  • Top Blogs of The Week: 10/21/2012 - 10/28/12

  • Out with Ezio, In with Conner (Spoilers Most Likely)

    Ezio leaving us is a sad and wonderful day. I'm glad we are getting a new setting, character, and even new gameplay mechanics that look dazzling. Ezio though, is a character close to my heart. From birth to death. I've been with Ezio through the... More
