Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag Review - Midlife Gamer

Derek 'Digi' McRoberts says "I don’t know how many people out there will agree with me, (or maybe I should ready myself for the lynch mob), but Ezio Auditore ruined Assassins Creed III. I make no bones about it that the Florentine executioner bled out AC3 as surely as if he had run his blade through its throat. Let me explain before you start sharpening your pitchforks and donning your hoods. Putting aside the bugs and glitches that hampered the games launch, or the regular hatred we all felt throughout the series for the non-entity that was Desmond, the biggest problem I had with the Revolution era stab-em up was Connor." (Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag, PC, PS3, PS4, Wii U, Xbox 360, Xbox One) 9/10

and who said this game would be killing it all year long? Yep, this guy right here. But then again, been doing this a long time. I called Red Dead Redemption before E3 in 2010 as well. Some games you can just analyze and see all the improvements and feature upgrades. Added with a good main lead and it's not hard to call. Once I played it over the summer at PAX. That's when I knew it was a done deal.

Wow how many times are you going to congratulate yourself on Ubisoft's success?

I have been looking forward to ACIV since the original E3 demo, but you don't see me getting off on being "right" about it. Down to three bubbles. Fantastic.


I've loved watching your descent into madness.

It wasn't you sitting on here month after month taking hit after hit from some unaware screen names saying I had no clue.

descent only happens on a site with a totally open and exploited bubble system. Yet, on my site it looks like this ( Threads 5,660,765 Posts 105,364,692 Members 7,326,576 ). I guess I got lucky and became number one in rep points. Odd how that is aye. Because it's modded fairly and we don't let people exploit the rep system. Out of the nearly 6 years I've been there. I've only been a Mod a year and a half. So I had to work my way up like everybody else.

You completely ignore what I ACTUALLY said. You clearly, completely lack reading comprehension. LOL!

Not at all, it's just how much of my time do I sit here wasting talking to screen names that don't really matter at all? At least I'm even coming back here to address you at all and I don't even need to click disagree. To childish and fits the behavioral pattern on here.

Besides, I have 11 hours to go until I pick up the console. I'll be so deep in this game coming here will not even cross my mind for some time.

No love for Connor again. Guess devs should just stick with the standard that appeals to a certain segment of our society.
