“It’s the most wonderful time of the year, with Guardians singing and where sparrows go zinging”…..wait…”queue record scratch”… No. It isn’t.

Rain beat down hard on the window panes of my office…lightning rolled about the clouds off in the distance… I paused a moment to watch, and then returned to pouring myself a couple of fingers of Canadian whiskey… I didn’t have much of a taste for the local rot gut, and my olive supplier had run dry, so a martini

It’s been 10 years since the first Assassins Creed title hit the shelves, and blew the mind of a whole generation of gamers. An action adventure series which has gone on to spawn 20 different games, as well as books, merchandise and in this authors opinion, one pretty ordinary movie, (Michael Fassbender notwithstanding); there even are rumours of a Netflix
