    REVIEW: Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood

    Written by contributing author John Yon

    Three main games in three years time have caused some to be wary of assassin overload, that maybe such a release schedule would prematurely wear out an assassin's welcome. Though continuing on its course, Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood finally brings the trilogy’s grand adventure to an end. As a direct sequel to Assassin’s Creed 2, Brotherhood attempts to send Desmond and his ancestors off in style. Does it live up to the hype and expectations, or does the leap of faith miss its mark?

    Futuristic Cybernetic Assassin's Cameo

    Oops, look like someone got Raiden in my Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood

    An eye for an eye, and with former Assassin's Creed hero Altair appearing in Konami's Metal Gear Solid 4, it's only right to get even by throwing Metal Gear's own assassin into the world of Brotherhood. Raiden looks to be nothing more than an unlockable skin for Ezio, so don't hold your breath for unique skills and animations. Regardless, it'll be awesome tearing Rome's Borgia a new one with Raiden while patiently waiting for news on his upcoming title, Metal Gear Solid: Rising.


    Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood Hits Keep Coming

    Assassin's Creed Brotherhood continues its barrage of quality media to rally the assassin within us all, this time by way of the story trailer. This cinematic treat illustrates the measure of art game development has risen to, rivaling and even bettering most big budget movie trailers. 

    The web is weaved between our protagonist, Ezio Auditore, and his rival, head of the Templars, Cesare Borgia. Shit is about to go down. Borgia amassed an army and has taken control of Rome, so Ezio is amassing an army to free it. Cause and effect my friends, cause and effect.

    We've been told that Assassin's Creed Brotherhood has become Ubisoft's most pre-ordered title to date, and there's still close to a month before the game releases. Between the multiplayer beta, the incredibly well produced trailers, and the constant press coverage, it's easy to believe AC:B will continue to build its pre-order record. Though more pre-orders mean more people will complain if the game doesn't deliver. Looks like we'll have to wait until next month to know for sure.

    Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood releases on November 16th.


    Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood Steps Up the Dev Diary Game

    It seems like I gush about AC:B every time I write about it. The game looks like an assassin's arsenal full of fun, with a deep and interesting campaign, a fun and involving multiplayer, and kick ass trailers. Developer's diaries on the other hand, while informative, oft times pander more to giving the developers face and voice over time, at the expense of making them feel detached, than truly showing more to the fans. Well, look at what one of my favorite things of late did to one of my hated things of late. 

    Ubisoft has been just unconscious with it's promoting of Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood so far. Lights out killing it with well produced trailers and enjoyable videos. So Ubisoft brings it's slick production to the dev diary game and absolutely tears it a new one, making it seem more like a History Channel original than a look in at an upcoming game. It's nice how they involve the developers to make them seem like part of the Brotherhood, rather than relegating them to talking heads who are tied to the project. Nicely done, Ubisoft.

    Brotherhood's latest dev diary is making me look forward to the next installation, as opposed to making me want to forget these things exist. So, who wants to set odds on whether this style will pick up or not?


    Assassin's Creed II Action Figure, Brotherhood Gameplay

    Purveyors of fine action figure crafting, Neca, are creating quite the name for themselves with their game and comic based toys. I own their Hayabusa, Leonardo, and Kratos figures, all of which I simply love, not only for their detail and articulation, but because the price point lies under twenty bones. 

    News of Assassin's Creed II's Ezio (via Kotaku), immortalized by Neca in action figure form, is great for fans of the series and figure collectors alike. Available in both black and white color variants, Neca's Ezio will slay you with his sculpt, style, and sub-Jackson price. That's a lot of class for a little cash, yo.

    Keeping on the topic, this Assassin's Creed Brotherhood gameplay demo has circulated the interwebz for a while, but it's fallen to the wayside here at Otaku But Gangsta. I really wanted to put this up to show the dedicated readers of OBG just how dope this title could be if it's potential is realized. Better late than never right? 

    Don't let the cult leader drone of the voice over scare you from the appealing game mechanics. It's worth the full watch if you're a fan of the Assassin's Creed series, or even if you've never played any of the titles and are wondering what Brotherhood is all about.


    Assassin's Creed Brotherhood Gushes Over Itself

    Ubisoft has released another killer Assassin's Creed Brotherhood multiplayer trailer. This tells you, in quotes, how awesome it's own multiplayer is. Can't argue with it, because it does look good. And like the previous ACB multiplayer trailer, it's very well done. One thing that bothers me, is that assassinations are supposed to be performed quickly, quietly, and mysteriously right? This multiplayer assassinating thing has dudes backflipping, drop kicking, and slitting throats with a flourish in broad day light. Assassination FAIL


    E3: Assassin's Creed Brotherhood

    I haven't played Assassin's Creed since the first installment. Stop judging me for being a game blogger and not having played a ton of good games!


    I haven't played Assassin's Creed since the first installment. Ubisoft just won me back with the Assassin's Creed Brotherhood multiplayer. The following extremely well crafted trailer illustrates the game of cat-and-mouse we can expect. If the multiplayer isn't really your switchblade up the sleeve, try this trailer instead. Of course, neither of these are showing any real gameplay, but regardless.. I'm a sucker for trailers that fuse cinematic action seamlessly with a dope track. Ubisoft did it once before with Massive Attack's Tear Drop, and now they do it again with These New Puritans' We Want War.
