22 LONG days till release!
I suppose the games will go gold soon,so that means that we will get leaks and ofc SPOILERS!
Also,i don't know about you guys,but i won't listen to any reviews/visit the forums until i have completed the game,so that i can create my own opinion about it.

Postscript:Sometimes the forums feel like they are dead so i have tocreate threads to get the conversation going...Maybe it has to do with the time zones.

I guess atm I've gone half dark, I don't really read any ACU/ACRo related news or reviews and when I visit the forums I'm careful with the thread titles and forum posts, not really avoiding but not going into details either.
I'm going completely dark maybe a week or so before ACU release date, and coming back after completing story missions. I don't know when I'm going to be able to play ACRo (PC release date not yet announced), but I'll try my best not to be spoiled too much (yea, mission impossible right there)

I don't care about Rogue spoilers at all. For Unity I'm avoiding the biggest spoilers. I don't read reviews that go into story details and I didn't look at the map legend that was posted a few days ago. I'll probably go dark 1-2 weeks before release. Good thing this is the first time PC players will get the game at the same time as consoles.

Very cool to see. It can't be too long now. I say this week or next. Spoilers for AC:RO don't really bother me but Unity might. I doubt I will go dark at all which doesn't help my case.

So this basically means that theoretically speaking,we might get leaked walkthroughs by next week,or even the end of this week?I should defintwley avoid story spoilers...

Probably not, those don't typically start cropping up until under a week before release, and if they do they're almost immediately taken down. Going gold just means they've finalized the code to put on discs, not that those discs have actually been printed, packed and shipped yet.

I'm a fool. I go dark once it feels like I'm getting too much. I usually watch leaked gameplay of the beginnings of games. I ruined the fact that Haytham was a templar. But still, I probably won't go dark until something gets spoiled.

I've never followed an AC game this close before so I'll just have to wait and see when I'll go dark.I definitely don't want any spoilers this time around.

In the recent days and weeks I've seen a whole lot more gameplay of people doing the same Notre Dame mission in a different way or some other mission at different conventions. The video quality is never good so they aren't that appealing for me to watch.

They've all been mainly gameplay and show off a good deal of combat.

Nah, going Gold just means its being sent off. Retailers normally get stocks a week or 2 before release. So I would say stuff will start leaking first week of November.

Well it started going way downhill after AC3. That game literally ruined this place. A lot of good posters left and we got an influx of Connor fans.

The fact is, Connor gets brought up in too many threads that arent even to do with him. When he does it then just starts debates about his character, threads get derailed.

Me, personally, I don't post as much as I use too, and thats manily due to the Connor issue, it just makes the forums bad. It's not even the fact that there debates about him really, more that it pops up everywhere, it is tiresome.

A lot of times I see a thread where I want to post something, but then I see the convos and where the thread has gone I just can't be bothered, mostly cause I know thats not what people are bothered to talk about anymore in that particular thread.

Not to mention a lot of people have raging hormones for AC3. They will defend that game to death but it is seriously flawed. I am a huge AC fan, I wouldn't have 16K posts if I wasn't, but I know a bad game and it's AC3. However, trying to get this point across just ends in someone defending it somehow, which doesn't make sense and it just ends in arguments.

For someone who has been around for 4 years this was never an issue. Yes we had Altair fans, yes we had Ezio fans, but during the time I joined (AC Brotherhood release), there was little infighting. I didn't see anyone talking about "closure" for Altair, it was more an "Altair vs Ezio" scenario, who was better, why, opinions etc.

It just makes this place highly unenjoyable (Yep, making that word up). This place was not the same as it was. Ask anyone who was here from before 2011.

But the fact also remains that I do want to come here. I do take little breaks from posting. Whenever I don't, I'm still watching, but theres nothing I feel like I can contribute to discussion wise.

Heck even the mods (Shade and Widow) noticed it and have had to step in on several occasions to tell people to stop talking about Connor in threads he doesn't belong.

10-21-2014, 01:09 AM
Nope, I bumped into some pretty major spoilers for AC3 but surprisingly they didn't really ruin the overall experience for me. Know what I mean? It still felt intact and wholesome. There was still a lot of mystery and excitement leading up to the spoiled moments.

I probably won't be able to participate in the discussions as much - since I won't have the games on launch day - but I'll stick around to read as much as I can.

I usually am good about not spoiling myself with videos for new AC games. And if I do spoil something, it's not the end of the world. I have 2 games to play and I highly doubt I'll spoil both of them for myself. My biggest gripe was trying to figure out which one to play first...

I see.Well,now that you mention it,Connor is now everywhere.I'm in a AC fan group in Facebook,and almost every time there's someone either insulting or protecting him and the game.Same thing in youtube.
If it makes you feel any better,Ezio kicks Altair's ***.

Haha I said the same thing at the end of AC2!!!!(literally actually. Then laughed my *** off when Desmond said the same thing). I found the whole last sequence awesome up until we didn't actually kill Rodrigo and suddenly I was fighting his magic glowing staff with an army of clones.....I was like. Ok???????? This is weird now??????

But then the first civ thing happened and I was just like "what the ****????"

That marked the point for me when AC got into stuff that was just too weird for most people and casuals. And ever since they've been struggling to figure out what to do about that and bring things back to the way they were before that moment in franchise history.

