5 funny Assassin’s Creed III glitches

If you’ve ever played Assassin's Creed III you may have noticed that it suffers from the occasional glitch. While glitches can be a nuisance for the player, for everyone else they can be a source of much entertainment. With this in mind, we thought we’d compile five of the funniest Assassin’s Creed III glitches we could find, for your entertainment.

1. The Bionic Jump

I don’t get it. Please explain the glitch to me: The bit where the man goes up into the sky isn’t meant to happen. What’s meant to happen is that he just stabs everyone without going up into the sky. The going into the sky bit is the glitch.

2. Unusual horse

I don’t get it. Please explain the glitch to me: You probably noticed the unusual behaviour of the horse. If you didn’t, try watching the clip again and keep your eye on the horses -- one of them is more unusual than the others because it is behaving in an unusual manner. The unusual horse is the glitch. It should be behaving like the other horses, just standing around and being more horse-like.

3. Amusing arm animation

I don’t get it. Please explain the glitch to me: Ask your dad.

    Kinda like the audio better with glitch in video #5, sounds almost like a Photek song.

    I saw something weird near a pivot on the beach: A person run out of the forest, ran over a rock, and then dived head first into the ocean disappearing. I had that "fapping glitch" (where Connor repeatedly equips and sheaths the tomahawk) before but it was in an Independence Hall cutscene, so just distracting.

    Oh so when two girls kiss in a game it's fine but when the main character vigorously gets off another man in a game it's a glitch? Real culturally sensitive of you GR. :/

    Thank you for explaining the glitches to me GR, I would have been lost and confused without your careful descriptions!

    Man that horse really went to town on poor wooden object. I think the horse just confused and a little bit wood-curious. The horse was just a lonely piece of code and the wood object looked so inviting and it promised not to judge. One day he/she will look back and joke about his/her wood phase.

    Guess those father figure issues finally caught up to Connor...
