Pillage, plunder, and loot your way to success!

Ahoy! A new age of pirates!

I thought the pirate kick ended with Pirates of the Caribbean? It seems I was mistaken as there is a resurgence in pirate-themed games.

Arrrrgh you ready?

Several games are now releasing pirate theme content. Such as Guild Wars 2 and TERA. There are also new games being released centered around piracy, such as the new Assassin’s Creed. Even Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn is in on the piracy, as Limsa Lominsa is filled with former pirates and cut throats. Where is this new found age of pirates coming from? Did I miss a memo or something?

Famous game pirates

I mean sure there have been pirates popping up in video games for years. Cervantes from Soul Calibur is a prime example. Final Fantasy XII had a pretty awesome pirate named Balthier. A more recent addition to the pirates in gaming, Monkey D Luffy, in the Japanese release of Dynasty Warriors: One Piece. Classic Dynasty Warriors game play in a One Piece world, I had to buy it.

New age of piracy?

Are we going into a new age of piracy? Or is this just a passing trend? Either way get your treasure while you can!
