PETA: It’s ‘disgraceful’ for Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag to ‘glorify’ whaling

GamesBeat: Ubisoft started removing the cloak from Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag today. The new open-world action game stars a pirate assassin who sails the high seas, plunders for booty, and harpoons whales.

That last part, the whaling, is something we haven’t seen in many video games before, and we asked PETA for its feelings on the matter.

As soon as I saw the Whales in the screenshots I thought of The Witcher 3

On topic: PETA shouldnt play Far Cry 3 if they dont like this, the bunch of idiots

Derekvinyard132027d ago

Whaling? Have they played red dead redemption or far cry

PETA needs anger management, they're always so pissed off at everyone.

baraka0072027d ago

I think all crazy people are angry... At least I've never met a happy crazy person *shrug

Cupid_Viper_32027d ago


Maybe you haven't met a real crazy person?

all angry people who are crazy are perfectly happy being so....

I'm flying to Japan ASAP and eating whale in every shape, way, form, and style they serve it just to spite PETA.

Try their Dolphin Fillet Sandwich's while you're there! I hear they're delicious!!!

And I'm sure PETA would have had a fit with all the hunting in AC3.

darkronin2292027d ago

Wow, PETA sure doesn't waste any time, eh?

JeffGrubb2027d ago

I don't know...someone might have asked them for their opinion....

aliengmr2027d ago

"we asked PETA for its feelings on the matter"

Pretty clear I think.

shutUpAndTakeMyMoney2027d ago

I love animals but it's just a 3d whale...

They have no problem with all the virtual human killing? But complain about virtual whales? ok..

crazytown992027d ago

Yeah, but what do we do when we hunt those virtual whales to extinction?

Think about it.

KiRBY30002027d ago


we copy/paste.

CouldHaveYelledUiiW2027d ago

There's, virtually, nothing you can do about extinct whales.

when you think about it, "disgraceful" isn't that strong of a adjective. They were asked their opinion, I guess for once, they didn't do much wrong.

This was the past. Everything was glorified. Whaling, hunting, deforestation, slavery etc. That is the way it was.Just because you don't like it doesn't mean that people should hide the dark past that humanity once had. If you want you could just look at how horrible it once was knowing that we have moved on and become more civilized from those times. I for instance have no problems with people making references to slavery or using the terms at all. It is how it once was and I know very well it isn't like that anymore.Everything is part of history no matter how dark it is. If you want to put your fingers in your ears and pretend it never happened then fine but you have no right to stop those who refuse to deny it happened.
