Then go and play AC1 again?
As much as I love Altair, I'd rather not have to endure that game ever again.

They laughed at me when I said Brotherhood and Revelations were bad signs.

Who's laughing now?

I love how up their own ass the gaming community has become. A game series releases a yearly game and that is INSTANTLY a bad thing. Assassin's Creed is a series (one of few if not the only) that I feel has been doing it right. Each game does some new things and if they don't work they aren't used again.

I don't think that the Assassin's Creed games are doing new things, and I don't think that they're bad games for it either. Played the first one - great, original game. Played the second one - new times, locales and technology gave the series a fresh, innovative coat of paint, even if it does hold your hand the whole time. Played Brotherhood - 2 in Rome. Nothing new. Shortly thereafter, Revelations was released, promising even more Ezio. The last game I played (aside from the pretty good but samey Vita title, Liberations) was Brotherhood, and the series still hasn't won me back. It takes a lot of work to make the iconic hooded figure of the series into something generic.

They've done a couple of new things with each game and of course they have to, but it's never anything drastic. From the first game to the second, that's when they actually turned it around.

Brotherhood was a *bleep*ing great game though, and did actually took it further and made up for many things ac2 lacked. Revelations on the other hand was a total failure. I still think the 'assassin' bit should be put focus on again. Make it darker, scarier, more difficult, more realistic, etc.That's the beauty of the series for me.

For the first time in my life, I'm not getting an AC game on the day it releases.

AC3 was a major dissapointment, and frankly, Ubisoft needs to stop milking the yearly cow and take it slow.

Wasn't Assassin's Creed 3 in development for over 3 years? How much slower should they go lol? I still don't get why so many people were let down by it. I loved it and loved the fact that it advanced the future plotline.

It's not a bad thing. Brotherhood was a worthy sequel to AC2 in my eyes. Revelations I actually did enjoy (particularly the 3-fold story), but was too damn familiar! And AC3... well... AC3 made Revelations look like a masterpiece. They've added and added and added content year after year and all these features just over-complicate and water down the experience.

It had been in development for 3 years yes, and it was (as many fans will agree) a weaker game than the yearly released Ezio-sequels. It makes little sense, and I really wonder if AC3 was in development for that long. Did they work on it with a team of 5 people for the first two of those years?? If they went slow and released AC3, then I want them to go back to making games yearly! Give me another Brotherhood any day!

The fact that it advanced the plot-line is EXACTLY what pisses me off. It should have been a clear cut ending, wrapping up the WHOLE story. It just felt weak, pasted on and begging the consumer-base to purchase next year's installment. The plot wasn't a self-contained story (forgivable, seeing as games work in series' nowadays) but it leaves so much to be explained by it's successor. There's a thin line between an AC fan and a cog in Ubisoft's cash-cow.

I'll wait for Assassins Creed V since this year I'll be to broke getting an iPhone 5S and the 6S in 2015.

So where do I double down my pre-order on the ACV Season Pass?

Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag is planned for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC.
Not the Wii U?
It's going to be on the PS4 so, yeah, it could be on the Wii-U too.
