Since when did this have multiplayer in it? How exciting.

Reports have said multiplayer is more like a card-based game of Risk, still waiting for reviews to find out the details.

Ubisoft is playing the multiplayer "card" a little too close to their chest for the Vita version. Too bad it won't be a full MP experience.

Played for a little bit before the kid commandeered my Vita tonight. Gorgeous graphics, definitely plays like an AC game. The different outfits add an interesting dimension to the game. I like it a lot so far.

Any word on length? I'm considering grabbing this from Target (along with Rangarok (sp?) and Most Wanted Vita) but don't want to be disappointed by a 5 hour single player campaign and no real MP experience.

Supposedly some have found Ragnarok at Target but they seem to have a pretty limited release so I wouldn't count on all Target's carrying it.

You can try using this link to search for it, but I'm not totally sold on the new stock locator method for Target and can't say whether or not this would be accurate.

Side note: I've only been to two Targets this week but neither one had AC Liberation either.

For AC Liberation you have to check on the endcap because its not located in the normal PS Vita spot.

Stopped by and picked up AC:L, NFS:MW, and LBP:V with the possibility of trading in LBP for RO when they (hopefully) get some in.

Proof? It clearly says on the site not sold in-stores and the locator shows nothing within 60 miles of two different zipcodes... :(

Bought this yesterday along with NFS:MW via a B2G1 free coupon I had as part of Best Buy's Reward Zone Gamer program. Was really hoping they'd have RO but it's not even listed on their website.

Picked it get at Target today. We should get some folks together who want to try out this cool asynchronous multiplayer mode.

Add me on PSN if you want to play!

I feel like an idiot. I can't get the multiplayer to do anything. Any hints? I select a home node and then I'm stuck, can't do anything, can't exit.

I only have anecdotal evidence from Reddit, hence my use of "supposedly."

Is this game canon? Should I not play it until I play the main games (I still need to play from AC2 on) or is it its own separate story?

I'm going to guess that it's not canon - so far story wise it doesn't have much of anything to do with anything except for the word 'Templar' sprinkled in here and there. You miss a teensy bit from not seeing the evolution of Abstergo's 'product' in AC:B and R to now (only a multiplayer thing I think) but that's really plot irrelevant, just fun.

On a side note jumping through trees is pretty neat in this. Makes me excited to dig in to the console version.

I still can't tell what the hell is going on now that it's working. I even read the manual. I suspect it just sucks and that's all there is.

Screw 'direct the rear camera toward a bright light'. Seriously.

I've read of people having problems with this, but I've had none whatsoever - do I just have brighter lights in my house or something?

I found that the only way it would work for me was to open up safari on the ipad to a blank page and get rid of the keyboard so it's just a big white screen. Still takes some experimenting though. Sucks that there's a full synch requirement on one mission that requires you to complete everything in 5 minutes and it has one of these light things.

Agreed. On a similar subject, I wish they wouldn't have crammed in all these forced touch based features, it's really dampening my experience with the game. It wouldn't be an issue if they worked the way they're supposed to or if they opt to let us use button controls instead but as it stands something as 'simple' as pick-pocketing is a hassle. Also don't get me started on the

.

Don't get me wrong though I really enjoy this game, even some of the touch features. I just wish they would stop cramming all these unnecessary gimmicks down our throats with every Vita game. Just my $.02

Welp, seems I just hit one of the save file ruining bugs at 92% synch. Piss. Watch yourselves after you finish sequence 8.

I'm on sequence 3 and am thinking of trading it in. I'm not sure what the problem is, but it just doesn't feel like an Assassin's Creed game. The controls feel jank and there's really no back story to tie this into the rest of the lore. I wish they would have just used the standard formula...

Haven't started ACL yet but that's exactly how I felt about Uncharted. "Oh boy, more charcoal rubbings! Lets clean off this dusty sword!" Sad to hear it may be a trend on the Vita. Not a dealbreaker by any means but its annoying and unnecessary.
