Recently I just finished playing through Assassin's Creed 2. If you haven't played it yet, do it. It's great.
Anyway, while playing through it, I learned a few things:
~Leonardo Da Vinci's genious will know doubt inspire a group of rebelious teenage reptiles to fight evil someday, naming their leader after him in honor.
~No matter the height from which you jump, whether it's from the roof of the house or the top of a cathedral, landing in a 6'x8' wagon full of leaves or 5 foot high pile of hay will save you from the fall.
~Just because you can free-run anywhere in the game, does not mean you can free-run anywhere in real life. Two trepassing violations, a spooked old woman, and a sprained ankle are proof.
~Guards were the bullies of the 15th century, passing down their incredible bullying knowledge and skills to all modern-day high-school football jocks.
~And lastly, knives should be an everyday fashion accessory. And the more you wear, the better. Which in turn makes Danny Trejo one sharp lookin' dude.
I'm thinking life in 15th century Italy was more interesting than today. But that's just me.
