Does anyone else find it ridiculously stupid how when YOU get boarded, Haytham and that other random guy by your side just stand there?

The layout of NY seems more packed and less widespread, that is good. And that also proves many of the criticism those cities got back in AC III.

PD I wish the North Atlanctic/Artic was used in AC IV, gorgeous location!!!!!

I really don't want to see these videos,maybe they have some spoilers,but at the same time I really want to see them.....aaaaaaaand apparently Shay's going to have to reclaim the Morrigan at a certain point of the game.
Also,why is his outfit yellow in the middle?It seems weird.

Far more so than I expected, actually. Is it possible that... Rogue might actually be good? :eek:

I usually dont believe in previews, Ryse´s ones made the game look like the best thing ever. I was THAT hyped, I considered the option of purchasing an XBOX One..... And then those same guys ended up bashing it.

Fun but familiar.

I thought this was established. Who really thought Rogue would be a bad game?

There are many people who say the game is bad just because it's using the same engine from Black Flag,so yeah,a lot of people.

I thought and still think the mere existence of Rogue is a testament pure greed!!!!!

Sure I loved AC IV´s naval, and l like the North Atlantic/artic to a point in which I wish It was possible to explore it in AC IV. But the fact that 95% in this game is recycled, even a freaking location, the lack of marketing and novel, at least for now, and the rumours of just six secuences, just to name a few, make me think of a rushed, cash crab product not worthy of a full $60 price.

If the game turns out to be good, I´ll eat my words.

One of the previews saying Shay comes off as bland 'like Altair and Connor'. Probably because he wasn't smiling and joking every second on screen.

Every protagonist should just be a reskin of Charming charismatic guy X to stop the complaining... Although he could have a point, if he's anything like Aiden Pearce for instance...

Two Aiden Pearces in the same release date.....oh boy.

Same engine? A little more than just the engine imo.

This game having the same mechanics and all as Black Flag has still managed to grab my interest in it. Can't. Wait.

If Black Flag was a good game, why wouldn't Rogue be too?

Absolutely.

"Shay, he doesn’t forfeit his humanity when he becomes a Templar. He simply decides to follow another cause. It does not turn him into a callous, mindless killer. Shay remains Shay. He has an emotional evolution throughout the game, but it’s still him, he’s simply changes his outlook. His loyalties remain the same.”


Shay Cormac is a human being, one that I can understand and relate to more than Connor, Ezio, or Altair -- all of whom had human motivations as well. It's discomforting that the assassin I find the most interesting is the one who's killing the people I've fought alongside for almost 10 years of my actual life.

^ ^ ^

:eek::nonchalance::D

Screw it, I'm keeping my console pre-order. I'll buy it twice.

It does have too many similarities to Black Flag...but I liked Black Flag so that's ok. I'm just excited to play two new AC games. T- 29 days!

Exactly!I loved ACIV,so why would I complain about Rogue?Also,don't make countdowns,sooner or later you'll start counting how many hours are left.

Good! I was really concerned about Rogue so this relieves me.
