When we first meet Connor Kenway, he’s perched on a tree in the middle of a thick, snow-covered forest. This is the Frontier; a vast area of countryside that connects the game’s two main cities, Boston and New York. It’s bigger than the entirety of Brotherhood’s Rome, and densely packed with trees, mountains, rivers, camps, and forts.

Ralf has gained a reputation as something of a miracle worker since joining Royal Children’s Hospital, in Melbourne, Australia. The selfless pooch walks the wards and looks in on his young patients every Monday. He even sits with some during gruelling chemotherapy therapy…
It’s wonderful creatures like Ralf that make me wonder how anyone in their right mind could abuse an animal.
Gamers are picked on for not having "lives." This, of course, is a misconception. Firstly, many of us retain social lives with actual people. Secondly, those who criticize us don't understand. Gaming can be an escape; like a book or story that you play through instead of read. Sometimes the life you lead out in the real world doesn't seem to have much meaning. You go through all the normal motions of being part of society without feeling very fulfilled or important to those around you.. Maybe being a Grey Warden, or Dragonborn, or the Hero of Time feels more fulfilling; you live a true life of adventure and all your actions effect the fate of the world around you. It's not that we don't have lives because we do. And we're thoroughly unsatisfied with experiences they offer.
