SheSaidSheSaid;4661540 said:Now here is a thread that might make me want to be a member of this forum again I've been thinking about possible assassination targets for a game set in colonial America and have come up with....absolutely no one. Canon so far hasn't revealed anyone from this era as a Templar (all the real people said to be Templars are either from antiquity or times even more modern). They have established George Washington and Napoleon Bonaparte as having held a Piece of Eden. It's a mortal lock that Washington will be a character in the game.And I wonder how fast-and-loose they'll play with history. It's tougher to take liberties with historical fiction the more recent the history is. To whit, the seemingly blindingly obvious assassination target - Benedict Arnold. In real life, he didn't die until over a decade after the war ended. And he died of gout. Another possibility I thought of was a mission to save Nathan Hale, doomed to failure of course, and you take it out on his executioners.The assassin on the boxart appears male (sigh), but I thought it would be outstanding if the ancestor was Agent 355. She's been fictionalized into a video game at least once before, but come on, what a juicy possibility.I'm excited to learn more, and by all accounts it seems that further details are coming soon.

Pankrazzo;4661869 said:AC II's setting, story and its visuals are amazing, it's just the combat system that bored me out really fast. It's still worlds beyond more interesting than FPS games though.Playing I & II back to back probably didn't help either. Will definitely give it another shot this summer.
