Totally worth it - joint best game in the series so far. You'll be singing along with the sea shanties in no time :D

Well exactly. It's going cheap now too on PS3 so may be worth treating myself to it for Christmas.

I'm not sure we have Rogue yet in the UK but I still haven't played Black Flag so I'm way behind. And while I'd like to play Unity, am I buying a PS4 just for the pleasure? Stuff that.

Play Black Flag and don't bother with Unity for now. It is a buggy mess at present so needs several patches - plus it runs like ass on Xbox One/PS4. Black Flag is probably as good as ACII overall, and then you also GET TO BE AN ACTUAL PIRATE

Shame about Mike Nichols - one of the great, under lauded American directors.

Anyway, I'm ranting and making Rogue sound like it's absolutely awful, which it's not. It's essentially playing AC 4 on AC 3's map which, while lazy from a creative point of view, is quite enjoyable. And, despite what most all the reviews are saying there are some new gameplay elements to be found. Being stalked by assassins and having to keep an eye on the "stalking zones" you usually use to hide and kill in actually changes the dynamic of the game quite a bit and the new grenade launcher and air rifle completely changed the way I approached assassinations that would have otherwise felt like "more of the same".

Aren't the River Valley and North Atlantic maps (which are huuuuuge and varied, with lots of detail) new to Rogue? I know New York is copy-pasted from III, but I don't remember those.

I watched this weird lyric video for Lenny Kravitz's Fly Away. It's just... out there.

Soul singer Jimmy Ruffin has died, aged 78. Ruffin passed away from an undisclosed illness on Monday (November 19) in a Las Vegas, Nevada hospital.

The Motown singer's children Philicia Ruffin and Jimmie Lee Ruffin Jr told The AP: "Jimmy Ruffin was a rare type of man who left his mark on the music industry. [Our] family in its entirety is extremely upset over his death.

"He will truly be missed. We will treasure the many fond and wonderful memories we all have of him.

"We appreciate all of the love and prayers from our family, friends, his colleagues and his adoring fans."

Jimmy is the older brother of the late David Ruffin of The Temptations, one of the most successful R&B groups of the 1960s.

He found major commercial success in his own right, scoring hits with 'What Becomes of the Brokenhearted' and 'Gonna Give Her All the Love I've Got' in the late '60s.

Jimmy had a career revival in the early 1980s with the Robin Gibb-produced US top ten hit 'Hold On (To My Love)', in addition to having his work covered by the likes of Michael Jackson and Gladys Knight & The Pips.

Most should have heard this classic love song over the years:

Anyone played either of the new games yet? I just got finished with Rogue and it was more than a little disappointing. I wasn't even upset that there doesn't appear to be any new character animations since Black Flag or that the biggest piece of land in the game is a reskinned section from AC3. What really bugged me was the complete and total lack of content.

Seriously, Rockstar put more into their GTA4 DLC than ubisoft put into this $60 "AAA" title. I'm not much of a multiplayer fan but the fact that it doesn't exist in Rogue just drives home the fact that this game was slapped together as an appetizer for Unity. And then there's the story.

The reviews saying Rogue has one of the best stories of any AC game are grossly overstating things. It's certainly got the best concept of any AC game so far, but at half the length of a typical AC game it's all so rushed that you never really get a chance to connect with anyone on an emotional level and the whole plot kinda hinges on that.

I think a simple solution would have been to have Edward Kenway as the Assassin turned Templar in Black Flag DLC but I'm pretty sure that couldn't happen for reasons more corporate than creative.

Anyway, I'm ranting and making Rogue sound like it's absolutely awful, which it's not. It's essentially playing AC 4 on AC 3's map which, while lazy from a creative point of view, is quite enjoyable. And, despite what most all the reviews are saying there are some new gameplay elements to be found. Being stalked by assassins and having to keep an eye on the "stalking zones" you usually use to hide and kill in actually changes the dynamic of the game quite a bit and the new grenade launcher and air rifle completely changed the way I approached assassinations that would have otherwise felt like "more of the same". 

In short, if you enjoy the series there's some fun to be had in Rogue. Just not for very long.
