RAD episode: Assassins Creed:Rogue


RAD-Rogue

Uphold the principles of our Order, and all for that for which we stand. Never share our secrets nor divulge the true nature of our work. Do so until death — whatever the cost. This is my new creed. I am Shay Patrick Cormac. Templar of the Colonial… of the American Rite. I am an older man now, and perhaps wiser. A war and a revolution have ended, and another is about to begin. May the Father of Understanding guide us all

Well, we once again find ourselves donning our assassins hidden blades lurking amongst the shadows.

In this last RAD of 2014, we return to the world of templars and assassins but this time we have to ask ourselves, are we on the right side of the war?
Shay Patric Cormac is an assassin who turns templar in Assassins Creed:Rogue and it takes a look at man who has to not just question his loyalties but perhaps do so to save the world. Mike “The Birdman” Dodd examines this entry in this series and see where it stacks up against the previous games and where it fits into history of the world.
Can betrayal be done for the best of intents?
Who makes an appearance from previous games and how have they changed?
