    The assassin logo looks like it's replacing the X in "X marks the spot".

    Also, this comes to mind:

    IGN has an article about the game.

    The Highlights, since it is a lengthy article

    - 50 Locations around the Carribean
    - 3 Main Cities: Havana(which is more European in design) Kingston(which is more English in Design) and Nassau(" The Republic of Pirates")
    - 60% of the main missions are on land
    - Hunting seems focused on Oceanic wildlife, so whaling and spear-fishing.
    -Naval Warfare is much more intricate
    -Edward is "Charismatic and Reckless".
    - In the modern day story line you play as a Templar.
    -Assassinating is simiar to AC1's system, there is much more freedom in how you do it.

    Playable Templar is intriguing... Wonder how that bloodline developed.

    Also, being able to hunt sea creatures is going to piss some groups off big time... Do want.

    I'm pretty sure we're going to hear at least PETA, yes. And probably from those idiots who try to stop Japanese whalers by ramming their boats.

    OK, so…
    … No, you don't. From the article:

    This isn't a playable Templar ala Haytham Kenway, this is the AC3 multiplayer story. You're basically some "slacker type" (thanks, Vidic) playing the Animus game console.

    It also shows that the pivot hackers in AC3's postgame were Templars, or had their Animus cloud upload hijacked by the Templars. So now we get to look at Desmond's genetic memories without having Desmond around. Semi-disappointing, in that I sort of wanted a new protagonist (with more screen time) who also had special ancestry, but I guess only Desmond is special. Oh well, maybe we'll get more Shaun…

    I hope we get to smash a bottle over someone's head.

    Every action performed in AC trailers is something that can be done in the actual game, so, yes, bottle-smashing awaits.

    Part 2 of G-Dub Goes Wild is out. I forgot to redownload AC3 before today, so I'll likely play it tomorrow.

    That particular scene doesn't seem to have been cut so much as rewritten and replaced by a similar scene. And they seem to be adding some lines here or there into the DLC.

    You beat me to it, I was just about to post that.

    I'm really eager to see actual in-game AC4 stuff. Not just directed trailers, but mission demonstrations.

    They already have. Check out this Annoyed Gamer segment on GT.com

    http://www.gametrailers.com/videos/7ywwp7/annoyed-gamer-an-unnatural-disaster

    I like Marcus, he has a pretty cool show. Talks frankly about the issues in the gaming industry. UBI Soft's response to PETA shown in the video is pretty funny lol.

    So apparently your crew can die in battle and storms and you have to replace them by recruiting new members.

    How?

    Bar fights.

    Surprised no one posted this yet. Looks pretty good. Although I haven't played one game, I've tracked them and like the new direction they are taking. World looks large, but still redundant IM-ignorant-O. That is why I never got into AC....redundancy.

    I wouldn't call AC redundant.

    Grab something from the Steam sale and give it a whirl. 2 is probably the best way to go, it's widely considered the best game in the series. I think Brotherhood is.

    I'm currently playing 1 for the first time. Thought I'd start there and work my way up.

    The one thing I'd love to be able to do right now, is loot the bodies for stuff and get upgrades. Its my favorite thing about games like WoW, Oblivion & even Gran Turismo. I'm very excited about the combination of those things with AC's gameplay, to the point I'm glad I started at the beginning.

    New trailer featuring manly things like banging hookers, singing a shanty sea going song and spear fishing.

    I'm still not over the "pirate trained by assassins" concept. I mean, that's just not fair. What can stop that? A viking trained by sorcerers?

    Can't wait to play the PC version.

    New AC comic: Assassin's Creed Brahman. Depicts the 1800s colonial Indian assassin Abraaz Mir.

    This is notable because colonial India is one of the settings the AC team said they'd like to use in a game. That is now off the table, so we can eliminate a possibility for AC5.

    Just finally go ACIII. Was 19.99 at Best Buy and I had a 10 dollar reward zone gift card expiring. Liking it a lot so far. Black Flag looks really good. Love a good pirate game. The ship to ship combat looks fun. I might even buy this one at $29.99 instead of waiting till $9.99 Desides... :lol:

    Most games are discounted pretty quickly these days, yeah. But 10 bucks isn't worth the wait, IMO.
