Let me preface this by saying two things. First, I won't be active for most of tonight because I'm going to a LAN party, and won't likely be back on until tomorrow, so I may not get another daily thread in today (even though I'm behind). Second, very rarely does a video game trailer move me. With that, I'm going to say this:
I'm sold on ACIII.
After I neglected to buy Revelations because I predicted it to be mediocre (boy was I spot-on in retrospect), I was concerned about the creative direction of Assassin's Creed. Slowly that faded as info trickled in, but the reservations were still there. However, those reservations were shattered a few days ago when I saw this:
and instantly decided that it was an instant buy. Hell, that trailer alone reaffirmed my love for the series. Mind you, that's only the second time I've ever been impressed at all by a trailer (the other being the absolutely fantastic Michael advert).
Now with my love for the series being reestablished, I'm also sold on an AC rep in this game. I've never been against an AC rep, per se, but I've been vehemently against the presence of an old AC rep. Altair is dead. Ezio is dead. I don't want to see them again, because they (mainly Ezio) were oversaturated by the time Revelations came around, even if Ezio is one of my favorite characters of this generation. I'd been supporting Connor, Aveline, and Desmond since the question of which should be in first arose. Now that I'm excited for ACIII, I can say that I'm much more for an AC rep than I was before. I was neutral for one in general, but now I'm definitely in favor of one. That said, I'm still standing by the three current characters. Considering half the reason I wasn't sure about ACIII was because I felt Desmond should've just been the main character throughout, it's safe to say that Desmond's still in the lead. Connor still has to prove something to me, as does Aveline.
Anyway, that's all I really have to say on the subject. I'm not going to get too much into specifics, partially because I don't have much time to. Who would you guys like to represent Assassin's Creed (if anybody) for PSASBR? Would you prefer him/her as DLC or in the full game? Let me know below. I also still haven't decided on a thread for Monday, so be sure to throw out a few ideas, as well!
