One of the most anticipated demo to be downloaded by the Xbox Live Marketplace and Playstation Network will not get released because Ubisoft rep informed that the company has "no plans" of releasing a demo for the game.
That is because the E3 demo sucked and they are afraid that gamers will turn their back on them.
They better spend their time debugging the heck out of the game instead of making a demo
I never even cared about this game, but now thanks to everybody being stupid and complaining about some stupid little bug, where the guy was stuck floating in the air, we are not gonna get a demo, because they are now too afraid of looking bad/any worst than they already do, because this bug. Stupid! thanks people, thanks for no demo
This is a game in progress and is many months away from the final build yet people are bashing it left and right. I wouldn't be suprised if e3 got even smaller because it might come to a point when nobody will want to show anything in fear of creating a negitive buzz before a game even has a chance to shine. If this happens we will only have ourselves to blame.
Yes there are some problems with the game as of right now but I don't think many people thought about its potential to be a truly amazing game. We just let bullsh!t cloud our vision.
I'm looking foward to this game and I think it will be amazing when it's finally released.
still got faith that this game will be pwnage. the guys got a frickin blade in his arm, and the games made by the prince of persia team, imagining an asassin version of PoP is awesome. its just a demo still and theyve got time to iron out the bugs.
still its funny how they let a buggy demo be shown, its not like it was a suprise showing they learned about 2 weeks before, this is E3 motha f!ckas!!
how many people would have bought Finest Hour if they didn't see the demo? i was thinking about that game until i played it!!! if they have something to hide, makes me think something might not be going to plan. hope this isn't the case. looks pretty cool.
They did have a better showing during the G4TV live demo...but the MS one had a lasting taste in the mouth of ...it still has work to be done. I wasn't turned off to the game...but a buggy demo on LIVE certainly could be damaging.
So...probably a smart move on their part.
The G4TV demo looked better because they skipped the jump into the hay, so you didn't see the window problems, and they completely bypassed the guy who was floating in mid air when he died. I'm not ripping on the game since I plan on buying it myself, I just find it a little funny that they didn't show any of the stuff that actually glitched in the first video.
i hear theres a really crazy secretive subtext and i bet a demo would spoil it.
even though the e3 ms play was lacking (and actually surprised me as i expected much more by this time) i'm still VERY excited for this game. that main character (do we know his name yet?) looks like a badass to the Nth degree. anyone see that sweet taxi driver dagger/blade thing that comes from his sleeve? holy crap yes!
however, i need to see more smoothness before pre-ordering which before yesterday was pretty much a definite. for me AC might be a day of release purchase at the earliest now.
His name is Altair, his ring finger was actually cut off in order to make room for the blade to actually take the place of the finger.
Also regarding the secretive subtext, they said a while ago that what you did during the time of the crusades had implications that led all the way up to present time.
thanks for the info, plus for you my friend.
I think the dagger thing was from Marathon Man and not Taxi Driver.
So lets hope they can sort the problems out before even thinking about a playable demo - how long until its released!?
Actually none of the conferences were all that great but Nintendo pretty much had the best things to say! Sony had Killzone 2 which honestly didn't blow me away but did look good and MS Had Halo3 which looked epic along with Mass Effects and COD4 which looked really really good! I'm still waiting to see a game that makes me go dam like the 1st time they showcased Halflife2 at E3!
yeah because da game sux no demo so no original for me :)
Ok, i won't buy it.
It wouldnt be because of how stupid the lame the demo was at E3 right??
@Seisser: You said it best.
@candystop: Shut up.
@I Shank you: You are wrong, I wear Blue ones.
Dude if this game were PS3 exclusive you would be all over it so just stop already with your BS because you want to believe that PS3 is the best thing ever!
I do plan to get this game (as in I've already reserved and paid it off), but even I have to admit the demo raised more questions than praise for me. Why does no one care that you just fell into a haystack? They said before that just dropping into the middle of a crowd would draw suspicion. Why were there five of the same people walking in a row? And was the developer doing something wrong or intentional to make the pot-carriers so easily drop their...well, pots? Because if it's THAT sensitive, that could take some of the fun out of things. Moving through a crowd should not only look naturual, it should't feel like a burden. And during the chase sequence, why do the people trying to stop you merely have to put out a hand and you come to an abrupt stop? The biggest drawing point for this game was the animation and parqour for me. The latter seems to be there in spades, but the animation isn't flowing as smoothly and logically as I'd hoped yet. I trust them to fix all of that though.
I have to agree with candystop on this one; Jin you are a fanboy in the purest sense of the word and "IF" it was exclusive you would have your stink all over this game.
you probably wear red tekken gloves while beating off on your PS3
We will see how the reviews will be for the game. I will not buy it if the reviews are not good.
On the other hand all the multi platform games loose on quality because the developers have to find a balance between the two consoles to make the game look the same on both of them. That way they can not use the straights of either console.
This was a 1st day buy for me, not after E3...
Now i am waiting for reviews and reactions to see if its any good
With all the holiday games, you can definitely find something else to put your money down on.
