The nerd erection that I have for this game has officially reached the medically serious point.

If it lasts for more than 4 hours, I recommend you consult with your physician immediately.  :-\

Unless, you are content with the situation. Then let the good times roll.  ;)

This game is looking fantastic. I think it's safe to call this game the best Assassin's Creed yet. Let's hope Assassin's Creed 3 only builds on this.

I think some of the stuff in the Project Legacy content on Facebook is giving pretty strong hints at a game (or at leats part of one) taking place in the Americas during the post-Columbus mess.

I really like Project Legacy; it adds a lot of backstory to the series. I'm hoping they do make a game take place during that time period. One rumor I've been hearing a lot has been a game taking place during the Revolutionary War. I hope that happens; I would like very much to see that.

So what do you think the relic in Revelations is going to be? I think it's clear that it will be a POE, but I wonder if it is something they have already introduced.

Spoiler (mouse over to reveal):

Besides, won't it be just epic to be able to use it in battle?

I'm assuming that Project Legacy explains what some of these Pieces of Eden are? I haven't gotten too far into it to really know all that much.

Ahh, I see. Sorry, I didn't want to spoil it for anybody, but the spoiler text can only hide so much.  :P

Yeah, Project Legacy will explain what the POEs are in detail. A lot of the Pieces are "related" to some old lore. For instance, the Shroud is supposed to be the Shroud of Turin that covered Jesus Christ. King Arthur had pulled the Sword from a stone and it helped him win his place on the throne (Hey, that rhymed). And apparently, Rasputin had used the Staff to gain favor with the people of Russia. I like how they link the Pieces to actual periods of history. It really creates a sense of immersion for the setting.

Indeed it does. I guess I have another reason to play Project Legacy again. I've been meaning to go back to it anyway.

There are a couple of annoying things about Project Legacy...

1. You can't 'restart' the game from scratch since its tied to a single facebook account, so if you want to check out alternative outcomes with Erudio (SP?) you can't.

2. You can't replay the various cutscenes, as far as I know.

3. I think there are a couple of things that are one time only, so if you somehow missed your chance, or didn't read all the text, you can't repeat the event again.
Well, ya, King's Quest is on Earth. Daventry is very old city from a long time ago. It's in ruins now and people aren't quite sure exactly where it used to be. There are some archaeologists searching through the ruins, they think they know its Daventry. But its somewhere on Earth."-Roberta Williams http://kingsquest.wikia.com/wiki/File:Daventryisearth.ogg

You can always look up Project Legacy on assassinscreed.wikia.com, and it will tell you all the different outcomes that you can have with the game. I saw all of Erudito's comments that he makes depending on your answers to the surveys, and I saw the entire chapter of Et Tu, Brute? (seeing as how I want to save up my Uplay points for something good). The best thing is, you can make your own personal choices, but still see "what could have been".

Here's some gameplay of Revelations from Gamescom. Warning: Ubisoft has been on a witch hunt to have all of these videos removed, so watch it while it lasts.

I must say, that gameplay footage looked rather amazing. I want this game even more now.

Yay!

Hmm I missed this. Apparently the cancelled AC: Lost Legacy for the 3DS was partially morphed into the Revelations.

Yup, it's pretty amazing. But if for any reason Ubisoft gets rid of this video on Youtube, there are tons of people who are trying to outdo them and I'll just link to a new video of the same thing. If Ubisoft isn't going to officially release the video, it's only right that the fans share the wealth. Here is an official video interview with Darby McDevitt explaining the demo video that you guys aren't supposed to see.  :P

Trying to cover leaked material up is kind of redundant in a lot of ways... I mean, it's not going to do anything. A quick google search will almost always find a copy of the video still in-tact. They should just stop trying to cover these kinds of leaks up.

I don't see why they would need to cover it up. The gameplay is amazing and it would get people even more excited for the title. They have nothing to be ashamed of. I understand why they would want to hold the rights to their title and not have other people releasing their videos, but why would they not release the video themselves? It's weird to try and lock up a masterpiece.

Hmm I missed this. Apparently the cancelled AC: Lost Legacy for the 3DS was partially morphed into the Revelations.

Well, that's good to know. One less reason to get a 3DS right away, and one more reason to get Revelations. Win win, I guess.

I understand to a degree why companies cover stuff up, but the fact remains that the damage has been done, so why not just come forward with it? especially for assassins creed; that gameplay footage was awesome.

as for lost legacy, I'm actually kind of glad that it morphed into revelations. also, I don't know if anyone has heard yet, but ubisoft announced that they're working on an assassins creed game for the vita. according to my sources (read: internet), the game will star new characters. in other words, a new assassin in a new time period. I'm now buying a vita, if only for assassins creed. I'm mad at myself for not playing it at e3 though; I waited for the rather underwhelming wii u instead. I think I made an error in judgement there.

Oh, I'm definitely getting a Vita, for sure. Not just for Assassin's Creed, but Uncharted, Resistance, and every other awesome title that will come out for it. But an Assassin's Creed that introduces a new ancestor? Sold!
