If you’ve played the Assassin’s Creed games, you know the general Creed of the assassins: hide in shadows, protect the freedom of mankind, kill people who need killin’, yadda yadda. But, as this “Assassin’s Creed in real life” video aptly demonstrates, the Creed also includes things such as: walk and climb wherever you want, invade people’s personal space, sneak up behind them and shove tomahawks in their faces, push them out of the way, and basically, do whatever you want with worrying about how it annoys anyone around you. The Templars may have a point here, is all I’m saying. Thanks to Will S. for the tip! (Via Kotaku)
Robert Bricken is one of the original co-founders of the site formerly known as Topless Robot, and its first editor-in-chief, serving from 2008-12. He brought the site to prominence with “nerd news, humor and self-loathing” as its motto, raising it from total internet obscurity to a readership in the millions, with help from his savage “FAQ” movie reviews and Fan Fiction Fridays. Under his tenure Topless Robot was covered by Gawker, Wired, Defamer, New York magazine, ABC News, and others, and his articles have been praised by Roger Ebert, Avengers actor Clark Gregg, comedian and The Daily Show correspondent John Hodgman, the stars of Mystery Science Theater 3000 and Rifftrax, and others. He is currently the managing editor of io9.com. Despite decades as both an amateur and professional nerd, he continues to be completely unprepared for either the zombie apocalypse or the robot uprising.
