Assassin’s Creed: Checkmate Imagines Edward Kenway As A Guy Ritchie Protagonist [Video]

If only time actually worked like that. We would all be way less awkward as people.

Hands down, the best parts of all the Guy Ritchie Sherlock Holmes movies is when Robert Downey Jr.'s Holmes has to decide the best way to kick somebody's teeth in using hyper-fast mental calculations -- which sounds like a trick that a member of the Assassins would totally know how to do.

Is “Historical Accuracy” a Good Defense of Patriarchal Societies in Fantasy Fiction?

Olden Lore

Are you aware that human history is full of examples of sexist, patriarchal societies where women were discriminated against? I'm sure you are, as a reader of The Mary Sue. I'm pretty sure you are as a person alive in the 21st Century, too. Yet so many of the historically inspired fantasy worlds we love are remarkably intent on reminding us of this. When I raise this issue with someone, I often get some variation of this in reply. Sexism in (to pick the most obvious example) medieval fantasy is okay or even desirable, the thinking goes, because in the real European Middle Ages sexism was the status quo. There's no denying that, but fantasy is called fantasy because it's a fantasy. There were no dragons in the real Middle Ages either, but we don't have a problem including them.

The Microtransactions Are Coming: Assassin’s Creed III to Offer Multiplayer Credit Bundles

If they can offer tiny tidbits of content for a price, especially if these are just ways to make content already present in the game available faster, they will. Ubisoft is no different. Turns out that their latest game, Assassin's Creed III, will apparently have packs of something called "Erudito Credits" available for purchase.

Ubisoft’s Assassin’s Creed Branded U.S. Flag Is Probably A Violation Of Federal Law

Tweeted out by Jeff Gerstman, the Assassin's Creed-branded flag you see above is clearly intended to promote the upcoming Assassin's Creed III, set during the American Revolution. If you're at all aware of the Flag Code, it might strike you as slightly lacking in class. If you know more about the Flag Code, this might strike you as a violation of Federal law. And if you have the whole thing memorized, you know it probably doesn't actually matter, but it's still against code.
