I can't believe it! Ubisoft stole the title of "most milked franchise" from Activision this year! Congratulations!
oh no the wii u wont get anymore shovel garbage like shit creed or call of duty!
WII U IS DEAD NO 3RD PARTY SUPPORT WII U IS DEAD WII U IS DEAD NO 3RD PARTY SUPPORT WII U IS DEAD WII U IS DEAD NO 3RD PARTY SUPPORT WII U IS DEAD WII U IS DEAD NO 3RD PARTY SUPPORT WII U IS DEAD
How in the everloving fuck can they crap out a new Asscreed game every year?
Why don't they spend some more time polishing their games and improve them? The controls and gameplay have become stale as fuck. Still the same, wooden controls.
I think if they took another 6 months to a year for black flag that game could have actually had good pirating instead of the bare bones bullshit we got.
I think the same could be said for each one.
>literally AC Red and Blue versions
Its really hard to tell if this is funny or just sad at this point
I guarantee they're going to make the next AC game take place in China with this chick as the protagonist from that one short movie.
>New gen game
>You play as pretty much the same character in the same setting you've played a billion times BUT THIS TIME THERES 3 OTHER GUYS.
>Probably no boats, the only interesting thing in 4.
>Last gen game
>Play as a Templar, who have been revealed to actually kinda be the good guys now
>Boats confirmed as fuck
>You hunt bitch ass nigga assassins
Good job fucking up your already overwhelmingly fucked up series, Ubisoft.
Will pirate Rogue, won't even bother with Unity.
i pirated assassins creed a few games ago, i honestly dont even remember what one it was because they make a new one every year. I played that for about 20 minutes i got so fucking bored, i deleted the torrent from my computer.
I honestly am not going to even waste my time with pirating this game.
Literally a huge waste of time/space.
>lists three different platforms
>not enough arctic/winter settings in open world games
>what a fucking new asscreed game? They haven't even gotten unity out

people bitch when a game on pc gets scaled down to work well on last gen (battlefield 3 is a good example) but when they fix this by making two different games everyone gives them hate
you guys are fuckign impossible to please
>implying the aryan race cares for such games
This is reaching 2008 Guitar Hero levels of milking
Ubisoft is weeding out the updated bloods and in the past crips.
One game for a newer console, one for older console.
Reminds me of pic related
Yeah, they're the stretchy kind of milker. They milk the same 2 games for over 30 years without producing anything else of note. Plus, they have rabid fans who are obsessed with these games, more so than any other fan.
I still only care if they make the naval progression more interesting.
I don't want crew to be a number, I want it to be a list of names each with their own skills that improve the ship as a whole.
I want to need to feed my crew and worry about morale.
I want to have to buy or steal cannons from other ships, and lose them if I take a bad hit while health is lower than a certain threshold.
I want to be able to get bigger and better ships.
They would need to have ALL of that in order to get my money.
>Exclusively on PS3 and 360
>mfw PC-only retarded fanboys bought old-gen consoles just to play that one game
HOLY SHIT, A GAME ABOUT A WHITE GUY WITH A GOATEE HIDDEN PARTIALLY BY A HOOD
HE SEEMS MENACING...
HOLY SHIT ANOTHER GAME WITH A WHITE GUY WITH A GOATEE HIDDEN PARTIALLY BY A HOOD
HE SEEMS MENACING...
putting both in the system at the same time.
Not to mention that the biggest thing they're complaining about is a game developer making games
They're saying how they never play the games, then they're bitching that they keep making games
How the fuck are these people even affected then
So current gen is getting a Blac Flag Sequel we all wanted while next gen gets a shitty AC cut and paste city once more.
How did they think this was a good idea?
Nothing to see here people, move along.
I want to come inside Rouge instead
>tfw the PS3 assassin's cred sounds better than the PS4 one
>You'll play Shay Patrick Cormac, a Templar tasked with thinning the Assassin's ranks. As expected, you'll be sailing around the Northern Atlantic Ocean in a ship called the Morrigan, as well as exploring New York and the Appalachian River Valley.
