In our first post-Christmas Speak-Up on Kotaku, commenter TheolaRegulus keeps the mood festive by giving thanks to Ubisoft for keeping the plot of the Assassin's Creed series together across many mediums.
I gotta hand it to Ubisoft with the Assassin's Creed series. For years I've been following games that are supposed to have a big, over-arching plotline with in-depth details and everything, but they've always failed on keeping it all together.
This hasn't been the case with the AC series...not just with the big 3 at the moment, but also including all the little extras they've done.
Altair's Chronicles, Bloodlines, Discovery, Lineage, The Fall, and Project Legacy have really helped expand on the mythos that Ubisoft have created, and it's all kept in tone and style with everything else.
Project Legacy especially has really shocked me with how good it is, expanding on little plot details from Brotherhood, and the Holiday pack they've released has tied even more historical events into the plotline.
If more game series' could remain as coherent and consistent in their execution and storyline, we'd probably have less need for constant reboots to a series.
