the new assassin’s creed looks great
>White stubbly guys.
Right. Because all the assassins have been white.
Altair? Middle Eastern.
Conner? Native American.
Aveline? Black female pirate.
Adewale? Black slave who leads revolution against slave owners.
So very White. From what I’ve researched, only three (Ezio, Desmond, and Arno) are White.
Arno is French (WOAH, a FRENCH guy in the FRENCH revolution!? YOU DON’T FUCKING SAY!?)
Edward Kenway was Welsh (colonial piracy) and Ezio Auditore de Firenze was Italian (Italian Renaissance).
None of the SJW’s complaining about Assassin’s Creed know what the fuck they’re talking about. Period.
I missed Edward. Damn. So, basically it’s split 50/50.
You could say that… but Ubisoft went to different time periods and chose characters who were likely to fit those demographics.
They haven’t done anything wrong as far as I’m concerned.
I feel the same way. I was just trying to show that there’s no basis in calling them racist when the races are split evenly between white and non-white.
Okay hopefully this isn’t actually going to be a problem but… long story short, if I can’t work something out with my asshole roommate I might have to find a place for my cat to stay for the next 2 months until our lease is up in August. I’m afraid he’s going to take her to the pound when I leave for work if I don’t… and I fucking saved her from having to go to the pound to begin with, I don’t want to let her go back there now.
Anyway.. I know I have some followers who live in orange county. If it comes down to it, I’m hoping I can find someone I know (or at least kind of know) who can take care of my cat for 2 months… I can provide the food/litter box/kitty litter and some toys and would love to come visit her when I can. I’d also come get her to take her to get her shots when she needs them… But I don’t know if I can keep her at my apartment and I’m not going to if it runs the risk of something happening to her.
She’s a little black cat who’s about 10 weeks old. She’s cuddly and a complete sweetheart (and gets along with other animals, based on the little bit of experience she’s had with them… she’s just really scared of them at first). She’s great with people. She’s a kitten so she can be kind of… mean. She bites and scratches at you because she hasn’t learned that that’s not how you’re supposed to play yet… so you’d have to be understanding about that.
I’m really worried about what I’m going to do. I don’t think any of my friends nearby are in situations where they can take her, and she’s a complete sweetheart who I love to death. Which is why I really, really don’t want to keep her in an unsafe situation.
If anyone lives nearby and is in a position where they can keep my cat at their place for a couple months (and give her the love and attention she needs) please let me know. I’d really really appreciate it.
Times are changing. Children do not respect their video games and everybody’s making a MOBA.
Some tweets calling Ubisoft out on their bullshit.
You all seem to be forgetting that Ubisoft is a business. They aren’t making games to like, support political movements and/or cause world peace. They’re doing it to make a profit. They don’t just have to add “boob physics” and shit to a model to make it female. Male and female bodies do not work the same way. It’s not that they don’t know how females work, it’s that all of that shit was already done for a male lead in the other games. They’d need entirely new animations for.. everything. Running, standing, swimming, fighting different ways with different weapons, climbing, jumping… the list goes on. And not only is that expensive, but it takes a lot of time… which is also more money. From a business standpoint (and that is what Ubisoft is), that’s a perfectly viable excuse to not have a female lead. The Assassin’s Creed games have always been wonderful, another game with a male lead isn’t going to change that. You should be glad they even made an effort to create a female lead, since a lot of other franchises wouldn’t even consider it. Like.. I can understand being mildly disappointed. But this shitshow is completely unwarranted. Fuck.
