At Alex Myers’ excellent suggestion, we’re going to play Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood this week. Walk through the streets trying not to give yourself away as you stalk your prey, only to be backstabbed yourself when you begin to get within striking distance! Give up on subtlety and resort to ridiculous acrobatics, only to accidentally target an innocent bystander with your death-dealing leap, and then get stabbed yourself as you contemplate your sins! Mesmerize your fellow VGHVI participants with your discursion upon Huizinga’s Magic Circle, delivering a brilliant summation of your argument with a blow of your dagger! And, best of all, backstab a certain somebody who claimed that he was trading wood for a promise not to attack me with the robber in our recent Catan session only to double-cross me fifteen minutes later! (I kid, I kid, I’m sure it was an innocent mistake…)
Our usual place and time: Xbox Live this Thursday (December 12) at 9:30 EST / 6:30 PST. Please send a friends request to “malvasia bianca” if you haven’t done so already. Also, if you haven’t played the multiplayer mode before then, you might want to set aside 15 minutes to go through the game’s multiplayer introductory mission.
