just got it with my new 780 (gonna sell my 7970 on ebay to pay for it) and i was wondering how is this game(and the series), always meant to play it but never got around to it. I'm mostly a 3rd person shooter type of gamer(mass effect, uncharted, gears) looking for something different. I heard the Pirate elements were pretty good. Will I be lost story wise having never played a AC game before?

You'll get spoiler'd about the end of Assassin's Creed III pretty early on, but it's nothing super major if you don't plan on playing it.

In my opinion, Assassin's Creed IV is probably the best in the series. The pirate stuff is really fun, the game looks really nice on a high-end card, and I've put 35 hours or so and I'm probably about halfway done.

I was going to try and sell the Nvidia codes I got, but I'm glad I decided to play it instead. Well worth it.

This is easily my favorite in the series. The ship mechanics are awesome, the combat is satisfying, the world is huge.

Picked it up a few days ago and I am really liking it so far.
I ended up playing it almost all of Sunday.
I just kept going "I'll stop just as soon as I do this" over and over again.
Have you accepted Raspberyl as your loli and savior?

Easily one of my favorite, and I've played since nearly day 1 of the first game.

Rush the crappy beginning. Once you get to sail freely it becomes a fun game.

Honestly, its amazing! I.. usually erm... demo games. But I bought the Gold edition (comes with all the console and pre order goodies and season pass) and I have no regrets! its awesome! Im saving multiplayer for last. Never really played em before.