They fucked up
during the crash in the 80's game developers were making tons of games
tons and tons of games, shovel ware games they dont put any effort or originality into
this literally caused the video game crash of the 1980's
shovelware, unoriginality, taking the consumer for granted
only the young or stupid dont remember the past
I second this
Yeah they can be glitchy but I think I love trying to be stealthy and climbing architecture the best
Shame I don't plan on going next gen, some of the buildings in unity looked pretty good
>mfw Blue team is watching red team down the hole
I literally couldn't have givena fuck about Unity, but Now I've head about Rogue I'm excited as fuck for it.
Congratulations ubisoft you fucking morons, why don't you actually listen to your fans before making a next gen AC game. We don't want cities, we want boats.
Too bad a new crash won't happen because games are mainstream now and retards will gobble anything corporations shit out and ask for more
>Two Ass Is Red games within a month of each other
>All Prince of Persia got in the last several years was a mobile phone game
Sometimes? At least the sanic fanbase doesn't bombard you all the fucking time with their games.
Everywhere I read something about vidya on the internet, I see a mention of Zelda or Mario. It's getting really tiring, no other games have been talked about so much, no other games have spawned such a diarrhea of fanart and shit like that. It's been over 20 fucking years, get over it already, jesus fucking christ, at least talk about the newer zelda/mario games.
They will probably have some shitty story ready along the lines of:
>We wanted Unity to be a truly next-gen experience, but still satisfy all the fans that have not (yet) upgraded to next-gen, so we made a separate game for them.
I keep hearing you faggots say how a multi billion dollar industry that firmly has it's hooks in society is going to crash, but if that's the case what's the use getting pissy in the here and now
EA is worth getting annoyed over for shitting in the corpses of once good games but ubi is just making new games in a series that nobody expected much from in the first place
If the crash is going to happen, nobody here is going to fix it with their bitching, and don't act like it will be a good thing because it will be accessible games which dominate the market ie terrible phone games
Come on, the assassin's creed game have been a copy-paste of each other since the first one. Same animation, same gameplay etc etc.
It's not about the close releases as much as it is about how stale these games are in terms of innovation.
oh come on no one can be this retarded
This. The only reason Unity even looks vaguely playable is because you can jump off seven story buildings and use people's houses as shortcuts.
Sailing was the only thing Black Flag had going for it.
This is a good thing and proves old consoles are still relevant. Especially the PS3 which still has games worthplaying like Kindgom Hearts 2.5 to come. I don't want to start anything here but Nintendo drops support for their consoles very early on and because no 3rd party support the console completly dies very fast. The playstation consoles on the other hand..
If the game mechanics weren't so fucked I'd still play these but it's Mojang tier programming
>oh no the wii u wont get anymore shovel garbage like shit creed or call of duty!
if you want me to post it as politly next time and i will do it for you
except 1st party, which being Bayonetta 2, Smash, Hyrule Warriors and Captain Toad, is enough
unless you need your yearly dose of year sport, yearly parkour, yearly shooter, and dont forget to get the ass sweet DLC to enhance your costumer experience
>Play as a Templar
That is probably the most interesting thing that has happened in AC in a while if they pull it of right. Now there has only been "Assassins are the good guys, Templars are the Dr. Claw organization who want to watch the world burn".
If anything both should have proper reasons for doing what do they do and currently there's only been one bias Assassin point of view (since they butchered the AC3 one big time). The Templars aren't sitting in a bar and one day thinks "oh, tomorrow I should join an evil organisation just because", they have their reasons and the Templars in general should be more shown and their reasons should be more sympathetic. The one side shit we've seen so far is utterly pathetic writing.
So as long they don't fuck this up, make him die or become an assassin again in the end, they might have an interesting game. If they fuck it up and convert him back to Assassinism they should kill themselves for bad writing.
The topic was 3rd party support. WiiU cant even get the most milked franchise of all time, how will it get any decent 3rd party support?
Also Smash is also on 3DS, a system people actually give a shit about.
I stopped playing after Brotherhood because it was becoming a rehashathon but then I got III just to finish the story and somehow despite being the same thing as Brotherhood was a shitfest.
