Assassin's Creed story blown open

360 News | Possibly not a great read if you're into the game for the story.
Ubisoft have kept pretty quiet about the storyline behind Assassin's Creed but it appears that Kristen Bell, who is doing voice work for the game, has spoiled the storyline a little bit.

During an IGN TV interview Bell stated that the storyline in the game is "actually really interesting to me, it's sort of based on the research that's sort of happening now, about the fact that your genes might be able to hold memory."

"And you could argue semantics and say it's instinct, but how does a baby bird know to eat a worm, as opposed to a cockroach, if its parents don't show it?" Yes, and how does a cat know how to get out of a bag?

"And it's about this science company trying to, Matrix-style, go into peoples brains and find out an ancestor who used to be an assassin, and sort of locate who that person is," she said of the game, for which she's doing voice work.

The cat could be out of the bag with this one. Assassin's Creed is due out for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC in March, so we'll find out if the actress spilled a little bit too much information once the title is out.

Yeah, this didn't tell anything much new if you have been paying attention though. It showed abit in the end of the X06 Gameplay Video. Another piece of the puzzle I guess. Getting so hyped up about this game.

Genes holding memory wasnt that in MGS on PSX.

The whole genes holding memory is basically a characteristic inherited from the parents. Many millions of years ago a bird with a slight behavioral mutation ate a worm, when before it no other birds ate worms. This new food was very good for the bird, and this new behavior of eating worms was passed onto its offspring. It's natural selection!

Technically speaking there's no proof genes holding memory, adaption like that is rather socialogy rather than a means gynomics. If we all had the "right" genes, would there be any idiots in the worlds, natural selection sucks.

Technically it's more logical to have more "idiots" than smart people. "Idiots" are generally the brawn of the population and that goes to the "Survival of the Fittest" part of Natural Selection. Annnnnnnnnnnnd most people go for beauty(brawn) over intelligence anyway, so it's more likely that intelligence isn't passed down the generations.

Well techically speaking if genes did carry memory, and we could influence someone's thought (yes passing moral line) then technically speaking we would we all be smart.

On topic, good that Assassin's Creed will be more than just "Kill that guy!".

Looks like Sony has employed their very own admeister....

This game is going to be a major seller for me to get a PS3 along with MGS4. Is it likely going to be a launch title if we get the PS3 in March?
