By the way, there was a hint screen that said something about crafting, and there is some achievement about crafting things. Is this something that unlocks way later? I haven’t crafted anything yet. Does it mean upgrade your stuff with those resources on the gear screen?
By the way, this game is just gorgeous. I thought Black Flag was pretty with the sun drenched beaches, waves, storms and smoke. This game blows it away with the reeds, lilypads, desert and sunsets. Just breathtaking sometimes. I think it even beats W3.
Ubisoft is pretty damn close to making this franchise a full on RPG now. I mean you have dungeons, a huge map, tons of weapons, upgrades, stats, XP, leveling, looting bodies for stuff besides a few coins… you know I take it back, they HAVE made a full fledged RPG here. It’s amazing. They even have the Radiant AI type movements for all characters (even soldiers in camps) from the Elder Scrolls. But the world they built is soooooo much more impressive than anything Bethesda has made, way more akin to a CD Project effort. I think they really hit it out of the park with this one, it might be my GOTY.
