viva la revolution... err Assassin Creed
awesome awesome awesome!
even though just the mention of pachter gives me some trepidation about this.
But still, that would be so original and genius and fun and, for redundancies sake, awesome!
hmm okay, well yeah ill see what jeff says in the review
One of the major reasons Assassin's Creed worked the first time was because you were assassinating actual real people from the time period. Now, I happen to know there was no assassin's running on rooftops during the French Revolution. But, hey, if Ubisoft could make it work, fine by me. But I'm not sold just yet.
that..........doesn't seem to fit with the gameplay of the original. i'll be more convinced once i see a screenshot of the assassin in his 18th century outfit.
Considering how cut-throat the whole revolution was, and how closely tied it was to the American Revolution, it should be a rich and interesting setting. Just hope they take full advantage of it.
I really want to see the continuation of this series. The story was really compelling to me. Not the crusades part specifically, but the whole templars vs. assassins in the future (present day) thing
Didn't Napoleon die under mysterious circumstances? I wanna see Altair circle strafe around Napoleon.
could work, plenty of people to kill in the french revolution
as long as i dont have to do the same three side quests to get to an assassination im good.
I don't believe anything Michael Pachter says. The Bonus Round would be a much better show without him! Look forward to some Ryan Davis on the show though.
Is the topic '09 games?
I knew there is something special about Assassin's creed , from the travel back and forth in time and blur conspiracies to terrific gameplay and mind blowing graphics . I am really glad that they decided to change the time frame once more .
I think Assassin's creed franchise is a living breathing example of a true current generation game , a game that push aside the barrels that were previously surrounding gaming and let NEW Ideas flow in , I am just glad about this News .
@Ryan : thank you very much for the wonderful news , I think you along with Jeff are getting more and more popular in media , I am really happy about it .
Hope to see a day where Giant Bomb is the most credible gaming website on the net
French Revolution? Absolutely brilliant. I loved the first game and getting the second one just might be a no brainer.
I had never even considered that period of time as a possibility, which perhaps makes this that much more intriguing. I like it.
I have to agree with the comments so far; that it's hard to imagine an assassin running across rooftops in a French revolution era. However, I do hope they can find a way to make it work, because I really love games that take us to untreaded ground in time periods that are hardly covered.
When I think about it... that makes a lot of sense. I'd totally dig a game set during the french revolution, or some other time.
"Didn't Napoleon die under mysterious circumstances? I wanna see Altair circle strafe around Napoleon."
Actually, I think I would prefer feudal Japan. That would be sick. I will however buy Assassin's 2 one way or the other, and both would be good. I really liked the original, and the ending really left me thirsty for more Assassin's.
that game was dope enough so i don't care how the game ends. it did piss me off though.
the one thing that saddens me is that we have to say goodbye to Altair.
I really don't know why but I just wasn't compelled to finish the first games. I normally am a sticker for playing games through but I just didn't push through on this one. Might be time to finish it!
Oh man....whatever they decide to do, if they put the level of effort they did in the first one it'll be fantastic. This is looking to become my favourite game series ever (sorry Legend of Zelda).
Aesthetically pleasing, bad gameplay and marginal storyline...fix up the story and monotonous tasks and maybe you've got a game worth playing. Setting seems really cool, but to compare this series to the Zelda franchise is just inappropriate.
Oooh, nice scoop Lil' Ryan D...wow that makes you sound like a rapper.
Pachter might know a lot, but he's still an idiot. There is a difference between knowledge and intelligence, and Pachter clearly only possesses the former.
viva la france?
Nice, I can't wait for the Assassins Creed sequel. When the whole genetic memory premise was revealed before the first one came out, I speculated that the sequels would be set in different periods of time, with there being one that took place in the future (this was before I knew the game does take place in the future, so it would be present day Desmond) and be cyberpunked out. This setting sounds extremely interesting, but I still can't wait for the one that takes place in our future: cybernetic hand with a retractable dagger ftw!
Damn I cant wait for the sequel, this idea for the setting is good but I wouldnt mind it if it were modern day setting.
I however dont want it to be in ancient Japan
Hmmm, this could certainly make for an interesting storyline. As mentioned before that time period in France was full of plots and backstabbing which will work in very well with the Assassin's Creed storyinline
this is going to be worth the wait
That sacrebleu part nearly made me piss my pants laughing
Loved the first, was unfairly critised in my view. But can't wait to hea more about where the series is going.
didnt many of you see this coming...? the game clearly suggested that the Main Characters lineage was important and Altair was one peice of the puzzle. It sounds awesome if you ask me. If they queer the ending again though, their may be a revolution!
As long as it's still cool.
Its nothing but a rumor as of now honestly, everyone shouldn't take this as the absolute truth. Pachter is full of bullshit, and thinks he knows a lot but he doesn't. Anything he says can't be taken seriously.
I'm also going to mourn the loss of Altair, but this is a novel setting, and I'm completely sold if the mechanics are similar.
I'm trying to care - really, I am! But the first game was such a limp squid, I just can't get any excitment juices flowing at all...
Sounds like a good time period to set the game in and like you said, it's not a period that has been excessively used like WWII. However, I hope they find some way of bringing Altair back in the game even though it is set a few hundred years later, be a shame not to because Altair is the face of Assassin's Creed.
I'm honestly not surprised by this...but I'm far more interested in I Am Alive than another AC game.
This is a much cooler setting to me that has yet to be fully explored. Wow, I am actually interested in Assassin's Creed now.
Because this is 100% true and fact right? I don't get why everyone is accepting this for absolute sure. Pachter is full of bullshit, and nothing more.
Ooh! That sounds pretty cool. :)
Hmmm, my money was on South America / Conquistadores with you playing another of his ancestors who happened to be some kind of Jaguar Lady. 1700s though... how about Piratey Caribbean goodness?
The French revolution could be a very intertesting setting for a new game. It a time period not yet exhausted by game makers. Feudal Japan has been done enough already.
Hmmm....nice this should be interesting to see an assassin in the 1700's. But I was looking forward to more of Desmond and Stillman. Oh well...
