Assassin’s Creed III and Assassin’s Creed III: Liberation both released today for consoles in North America, and will launch tomorrow in Europe. These games are notable since they are major titles starring Native American and African American heroes, respectively, something that is still shamefully rare in the game industry.
Is anyone playing either of these games? I know the marketing for the main game in particular has put some people off with its jingoism; Stephen Totilo at Kotaku seems to think the actual game is more complex than that, but if you’re playing it, what do you think? Is Aveline an interesting character? How is the issue of slavery handled in the games? Discuss!
