Nice. I debated on making an official thread, even though there's so much info on the 'Character Leaked' thread.

That was my thought too until OP made this, I like the idea of an Official thread even though it doesn't matter haha
I am so excited for this game. Myself and two of my roommates are all getting this on launch day for Xbox 360.

PS3-exclusive DLC spans four missions to expose Benedict Arnold.

My feeling is that [spoiler]Arnold may actually be an assassin himself working against the Templars in power in both the US and British forces[/spoiler].

They better release some free 360-exclusive DLC in the near future to compensate for the PS3 DLC.

AC tends to favor PS3 (Brotherhood had exclusive DLC [Copernicus Conspiracy], Revelations had the original AC on disc). Copernicus Conspiracy was nothing major, just a few side missions that didn't affect the story.

Is the PS3 DLC free or paid? Because if PS3 users have to pay for the PS3 DLC I don't know why anyone would expect the 360 to get free DLC.



As one might be able to tell from my avatar, I am very much looking forward to both ACIII & Liberation on the VIta :cool:

IGN fan boy reviews.
Gamed reviews on Metacritic

Sounds like to me you've already got it in your head to dislike the game (though I could be wrong?)

Quoting 'fanboys' on the user reviews made it sound like anyone giving it a good review is simply a fanboy. What if the user reviews were trashing it? What's the point of user reviews at all if they're just discounted as fanboy drivel?

As a note, I'm neutral on the AC series and am waiting for more reviews before I make a purchase decision. Just wondering why people discount user reviews so fervently (I know there are a lot of trolls on Metacritic, but they're generally on MMO or Sports games.).

Another note... I run a site similar in spirit to IGN, that allows registered user reviews. How would you suggest I go about making user reviews more credible? I'm really interested in this subject.

Have you read any of the user reviews?
Here's a good example:
"[color=#333333][font=georgia, serif][size=2]AC3 is a all new AC Experience, it has a Read Dead Redemption feeling and the best things that you love on AC series. You watch the trailers, demos and theres no surprise, it is amazing like you saw by Ubisoft. Maybe GOTY 2012."[/size][/font][/color]
