Assassin's Creed III Amazon Gold Box Deal of the Day

Thank you to Ubisoft for sponsoring this post. Please visit Amazon.com to get your own copy of Assassin's Creed 3, today's Gold Box Deal of the Day! I was selected for this opportunity as a member of Clever Girls Collective. All opinions are my own.

Hello, my name is Kristin and I'm a secret gamer.  Yes, I know I am a mom of 3 kids and you wouldn't typically expect someone like me to play video games.  However, I think the stereotypical "gamer" persona is changing and more and more people are coming into the gaming world now more than ever.
Growing up I played the original Super Nintendo with my older siblings (I am the youngest of 6 kids).  I always loved playing.  Then in college when I met my husband I had seen him play video games with his roommates and friends, but had not thought much of it.  As I got to know him more, I found out that he had grown up playing video games for most of his life and they were definitely something he loved.  I dabbled in playing some of the games with him, but it wasn't until after we were married and after I got pregnant with my first child that I really started to play.  It was rough nights and a horrible pregnancy that lead me to pick up the old XBOX controller.  Honestly, I found it one of the most powerful distractions to my incredible sickness and pain that I endured in pregnancy.  It helped me escape my pregnancy blues and have some fun. I started playing the fun, cute-sy LEGO series games sticking to what I viewed as "girl-safe" games.  But sitting watching my husband play shooter games and role-playing games, I decided it would be so much more fun if we could do it together versus me just sitting and watching him.  Honestly, I completely SUCKED when I first started playing these more challenging types of games.  But the more I played, the better I got (I may even beat him once and awhile...lol).  One of the games we both love playing is Assassin's Creed.  We owned multiple Assassin's Creed games, but it wasn't until Assassin's Creed Revelations came out and he showed me this trailer, that I became interested in playing it for myself--Check out this video: 

COOL, right!  Well, the game is just as amazing!  You are playing this character Desmond, who has a blood-line of assassins in his ancestory.  Using a device, you go back into memories of past assassin's like Ezio and Altair to complete tasks and keep their people safe from evil.  It's really quite amazing at all of the incredible detailing found within the Assassin's Creed games.  It almost feels like you are in a movie.  Now with the arrival of Assassin's Creed 3, both my husband and I are thrilled for a chance to play the newest addition to the series.  This time, the game is set in the late 1700's with the revolutionary war taking place.  Connor, an assassin has sworn to secure liberty for his people and his nation and will make sure nothing stands in his way. Take a look at the Assassin's Creed III trailer:

Lastly just look at this picture:
Talk about a lady-killer!  I think guys want to be him and girls want to be with him.

So, for a great holiday gift for the gamer or in my case secret gamer in your life...get Assassin's Creed III.
