Started playing this yesterday as it finally came out for PC... Yeah, the Colonial America setting is every bit as bland and underwhelming as I was expecting. I think I spent a good 20 minutes trying to master one of the board games on the ship before I told myself "Dude, this is an Assassin's Creed game. Stop this and go kill some shit."
Still playing as Connor's dad, and is it just me, or does he vaguely remind anyone else of Roger Moore? Seeing Boston during different seasons sort of reminded me of Mafia II. And I was rather impressed how you leave trails through the snow out in the countryside. Probably the most realistic handling of snow I've seen in a game. Am I able to find any more almanac pages at this point or just the four Franklin told me about?
