Isn't anybody else at slightly depressed or upset that we won't get to play as her or anybody for 3rd person? Judging from what we've seen on initiates, she seems like a badass and the most likely candidate to be the Next "Desmond" of some sort. But atlas, I guess we're still stuck as "Us" in the Modern Day.

What do you guys think?

I'm not.

Galina looks boring.

Had enough of 'badass' women from recent Hollywood movies TBH.

would be fine with another lady or dude tho.

I certainly am.

Judging by discussions on the forums re: the recent turn they've taken with the present day story, I think there are plenty of others who feel frustrated.

I disagree......I think she's quite interesting from what we've seen like killing her sister and the Russian Brotherhood with no remorse or learning her skills quickly from her "Ancestors". Something that was only done by Desmond......but to each it's own I guess. I just personally think she looks more entertaining than "Me" sitting on my couch as the MD protagonist.

JustPlainQuirky
07-19-2014, 10:21 PM
As long as she's not a generic sassy badass like catwoman in Dark knight rises or Black Widow in Avengers i'll be fine.

But it is a better option than playing as "me" I suppose.

I don't have a problem with tough female characters. I don't particularly like "damsel in distress" type female characters.

I'm a little frustrated that we don't get to play as a third person character. However, I don't miss it that much. I think we might play as Galina in the near future... if Ubi decides to focus on the Juno saga.

JustPlainQuirky
07-19-2014, 10:24 PM
It's not tough I have a problem with. It's sassy tough badass trope I'm sick of the most, really. I don't mind tough peeps like Triss, Nilin, Faith or Samus who are tough but don't flaunt it off. Lara croft isnt like that either but she's kind of annoying at times for another reason TBH

I don't know Galina very well but as long as she's not generic hollywood badass then I'll be fine.

actually those plots are barely touched by Initiates, Initiates comes up with it's own new plotlines and such.

No really, I want them to return to the Desmond type of main characters, let us play as Voronina, or even as Otso Berg. I remember theories coming up after AC3's release where people said that Otso would be our next protagonist.

It would be interesting, to say the least. Just please, go back to that old style. It makes me happy that many people feel the same way.

Female characters don't necessarily have to be like sassy femme fatales. I'm talking about sharp and clever-witted characters, like Angelina Jolie's character in Salt.

Eh, sassy and sharp/clever-witted kind of go hand and hand. And it gets a bit overplayed IMO. But I never seen Salt.

I would like to see more personality types other than sassy clever badass and shy vulnerable cutie. ( i tend to see most of these in Anime though.)

Evelyn Salt isn't anything like that. She doesn't act flirty or cute with snappy dialogue. The best way to describe her is: she is the female version of Jason Bourne.

JustPlainQuirky

I don't know who Jason Bourne is but I'll take your word for it.

I trust in Ubi anyway. I feared Mary Read would be a generic sassy badass but they handled her fairly well. Especially when she was disguised as James Kidd. Got a bit ehh when she revealed herself though, but not by much.

But better than a tool than generic badass I suppose.

What!? You haven't watched any of the Bourne movies?

Anyways, I like Mary Read. She certainly wasn't a generic female character. I like female characters that are tough, strong and independent . I thought Shao Jun was pretty cool too, I wish she had her own game.

But that was only because she was broken over what happened to them as Nagato was really the only person she had left.
But she's really a genius as she came up with that strategy that WOULD'VE killed Obito if he didn't use Izanagi.

Actually the way I imagine it it's more like you would pull Juno's data into a simulated Animus environment and you would use the tools you gained from playing through Arno's life to destroy Juno.

I REALLY wanted galina to be the person we played as... but I know what you mean... I don't want a 'hero' I want a human! You want someone who has actual problems. But I mean her entire family is dead... she has nothing left... so she might be very interesting. ..

they never will put all their focus on the modern day

but an overarching modern day narrative is nice.

Namikaze_17
07-20-2014, 10:31 PM
I guess everyone is right when it comes to the focus being the modern day story itself. But the thought of playing as "me" just doesn't get me as hyped as opposed to playing as a character I like. ( I.e Desmond)
And the focus? Ubi has never put the focus on the aspect on the main character but what's around him/her.

I agree with you, problem is that after AC III´s ending Ubi has NOT been able to create a new arc in which the modern story is worth more than the "you will be playing yourself" thing.....Initiates has introduced some cool ideas, to bad those wont ever see the light.

Initiates is its own world, one that begun as a pretty "exclusive" thing few randomly had access to. I know it does not sound "right", but I remember a podcast in which Ashraf Ismail said in regards to a question involving Otso Berg and the initiates plot before the release of AC IV that "AC world is so vast and interesting, too bad we just dont have time and resources to explore it at its full In the main games, we have other ideas and plans for the future, etc etc etc"

And considering that nothing "exclusive" of that site has been used in AC III and AC IV.......

I'd be happy to get Galina or Gavin as the main character on modern day. We don't really know if it will happen down the road, since Initiates came out around AC3 and AC4 must have been almost done by then in terms of storyline. What I mean is only two games have passed (including Unity) since Initiates started, so I think there's the chance we'll have one of the modern day assassins as the protagonist on a future game. Fingers crossed.

There's actual worthwhile things I could be depressed about and I'm not depressed about those either. Couldn't care less that I can't play as her.
