View Full Version : Realistic steak in AC4.

In black flag I want to be able to eat steak. REALISTIC steak that takes 15 minutes to eat done in a cut-scene. Steak has been around for a while and all good games implement steak in a very good way. I want to be able to customize my steak, as well. I want to decide if I want it medium-rare or well-done and what sauce I would like to put on my steak. I believe all this would add to the vibrancy of the game. There is nothing like sitting down to a juicy steak after a long day and I think AC4 should capture that feel.

Exactly. It will put the game up at LEAST 2 points in my book from the original ranking no matter what. I will not get the game if it does not include some realistic steak in it.

As we speak I got a steak just sitting on the counter getting ready to be given the pan treatment. Thank you for wetting my appetite!

I actually suggested something similar in an other thread, namely an open fire pig-roasting mini-game. The idea is that the player, by rotating the analog stick, rotates the pig to get an even crust. Too slow and some part of the pig will burn and get black, while another doesn't get cocked properly. Too fast and there won't be a crispy crust at all. I think it's very important for Ubisoft to realize that not all AC fans like action or stealth. There needs to be other activities so that people more interested in for example cooking can find something that suits them.

At the same time, if you invest money into a mini-game like this, it's very important that all players get to experience it. It would be dumb if you spent X million on a steak simulator and the action/stealth fans never used it. To avoid this there must be a thorough tutorial level in the campaign that step by step explains the intricacies of the system. On top of this there should be an achievement/trophy as a further incentive for people to take part in this activity. Something like "Meat lover: Eat 10 steaks and roast 10 pigs" would ensure that everyone got the maximum enjoyment out of the game.

How about storage of these valuable pigs? Might I suggest a pig-locking mini game?

Pigs can not stand a chance against a good steak. I would much rather have a well grilled steak in AC4: Black Flag that wets my appetite than I would a ham. I want to have a different kind of steak for each time I play. And I want my steak prepared FOR me, not by me. I want to see the cook prepare the food fresh.

I think it's important to offer a wide variety of cooking and eating mini-games. Also things like sewing your own assassin outfit, wash clothes etc would be very welcome additions that would add to the realism and mass appeal of the franchise.

Offering that kind of freedom would be against everything the franchise stands for. AC3 sold more than 12M copies and many of these people are inexperienced steak eaters. Therefor there must be green markers clearly indicating where you are allowed to cut. If you leave that kind of thing up to the players to figure out on their own, they may sit for several seconds not knowing what to do. That would create a lot of frustration for the player. Now that I think about it, it's probably better to do it in a cut-scene so the player can't possibly make a misstake and disrupt the cinematic flow of the game.

I wish so if they implement steaks to do a tutorial on how to cook them, similar as how it happened in AC3 for opening locked doors.

This exactly or I will never buy a Ubisoft game again you scammers! Also we need a button to toggle the hood while we eat, as well as a PRESS B TO SKIP prompt at all times when the steak is being cooked. Some players may be agitated and experience discomfort by the storytelling of the steak and want to move on.

I agree with Double. To have Ubisoft put in a vegetarian option would just be too much out of the main feel of the game. I don't want Ubisoft selling out because some guy wants a vegetarian option. A good steak is the biggest thing to me, as well as the options I have for my steak.

I like steaks and shovels almost as much as the quality of the bricks in Assassin's Creed series.

Ubisoft puts so much love and care into making these bricks that I can stare at them all day while playing Assassin's Creed and do nothing else.

I hope the bricks in Black Flags maintain the standard that the bricks of previous games have set in quality.

If this is not in Assassins Creed 4, I will stay true to my word that I will not buy another Assassins Creed game. I am fed up with Ubisoft not bothering to put realistic steak in their games.

At the end they share a satisfying meal smile and use their napkins to wipe their mouths from the juicy steak.

then Charles lee put down his knife and fork while conner just puts down his fork. They then both look at each other like they did in the game when charles knew what coming. And then conner stabs Charles.

so yeah same ending, more satisfying.

Yes! A true assassin blends into the world and is a blade in the crowd, yet at one with enviroment around him. What better makes an assassin blend in than realistic eating mechanics - the hidden blade could be excused as mere steak knives and the assassins robe as one big napkin!

Yes, this is how a true assassin operates, unlike the savage Connor or selfish Edward - the character will care so deeply about the order he will risk eating his unpreferred form of steak to remain one with the crowd.
