OK, this Hollywood Ninja thing…

…that Assassin’s Creed 2 seems to be grooving off of – seriously, look at the costume:

…anyway, since apparently this costume is now MAKING IT EASIER FOR THE GUARDS TO NOTICE ME it’d be really, really helpful if I could take the damned thing off and replace it with, I don’t know, CLOTHES THAT DO NOT SCREAM OUT “HI. I’M THE GUY THAT HAD TO RUN FROM THE EXECUTION OF MY FAMILY THIS MORNING AND JUMP INTO THE RIVER TO ESCAPE.”

I also want to take the player’s guide and use it to beat the people who wrote the player’s guide. I spent twenty bucks to have a handy cheat sheet for the PC keyboard commands. Don’t tell me “Buy an XBox controller” and expect that to be an answer.

PS: I did enjoy swaggering around Florence like a… heh, like a Renaissance Italian noble scion with a certain grand indifference for propriety. And the architecture and costumes look pretty good.

    The only parts of the Assassin’s Creed games I don’t like are the platform-jumping races. The rest of it — beautiful. Even just walking around the cities is fun.

    Plus, you have to hand it to a game that gets teenagers looking at Renaissance art and architecture…

    Moe, I hate to tell you this, but at some point you really should just buy a 360 controller. Either wired, or wireless and get the dongle that lets you use it with a PC. It’s pretty obvious that most games today are designed on the console first, and ported to PC (usually poorly) afterwards. Like fallout 3, for example. Drove me nuts with the way the camera and targeting worked, as if the whole concept of looking one direction and moving a different one was new or something. Then I had a brainstorm, plugged in a spare 360 controller, and problems went away.

    I’ve been told that DC Online, as an MMO, is the same way, in beta.
