Wait, wait, wait.

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.
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.

I wasn't the biggest fan of the Desmond parts in AC1 and AC2, but in Revelations, it just clicked. So I welcome more of his story.
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.

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.

Sounds like this podcast: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KqMAKGL1DpM&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.

you know, i played through all the games and i never realized that the story was so silly after watching this trailer.
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

he looks like the man child of Adam sandler and Lance armstrong
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.
