Re: Assassins Creed Black Flag FREE
Maybe i should try the series finally, because i got all the first 6 ACs (AC1-4 and Brotherhood&Revelations) for free, now  :D

But actually.. this one lacks some Space Ships :( Even Origins does not feature some Aliens that uses the Pyramids for landing platforms  :lol:

Is one of my releases broken or not working? Please send a PM here or on Twitter, a public tweet @NovachenFS2 or write a reply in my own release threads here on HLP, because these are the only threads i am still participating in.

Re: Assassins Creed Black Flag FREE
Is it worth signing up for Uplay bull**** for this?

 
Re: Assassins Creed Black Flag FREE
Uplay is been getting less and less bull**** over time so mabye??? For me the biggest issue with Uplay was not so much it's existence but that you had to use it even if you bought the game on steam. As a standalone thing it's not too bad these days (and I really should start making a thread about steam being bad).

Also it's widely considered to be the best assassin's creed game, you get to be a pirate with your own ship!

"Widely" may be debateable - Ezio's trilogy (AC2 + Brotherhood + Revelations) still holds that distinction to many.

But it is one of the games that best shows the good and bad of the series.

Also, if you don't sing along to the sea chanties while out on the ocean you are playing it wrong :D

The thing is...

Ezio is not a pirate.

Checkmate.

Yes, for free.

I played Black Flag just a few weeks ago. It's very good. The story is a lil' meandering but the characters are wonderful; you'll be sick to death of the staple Assassin's Creed gameplay loops (collect all the X, climb all the Y, oh my god these parkour controls are infuriating, tailing missions FUUCK) by the end, but you also get a wonderful, atmospheric pirate simulator complete with upgradable ship and legendary ship bosses.

It's been years since I played Black Flag... maybe I should finally finish it.

schrödinbug (noun) - a bug that manifests itself in running software after a programmer notices that the code should never have worked in the first place.

<Aesaar> literary criticism is vladimir putin

<MageKing17> "There's probably a reason the code is the way it is" is a very dangerous line of thought. :P
<MageKing17> Because the "reason" often turns out to be "nobody noticed it was wrong".
(the very next day)
<MageKing17> this ****ing code did it to me again
<MageKing17> "That doesn't really make sense to me, but I'll assume it was being done for a reason."
<MageKing17> **** ME
<MageKing17> THE REASON IS PEOPLE ARE STUPID
<MageKing17> ESPECIALLY ME

<MageKing17> God damn, I do not understand how this is breaking.
<MageKing17> Everything points to "this should work fine", and yet it's clearly not working.
<MjnMixael> 2 hours later... "God damn, how did this ever work at all?!"
(...)
<MageKing17> so
<MageKing17> more than two hours
<MageKing17> but once again we have reached the inevitable conclusion
<MageKing17> How did this code ever work in the first place!?

<@The_E> Welcome to OpenGL, where standards compliance is optional, and error reporting inconsistent

<MageKing17> It was all working perfectly until I actually tried it on an actual mission.

<MageKing17> TIL the entire homing code is held up by shoestrings and duct tape, basically.

Wow ... just ... have a picture of Michelangelo's David

In all seriousness because of the exposure advantage Ezio has (3 games instead of 1) it really boils down to taste; I like my Reinaissance Italy, Joshua likes his Golden Age of Piracy.

Re: Assassins Creed Black Flag FREE
I love the atmosphere and level design in these games, but find the basic AC gameplay irritating and not fun at all to play. The repetitive combat and fiddly controls combined with the lack of save games just got on my nerves. I really liked AC2 for the story and atmosphere but haven't played any of the games since then.
