While playing the first few AC games, I noticed that Ezio, Altair, and Desmond all have the same scar on their lip. When I played AC3 I noticed Conner didn’t and I got really confused about it. We know how Ezio got his scar, but what about Desmond and Altair?
One of my favourite things in Assassin’s Creed III was the multiplayer. I spent more hours than I could count on it. But I want to focus on the multiplayer videos that you unlock as you level up, there were the normal videos and then there were the hacked ones. I loved the hacked ones, they were so ominous and made me excited for AC4, that they would continue it in that multiplayer. But they didn’t, and it was a little disappointing. But I still loved it!!
I just started playing the Assassin’s Creed series. I just finished Brotherhood. And one thing that I adore almost as much as the time period plot lines is the modern story line. I’ve heard a lot of people say that the modern story line is shit, they don’t like Desmond, or a bunch of other things, but I love it. The mystery of what Subject 16 put inside of the animus and hunting them all down to get the secret video, learning all about the first civilization, I love all of the religious and political, and sometimes downright creepy aspects of the modern story line. The fact that I’ve heard that the modern story line is kinda abandoned in later games really makes me sad because to me that’s what really set it apart from just an ordinary adventure game.
I always wondered about killing the guards and soldiers in the AC series. I could buy it with Altair, since the first Assassin’s Creed had a more nuanced approach, and didn’t portray the Assassins as outright saints. But that’s not the case with the later AC games. Am I seriously supposed to buy that the guard that I just stabbed 50 times with my hidden blade during a counter was a Templar shill, and not just some ordinary dude out to make an honest living? That EVERY guard and soldier is a Templar shill? Just kind of makes me wonder. And makes me think that AC would have been better as a historic GTA-style game, where the Assassins are amoral killers for money and political influence (and survived beyond getting their home demolished by Genghis Khan). Would be much better than that mystical/sci-fi mumbo-jumbo they’ve got going now…
Man, if you look through the “fandom wank” tag a third of the confessions will be of people complaining about whatever assasins, another third will be people complaining about people complaining, and another third will be people saying “why can’t we just all get along!! ^u^” Wait woops, I guess that makes this confession a bit more meta :o
I honestly hated AC3 in the beginning. I hated the idea of the Revolutionary War, but later on in the game I began to be interested, but only along Sequence 8, when the story breaks away from the war missions and goes into its own story. At the very end, I was so into the gam that I cried. I do not know if Ubisoft intended it to be like that, boring for players in the beginning, then emotionally powerful in the end, but it was for me. It’s now one of my favorite video games of all time.
Alot of people seem to think that ACIV wasn´t an AC game because Edward didn´t join the Assassins until the end. What they don´t get is, that this game is about the Creed. Edward perfectly represents the kind of person that the templars think people with freedom will become. He´s greedy, selfish and has no problem hurting other people to enrich himself. However, after losing everyone he loves, he realizes, that this form of Anarchy is the wrong way to go and joins the Assassins, hence making this the first game, that actually shows us a guy taking on the creed for good reasons, contrary to the previous protagonists, who were either already Assassins to begin with, or only joined for vendetta reasons.

I started reading the AC books before actually playing the games. When Roberto di Sable was mentioned, i thought he had a lot of hair (something like Thor from Marvel), you can immagine when i first saw him… Bald.
Assassin’s Creed has always made me feel very emotional. Everytime I finish an Assassin’s Creed game, I return to the playstation menu and hover over the Assassin’s Creed logo and listen to the music. This is sometimes for hours…
My two favourite characters are Ezio and Connor. Why?
Ezio had a huge personality. But I hated the side of him which was a constant womaniser and a complainer, but I liked the side that cared for his family. This is how people actually are, with two sides, which is what makes his personality so great.
Connor’s pure determination is makes him one of my favourites, that’s it, because that is just awesome and he’s an awesome fighter.
Altair was okay, I like him.
I HATE Edward. He’s like Ezio but without the care. He turned from a womaniser into a wise man, like Ezio, but Ezio had three games. They crammed Edward into one, which I hated.
For me, the worst parts of Black Flag were the naval missions. But that’s because I was so bad at them, it was laughable. It kind of makes me sad, because they were so well done. I loved the sounds, the animations and I really admired the game play of the battles, but I just couldn’t get a hang of them.
My ex introduced me to the AC franchise and after he broke up with me (Twice. Gave him a second chance after he came crawling back and apologized saying it was all a big mistake and he did the same thing again. So, it really stings.) I realized I couldn’t play the games anymore because I associated them with him and I’d start crying. it hurt too much to play them. When AC4 came out, I vowed to finally do all I could to remove that association since I adored the series. I played not only through it, but went back and finished Revelations and AC3 without a single tear. Thank you Edward, for helping me get through that and helping me claim back Ezio and Connor.

Lets be honest here, AC Brotherhood Multiplayer was the best out of the series. Especially connection wise.

Each time i listen to the AC:R Main theme i feel sad.
Like i’m lost, in need of guidance and at the same time, i need to get something done, with the feeling… this is the last time.
Getting it done or not, the fate is decided.
But, this isn’t the feeling that goes through the whole game and book?
PS: Brazilian regards to you people! :)
Has anyone ever wished for a Celtic Asssassin? I mean, come on, the Celts were Brutal, Intense even! I’ve never been to Ireland, (yet!) But it would be amazing traversing the Emerald Isle.
The game could take place *right* before the Roman conquest, (After Aquilis’s death of course), during Roman rule, and during the Fall of Rome, It would also be amazing to team up the gladiatorial Assassin Aquilis, (Considering he’s a ancestor of Desmond) Think of the Children, Laddies! The Music! The BEER! The ALE! (Don’t Drink, folks!)
