Glad for the info
I really cant wait for this game. Im very happy about the new setting. I think its keeping the series fresh.
That's not Jeff Cork...anyway, love the interview; it's really awesome.
Nice to meet you, Alex.
Ugh my computer wont load videos today...
I love these interviews with Creative Directors and any developers on the games.
Anyone else notice the person playing TF2 in the background? On a relavent note, this was a really cool video, and I am really excited for AC3. I like Alex because, like him, want to work in the video game industry, but can't make art, and am only decent at coding and mapping
Interesting interview, I like how he explains the process of refining a popular series and managing to keep things fresh without having to completely change what fans like.
I'm personally super-excited for the new setting and all of the new mechanics and systems. I can't even begin to imagine how free-running through trees will handle in comparison to what we're used to but I'm sure the folks over at Ubisoft will do the AC series proud again.
All i half to say is rock on this is going to be awsome espcially running through the trees assains style.
Guy playing TF2 in the background at 2:44. I see he's really working hard on AC3! Just kidding, but on a related note, great interview!
really great interview! I can't wait for this game!! I especially like the last topic in the interview where Alex said they hope to release "AC 3.5" as it were. Really shows that they have been working hard and want to put out a perfect 10 game for all the fans who have been waiting for it!
