It'll score AAA.

Still not interested. But it'll score AAA.

Does anyone have any impressions from somebody who has actually played the Naval Battles? Those are my biggest concern alongside the QTE Hunting.TheDidact

From what I've read, people seem to be enjoying them. Hopefully they won't be like den defense.

#253 Posted by DoctorWho88 (214 posts) -

Probably an AAA - the graphics, controls, editions, content and thought that's gone into the game gives off that general impression for me. I'm slightly questioning at the prices - but 'ey, that's not the important one. I'm probably more excited at ACIII Liberation's launch - the PS Vita definitely needs this support from a key developer to increase the popularity of what is a deservedly good handheld :)

I've read a bit about the naval battles. Apparently they are pretty good. I think there will be some sort of split regarding them, but most people will like them. I hate QTEs. That's the only thing I don't look forward to with this game. That's probably going to be the constant thing you hear people complaining about if it's too in your face.

And about stealth in the game

4:50 mark

From what I get out of what he said, AC3 is really navigation and combat focused. They didn't want to force people to play stealthily, but they added a lot features so you can play stealthily if you want.

I don't know if that's good or bad. Hopefully you can play most of the game with stealth.

Well, as long as it doesn't turn into another Den Defense I'm ok with it. QTE Hunting on the other hand.....

Pretty sure there's more Cows or Hermits than anything else. But everyone does like Nintendo games.

There are more hermits I think, but the sheep are the loudest and most vocal there so it seems like there are more of them :P

I haven't really heard anything about the Wii U collector's edtion, but according to this site, it doesn't look like we'll be seeing one.

I haven't heard anything about a separate campaign, I believe it's like horde mode.

Although a separate campaign would be awesome.

I'd rather have them focused on the singleplayer campaign though.

It's a combination of Horde and AC multiplayer. You are given specific targets to hunt down per wave and they are guarded. The targets get harder to eliminate the further you progress. There are 25 waves in total.

That actually sounds like fun. I'm a sucker for horde modes and spent more time playing that in Gears 3 than campaign or competitive. Is it gonna be 4 player co-op?

http://oxcgn.com/2012/10/22/what-is-this-assassins-creed-iii-arg-trying-to-tell-us/

Ubisoft just released an Alternate Reality Game on their webpage for Assassin's Creed III:

It all began when the image to the right, entitled Hacked History, appeared as a result of completing a web game promoting AC3.

Desmond is in the rafters of a sporting venue, watching what appears to be either a boxing or wrestling match. A mans face is on the screen, most likely one of the men duking it out.

Seems normal enough right?

The only anomaly and a well hidden one, at that is located in the lower left corner of the fuzzy blue screen: a QR code.

[here's the image he's talking about:http://xboxoz360.files.wordpress.com/2012/10/assassins-creed-3-arg-oxcgn-1.jpg]

A very kind user then took the image, made it blue in order to point out subtle numbers throughout the image, and made the QR code larger.

[this image can be found here:http://xboxoz360.files.wordpress.com/2012/10/assassins-creed-3-arg-oxcgn-2.jpg]

With the code now large enough to be scanned, I pulled out my iPhone and loaded up my QR scanner app. (Alternatively, you can get to the site here.)

I was led to a page entitled, once more, Hacked History, asking for me to input a password. My first thought based on the image was Desmond, which turned out to be correct.

Then, we have the current mystery: the following page. After inputting the password, youre given a copy of the Declaration of Independence with the instructions Decipher the Declaration.

As you read this, avid fans are trying to decipher the message of the Declaration, and I can, in fact, confirm that the answer is NOT Nicholas Cage.

oxcgn

Interesting stuff.

King Washington DLC:

This DLC takes place in a fictional time period in which George Washington becomes the king of England.

PhazonBlazer

Question: Is the story of the King George DLC that Washington becomes king of England? I had thought it was an "alternate past" where Washington assumed dictatorial control as the first President, and became "King of America".

That's disappointing, I thought it would launch with all the pre-order bonuses or something.

@xvision: Does this game have co-op? D: I wouldn't mind joining in, but I don't have a mic and that's a big problem for most users... which is why I don't do online gaming too often. :P

But this just looks incredible.

Where is everybody pre-ordering at? I'm thinking about pre-ordering at Gamestop tomorrow when I pick up Forza but I'm not sure what bonuses the other stores have. Does Gamestop still give out the steelbooks?

Ya I agree. AC1 is pretty weak. I think it got a lot of good reviews because it was something we kinda had never seen before. You get that initial "WOW" punch and it wears off after a bit of time.

no unfortunately they stopped giving out steel books as they were a limited supply thing. Umm I know gamestop has a sawtooth blade sword and an extra myan temple in the game or something.

I don't know, I remember them advertising the steelbooks when the preorder campaign first began but I'm not sure if they still do.

Ya I did. I didn't have space for the stuff at the time because I didn't wanna clutter my room even more. Eventually I cleaned it out and started buying CE's that normally come with figures. I mean I have AC3 reserved Alien colonial marines reserved just reserved bioshock infinite.
