Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood comes out tonight/tomorrow and it's got multiplayer and shit so let's do it

It's the sequel to Assassin's Creed 2: Fucking Awesome, which was the sequel to Assassin's Creed: Should Have Spent Another Year Making This Game

i wish i'd replayed AC2 recently to get recaught up on the story but too much stuff came out so now I'l just read the wiki

who wants to stab each other

    Does this one have a stupid story like the other two, or is it just "here do cool assassin shit with your bros"

    it has a story that will probably be awesome until the last cutscene which will be stupid as shit, just like the last two

    This game would be so awesome if they just cut the future bullshit from it. I loved 2, and I have no idea why they couldnt just make an awesome game set during that time period about a guy named Ezio, and instead had to inject it with

    also the first issue (of three) of the comic book came out this week and it was pretty cool

    but that was to be expected because it's by Karl Kerschl and Cameron Stewart who are both ballers

    I basically just ignore the whole future part and imagine that we have an awesome War of the Roses style period piece with Borgias-style families.

    Why cant we have that video game developers? Some of us arent 13 and dont need scifi dues-ex-machina garbage in everything we play.

    For me the best parts of 2 were helping your family and being a general scoundrel at the beginning, it went downhill from there.

    I have a confession, fellows

    I never played AC2, and never finished AC because I got bored of the same shit all the time

    1) Does AC2 repair that, 2) should I play AC2, 3) on a scale from one to Russell, how retarded am I for skipping AC2


    and 4) if I should get it, what system

    if you liked Assassin's Creed in the least bit, you'll love AC2

    It fixed 99% of AC's flaws

    as for system I don't think it really matters (other than PC)

    If they do nothing but fix the few issues that AC2 had this game will be great.

    Issues like when I got stuck on stairs, that was the most frustrating thing ever.

    I played some of AC and disliked it after not very long, for many of the same reasons you did, so I didn't finish it... just watched my roommate finish it, really

    then I picked up AC2 and could not put it down until I was completely finished with the game

    so yeah, AC2 is a significant leap up from AC

    AC2 was an awesome game, throughout.

    I'm looking forward to Brotherhood but I'm being cautiously optimistic because of the recruitment aspect of the game. It didn't work in MGS : Portable Ops and isn't a game mechanic I'm fond of.

    I remember seeing a part in that Burn My Shadow trailer where you stab some dude up through the throat/chin then blast him off with the gun. That part sold the game to me.

    Mine too.

    I also enjoyed the counter when you had a big sword or an axe and you swing it right into the guy's crotch and leave it there. The guard makes a little jump up and then slumps to the ground.

    When I get it I'm playing through the storyline first because I have to, and then will I play multiplayer.

    But holy shit can I not wait to play that multiplayer. It looks really good and somewhat inventive which is something good to see in games these days.

    Spoiler:

    I'm with you. I loved finding the glyphs/piecing together the conspiracy stuff. My only disappointment was at how much that last scene in the Vatican gave away. Some things are a lot more interesting when they're only hinted at but I guess they needed to move the story forward.

    I really should wait until I finish my current freelancing workload before I buy this game...
