Assassin’s Creed 3 is a third person action adventure platforming assassination/history game from Ubisoft Montreal.  I had pre-ordered the game for PS3 from EB Games when they first offered it, but something about the game information that was being leaked, my opinions of EB Games, and my growing dislike of “owning” physical media for an outdated system made me cancel it.  That said I recently renewed my Game Access subscription specifically to rent these kinds of games that I find myself playing once and then never again.  I had wanted…read more
