I love it.

For those that this somehow flew under their radar...

This is the original concept trailer from 2008. It was originally planned for PS3. It is a Playstation Vita exclusive now.



This is the launch trailer that was posted yesterday. This is the first video I have seen that really does the action in this game justice.



This game is delightful and I highly recommend you play it through whatever means you have available.

This is the only game so far I'd want to buy a Vita for, but can not justify buying one yet to play just one game -.-

To each their own. I've gotten dozens of hours of play in Lumines and also Disgaea 3. I also played through Escape Plan, Space Blob, and Uncharted. I'm happy with my purchase. I have a 30 minute morning/evening commute though. Can't wait for Retro City Rampage.

If they add a GTA or Saints Row that isn't a straight port, I'll be extremely happy.

How about Assassin's Creed with a female assassin lead? More details after the gameplay video.

I'd really like a Vita, but I can't justify dropping the c notes on it until it's at least as useful as my PSP.

Gravity Rush does look awesome, for what it's worth.

The Assassin's Creed game has me tempted. Luckily, I have until almost November to decide.

Female Freedman sounds like a pretty awesome heroine, yeah.

What's seriously irritating, though, is that Ubisoft has pretty much ONLY shown images and videos of fighting with Redcoats for the new games, when you're supposed to be a non-partisan member of the conflict (the whole POINT of the AC games has been to say that major wars have pretty much always been orchestrated by Templars on both sides for their own game--there have to be American Templars, and it's going to be a really weak story if they don't make some notable figures into them). They've done it for every other culture, there's no excuse to protect delicate American sensibilities.

What I'm hoping:
1. The Federalists (so John Adams, James Madison, and others) all end up being Templars, or their unknowing allies.
2. Benedict Arnold isn't actually betraying the American People, he just discovered the Templar plot on his end and was hoping to stop it, not realizing the extent of Templar influence with the British.

As for the game itself, if they don't accurately portray slave culture, or at least make an acceptable attempt to, I will lose all respect for Ubisoft and the AC line.

Really, as much as I loved the games up until now, the new ones are making me really frickin' nervous.

It's a huge gamble to portray America in a bad light in video-games. The industry as a whole made many strides to being respected in the entertainment industry in the past 10 years but even Television and Movies have a hard time getting away with it unless it is so, hidden meaning, metaphoric and innuendo-zed that the makers of it can hide behind the phrase "Open to interpretation." A game like this making head-lines with that kind of content in our community in an election year would be like throwing gold to Republicans or any other politician who loves smoke and mirrors. What a great distraction for the American public, a two-fer in some politicians eyes. They can distract the American public from real issues and they can go back to their pet project of suppressing another form of expression. On top of all that, just to add fuel to the fire, I believe ubisoft is a France based company. We all know how much America hearts France.

Yes it's stupid that this could be a reason why they don't keep true to their standard storyline so far but, for a business, I can't blame them for not wanting to get involved in such a mess of a situation.
Then again they could of just skipped the American Revolution all together if that was their worry.

That's really my stance on it. Either you go all the way, or you don't do it at all. To set a game like AC in the Revolutionary period, you need to be discussing some pretty immense issues that the American populace pretty firmly refuses to acknowledge as part of our own personal history, chattel slavery and native relations being pretty far at the front of that list. Then you need to add in the brutality of American forces towards British forces and (more importantly) loyalists, and a game like AC would actually need to ground the events in the earlier history. American public perceptions of the revolution place it in this vacuum, like it all just starts there. The story almost never begins with the Seven Years War, like it should.

So, yeah, I'm really worried about this game. Go all the way or don't do it at all.

I'm okay with it not being historically correct. It's a video game.

The Founding Fathers can't be Templars. They were all Freemasons!
