“Assassins Creed 4 Black Flag” is the game that “Assassins Creed 3” should have been. Ubisoft entertainment has out done themselves for this new “Assassins Creed” title. AC4 (Assassins Creed 4) takes place in the world of pirates. Who wouldn’t want to plunder a ship with a crew, and take whatever they want. Not to forget the beautify scenery in the Caribbean while taking command of a ship.
Right in the golden age of pirates’ protagonist Edward Kenway goes on the adventure of a life time doing what he does best, and that is whatever he wants. While playing the game players will experience events recorded in history in the golden age of pirates. Historical figures like Black Beard, and James the Kid appear a counts amount of times playing in Mr. Kenway’s adventure. He stumbles in to problems along his journey were he finds himself-asking the question what is the point of enjoying yourself when it has no long term affect for the future. The story in this game is extremely well written with a memorable protagonist.
The game plays the smoothest out of any of the other Assassins Creed games. Switching between target to target taking out the enemy has never been easier in hand to hand combat. Keeping that in mind it makes the game feel a little repetitive, but that is only one mechanic of the game. Digging deeper inside the game the player will soon realize that there is counts amount of things to do in this open world. Going from playing checkers to harpooning a white whale, and everything in between. That is where the game stand out in its individuality. AC4 makes the sea look and feel like the real thing. Sailing in calm water can change any second into a thunder storm with wind pushing the ship that Kenway commands from side to side. From that the player have to navigate their ship though the rough sea with water spouts around every corner.
With next gen graphics AC4 is just amazing to just explore the world. Observing the sun in the game could actually hurts someone’s eyes. Viewing a plan empty field AC4 is much more then it could seem. The wind interacts with everything causing the grass, and leafs to move in certain directions or watching a storm in the distances blow the player’s way. It is all of the small details in this video game which makes it stand out.
Over all this is one of the best games of last year to make it to the next gen consoles. It has action, adventure, and drama all in the right places. If you are looking for a good game to start while testing next gen graphics on a new console Assassins Creed 4 Black Flag is the game for you.
Mostly everyone knows that Bungie created the “Halo series”. Currently they have been working on a game called “Destiny” witch like “Halo” is a sci-fi. I’ve seen a lot of videos of Destiny and I got to say it has a lot to live up to. I think it looks beautiful, but at the same time it reminds me of halo. The developers really wrap their heads together to form this idea of a massive multiplayer game. One of the coolest things I notice about the game was how easy it was to join people while playing. Something interesting they did was have classes for the characters people create like stealth, tank, etc. I would prefer to use the tank class because it is harder to take down. The game comes out early next year, and I will probably end up getting it just out of respect from the “Halo” games.
I went out with a buddy of to go get the Xbox One at mid night. I got to say that it was heavy, did not expect that. First thing I did when I opened the box was hold the controller. It was really light, and it felt perfect with my hands. That kept me entertained while waiting for the update get done. When all things were done with the update my friend had to set all of his setting for the Xbox. We had a problem installing a game. When we would try to install it, it would just stay at 0%, and would not move. To fix the problem we turned the internet off, and it started installing. Took forever to install, but we got to download the campaign first which did not take long. Battle field 4 looked beautiful, and it just played so smooth on the Xbox one. I liked it, and I can’t wait to get one myself. With every new release there are hiccups, you just have to wait it out.
I have been playing COD for about five years now. It is kind of a norm to expect a new call of duty every year. I have nothing bad to say about the game, but I do not think that I am going to get it this year. It is kind of getting boring, just because I play it so much. My friend tells me it’s a copy and paste game which means that they copy the last game that was made and added a little more to it. I do not agree with him that much because you can only do so much with a first person shooter. The people that say they hate the game are dumb because they don’t stop playing it. The game is all around fun, but I just played it too much. That does not mean that I will not get it later, but as of right now I’m not.
It was announced at the GameStop Expo that all store managers will be getting a PS4 plus seven games on the release date. I think that it is a very smart move for Sony to do this. If customers come in asking question about the new system, they are more likely to have an answer for them now. It is said that all 4,400 GameStop managers are going to get hands on training for the PS4 and Xbox One. That being said I think that it was a good idea on PS4’s part because when you would ask a GameStop employee what console they recommend they will probably lean towards the PS4 because it is something they have, and something they are use to. The seven games that GameStop managers are going to get are Killzon: Shadow Fall, NBA 2K14, Madden NFL 25, FIFA 14, Need for Speed; Rivals, Battlefield 4. The managers are also getting Beyound: Two Souls, but that’s only for the PS3. Now that sounds like a good selection of games, but I can’t say that for all of them, because the only game I would probably get is Battlefield 4. Only because I played battlefield 3, and that game is beautiful on PS3. Its not a for sure thing if the GameStop managers are also going to get a Xbox One, but that is something that Xbox should do just for marketing reasons. Witch I think they probably will because Xbox has been listening to the community on changing the features for the Xbox One and that’s just goes to show they have a open mined. I’ve always seen my self as an Xbox person, but being thin on money I am going to go for the PS4 only because of the price. In my opinion they are both amazing game systems.
