Anybody figure out a way to get into a city without blending in with scholars? Don't get me wrong, they're always conveniently around when I need to get into the city but I'd prefer to get in all  ninja2-like.


Have you tried creating a distraction?   I don't know if it will work (I went the scholar route) but it's an idea. 

What's this distraction business all about?  Do you just execute someone in close proximity to the guards?

I've only finished one assassination, but I got some achievement for doing it all sneaky-like.  Blade in the crowd, or something like that. 

I've gotten a hang of the controls now and I am liking it.  I had some side quest in Jerusalem where I had to collect 18 flags in 3 minutes and it really was neat to run and leap across the roof tops.  I really practiced on controls in the home-base city and found all 20 flags there to get a good grip on the controls and what not.

Combat is much better with counter-kill moves.  I'm looking forward to new combat things as I move along in the game. 

Someone mentioned it earlier, but it's good to go to the start menu after you complete an investigation and read up and view any attachments that may be there.  Neat for people who like to scan everything (a la Metroid Prime).

New favorite weapon is the M16 with ret dot scope.  Man that thing owns.  I kind of like the double tap perk as well  paranoid

I take it back I'm only playing through on Hardened and it's still kicking my ass.  Each mission gets less fun because of the sniping insta-gib baddies. 

just play on Regular man, if it's your first time.  I would never recommend to anyone to start out with Hardened or Veteran

Yep I dropped back down to Regular starting on "Heat".  I'll go back after I've finished up the game.

Yeah I've been playing through on Veteran and it's more frustrating than fun.  I think I'll switch to Normal and just enjoy the ride.

After the first assassination I got my short blade back.  I find that when you counter with the short blade, it's an instant kill and very cool.

Got it and played for a couple hours.  Controls will take some getting used to, but I'm not worried about it.  The game is beautiful, just amazing looking.  Is it me or does the light dim when the Sun goes behind clouds?  The character's voice does seem out of place, but it's a minor thing that I have no problem looking past.  So far, I'm having fun.  Back to 1191 for me!

P.S.  Great read from Gabe.  That's how I'll end up playing this game as well.  Searching out for all the goodies.

And for whatever reason (make up your own theories here), IGN has changed their PS3 review:

Quote
On Destructoid you can find the proof that IGN indeed modified its Assassin's Creed review.

The current review contains this:
"These big open worlds, which are fully interactive, do come at a cost. There is considerable texture pop-in and occasional framerate hiccups. None of this deters from the gameplay though, so it is forgivable."

The original review contained this:
"These big open worlds, which are fully interactive, do come at a severe cost on PS3. There is considerable texture pop-in and noticeable framerate issues. Playing back-to-back with the 360 version, it's obvious that Ubisoft did not devote enough resources to the PS3 edition. The framerate is considerably worse, so much so that it begins to affect gameplay in the later levels. You can get through the first two-thirds of Assassin with the framerate being just an annoyance, but it becomes more of an issue for the final third of the missions."

Hmmm...

This whole AC review business is madness!

I'm at level 26 now and I really want a new weap.  I've been using the M4 a lot, but it's weak.  The MP5 is nice, but the range is terrible.

I've also found that I like the red dot scope much better than the zoom scope.

The COD4 MOTD shows that they know something is up and that MS is working on it.

I was just able to play about an hour of COD MP without any problems.

Ok something seems borked with my miltiplayer.

Whenever i try to connect to either deathmatch or team deathmatch (which is all i have available thus far), it is not showing any available games.   Why can't i find any servers?   It always says no games available.   

Am i missing something here?

I never see any servers, it just drops me into a game or a game lobby.  I'm not at home right now, so I can't see the screen but do you have any special filters on?  Did you select Xbox Live as the MP option?

Whoa really?

They all say so in the post. It's not being offered in today's Fry's ad, but something like that wouldn't show up until Wednesday's ad anyway. I'll let you know once Wednesday rolls around.

Wow that's awesome!

Ok I played just about all weekend and this is my favorite MP game for the 360 by far.  I got to level 22 or 23 and have unlocked some good weapons and some neat challenges.  I'm using mainly an M4 build with the zoom scope and it works well.  I am working on getting the zoom scope for the MP5 and need 3 more kills to get it.  I like how that gun is more powerful, but the range is nowhere near as good as the MP4.  A few more levels and I get a new assault rifle and I'm sure I'll go with that.  I tried the M60 but it was not to my liking.

What perks are you guys going with? 

I have pretty much settled in on 3x special grenades with flash, extra bullet dmg, and extra bullet penetration. 

Someone had mentioned earlier that the extra penetration was good to take and I like blasting away at people through walls.  Martyrdom was good too, I got a few kills that way.  I also hate dying when someone is in last stand, but I didn't like it much myself.  I tried the claymore perk but I didn't like how it equips the claymore when you plant them.  Also seems like friendlies can trigger them.  I also tried the UAV jammer, but I think this only works during UAV scans and not all the time, otherwise it would be too good.

ok, i must be missing something here...so a little help would be appreciated.

i'm trying to play mp for the first time, but i'm not finding how to find games.   when i try xbox live, all i get is deathmatch/team deathmatch (which i know is all i have until i unlock others).  however, there are no servers listed.   am i missing something?  how do i see a list of all available servers?

You only get those two game types to start with.  As you rank up, more game types become available.  You never see any servers to choose from.  You select a game type and then click find game, then it just puts you into a game lobby (or directly into a game).

Hey all, I am wondering what's the best way to get involved with the GT XBL community.  I am a little apprehensive to start shooting people random friend invites on XBL. Are there a couple of ring leaders who routinely put games together that wouldn't mind a friend request?  Or do you all just invite everyone?  I've never played XBL with voice coms and I would like a good group of mature gamers to try with.  Any help for a noob is appreciated.

Thanks much!

Ok I played through a couple of SP missions and they were fun.  It's like being in a movie.  I felt that my team was doing too much though.  Esp on the intro mission.  Is that because I played on regular?

I played one MP match and it was awesome.  I got 10 kills, which was cool since I was worried about not being able to kill anything with no stat matching.  I found 3 different starter packs, so I don't understand why being stuck with the M16 sucks?  I took the pack with the MP5 and it seemed to be fully auto.  I shoot in bursts any way, so it didn't matter much.

I hope to get in some MP games with you guys.  I already like it more than Halo 3 MP.

They said that about Halo 3 and it turned out to be false.  However, why is it the customer's fault if they bought the game early?
