Is that the ending? :shock:

It’s literally the first thing that happens in the first game lol.
It’s kind of important, I wonder why that’s like the only one they’ve never rereleased. Onboarding into this series is kinda rough.

Kinda silly. Nothing feels lower stakes than playing a simulation inside a video game. On the other hand it's pretty fun and I'm only interested in gameplay.

The other games usually put more pressure on you on the “present day” story right away. Black Flag kinda drip-feeds you the stakes as you go along.

Guess it's getting announced at the Ubisoft event today.


Literally just disappeared after the first time I checked it. I went back to see if there was any mention of a Switch Pro or something and now it’s gone….

It's still there for me.

Super excited for a new Mario + Rabbits game, although I am reluctant to pay anything close to full price for it, so will probably wait a bit to play. But the first game was really great.

There's a drug that somehow allows you to experience the lives of your ancestors through your DNA or some junk like that. Half of my knowledge of this franchise comes from the equally bad movie with Michael Fassbender.

I mean, the gameplay is pretty good. Just don't think too much about how impossible the story is.


I was semi-willing to accept the absurdity of your memories being stored in your dna and passed down to your kids; except that then they started included your memories from after the child was born. How in time-travel bs is that supposed to work?

Even in the past you would have to be doing exactly what your ancestors did or it wouldn't be a memory...

The memory tech literally drops you into a Ubisoft open-world game where it allows you to move freely within a certain margin of error within the memory, to the point where around AC3 and Black Flag they literally start selling videogames out of the stuff within the game’s world. It gets pretty wonderfully silly.

So Assassin's Creed Black Flag is the first assassin's creed game I've ever played. Judge all you want, won't change reality for me. And speaking of reality:

Imagine my extreme confusion when traveling to a restricted area and getting "desynchronized" with flashy computer effects in pirate times, and then looking in the menus and seeing "end simulation." Wait, what?

Not only is that dumb, it's not explained anywhere. What's going on here?


The whole overarching story of AC is that they use the Animus to relive their ancestor’s memories to find special artifacts of great power.

1, the ezio trilogy and 3 makes up what I think was the originally planned story. After that, starting with Black Flag, the sort of just did whatever they wanted with the story since most people didn’t seem to care about the modern stuff.

If you add the family sub to your cart by itself then delete it from your cart, the memory card shows up in your cart for under $2. I can't get the checkout to work with it though. If anyone feels like trying please post your success strategy.

I think I am the only person on the internet or in the world who actually misses the modern day storyline lol. I have played every AC game and had hoped that the modern day story line could help tie together all of these games and reward me for playing them all.

As the series has progressed (I'm currently playing Syndicate) the modern sections have increasingly becomes this weird vestigial limb. Not to yuck your yum, but I'm one of the people who wouldn't mind seeing it go. Surely they can put those resources elsewhere, right?

When they killed off the guy it was all tied to and his memory DNA is a part of all of the evil tech company's tools that they use to make AC games with Ubisoft, it is no longer an interesting part of the storyline unless they somehow kept going with the video game developer thing and got really weird and meta with that. Nothing tops the ending revelations of AC2 and they didn't really capitalize on that with what they did in AC3, so I barely notice the out of simulation parts of the games now.

The modern day storyline could have used better gameplay segments … it always felt sort of tacked on. Maybe if they eventually arrived at some kind of “futuristic assassins creed - ala Cyberpunk” then all those sections in the older games would have paid off … but yeah, switching characters and making it less relevant in later games kind of killed any of that momentum.

I was planning to try this in store since I need to return an unopened 128 gb card that I bought at Target and re-buy to get the deal.  I figure they won't try to weasel out of the deal while I'm at the store.  Someone in the Target thread suggested adding the memory card first and then adding the subscription card second.

Both 12 month family membership and 128GB memory card were showing at full price in my cart until the final step of checkout.

Just checked and was about to post the same.   Scarlet must have sold out only Mario Maker was there:

[EDIT]

 

and clicking the link... it's now gone too.  That was fast.  My 2ds showed up today... so I'm probably good with just it... but I'm still checking and thinking about a backup to my backup because I have a pretty solid DS/3DS library.

How are y’all keeping up with the restocks on the Nintendo store? I’d love to grab a 2DS for my little man.

Also - anyone played Doki Doki on here that would recommend it? It doesn’t look like a horror game at all.

Damn. All of that media attention is just going to generate more interest and exposure to the game.

Yeah, I agree that they have nerfed the modern day content to the point where it seems unnecessary but I really liked the original games' modern day story with Desmond.

Agreed. The original game's modern day story with Desmond and illuminati stuff was more interesting. I wish the newer games put in the same type of effort to make the modern storyline interesting.
