancio said in an interview. Probably not recorded yet. NPC phrases that I remember from ACU E3 demo were English, but they were mission-related (like, people talking about a murder, that's more relevant), so it will most likely be mixed (again, like it's the case with pretty much every AC game)

Maybe it's Comet that is going to be revealed there and this Unity inspired animated short is going to something entirely different like Embers.

Dishonored allowed you to follow that tenet of the Creed better than any Assassin's Creed game.

It's like AC in an alternate reality(called calculations in AC). So Dishonored can have the title AC: Dishonored if Ubisoft ever buy the IP or the other way around.

It would be the Steampunk AC we all wanted :rolleyes:

JK ofc.

Dishonored is a good standalone franchise. It plays way differently and has its own unique-ness to it.

I hope it is never bought out like that

:p

That's why it's important to always disable guards using one of the many non-lethal attacks available. These innocent guards will regain consciousness and be home in time for supper with their children.

Of course, sometimes you do have to kill in self-defense, but only as a last resort. And any sucker that shoots me just for walking on a roof will get what's coming to him.

Someone should do a statistic of the minimum guards you need to kill to beat the AC games.

Would require insane good stealth and clever manipulation of the physics mechanic though
