It's completely optional.

Also find it funny it's fine killing people apparently, but whales? Oh my.

1. It's a game, PETA or WWF won't be after you.

2. I'm guessing you haven't played AC3 there is a lot of hunting in that game.

3. AC games aren't for the faint hearted, animal loving gamer. btw.

4. The animals are made out of polygons, they don't exist anyway so no worries.

Mostly this ^
I like animals too (except dam insects and select arachnids -_-) but I don't necessarily feel bad since it's only a game.

You never had to kill a whale. That wasn't part of any of the story missions.

Considering I didn't specifically aim it at anybody, I thought it would be assumed it was meant for OP.

You haven't killed any whales becouse they are not real, it is a game and the same can be said about every human in the game to, so there is absolutely no reason to be disgusted with your self.

4. The animals are made out of polygons, they don't exist anyway so no worries.You know what else is made out of polygons? Connor, you can't hate or love polygons duuuude.

Also it's only a whale, a cat, dog or kangaroo I could understand, but not this big fat thing.

What will we do with a drunken whaler, early in the morning
Stuff him in a sack and throw him over
feed him to the hungry rats for dinner
shoot him through the heart with a loaded pistol
slice his throat with a rusty cleaver

etc

Sorry, just some slight stereotyping there and I apologise. Apologies to any Koreans or Aussies hurt by that comment. If anyone -does- want to come back at me, I'm gay so there's some free ammunition.

Ubisoft should've added this song as a sea shanty just to piss off PETA.. :p

Maybe PETA should worry about whales that are actually being hunted and killed in Indonesia and other countries in Oceania and not whales that are being killed in a video game.

Indeed - completely optional to the story ;)

Damn skippy. Instead of going off on games they should... But NO ONE ever stated they had any brains. They're nuttier than squirrel poo.

You need clam down.. you already know the reasons why I get annoyed so why do you insist to try to insult me when you should know better..

I'm always calm as a cucumber :cool:: but.. see this is the thing. 1) I wasn't insulting you, only making a silly joke on him. Surely the Mighty Connor Fangirl Club would allow us the civility of making a few harmless jokes on him? 2) You =/= Him, you are real (well, hopefully) , he is pixeleted. Like you said, that means no harm done even if he does get insulted right? ;)

The first reply really covered everything that needed to be said.

I actually named the first White Whale I found. "Fredrick McBlubberkins". I was so excited when the icon showed up "congratulations you found a white whale!" But then I could not bring myself to kill it.

I murdered countless other whales but not Fredrick. The problem is that he appears everywhere around the map, so my crew keeps on urging me to kill him. But I wont. I dont care about the upgrades.


The sad part about this post is that it is 100% true in every way.


Btw in regards to the whole Connor fight. Connor IS a potato, and he is my potato. And i love him. Ezio is lasagna, and Altair is greek salad.

Potatoes are awesome guys. Its a compliment.

That thread honestly deserves a place in the Ubi Hall of Fame along with the Wondering the testicles thread.
