I got one Assassin to call on, but he only works in the cities? I keep forgetting about him actually. I really liked having squads to call upon.
You have to liberate parts of the 2 cities to get more, right now i have 3...
They don't dress as Assassins though, they keep their regular clothes on...
Now you can use them to actually help you fight through a tough battle by using the bodyguard command.

Re: Assassin's Creed III



BTW how do people feel about the juxtaposition of the extreme historical accuracy with the crazy story of pre-historical technologically advanced god-like humans? I like it! It's what made the story so incredibly interesting to me when we learned about it in AC2.

Re: Assassin's Creed III

I am taking my sweet time with this game. I unfortunately find myself having a similar opinion to Mr Light in that I really don't care all that much about the American Revolution setting, and honestly, I find Connor to be an incredibly dull protagonist. In the last series of games I was interested in the story, and I enjoyed seeing Ezio grow as a person. Now, I'm far more interested in seeing how Desmond's story wraps up in the present than I am in any of Connor's adventures in colonial America.

I still enjoy the gameplay, but the story just is not as engaging as the previous installments.

Yeah Ezio was a cool character and I enjoyed his story. I didn't care very much about Altair either. The Desmond story meanwhile I was very interested in, I couldn't wait to find out how the end of the world story got resolved!

Yeah I finished the game over a week ago and I just didn't enjoy it as much as AC2, AC:B or AC:R. Connor just isn't as interesting as Azio, the same goes for Boston and NY. The only thing that I loved about the game were the naval battles, those were awesome.

I didn't have a whole lot of feeling about Altair one way or another, but at least his and Ezio's stories tied together. "Revelations" managed to wrap up both Altair and Ezio's stories; I would have liked it better if that game had also wrapped up Desmond's story. This tale of Connor just feels kind of tacked on.

Re: Assassin's Creed III

I actually like Connor's story...
And the juxtaposition of Ezio's jovial and Connor's stoic characters is a bit refreshing...
The Homestead missions add a lot to the game as well...

Re: Assassin's Creed III

I didn't even do Homestead missions what was that? I only did the primary story missions since I wasn't enjoying myself.

Oh I did do the naval missions after I beat the game. Those actually were enjoyable. A nice add-on to the game unlike that godawful tower defense mini-game from AC:R

They expand your homestead, they are small missions where you get other people to move to your homestead and turn it into a small village, some of them even create upgrades for Connor, like bigger pouches but most of them create items you can sell with a trade route...
The first one is the guy you save hanging from the cliff...
They appear in every area, then after every main mission some of them have a next step in their story...

There are many Homestead Missions in Assassin's Creed III. Each one focuses on one of the many Characters who join you at the Davenport Homestead. The purpose of these missions is to recruit characters who can improve the home of Achilles Davenport and provide useful shops and craft items for Connor. They are signified on the map by a diamond-shaped icon that resembles your homestead.
Many of these missions show up around the Davenport Homestead area, but some are found in Boston, New York, or the Frontier. I recommend Synchronising EVERYTHING that you can possibly Synchronise. This will mean that the Homestead missions, as well as others, will show up on the map.

There are 2 different types of residents you can have on your Homestead: Artisans, and Providers. Artisans are used to craft items made from supplies purchased by Connor from the Providers. Both Artisans and Providers can be levelled up through secondary homestead missions. Levelling up an Artisan allows them to craft more complex items for Connor, while levelling up a Provider allows Connor to buy a greater variety of items from them.

Re: Assassin's Creed III

Started playing this yesterday as it finally came out for PC... Yeah, the Colonial America setting is every bit as bland and underwhelming as I was expecting. I think I spent a good 20 minutes trying to master one of the board games on the ship before I told myself "Dude, this is an Assassin's Creed game. Stop this and go kill some shit." Still playing as Connor's dad, and is it just me, or does he vaguely remind anyone else of Roger Moore? Seeing Boston during different seasons sort of reminded me of Mafia II. And I was rather impressed how you leave trails through the snow out in the countryside. Probably the most realistic handling of snow I've seen in a game. Am I able to find any more almanac pages at this point or just the four Franklin told me about?

Re: Assassin's Creed III

Good game. Honestly, I think they rushed out a release because the Mayan prophecy is a major plot point and they wanted to release it before 12/21/12. It wasn't ready for release, I've logged about 4 hours and I've seen a character talking without moving his mouth in a main plot sequence and enemies standing on air. But if they released it after 12/21/12 the world ending story would just seem silly.

The Colonial America setting works, but it'd be nice if every alley in the city didn't look identical. The combat is fun but it'd be nice if they didn't just kinda copy the only thing about Arkham City I didn't like. So, yeah, it's a good game, but not one it's easy to be excited about playign.

Re: Assassin's Creed III

Still putzing away at this. I honestly can't play for more than 20-30 minutes without getting bored with the story. I just arrived in New York and am "mobile eavesdropping" on some money counterfeiter. I was "detected" three times and had to start over, so I turned the game off out of annoyance. Some of these missions just aren't any fun.
