How about we just ignore them and not stoop down to their levels eh? And lets discuss things which are actually important...like WTF does Eddie have blond hair.

"Well this is sad indeed. Yeah this IS a game, and the game is adult rated. Can't say about others but I certainly won't go whaling after playing this game. I'm well aware of the problem of whaling and I don't support it in any way but you know what? I'm gonna have fun hunting some virtual whales in the game because that's exactly what it is: a game.

Oh and please get down the high horses of yours, you think only people protesting this game have ethics? Jeez.."

Mine:

I'm sorry....I didn't know whales were close to extinction in a VIDEO GAME. If you want to stop the extinction of whales get away from your computers/phones and join Sea Sheppard. *****ing about a video game does absolutely no good about a real life issue. It's not like we are all going to go to Japan and jump on a whaling ship because it was in a game we play. Go DO something about if you want... instead of complaining to Ubisoft. While we are at it....complaining about Rats didn't change anything and neither will this.

I'm an animal lover myself, but PETA is going overboard. AC4 is a historically based game so it's not surprising whale hunting is included. It was part of the times. What? Do they want Edward to dive into the water and hug the whales instead? We need to learn from the past, not just cover it up and ignore it. Those who ignore it are doomed to repeat it. Ubisoft can easily put in a piece of dialogue in the modern day story that condones whale hunting and explains that hunting by those like Edward has resulted in the near extinction of whales today. It would not remove whale hunting while also pointing out how destructive it has been in the last 300 years. I very much doubt whale hunting in the game will be too realistic since hunting and skinning animals in AC3 wasn't. In reality, not every snare kills small animals. Not every arrow or bullet takes larger animals down in 1-2 hits, either. Sometimes you have to snap their necks or slice their throats. Not something Ubisoft depicted. So not like our pixel whales will suffer. Ubisoft is not cruel hearted when it comes to hunting. In the end, it is a game with some historical (and thus educational) value.

Have to wonder if most of PETA has had a lobotomy. >.> Or if they all live in a fish bowl. They try to get people to stop doing things to animals, but all they do is cause the opposite reaction in many people. They're making things worse, not better.

So am I. I even did some low-level activities for the local PETA group way back when..

But gotta admit this is not surprising. Over the years PETA has become known for these kind of rabble rousing. They don't actually benefit any animals and spend most of their tie screaming. If they did some actual animal welfare work more people would be willing to join them.


They try to get people to stop doing things to animals, but all they do is cause the opposite reaction in many people. They're making things worse, not better.

Nailed it. By this kind of attitude they are doing a disservice to their cause. It will push people further away, not make them sympathize.

Well, it's nice to see the good people at PETA understand what the Assassin's Creed series is about. Killing the evil corporate whales.

The problem with PETA is a philosophical one. At their roots they believe in equality of species. I (along with many of us here) am a speciesist. Like a racist, but not... You see, what I'm deeming as less than me is not the same as me (like someone of another race who is the same, as in the same species), therefore lesser animals are not equal to me, because of so many things. While it is VERY important to preserve nature, to protect habitats and our planet, it is also important to look out for ourselves. If I have to choose between killing a wild animal and killing a child, it will be the animal. To compare atrocities committed against animals to atrocities committed against humans is asinine.

Couldn't disagree more. What makes you think we are superior to animals and deserve to be here more. Without humans the world would be a much better place. We are the biggest vermin on the planet. Having said that, PETA are being ridiculous.

Maybe someone should tell them about Moby ****? Make them start a campaign against that book maybe even trying to get it banned. Let’s see how that turns out.

Re FB issues - please refrain from posting things to inflame them further - if you can - the last thing we need is PETA making an announcement about an organised Ubisoft attack on them...

This can be really easily resolved, they should just patch out all the animals and replace them with humans. Maybe adjust the hunting challenges slightly.
