    Companies are like high school/college popular girls - imitating what the hottest ones currently wear and do. And currently in for Ubisoft relevant market playground two hottest girls are Netflix (almost direct comparison made in video) and CD Projekt. No wonder Ubi is buying attention by trying to act like them. For better or worse...

    Should be, apparently isn't only that. I know what is Ubisoft pass though. You can buy them cheap from me. It gives you lifetime pass on everything with Ubisoft's logo on it. Saves bunch of money and even more time. And will cost you mere 9,69 $.

    Real best deal!

    Oh look, it's the same Riposte 2 Win gameplay ever AssCreed has.

    As a Greek person, i always cringe when popular media are attempting to portray ancient Greece. They get it so wrong, 99% of the time... Greek history is so freaking rich it is a huge surprise to me why it hasn't been exploited more by the gaming industry. Yet, when they do it, instead of being accurate they just copy a retarded movie based on a retarded comic book...

    Ubi seems to be putting in at least some effort though. The visuals seem pretty on point and they made it a point to hire as many greeks for VA as possible.

    I watched the preview from a French Youtuber. In fact, this AC would have more RPG mechanism and more C/C than TW3. I'm very glad that Ubisoft is replacing Bioware in AAA RPGs.

    And you can meet Stantor, so GOTY.

    After watching this youtube commentary I am deeply saddened by the fact the creators of this game went a long way not to show any sign of ancient Greek sexism. A pity because it will completely break the immersion, despite all the effort they put into recreating the cities or finding proper, Greek-sounding voice actors.

    I will have to play Alexios not Kassandra (whom I really wanted to try) because I want to exprience ancient Greece and not some Disney style egalitarian fairy tale.
