Took them long enough.
EDIT: Finished watching, bloody loved it.
And I like how the rope dart is not auto win.

Any what exactly do you mean by "Rope dart is not on auto win"?

And all I hoped for was to hear music in that gameplay video in HD but this time it had commentary.. grr

You dont just press a button and you kill him, it seems that there is more to it than that.

Yes they finally gave us commentary :) looking forward to more like this and especially liked that they "won't retread any ground" - also interesting that those disguised redcoats aren't assassins!

...They are Assassin's. He said so in the video.
Also, I loved the combat animations, and the new ''close up'' feature.

He said that "Assassins don't always work alone", not necessarily saying they were Assassins. I

OT: Alex is such a cool guy. This is the best narration I've seen of this gameplay video so far. Is this the Comic-con footage?

HaSoOoN-MHD
07-13-2012, 11:42 AM
Yep, this is the Comic Con stuff.

This is not comic con footage. All it is is the Boston demo from E3. The only thing different is Alex's commentary. It never gets old watching it though :) Probably my favorite demo that they showed. That and the wilderness demo.

Also, he said that assassin's don't always work alone and these are his allies. He never said they were assassin's. They already confirmed that there isn't a brotherhood system, but something similar. i.e. what's show in the demo.

HaSoOoN-MHD
07-13-2012, 12:32 PM
...Wait, there is no Brotherhood? o-o
Also, this is what they are showing at CC, I believe.

GLHS
07-13-2012, 12:39 PM
They may be showing it there too...but that still doesn't take away from the fact that the demo itself is the Boston E3 demo. They had said there there will be a similar feature to the brotherhood used, and also added that there are no more factions. But, again, a similar feature is being used. Basically, it's the same principles, just used differently.

I always find it nice (nice but somewhat pointless) to watch the commentated trailers, and to be honest I would rather see a HD Boston Demo then a new one. I wouldn't be able to help my eagerness if they released a new one and end up consuming to much information about ACIII to find it's neat little additions surprising and therefore more enjoyable.

That was pretty awesome, I can't wait to see all the sweet killing animations Connor's got to offer.

It's good we actually have random side missions in AC III that were suppose to be in ACR. Should add alot of gameplay hours outside of the main story.

HaSoOoN-MHD
07-13-2012, 02:51 PM
They are not really random. Alot of them are like the side missions we know, they are just blended in with the game, you just bump into them.

Yeah I know. That side mission just looked like a really nicely blended part of the city life and it seems random because the NPC's won't have a glow around them waiting for you to press A like in previous AC games I think the side missions will feel similar to skyrim's mini side missions & they will be stackable in a menu system like skyrim's mini side missions too.

07-13-2012, 03:03 PM
Except those feel more organic, it wont just have some guy that is magically there just run too you like a stiff monkey and ask for something. It feels more organic, more alive.
Tracking? not sure. Maybe, but what if you have a quest that is like...17 years ago in game time?

That's a good point. Maybe it only stays in your Quest tracker for the remainder of the sequence?

I always thought the mission where Connor saves the guy was part of a main mission, not a randomly generated side quest. What if the player just saw this guard standing there arguing with the woman and wanted to assassinate him for fun, then the woman immediately mistakes him for a freedom fighter. What if Connor would have just walked away after killing the guard and not accept the mission? :p "Oh, thank you, kind sir! My husband's over this way if you... Wait, where the heck are you going?!"

I'm positive they are Assassin's. Watch this earlier Boston demo, and at about 4:04 and onward look very closely, they have Tomahawks that are shaped like the Assassin Symbol.

The only that kind of bugs me is that the Tomahawk is sharing some kill animations from the dagger.

But the new kill animations that I saw are awesome :p

playassassins1
07-13-2012, 10:36 PM
Yeah, its on PS3. Almost every demo shown was on PS3.

And I thiink the PC/PS3/XBOX/WII U versions won't differ that much. Wii U doesn't look like that big of an improvement from pS3. i can only notice their being different lighting. So, I'm not buying a Wii U for slightly better performance, I'll stick to my PS3 for now.

I'm pretty sure they are not pistols. Look very closely at the right side of the assistant's hip that is behind Connor at his left at about 4:08 to about 4:10, you can clearly see an Assassin's Tomahawk.

Generally, devs make the game for the 360 then port it to the PS3.
It seems the lead system for ACIII is the PS3.

Just because ubisoft favour Sony when it comes to AC franchise. Doesn't mean they will change business practices and work on the PS3 version first.

The XBOX being the more dev friendly system to work with would seem logical that they would still use that as the primary console to test on ect and hence be built for first.

I know Xbox is more dev friendly, but I find it odd that it is being played on a PS3 than a XBox. Who knows.
Maybe Mister Shade can ask? :p

They've always done that, go check Brotherhood.

PS3 cannot be the lead development platform....going from DirectX(Xbox) to OpenGl(PS3) is easy, but otherway round is HELL(a game would be like 4-5discs that way).
I guess they simply mean that it's going to be better for PS3. That's what they've always said

Yes, but at the time they was obviously only developing it for the ps3. Why now that it is multiplatform would they waste a bit of time developing for the PS3 first when they could probably get more work done faster by developing for the xbox and then porting from there? Seems like a stupid business practice to take if they was doing that.

No, you can save quests in the log so you can return to them later..

E3 demo`s Medicine man.

I saw that one, but the one with the woman seems like it's different than the medicine man one. The one with the medicine man you have to find things and bring them back, the one with the woman is her husband is being held captive, and possibly will be killed or tortured. The she hailed you down and then started walking towards where you needed to be, hoping you would follow, makes that mission look like it's not something you can come back to.

I could be wrong but that particular mission doesn't look like one you can save for later.

ever played red dead ?, i think it will probably be like that. It even has a familiar random event, a guy is about to get executed at the side of the road, you can save him... or just ignore him.

I did play Red Dead and those are the kinds of missions I'm wondering about. Are there going to be side missions that we can take and save for later or will there be just side missions like Red Dead where if you don't help the mission continues and you just bypass it. A combination of both would be great.

It's like a side side quest. In the demo i didn't understand why he wanted to go on the ship. There was no quest for it but I quess it was just showing off gameplay.
