Right Lads! I'm taking over this joint!
For now I'm stealing Dovers op (Yar!) but I will be making some changes to it over the next few days.
Assassin's Creed Series Discussion
As we all enjoy the game, please make sure to keep story and event spoilers in "spoiler tags" so to not ruin the game for anyone else.
The Assassin's Creed series, developed by Ubisoft, debuted in 2007 with the original Assassin's Creed for the Xbox 360 and Playstation 3. Players assumed the role of Desmond Miles, a modern day fellow who just happens to have a genetic assassin ancestor in his past. Using a machine called the Animus, Desmond is able to view and control his ancestor, an assassin by the name of Altair. Combining elements of stealth, action, science-fiction, and (partially) historical accurate references, AC was a commercial success for Ubisoft and work for a sequel was placed underway.
Assassin's Creed II launched in November of 2009, once again for the Xbox 360 and Playstation 3. The sequel had players still playing as Desmond, but controlling a different assassin ancestor by the name of Ezio. AC2 added new gameplay elements such as swimming, riding horses and boats, and the introduction of Leonardo da Vinci who invents a bunch of devices for Ezio to use.
Riding upon the success of ACII, Ubisoft released follow-up games, Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood and Revelations in 2010 and 2011. Both AC:B and AC:Rev are sequels in story to AC2 with players once again controlling the assassin Ezio. The difference this time around is that Ezio can recruit other assassins to work for him in his struggles against the Templars. Finally, AC:B is also the first game in the series to feature a multiplayer mode in which players are hunting targets while avoiding being targeted themselves.
Assassin's Creed III. The game takes place during the Revolutionary War and features a new protagonist, Conner. Hunt down Red Coats (and some Blue Coats) and find out what the Templars have been up to for the last couple hundred years.
Assassin's Creed IV takes our stabbing onto the high seas. Take control of Captain Edward Kenway, pirate captain and the newest protagonist.

If you are friends on Uplay you share and get access to special discoveries (treasure chests, special fishing spawns, royal convoys that are worth a lot of $$$ so do it). If you want to be added to this list post your uplay id in the thread with @Morninglord
You can speed/heal your friends ships in the Kenway Fleet minigame! Be a PA Bro and make a habit of checking friends ships before you exit.
(Original credit for the initial compiling of this list is Risen Phoenix, alas he fell victim to the Dread Pirate Morninglords evil plundering ways. Yar! Seriously though thanks for that, you saved me a lot of work.)
Stuff you can do in this game as demonstrated by yours truly:
Capturing a Man o War (I completely ran out of bullets and consumables prior which is why I only use the sword.)
A stealth video that shows off the highlighting in eagle vision feature.
An example of a few of the new items (berserk darts which drive enemies crazy and make them attack allies, your "gun kata" and a sleep dart)
Freedom's Cry DLC
Once you've downloaded this you have to select it via the top right box of the main menu. If you have Aveline the image will be unchanged, so click it and select Freedom's Cry from the sub menu. If you don't have Aveline it will have a Freedom's Cry image.
(PSN: Morninglord) (Steam: Morninglord) (WiiU: Morninglord22) I like to record and toss up a lot of random gaming videos here.