I dont care if Black Flag is actually good Im not buying these rehashathons anymore and you shouldn't be either
3rd party support is a fill in the blanks, there are some jewels that will be missed, or will cash cow on the casuals, dude bros, but quality wise, Nintendo produce better things than almost any other can
There are over 1000 people working on the games at this point. They shit Black Flag out in like 6 months, and it was actually pretty good. Meanwhile III got a little over 3 years and was a disaster in every possible way. More time doesn't help, it seems to make things worse somehow.
I'm willing to put ten bucks on the staple "joins the bad guys, finds out how bad the bad guys are, turns into a hero and defeats the bad guys" plot.
Bonus points if it's a conspiracy.
>tfw used to enjoy the AC franchise, Ass Creed II was awesome even when the script was stupid.
>I actually liked Revelations because they added so many things.
>Then came Ass Creed III
I guess I understand classic CoD fans better now, I was never a fan of that franchise at any point
Rogue sounds more interesting for me tbh even though I love the French Revolution setting but all the CO-OP shit is making sick anyways won't be getting both dropped the series after III
Damn, I never noticed this.
>Pastel, white washed characters in a bubbly and colorful setting
I'm not denying that it's fun to play with your own kid, it's just that, I wouldn't want to play it on my own, just like I wouldn't watch cartoons and anime on my own.
I say give it 6+ months after it comes out.
Probably for marketing.
>Look at this new Ass Creed game. You wanna play it? Got to get a nextgen console for it! But don't worry, you can get a water down game in a few weeks.
Nigga I don't even own a PS4 and I still haven't play blackflag. Fuck responsibilities, my highschool self would have had these games on lockdown with time to spare.
>This officially means Ubisoft has lost hope in the WiiU.
>implying I care for a company that said fuck you to WiiU users delaying Rayman Legends and now have a "ready game" hostage to try to make Nintnedo look as the bad guy.
Vidya is hte only entertainment industry that thinks the end user should bend to the will of the product creator
>quitting in the middle
It just doesn't work that way for some people, no matter how shitty it gets, theres something about being able to say you've successfully kept up with a series since the beginning. That's about the only reason I've kept up with KH until now.
I don't "accept" mature themes the way you describe them, like some boring old man who goes out of his way to not enjoy something because younger people enjoy it. That would be sad. I just don't find these games appealing.
games in 7 years.
For those that think these are all main installments, they're not. There are mobile card games, side scrollers, Facebook games etc.
As for main installments this year raises it to 8, two more games are countable for being on PSP and Vita. Admittedly it's a lot, but 16 actual games in 7 years isn't an accurate idea without context.
Did they ever release Watch Dogs for the Wii U? last I heard, the game was ready but they decided to held it hostage because the wii u wasn't doing well or whatever.
Doesn't matter if Ubisoft is shit or not, less games = less sales, and will hurt the WiiU in the long run.
Nintendo isn't gonna keep supporting a system that isn't getting mainstream titles, no matter how much you think they suck.
So much rustling
I really wish AC4 was just it's own pirate spinoff, everything about Black Flag was enjoyable except the assassin/templar bullshit
im not talking about Ass creed, but the Rayman and the "mistery" hostage game
Nintendo will support as long as they keep making games for it. Cause Nintendo is alwys the main selling point of its consoles
that being said, and given target sales I expect em to move to 9th gen in 2017
we going to need a list just with assassins creed games now
And what about the "joins the bad guys, finds out how bad the bad guys are, turns into the good guys, defeats the bad guys
and the good guys too and keeps the secret treasure" plot
Sure, but then I remember what the third party titles on Wii mostly were...
It's not that much different when there are no third party games at all.
Nintendo could have single-handedly developed all Wii games and things wouldn't have changed.
The reason the WiiU has troubles is not the lacking third-party support, it's the other way round. There is no third-party support, because the WiiU is in troubles.
I gain nothing from a change in symptoms.
>but the Rayman and the "mistery" hostage game
Distributing a game costs money, and, unfortunately for you, people in charge of making money aren't subject to the Sunk Cost Fallacy.
You mean the main series. Ass Creed isn't much worse in that respect either. 4 main series games altogether in what, 6 or 7 years? Pokemon has way more shit when you start counting all the games too like that post does for AC since the topic is milking. That's not to even mention the animation and cards, toys and whatever other shit they have going on.
Soo.... 20bux on Steam in a few months?
