Even so, it's about AC anyway! It just provides greater depth to some seemingly-insignificant objects in the game and makes the AC universe just that little bit more real/interesting Smile

awesome you are now the offical THB information assassin!!

To be fair, you have to have a very high IQ to understand Rick and Morty. The humor is extremely subtle, and without a solid grasp of theoretical physics most of the jokes will go over a typical viewer's head. There's also Rick's nihilistic outlook, which

I second this. When Revelations comes out and I have questions about any of the items or clothing in the game, I'm asking you what it all means!

i'm curious about the text on tomatoes. it says they originated in South America and came across after the Spanish settled.
at the time of ACB, had the Americas been discovered yet?

Let's see...I think the rhyme goes: "Columbus sailed the ocean blue in fourteen hundred and ninety-two".

So if I remember that correctly, they were JUST being discovered at the end of AC2. But that would be North America. Did the Spanish land in South America before that?

Columbus landed in San Salvador Island, also known as Watling, one of the main islands of Barbados in October of 1492 for the first time.
The events in Brotherhood start in 1499-1500, and Columbus first reached the coast of Venezuela in 1498, and later in a subsequent trip in 1499. Still, records show that the tomato didn't reach Europe until 1540 when the Spanish took it.

So there you got you're little inconsistencies.
