    Default ASIII: Black Flag

    I meant ACIII >.>

    It's pretty awesome. Decided to pick it up the other night while I was in town and got some nostalgia while passing a Family Video (It's been a few years since I actually went into a store to rent something). I like the free-form gameplay a lot, especially the water-based aspect of it. The fleet/upgrading stuff is awesome, too.

    I wish there was a naval MMO similar to the gameplay in black flag.

    I came here expecting there was a typo. Sadly the was no ASCII version of Assassin's Creed Black Flag.

    But OnT: I agree with you and have stated before that Black Flag has set the standards for new naval based games. Hopefully it will be their WoW and hopefully well see a decent Pirate MMO soon.

    i think you'll find that assflag is aciv.

    i think it's overrated. the last good ac game was assrev.

    the naval combat is overly silly and arcadey. the closest to a realistic modern tall ships n' pirates game that we have is the naval portion of Empire Total War, which you can mod so that you can play as the pirate faction.

    Maybe it's because I only played vanilla empire total war, but I think the naval combat in that game was a lot more arcade-y than in Black Flag. In Black flag, you control a single ship, have multiple types of ammo, have to worry about ship damage, have multiple damage boxes (hull, which causes the ship to sink if damaged enough and sail, which will incapacitate or slow the ship). There's boarding, you can sneak across the water and assassinate everyone on a ship and then take it, you can sit on the side of your ship and headshot the captain of the enemy ship, etc... There's resource and trading (although in a basic form). There's also weather and the sea to contend with. Harsh side winds, rogue waves, water spouts, etc... Also, the normal waves will batter your ship, knocking you off course requiring course correction. Plus there's the shanties.

    Heck, there's weapon arcs for the ammo the the waves can act as natural shields.

    Maybe with mods it's closer, but it's ETW that felt arcady compared to black flag (although that's mostly because the game is an RTS).

    I hated that sale. I bought my second 660TI a week before they started giving the game with the cards...
