    Not news. Ubisoft said the same damn thing for Watch_Dogs and was pretty freaking obvious anyway

    Touché. Though I do think the game could use the extra time. Too little time between this and AC3

    So, basically, it's going to be the game equivalent of the gangly, awkward middle child. Not as adored as the younger sibling and not as accomplished as the older ones, it's just sorta there... existing.

    Hell, there's a perfect tagline for marketing. The Wii U: It's Just Sorta There.

    Call me, Nintendo. Let's make it happen.

    What's with the second screen, guys? Why are you barely using it? Well...it's just sorta there.
    So how's about them third party support? It's sorta there.
    What's keeping all the good nintendo first party line-up, then? Yeah...it's there. Sorta.

    Yup. I could see this work as a meme instantly... :P

    Who cares? The game is going to look good anyways.

    But even then, it's Assassin's Creed... people shouldn't care about this franchise anymore.

    Edit: Wait, I thought Ubisoft wasn't going to have anything else to do with Nintendo? Did they mean after they released this game or do they plan to release 3 more games for them and then abandon them?
    I was going to say something was similar to this statement; thanks for clarifying it.

    They are done with exclusives until the Wii U sales get better.
    Edit: Wow. I said this exact same comment in the Watch Dogs thread. :P

    They're trying to kill the Wii U by saying it's not as powerful as the Xbone and the PS4. And thus, is not part of this next generation of consoles. It's kind of like saying that the Wii was the in between console during the Playstation 2/Xbox 360 years.

    Well I didn't copy your comment from there and paste it in here. :)

    I'm not sure "trying to kill" is the correct term when what what they're stating is absolutely true.

    No, no, no, Guild - developers are not supposed to talk about the difficulties they face when developing games. They should only focus on what went "right".*





    *When it comes to Nintendo systems. Every other system can be openly scrutinized and criticized, that's the GBATemp way. :yay:

    I think he means the fact that the game is delayed, not the fact that it's "in-between generations".