Eh, besides that, one other big problem for me personally is people who love AC2 but criticize the **** out of games that have got the same flaws as AC2 does. Only AC2 is immune because it's AC2. It's a great game, but, come on!

Also the whole deal with 'not a real Assassin's Creed' that comes up here a lot for lots of stupid reasons. The most stupidest one is 'guns', even though we had those ever since AC2. And other stupid reasons are like 'it's not an Assassin's Creed game because the character is not an Assassin for most of the game', despite the narrative exploring the Creed itself more than a bunch of other AC games. >_<

There was a time when I enjoyed going into arguments, because even when opinions collided, those were still fun and insighting arguments, but now a lot of them are just 'lalalalala I'm not listening I'm right and I'm going to reply with things that don't have anything to do with what you said'. Heck, a lot of times I start writing a post and then go '**** this, I don't want to fall into an argument over this, what's the point anyway'

i want to see more. im gonna avoid cutscenes and story details, but i really wanna see mroe gameplay. i wanna see more fluent uninterrputed high quality footage of stealth and combat. i dont consider these spoilers since to me playing the game and seeing the game played are very different because playing the game is very personal in a game like AC. story stuff are exactly the same for me and for whomever plays the game in a video so these i won't watch.

That's effing stupid. Is there any other pre-loads for anything else? I understand Ubisoft is an Xbox and PS fanboy but there needs to be more pre-loads. I heard a rumor that Steam might get a pre-load but it was confirmed this morning that Ubisoft's own client Uplay is "not allowed" to do pre-loads at all. If there is no pre-loads I might serious just have to cancel digital and go on Amazon and buy the CD version.

I agree, the game probably have more than 40gb of download, and without the preload many people won't play the game at launch :/

I also agree. I won't be able to play it on launch either. That's why I'm thinking of retail if I find out that steam doesn't have a pre-load.

What is holding Ubisoft to ship Rogue and sell it already? I dont think they're doing new mission in 2 weeks tbh.

Probably fixing some stuff.Why do you think there are patches even at the day it releases?

Its too early to go dark. I doubt there will be any leaks until the last week before release. Its still 14 days until release. I dont expect any spoilers until the last 5 days.

See y'all when I've finished Unity and Rogue - maybe after Christmas since I'm not getting Rogue on release. Fingers crossed the games are good and you all enjoy it. :)

Well,it seems that the game will be leaked any day now and this means SPOILERS.So,for the first time ever i might go dark,cause i really should avoid story spoilers and walkthroughs this time.Thank god i just bought FIFA 15,which means that the time will pass quickly.It's 2-2,5 weeks after all.I guess no major trailer will be released the following days(except from the launch one.I am done waiting for the IGN videos).See you in a few weeks(hopefully the game is great and it will take many months!) for analysis and debates!!

GoldenBoy9999
10-27-2014, 10:44 PM
I'm trying to decide how quickly I should beat the game, both games actually. If I play at the pace I'd like I'd be done a little before Christmas with both games but I feel like the main, cool discussion about the game will be over. I'm in a pickle.

It's just a weird feeling to wait all year for this game and then beat it in a few weeks. I'm also getting GTA V, Sunset Overdrive, and Far Cry 4, along with some others this fall so I may play the 2 AC's first and then play the others.

Right now I'm going to stay on the forums as long as possible while avoiding spoilers.

Does anyone else know how long the discussions usually last?

Speaking of Gladiator, the Armor of Brutus was clearly inspired and based off of Crowe's armor. In case, no one didn't noticed :p

Just a bit silly how easy it is right now to find leaked footage, I normally browse these threads (if not respond to them) quite often but ever since that 900res/30fps and pics leaking all over the place you just can't avoid it here, no matter how hard the mods work it seems.

This thread and 1-2 others seem the only ones to browse safely. Only a few days to go so I think that's me dark :)

Well stolen ones anyway. They aren't officially or legally for sale at the moment. And I don't know that they've been shipped to all the retail stores yet. Thus why Ubi hasn't said anything or given the green light. And also goes about finding and plugging up any leaks and deleting videos that pop up on the net. As right now anything that's out there on the net and any copies in personal possession are all stolen or in violation of Ubis copyright licence. Or both.

So there's that

So cause people have it illegally, they won't say it went Gold? That doesn't make sense.

As soon as it went Gold it should have been stated. Then i would expect a few days later for it to leak.

Nah I'm just saying it will officially "go gold" the minute Ubi let's their press embargoes fall and the press can release their reviews and such. Then people can post all the footage and walkthroughs they want. I mean they can now....but they get taken down fairly quickly.

I expect the embargo to drop and the flood of info and footage right around 4-3 days before release.

I mean stuff leaks out now. But it's pretty tightly under control and not very spoilery.

Going "Gold" Does not mean you can release footage though.

Going Gold just means that it is complete and has been sent off for manufacturing.

Oh see I always thought it was when it ships out for distribution. Like when Walmart and GameStop get it in but haven't put it on shelves yet. Usually only a few days before official release. I guess I was confused. It just made more sense this way. Because we're already at or beyond the manufacturing point. And we have next to nothing of significance to work with footage/leak wise. I mean some non spoiler free roam and a few minutes of the very opening isn't much of anything. Considering it's ben manufactured for a few days now.

Guess I had it wrong. I never really understood exactly what that term meant anyway
