I recently have taken to watching Twisted by Starkid a lot, and there’s a line in a song that Jafar sings that says “you remind me of someone I knew long ago; you have her eyes. You have her heart.” And I thought of it in the context that Edward met Mary Read’s daughter and lost it.
I’m not upset with Ubisoft about the whole ‘female assassin’ thing. Everyone is entitled to make mistakes and say the wrong things once in a while. And does it really take 2-3 days work to fix it? I don’t know. But what I want to see happen is them try to make up for it in a way. Unity and Comet are already in the works but if they release anything after that which doesn’t at least show signs of an attempt to make up for this blunder…that’s when I walk.
I am curious as to what would happen if Juno met GLaDOS of the Portal series.
I seriously dislike how the games just suddenly kill off important modern characters with no meaning to them. I was angered how Desmond just lifts his golden MacGuffin and gets one of the Abstergo guards to pop a cap in Vidic’s head. That, in my opinion, was unceremonious and very brutish. A would have prefered it if Desmond got all of the guards to kill themselves with the Apple, and then Desmond Assassinates him and they have the pre-death cradle speach together, and Desmond closes his eyes. As a writer, that is what I would have done.
I hope when you fight the ‘Best soldier’ guy (B: Papal R: Janissary) in Unity, I wish it was almost impossible to beat him. Even with three more. Because that would make them fearful, rather than ”Oh hey, lemme kill you, so-called Elite guard!”
Back in 2012, I wanted a DLC for Revelations. About my favorite Yusuf Tazim. About his early life, and before he met Ezio. (Or maybe until you protect Sofia). But I was disappointed when we got Lost Archive. Adewale had a DLC, why not Yusuf? I think we’ll never get it even up today. :/
Back in 2012, I was asked by my friend to choose a game that he might buy for me. I said Naruto. I know I was wrong, so I asked for AC. (Because I heard it from my classmate, he said it’s cool.) When we met at school, he handed me the game over. I never touched the game, after 4-6 Months, I never launched it, never. I even forgot I had it. But after all those time, we met at a market he said ”Oh bro, how’s the game?” Back home, I quickly installed it. It was AC: R. It’s one the best decision I have made. This has welcomed me to the Brotherhood, and the better studies of history. Now I am thanking him a lot for reminding me.
I was playing Brotherhood the other day and ended up having to use the recruits for assistance. Normally, I rarely use them since I don’t like sending them into battle because I’m always afraid one might get severely hurt and die. So I’m fighting with one of my recruits, and this guard just nails her in the head and I drop the enemy I’m dealing with to kill the guy who hit my Assassin. I’m not sure if you’re supposed to get so defensive over your recruits, but I really love my Brotherhood, and playing as Ezio, it’s kinda like you /have/ to defend them in fight.
Speaking as a female myself, I honestly hope they never entertain the idea again of having a female protagonist anywhere in the main storylines. I don’t know what it is, but I can never connect with female characters and it would take the fun away for me personally to play a female assassin.

Am I the only person who thinks that people are blowing this “no playable female” thing out of proportion? I just don’t think it’s that big of a deal. Yes, Ubisoft could have responded to the criticism better, but they have a writing team capable of making great characters, and I trust that they’ll have memorable women in the game.
So a while ago, I submitted a confession about Guy Fawkes and the November 5th incident being the plot for a game and I’ve developed my idea.
So Fawkes is an Assassin who goes rogue because he hates King James. Both the Assassins and Templars discover his plan to blow up Parliament and because he could do severe damage to both Assassins and Templars, both groups are forced to work together to stop him.
Imagine how good that would be. You could switch between different characters, one Assassin and one Templar, and it could also include some very heated dialogue and cutscenes between the two sides. Come on, Ubisoft: do it!
The first time I read John from IT’s crazy sticky notes all over the Abstergo Entertainment building, I found them ridiculous. The second time I read them, I still didn’t understand. The third time, I cried. I literally have no idea why.
Both Connor and Ezio have very special places in my heart, Connor especially. They came into my life during a period I was drifting away from my dad. We both like video games and my dad thought it would be a good idea to buy AC. Throughout AC2 our relationship got steadily closer as we were discussing what happened during our own playthroughs and during AC3, we would play together-multiplayer or backseat gaming- something we haven’t done together since my elementary school years. I even managed to get him the collectible Connor figurine for Father’s Day and he cried. Even though I’m older and can take care of myself and now my parents have just recently separated, I think back to our days playing together and the figurine he decided to leave for me and thank Connor for helping us have a better father/daughter relationship.

It’s getting annoying, but I think it’s a topic that is worthy of [civil] discussion and debate, which is why I keep publishing them.
