Re: Assassin's Creed: Syndicate (XB1 PS4 PC) 10/23/15

Even if this one comes out with a decent metacritic score, I think this is going to be the final yearly release. The hype has been dead silent and fatigue has set in. I could see them alternating between AC and Watch Dogs going forward.

If you have mild interest in the game, don't forget that digital codes will probably be flooding Ebay here pretty soon.

Re: Assassin's Creed: Syndicate (XB1 PS4 PC) 10/23/15

I absolutely loved the Ezio trilogy and Black Flag, but hated 3 and Unity. I can't think of another series where my enjoyment between installments has been as polar opposite. After reading a half dozen reviews this morning, I placed a preorder just to hold the $10 BBuy bonus, but I'm not sure if I'll pick it up tomorrow or cancel.

I'll be getting a Gamefly copy soon (hopefully) and would then buy a cheap Ebay code after Black Friday if I really dug the game.

I'd wait until Black Friday for this but I just can't get into the new Metal Gear. So I'll be grabbing this one tomorrow.

Re: Assassin's Creed: Syndicate (XB1 PS4 PC) 10/23/15

I'm skipping it til it's cheaper. No time right now. I did enjoy Unity so I'm not worried but yeah, this will be $29 in a month.

Re: Assassin's Creed: Syndicate (XB1 PS4 PC) 10/23/15

Reviews are all over the place on this one - scores range from 5/10 to 9/10, at least it doesn't appear to be the technical disaster the last release was. And it appears to be competently made, it just depends if more Assassin's Creed is what you want, the series simply hasn't evolved as much as it should be at this point.

Of course, many of these same folks are the ones that will likely praise the umpteenth sequel in other franchises.

Re: Assassin's Creed: Syndicate (XB1 PS4 PC) 10/23/15

I like the London setting so I'll pick this up sometime, but I already have five AC games sitting here unplayed (two from XB1 bundle, three from the trilogy following the original game).

Gamepot has their review up...9.0....

...then again this from Gamepur......

Assassin's Creed Syndicate Glitch Has Protagonists Disappearing, Broken Camera And Floating Weapons

Although two day one patches have been provided by Ubisoft, Assassin's Creed Syndicate remains one hell of a glitchy game. This time around, respecting series' tradition, we have a video showing Syndicate dealing with invisible characters, floating guns and broken camera.

...but then again Gameinformer has their review up....9.0

Assassins Creed: Bushido, set in mid evil Japan. Of course there would be ninjas, the original assassins.

Re: Assassin's Creed: Syndicate (XB1 PS4 PC) 10/23/15

I only got into AC with Black Flag and i thought that game was awesome. I was tempted by the Paris follow up, but all the bugs in reviews kept me well away. Syndicate looks interesting and it looks les glitchy, however i am going to hold off and wait for the version that inevitably gets released without glitches and with any DLC. I am truly tired of games that get released and still need 4 months work to get to completion.

It truly makes no sense as to why they haven't went that route yet. I'm a fan of the series but European settings are getting old. Feudal Japan or the Mayan empire are high on my wish list.

I would be interested in a Japanese version. They did do the mini China version.

Don't know if it has been mentioned, but there are 2 dlc contents that are showing up as free.

Search for Runaway Train and The Dreadful Crimes.

Thanks, might as well grab. Dreadful Crimes isn't appearing on Xbox, though.

On PS4 each of those freebies are 1.1MB. Are these on disc pre-order bonuses or something?

Wow, Gamespot actually gave a good review to something other than GTA or Halo?

Re: Assassin's Creed: Syndicate (XB1 PS4 PC) 10/23/15

So I guess the big twist that Ubisoft didn't advertise is

Spoiler:
You play half the game as a female assassin?
