Learning Project Linker #6: Bashing Through Online….Again? Hours Spent 6 Hours

Image Detail

These days have been very tough on me due the unending homework that I have been having lately. I was like, nope, I’m gonna play Assassin’s Creed and “chilloot” for a while hahaha. What I found out was playing 6 hours straight can actually give strains to your eyes, mind, and body. I’m a gamer and I was always use to be exposed to video games for long period but that was years ago. Why? because Video games have evolve from sparingly awful graphics to high definition 3d game play and the expectations are very very high especially from the hit games such as Call of Duty, God of War, and Final Fantasy. I’m finally putting the hardest challenges that happen to me during the duration of this learning project.

The difficulties that I have experience was my Internet connection. If you’re internet connection sucks, don’t even attempt to play this game online, because lag issues will emerge all over the place and ruin your gameplay. Also, it will disconnect very often due to the technical difficulties that are presents in the game.

Another difficulty, was group isolation. this means that you can’t switch teams once a team of four formed a group. they will own and kill you every time, They will stun you repeated and escape most of your chase sequences, and they will rack up the most point and make you lose.

Lastly, The Final difficulty that I had was the trash talking in the lobbies. I don’t personally talk shit on my the lobbies and games but I shout when I win and what I find humiliating is that a lot of people talk shit at you with your proper consent  and reason. I dislike people who do that and proclaim themselves as bona fide “professional” players when they’re not.

Well, I over did it 27 hours and still counting ’cause I still have to finish the campaign mode and rock at it due to the experience I earned from multiplayer mode but, until then, You just have to wait lol. Peace out! for now that is lol

Thoughts on the Learning Project

At first, I was a little sceptical about this “Learning Project”, but this could be a very good learning experience. I was given approval by Dean Shareski himself to learn to play a video game that I am not good at. I chose Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood due to my sudden intrigue of its setting, Italia or Italy in English, the birth place of the Renaissance, and home of the of the most wonderful edifices such as the Roman Colosseum, not to mention Pizza lol. Just kidding.  This is the Catalyst where I am going to post my progress as I “Unravel” the mysteries and secrets of this video game.

Overview

Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood

Image via Wikipedia

Ah yes! my learning project. a game we call Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood. But not just yet! lol we need to see the review first to see if the game is worth playing.

What you need to know about the game:

Setting is in Rome, Italy. The “Boot” country and the home of pizza.

There are two Modes:  Story Mode and Multiplayer.

Story Mode starts where Assassin’s Creed 2 left. It is solely single player, so no jumping to another player’s story mode and killing the crap out of them. Thanks a lot Demon’s Souls.

Multiplayer is a mode where you play as the enemy and training as a modern day via Animus, where you “fill in” the shoes of your chosen player where you are given an assassination contract and pursue your enemy while at the same time being pursued by others. It’s a massacre alright

here is a video review of Ign to get us all started, IGN:. Now that it is out of the picture, here is the collect reception of the game from wikipedia.org:

Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood has been very well-received by critics. Aggregating review websites GameRankings and Metacritic gave the Xbox 360 version 90.59% and 89/100, the PlayStation 3 version 90.06% and 90/100 and the PC version 88.40% and 88/100. It won best Action Adventure game in the Spike TV Video Game Awards 2010The game has also been nominated for 7 British Academy Video Games Awards in 2011, including Best Game. It won an award in the Action category, losing to Mass Effect 2 in the category for Best Game.

The multiplayer was heralded by many at E3 2010, where it was showcased for the first time. GameTrailers lauded it as the Best Multiplayer Game of the show.The multiplayer portion of Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood was generally well-received by critics. Game Informer gave the Brotherhood a 9.25/10, commenting that the ability to raise a group of followers was a significant enhancement to the previous title’s gameplay, and praising the new multiplayer mode as something never before seen. The magazine’s review also gave very high marks to the graphics, sound effects and voice acting.

Eurogamer praised everything about Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood, giving it a 10/10, and particularly noted the maturity of the story: “One mission sees Ezio disrupting an assassination attempt in the ruins of the Roman Colosseum during a play about the death of Jesus Christ. It demands a developer of poise and compassion to wield such thorny concepts deftly, and it’s a measure of Ubisoft Montreal’s maturity that it is more than equal to the challenge…Brotherhood builds an intriguing mystery around compelling characters, surrounds them with collectibles and secrets, and encourages play – and nothing feels out of place.”

Reviews for the delayed PC version questioned the reason behind the delayed release date as the game was virtually unchanged from the console version albeit with better graphical enhancements and minor bonus content. However most praised Ubisoft‘s move to remove the DRM that marred the PC version of Assassin’s Creed II as well as include all DLC free of charge.
