...plus, i've been playing nothing but sea shanties all day and my co-workers are getting that twitchy look. The smell of mutiny is in the air!

This is not a review per se (so NO spoilers! i'm only at 30%) but now that I finally got around to playing Black Flag, can I just say i'm kicking myself for not getting it on release.

Oh, my reasons were sound and logical but annoyingly in this case, unfounded. *shakes fist* You win, this time, Ubisoft.

Playing as a pirate is soooooooooooooo much fun. Almost every single one of your pirate fantasies (except, sadly, the wenching) are catered for. The only thing that could make it better (not excepting the wenching) is if you could actually be an actual trader on the other side and defend against pirates.

you hear me Ubisoft? The Creed universe/story is great n'all but dump that shit like contraband cargo and build a goddamn Age of Sail simulator!

Build it and we will come.

Quite possibly literally.*
