Honestly, I’m not sure what I should say about this. I really don’t want to spoil anything for anyone, but otherwise all I can say is that I played this for a couple of hours last night and thoroughly enjoyed it.

I dreamt about the game last night, too. I killed some men carrying a jewel-encrusted chest through the streets, then opened it to see what goodies were inside. I remember the following:

Half a loaf of Sainsbury’s Long Life sliced white bread.
Half a bag of grated Sainsbury’s Basics cheese.

There were some other modern foodstuffs, too, but I don’t remember what. Anyway, I froze in confusion and then two monks opened their robes to reveal uzis and started spraying bullets around. Turned out they’d hacked into the animus to kill me in the past, or something.

All very exciting, but the cat woke me up before there was any conclusion.

Nothing like that happened in the game, though. Bit of a shame, as it could be excellent. I could live without the Sainsbury’s product placement, mind.
