Dont forget Gamers also want always online DRM, oh and day 1 DLC, [email protected] you EA I mean Ubisoft

nukeitall3468d ago

I can understand anger towards DRM and maybe DLC, but I do believe consumers do want an annual Assassin's Creed game.

I mean every year, people keep buying it and it tops the charts.

So again, what is the issue?

Tr10wn3468d ago

yeah especially when they improve the damn thing, im playing ac3 and looking forward black flag already.

TopDudeMan3468d ago

@Tr10wn by the time you get to the end of AC3, you'll want to retract that statement.

SageHonor3468d ago

It's funny. With COD its the same way and that game gets ripped apart

KaBaW3467d ago

The difference, to me, is that CoD is basically always the same.
Change a few weapon skins, player skins, map layouts, killstreak names.
They don't really add anything new; new features, new ideas, new.. stuff.
They might add one new thing a year, always been the same engine.
Assassins Creed has changed a lot and added stuff every new iteration.

You're comparing DRM and day 1 DLC to annual franchises?

I don't want one every year.

When I play a game, I like to be amazed. Likes it's fresh and new.

AC games never feel that way to me.

1st was the best.

krazykombatant3468d ago

yup the first one was fresh, it went in an era of time in which not many console games go into. Lastly, the combat whilst not as fluid as it is now, it was much more difficult. Fighting a templar was always a little bit of a challenge. AssCreed games are wayyyy tooo easy.

KaBaW3467d ago

Agreed. I loved the fighting better.. way better back in AC1.
You're an assassin.. not a super hero who can murder everyone.

MikeMyers3468d ago

The 1st one had lots of potential but it wasn't the best one. Assassin's Creed II was better IMO.

Gamers might want a new one every year but they need to make them more special by not pumping them out so fast. I would like to see proper releases so that they have time to really make a great game. Otherwise we are headed into a sports franchise where they don't have the time to make a great product.

So far, I think Brotherhood was the best. Haven't played Revelations or AC3 yet although I fully plan to. This series just gets better and better in my opinion. Just working through Liberation right now but not that far in. So far, I'm intrigued. It's quite different and yet still familiar. I liked that I could finish playing Brotherhood, pick up my Vita and jump into Liberation with nearly zero learning curve as far as controls go.

The only reason I'd like them to space these games out more is simply because I find I'm falling behind with so many great games in my collection I don't have time to play. :)

We would buy a new fresh ip from your studio with the same quality as assassins creed, but we can't promise that it will sell as much as AC, so...nevermind.

Not me I want whatch dogs and far cry

Keep milking the franchise, Ubisoft.
I read somewhere that drinking too much milk can turn you white.
If that's true, the people who keep buying these games will eventually look like KKK members on a Daz commercial.

Whiter than White. lmfao.

"Cleaner Close - Episode 69...

Daryll is playing the new Assassins Creed game.
