I’ve been having fun imagining this world where consoles are literally at war with eachother, and I think there’s opportunity for an ongoing thing here. It’s something I can picture visiting from time to time over the course of this upcoming console cycle, however I wouldn’t mind seeing it as a standalone project, either. If there are any artists out there that would be interested in collaborating on that, feel free to drop me a line with some of your work (tim [at] cad-comic.com) and I’ll take a look and we can go from there.
I skipped over Assassin’s Creed 3… the franchise started to die off for me a bit with Assassin’s Creed 2-point-whatever the fuck, and AC3 didn’t look compelling enough. I’ve heard enough poor comments about the game since that I’ve never regretted that decision.
It even felt like I was just going to be done with the whole franchise altogether, but dammit if this video of AC4 hasn’t turned my head just a bit. It’s a gorgeous looking game, no doubt, but something else about it appeals to me. Maybe the naval stuff, maybe the entire carribean atmosphere, I don’t know. But if it continues to look this good, I may be back on board with Assassin’s Creed.
