Hey guys, once you get the mark from the bureau do you lose the ability to finish any remaining investigations?  I completed two investigations before I talked to the bureau and he gave me the mark and now I can't find anything but citizens being roughed up and view points to get.  crybaby

i've always made sure to do all the investigations first, but that would make sense.  once you go to the bureau for permission, you're essentially saying that you have all the necessary information to carry out your task.  from that point, you only goal is to kill your mark and escape.

Yeah that ended up being it.  I am worried I just screwed myself on an achievement now.

This is what drives me nuts about Xbox Live.  You would have NO idea about these free downloads (packs, XBLA, content, etc) unless you see some obscure web posting or see it here.  Why isn't Live smart enough to scream at you when a free pack is available for download?

well, actually the game does flash on the main menu about DLC  icon_lol

Yeah I thought I saw an add for this on one of the blades?

Jcc when you first throw all your blades, it tells you to pickpocket thugs to get more.  Maybe you missed it if the UI was off.

Ok I just did my second assassination and it was the first one in Jerusalem.

Spoiler for Hiden:
I had no idea it was scripted to not be stealthy and I was annoyed I couldn't sneak up on him.  None-the-less, I caught up to him and jump stabbed him in the neck for some payback.  Onward to Acre!

How are you guys dealing with the citizens that are getting roughed up.  It seems like if I target a guard, even if I am miles away, they attack me after a few seconds.  Do you guys get real close and BAM-right in the kisser???

Just starting this.
I like it so far, but have a question.
I'm heading to the tower after the first botched assassination attempt.
Along the way, some of the characters have a "glow" around them.
What does that mean?

The glow has something to do with the type of NPC it is.  In the training session it tells you what white means, vs blue, red, or yellow.   I honestly can't remember now frown

those damn guards and their speed limits!!!  icon_mad

I finished Jerusalem (2nd kill) last night and was heading to Acre before calling it a night. I was like "screw the speed limit" so I just galloped full tilt from waypoint to waypoint purposefully reigning chaos on civilians and just killing any guards around when I stopped to do the waypoint. Not exactly stealthily keeping the Creed a secret, but quite a bit of fun! smile

About the guards in the Kingdom...is that why they attack you; because you are not using the blend button when on the horse?  I wondered why when I first went in there they attacked me on sight.

if you move past them on horseback at any pace faster than your blend pace they'll come after you.  it's profiling I tell you!

Damn guards!!  /shakes fist

My single gripe thus far is the fact that you can't lean around corners, it would be a useful feature in so many situations, no idea why it wasn't implemented.

That would probably break the game.  The game is designed to force you to reach checkpoints or face infinite enemies.  But a cover system encourages camping.  I don't think infinite respawns + camping work well together.  I also wish they had finite spawn and a cover system like Vegas.

It took me a bit to figure that out, that they will just keep sending enemies at you until you move.  I don't really like that either.

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?
11456  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Assassin's Creed Reviews on: November 16, 2007, 03:24:49 PM
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).

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.

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.

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?

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.

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!
