Making a pleasant change from the usual pre-release drivel, Ubisoft has teamed up with VICE to make a series of short documentaries about the golden age of piracy. So that when you're playing Assassin's Creed IV, you can... I don't know, appreciate the piracy some more.
Really, though, screw the game. They're just great little clips to watch regardless of your interest in Assassin's Creed, because while third-person combat may not be your thing, piracy is everyone's thing.
