Hello everyone I am back after a long break from assassins creed, trying to get my head around what games are the best for me. I just have tried so many, and I have foolishly gone around in a huge circle because often I find what you start out with really has a hold on you for the rest of your life.

So I am here to say sorry for leaving you all in the dark and genrally not being much of an active member, so my normal assassins creed duties will be resumed once I get my Driving Test over and done with>yeah that's been on my mind alot recently aswell.

I'll probably buy AC:B soon, as I have played the 2 previous titles to death and the kill streak in AC:B looks to be miles more accurate than the freeflow combat system I was previously used to in Batman Arkham Asylum. Assassins Creed just feels incredible, yet is realistic and not to over the top.

With my best regards,

Lbtc Smile

Good to have you back, Lbtc. Laughing out loud

Don't worry about the driving test; it always sounds much harder than it really is.

Will be eager to hear what you think of Brotherhood. The kill streaks are a lot of fun. But you can also throw spears and heavy weapons at guards too. That never gets old. Smile

Yeah, the driving test isn't all that difficult. It just takes a minute or two to get used to the feeling of controlling that machine. Or if it's a written test you're taking about, then just use common sense. Cool

I should have mentioned I am taking the practical test, and will be practising like hell Smile More good news, the original Assassins Creed game is now back in my cupboard above my PS3. Hopefully after I have concentrated on my test, I'll get some more free time to knuckle down to Templar bashing like I used to XD

I'll keep in touch,

Lbtc.

I have noticed some patterns in gamers who like the same games as me, so try these out if you haven't already. Basically try out the MGS and GTA PS2 games. The PS3 versions of each were, imo, a letdown as it didnt have the same fun atmosphere as the rest. But I notice most people who like GTA also like MGS and AC, and vice versa.

I swear if Ian spent as much time on GTA as he did on AC he would find some sick exploits and cool videos, im about to make a video series for GTASA, doing things the developers never really inteded you to do.

As for MGS, its more on the combat side of AC, that is it gives you a lot of variation on how you go about your mission. You can go through guns blazing, using gadgets and stealth to sneak by, a mix, or my prefered method, a ghost run ( that is you never let the patrol see you and you dont interact with them in anyway, not possible in many shooters) its like a mysterious death in AC, no detection or kills at all.

MGS is pretty good, but as for GTA I don't really like the concept of stealing vehicles and shooting police.

Not stuff related to AC, but GTA has its own set of exploits we use. For example I like to try get cars you cant get early in the game from other locked off islands. I use a bug where you can push drowned cars to spot underwater where you can drive underwater, and then drive onto the beach of the first island. In missions some cars have rare proofings that are not supposed to be collected, some cars will be bullet proof or explsionproof and you gotta find creative ways to obtain them.

I have tried GTA a few times, but I think I'll stay within the hidden blade for a very long time Wink I do try and keep an open mind to alot of new games, but when the AC series is this interesting I don't think I'll ever stop learning about it.

Altair's kickass Cool and at the moment I could not be enjoying AC1 any more XD

LBTC, I agree entirely. So hard to break away from such a vast new universe of content not commonly exploited, especially by video games. Has there been any other games this controversial in terms of religion and belief?

Is AC controversial? I always thought the disclaimer at the beginning was nothing more than Ubisoft covering its ass. The beliefs alluded to in the games do provoke discussion (I guess that could loosely fall under the heading of "controversial"), but I've hardly heard of anyone who takes these games seriously as a belief system. Doesn't mean it doesn't happen, of course.....

I guess controversial wasn't the best choice of words Lisa, I needed the word for "makes you wonder if there is a right, or wrong and if it resembles what we percieve it to be". Thought provoking I guess? Of course I don't think anyone in today's society would ever follow the creed as a religion, but AC sure asks alot of sensitive questions, at least I found them sensitive. All those chit-chats with Al-Mualim got me super philosophical. Actually I think that's when I realised I was going to like this series, alot. ANY DAY NOW ACIII!
