It's a real adjustment for me Dx I can't seem to get Grasp down... ya know where you can reach out and grab anything around you, so if your falling and go past a ledge you can reach to your left and grab it, instead of just hitting the street? Yeah, I'm probably guna enjoy the whole game without that. Yay.
Also, the plot in AC seems to get worse with each game x.x the conspiracy stuff is even harder to believe then The Reptilian Agenda, since it plays it so straight faced, (
Seriously, The Templars started the modern world to create supply and demand? They made countries like America to make customers? Yeah, right...
) and pretty much everything to do with the Desmond plotline is just... ugh... where do I begin?
Okay, for starters... Why does Desmond need to be an Assassin? Thats actually pretty much going against the Assassins. Yeah, that sounds weird, but Assassins aren't guys with extending blades, their upholders of free will and change their weapons, tactics, every detail of their organization when and where its needed to uphold their cause. Back then, a parkour killer with concealable weapons is perfect. When times changed and that kind of Assassin wasn't as effective, they changed. Now, we're in a time period with highly advanced security systems, where the average Abstergo building would be air tight, impossible to breach covertly, and you'd be met with armed resistance. Somehow, a guy who can climb with a pop-up knife doesn't sound very helpful, but their making it sound like its 'their only chance'.
I'll forget that 2012 bullshit they pulled at the end of AC2... that was just lazy writing at its best, they just gave up and copy pasted the Wiki page for '2012 theory' into the credits and called it a day. That I can ignore if they actually develope it further, but what came next cannot be fixed, it is pure retardation.
Okay, so, after beating down Abstergo goons, who use batons instead of guns, and only thought to send in a single group, they manage to simply drive away in a white van. Yep, just drive away. They just leave. That building was surrounded... it had to be. Abstergo knew they were there and already breached, if they had had one chopper in the air, then a friggen van CANNOT ESCAPE. But this is made even sillier with what comes next...
Guess whats nearby? The Villa. Yup. Ezio's Villa is within driving distance. Ya know, the place that housed a great Assassin and may well hold clues as to the hiding place of a Peace of Eden. It also has tunnels, which protects them from Cell Towers. Yes, Cell Towers, that means that Abstergo is practically omnipresent, and it knows where you are and whats in your pockets unless your buried under a few dozen feet of rock and dirt.
The fact this place is nearby is enough to warrant checking it out, but this is AN ASSASSINS HOME, that may have a PEACE OF EDEN, and there are ASSASSINS hiding somewhere in the general area. There is no fucking way that a van can just slink away to such a retarded hiding place and not get caught.
Seriously, this is like stealing money from your mums purse and then, in full view of her, running outside and climbing up a tree and seriously thinking you've gotten away...
