Where did everyone preorder it at?

I preordered at Gamestop for the Mayan ruins pack.

PhazonBlazer

I read about that Mayan ruins thing, that sounds cool as sh!t. Do you actually go to Central America in the main game?

I don't think so, unless you're able to sail there in the naval sections.

Strange that they would make DLC that requires a lot of different assets from what will be in the game.

The longest 10 days I'm going to have since time. This game is top 5 for me for being most hyped about. San Andreas, GTA4, MGS4, AC3, RDR, Skyrim. all in that order.

damn...i sure am a sucker for open world games...

Ok I've realized something that might be pretty spoilerish for Desmond's and Connor's campaign

[spoiler]

If you look at the picture below you can tell that this seems to be a wrestling match in a Spanish speaking part of the world. Maybe this means that Connor will be travelling to Central America within the campaign.

Oh yeah, that actually sounds like a good idea now that I think about it. You don't need to play Brotherhood and Revelations- they aren't required reading. You could just Wiki them. Make sure to finish II though, that will probably be very important in context to the plot points in AC3. Although considering 3 will probably do massive numbers- it wouldn't surprise me if it did more than 3 million in a week- would it still get a price drop?

Eh, I don't know about that... it will be a week old around both of those sales (considering the staggered release of the PC edition). Black Friday might see it bundled with some other game, or like $20 off though.

Limited edition for PS3, and Leberation. Let the revolution begin. Haven't gotten my hands on it yet, and I already want to know where they will go next. If they want to do more Connor, than I would like to see 1812.

No, they seem to have removed the dependance on counters. Although countering can activate chain combos that can be carried between enemies as well. It's in the Making of Assassin's Creed III video Part II.

it's a new IP that respects player choice and has a good story. It has GOTY pretty much on lock here, barring Halo 4 or Assassin's Creed III being the word of God pressed onto a disc.

You could've been invited to be part of my Assassin's possie when midnight launch comes. I was planning a bonfire, AC III costumes, dance, beer, 'muricans vs british wrestling, basically the best sausage-fest on this planet. But forget it, you're clearly not worthy of such an honor:(.

I have high hopes for this game but everytime they showed footage something let me down a bit. The visuals while impressive aren't as good as they should be, some other games in the medium are far more visually detailed with more high res textures and better shadows. But I will wait for a PC version comparison to judge more, But it's AC so I doubt it will be much different than the consoles apart from resolution and framerate.

Also the combat still seems incredibly drole. Enemies stand around waiting to be killed. It all looks very flashy and cool but there is no substance to it. The enemy AI is still as dumb as ever it seems.

Animals were a great addition and then they had to put in QTE battles with them. I mean wtf authorised that decision? it is so stupid that you would wrestle a fvcking deer after attacking it. A deer would run from you not turn and lock arms with you. A normal dodge and fight mechanic would have been fine but not "Press B to win". Anyway I will try avoid them as much as I can.

What I do like though is Connor. He is a bigger brute than the previous assassins and I love how all his moves are very deliberate and hefty looking. He has way more strength than Ezio or Altair and I like that sort of attitude in the wilderness. The wilderness itself is also the big seller of this game for me. I am biased towards forests and snow and this game has both in spades.

I just hope there is a lot of choice in how we got about missions, like I would love to do all missions from treetops and be very cunning and not be forced into too many encounters. Time will tell, but I expect a 9.0 here so far

Fuking QTE's in my assassins creed, hope they patch this or something.

Seriously, this is probably my biggest complaint at the moment. It's just unnecessary and breaks the immersion. Hope they get rid of them before the release.

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