    Default Ubisoft responds to peta's complaint

    “Whaling — that is, shooting whales with harpoons and leaving them to struggle for an hour or more before they die or are hacked apart while they are still alive-may seem like something out of the history books, but this bloody industry still goes on today in the face of international condemnation, and it’s disgraceful for any game to glorify it.” -Peta


    "History is our playground in Assassin's Creed. Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag is a work of fiction that depicts the real events during the golden era of pirates. We do not condone illegal whaling, just as we don't condone a pirate lifestyle of poor hygiene, plundering, hijacking ships, and over-the legal-limit drunken debauchery." - Ubisoft

    It looks like peta got Ubisofts attention by complaining that you can harpoon a whale in the next assassins creed game...... I have a feeling peta is just getting bored

    Of all things, why complain about that? IT'S A VIDEO GAME! It has no affect on real life. If it did, that would be awesome, but it doesn't.
    If his comment is suggesting that it will encourage whaling, then what about Call of Duty? What about Battlefield? Does that not encourage young kids to go kill? Does that not affect there brain development? If anything whaling is better then killing people. At least killing a whale would take money, you only need your hands to kill someone. All in all, there's a reason these games are T and M. I do not mind if 14-15+ play games like Call of Duty and Assassin's Creed, but 12 year olds? That's ridiculous. All in all, if people are old enough to handle the game. What the issue?

    I meant the scientific side of it, though I believe it has an affect on some and not others. Lol. I personally don't care, I don't think it has that large of an affect. If I said that I did, I screwed up my post. I was in class when I was typing it so...lol
