I feel like theres always a thread for a new popular game, where the eff is AC3's??? Here! Remembers


So last night I finished the main missions and watched the final cut scene. What did everyone else think?

As most Assassins Creed ending it left me thinking wtf. Normally, I'm cool with that, but this was suppose to be it. I really think the story started to get lazy. Unless I'm missing something it seems that "the ones who came before" left us a trail of bread crumbs to find a way to stop the world from ending. However, Minerva shows up and is like well we didnt know this bitch Juno was going to use it against us so........let the world end or else she'll enslave the world. and where the hell was Jupiter?

I do find it odd that Desmond picked to save her. Assassins fight the Templars who want to control the world and they just released some kind of powerful being whose going to be a lot harder to defeat. Also Minerva even said we wouldn't all die, but we would just have to rebuild. That seems like a better option. The Templar dead and the Assassins are in charge. Freedom would be achievable. I guess this means.........

Assassins Creed 4 coming 11.12.13

I have no idea whats going on now after seeing the ending. I wish they would just take the whole present day Desmond-Animus stuff out and just focus on Assassins through out history.

well this is disappointing

Yeah it seems this game didn't get much love here. That's too bad because I loved it.

It was all about the greater good. If Desmond didn't touch the pedestal, eventually a new order of Templars would rise.

Desmond believed in saving the world. Even if Juno was in control, an Assassin would prevail in taking her down

Assassin's Creed games are the kings of anticlimactic endings. Blue-balls for days

"That seems like a better option"

You realize civilization would have been decimated. 99% of the population gone. It's not like some minor event where maybe you lose a couple thousand people. It meant there would only be a couple thousand left.

It was really a choice between 2 evils. You either save the Earth and risk being enslaved by some mysterious Mass Effect 3 style apparition or you let humanity be destroyed and after hundreds of years of rebuilding let them fall under the control of the new "Templars" because after "Jesus" Desmond's death in Minerva's vision it showed people manipulating his gospel to fit their own beliefs.

I think Desmond's was the better choice because you'd still have a chance at defeating Minerva. Or Juno. Whichever one he sided with.

But really, each ending results in humanity being enslaved in some fashion, whether literally by Juno or in the form of religion as shown in Minerva's explanation.

I was confused...but I play for the historical stories 1st and the nonsensical future earth destruction story 2nd. Alhough, the last Desmond mission was pretty awesome.

*Edit - I think Ubisoft explained AC3 is the end of Desmond. No way they'd completely shut down the franchise.

but then the issue becomes, are we fighting the Templars or are we fighting for Freedom?

Also, if Desmond is optimistic enough to think that humanity can overthrow their creators, why isnt it possible that we not develop the Templar order?

And think about this. Suppose we overthrow Juno, then isn't it possible that the Templars come back after?

Either way life sucks I suppose, but I mean that world is so corrupt that it wouldn't be terrible if they got the chance to start over again. Yea it sucks that 99% of humanity will die, but we all die one day. And whose to say Juno won't execute those who oppose her? Could be some serious deaths caused in her rise to power. Also this bitch seems to hate humans. Did you read those emails she sent Desmond? lol

Yeah, she was messed up. 1st Civ hated humans (used them as slaves) and only bred with them to ensure their DNA's survival as they were going to survive the 1st flare since their numbers were greater.

The way I see it (thinking ahead to AC4) a big theme of AC3 was working together with the Templars, both Desmond and Connor mention it to the father/Achilles and Connor actually does work Haytham. I think AC4 is going to be about Assassin's and Templars trying to work together to overcome this new, powerful threat.

It was the lesser of two evils, Desmond's decision.

How good is this game ? That one review I posted int he VGF was a AC lifer even worked on AC2 Brotherhood and he gave it a measly 6/10. It looks like the coolest one to me Rev War sounds like a great theme/time period, but I've only played the 1st one.

I think the game is great. GOTY material for sure.

In reply to an earlier post on Nov 12, 2012 2:10:13 PM PST
Thats a good point about working together.

This is a great game, I don't think its quite GOTY, I still give the nod to ME3

In reply to an earlier post on Nov 12, 2012 2:17:48 PM PST
Bobbum Man says:
It's GOTY for me for sure. Both had serious WTF endings but luckily I was expecting that with Creed and not so much with ME3.

Interesting thought - Shaun mentions taking the Animus back to the time of the 1st Civ. I think it would be awesome to have a new protagonist in the modern day have to travel to an ancestor in the 1st Civ time period to try and find a way to defeat Juno.
