Ya, some even regard it as the best in the series, but you’ll get various opinions on that depending who you ask. Rogue I only just started, but from what I hear in the AC reddit, it’s basically just more of ACIV style gameplay, but from the perspective of a Templar instead of an assassin, which is a nice change of pace (you may want to read up a bit on Templar’s and assassin’s, or at least understand that they are opposed to each other as enemies, and usually you play the role of an assassin).

Even the Japan version requires a Download. What a load of junk UBi. Why can't you even fit on one cart like Witcher 3. NA requires download for Rogue.

Yeah I bought this game again, I forgot where I lost interest last time on the Wii U version. Hopefully I'll be able to play this for much longer this time. Also, for some odd reason, out of all the Switch games I have Black Flag's surround sound is the best. lol (MH XX/GU being second I guess)

I don’t have surround sound, but using headphones has really elevated my experience gaming lately. And this game sounds excellent using a headset.

I’ll have to try Monster Hunter again with a headset and see how the audio fares. Nobody ever mentioned the audio being great in that game (it sounded good to me but everything kind of sounds the same when you are listening on a TV speaker or the system).

I’m already farther along than I ever got on Wii U. And played the first missions in Rogue, Freedom Cry and Aveline to get a taste of what they’re like. Rogue seems really good.

The thing that made me quit the first time was the naval combat which was completely over my head at the time. Mind you I had just gotten back into gaming and found myself gravitating more towards platformers and easier games. But now it doesn’t seem hard at all. A little complex but nothing too hard.

This game really is a gem, and from what little I’ve played, so is Rogue. A fantastic package of some of the finest games and expansions in the series, and it’s actually a little shocking seeing how well they hold up on Switch. I’m not quite used to that yet.

I mean, good headphones can simulate surround sound pretty well. Even my cheap headphones has awesome quality. lol

That said, yeah Monster Hunter's surround sound is alright, I can't remember how 3U handles it or 4U with headphones. But I don't think surround sound is that great for a game like Monster Hunter, all the action and sounds are in front of you. Even Ahtal Ka, I couldn't really hear much behind me while she was in her puppet phases and I was under her and all that. Shagaru, I was hoping to hear the Frenzy storm all over the place (the storm he summons when enraged), but in Generations, the sounds kinda, phase out so you barely hear it, go figure. lol (I can't remember how it sounds in 4U, don't think I even had the headphones back then and just had earbuds)

That said, yeah I'm enjoying surround sound in Black Flag, I'm walking by people talking and I can continue hearing their conversations behind me clearly, stuff like that. xp

@Joeynator3000
Do you need to have your Switch system settings on surround, or automatic or something? I’m pretty sure my Arctis 3 with Bluetooth and new Arctis 1 Wireless has 5.1 surround at the minimum. But I can’t really tell much of a difference between just normal stereo.

I like it when games give me the option to toggle between dynamic range for headphones, surround or tv. Alien Isolation does this.

Maybe I’ll try toggling my system setting to surround.

@JaxonH Yeah, my Switch is set to surround. You also have to remember that Nintendo systems HAS to use HDMI, and I also heard that it can be tricky to get it working with receivers for true surround sound systems. So you may have to mess with receiver settings there, I have a soundbar so I just connect the systems directly and it's pretty much done for me.

But yeah, it has to be HDMI for Nintendo systems otherwise surround sound won't work. Don't know what to say about receivers.

Got my ship and captain's quarters unlocked. Been going to town attacking and boarding vessels. Getting pretty good at the naval combat. Not even interested in side quests really. I like exploring for chests and artifacts, hunting, etc, but no desire to chase side missions (yet).

Not too good at the stealth, but I'm pretty good at fighting my way out of a jam. Which helps me as I practice getting better at the stealth.

Still love the leaps of faith into a bail of hay. One of the funniest things you can do in a video game. Never gets old.

Yeah my stealth is..."okay"? Like last night I had to steal a key to a warehouse, and the guy was always walking with another the entire time. Spent way too much time trying to kill him, no matter how I positioned myself, my whistle would ALWAYS attract the other person. I eventually got frustrated and said "screw this...", I just bolted after him and killed a bunch of people to grab the key. lol

But yeah, attacking ships and all that is still fun and all that. xp

@Joeynator3000
I was just playing that segment 2 hours ago 😁

I just hid in the closet, popped out and assassinated him, then fight the other guy and the couple guys who came running, and hid in the bushes again. I find myself fighting quite a bit but I am getting noticeably better as I play and I’m sure you will too. It’s like Splinter Cell Blacklist. First time I tried that game I failed the tutorial mission in the very first room there’s an enemy four times in a row to the point I almost shut it off and never played again. But then everything clicked and though I did struggle I ended up beating that game, and loving every minute.

I’ve already upgraded almost everything on my ship at least once, and some things two times. I don’t know where I got all that currency from, I think it was from U-Play. Speaking of which, don’t forget to redeem some rewards for the game on U-Play via the menu. I burned like 400 coins on ACIII Collection and Rebel Collection. I had been saving them up for a quality title and these are the ones with the coolest rewards.

Also, just got my Arctis 1 Wireless Headset, and the audio quality is noticeably better than the Arctis 3 with Bluetooth. Guess I didn’t realize the loss of quality over Bluetooth.

Dunno about U-Play since I don't think I've ever used it. If I did it was with my old email and I just made a new account instead. lol

EDIT: Also...this happened. lol

Took a small break to try out Dauntless, lol
By small I mean that I deleted Dauntless after the first quest. xD

I'm waiting till Christmas to pick this up. Can't wait! At the moment i'm trying to force myself not to watch any more Black Flag vids on youtube because I don't want to spoil too much.

Dantless was really good but the lobby is super laggy. I had a fun time hunting the moster, and it ran great for that but ya, the laggy lobby is a turn off.

Just got access to Kenway's Fleet, upgrading my home base and taking out higher level ships left and right. Captured my first that required killing 15 and destroying their flag.

Nope. I’m playing the heck outta Black Flag right now to. It’s the only AC game (and Rogue) that I’ve not gotten bored with and beaten. For one, because I’ve always wanted a great Pirate game and IMO this is the best Pirate game ever made to date. An second, Rogue is the same exact thing just with a winter setting when it’s all said and done. 👍🏻

I wonder what’s going on with Skulls & Bones. Haven’t heard much of anything since they showed it off at E3 and that was at least 2yrs a go if I remember right. @JaxonH

Not sure. Lost in development, presumably.

This game really is excellent. It's so much fun battling ships, taking on entire fleets... boarding ships and taking over. It truly is the best pirate game ever made. And Rogue does seem to be ACIV: Black Flag - Winter Templar Edition.

Skull & Bones looked pretty cool, but yeah who knows now. Odd.

Yep. That’s why I never understood all the Rogue bashing back when it came out. I remember (not on this forum) so many people saying it sucked, was boring, etc. while claiming Black Flag was amazing.

In my head I was like how dumb can these people be. Rogue in every sense is played just like Black Flag from the ships, shanties, chests, etc. you name it... So how can you possibly not like it. 👀 😂 @JaxonH

Yeah, S&B was supposed to come out like...2 years ago? I can't remember....>_>

Anyways yeah, I think I'm just terrible with ship battles now...they keep destroying me with ease. Same with normal battles, too...ugh. >.<
