To help bring some positive energy onto the forums:rolleyes:, lets discuss what some of our favorite AC3 features that Ubi has showed off.

For instance, I really love the way Connor runs for some reason, all his animations are good but the way he dips down and sways his arms like an acutal sprinter is something in it's own compared to Altair and Ezio.

Even though this is kinda late, did anybody notice in the Boston demo how more alive the crowd was? Even the way Connor walks around while the Animus 3.0 showes the connection with people, instead of just pushing his way into random odd groups , something that was really really lacking in the past games.

Pictures, videos, etc are welcome.

I love the way Connor wields his weapons. How quickly and smoothly he uses them is just awesome. And the way he flips that tomahawk just before he hacks someone...it's the coolest thing I've ever seen.

Definitely the tree climbing for me. It's just such a rarely-touched-on ability in videogames, so it's nice to see something so extremely refreshing.


So Far? Nothing.

so much for the positive energy, M.

There goes the positive energy.
When You have a House, with about 6 or 7 brothers.. do you prefer one over the other ? Do you have a favorite ? No..

Ah, I see. Misunderstood the statement, I guess.

So... can you list your favorite features, at least? It doesn't contribute to the conversation if you just post that you don't have a favorite.

My favorite feature SHOWN so far would have to be the side-quest log.

For real. I wasn't getting that analogy at all. He asked "Do you have favorites," and instantly I thought "...Yes?"

Grew up with seven brothers and three sisters. Catholic parents...

This is not a sibling topic (I think)

My favorites so far are the new tree running/mountain climbing feature and the new killing feature. I just love how Connor can do all this so smoothly~ <33

The weather systems and overall immersion level with the new engine. Gameplay elements will have to wait until I can play.....

Generally I like most of its features, but generally I like connor wields, weather, tree running, naval battles, side quests. This are the features I like to use most.

I really like new figting style ,tree climbing, and hunting seems very interesting.

Tree running looks fun. I also like the improvements in the overall environment. From what we've seen of Boston, it looks like they've really managed to make it as close to a "living breathing city" as technology permits them to at the moment.

Yeah new crowd system is great and people in town look like they have some purpose.

Bow, hunt and side quest like a RPG.

Again like other people have said I'm really liking the way the crowd looks. In AC2 everyone just walked around in groups and it was obvious who you were supposed to blend with but here the crowd looks really natural and everyones on their own path and got their own little actions. I'd like to see more blending gameplay in the future.

Did you notice how he runs differently depending on the situation he's in? In the frontier he just kinda jogs, when he sprints after a target he stays lower (this could be due to the camera angle though) and when he was running away in Boston he was really sprinting for his life.

My favorite feature so far is the fact that Connor is the ancestor we play as this time. Since he brings all this new stuff to the table (Tree climbing, hunting, dual wielding, tomahawk, bow, rotating hidden blade, etc.). I also really love that the Frontier is open and from what I've heard really organic with a weather system going on, there being animals and other people, and even some smaller towns!

Treerunning, naval exploration and crowd mechanics are what I'm most excited about. Also Connor's new animations which look very fluid and detailed. I like how he automatically bends his head when walking under a sheet on a clothesline or the way he reacts to the people around him.

The thing that allows you to do several side-quests at once.

Yep, the sprinting/running is completely contextual now. I'm looking forward to some chase scenes in deep snow. It'd be cool to see Connor slip around a little when it's raining, too. But not enough to hurt the gameplay/make him trip, though.

My favourite feature so far is the same it has been for the past 5 years:

Being able to free roam huge cities and kill all the little innocent civilians and guards my eyes can see!!! :cool:(evil laugh)

The combat. Connor is brutal. One of his in combat takedowns is a triple chop to the chest for goodness sake. Wow!

Navigating in the trees looks extremely fluid and fun. I hope it plays as good as it looks.
