Posts Tagged ‘Assassin’

As I finished a test on October 30th, I left the classroom defeated and broken.  In a rage of impulsiveness, I went to the closest Gamestop and purchased Assassin’s Creed 3 on the fly.  I had read a couple of reviews and I actually wasn’t expecting myself to buy this game.  At least until the Game of the Year Edition came out with all the DLC loaded.  But I was in such a foul mood after that test, I needed some immediate happiness.  So after purchasing the game and throwing possibly over 10-20 hours into it already [maybe more], it’s been quite an interesting road.

Assassin’s Creed 3 picks up where Assassin’s Creed: Revelations dropped off [which I didn’t get].  My familiarity with the franchise only extends to 2 of the four previously released: Assassin’s Creed II and Brotherhood.  The story is somewhat bloated between the present day  Assassin/Templar conflict and the historical setting that’s essentially simulated.  I have little care for the relation between the two and find myself loathing the present day stuff, so I’m going to focus this review on the historical setting chosen.

You play a Native American, Connor, during the peak of the American Revolution.  The colonies are in conflict and the British Royal Army continues its oppression.  Given the skills of a masterful assassin, it’s your job to turn the tides of the war making friends like Samuel Adams and George Washington along the way.

It is time for part 2 of my Borderlands 2 in-depth character guides. This week we focus on Zero, the Assassin. With an active ability similar to Lilith’s phasewalk with a lot less power (depending on your perspective on kunais), this character focuses on darting to and fro in battle, concealing himself and throwing enemies off his trail with his decoy before landing immense amounts of damage from the passive boost to gun or melee damage when breaking stealth. In this guide I’ll do the same that I did before concerning Axton. I’ll cover the history of the character, favorite builds, recommended weaponry, and other insightful information pertaining to this character. I will make a side note that Zer0 seems to be one of the most popular online characters for some reason, and many people find themselves lacking in diversity as far as parties are concerned, which intrigues me, as I also started with him. Unfortunately, his ability just didn’t seem to impress me as much as I thought it would, so I converted to playing both Gaige and Axton for a while. I’m also currently working on a Maya, but we’ll see how long that skillset intrigues me. Anyway, on to the guide…
