In an effort to stuff out any hope I had for this story concluding in anything close to an efficient way (too late), Ubisoft has revealed that our hero Ezio of Assassin’s Creed II and Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood, will be shown struggling with old age in an animated short, Assassin’s Creed: Embers. I can only assume this will mostly be about his swollen prostate, a tragic dependence on male fertility drugs, and the struggles of changing your own adult diapers.
In all honesty, I just want Assassin’s Creed to come to a graceful end. I never finished the first one because it was a frustratingly boring pile of shit. I’m amazed I even picked up the second one, but after many an assurance that it didn’t suck, the franchise won me over. The last two games ended in cliff hangers, and the whole thing is threatening to lose me once again because they don’t know how to end a fucking story.
So seriously, Ubisoft. Let’s wrap up the Desmond saga this time around and move onto other things. Ancient Japan, anyone? Maybe some futuristic assassins? Or just some closure, please? Please?