And also, when are the publishers going to wise up and ship some of these AAA games in the summer?
Yeah I pretty much agree with everybody here..
I think that even if they had to rush the E3 demo to make it in time and that was the reason why it sucked, the game didn't impress at all.
If the game really is coming up like that and it wasn't a rushed demo then they must be sh*tting their pants right now and that's why "ubisoft" decided not to release a demo.
Edit: Hey I really hope this game comes up good, because to tell you the truth this was one of the first games that got me exited this gen.
I hope they fix the bugs and improve a bit on visual and physics, because this game has the potential to be a classic.
I agree about the excitement for this game. Definitely poised as an open world Prince of Persia like experience. Now I'm worried that they've messed around with the combat from PoP to the point that AC will be lacking. The 5 guys surrounding Altair and attacking one at a time was extremely lame.
He pushed the other guy down and he fell correctly. It's a work in progress. The game looked great. The voice acting was rock solid and the fighting was decent. I loved the chase and what they were sayng about it. Lastly, the jump on the boss was amazing. I can already feel the production in this title.
Fully agree, I've Pre-ordered but now I may just 'forget' to pick it up.
after seing the demo at E3 it was obvious that it was a very limited demo. After they showed the demo at microsoft conference they also showed it for G4..... they guy played the demo the same way... it took the same path... why? If the game is so open end... why would he do that?... one explantation... this demo was put together to be played in way one way... once I saw that and the floating body.. I said.. no demo for us...
o well no demo
i was buying not now
Definitely agree that these days, without a demo, it's very difficult to plunk down $60, regardless of reviews. I'd rather get to try it out myself first.
damn I wanna climb like a monkey
I'm not going to completely pass judgement quite yet, even though it looked way buggy at E3. I'm really intrigued by the game, so I may still give it a chance. The cityscapes and environments looked great. Hopefully they can tweak the gameplay quite a bit before launch. Not providing a demo is still kind of a cop-out if you ask me.
IT'S A E3 DEMO!!!!!!! THEY ALREADY INTERVIEWED ONE OF THE DEVELOPERS FOR THE GAME AND SHE SAID THAT THEY FINAL BUILD ALREADY HAS THAT PROBLEM FIXED WAY BEFORE THE DEMO WAS EVER SHOWN!!!!!!!!!
Seriously you guys, this game is going to kick major ass, most of you are being way too critical on a game that has only been shown in a form of a demo.
the hell out of the game, and then shows a lame demo like that, you better expect quite a reaction. What company would show a lame demo like that on basically the worlds biggest stage and then expect people to foget about all those bugs and lame fighting Scenes. Dont give me any crap about its a DEMO. There were many other DEMO's out there, and they looked BAD ASS!!!
KZ2, COD4, BIOSHOCK and others.
So please, think before you speak, you cant hide behind the fact that its a demo, there is no excuse as to how lame and boring that was. The pots would fall and disapear before they even hit the ground!!
The guy floating was funny but easily fixable. Don't expect that kind of crap in the finished product.
What is more concerning is the combat. Five guys surround Altair and attack one at a time? WTF? No one stabs him in the back? Is this 1995 game design?
Ohh god, this is Too Human all over again! The game had some spots that could be done better (the crowd) but it also had some strong points (new ip, the freerunning was VERY well done and the gfx look great) but it was a Demo of an uncompleted game it is going to have issues. That being said I do believe that pulling the demo was in fact done as damage control.
Did anyone else notice the strange energy coming out of the main guy during certain points of the game? This coupled with the strange computer message when you die makes me wonder what is going on here that we don’t know about. They are cloaking the fact that this game is tied to the future in some way which makes me extremely curious about this game.
And the reason is not nothing stupid like the guy getting suck on the roof, and I don't really think that's the reason other people are not buying it now either.
I think the main reason is because the game play was a huge let down - in particular the fight scene which Looked extra weak. seemed like a button presser with some different moves. The guards all took their time and attacked one at a time and they had no block or defense they just attack and get killed.
White ghosting on every person your suppose to attack not good. I didn't like that, I would have liked it better if I didn't know which one was going to strike first. That way I'm trying to time it.
And maybe this will be fixed in the beta but how bad was it that you jump off of a roof and land in hay, and it doesn't even move. No hay get's on the floor or pop's up as you hit the hay stack. Are you serious? someone please fix that.
And the crowd, while it looked amazing and seemed really nice, the crowd was also really dumb at times. That was a little bit of a let down. but all in all I will rent it and check it out, if it's good then I will buy it.
Frankly, given the shape of the game (i.e., it's in test/debug phase), they need to put all their attention into getting the game ready for the November release. If they divert attention to develop a demo, they will either ship something just as shoddy as was shown or they'll miss the holiday buying bonanza.
That's a bad Jade Raymond, bad bad. Get over here and let me spank you.
I'm so glad it SUCKS!!!Thats what you get UBI!!
after seen the video couple of times, i think it doesn't look that bad, I did not see a guy stuck floating in the air. I hope they correct those mistake, because i can't wait any more.
