It’s no secret to anyone on my Xbox Live friends list that I enjoy Ubisoft’s Assassin’s Creed series, having completed both to their full 1000G potential (yeah, I’m one of those gamers). I’m pretty excited about the next installment in the series, which is being released at the end of this week in the UK (today in North America!); well documented are my loves of history, renaissance art and stabbing people in the face.
The guys over at Metal Injection have come across this topical curio – an easter egg of sorts. When you use the smoke bomb in Assassin’s Creed II it makes those affected stumble around, windmilling their arms gormlessly like a bunch of dickheads – much like real hardcore dancing! Behold:
Seems like every generation/period in history has their shameful dance moves; who knew we had so much in common with 15th century Italy?
Usually I’m hauling ass post-smoke bomb, preparing to launch a daring counter-strike from the rooftops like some vertiginous ninja, but I’ll definitely be keeping an eye out for this phenomenon come Friday.
