Hey guys

im pretty new to the forums and i think this is the first thread i've made but anyway im still contemplating whether or not to buy this game?
i do not own a next-gen console unfortunately and it will be a few months time until i will be able to invest into a next-gen console i've also heard very bad things about UNITY:/ ROGUE looks pretty good but i am a bit disappointed at the outfit for Shay being different to the one on the cover
but that's just a small picky nuisance really.

The story sounds awesome but i didn't enjoy the naval combat and im not very keen on experiencing it all over again but i can certainly get over it
At the moment im bouncing between:

AC:IV DLC or AC:ROGUE

thanks to anyone who helps out! :D

Or should i just wait until it drops in price?

Yes, you should.

It's a great game, fun, and worth the money.

Impressive story, Black Flag's gameplay, and a awesome lead character.

thank you friend whats it like playing as a Templar in your honest opinion and to my knowledge there is a phase where your on no side right? and by the way whats the modern-day like its the same as AC:BLACK FLAG right? the whole hackers damaging the security is compelling to me.

Yes, I think you play the same character from Black Flag or if you don't, it's so similar you might as well be.

As for being a Templar, it's kind of weird because Shay is a lot MORE compassionate than your typical Assassin. Despite being a growly street brawler and criminal with a few murders to his belt, he is the only Assassin who pauses to think. "You know, those Templars were people too. Are we going to kill all of them? Why not make peace? Also, what about all those guards we've killed?"

Which was a nice bit.

My thoughts exactly. I can't bring myself to pay $60 for last-gen games anymore. Drop the price by half or better, or let us have a (good) current-gen version.

I doubt that. They could have made Shay go after a "evil" branch of the Assassins. Instead, it's very obvious the Assassins are still good. It's just they're terribly misguided and innocent people are dying as a result. Also, some not so innocent people who may not deserve to die simply because they wear red cross.

It's a situation where Shay may be making a poor decision too. It's up to the gamer to decide. War is Hell.

Eh, if I get 40 hours of entertainment from it. I pay full price.

I have.

I don't hold it to a technical standard. I hold it to "did I get my money's worth?"

well, story in rogue is.. complicated. its everything about Shays decisions and his view. he's just human. he's not so ideal as Ezio. in his opinion assassins brotherhood is wrong

It's kind of funny because Shay looks and acts like the kind of guy you wouldn't think to be an especially deep thinker but zeros in on a ton of stuff the Assassins ignore.

Yes. It's 1000000000000000000000000000000000000000x better than Unity, IMO.

It's not a perfect game, I'll be the first one to admit.

But it's a smashing success, IMHO.

If you live in the United States, wait for Black Friday because Rogue will be $25 at Wal-mart. If that's sold out by chance, then Best Buy is having it for $35.
