Ubisoft has announced a new, massive DLC. The pack, titled "The Da Vinci Disappearance," is centered around just that -- following the events of the single-player storyline, Ezio's helpful, crafty companion Leonardo Da Vinci is kidnapped by the cult of the Hermeticists, who hope to pick his brain to bend the world to their seedy will. Ezio will have to locate his stolen painting across two new areas while exercising two new, undetailed "gameplay features" in order to emancipate the renowned inventor from his captors.
The DLC also includes a a ton of content for the title's multiplayer component, including four new characters: The Dama Rossa, the Knight, the Marquis and the Pariah. The game's roster of maps will be expanded with "Alhambra," a lush quarter of a Spanish city, providing hunters and huntees with a multileveled indoor and outdoor environment to slink through. Also, two new modes will be added: Escort, where two teams of four players must assassinate the opposing team's VIP while protecting their own; and Assassinate, a straightforward, ten minute round of Deathmatch. See ya, subtlety!
The pack will be released at the "beginning of March 2011," and will cost 800 Microsoft Points on Xbox 360 and the equivalent $9.99 on PS3.
I Love the Assassins Creed franchise, but I'm not that into multiplayer. My cousin who has reached level 50 and only plays this game online, is exited about this DLC.
"On its 2002 federal income-tax return, PETA claimed a $9,370 write-off for a giant walk-in freezer, the kind most people use as a meat locker or for ice-cream storage. But animal-rights activists don't eat meat or dairy foods. And during a 2007 criminal trial, a PETA manager (testifying under oath) confirmed the obvious -- that the group uses the appliance to store the bodies of its victims.
In 2000, when the Associated Press first noted PETA's Kervorkian-esque tendencies, PETA president Ingrid Newkirk complained that actually taking care of animals costs more than killing them. "We could become a no-kill shelter immediately," she admitted"
PETA rakes in nearly $30 million each year in income, much of it raised from pet owners who think their donations actually help animals. Instead, the group spends huge sums on programs equating people who eat chicken with Nazis, scaring young children away from drinking milk, recruiting children into the radical animal-rights lifestyle, and intimidating businessmen and their families in their own neighborhoods. PETA has also spent tens of thousands of dollars defending arsonists and other violent extremists."
The people of Libya are following the actions of Egypt and Tunisia and overthrowing their dictator Gaddafi who has been in power for 42 years. When the protests began he cut the internet, jammed cell phone lines, jammed cable TV and banned reporters from the country, making it very difficult to get news out. He ordered the army to fire on the people, and ordered fighter pilots to fire on them from the air. Apparently most of the army is refusing these orders, and he has had to pay hired mercenaries (assumed to be from Guinea and Nigeria where there have been pamphlets being distributed offering $2000 a day to shoot on anyone they think are protesters) to attack the protesters. Two high ranking army officers defected and flew out of the country with their fighter jets when ordered to fire on the people, and a number of Libyan ambassadors around the world have resigned in protest. Hundreds have died, with quite horrific wounds, but no one has a death toll yet because it's so hard to get news out of the country. They believe at least 300 dead is the current and very conservative guess. All the rebellions are happening now because the younger and better educated generations of these countries are using the internet and social media to connect and organize, and because the effectiveness of peaceful protests is being recognized. The internet is now, the one of the world's if not the World's most powerful way to get around the word of corrupt Government news, and the voice of the people.
