I have the bad tendency of being a cynic at times but there is no cynicism to be found when it comes to what I have seen from ACIII so far. It looks like the next contender for My favorite game of all time.

Omg why did I not think of that? That is such a good idea. I bet they will do that.

To be honest though, I'm not sure if that would tie in with the Assassin motives though. Because the Templars (who were leaders of America, Germany, Britain, and Russia at the time) did start WW2 together.

But possibly the Assassins saw the Revolutionary War as a necessary thing, if they did think that the British Empire was being too controlling of the colonies.

I think it would work out because the reason for the shot was because the British were coming to disarm the militia (that was not allowed to exist) and take their arms but instead someone fired a shot but I believe no British were actually killed. Just a couple colonials were killed. I also believe that the shot was said to have come from a small pistol which Connor just so happens to have so it would even fit in historically. That would be awesome in my opinion if he fired the shot that started the battle at Lexington which pushed the war into gear.

That sounds perfect. When did the war start again?

I'm stoked. I didn't think I would be excited about America, but seeing the concept art has me excited. I've always like the movie "The Patriot" and Mel Gibson's character, "The Ghost", looks very similar to the concept of Connor. I've always wanted a game where I could play in that time period with a sweet set of melee weapons -- and now I get it from my favorite franchise.

Well that shot was fired in 1775 and the game takes place between 1753(which I assume is the year Connor was born) until 1781 I believe. The war officially ended in 1783 with the treaty of Paris.

Right, the Boston Massacre fueled what later became the Revolution but so did many other things. I hesitate to call it a massacre though as only 5 people were killed because someone through a snowball at a British officer. This game is going to be so awesome!

lol it doesn't and I think what happened is that someone caught the British soldier off guard and he fired a shot and then a couple others just followed suit since they were marching into a town of hecklers and John Adams who is the one who wrote about how terrible the massacre was, was the lawyer who basically got them off because he knew he over exaggerated the events and I don't think he wanted to see the soldiers get hung for it but yea 5 people were shot in the riot and I believe one of them was a former slave. I could be wrong on that though.

John Adams, the 2nd President and co-writer of the Declaration, was the lawyer that defended the soldiers and got them acquitted. Because the soldiers were facing a mob and the mob was instigating a riot with stones and pitchforks. And indeed, may have even been the ones who fired the first shot.

The mob had no guns, this is the Boston Massacre, not the battle at Lexington.

Well you do have to place it in the context of history. Things didn't go the way they do now with the authorities. If there was unrest, generally the authorities would crack down hard.

Well, a few did have guns, and John Adams actually proved in court that the first shot came from behind the soldiers... and they panicked and started firing. It was several hundred grown men with pitchforks and rocks and about a dozen British... I mean, you have to understand, the British soldiers were probably the ones the most scared --- standing there facing hundreds of violent people throwing rocks at them.

Given John Adams history of patriotism; he wouldn't have defended the British soldiers if he didn't feel that the fight had been provoked.
