Hey guys, my name is Dan, and I'm a blogger. My blog is called Be a Game Character (http://beagamecharacter.com) and, fittingly, is about learning to emulate your favorite characters from various video games. This includes fitness, skills, and psychological qualities, among other things. Though I have a growing stable of characters I've profiled, the first, and the one who started the blog for me, was Ezio Auditore. I've gotten a lot of positive feedback on the blog in the 1.5 years since then, and I figured I'd share it with all you Assassin's Creed die-hards.

You can check out Ezio's posts starting here(and continuing for the next five posts or so):
http://beagamecharacter.com/2011/06/10/character-breakdown-ezio-auditore-da-firenze/ (http://beagamecharacter.com/2011/06/10/character-breakdown-ezio-auditore-da-firenze/)

Please note, it's not my intention to spam, I'm just a big fan of the games, and a lot of people have liked my blog on other forums, so I figured I'd post it here.

I'm always looking for feedback and happy to answer questions/concerns, so please feel free to post replies(I'll be keeping an eye on the thread)

Thanks!

Dan

I never really liked Ezio to be honest, but you`v a great blog there. props to you. I admire people who take time to breakdown certain Video game components...

I`d love a blog about Connor, though...for me, that`d be a million times more interesting..

Jeez, how could they take such a pretty lady and make her game model so creepily ugly? o_O

At least they rectified that somewhat in Brotherhood.

I know, right?
Ubisoft has a natural talent for making good looks, bad.

And they are pretty good at it.

Well, the modern-day faces ALL sucked in AC3 for some reason. Not sure what happened there. Desmond and Rebecca's faces were totally changed, Bill looked downright freaky, and Shaun looked like his face model was imported directly from 2004. I mean, compare it to his AC2 model...

WTF happened? The Animus faces were great.

I'm actually the same way. I thought Ezio was alright, but I like Connor a lot more, and I am DEFINITELY going to be blogging about him at some point, probably soon. Glad you like the blog, though, thanks for the feedback =)

This is a pretty cool idea. :) I'll read through Ezio's stuff later and I'd read stuff for Connor if you did it.

Also, I hate what they've done with the faces starting with ACR. :nonchalance:

Riiight? The characters in Assassin's Creed II and Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood were a lot more expressive! Along with Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots, Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood holds one of the richest performances and interpretations I've seen in a video game. It's as if they've lost their depth, title by title. The only sign of emotion I've seen in Assassin's Creed III, was Desmond Mile's discontent towards his father, where the cliche father-son relationship between William and Desmond Miles (similar to Connor and Haytham Kenway, whose interpretation was memorable) was the high point of the drama.

We're no longer talking about the 3D models, we're talking about the expressiveness lost in the most recent titles of the franchise. But yea, the Assassin's Creed III version of Desmond Miles is a lot more similar to Francisco Randez!

The reason Desmond doesn't look anything like Fransisco in that picture is because the lighting in the grand temple is just terrible.

Protip: Every time you get out the animus, If you run back to the temple entrance, where you slided down the slope, and run back in to the temple again, the lighting goes dimmer and his face looks less stupid.

All of Desmond's missions he looked great in, the best face + animation yet (for him).

But oh my.... Shaun and Rebecca made me want to gouge my eyes out.

Yeah, that is true. Their facial expression were almost non-existant in AC3.
When William punched Desmond, Rebecca didn't even look shocked or anything. There was nothing. I really don't know why they changed that, it was much better in the previous games. They probably didn't give a **** about the modern day parts anymore.

Desmond and William look nice in AC3, but Rebecca and Shaun? Hell no!
Shaun doesn't even look like Danny Wallace anymore O__o

Mmm..Ezio is my favorite but I would kind of like Altair's wisdom, Ezio's people skills (im not too much of a talker) and Connor's agility

True. Ubisoft simply screwed that up -___-



On topic, I wish I had Haytham's self-confidence, I could really need that sometimes :/

I don't know why they changed Desmond's Brotherhood model in Revelations and 3. It needed a graphical improvement sure but not an actual face change.

The 3D model of Desmond Miles was changed to resemble Francisco Randez.

And I must say, Ubisoft has done a great job!
