Those were all separate games with completely different storylines. Assassin's Creed is really just one story that refuses to end.


Honestly, though, at this point I'm just playing devil's advocate. I don't really have much invested in this debate.

Quote from: Wikipedia
As the fourth largest video game company in the world as of 2009, Ubisoft studios employs the second largest amount of in-house development staff in the world and has several divisions and offices throughout the world

I'm pretty sure they can handle working on more than one game at a time you guys.

I thought it was obvious enough from the context, but I should note that Ubisoft Montreal (which is but one of Ubisoft's studios) is developing both titles.

I just hope they don't forget about Watch_Dogs in lieu of Assassins of the Caribbean.

So we're in agreement that they have two separate teams for these games, and that one getting more press doesn't necessarily mean the other game is getting shafted? :irock2:

I think you took that comment a bit more seriously than I intended it to be. I'm not very good at sarcasm sometimes.

The problem that I have is the same problem that I have with most serialized television shows: I got into it because it was enjoyable, and I want to see how the story ends. Unfortunately, because they make so much money from this franchise every year, they stretch the content thinner and thinner, until what would've made a nice trilogy turns into a 7+ game slog. I just don't give enough of a shit about it to invest that much time and money into it.

I'v given up on the main story a long time ago, I just play it for the freer-roam :p Also since this post is about Black Flag I guess I'll throw this out there...

Spoiler for Do I see a beard down there?:

To me it seems like they don't even know what to do with the story anymore. In AC2/AC2Brotherhood (not sure which) Subject 16 mentions something about how Desmond needs to go find "Eve" (I'm guessing hes supposed to be the Adam)
Spoiler for No really a spoiler:
Which is probably why they killed out Lucy, cuz shes not Eve or something
But then it changes to being about gods and blah blah....


PS: Did you know that AC is based on a comic, and in that comic theres a special (staff was it?) of Eden that could resurrect people? Just sayin'  :blizj:

The Desmond story was all such bollocks. Got in the way of the game. That's the first thing they should fix.
it's like a metaphor or something i don't know

It didn't make sense to me.


HEY! SPOILERS!

Spoiler for:
AC1: Why am I here? I'm not even an assassin, I'm a bartender; this doesn't make sense!
AC2: Hey, I'm finally learning how to be an assassin. I can climb shit now.
ACB: I'm kind of an assassin, now, thanks to the animus. Crazy how that sciency stuff worked, huh?
ACR: Oh, right, I guess I forgot that I trained to be an assassin my whole life. HA, MY B. ALSO, HI DAD.


I haven't played III yet, be cool.



I do like the turn it took to be about Gods and an old race and shit, though. That was actually cool, and a huge weight of uncertainty lifted at the end of ACR. I mean, they'd been hinting at it since ACII.


Again, haven't played ACIII yet. Shhh.

Honestly I was never a huge fan of desmond's excuse plot. It started out kind of interesting and then it just got silly.
Now that they're supposedly done with desmond though, maybe they'll start to get away from all the needless justification for everything.

AC3 is all about that god shit, seriously. I really just sit around and play the multiplayer now (you dont HAVE to pay for a Uplay passport for it, it usualy comes with one like always but my sister just made a Uplay account online and linked them, free) :V


I like how Connor can climb ANYTHING (He climbs cracks in rocks better then he climbs trees O_e)
