:mad: :mad: :mad: The new AC game has upset a lot of people in England as in the new game your just killing them, manly American and English people buy this game and so a lot of people in England are not going to buy the AC3, Ubisoft really shouldn't make games that upset the main people that are going to buy it. I really want Ubisoft to see this and take it in account. Next time don't do this. No one wants to kill there own side. Do you think it will be funny if i made a game that you go round killing Americans and showing how much better we are? No so don't do it again.

Well I guess we can never make a game again about WWII because that would upset the Germans. I guess we can never make a game about any part of history because that would hurt someone's feelings. I guess we can never confront reality or history because someone will feel bad about losing. Makes perfect sense. I sure hope no one ever makes a game about Vietnam because we Americans went in and killed women and children and burnt down villages and I don't want that to be portrayed because it's an ugly part of my history that will hurt my feelings so no gaming company should ever be able to do that.

.......jk get over yourself.

Hmm..
This Person is apparently angry that he/she will be killing Pixels and Polygons using another several Pixels and Polygons..
and You`re saying that England is angry ? what ? you went and asked every one of them ? Apparently you did not ask EscoBlades and Mr_Shade..
They`re English and they do not seem to mind, You did not see me Crying about AC I killing Saracens, You did not see Greece "Angry" about killing Byzantines, and may I ask why werent you "Angry" at killing English in AC I ?
This is just so Idiotic and Immature; you do not want to buy AC III ? Fine its your loss..

they should definitely be allowed to do that, and they should be allowed to kill redcoats in AC3, but it wouldn't be avery good AC if there was only one clear enemy, and one clear ally, Connor should ally with both sides. AC have always been good at showing the history not found in the textbook.

Let's all cry and moan and whine about a game we know next to nothing about, have hardly seen or heard details of, and have not played. Yup...exactly that.

Give me a break. I'm reminded of something i retweeted yesterday (https://twitter.com/#!/Wons23/status/202159453997514753).

completely agree apart from the 'killing pixels' bit, it is more than that, if there was a game were you played as hitler and killed jewish people then loads of people would be upset, but no-one would say that they were only killing pixels and polygons. a sensitive issue is a sensitive issue no matter what form it's in, and despite the fact that i agree with you and don't really care i'm killing redcoats, i still have to disagree with your first comment

THAT is how I see it, If Britain made a video Game about an English Soldier during the Invasion of Egypt, and this Soldier is shown mercilessly killing Egyptians, Torturing and EVEN SPITTING ON THEIR FACES..
I wont really come out and say "Oh no.. England do this right because this is wrong and all of Egypt is "Angry"

yes, but in the op's defence we have seen loads of screens and 2 trailers and have read previews on 3 gameplay demos and you are only shown killing tons of redcoats.
but in your defence it is probably just down to marketing. however i hope they release some kind of image of Connor killing a colonist just to put peoples fears to rest and also to stop these pointless threads arising that only seem to end in arguments

Really? American and English people are the main people who buy Assassin's Creed games? Neither the United Kingdom or the Unites States have the largest population on Earth, especially not the UK. People from all over the world buy these games. Countries like France, Turkey, Russia, Brazil, to name a few, have a larger population than the United Kingdom and you mustn't think that because the games are made in English, only English-speaking people will buy them. Not to mention that the games get translated to various languages.

And if Ubisoft really planned to portray the British as the "bad guys" (since apparently "enemies" is the same as "bad guys" because the protagonist is always the "good guy"), then you would have been killing only English Crusaders in AC1, you would have killed King Richard I, Maria Thorpe wouldn't be Altaïr's wife and King Henry VIII wouldn't be shown as an ally of the Assassins in the Contracts in Brotherhood and Project Legacy. Just stop complaining, get a grip on reality.

yeah, a lot more countries buy AC, America clearly has the biggest fan base for video games so this american revolution setting will get quite a lot of american fans into the series, but england does have a pretty large AC fan base and this US friendly marketing their doing is dangerous, they've already shown that it's going to be a good game for americans so they should quit while their ahead and stop with this hugely patriotic advertising and start to get a wider audience excited for the game

I would like some statistics on where it says that England has a pretty large fan base, in comparison to other countries. I've seen more Brazilian AC fans than English AC fans on the Wiki. The United Kingdom really doesn't have a larger fan base than other countries... And if the "fan" base would so easily complain about things like this, then I doubt they are very good fans.

If that was my intention, I would be saying "NETHERLANDS HAS BIGEST FANBASE U SUCK," but I didn't. It was one of the arguments as to why this makes England so very upset, and I'm trying to point out the contrary, not vainly saying my or any other country in specific has the biggest fan base...

Itīs fun to *****er posts. Now with corrections!


The new AC game has upset a lot of people in England as in the new game youīre just killing them, mainly American and English people buy this game and so a lot of people in England are not going to buy the AC3, Ubisoft really shouldn't make games that upset the main people that are going to buy it.

Right, first up, game companies donīt give jack sh.it about the UK as a prospective market anymore. Second, like many have already said, there are other countries (i.e. BRIC countries) that buy these games a lot more. So learn your facts, ret.ard. Try and expand your knowledge- Donīt worry, we can help you.


I really want Ubisoft to see this and take it in account. Next time don't do this. No one wants to kill their own side. Do you think it will be funny if I made a game that you go round killing Americans and showing how much better we are? No so don't do it again.

Boo hoo, you canīt take killing your "own side"? Not to mention pixelated versions of your own side? How about you grow some balls and then come back?


Man, some people are weak in the head. And seriously, youīre English (I hope) but the spelling mistakes you make are ridiculous. Also, if you had the attention span to actually listen, UBi have STATED that this is not ABOUT the War; the war is just a backdrop. Connor will be killing people from both sides. It sucks for you that you donīt have the patience to wait till E3. It sucks for you that you just have to bow and suck it. Your people are getting killed? IN A GAME?! Germans, Russians, Italians, Turks, Greeks, French, Middle Easterns arenīt complaining, why should you? No country is THAT important that a game company should listen to them; the UK certainly isnīt at the moment. God, youīre pathetic.

Yes some people are upset, however it is not the whole of England... Or even the UK...


Locking thread due to being a repeat..
