Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood's line-up of sleek and deadly killers gets some serious bolstering by the armoured Officer and the all-important tubby guy with a beard. Finally a character for me!
As a relatively tubby guy with a beard, I often find myself forced to pick a sleek and sexy character in multiplayer games, and that only reinforces my negative self-image. Enter the Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood Blacksmith, a character I can really identify with. He stalks relatively silently through the streets of Rome, face turning red from trying to quiet his breathing. The only sign of his passage is a trail of sweat droplets, leading to a large man slumped against an alley wall, panting furiously. As you stop to laugh, he hits you with his hammer.
The Officer is an exclusive preorder bonus from Best Buy. I'm still not clear how we'll obtain the Blacksmith. I'd suggest codes on specially-marked packages of bacon. Mmmm, bacon.
