So I recently came into about 102 spare bucks after selling the now archaic DSi (fucking Nintnedo) and so I'm going to be picking up some games. I actually considered picking up both of the last two Assassin Creed games due to the fact that I didn't the last two years. I have watched the cut-scenes for both games on YouTube so I'm pretty caught up, but I'm not really sure it's completely worth buying both.

Basically, I do look forward to single player experiences mostly because I've always loved Assassin's Creed's single-player, although I'm mostly interested in ACR for it's online portion as I haven't got any games I play actively online, currently.I'm also somewhat interested in picking up the recently released Street Fighter X Tekken, so I'm a little at odds; if I were to pick-up one of the two games which on should it be?

Honestly, I fully expect everyone to say Brotherhood as I've constantly heard it's the better game and based on a purely story basis from what I've seen I would probably be inclined to agree; especially considering that Revelations did hardly anything to really expand on Desmond's story at all

Actually, it did precisely nothing. Maybe I'm answering my own question? But, that's where the problem is--I suspect the online for Revelations has pretty much overcame the online for Brotherhood so I feel like that would be an entire portion of the game I would not get anything out of.

Any tips?

If you'd like to play some great multiplayer, pick Revelations. If you want a better story, pick Brotherhood (not a lot of us here really like either). Street Fighter X Tekken looks like a fun game all around.

Question: Which platform do you play on?

Yeah, honestly, I didn't like either from a story perspective when I watched them. They both felt slightly unnecessary especially after AC2 was so much of an improvement over the first game. I'm on PlayStation 3.

Also, from what I've seen, though they're more apparent, the Desmond sections in ACB also seemed lacking. Given, they were there. Is that really the only advantage it had in that area? I mean obviously the ending of ACB with Lucy comes off as a big-turn in story, but I pretty much know that happens, so what's the point?

Also, a single-player related question; does the Brotherhood system in ACB return in Revelations and is it basically the same? I believe it does because Yarsuf (or whatever) asks Ezio to do some recruiting during the story sections.

Yeah, it's basically the same. The recruitment is more story-focused, though. Instead of defending some civilians and have them join your cause, you might help them become a better pickpocket or take on a challenge for them.

I have the impression that the Smoke Bomb is OverPowered. It is way too versatile and also very powerful. One thing that hints to how OP it is is the amount of people who use it. Almost everyone uses the damn thing. So, based on these impressions of mine, I kinda hope Ubi is gonna nerf the Smoke Bomb for AC III.

What do you guys think?

PS: Using the Smoke Bomb is harder than it seems (at least it was to me). And it CAN be countered (though it requires a high degree of specificity, while the Smoke Bomb is ver versatile).

AC3 has surprised me greatly!

It is overpowered, but so is the hidden gun and Mute. SB is just easiest and most effective to use. It's probably the best ability, because it can be used offensively and defensively at the same time. I heard it's still in AC3, but I don't really have a source on that other than common sense. There's no reason they'd take it out.

I use it pretty often and I agree it gets annoying being the victim of it, but I'm honestly more annoyed when there are players running across rooftops with just a gun and knives.

Hutch said that Conner doesn't use/craft bombs, that was Ezio's thing. So that's a reason to take it out.

But we're talking about multiplayer. It was a popular ability in the other games. They'll either replace it with something that is used the exact same way or improve upon it.
