Ever done any of these? You just may be an addict.



1. You've performed a Leap of Faith onto your bed. Bonus points if you screech like an eagle whilst doing it.

2. You analyse the structure of buildings, and pick out your climbing points - as if you are actually going to climb it.

3. You write ridiculously long lore theories, produce fan fiction, or fan art - because you are part of this universe too.

4. Hoods are not only fashion to you, but a sign of your fandom. Why does everyone not dress like this?

5. You harrass Ubisoft employees over social media in the hope of gleaning information, or for your senpai to notice you.

6. You have a tattoo. And it will still look cool in 30 years, thank you very much.

7. You listen to the game soundtracks on repeat, often on Ubi Loud's Youtube channel as you are too lazy to close your browser.

8. You got that figurine. That book. That comic. Not because you wanted it. You needed it.

9. It's not enough for you to contain the fandom to yourself. You name your pet, your baby even, after an Assassin. Hell, you dress them up too.

10. Remember when you ran across the rooftops of Japan and Greece? Or roamed the Wild West? Oh wait, that was one of your numerous AC related dreams.

Dressing up your child as a professional murderer seems a bit much don't you think? I am starting to get worried about Ubisoft's Disneyfication of murder.

Anyway I am only good for Point 2. I do tend to see architecture around the world, and look at them and wonder where are the grab points to climb and scale...you know if I were a Parkour guy. I am good for Point 7, I do listen to some of the music outside game. Especially the Tavern Music for Black Flag and the score and music of selected games.

The rest not so sure...I tend to think that with the single exception of Assassin's Creed Brahman, a genuinely good and well-drawn comic book, every single AC Transmedia is bad and irredemable.

This only as well for me.

At one stage I got worried about the time spent looking at buildings just for this reason :)

Definitely #2.

1) Yes but without the bonus points

2) Definitely, especially since I myself do some basic parkour. I don't just look at whether there are windows and ledges or not, as I would in game, but try to imagine a much fitter version of myself actually scaling it, where each hand and foot would be placed, as well as just which route to take. It's interesting to look at how realistic the parkour in game is by comparing the architecture there with reality, looking at whether each ledge is large enough to support a firm grip, or if certain jumps are actually doable, and whether there's space for a run up for a high enough wall run, etc. The assassins sure can climb leap and hold on to extremely small ledges!

3)No not really.

4) I have an AC t-shirt, does that count? I don't think I've actually seen a hood in real life that resembles the typical style of those of the assassins. All the modern hoodies have a hood that widens around the ears and then the two sides both connect back up at the centre below the neck. Assassin hoods are more triangular, with the two sides attaching to the robes nearer to each shoulder.

5) Nope

6) Nope

7) Yep

8) All I have apart from the games really are the newest Titan comics and the stuff that came with Syndicate's Charing Cross edition. Most of this extra stuff I feel is worthless, but as the description says, sometimes I just feel that as a fan I need it.

9) No, just no.

10) Definitely. Well, I think so. I can't pinpoint exact memories, but I remember remembering of such a dream. As I said, the fact that I do parkour also means that I get a lot of dreams were I'm physically a lot fitter when it comes to parkour and can actually pull off the moves that I'm currently too scared to do. And it really does feel realistic. I remember feeling the strain of each muscle, balancing the weight of my body, and the tiredness that comes along with it all. When I get up it almost feels as if I could just go outside and recreate what I'd just done in my dream, but when it comes to the real thing, even though I'm thinking 'come on, you did this perfectly before' and I honestly feel like it's in my muscle memory, I just can't because I know that I won't have the strength and agility.

Number 2 all the time.
I'd add one, too.....
When I see a location on tv that has featured in an AC game, i look for familiar parts of the "map". Mostly this is Venice with it's canal side markets (where a lot of the chests were) et.c, and Istanbul, in particula Hagia Sophia (is that how it was spelled?) and the Grand Bazzaar

HAHA This is amazing! 1 and 2 are definitely a daily struggle to restrain myself from trying to do things I have absolutely no physical capacity to survive attempting.

I distinctly remember a variation of #2 from my wedding day. We had an outdoor wedding, and I was deep into AC3 at the time, so it was the forest around rather than buildings. Even mentioned it to my best man, who later pointed out that my wife's wedding dress bore a slight resemblance to Ezio's AC2 outfit (unintentional, as my wife isn't into the series).

1. One time I was at a friend's house, and he had a large tractor next to a pile of hay. I might've been drinking a little, but I totally leaped off the tractor into the hay. I'm lucky there wasn't like a pitchfork in it or anything. :p Still, totally worth it.

2. Constantly.

3. I think many of you here can verify that I've been guilty of this.

4. I actually own one of those hoodies.

5. Haven't done that yet, aside from suggesting questions in interviews.

6. Not yet, but my wife (well, she'll be my wife this time next week( and I do want to get Assassin symbols on our ring fingers.

7. Yes

8. YES

9. I don't have any pets or kids, but I've put a large Assassin decal on my new car.

10. I'd take it one step further- I do remember running across rooftops in the Wild West and Feudal Japan, because I play other video games AC style now. Red Dead Redemption? Nah, it's Red Dead Revelations :p
