|I'd ask for a demo of the game, but I get the feeling it'd suffer from crashing problems. |

|As long as we deliver quality... yeah... AC3, quality went straight to shit. So.. no. |
Though I have to admit that punching a shark in the face sounds funny.

|I really like the AC franchise and this looks appealing but I can't get over how much of a buggy mess AC3 was. Especially considering they were supposedly working on it for a number of years. This may be the first AC I rent instead of buy. |

|"...Edward Thatch...'' His name was TEACH, not Thatch. Probably just a mispronunciation. His English is a lot better than my French, so I'll give him the benefit of the doubt. |
On the other hand, given that they have done so much research, surely they know that Teach came from the South West UK Coast, and was not Irish. Casting problems preventing factual accuracy? I suppose I could let him have that too....
"...Walking the plank was a myth..."
Some 20th century writers have erroneously speculated that walking the plank is a myth created by cinema. The phrase "walking the plank" is recorded in English writer Francis Grose's "Dictionary of the Vulgar Tongue", which was published in 1785. Robert Louis Stevenson wasn't born until 1850. He did *NOT* invent this. It may not have been common, but it did occur.
'...ARRRR!...' Whilst this may have been popularised by movies, Edward Teach and other notable pirates of the time hailed from the South West UK, where the phrase 'Arr', rolling and hard r's are present in the local dialect. This would certainly have been a feature of Blackbeard's speech, along with any other sailors originating from the region.
When they say they used 'Historians' I'd love to know which ones. I honestly don't mind a little artistic license and historical inaccuracy, just please don't try and pass it off as fact.
Having said all that, the game does look like a lot of fun, and I'm looking forward to playing it. :)

|@8 Further to my first comment, it seems that there are a number of spellings for his surname, one of which was indeed Thatch. However, as indicated by the majority of spellings, the common acceptance of pronunciation is that of Teach. |

|Hnng this looks amazing. I didn't like AC3 as much as the previous ones because of the story and setting, but this looks amazing. |
