    AC3 was awesome and I'd imagine this will be too, looks veh-nice.

    I don't know why I didn't like AC3. It just didn't feel as utterly awesome as I had hoped. But AC4 looks like it's going to be Pirates Online 2.0, and I'm happy about that.

    Well, admittedly, the thing I wondered in the first weeks the game was out; what core gameplay was intended in AC3?
    Because it wasn't stabbing people like an assassin is ought to do.
    I liked how Connor genuinely felt something like pity for his targets (well, at least afterwards...) but it just doesn't deepen because afterwards he stabs another 20 soldiers and what not.

    I've seen some gameplay videos, and I'm really excited about the ship-boarding and all that pirate booty... (YA - HAAAARR!)

    Honestly, Connor was 70% of why AC3 wasn't perfect. I'm a huge Revolution/Napoleonic Wars time period nut, but Connor just killed it for me.

    Well... yeah. He's stubborn, naive beyond measure, and asexual it seems. He had not a single trait of a good character imo.
    Can't believe he was the best the Assassins had in that time. No wonder they're about to be exterminated by the Templars in the present.

    Also, I didn't think that Connor was as likeable as Ezio. Ezio's story was the best. :)

    Wanted to go to the midnight release, but Roanoke is dangerous at night. So I'll buy tomorrow.

    This is my game purchase in over a span of months and I hope the stealth mechanics are solid and enjoyable.

    I was only able to play it for a bit last night, but I enjoyed what I've played so far. Edward is a pretty good character, and the game is a little less restrictive in how you can play out the missions.

    I've never played AC, but I'm thinking of getting Black Flag. Is it a good one to start off on?

    IMO, if you're going to play AC, start from the beginning. And if you're not playing for story... well, you're not playing the AC series for a good reason then, IMO.

    Actually this one feel quite half baked to me... at least the story.

    Its pretty obvious that they first build a world, and then just baked up a story to fit into the world.

    Good games are made the other way around.

    Since we're asking questions, how's the historical aspect of it? I loved the other games partly because I'm a history buff.

    22 GB of digital download, well I'm waiting ( 1hour to 40 min).

    I have I, II, Brotherhood and III in PC. Revelations is missing.

    I get this as download code with my new graphics Gard (Asus 780 DCII), like Batman and Splinter Cell.

    I must says, Graphics are great. Like always controls little "laggy" but that why I'll plug Xbox controller.
    I said one of those must play games, if you like previous versions of AC or like Pirates in movies.

    What a fleeling when ship go up and down in waves of sea.

    I added some screenshots (Sorry Finnish texts in game)

    Great work UBI, even I dont need those translations, someone may need.

    Next I must test tactical light bulb shooting game.
