Ha! I knew this was coming since they didn't have a new game coming out this year. I've already played through all of those on 360, so no need to dump that much time playing through them all again. It would be a very cool experience for a first timer though.

ACII is the best thing this franchise made. Brotherhood was a solid expansion to ACII. Brotherhood was fine.. but the mechanics of the world were starting to get a bit stale. It was fine.. but didn't really add much to the table. Good game at the end of it all.

Seeing that trailer... I don't see much new in the visuals. It has been a while though.

I love these games...but after playing the Bioshock collection...and seeing the games in 60fps..I am a little disappointed this collection is in 30fps..


I still want to get it..but I will wait until it is 19.99

I'll likely get this since I never finished Brotherhood and never started Revelations.

I never really tried this series for one reason or another - i'd be interested in this collection but it's too expensive for me. Although AC2 was a freebie that's backwards compatible, so if anything i'd probably just play that.

The remaster is... weird.

http://www.polygon.com/2016/11/17/13...mparison-weird


Right off the bat you’ll notice that something ... happened. There are some definite improvements in the remastered version. The draw distance is clearer, it has better anti-aliasing and colors are more vibrant. The stonework on the buildings is also more defined.

But whatever attention was paid to rendering the beautiful buildings of Florence seems to have gone missing on the characters’ faces. Ezio’s tan skin has been lightened to blotchy pink, in what looks like an effort to add texture. All the main characters suffer a little from patchy skin and popping eyes. But the biggest victim is this guy right here:

I was gonna hold out for Best Buy to have it for that price so GCU would stack, but I saw over on CAG that you save 30% if you get one of those $1 preorder cards with it so I jumped on it.
