Pronoun Trouble.

Let me just start by saying, I really really love Assassin's Creed, I think Ubisoft is awesome. But yeah... pronoun troubles. *single tear*

I'm just a girl who likes to assassinate things in a man who likes to assassinate things's world. 

Frankly, if you aren't aware of what Assassin's Creed has been doing surrounding the release of Assassin's Creed Brotherhood, you're missing out big time. There's an incredibly well executed Facebook Game, Assassin's Creed: Legacy that feeds into Uplay a fantastic unifying social portal for achievement sharing and rewards that is integrating back into Legacy. In tandum with a wider rollout of animation and comics (hopefully more extended novels that aren't simply adaptation of the games)

Here's the trailer for Ascendence it looks awesome.

This whole rollout is so exciting to me that I have been a bit... obsessed with it over the past few weeks. Which is rather rare for me, but always wonderful when it arrives. So, in as much as I am annoyed at the gender bending on my facebook wall, I want you all to go and check these things out because it is a blip in an otherwise AMAZING execution.

And if Ubisoft sees this, just please fix the bug so no other lady's experience is marred by the oddness. The copy that automatically posts as soon as you join your social network really should be gender neutral. It has spoiled a bit of my enjoyment to be called a man, and I know I'm not the only woman who would feel that way.

Please? Because I love your campaign rollout way too much to let this happen to others.

Hey There Readers,

I know I've been denying you the pleasure of my rantings lately, and I hope you'll be able to forgive me, between travel and random colds, actual work and family... I've just been sleeping in my free time. But, in addition to my somniferous hobby I'm attempting to do NaNoWriMo this month! I'm already a few days behind but you can share in my brilliant novel-related flame out by becoming my friend at www.nanowrimo.com my handle is citalin.

Meanwhile, if you're feeling neglected you can always join the Facebook Fan Page, Follow me on Twitter or check out Jurassic Park Slope to get your fix of Girls' Media... which will also soon be available in book form *fingers crossed*

Finally you can see where I'll be speaking publically at home and abroad at www.starlightrunner.com or at THAT Facebook Page. Phew.
