Assassin’s Creed 3 is out on the console, and like its predecessors it’s actually kind of buggy in spite of thorough quality assurance testing.
Don’t get us wrong—it’s perfectly playable, and it’s a great game, but like so many other new games it suffers from a host of glitches that serve as minor amusements rather than detracting from the game as a whole. We’re happy to note that in spite of these bugs, the game remains one of the more polished titles out there. We can’t imagine what the game would be like without Ubisoft’s massive efforts into polishing the game.
That being said, the glitches are what they are, and demand that someone (that’s us!) curates them, if only to show you the kind of experiences “transmedia experiences” (that is to say, videogames) can offer that no other medium can. You wouldn’t see this in a theater or read it in a book.
Assassin’s Creed 3 is currently out for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. A PC version will be released in November.

These horses seem to have minds of their own and don’t seem to care where the hell they’re going. No fucks were given that day.
The game appears to have spawned a horse into wooden post, which kind of reminds us of the Henry & Aaron “It’s a snap” ad for an Australian university.
As per the previous video, there’s even a way to get this bug to occur. This should prove useful material for the folks at Ubisoft.
This door doesn’t seem particularly cooperative, allowing enemies an easy kill in multiplayer.
It’s the same glitch as before, but this time, the horse appears to be humping the fence.
Horses aren’t the only things that can get stuck in the environment.
This British redcoat has moves that would give Michael Jackson a run for his money.
Do you think getting launched into space in Skyrim is funny? It happens in Assassin’s Creed 3, too.
There’s nothing more humiliating than an Assassin stuck in a tree.
A book floats when it shouldn’t, as its being held by an invisible Ben Franklin who apparently invented an invisibility potion.
