Why am I running into so many kids with a mic? Is this normal for PS3 games? IT seems like every game there is always 1-3 kids in it and always actively talking.

Why do they always have bluetooth mics !!

Probably because it's a beta? Kids have been popping up on the PSN more lately, toss them a free game to play and they'll flock to it. Make them pay for it and you won't see nearly as much.

Sounds promising. Hopefully parents wont be purchasing them Brotherhood... at least until Christmas so I can get some peaceful game sessions in before that.

God dammit I knew it. 51 trophies and one of them is to max your online level to 50. There had better be a mode worth playing because DM is trash.

Just a heads up, but the beta ends today. Pretty odd timing seeing as the game isn't due for another month. Also, I do have some good news for us trophy whores. Remember all those annoying collectibles like flags, feathers, etc? Eagle vision will now reveal these and MARK them on the map, which actually gives us a reason to use it now amirite?! Now if only they could unlock useful things in the game. . .

Too bad I never got in the beta...well, I guess not too bad because 97% of people said the beta sucked.

Check out @RealKrakrabbit - Twitter Page Full of News, Tidbits, etc., etc.

 

Also looking to make trades/sells to anyone who is interested. Check out my tradelist! :grouphug:

If you play with all friends, it has some potential I suppose. I only played for about an hour that first night of live and saw all I needed to lol. Of course, they could be changing a lot over the next month since this is just beta but I'm not holding my breath. SP is going to rock anyways, so no skin off my nose if it still sucks.

Also, new trailer!

When does it end today? We should try to get a CAG game going if possible.

Ok Jodou we get that you played for an hour, didn't do well and played with some shitty people and now you are running the hate campaign on the MP. Don't scare everyone off of it! It's awesome.

I do agree that the MP suffered at beta launch - because nobody knew how to play. But once people started actually trying and realizing running around = no points. It was a blast.

I think me and you are the only ones that play it now. Jodou scared them all away! :D

Wow, didn't even know the beta ended today. Kinda early in my opinion, but the MP was actually pretty good. The only thing that sucked was waiting for a game. I think one of my longest waits was 45 minutes, at least I had stumble upon keeping me company waiting for a damn match to start.

I think Rome was my least favorite map. Since everybody wants to climb and scale rooftops, it really kills the idea of being stealthy and stalking your prey. I agree that they need to tweak stunning your pursuer. I don't know how many times I sprung a trap to have them chase me, then trying to stun them only to get killed in the process.

I had a lot of fun with the beta and might look for it when amazon drops it by 20 bucks.

I ended up not playing tonight but I'll still be getting the game so I'll be up for some matches. It'll be nice to finally be able to do some private games and try the other modes.

Would they release the retailer exclusive MP skins later on? Hard to decide between the 3 exclusive skins from the 3 different retailers but I lean towards the Amazon one and the $15 credit is a plus.

Honestly, you'd be better off NOT getting a MP exclusive skin. Just think on day one how many jesters and officers are going to be running around. If you stick to something plain in the menu, then you should get picked off less often. Also, I know that once a character has been selected, it becomes grayed out. That would be a pretty raw deal to only allow one jester and one officer per game lol. Pretty much makes that pre-order bonus worthless IMO.

Just get the Amazon armor, because it's the best of the three and not MP dependent.

I was actually thinking that the MP skins for this game are actually the best. Because if any other game ever does exclusive skins, you'll see everyone with the same skin all the time. But in this game only one person gets it, so you can still feel unique and have an different skin. And I'm also fast when I select my skin so I never get the left overs (unless I join mid game).

I really dont think there will be any more preorder skins over regular ones. The majority of people that get this game will not have preordered it so therefore will not have any

Damn it, there goes my chance to plat that sucker :cry:.. I just platted AC2 and had a blast doing it.
Do you know if Eagle Vision will reveal and mark the feathers that you don't even see? You could easily see a feather in EV at quite large distances in AC2 it just wasn't marked on a map.

Quite honestly I don't know. I'd imagine they have to be in view, but that shouldn't be hard since you'll be up on view points a lot. I'd just turn on the vision and sweep the area until the map is lit up with flags.

Yeah, but there were more than few kind of out of sight, you really had to go out of your way to find them. Oh well, there will always be guides for this stuff.

Oh, I know. I've done the collection stuff to 100% for both games. It wouldn't be so bad if they actually put them in cool spots, but they're dicks about it and hide them under crates in a boat. At least this will help when trying to track them down using a guide.

PlayStation Blog Europe posted this AC:B update which contains probably the laziest list of improvements I've seen:

Improvements / Fixes:
Improved Matchmaking
Improved Voice Chat
Improved Lock Mechanism
Improved Stun
Improved Climbing Control
Improved Sound
Improved Kill Cams
Improved Scoring Display
Improved End Game Screen
Improved Rematch

Added Features:
New Group Lobby System
Teammate Indicators in Alliance Mode
Pursuer Proximity Sound
Gun and Firecrackers Crowd Reaction
Player Levels in Player List
Team Score in Menus

But hey, at least it means they've been making improvements. "Pursuer Proximity Sound" and "Improved Stun" sound like they have potential. I wish they had just provided any kind of info on what these actually mean.

Good news, friends: I have it on high authority that PS3 is getting FREE exclusive day one DLC involving Copernicus (you know, the guy who theorized that not everything revolved around us/earth) and a special side mission to silence the haters of his ideas. No word of when or if 360 gets this, so be sure to stick out your tongue at them.
