[livejournal.com profile] sartorias linked to this article and video about a 3D computer rendering of 17th century London, before the Great Fire, and I have watched Toby play TOO DAMN MUCH Assassin's Creed, because all I can see is how fantastic that setting would be to jump around roofs and assassinate people in.

(Think of all the 16th and 17th historical figures and conspiracies that would go in it!)

Man, Toby's getting tired of elk coming through and trampling his rabbit snares.

Toby got Assassin's Creed III and is playing the beginning sequences now. Walking on the docks in Boston, we accidentally discovered you can step on wharf rats and squish them.

Also a British soldier pushed Tony as he was petting a dog, and when Toby tried to punch him, the game locked up with the camera focused right on the soldier's crotch.

A good start, all in all.

Toby's going to get Assassin's Creed 3 and spend Thanksgiving playing it. I came across an image today of the newest assassin...You want to see this. Even if you don't play )

I have to say that the Duchess of Devonshire's Gossip Guide to the 18th Century wasn't the blog where I expected to run across Assassin's Creed III news.

And why does the game starring what looks like a kickass woman of color have to be on a device that our household does not own, instead of one of the approximately one billion devices we do? I shall remain in the dark as to how her tricorn stays on during her Leaps of Faith.*

Assassin's Creed for the Kinect!

We lost it at the running-in-circles at the loading screen bit. XD

For you non-gamers, let's just say Assassin's Creed is the epitome of games you DO NOT want to be acting out. :) (And when the next section of the game is loading, you can control the main character, but you can't do much, so everyone just makes him run in circles to stave off boredom for the 15-20 second or so it takes to load.)

I originally downloaded this book when I still thought I might be participating in Yuletide this year, and between watching [livejournal.com profile] myrialux play Assassin's Creed 2 and Assassin's Creed 2: Brotherhood for hours, Wikipedia, and this book (not to mention [livejournal.com profile] myrialux's offer to replay any sections that contained plot that might be missing from the other places), I'd have enough of a working knowledge to be able to commit fic. As things stand, I'm not participating this year -- and given the amount of stuff I have to do in the next week and how far behind I am on it, that was a Very Good Idea -- but I'm idly reading a few pages here and there.

(I'll add here that when we were in Barnes & Noble, I pointed out the novelization to [livejournal.com profile] myrialux and a man standing next to us said "That's actually really good," which was another factor in my going ahead and purchasing it. Was he correct...? Read on to see.)Read more... )
