    Assassin's Creed (Unity) anyone?

    Hey there!

    Are there any gamers here? Okay, okay. I know that Guntur probably is the biggest gamer around. So I thought I'd ask you about this. Assassin's Creed Unity has just been released. Do you plan on buying/playing the game? As for me, I've enjoyed AC, ACII, Brotherhood, Revelations and ACIII very much. Tough I've not finished ACIII yet due to a lack of time. I wasn't really interested in Black Flag when it came out and I'm not sure if I want to play a pirates AC. ACIII had enough pirates in it. At least for me. But not Unity has been released and I wonder if it's worth a try? So maybe some of you can let me know what you think. Many people on Steam were angry because it seems to be filled with bugs. And of course you need uplay to run the game. I hate uplay since it made my AC: Revelations crash on startup and I needed months to fix it. But I guess I'd have to live with it. However, my computer is probably to old for Unity. We'll see. For now, I'm interested in your thoughts.

    Do you play the new part of the Assassin's creed series or have you ever played one of the old ones?

    I'm a huge fan of the other Assassin's Creed games - I did enjoy AC, The Ezio Trilogy, and AC Black Flag to some extent. I'm not sure why, but I'm not much a fan of ACIII...probably because there's just not enough stealth in it for my taste and I ended up feeling less like an assassin and more like a thug with a tomahawk.

    Unfortunately, Assassin's Creed Unity is not available for PS3 and PS3 is the only gaming platform available to me at the moment. I plan to purchase AC Unity as soon as I get my hands on my own PS4 or a better gaming PC, but when that'll happen is anyone's guess. *shrugs*
    At least I have AC Rogue to look forward to.

    I really love the Co op gameplay that they shown to us like a couple of month before, Yeah, AC:U is really heavy duty for PS3 or even my PC. It just one of the game that introduce a new video game generation in term of power and usage.


    *pssttt* They put DRM on top of DRM on Unity and forced people to use uPlay so uh.... PC user, I'd say that avoid this until they fix it for our liking.

    I'm with Dare there.

    I love AC, but only have older generation platforms.
    Maybe that'll change this Christmas.

    But I'm excited!



    First I gotta break in Gauntlet Legends....

    Ah, thanks for the heads up.
    Things like that are one of the reasons why I haven't been much of a PC gamer later.

    Well you could try Linux gaming in this coming time.

    Yeah, I always avoid any extra DRM related like that happened with Sim City, Diablo 3, and latest ubisoft product. I know a lot of high class gamers going to pick up the best platform for a game, like PS4 as you mention earlier.

    Oh I love AC series, but as I just finished third one about 3 months ago and have only played 2h of Liberation on PS Vita means that I probably wont get Unity any time soon. Also ACIV is the only game I have on PS4 currently, but I still have about 10 games left to finish on PS3 before I'm moving on to PS4 which I have had since Last Christmas. Co-Op sounds interesting though, but another thing on that is regions as when I played Brotherhood online with my brother on EU servers from US the lag was horrible.

    On a semi-related note, the reviews and memes have started already.
    Does anyone know how accurate this particular gem is?

    I didn't know these meme or understand about it. I think it's pretty accurate.

    I think the bigger meme for Assassin's Creed is the glitches they had during launch, which is funny but irrelevant since it's a known issue.

    I'm sure people who bought it right now have the issues fixed by now.

    As far as I know the note is quite accurate. Sad, but true. In order to open certain cecst, you need to run an an app or something like that. At least that's what some let's Players said on their reviews. And you can buy certain weapons with REAL Money which is... not my thing. I mean after spending from 50-80$ on the game, I don't want to spend any more money just to get 100% out of the game...

    Thank you all for your comments on this! Right now my computer is far from being able to play AC:Unity... It's not up to the "Next-Gen-Games" at all. So I'll probably try out Black Flag first (perhaps there'll be a special offer on steam. Who knows?) and Rogue. But first, I have to complete AC:III.

    Yeah Microtransaction is a plague in the video game at the moment, no matter if the game free or not. They just want extra cash for everything that could squeeze our money.


    Oh, AC stuff was on discount for 75% on certain retailers last week, sadly it's gone now.

    safe for far cry series on steam. Though when it comes to AC I don't think I really have any AC games I don't already have plus I don't really care to play AC on PC where the sales usually are.

    Finally managed to drag myself away from DA:I to start playing AC Rogue.
    Now it's settled - I'm definitely going to have to purchase a next-gen gaming system sometime within the next 4 months, just for AC Unity.
    I'm going to wait for the price to drop a bit though...from what I understand, there are still a lot of bugs.

    Did they fixed all the stuff in the game? like the massive glitches on the face and other noticeable bugs.

    I'm glad you guys have free season pass for this game.

    MY PS3 and PS4 are both busted. PS4 broke 1st of January, just 12 days after warranty and only played it maybe 4-5h in that time frame so most likely had defective model begin with. My PS3 which is first gen with backwards compatibility and 4USB outlets got yellow light of death though that is acceptable as I have had it for over 7 years. Just took it to repairs yesterday and should be repaired in next few days. Anyways, as of now I have been playing my PS Vita so I might give AC Liberation a try. Still gotta beat AC4 before I will get unity though and as my PS4 is busted and I'm not in a hurry to repair it, so it might be a while before AC: Unity will happen.

    Soooooo, it's a couple years later and I've FINALLY gotten around to starting AC: Unity.

    I don't know why, but for some reason this game doesn't feel like Assassin's Creed to me. Maybe because I've spent more time chasing down purse thieves and/or breaking up street fights than I have doing actual assassination missions, or maybe it's the lack of modern day plot...or maybe it's just 'cause I haven't played an AC game in while (thank you for distracting me, Skyrim & Fallout 4).

    Whatever the reason, I'm really not feeling this game and it's like I'm playing this more out of obligation than actual enjoyment. Then again, I've only completed the first 30%, so maybe things will get better. We'll see.


    UPDATE:
    It is now August, 2017. I hate this game. Hate.

    There was a little comeback for the series, People said Origin is good and go "Back to Root". I believe others will agree on this one, while I'm not a big stealth gamer but Odyssey and the Greek background with large combat is a go to for me.

    I also bought Assassin's Creed Chronicles, I am yet to play India and Russia game.
