Yeah, Assassin's Creed makes references to God and Jesus.

Except AC explicitly says they don't exist, it was aliens.

Dickhead's book is all about using ancestral genetic memory to prove God and Jesus existed as well as Creationism.

If it was me I'd dismiss it on those grounds alone.

I'd dismiss it on the fact he's waited this long to say something.

Yeah, Tim Langdell's case with Mirror's Edge is also similar that one of the court dismissal is because they take too long to sue...

Actually it is exactly the same thing.

Statute on limitations for copyright infringement suits is three years.

Wanker's book came about in 2002, Assassin's Creed in 2007.

I'm surprised I first heard about this game just two weeks ago. I'll try to only post info that hasn't already been discussed here.

Limited areas of Philadelphia will be appearing in select missions, similar to Rome in ACII.

This preview talks about various aspects of the game, a few that stand out to me are that:
  • Injured enemies can be tracked through blood trails left in the snow.
  • Random Events will be in the game
  • Amongst the weather effects are fog and rain the latter of which will prevent the use of guns.
  • "Connor has a rope-dart, which he can use as a sort of violent zip-line to slam into his injured targets at speed. At one point, this was going to be a ‘chain blade’ until the devs decided that was too sci-fi. The rope-dart was a genuine Chinese item of the time."

An interview from pennyarcade goes over some of the difficulties in creating a Native American protagonist as well as why, despite having historically taken place and being seriously considered during development (even appearing in the demo), scalping will not be available to the player. It is unknown if this extends to NPCs or other story elements.

The three special editions include the following in-game content:
  • Special
    • Scottish Flintlock
    • Traditional Colonial Assassin skin
    • A Dangerous Secret memory (+ Flintlock Musket)
  • Join or Die
    • Sharpshooter multiplayer persona (+ 1 Relic, 1 Emblem, "The Jester" Avatar, "The Jester" Title)
    • Ghost of War memory (+ Pontiac's War Club)
  • Freedom
    • Sharpshooter multiplayer persona (+ 1 Relic, 1 Emblem, "The Jester" Avatar, "The Jester" Title)
    • Ghost of War memory (+ Pontiac's War Club)
    • Lost Mayan Ruins memory (+ Captain William Kidd's Cutlass)

Pre-order bonuses include:

Nothing is currently known about the plot/setting/content/etc. of the extra memories though their names and the unique weapon rewarded upon completion of each may provide some clues.

That article is awesome. I hope Ubisoft doesn't get yelled at too much by Real Patriotic Muricans who can't stand that their idols are getting the rough edges shown.

If they do, they have never seen 1776.

Paraphrased question Franklin asks: Why should I get/wake up and go with Adams to see the continental army and convince another member of the comity to sign the Declaration?

Answer from one of the other people: "For the drinking and whoring."

Franklin: *Immediately gets up* "What are we waiting for?"

However they portray him in game, I think he's going to be a memorable character at the very least.

I'd like if it Connor considers Franklin a Dirty Old Man and hates having to go to his workship to get Codex pages decoded/upgrades to his Tomahawk.

But I can't wait to be bros with George Washington.

We don't even know if he will be a bro at all in this series, so hold your horses. He could be a complete dick for all you know. :P

Heh, we get to unlock secret gameplay footage. Nice. By spamming our social media. Ugh. I hate forced viral campaigns.

Yes, I was rather disappointed.

Oh well, I'll let other people handle this.

...I suddenly feel the need to make Recap pages for the other AC games. I know that there are a couple of good info sites, but for people like [up] that would be more info then they need.

@[up] What makes you want to play AC 3?