Not a clue.
I don't follow the drama surrounding peasantry.
I stopped at III, Black Fag didn't really seem that interesting to me.
And don't mind my trip, just act like it isn't there
Assassin's Creed has been milked since day one, they've had yearly releases right out the fucking gate.
I honestly don't see why everyone loves the shit out the series, it's nothing special.
Well, you should play it then, it's a good pirate AND AC game, 10 times better than ACIII.
Also I can't ignore that fact that are you are being a newfag, so follow the pic related advice.
Yeah, I've been Ubisoft's fuck toy for long enough. I've been a sucker for Assassin's Creed games from the start, but I'm done. They continue to treat the Wii U and Nintendo, and thus the people who own it, like shit, and I can't support a company that won't allow me to. I encourage you all to wait and get these games secondhand for as low of a price as possible if you feel you really must play them. And definitely don't get Rogue now. They'll release a complete version on the newest systems next year. I promise.
Don't worry, it'll be PC's job to keep it alive. Just like Unity.
>4 player co-op
>not made with Steam's shtick of selling games in 4-packs in mind
Is it worth it then? I have only played AC1, Ezio's Trilogy and III, Black Fag didn't interest me that much since the protagonist's fate is already revealed in III.
III was really fucking stupid, Haytham was actually really cool as a protagonist but they had to go and swap him with his dumb offspring.
I might give it a shot sometime then, it's just that III was really fucking disappointing.
And I don't use a tripcode for any particular reason, I just keep it there and see what happens, I've been jumping from trip to trip for years now.
>Abstergo Entertainment is Ubisoft: Montreal
>you play as a Templar
I honestly wouldn't be surprised.
Especially after that whole ordeal with the "not being able to create women characters" thing.
>>Abstergo Entertainment is Ubisoft: Montreal
>>you play as a Templar
>yfw it is all real and Ubisoft are the Templars
EA are the Assassins
>Last gen game being more appealing
gg ubisoft, gg
>AC: ROGUE takes place during the Seven Year War
>Picking the lamest era and war
Daily reminder that you must spin2win!
>implying the last gen game wont be ported over to the current gen within a year after current gen fags finished their game
Story wise maybe, but Unity is actually going to be the first AC game with good gameplay.
same, Unity is actually going to have very different gameplay (with actually engaging fights for once)
It will get "remastered" in HD for PS4/Xbone. Just like the Last of Us.
It's prego with games don't be weird.
That's what I said I can't buy it if it isn't made available.
>make an alternate history claim of the world having a secret war between two ideologically driven factions
>claim anyone who was anyone is tied to either one
The entirety of world history is a lot of wiggle room to write plots, anon.
I think there is just another PoP reboot in the making right now. Let's hope they either go the way of the old games or 2008, Forgotten Sands was the dullest game I ever completed. (except for the platforming, which was actually as good as you'd hope from a PoP game)
> Not Jewbisoft
I doubt it's gonna be an actual sequel, from what it looks like Rogue is gonna be that game they shit out on previous gen consoles to let the poor people still have something to play while giving the people who migrated to next gen the one they put time on. Kinda like what happened with Call of Duty World At War.
Ever heard of this thing called the Magna Carta? Every English citizen being taxed has the right to representation in government, which the English denied the colonists.
That's what you get for your jewery lobsterbacks
I stopped playing CoD by the time MW2 came out but my issue was never the quality of the games but more the influence it had on other companies. Too many of my favorite series went down the shitter cause everyone wants that CoD audience.
For half of that time it was a very different game. It started off as another entry in the Driver series and was primarily being worked on by Ubisoft Reflections. Then that entire thing was scrapped and was handed off to Montreal, then it reworked into the game it is today.
And it was all for nothing
>French and Indian War
I wanna make redskin leather boots, boy.
I guess fighting in other theaters of the time would be pretty neat.
Not really. You can only do so much with a "realistic" modern military setting.
Human history in a VR simulation, open world assassination game has a lot more to go on. Still ends up being a kusoge though.
>What the fuck is the Seven Year War
Nigga did you sleep through your history classes? Its also often called the French and Indian War in our Merrikan education
You best check yourself before you wreck yourself because pic related was wrecking every fucking asshole on the European continent. Too bad it's not even going to be a footnote.
