The Assassin's Creed Website likewise reports a delay, saying the PC edition of the stealthy action game is now expected on April 8, 2008. Thanks FiringSquad.

As for Vegas... if the Health system is still as pathetic as the last one, than I spit on it. Seriously, what crazy fuck created the hype around the crazy fuck health system that right about every tactic FPS features these days? It really ruins the tension.

works very well in CoD4 online... in fact, makes things more tense, screen flashing red and all while you hobble to safety. In hardcore I mean, it's a little ridiculous in softcore.

It doesn't ruin anything for me, as it is still possible to die, and there is still the tension of trying to get to safety to recover if you run in to an area and get overwhelmed. I prefer it to keeping an old style health # on screen and having to collect health packs or whatever. That was/is the least fun aspect of any shooter I've ever played.

It's a player and developer friendly way to do health/damage etc. Few people give a fuck about realism. Developers can tune every encounter with the expectation the player will have 'full health' and not have to worry about frustrating players with progression halting issues from an 'old style' health system and/or having to sprinkle health packs everywhere, especially before big encounters.

To each their own. It's an improvement over a numeric health as far as I'm concerned.

I didn't expect AC any earlier. Did anyone?

"Shit! Shit!"
"What?"
"I just got hit by a bullet in my eye Šnd in my throat!"
"Dude... just sit back and chill for a sec."
*5 seconds later*
"Thanks for the advice! I feel like newborn baby already!"

I fucking hate it.

Pardon my French.

Cheers...

Delayed until.....April? Thats not really that bad. If you want to see the real definition of delays, look at Valve and Blizzard. (it's always worth it with them though)

At least with the extra time, Vegas 2 might not be as much of a piece of shit as Vegas was for PC.
