With that said, ill probably play this when its about 30$ or so.

I'm cautiously optimistic, but probably won't get it at launch. Odyssey takes precedence. If reviews are good, I'll consider it during the holiday sales.

Been waiting on them to cover Egypt for years, so I'll take it upon release. Mario Odyssey will still take priority though.

Unity and Syndicate didn't drop faster than other games, if anything Ubisoft games drop slower than other games like WB games.

It's this and Mario for me on the 27th.

No interest in Wolf since I didn't enjoy playing NO or OB very much.

I pre-ordered the Gold Edition shortly after it went up on Steam. AssCreed is my guilty pleasure and I can't say any of the changes have rubbed me the wrong way. I'm very much looking forward to sinking my teeth into the game.

Here's hoping Ubi doesn't announce a last-minute delay of the PC version. ;)

Hyped. Just want to see if they do the MD justice this time. No more bishop. No more cutscenes. Just pure plain 3rd person like we had before. Juno is on the rise. It's time to get straight into the action.

Zero hype.

It looks good graphically, but the gameplay seems boring and nothing about the story convinces me this is a return to form like 2, Brotherhood or even the first game.

Don't know if it's country specific, but Ubi games probably drop the fastest out of all the publishers in the UK. Might just be part of their strategy to keep sales rolling while the game is still in peoples minds.

I am a big fan of Assassin's Creed but I'm a little hesitant about Origins. I think it'll be decent but I'm not sure it's going to be the big comeback everyone hopes for, if it's as good as Syndicate I'll be satisfied and if it's any better I'll be pleasantly surprised.

My main wish would be for a new modern day story arc that isn't completely half-arsed but I've given hope of that. Will we see Juno this game?

Neither hyped nor not hyped. Everything is resting on what the reviews and impressions say. I think the easiest way to describe my feelings rn is that I'm hopeful, but not hyped. I think the fact it's launching against Odyssey isn't helping it much in terms of my hype for it either.

I guess you're ignoring the many others saying the same? This isn't new. AC games drop in price quick. This is a factor if it is a game you are on the fence about. Again, it is a hype check thread for the game. If you feel what I said was out of the scope of the thread, take it up with a mod through PM's instead of derailing or trying to police the thread.

I donít think itís trying to be a return to form at all? If anything, the message the devs seem to be sending is that the aforementioned form was stagnating.

Probably it's more a difference of perception based on platform. I get all my multis on PC and games from publishers with their own storefront drop slower than those on Steam.

I think he means a return to a respectable status in the enthusiasts eye.

I enjoy these games and even though they sell well, one can't dispute that in the enthusiasts groups like GAF/Reddit/etc where people discuss games online, the series is held in contempt/low standings like other yearly titles since AC3 and especially after Unity.

My guess is that its gonna sell very well and validate any other AC game that's been worked on for however many years etc.

It won't be talked about much during that period thanks to Mario Odyssey and the shit storm that's gonna have here on Neogafs GOTY orientated discussions and all that.

Wolfenstein is probably gonna further steal the show by spiral into chaos with undercover sympathizers spewing garbage etc.

This is my #2 most hyped game of the fall season, just behind COD:WW2. I will NOT be buying it on launch day, hoping for a slight sale 10 days later when the X1X comes out. At this point I am not playing anything new until X1X releases, so as much as I want to, it has to wait!

Oh god I'm having flashbacks to AC2 and ACB pc versions. What was it like 5-6 months later?

Really hyped for this one, but I've never disliked an AC game with the exception of the first. So far, all AC have been either good (AC Syndicate), great(AC Revelations, Rogue) or amazing(AC 2 and Black Flag).

Not really hyped at all at the moment. I love the AC brand, owned every main line title day one in the past and while I have issues with a couple of the games overall I love the series.

I'm just not liking the look of the combat in this one and I'm not to fond of the RPG stuff either. The fact that Mario comes out on the same day isnt doing AC any favours for me right now.

edit -

You know what might push over the edge into getting it? The modern day stuff. I really like that and if there is something good during that then I may get it sooner rather than later. But if the modern day parts are anything like the last two games then I wont bother for a while.
