What I like about this diary is that they seem to focus on a story driven campaign, that is much richer than the first AC.
At the end: will he be able to shoot bullets from a hidden weapon? That would be a great new feature. I surprised meself that I didn't realise that there was already gun powder in that period of time and that it could be part of the game.

I've heard that he will have one bullet to use in a tight situation.

This is rental for me. After all repetative as hell sandbox games from Ubisoft (AC, Far Cry 2, PoP 2008... all of them absolutelly amazing technically, but the gameplay get so boring after first 2-3 hours) i cannot pay full price for next one.

If its like the first one, I'll rent it or buy it on ebay after a few months. The first game was very cool in concept and execution at first, but it got boring after awhile. Hopefully this one will remain interesting in both gameplay and story from start to finish

About the game


What's up?
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @KORNdog: Speaking of Spiders, I finished Technomancer yesterday. Fun game but dragged down by WAY too much backtracking and lack of different locations. (11 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @KORNdog: I'm not far enough into the game yet but I heard the game world is very interesting and full of great quests with multiple choices. Those kinda things sound great to me. (11 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog i honestly think they'd do better making something on a smaller scale. like an isometric action RPG. that spiders (developer) could do with going that direction too. (12 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @Moonwalker: it just looks like a typical game from them to me. like they bit off more than they can chew and the results are just mediocrity across the board. (12 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @KORNdog: the facial animations are bullshit yes, animations in general are passable, combat isn't nearly as bad as I expected though. The world so far has been great, very very nice indeed. (13 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @Moonwalker: it still looks all kinda of garbage though. lol (13 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker tearing was horrible, not to mention loading times. Plus it really doesn't look too bad either. Trees and foliage swaying in the wind, nice lighting. Good job PB. course all the jank is still there :) (13 Hours ago)
