Who’s the better captain, Kirk or Picard? Ya see, this is a question meant to be settled among friends verbally, over drinks and snacks, and not, say, in an arena with a bat’leth. So when two gamer buddies play Assassin’s Creed III and think out loud, “I don’t get how he doesn’t at least get hurt” you’re supposed to say, “Game physics.” You’re not supposed to actually perform experiments on yourselves.
With Assassin’s Creed III launching into American Revolutionary stabbiness at the end of this month, it’s only natural to speculate exactly how it will evolve its predecessor’s DNA. While I’ve enjoyed the series so far, though, I still prefer Assassin’s Creed (AC1) to its successors.
Yesterday we saw two new trailers for Assassin’s Creed 3, the latest game in the popular stab-’em-up series, one for the US markets and one for the UK. Guess which one is more historically accurate?
Assassin’s Creed is one of the best, most entertaining video game series I’ve played, and I’m always happy to learn more about the branches in Desmond Miles’ family tree.
But while the new trailer has given me reasons to eagerly anticipate the release of AC3 on October 30, 2012, it’s also given me as many reasons to keep my enthusiasm on a low simmer rather than a full boil.
