I am truly sadden by this. I honestly don't know how to put it into words. I've been a fan and member of Giant Bomb for years. Their light hearted and fun take on one of my favorite hobbies has been a staple for me - for a very long time. The site has helped me when I get really bad lows (from my clinical "massive" depression that I've been battling for years). I'm just seriously shocked to my core. This site really do feel like friends to me. Even though we've never met. RIP, duder.
Sadly I'm one of the (seemingly few) people that LOVED AC3 and Ratohnhaké:ton as a character. I loved the wilderness and climbing in 1700's Boston. I loved hunting animals and climbing trees and cliff sides. Spent hours exploring the wilds and wanted more.
I would love to see more of this setting, its unique and interesting. Japan or China would be really boring. Maybe take it to Central/South America? Aztecs or Inca. BEFORE any Europeans came.
