Radio Boston 1775

Yesterday I went into WBUR, Boston’s top-ranked public radio station, to share my impressions of the preview of Assassin’s Creed III, a videogame being released at the end of October.

Here’s a link to the radio segment, and here’s the preview video from UbiSoft that we refer to.

My thanks to host Anthony Brooks, special correspondent Rachel Gotbaum, and all the staff I met for a fun time. Once the game comes out, I invite folks who actually play videogames to send me a review.

Enjoyed your Radio Boston review of the Boston-based Assasins Creed. Overall I agree with your assessment of the cityscape, although I did see some federal-period or later architectural details (e.g. louvered exterior shutters) here and there and there were some things off with the redcoats' kits besides their hair. And the rigging and masts was really rather poorly done. Still quite cool, though!
