WHAT THE FUCK HAPPENED IN THAT GAME?!
The ending was, in its own right, kind of crazy and stupid. At the same time, it makes me super curious about what's going to happen in the next game. Let's be real: they can't get away with that, can they? CAN THEY?
In the last blog where I talked about Brotherhood, I mentioned just how much of a slow burn the game's story was. By the time I finally got to Sequence 8 and 9, it felt like all this stuff was finally get rushed along. The question I'm still asking is what the point of the game was. Sure, I'm building a brotherhood of assassins and taking back Rome, but the way that the Borgias were used felt a little too contrived and convenient. I've never had an issue with the way that Ubisoft Montreal has worked their brand of alternate history into the franchise before, but it's usually a bigger piece of the puzzle than just "hey, the Borgias are trying to take over Rome, and so Ezio and the assassins have to stop it". There didn't seem to be a lot of ties to the Templars like I was hoping. If anything, I can now understand why this was a bit of a "spin-off" per say than being straight-up Assassin's Creed III.
Nonetheless, I can say that I've gotten one game finished out of the stack. Now there's only about 24 more to go...
