Reminder: Real Pirates Were Awful

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.

This is why I thought one of those earlier AC4 trailers was so weird. "For a brief, shining moment in history, some men were truly free", or something like that.

Where "shining moment in history" involves lots of theft, murder, rape, and disease, I guess.
