We've been inside Assassin's Creed several times now. And by inside we mean we're absorbing the details and nuances of the "Inside" video series that's been setting up the game over the last several weeks. We'd love to have carnal knowledge of the Ubisoft stealth-action game but we haven't quite cracked that nut yet.
In this episode we get the background on how Colonial America is being brought to life. It was a unique time in the world and the North American continent specifically and all of that has to be presented if Connor's story is going to make sense. He essentially comes off as a ninja-special forces dude at a time when there weren't a lot of ninja-special forces dudes around. For all of that ass-kicking to mean something and make sense, the context of the world Connor is living in must be made clear. Check out episode four of "Inside Assassin's Creed III" and dare yourself not to grab a history book when you're done.
