I feel almost exactly the same way, about both AC and especially The Division.

The AC Series has really grown to be one of my favorite series ever. And even as people have grown tired of the convoluted story arc and it's inconsistencies, I seem to have grown fonder of it, because I don't really care about that stuff even a little bit, and find the maps have been laid out better, the side missions more well thought out, the free running made more natural feeling, and even pirating.

Maybe when we get it we should try co-op together, because we probably would be similarly useless and playing at our own pace.

Everything from The Division looks awesome, but I haven't seen anything that makes me think I can even play it by myself.

Here's some Assassin's Creed info, and it clarifies some of the multiplayer questions that obviously popped up.

Cooperative Play

Perhaps the single biggest innovation in Unity is the introduction of four-player cooperative play throughout the campaign. What may not have been clear from Ubisoft’s early demos is how much this cooperative feature is entirely optional. Solo play is still a totally valid way to confront the game, but the option now exists to bring friends along if and when you want some company.

Here’s how it works. While wandering the world, you regularly enter taverns scattered around Paris. These taverns act as a social hub, and often have merchants from whom you can pick up new equipment. More importantly, if you have any friends currently playing Unity, you’ll see a “ghost” version of that player sitting about in the tavern. This indicates that player is out doing missions in their own instance of the game. You can approach their ghost and request to join their mission. If accepted, you are transitioned to their game and both of you reset to the most recent checkpoint, and continue on from there.

Up to four players can join together in this fashion. In your own game, you’ll always be Arno – the other players will look like random other members of your brotherhood. Lots of missions and activities are available for cooperative play, but there are some story missions that are set aside to be solo only.

From 10 things you should know about AC Unity:

I'm definitely sold on getting a wiiu after seeing that bit of zelda. Probably not for a while though. There's like a 1% chance it actually comes out on the listed 2015 release date too.
Nah. They've guaranteed it'll come out next year. They've had it slated for that since I think the console launched. Usually if it's a Nintendo studio game (and not Nintendo owned/partnered) they're right on the dot for release. Pikmin 3 was the first game I can remember in a long long time actually getting delayed.

Oh wow, that sounds a lot more seamless than I was thinking. Sounds like it has the potential to be a really cool online system.

I have to worry about buying a next gen console first, but yeah I would be down to try out co-op with you. I have the feeling our "co-op" gameplay would end up with us just splitting off to explore the map and periodically meeting up but that actually sounds like it could be a really cool use of the co-op feature.

AC looks dope. I missed out on the recent games with the ships. I need to get back into AC.

I'm not a battlefield gamer so BF4 was my first experience after COD Ghosts bombed. It wasn't bad but BF Hardline is intriguing because they went away from the usual military game. Cops n crooks idea is dope.

Fable Legends I'm pumped for.

About it for games. The Division yeah but for some reason I feel it'll be a let down.

So excited to see Uncharted, but nothing really was shown.
I'm really intrigued by Witched 3, even as a non-RPG fan. I think I will buy it. Also Project Beast looks intense, I'm definitely buying that. Other than that not much else looks that interesting. I'm getting UFC on Tuesday, pre-order it. Than going to buy TLoU and probably GTA 5 for PS4 and just the usual NBA/Madden/FIFA collection. Definitely not getting AC, never really liked it. I might get The Order; but as good as The Division looks, it's an online game so I won't be getting it. Rainbow Six gameplay looked sick tho, I freaking loved it.
