Very very very very tempting.

But I'm SO backlogged with games right now, by the time I catch up it will probably be that price anyway.

I've been playing the shit out of this.

As an Assassin's Creed game, it's okay. I've only played AC2, and it was fun but awfully repetitive to the point of getting tedious.

They've only gotten worse since then, with the maps crammed with hundreds of inane collectibles and shit, just loads and loads of busywork that is not very fun, so it's best ignored.

And the story in this game is absolute garbage, too.

But the pirate stuff?

Fan-fucking-tastic. I'm having a blast sailing the seas, hunting for ships with cargo I need, taking down forts so I can conquer the whole map, upgrading my ship to be even more badass, building my fleet so I have gobs of money coming in, and all that jazz.

With some refinements and improvements, they could have created a non-AC sequel that would have been the second best pirate game ever made (because Sid Meier's Pirates! will always be the best).

Hell, it might already be the second best ever made. I'm loving it.

Yep! And they're actually making a new game that's just the pirate shit called Skull and Bones:

My coworker got early access as part of the testing group for S&B and he said it was boring af in solo mode.

Which, ACIVBF was definitely not boring.

I have been watching people playing the new one, though and have not made my mind up about whether I will want it or not.

I looked into Skull and Bones and the bits that I saw were like, nah.

Perhaps there will be more to it, but what I saw makes it seem like it's just a multiplayer version of the ship-to-ship combat, with new abilities and upgrades.

Nah.

Give me the opportunity to prowl the seas, make a living, engage in trade, blah blah blah. The ship combat is fun, but it can't be JUST the ship combat. It's got to be about giving you all sorts of options to live out the pirate life.

In Black Flag, my ship is as decked out as it can be, short of some of the elite upgrades, which you have to do those shitty sunken ship missions to get. Screw that. My fleet is maxed out, and half my ships are Man-o-War ships. I have so much money coming in that it can't all be spent on anything useful, so I stopped doing the fleet stuff.

Basically, I'm just finishing out the story now. I may try to tackle the legendary ships, but other than assassin missions I have no desire to do the game's eight million collectibles and mini games and such.

So I probably only have a few days left to play.

Make that one day.

It's a shame the story was so weak, because the ending was pretty great. A bit heartbreaking, his daughter showing up and that whole credits sequence.

I could go and finish all the assassin missions, but otherwise I'm done.

Went and got another game right away, so I probably won't.

I collected all the songs.

Went shark fishing.

And blew up tons of ships and people.

That kept me going for about 3 months solid.

But, I beat off to anything.

I already got most of the songs. Only missing a handful.

Did some shark and whale hunting, but only a few times. Didn't engage me.

Have blown up more ships and people than I can count. I fear nothing on the high seas aside from the Legendary ships.

Got a good month out of it, and could squeeze out a few more days if I really wanted to.

Totally worth it. (Think I paid $14 for it, so it was a great bang for my buck.)
