Assassin's Creed Unity - Who Speaks French In France?
Who speaks French in France?
Who speaks French in France?
I could be wrong, but I get the impression that Ubisoft generally script their games in English originally. I would understand if it's otherwise, though, given the fact that they are a largely French developer/publisher.Skeleon said:It's a bit silly to expect them to speak French/with a French accent in an English translation of the game. Admittedly, though, it's also a bit silly to then give them a few token French words to say. That's why I play it in the original German! "Wer sei" is a very beautiful place, even to this day.
Now that you mention it, I would love a game where you play a cute baby assasin who jumps down on people from high places, murders them and then when the guards come running, the baby is curled up asleep nearby or in a high chair or doing something cute, so the guards never suspect. I guess after a while it would seem strange that the exact same baby was at every since murder site, but then again, AC guards are dumb.FPLOON said:I would totally play a game called Baby Assassin's Creed...
Other that that, isn't everyone traveling through time regardless if they have a specific pocket watch? Granted, it's only in the forward position, but I digress...
I get the impression he's basically considered to be a minor noble, the equivalent of a bastard son who doesn't have full access to the monies or titles but has certain rights such as that to be armed, after all he does still live in his adopted father's estate, even if he gets crap from the servants. What's more it can be argued the revolution is in swing through most of the game in one way or another, you have mobs, and bands of armed men (many of whom attack you) everywhere, law and order are breaking down, so it probably doesn't stick out quite as much. Then again it might also explain some of the wonkier aggression mechanics where people attack you for no good reason.Thunderous Cacophony said:That's why you always leave a note.
Also, can we talk about the fact that Arno works what is obviously a fairly basic job but still wears a sabre? Seems like a bit much, even (spoiler) for someone who was adopted by the Templar Grand Master.
Potentially yes, The Assassin's Creed concept seemed largely to have a very open concept based on conflict which could allow them to build a series of third person action games set in various historical periods. As a result they could effectively churn out endless numbers of them without ever being forced to end the story since everything is being "relived in the past" and of course not run out of game backdrops unless somehow they ran out of nations and time periods to set them in. The core gameplay which is pretty much "design a period open world, throw in some voice actors playing historical people from the open world, litter the open world with collectibles, and create a series of story missions where you kill people between cinematics rambling about Templars and Assassins as a justification". It's not a bad idea as far as such things goes because so far they have managed to carry the series on people seeing open world recreations of different time periods. It's become a formula, but a well conceived one that could in theory carry on forever unless people totally lose interest in history.Auron225 said:That last bit where he actually spoke French just made the whole thing weirder.
Had they stuck with English the whole way through then at least it would be reasonable to assume it's purely for our sake that they had everyone speaking English. We could assume they'd really be speaking French if we understood it. But now the distinction has been made! It's like "Wait, he speaks English AND French. So for 99% of this, people are actually speaking English and it is definitely not French".
Also, I'm forever astounded as to how many AC games there are. Is the goal to outnumber Mario?
