New thread, new news, etc. Called "Previously on". It's a nice way to get into AC3 for people who never played the previous games.

Am I seeing something Ubisoft doesn't want me to see yet? If so why is it uploaded? And how did you get the link to a hidden video? Is it form that code website? (EDIT: Yeah, it is.)

The trailer is alright, but doesn't really tell us anything we didn't know. Seems like it's for newcomers of the franchise.

The model used in this trailer seems to indicate it's at least more faithful to it than what was in Revelations.

My guess is he needs to know about this secret lost place in New York that Connor probably had been to.

I listened to a Revelations developer podcast and they said they brought back in the original actor and recaptured his face with better technology for Revelations. So in fact, Revelations was probably more accurate to the actor's face than the previous games. But I guess there was a big enough outcry about it that they probably modified the model to split the different between the real actor and the way he looked in AC1/2.

Ezio's face also looks *way* off in this intro cutscene from any other version of him. In fact he probably looks closer to the Soul Calibur V model in this.

Really? I thought Desmond's part in Revelations was rather minimal compare to previous AC games... although i did skip a lot of optional things when i was playing this game, maybe it was all Desmond stuff.

They were indeed optional. You can argue about platforming gameplay in his segments, but they did a good job of making me care about him.

They really have to keep focusing more and more on that ancient God/end of the world crap? It was such a terrible story idea. The conspiracy theories from the original and early in 2 were great, but now I struggle to care about any of the central story points.

The first person puzzle platformer stuff was all Desmond.

I do think they've done a good enough job with Desmond to turn him from Urist McBland to a bit more of a character, but he really suffers from still being the wimpy kid of a series that is characterised by strong male characters.

I'd probably be bored/uninterested in the story if it didn't have all the crazy shit. Because if it didn't go all out with that, it would just end up being some boring, badly written conspiracy junk with a forgettable plot anyway.

At least with this its so batshit insane that it gives the series some charm.

Those segments painted a picture about Desmond that made me care about him much more than I did before them.

I wish they released a bit farther away from each other; I love both series but there is no way I am going to be able to focus on both with my schedule.

Sounds like this podcast: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KqMAK...feature=relmfu

And yeah it's probably more "accurate", it just doesn't look right to what you're used to and the new model looks nothing like real life Francisco Randez. I hope they've tweaked it somewhat to resemble to older version of Desmond in AC3 (Connor looks different again, but that's fine).

There was a picture that came out maybe last week with Desmond in AC3 and he definitely looks more like his old self. That being said I don't think the Revelations face was too different from the version of Desmond that Ubisoft originally made in their aged Desmond look tests. Problem is that in the story he shouldn't have aged which is why it looked weird.

Every major historical figure is involved in the Templar vs. Assassin war. Mitt Romney is a Templar who owns Abstergo stock.

It took a turn for the worst after the second game. Now it's overly complicated and vague simply for the sake of being vague.


In fact, Revelations made me realise that the Templars are actually the good guys in all this. So there was at least a revelation in that game after all.

How are the templars good? their whole objective is to use the pieces of eden to give themselves the power to control and enslave humanity, same as how they theorize the 'ones who came before' did

You have a strange definition of ridiculous. Personally I always love me some conspiracy. I love anything that includes "what if..." and I like it when someone toys with history and talks about things that no one can neither deny nor confirm.

Damn I've been trying to put it into words. That's perfect.

Is this series basically western Kingdom Hearts in terms of convoluted stories/timelines etc? I want to get Liberation because Ubisoft really looks like they're putting in a lot of good effort, but I'm not really interested in the series as a whole.

Desmond watching a UFC fight? I just threw up a little...

Welp, we know the next UFC event will probably be sponsored by AC3.


I will let it all pass if they don't go so far to include actually real life fighter cameos in the game. NOOOOOOOO!
