Im sorry, but AC3 was sh!t, it was actually (in my opinion) the worst in the series, it has nothing to do with political side of it so dont throw that at me, it was just boring, and jittery, it wasnt a very smooth game at all

Cant comment on Far Cry 3, ill buy it after im done with Hitman (which I am actually enjoying to my surprise)

And if Sleeping Dogs, oops, Watch Dogs is on the PS4 ill buy it for sure, it looks awesome, im not interested in playing it on the PS3, it wont look nowhere near as good as what was shown

this is why i love AC3:

1. they've done away with the s****y racing "missions", which i've always hated.

2. they've virtually done away with the s****y RTS/tower defense nonsense, which is a game genre i can't stand.

3. they've improved the free running controls (i've had almost no problems with the character jumping off in a completely different direction than where i was aiming).

4. i'm a sucker for anything during that historical period.

5. the naval missions are really quite good.

6. there's none of those garbage desmond FPS levels.

and sorry, buddy, but assassin's creed has always been jittery, and given the period in history that it's based in, how can you not avoid the politics of the time?

my only complaint for the game, so far, is that i also hate any game that involves some kind of micro management. i can handle the assassin jobs no problem, but i don't like all of that crafting/trading nonsense. just let me spruce up the homestead like assbro, and allow me to make money by buying/improving the various businesses.

@hellsvacancy

Ubi, please fix the glitch that kills save files in ACIII: Liberation. That game is baller as hell but the corruption is really ruining the game for me.

as much as I hate ubisoft pc drm thay are really innovative in terms of bringing out new types of games and I applaud them for that.
bubblebeam  +   615d ago
Yes but once they brought out new games they milked them. Think Rianbow six, Ghost Recon, Pop, Assassin's Creed etc.

I love Assassin's Creed, but I'm worried they are milking it into the ground. They want to stick to their yearly release cycle, which if they didn't they could have fixed a lot of the bugs in AC3.

They said "why not" when asked if they were going to bring out yearly AC releases. It really worries me, as a fan.

Yeah watch dogs is still to come.. I hope it's released next year regardless of platform.
NYC_Gamer  +   616d ago
I'm only looking forward to Watch Dogs from Ubi
Hanuman  +   616d ago
Where have I heard this before?! First let me take a look at what's to come, then I'll decide if it's better. Can't wait to get my hands on a copy of Far Cry 3 though. The reviews make my gaming-pipi go Doing.

Metal Gear?.....
Ubi makes awsome games! Not looking forward to splinter cell though..

Well what are they gonna say? The best has already happened? That's awesome marketing
Braid  +   616d ago
Yeah guys, prepare yourselves.

With Watch Dogs still remanining TBA, I think they're talking about none other than... Sam Drake. I mean, Sam Fisher.
THE_MACGREGOR  +   616d ago
Um...what does sam fisher have to do with uncharted?
MYSTERIO360  +   616d ago
For me Ubisoft have been the best gaming company this gen
DigitalAnalog  +   616d ago
Surprisingly, it was FC3 that is delivering what AC3 was supposed to do considering their reception not to mention being their "flagship" this gen. The end really is near on Dec 21, 2012.

I think Watchdogs will be some kind of Assassins Creed for the Next-Generation.

P.S.
"The best is yet to come."
President Obama & Frank Sinatra said the same.
