Why Are There No Elise or Evie Frye Assassin’s Creed McFarlane Action Figures?   Leave a comment

In February 2013, McFarlane Toys announced teaming up with Ubisoft for a new Assassin’s Creed (AC) action figure line. The following is a listing of all the AC action figures released so far (It appears they stopped the line in 2015. Ubisoft took a break and did not release a game in 2016):

Series 1

  • [AC III]
    • Connor (main outfit)
    • Connor (New York Outfit) (Walgreens Exclusive)

    • Ratonhnhak√©:ton (Conor’s real name with outfit from the DLC)
  • [AC IV: Black Flag]
    • Edward Kenway
    • Benjamin Hornigold
    • Black Bart (Amazon Exclusive)
    • Black Beard (Gamestop Exclusive)
    • Golden Age of Piracy (3 in 1 package with Black Bart, Black Beard, and Benjamin Hornigold) (Walmart Exclusive)

Series 5

  • Connor (Revolutionary red/white/blue outfit) [AC III]
  • Ezio Auditore Da Firenze (Il Tricolore outfit) [AC Revelations]
  • Jacob Frye (Union outfit) [AC Syndicate]

Despite having significant importance or being a main character in their respective games, Elise and Evie Frye did not get their own action figures from this toy line.

One could argue that this line consist only of the main characters, but most of the pirates only worked with Edward Kenway. The same with Ah Tabai. We only talk to him a few times in Black Flag and I don’t get why he got his own action figure. What about Anne Bonny or James Kidd? They were pirates and definitely more significant to the game’s story than Ah Tabai. Why not have Elise or Evie, who are main characters in the game?

One could say they only wanted to feature assassins and not the villains. Then why do they have Haytham Kenway? What about Shay Cormac (Assassin turned Templar headlining his own game)? Elise was the daughter of a Templar and was a Templar herself. Arno was raised by a Templar (Elise’s father) after Arno’s father was murdered by a Templar. Assassin’s Creed Unity’s story was a turning point in the series, showing the gray areas of the battle between Assassins and Templars. The cooler heads of Arno and Elise’s fathers was working together for the good of the people. But then factions within the Assassins and Templar orders did not want them working together. But I digress.

I feel that they should have had people who know the Assassin’s Creed games, gotten their input on which characters are relatable, and released the action figures for them.

Sprinting Through Assassin’s Creed Unity (Time Lapse)   Leave a comment

My first YouTube upload of 2019. I just started playing Syndicate and I have to say that Assassin’s Creed Unity feels like a next gen game compared to that. Syndicate looks larger in comparison, but there are more NPCs in Unity as well as more open buildings with interior spaces to explorer.

Sprinting Time
Versailles………… 02min03sec
Paris……………….. 07min41sec

Total……………….. 09min44sec

Disclaimer: This is by no means an accurate measuring of the distance. How long it takes to do the feat (walking, running, swimming, etc) does not factor game objects that prevent you from trudging on full speed (storms, sailing close to land to drop out of full speed, missed turns, people, invisible walls, etc).

Crossing BOTH MAPS w/o TOUCHING the Ground! The Floor is Lava Challenge (Assassin’s Creed Unity)   Leave a comment

Is it possible to cross both Versailles and Paris maps in Assassin’s Creed Unity without touching the ground? In this video, I’ll do the “Floor is Lava” challenge, previously attempted on the New York map in Assassin’s Creed Rogue on PS3 (I made it three-quarters of the way through).

I start from the farthest “non-ground” surface on one side of the map and climb/hop/scale walls, trees, roofs, and other above ground objects towards the opposite side without touching the main ground.

Below are interesting sections in the playthrough:

00:17 – Explanation of the challenge
01:22 – Start of Versailles section
04:48 – Close Call #1
05:23 – ???
06:40 – Close Call #2
07:11 – Almost at the other side of the map

07:35 – Next up, Paris!
08:57 – Start of Paris section
11:00 – YOLO Jump, Close Call #3
16:30 – ????
17:10 – Co-op dude says ‘Hi’
20:30 – Heading to row houses on top of bridge
21:28 – ?????
23:55 – Two-thirds of the way across Paris map
24:22 – Close Call #4
26:41 – Rant about how beautiful this game is
30:00 – Home stretch
32:23 – Scaring bullies
34:30 – Random cat

Duck Walking Through Assassin’s Creed Unity (Time Lapse)   Leave a comment

The streaming quality was so-so in my previous video. Whenever I have too much movement going on, the screen starts tearing and pixelating. Unless I’m directly connected to the Internet, my stream quality will be a downgrade. I managed to get my Live Gamer Portable working on PS4. I can get 1080P HD resolution. Only problem is it can’t get to 60FPS at 1080P. Good thing is AC Unity maxes out at 30FPS on consoles, I believe.

So this is a first for my channel and for this series: Duck Walking.

In previous AC games (AC3, AC4, and AC Rogue), crouching is contextual. There is no dedicated crouch button. Your character automatically crouches when you’re near a hiding spot like tall grass, plants, and when you’re stalking a target. AC Unity introduced a crouch button. This means you could crouch walk throughout the entire game as long as you’re not running. This is me duck walking through the main game maps (Versailles and Paris) to see how long it takes cross.
