Can never tell if you're serious.

E3 AWARDS WOOHOO! THEY MEAN SO MUCH!

Might be my imagination but it didn't seem to look half as pretty there as at E3. Looked early next-gen/late old-gen quality in some parts.

Engine looks sooo outdated now.

You guys still remember first gameplay videos of AssCreed1 ? This looked stunning for its time.

in terms of poly count and textures, sure, it isnt going to win any awards. but the amount of characters on-screen is impressive considering it's open world. but then again it's only having to render an open, empty field...so i guess it free's up memory for other things...so...erm...yeah...carry on.

I would say this is a major limitation of the consoles in general. If all gaming was on PC the engine may have been updated in the knowledge it is easy to upgrade a PC. Push the boundaries out a bit more so to speak.

Most open world games perform like crap on PC as well...GTAIV, Saints Row 3, Red Faction Guerilla....

Take a look at Red Dead Revolver...one of the best looking open world games and it's on 360 (PS3 version doesn't count! :P)

This game is using a new engine, so I find it hard to believe it's outdated before it has even been released yet.

Get ready for flag waving vomit inducing American propaganda of the highest order, with a good dose of Brit murdering thrown in.

Hard to believe this is from a French/Canadian developer. They should be ashamed.

Yeah the marketing of this game is all wrong, it's not at all what the game should be. Connor's meant to be neutral, right? But in trailers, he's only killed redcoats, American flags everywhere, and now using "amazing grace" as the trailer song. What's next, Connor has bald eagle helmet as DLC?

Stupid PR misjudging their own game.

I like how in one sentence you both slam the American flag waving and then go on to seemingly act like video game violence matters now that it's the British being murdered by the player.

dont want to piss off american sales.. you know they take that shit to heart. You cant mindless chant U.S.A whilst watching the union jack flying about and americans being killed.

Assassins been killing 'brits' for years anyway.
Commented on 2012-07-03 00:28:46
I'm not really bothered what sort of advertisment campaign they have. I do find it odd that there hasnt been a SINGLE american being killed tho in ANY of the promotional material they've released. At the minute all we have is their word that you kill both sides equally, just hope they stick to it.

From my understanding, the lack of Connor killing Americans stems more from plot twists than from anything else. It seems like Connor will likely be allied with the Americans early on (as everything we have seen has indicated), and then the game will reveal that the conspiracy is much larger than he anticipated, and also involves some of the founding fathers or something along those lines. Games typically keep some of that stuff under wraps you know?

And for all the whiners complaining that there are American flags, songs (BTW, Amazing Grace is actually an English hymn), and anthems, let's not forget that the game takes place on American soil, with the lead character being half "Native American", during the American revolution. If you hate Americans so much, this game might be a little too "American" for you. As one the despised ones, I could care less who I am killing as long as the story is decent and the gameplay is good. I also don't know any Americans that would give a damn who they are killing in a game like this, but feel free to keep your stereotypes and misconceptions if they help you sleep at night...

I'm pretty sure there is going to be a twist to the whole thing. Wouldn't just take it all at face value.

he's also half English. you'd think they'd have shown SOMETHING in regards to the yanks being the enemy?
Commented on 2012-07-03 11:31:17
Not impressed.
Commented on 2012-07-03 12:43:36
I think everyone needs to look up the actual history of what happened to any and all Native Americans before arguing which "side" they were on. Sheesh.

    GriftGFX Well.. not true. They briefly kicked ass on Xbox and PS2. (39 minutes ago)

    GriftGFX Maybe that's good for their business, but as a fan of their games things haven't been so great since the Dreamcast died. (40 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Yea that worked out great for Sega. Their internal development has declined significantly since going third party. Their role as a publisher is more important now. (1 Hour ago)

    Sdarts I wish Nintendo all the best with the NX and hope they succeed. But to be completely honest, I wouldn't mind if Nintendo did what Sega did and we got to play their games on PlayStation, Xbox and PC. (1 Hour ago)

    Sdarts future where a mobile only gaming only handheld can be successful enough to justify itself. Not that can't make money, just that it won't be worth based on the ROI. (1 Hour ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts So there's an active erosion of both Nintendo old customers and potential new consumers that mobile gaming is taking from Nintendo. I agree with NX consolidating both markets, but I just don't see a (1 Hour ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts Yes, but I believe most of Nintendo fans from the 80's, 90's and early 00's are fathers or mothers now. And they mostly game on smarthphones, so their children are growing up with tablets/smartphones. (1 Hour ago)
