Remember my post-exam games dilemma? Well in the end I went for a cheap copy of Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood, partly because it was a bargain (£11.90, not bad) but also because I’m off on holiday next week to Roma itself.
This means there may or may not be updates on Monday, Wednesday and Friday next week depending on whether I can put all three of them together on Sunday evening (I’m clearing off for this weekend as well). Even then I’m afraid they’ll only be brief updates, but I’ll try and get something out.
More importantly, I’ve got an important question to consider – is it possible to navigate my way through the eternal city simply from having played AC Brotherhood? I’m sure a couple of things might have changed since 1500, but I know roughly the locations of the major landmarks, like the Colosseum, the Pantheon, the Castel Sant’Angelo and St. Peter’s. I may not be able to take shortcuts along the rooftops and I imagine that the authorities might have something to say if I tried to clamber up the outside of Constantine’s Arch, but fortunately there shouldn’t be too many Templars lurking about. Say what you want about Benedict XVI, but I don’t think he’s quite as bent on world domination as Rodrigo Borgia.
