well, threatening the livelihood of your main source of advertising probably contributed a little also. But yeah, the premiums are getting silly.

Wow. Should have quit after you left Geek and Grant. Loss after loss, with plenty of bad play from me. Got to know when to fold 'em. That was ugly.

Been there.

Hi Dad's, 

I have been looking at this game for a bit not knowing how i feel about it, as it's released today i was wondering if any of you guys have this and what are your thoughts?

I loved Black flag but wasn't keen on Unity.

I'm picking it up today, but I really don't know when I will get to play it because I'm pretty heavy into Witcher 3 right now.  I also feel like if I play it for a little bit, I might really like it, and tell you that, but then later, it might suck.  I think I liked Unity at first, but then the more I got to playing it, the more I started hating it.  I would hate to rush a review.  Sitting at a 78 on Metacritic, which is pretty good.  And Unity was a 70.  So I think it is better, and trying.

I've had Unity (from Gamefly) sitting in a shelf at home for easily 3 weeks.  Halo 5 is almost here.  I'm wondering if I should even start that if it's crappy.

 

Staying on topic, though, I've only heard and read good things about Syndicate.

This came out last Friday and I've been playing nothing but this since i got it Friday night.

 

This game looks gorgeous.  There's a lot of detail in everything about how the game looks.

 

Other then Damian, who else is playing this?  I only know Damian is playing cause I got a community update about a Helix Glitch he had found and it marked it on my map which is a pretty cool feature.

 

I'm in Chapter 4, but have stopped progressing the story to do what I like to do in AC which is clear everything out in an area.

 

I've cleared 2 Burroughs and am working on grabbing everything I can in each burrough.  I'm almost done with the first one.

 

I also like how you can switch between the twins and play as whoever you want and that they each have their own set of skills even though they have identical skill trees. You just have to remember to go through and give out skill points whenever you switch between characters.

Haha, well said Chris.  I have also been playing this non-stop since Friday when I do play.  Glad you got that Helix.  I found 2 on my own, and got one from daddyed on my friend's list.  I'm on Sequence 4 as well, and working the many different aspects of it.  But then I also go off on tangents and just start clearing crap so I can get more money and get cooler gear and upgrades.  There is SO much to upgrade in this game.  I want to upgrade my hideout (WHICH IS A FREAKING TRAIN!!!) so I can earn more money, but then I also want to upgrade my Rooks because I started upgrading them, and WOW!!  It works.  They are killing people before I can.  I was in a fight, and by the time I made my way to my Rook to help him out, there were 3 dead blighters at his feet.  Way to go!

 

And speaking of fighting, I LOVE THE FIGHTING IN THIS.  They took more of a boxing type feel to the combat, intermixed with the weapons you choose.  Right now I am using the Kukri blade on the Jacob, and the cane with Eve.  I want to use some brass knuckles at some point, but I really like that blade.  It is so visceral.  The combat is really well done, and there is such variety to the tasks.  I love the carriage driving and combat.  That is really satisfying.  I also enjoy kidnapping people and shoving them into a carriage.  Haha.  Good fun.

 

I'm at level 5 now, and really can't wait to level up some more.  I'm glad you get the double assassination skill early on, and I love how it takes place.  Glad they kept the one thing they did right in Unity which was the "X" for upward freerunning, and "O" for downward freerunning.  It also works much better.  The only thing I hated was that I once wanted to kill a blighter, and I thought I had him highlighted, but I ended up air assassinating a cop.  WHOOPS!!  I didn't want to be a bad guy.  Oh, and that hook is awesome.  It makes traversing the world much, much easier.  I also like ziplining across gaps, and then dropping down to air assassinate two blighters.  SURPRISE!!

 

I am also glad they brought back the crime solving cases from Unity.  I really enjoyed those, and these are no different.  I had a hard time on one with the doctor and the dead lady in the park.  Didn't really figure that one out.  But I was happy to have solved the next one I did with the Army Colonel who led his men in Africa.  I figured that one out.

 

So I am definitely enjoying this AC more than Unity.  It's not quite as good as Black Flag, but I mean, that is now the pinnacle of AC games.  This is still a great game, and I'm having more fun than I thought I would.  Will I ever get to go back to Witcher DLC and MGSV?  Probably not till I finish this game, so that is pretty good for me.

I think some threads were combined. I'm sure I looked at your thread (Jedi's thread) an hour ago and it was showing that the thread was created today and yours was the first post, now it's showing it was created last week and your post is #5
