Man, it's gotta be tough being a pirate. There are certain expectations of you that you just have to live up to. Even if you have a little lady at home that you love more than the world, you probably still have to have some extramarital relations. For the sake of appearances, of course.

That's the problematic scenario that Edward Kenway, Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag's protagonist, finds himself in. In an interview with Polygon, Darby McDevitt, the game's lead scriptwriter, explains that Kenway's struggles to stay faithful will play a central theme in the overall narrative.

McDevitt teases that "Edward Kenway is a raucous and bawdy chap, but he's also a married man, and one of his primary motivation in Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag is to get rich and prove himself a ‘man of quality' to his family and betters. So there is a special woman in Edward's life, but there are also other not-so-special women as well." McDevitt also confirmed that Kenway would have a few other significant intimate relationships in the game, including with lady-pirate Anne Bonny.

It seems as if Kenway has a very tenuous grasp on the term "man of quality." His romantic pursuits sound like the type of thing that need to be sorted out by Maury. Who knows how many little assassin babies are running around thanks to him?

Impressions: Assassin's Creed IV (Xbox One and PS4)

Assassin's Creed IV, point blank, may be the best game in the series outside of AC II. It offers the least amount of real-world trappings for those fans who dislike the sci-fi overarching plot and it features the only true op...more

This Assassin's Creed IV glitch is totally next-gen

Before you watch this video, know that you're more or less obligated to enjoy it. A lot of good men died for this glitch. If you can't squeeze a paltry morsel of pleasure out of it, then they died in vain, and you're a monster. A monster that deserves to be banished to the depths of wherever the hell the Jackdaw just came from.more

You can now play Assassin's Creed IV in 1080p on PS4

Ubisoft has given out notice that the promised Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag update for 1080p and better anti-aliasing is now available for download on PlayStation 4. It's still something of a shock to my system that such functionality has to come in the form of a title update, but when RAM requirements are being lowered through patches, anything's possible!
