Mmm. Architecture.

What is this, Penny Arcade? When did I start doing video game reviews all of a sudden?

Honestly, though. All of the ‘squee’ I’ve been holding back while playing Dragon Age didn’t have an outlet because I couldn’t decide which of the many, many jokes to make. (Trust me, though – a Dragon Age strip IS coming.) But, with Assassin’s Creed, I finally got one easy, straightforward joke.

Assassin’s Creed II is a pretty, pretty game, if not for those who are easily given to vertigo. (Actually, if you’re given to vertigo at all – stay far, far away from this game… I’ve got a pretty good stomach for heights, but watching Ezio climb some of those towers makes me feel a little queasy.) I’m not very far into the plot yet, because – yes, you guessed it – I went around and climbed all the viewpoints and collected all the feathers first, just so I could see all the architectural details. Mmm, architectural details…

If I ever actually go to Italy, someone will have to put a harness on me like they do with kindergarten kids so that I don’t get lost simply staring up at the buildings for hours on end. So. Pretty.

    A kindred spirit! That is so me, with the exception that I would need a leash less for the stop and stare, and more for the: “Oooh firstwegottasee the Colosseum, thenwegottasee the Forum, ooh ooh andthen the Pantheon…” zoooom!

    I watched Dave play a bit, and was very excited to be able to exclaim “Hey, I’ve been there!”

  4. Gah I need me a Xbox 360 or more patience for the PC release. I already have the “climbey virus” from the first game 🙂

    I don’t think they make full body leashes for adults, but I’m sure one of your saner friends would agree to walk you. 😉 Heel, girl!

    It kinda sucks having actually been to all of these places recently and then playing the game, because I looked at a lot of the scenery and locations and all I could think was “The scale is all off”.

    But walking around St. Mark’s Square again, even in digital form, was fantastic.
