Happy Halloween, but I think more importantly, Happy Assassin’s Creed 3 Day! And Happy Need For Speed: Most Wanted Day as well!

Anyway, between Hurricane Sandy blowing through and wrecking shop and it being the time of the year when folks don’t have enough samoleons to pay for all the games they want to grab for the holiday season, we wanted to get up the opening sequence of Assassin’s Creed 3 to give everyone a taste of what to expect from what has to be the end game of the fight between the Assassins and Templars (at least for this generation of consoles).

Well, Assassin’s Creed 3 starts off a little differently than I’d expected.  Of course, the obligatory “tutorial” phase of run/jump/climbing, however, you quickly jump from Desmond Miles into the body of one Haithem Kenway, an assassin who is sent to Boston to figure out what the Templar order is hiding in a Pre-cursor storage facility housed there.  A quick night at the opera and a journey across the Atlantic later….I do have to say, they do a bang up job getting the average Call of Duty kiddie up to speed with the story at the outset; although I can’t imagine anyone jumping into Assassin’s Creed 3 without an inkling of what to expect at this point.

Anyway, please to enjoy!
