So, for the lot of you seeing this because of the drawing school group I joined, sorry. I don't make art very often, if that wasn't immediately obvious. So! If you can't see this because of the group, don't comment, ok? Ok.
On to business.
Don't get me wrong, AC: III is a great game, story-wise. I've decided that nothing else will get done until I see the story through to it's end. This means that I've decided to neglect nearly everything else about the game.
Except Connor (Main Protag).
Screw that guy.
Seriously. I don't know about you guys, but if someone trains me to become an assassin, I'll at least stop and say thanks every once in a while... I've really grown to dislike him. Like, I *really* don't like him. He strikes me as one of those guys who seem like pricks without trying. I mean, can you talk to a commanding officer like that? Is that even legal?!
Connor aside, I've still got a problem with the visuals. At some point in the game, you have to ride across the countryside, and knock on people's doors. In my case, the same guy answered the door. Every time.
EVERY time. Didn't even bother changing his outfit, the smug fool. Nope! It was almost like he was saying: "Let me just pop into my portal here, and answer the door again. We're really gonna screw around with this guy!"
I bet that's what he was thinking... And then his buddies have a good laugh. At my expense. Moving along.
Another mission in the game involved a cinematic (surprise, surprise) panning over the small regiment of Continental Army soldiers. It would have been an impressive shot, had the army not consisted of the same guy.
You read right: the Continental Army was fought by the same guy, in the same outfit. Absolutely no variation. I can't talk about this anymore.
The segments that were outstanding were the naval sequences. I had a blast, and you'd be hard pressed to find something wrong with them. I couldn't, at any rate. The ship handled like I guessed a ship would handle like. I've never captained one, so I could be wrong. I'll be damned if it wasn't satisfying to unleash a barrage of cannonballs at an enemy ship, and watching them burn. Man, that was fun!
So, it really was good... It's just that visual problems started to detract from my experience...
I'll update later...
Oh, Desmond: I guess he's cool?
