Assassin’s Creed III is a new historical action video scheduled for release in October 2012. Set in colonial America covering the period from 1753 to 1783, this latest endeavor in the uber-popular Assassin series is already out-performing marketing expectations. Ubisoft, the creative company that has developed this very successful video game concept, has announced that pre-orders for Assassin’s Creed III have already well out-distanced its two previous video game releases.
Of course, the American Revolution setting for this video game, along with its patriotic values, have put the Left-wing media insiders into an apoplectic tizzy. Scraping every anti-American factoid from their constipated colons, these American culture killers have panned Assassin’s Creed III as nothing more than jingoistic BS. But to their ever-frenzied consternation, the US buying public ain’t buying their quite boring I hate America campaign. They’re buying the video instead.
Over the course of the game, the hero will encounter historical figures including George Washington, Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Jefferson, Charles Lee, Israel Putnam, Paul Revere, General Lafayette, John Pitcairn, William Prescott, King George III, Samuel Adams and Friedrich Wilhelm von Steuben. The story will span 30 years of the hero’s life, from 1753 to 1783. Boston and New York will be cities that can be explored, as well as the Frontier—an open world area full of forest, cliffs, rivers, the hero’s Mohawk village, and the settlements of Lexington and Concord. The entire eastern seaboard will also be explorable via the hero captaining a ship. Wikipedia
I would venture to say that most young Americans today have never heard of Charles Lee, Israel Putnam, or John Pitcairn, et. al. Hence, the lesson to be learned here for American conservatives is to grasp the immense power of just one video game to impart knowledge about and appreciation for our American heritage. Taking back America is not an all-or-nothing proposition.
Here’s a clip from the game. Of course, it has its politically correct elements—the Assassin is half American Indian whose home is attacked by colonists and 21st century moralizing is smacked onto an 18th century reality—but on the whole, this video game is a positive shift in the Right direction.
