This post is mostly for PC gamers. I saw on the Ubisoft website, that Brotherhood will be available for download in "Spring, 2011".

Febuary isn't in spring. But March is. So, I guess the "Spring 2011" is confirmation that the game will be available in March, and not Febuary?

Given AC1 came out early April 2008 for PC, and AC2 came out early March 2010 for PC, I'd be very surprised if we saw ACB any time before March 2011. This only supports that.

So just out of sheer curiosity, do pc gamers still play the console versions of games first when they come out or do they just not play it at all and wait till the game comes out several months later. Because I don't think I could live knowing that other people get to play assassin's creed brotherhood before me. Just curious.

What does it mean by available for download? I mean, you can only download the game but there's no CD available?

Way to rub it in, pal. I can't speak for other PC gamers, but I've waited for all of the AC series games. It has been rough. But I think ACB will be the last AC game I get. Because I'm sick of always waiting-and for no good reason, too.

Yeah-you can purchase and download the game from the Ubisoft website-in spring, 2011.

I'm sure it's different for each person. For me, I'm not downgrading my platform to a console for ANY game, so in my case, I wait.

And yes, it's quite frustrating knowing Ubisoft clearly plays favorites with certain demographics of the fan base.

That makes me wonder also -- that would certainly suck. Just one more way to show Ubi's favoritism of the console crowd.

And just so you other guys who are stuck waiting for the PC format know, if you really can't wait to find out what happens in Brotherhood, you can watch Playthrough/Walkthrough videos on youtube. The graphics really suck because they're on the console, but at least you'll know what happens in the story.

Ya, I've played AC1 & AC2 at least 5-7 times each. Such an awesome franchise. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif Love the series, I just don't like Ubisoft because of their dirty business practices.

I'm playing ACII for the 5th time, and I'm still fascinated by the story, and love the gameplay....I know right, a really cool game, but yeah, Ubisoft bites

Yeah, maybe their stock would bounce back up if they weren't alienating and angering a good chunk of their fanbase, lol.

Really? Just hold RT while fighting and try to wait for them to swing in a manner that's like a slow wind-up to give you more time to time your counter, try to never get fully surrounded -- use quick step to keep them in front of you. Also if you're fighting the type of enemies that are carrying heavy weapons or long weapons, I fight them with throwing knives because you can gradually drop the targets and if one of the heavies swing at you, you can perform a disarm and use their weapon to take out a couple guys quickly (the original carrier of the weapon, and the first to attack you with a simple counter).
