The lights are on
Assassin's Creed III isn't the only entry in Ubisoft's juggernaut franchise to release this week. People may not be talking about it as much, but Assassin's Creed III: Liberation came out on Vita, attempting to provide the full Assassin's Creed experience in a smaller package. Join me, Jeff Cork, and Kyle Hilliard as we stumble through Revolution-era New Orleans as Aveline.
Apologies in advance for the video and sound from the game. Our abilities to capture footage from Vita are currently...not ideal. Hope you enjoy the episode anyway!

I'm having a blast with this.
I love this game
I think if I had a Vita, I'd get this regardless of the flaws. Good job, Kyle, for only dying once!
Looks really cool. I wish I had a Vita.
Boy, do I really enjoy how many Test Chambers there are. I get to see gameplay of all the games while listening to my favorite editors!
Remember back when the PS3 was new and almost every game for it had some SIXAXIS gimmick that barely worked and blocked your progress until you completed it? I sort of feel that the Vita is going through that now, with every game having to feature a gimmick related to each of the special features of the system. Hopefully, like with the PS3, the games will eventually move away from that and not forcing unnecessary gimmicks into the games, and all of the games worth playing from those dark early days gets patched with the option to use normal controls instead.
I was looking for the Unregistered Hypercam tag but couldn't find it.
Also, nice insta-suicide.
I just bought Liberation a couple hours ago and played it for about an hour and the game feels nice, just like a full fledge AC game. If you have a Vita or plan on getting one and am a fan of AC this game is a definite buy.
i love this game! haha
Good. I've wanted to see this in action.
The music reminds me a lot of Halo's. In fact, at one point, I thought Halo 4 was being played in the background.
After AC Revelations, I don't want to play another average Assassin's Creed game. It looks better than I was expecting, but not amazing. I'm glad you guys made the test chamber so I know for sure now about it.
I'm excited I'll finally get to play AC3 later today.
I hate it when they throw in stupid features to showcase 'What the Vita can do!" It was like when the DS came out and every game shoehorned in touch screen this and that. Still, it's part of the growing pains of the system, and once people get it in their heads that they don't have to use every feature, the games will get better. Currently, I own this game, but haven't started because I made the mistake of putting in Need For Speed: Most Wanted first, and that's also a good game for Vita. It feels like Burnout had a baby with Need For Speed. Also got Ragnarok, but then there's going to be Persona 4 the Golden and Sonic and Sega All-Stars Racing Transformed, ann Playstation All-Stars Battle Royale and Ratchet and Clank: Full Frontal Assault... man, I hate this time of year because they cram in so much gaming goodness, i can't possibly play it all! But I sure do have fun trying.
