Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag - Ask GameSpot
Chris stands in for Shaun and barrages Kevin with your questions about Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag on this weeks Ask GameSpot.
As Much as I enjoyed AC1 and AC2 (saga), AC3 was just a big disappointment, AC4 looks bland. They should've gone with a new character unrelated to AC3 characters. That instantly puts me off.
I stealth regardless in AC games. Not doing so would defeat the purpose unless you have no other choice.
There's no point to stealth when you can just walk up to an army of bad guys and destroy them by mashing a couple buttons. The difficulty on these games are locked on potato mode.

why the heck ppl want more and more ship play time on next ac, yeah dont get me wrong i like the ship experience, but the main thing why i like ac and im a fan of it is because of the all hidden "gadgets", stealth killing, "parkour" experience, etc, etc, etc. please dont try to change the essence of a game just cuz u guys get a good feedback with the ships experiment. just my opinion, long live the Assassin's
In AC4, are gonna have more reasons to get out of the animus? Cause in AC1, you only had to exit to sleep, in AC2 you couldn't and you only exited when the story told you to, in ACB you could exit when you wanted to, but you had NOTHING to do outside, in ACR you only got out at the end of the game in a cutscene and the only times where you HAD to get out of the animus in AC3 was to get those things to unlock more rooms in the cave. So I ask you, in AC4 will we have any reason to get out to do something that's not story related?
I am sure the game will be great. Assassin's Creed III was not that bad, but it really desapointed a lot of fans. The world and graphics are similar to the very good Far Cry 3.
AC3 missed out on online naval battles, now AC4 avoids them as well where it's the most opportune time to add them in! Does anyone remember splitscreen pirate battles in Sly 3: Honor among Thieves on PS2? They worked out pretty well! AC4 should expand on that concept!
Its all fine and dandy with this... after all, you cant go wrong with a pirate game... :P
But what about some love for Shadowrun Returns? When is your review of that coming up, Kevin?
I am looking forward to this game but I think they may have noticed how everyone is asking for naval multiplayer that they are saving it for DLC at a later date after conveniently not being able to get it working how they want it.
@erMonezza Criticizing a game that you haven't played or even watched a walkthrough, is a sign for you to get a new hobby.
@C0nv3rsE_VIP completley agree. Ship battle is cool but nowhere near so much I'd want a full game of it
@C0nv3rsE_VIP But you're still gonna be able to do all that. Let's just hope that Ubi learned their lesson from AC3
@C0nv3rsE_VIP 100% agree with you. The ship combat might be fun. But it's still a gimmick to the franchise.
@quickshooterMk2 So the multiplayer defines the game does it?
Nope, if your playing any AC game for the multiplayer than your doing it wrong.
@Subaru1980 Get your thoughts together.
@justcool2 LOL! shut the f*ck up, sherlock.
@eddieham13 honestly that'd be one dlc i'd be cool with.
@Dirk_McHardpeck I played sooooo much Sid Meier's Pirates GOLD! for the Sega Genesis back in the day. My enjoyment of that game is the main reason I'm interested in ACIV.
@darkPSPfan I didn't even know it had MP
@Dirk_McHardpeck I did, but for some reason, I didn't get into it. I think my clouds of nostalgia may have obstructed my ability to appreciate it on its own merits.
