"zero mentioning of an animus in this game" Classic Brad missing everything written and said throughout the whole game.

Edited by HatKing

I'm several soloed gin tonics in and this came just before I bored myself to death.

Edit: ACIII took place at the outset of the Revolutionary War, guys. Possibly the entire thing, but I didn't finish the game so that's anybody's guess. Anyway, it's pretty easy to place when that game took place. I thought you were a nerd, Brad. Image shattered. And I'm drunk.

Also I'm going to pretend I'm offended that you guys are laughing at this laughable representation of my Cajun ancestry. HOW DARE YOU, RACISTS!

This game seems kinda terrible.

Posted by frozensquozen

I wonder how much work this would take to get onto next-gen systems using the AC4 engine. Presumably more than they expect to make back in sales at this stage of the cycle.

An hour-long surprise Quick Look? Awesome!

Posted by Humanity

I'm insanely bored with no new game releases, have beaten Black Flag and thoroughly enjoyed that. I received AC3 as a free gift with the purchase of a new SSD. Is AC3 a lot like this? Because I'm very much on the cusp of installing it just to play something but I sure as heck don't want to play anything that resembles the utter boredom that seems to be Liberation.

The reason the game is running badly on the machine they're playing is because anti aliasing on high and highest will kill framerate like a motherfucker. With AA on Medium, and everything else maxed out, the game runs at a steady 60fps, at least for me. Both AC3 and AC4 run at 40fps at the same settings so take that however you will. 'Tis a shitty engine for PC but this port isn't very demanding.

Jeff is at his best when he is asserting his opinion. I always get a kick out of him.

Alligator eggs. I'm so hungry!!! Love the accents, also. French wemen and swamp water makes me so horny.

I wish Alex, you know the guy who review this, was here and not the three guys who know nothing. But what can you do

I want to play this, but I know I should wait since I did just beat 4.

So youve beaten and played every game made then?

Well Brad...

Appropriately stealthy Quick Look.

Posted by TheVGamer

@ilikepopcans: After four AC games of having a quick menu, you'd think something like that would come off as natural to them. But NOPE! Sometimes, it can be so frustrating to watch Brad play games...

Posted by thebunnyhunter

Would it be better to play it on a Vita if you have one?

The framerate kind of sucks from what I remember (I didn't finish it). So, I would say no unless you really want it portable.

Posted by steelerzfan101

I totally forgot about this release. It kinda makes sense though.

Also...liking the SNQL

My thoughts exactly, although maybe that's just because I played IV too recently

Hold down R1 and X or RB and A to crouch in any Assassin's Creed game Brad.

Posted by cannedstingray

Vinny should have been driving this QL. Brad has not played enough AC to be proficient enough. Also it's really hard to watch him ignore on screen prompts and wonder aloud what he is missing.

That along with the knowledge of being able to spot the paths along trees, and Brad completely missing them is not fun to watch.. (On screen), "Desyncronized, you were spotted", (Brad) "wait, why did i fail the mission"??

Posted by csl316

My first experience with AC since the original was the Aveline DLC on PS4. It felt miles past the first and made a great first impression.

So I probably shouldn't play this since my Aveline experience has been 100% positive so far.

unfortunately very true. I try not to mention/care too often though - after awhile it just doesn't matter.

But Brad IS suuuuper quick to correct/disagree with the crew on the bombcast - I'd love to see Jeff/Vinny turn it on em' and correct him in a similar fashion. But I think they have given up/dont care as well.

Yeah, that was weird. I only played the Vita version, so I don't know if they've changed any story stuff in the PC/PS3 release, but the Vita version flat out started with the Abstergo logo, and someone congratulating you on your purchase of this new piece of Animus home entertainment technology, and doing the exact same kind of meta-commentary that AC 4 does. In Liberation you don't play as a game developer at Abstergo though - you play as a consumer enjoying their latest product.

I treat combat in these game like combat in Jrpg random encounter grinding.

bash A and occasionally do something else.

Posted by Scotto

Was their surprise at the two wrist blades genuine, or sarcastic? They realize you've had two since (I think) AC2, right?

Anyway, this game doesn't look great, but it's a $20 port of a handheld game, so my expectations weren't exactly high.

Posted by Kevin_Cogneto

Oh good, if there's one thing we don't have enough of, it's Assassin's Creed games.

Posted by ICantBeStopped

@jeff @vinny The difference is in their morphology. You can tell one from another by their snouts. Crocodiles jaws taper into a pointed shape, while alligators snouts are wide and rounded at the end. Saltwater is not a differentiater, no crocodilian likes saltwater. Nile crocodiles, for example, don't live in saltwater, and while there is a kind called 'saltwater crocodiles', they use the ocean to go from place to place without dying, they don't thrive there.

Game looks like doggy doodo

Posted by TDot

I've always been interested in this game merely because it has a non-white non-male protagonist and in the gaming industry that sadly makes it more interesting that most other games.

Posted by AV_Gamer

This is a decent HD port and a good start for Rihanna's career in video games.

A non-white, non-male focus in anything is pretty unconventional.

That doesn't make it interesting, different the most but not interesting.

Are you really asking that? Yes it was clearly sarcasm....

Edited by Draxyle

I agree with Brad, it's strange that there's no "stealth crouch" stance in the series yet. I don't know if that would change anything, but I have had a couple moments where I was caught because I couldn't hide behind a chest-high wall.

The stealth in general really needs an overdue overhaul. ACIV is awesome, but you can still feel the age of the mechanics for any mission not involving a boat.

Posted by Carzo

I played Liberation before AC3 and I really enjoyed the tree running. The bayou is pretty much path impeding swamp water with trees above to ease travel

The game can be a pain, but Brad slumping around in the water, going to all way points in a straight line, didn't help

Posted by NTM

@draxyle: I feel like Assassin's Creed (except for three) gives you exactly what you need to, to accomplish what needs to be done, and nothing more. That was something I would have liked early on, since you have games like Splinter Cell or the Arkham games and what have you that do it, so playing an AC game feels like it would benefit from it. That being said, I thought AC4 was perfectly fine with the way it was and gave the player enough options to get past areas that pushed you to sneak.

i would go with NIDHOGG personally

Edited by AcidBrandon18

I like how Brad says the step-mom seems pretty cool. Boy, is he in for a surprise when he reaches the end of the game. Well, if he does finish it that is.

Posted by RonGalaxy

Is it just me, or was Vinny dropping sexual innuendo left and right in this QL?

Edited by Juda

Not the first QL where Jeff starts to get impatient with Brad.