I played through the entirety of 3 and thought it was mediocre to boring most of the time. I finally sucked it up and tried black flag recently and while it started off sorta shitty and almost turned me off, it gets better and does a lot of the open environment exploration shit that 3 tried to do but actually did a better job. I also hated the boating sections in AC3 but ACBF is a lot more fun in that regards as well.
I wouldnt say its done anything particularly amazingly, but if you liked the others in the series before 3 and/or you like pirate shit then you will probly dig black flag.
>Lets see one was against a government across an ocean
>live in America tax free, because Britain doesn't need the taxes and rarely bothered to collect
>blunder Britain into a war over a territorial dispute they were in the wrong about
>supply the French during that war
>act fucking surprised when Britain expects you to pay for the war
>act indignant when Britain wants to make up with the territories they conquered by giving them land
>Britain drops all taxes except for the tax on Tea and Stamps
>dump Tea in the water
>go to war over the threat of Catholics immigration
The Founding Fathers are dumb retards
>assasins creed set in the Three Kingdoms era
i want it, but i want ubi to actually make everything for the game from the ground up and no floaty mocap, hire some real damn animators
so this will never happen
If I were to pick up the franchise again I would go for Rogue rather than Unity in all honesty it just looks more interesting to me even though I love the French revolution but not really a fan of all the CO-OP the game has behind in the future I would give them a try but right now I still remain Sceptical about the series
in Ass Creed 1 the templars were actually really interesting
Al Mualim was telling Altair that the templars are a evil organization to cover up that the real reason the targets are connected is that Al Mualim is committing the same crime.
>mature games for mature gentlemen such as myself
>Rouge will come to PC
That's a damn sexy PC.
They better make that guy look like the movie version of Kroenen
Apparently the co-op is only in specific "Brotherhood" missions. It's a big part of the game and their ads but I think you can easily go through it without co-op as they said all the story missions are by yourself
I feel like I MUST be getting this wrong. I keep looking over it again to find what I'm missing. But, I'm right in thinking that they're releasing two games in the same franchise 2 weeks apart from one another? Right?
oh boy those guys at Ubisoft are fucked up on something man.
Sorry to not jump on your bandwagon but I think the premise of Rogue actually sounds interesting. But I will probably wait for a pc release to play it though.
So why is the more interesting game being release on last gen consoles?
>GTAV comes out
>all of my casual fag friends can't understand why its not out on PC or "next gen" consoles
>I tell them that it will be, just wait.
>They all go out and buy it day one for their 360s or PS3s
>Tell them "Watch, they are going to do two more releases for this game. PC release, and then a GTAV HD for the PS4 and Xbone, they just want you to buy it three times instead of buying the best version right away.
None of them believed me when I said it, and were shocked and elated when it happened.
As much as I hate to admit it, Assassin's Creed is really about the only video game series I still care about. I can't think of a single other series I used to love that hasn't turned into complete garbage.
>Rogue will only launch on PS3 and Xbox360
Well that sucks. I still got a 360 in my closet but I would have prefered to play it on PC. I'm impatient as fuck so instead of waiting a year for a port I'll probably spend money on a shitty console game.
It was in dev already, probably, alongside AC4. Rewriting everything to be for the next gen takes time and money, and next gen didn't exactly sell very well. It's not like PS3 and Xbox 360 owners disappeared the moment new consoles are released.
This is clearly one of those cases where management only cares about next gen consoles and just did the current gen versions so they could rake in some extra dosh and get some good PR from people that didn't jump to next gen yet. The important thing is not if the game is how they want, if there is a game at all they will be satisified, so the team is able to be more adventurous with the mechanics and story.
Playing as a templar is gonna be at least an interesting story, 4 player buttfuckery be damned.
>Everyone universally agrees the best aspects of the last Asscreed game were the antagonistic protagonist and the sailing gameplay
>They fucking make a game based around those two aspects but put it on last gen with no PC port at launch
Its so people who have both 7th and 8th gen consoles buy twice. Cant wait for 8th gen so they get it for the 7th, Then when 8th gen comes out looking better they buy it again. In theory.
