    I don't have problem with playing as a native American killing white folks, but I probably won't buy the game as I'm not sold on the setting - the AC games were all about navigating elaborate cities for me. Not sure how that will work in a frontier America setting.

    It's not only that but the way Ubi have advertised the game. Now I know how the Russians or Germans must feel when MOH, COD or whatever paints them as the bad guys.

    That's probably why a lot of them are into their PC strategy games.

    Do you play a game that portrays Russians as bad guys and then actually believe they're bad guys?

    They are AI's though. They don't really have a nationality.

    What if you accidentally kill one of your ancestors and start to fade away?!

    So its only classed as murder if the AI have the same pretend nationality as you?

    No one demands balance in any other game involving other nationalities.

    My in transit Ubi Workshop edition is currently in Philadelphia. 2 days before Hurricane Sandy is likely to hit...

    Bugger.

    Obviously the people of Philly are more important than my parcel, and I wish them well.

    Good job I have the join or die edition coming from shopto too.

    Can't bring myself to buy this game. I know Ubi say the English are not the main/only protagonists in this game but every time I see a trailer the Assassin is killing British troops, usually with a massive American flag flapping about.

    It doesn't sit right with me, even though this is a game, so I will not be buying it. Unfortunately no one else cares and this game will sell massively in the UK.
    Bless.

    Ruins a bit of a surprise but nothing really heavily plot related:
    You play as a british assassin (haytham) for the first few sequences
    Might make others feel less "offended".

    Wasn't there some DLC advertised that involved going after an evil Washington? Assuming I didn't just imagine that, anyway. :D

    That's an alternate history DLC for it where he sets himself up as king.

    So alternate history in a game that's all alternate history, my brain hurts!

    Shows how different this game is really. Apparently, you can't kill civilians in this game, at least not with melee weapons.
    Has anyone received a Shopto despatch email? Some people have.

    I really wish this had come out a month or so ago, release congestion is really stupid this year.

    Yup, mine has been dispatched apparently. I'm guessing it's still unlikely to arrive on Monday though.

    Really temped to use some of my rather significant amount of remaining holiday just because of this.

    At our busiest time of the year. For a video game.

    Those nice people at ShopTo have sent me a photo of my package (oh err!). Will arrive Monday!

    The Resident Evil films. I'm one of the reasons they keep making them.

    I don't get the whole "he's killing brits"

    What else would he be killing? At the time period it takes place, there is no such thing as "American". There is just British, French, Spanish etc.

    It's not Americans trying to gain independence, it's British people trying to gain independence. When they got it, they could oficially be called Americans but that doesn't mean they still weren't Brits ethnically.

    From the same video...

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A4szviFLf1g#t=485s

    Watch the Redcoat being killed. WTF kind of bug is that!? He disappears, then he seems to reappear, flapping about like some weird inter-dimensional bird, before ragdolling on to the ground.

    New engine, three years in development, still got bugs. AC3 better not turn out be another pot-luck mess like Brotherhood & Revelations were when they were released.

    They might release a day one patch to fix issues like those. It's nothing gamebreaking though so i wouldn't mind too much. More of a funny glitch i think

    I kinda laughed at it, yeah, but still. Ubi have earned themselves a bit of a track record with the questionable state in which Brotherhood & Revelations were released and the way they released AC2's DLC riddled with audio bugs (that were never resolved).

    I thought the extended development for AC3 might rule all that out, not completely, but I didn't expect to be seeing NPCs doing an impression of the Freeling's house at the end of Poltergeist.

    Well i can tell you now that that isn't the only glitch/issue i've seen but like i said, none of them seem to be gamebreaking. To be fair, the game is pretty huge and the issues could be fixed with a day one patch but it's not been mentioned.

    For anyone who hasn't played any of the previous games in the series/ has missed one or two or, like me, just needs a reminder, IGN have done a pretty good video detialing the key points of all 4 games.

    Obviously, MASSIVE SPOILERS (for AC1, 2, Brotherhood and Revelations)!

    I'm waiting to get this on Wii U... it's going to be a tough wait.
