Assassin’s Creed 3 trailer may shock the sensitive viewer

Assassins Creed 3

I’ve seen some deplorable acts in my time: a man walk right by a queue at the train station, a woman turning down the corner of a page in a library book, and, I even once saw a bouncer letting innocent people in Oceana. Yet nothing prepared me for what I saw in the new Assassin’s Creed trailer.

Entry to the video is barred to any not made of stern stuff.

All that tea wasted. And for what? The independence of a single nation? Has America really achieved so much in its 200 years of independence that makes such a wanton act worth it?

I thought not.

That’s the subtext of Steve’s preview. It’s just very, very subtext.
