Digital Chumps - Ubisoft strikes silently (actually loudly) with its latest addition to the Assassin's Creed series with Assassin's Creed III. The past titles have seen different European histories played out around a single assassin character, but with AC3 they're taking their lead character Connor Kenway (Ratonhnhake:ton) and placing him right in the middle of the Revolutionary War. I find the choice of historical reference very interesting, as it had to be complicated to find a spot for Connor to rest in as the war unfolds almost accurately. It's certainly an interesting time period that brought with it an already established amount of tension (with slaves, Americans, British). Mixing in the Templars and the Assassin's folk couldn't have been an easy task, but Ubisoft did it quite well.
