I'm only 9 minutes in, but he's made a lot of good points about the malleability of the creed and how different assassins interpret it.

Some things I've tried to articulate before but never put so neatly.

Also explains why he thinks Desmond made an Assassin choice at the end of AC3, not a Templar one. Thinking about it now, I agree. To choose to sacrifice so many just so you alone can be in control of the future of humanity? Or to give everyone a fighting chance to be free, even if it means a little chaos is introduced in the form of Juno.

It's a very Templar thing to feel you have the right to decide the fate of an innumerable amount of people.

As he says, the AC3 ending could have made that more obvious by presenting exactly what was happening with Juno at the end of AC3. She didn't instantly gain control of the world, or even get a physical body. she's trapped in machines, building her strength and preparing to set her plans in motion.

Sad to hear that they cut the planned "AC:1 types of investigations and assassinations" for the last 3 targets. Would have been a nice addition, and probably a better way for Roberts to go down.

A mission based around investigations came back in Freedom Cry, so they did manage to get a chance to test it out again!

I really liked listening to this podcast. Lots of cool information and discussion. BTW, do any of you know what is usually discussed on this podcast, when they don't have a guest like Darby? I might listen some more in the future.

They've had writers and voice actors and community developers from Assassin's Creed on. You may recall the one post-launch of Revelations, where one of the writers explained how the Lucy reveal got pushed into the DLC.

Just prior to this they interviewed Adewale's voice actor, and last year Connor and Haytham's, among others.

I loved the Haytham podcast. They made him say several awesome lines from the game (and some funny ones from memes and such) in Haytham's voice. Very funny.

that one was cool, but I think the Connor one was my fav of all the VO guys they've had on.
