Today begins a new series of posts without mentions of ridiculous teenage songs in its titles! Rejoice! XD
First, I would like to begin this post adressing the absence of our sysop User:War Clown -- he will be missed. There's little I can say that has not been said, but I'll say this: may fortune smiles on your travels, brother, and brings you back to us safely someday.
With the sad stuff said, let's get the party started! Pardeee!
I would like to officially welcome User:Elchzard into the staff -- altough the unanymous oppinion among us was that Elch was Staff material, most believed he needed more edit work before joining us. I understand that and agree to certain extent, but the unique circunstance demanded unique actions: War departed and left Elch without a master. With his training too advanced to stop and with the Initative out of avaiable masters, the best choice for him and for us was to promote him -- editing is something he will only acquire with practice, with no need to be teached, but with need for experience. As such, I consulted with User:Assassin-Rayne and User:Vatsa1708 -- the Istruttorium's Direttore and Carmelengo respectively -- and both accepted Elch was already good enough to join them, and a Istruttore Elch now is. But more important than he becoming staff is the fact that he is the first sucessful apprentice to graduate the Iniative! So after 6 months of hard work by every single member of the staff, giving their best that a deeper bond and a better wiki is created, the project starts to give fruit! So congratulations to every single one involved, and special congrats to Elch. Look forward for his graduation speech in the comments below. =P
Next, I've came across some very awesome videos throught the internet that may interest many people around here, so when you are sitting in your chair staring at the PC thinking about who would win in a fight between a llama and a camel, make sure to watch one of those!
- Assassin's Creed v.s. Prince of Persia
This very awesome video is a 3D martial arts fight between Altaïr from Assassin's Creed and The Prince from the 2008 game Prince of Persia that makes homage to a lot of fighting movies out there, from Bruce Lee and Jackie Chan passing through Jet Li all the way up to The Matrix. Is a must watch and I definitely recommend it to everyone (specially to Rayne and DarkFeather, our resident ninjas XD) and I also recommend the 2008 Prince of Persia game -- I personally like it more than the others -- and The Prince is dubbed by Nolan North XD
Note:I THINK it was first linked to me months ago by Kaishiro on IRC, but I can be wrong
Made by Outcast Templars Clan, this not so little video gives a nice understanding of the multiplayer mechanics, with good quality and gameplay shots. If you liek multiplayer, you can't miss it.
- AC: Beautiful Lies]
A amazingly work of awesomeness, this video is superior to most videos I've ever seen Ubisoft publish XD A tribute to Altaïr, Ezio and Desmond, it is guaranteed to blow your mind!
- ACR Gamescom 2011 Demo
And this last one is new gameplay of Revelations featuring both Ezio AND Altaïr that was featured in the Gamescon 2011. Knock yourselves out!
Also, the Skype and IRC community is at full swing, so make sure to drop by! And expect news regarding Skype and voices (and MUSIC! =D) on the next news post ;D
That is all for today. Post your comments below -- me and the staff want to hear your oppinions! Safety and peace, and a good week to all.
