HEY YOU!

There's some AC3 story talk in here, even during the Need for Speed portions. If you have successfully engaged in a media blackout of the game and its story, and would like to remain pure, you may want to sample some of our other quality products.

I was very disappointed when I found out the multiplayer Wolfhound pure co-op mode was not about hunting wolves with a posse but instead about stabbing dudes. I don't think the AC multiplayer they've been rocking is fun at all, if I want to run around and stab dudes I can do that in the single player without worrying about someone about to stab me.

The ACIII review, if it even exist, will be hilarious. The review is hitting "late," Ryan gets in a dick off between some ACIII support guy on twitter, and then he spoils the game during a live stream. Ryan will hate Ubisoft forever after this.

@Vinny: HEY VINNY. I WANNA BE A WIZARD.

At least he didn't spoil Cortana having a digital penis and being pregnant with Master Chief's sodomy baby.

I am still butthurt over having the game completely spoiled without any kind of warning. Kind of a dick move by Ryan.

@Vinny: That's actually super helpful, thanks duder. This will be pushed off into my GB backlog along with the AC3 quick look for now.

@Brandino: I dont even play Assassin's Creed.

FUCK DA POLICE.

@Vinny: Sorry, Vinny.  I haven't been pure since Tetris Axis happened. (3 minutes in!)

Cool? Are you saying you care? Don't care? Trying to understand the point of this.

Not sure why Ryan has been flyin' so fast and loose with the AC3 info. I don't play the series at all, but stopped the quick look immediately the other day when he wouldn't guarantee no major plot twist spoilers. I might play someday, and have considered straight up jumping in on AC3 because the American Revolution aspect has me interested... so i want to avoid spoilers. Not sure what a QL is worth if you're giving away big plot points, frankly.

Love the site though, and had two take downs early on Jeff tonight (one accidental) with my TEAMBRAD plates. First time being in the game on a TNT. Good times!

Also still not sure i love the elimination aspect of the online challenges... kind of takes the pure joy feeling out of things that Burnout had. I just want to fly off some sick ramps, not worry about dudes parking on it and taking me out.

Had to switch into v1 of Parchment just to make this post...having all sorts of issues with GB lately. 
 
Anyway, to be fair, you can't play 30-45 minutes of AC3 without story spoilers. And you never know when a big bit of info may leak out of a characters mouth. The entire series is built around shard turns (including the fantastic AC: Rev, Ryan is off on that one), you can't do much to avoid it.

This TNT was awesome because I got to play both of the games with the duders and they called out my disc swapping abilities. I don't know who that imposter in the chat was but I definitely don't have Gamefly.

Posted by Supersoaker

@Brandino: Listen, I'm not gonna say much, but if you're offended by finding out spoilers, I don't know. Maybe you should start getting past that a little bit and realize that besides that there is this whole fleshed out story for you to explore.

If the entire game can be spoiled by one sentence, it's probably not that good.

I guess I will be putting off all assassins creed GB content until I get and finish the game... I'm not even in a media "blackout" but I don't really want any significant spoilers... At this point I wouldn't be surprised if the review started with a spoiler warning...

Posted by AssInAss

BTW, that's Daniel Bloodworth on the most wanted poster from Gametrailers :)

Posted by chikin_n_rofls

I'm sad to say that I've also been pretty disappointed with Giant Bomb's coverage of ACIII. I love spontaneity as much as the next guy, but this is just careless.

Enjoying the rest of the story in spite of having one small detail of the plot not be a complete surprise when it happens?

Ludicrous.

Posted by AaronChance

Burnout Crash was garbage even on IOS. Just a complete disappointment.

Posted by Supersoaker

@Amafi: Yeah, I don't know. I'm not saying that what Ryan did was okay, but it's an inevitability. Like you're gonna hear about it one way or another.

Edited by Death_Burnout

Won't lie, very glad the Ubisoft servers went down because now it's a single game TNT. Yay.

But then it turns into Ryan's giant AC cast...Which now I know I don't need to get AC III anytime soon.

Posted by Dezztroy

Gotta love Ubisoft's inability to keep their servers up for even an hour.

This was my fist time playing in a TNT. it was super fun.

Same here, shame the servers couldn't even stay up for a single session though. :(

Posted by alternate

I heard Ryan spoils the ending of AC3 - or at least dropped a heavy hint. Anyone have a time stamp for this? Not bothered about the little spoilers but would rather avoid this.

cheers

Well you could spoil Empire Strikes Back from saying Darth Vader is Lukes father. Ryan just acting like a child spoiling games 1 day after release, just cause he felt insulted from some guy on Ubisoft calling him "buddy", Your a fucking reviewer all you got to do is not spoil games one of the only things you can't do in your job and you fucked it up.

if your "running around" to kill ppl on the multiplayer your doing it wrong and imo ruin most of the game modes for others.

Its about stealth and tactics not runny stab stab

Mother fucker, I didn't read Vinnys comment and now I'm a little sad.

Posted by cbarnes86

If people are getting butt hurt about Ryan saying this is the end for Desmond, Ubisoft came out and said this before the game even came out. If anyone spoiled it, Ubisoft did.

Edited by DexterKid

I'm glad to hear that they are wrapping up the Desmond stuff tbh. I've hated Desmond and his bullshit since AC2. He was interesting in the first game when he was just being used as a guinea pig by the templars for his DNA memories and all that stuff; it was a cool and unique concept. But the jump in 2 from him just being a normal dude to suddenly becoming an Assassin himself was really forced to begin with. It then became even more retarded when he was literally transforming into Ezio and learning all of the exact same moves, even though you would think that learning the skills of a renaissance era Assassin wouldn't be so useful in modern day combat. And the final straw was at the end of AC2, when that annoying blonde chick handed Desmond a fucking antique wrist-blade to use against the bad guys who themselves were carrying stupid little sticks as weapons!

So good riddance to that. To me this franchise has always been about the historical stuff first and foremost, and the modern day animus aspect always seemed like an excuse just to allow them to jump around these different time periods and let you stab historical figures in the face.

Posted by TheMasterDS

@SilenceUK: I don't like stealth in Assassin's Creed. That's sort of the weird thing about the series since 2, it's always been a lot more fun to just run up to groups of dudes and fight them straight up then do things like running away, hiding, and not murdering everyone.

its the fact that there was absolutely no warning of a spoiler talk during NFS. Some people are ok with spoilers but the game has been out for 4 days. And after he said that the chat started spoiling more.
