Well, I guess the guy's awesome, then. I mean, he likes One Piece. He's bound to be a rad guy. :p
And it's actually great. Might seem childish at the beginning but it's not. It is, simply put, one of the best adventure stories I've ever read in my life. People are turned off by the length of the series and the fact that the art style is so wacky. But those who get over those "shortcomings", as they'd like to call them when they haven't experienced the epicness of the series, enjoy it a lot.
You ought to try it out sometime. Those who I've recommended it to and have given it an actual chance loved it.
"I'm a huge One Piece fan." This is a classic dialogue of that Derozio I was talking about lol.
Anyway yes, you like One Piece too? I've never watched much, but from what I've seen it sounds awesome. Pirates, and all.
Oh, that. Haha, I'd totally forgotten that there was a character with that name. XD; Here's the Bartolomeo who made me choose this name.
I'm a huge One Piece fan. Bartolomeo's a newly introduced character in the series. Although ugly-looking, he's a badass.
And well, I guess you're right. We, as gamers, get to learn Ezio's background completely. We literally see him grow up from a baby to a full-fledged assassin in 2. Brotherhood had nothing of the sort in it. The story was still good and everything else was still there but the story just didn't feel as personal as the second one.
And yeah. There were twists (like Haytham actually being a templar; that caught me off-guard) but they just didn't have as much of an ever-lasting impact on me.
The most common reason of my guess being your username. Bartelomeo d' Alviano, I think.
And me too! Actually the reason I liked AC 2 better than Brotherhood is because it shows Ezio growing up, and also how he grows and becomes more skilled. AC 2 Brthd just tries to make Ezio an unskilled assassin again but fails lol.
And I think AC III went overboard with Connor and Haytham. Maybe because the twists in the story were missing.
Or you can always go for alternatives like GIMP. Though it's obvious that you won't get all dem good stuff in it. :p And why yes, I am. Guessed? That came outta nowhere, haha. I have played every AC game till AC3. Though I'm burned out right now. Revelations was okay (had some amazing moments but was just okay overall), AC3 wasn't AS good as I thought it'd be. AC2 and ACB are the best games of the series, imo. 2 tops Brotherhood for me. Maybe the nostalgia. Or just the fact that 2 somehow captured me way more than any other game did. Dunno why.
Yes, I have been messing around for quite a lot of time. Years, in fact. It does take practice. Still, nowhere near good enough, haha. And just pirate it if you can't get a paid version. Most people don't use the original, anyway. It's grossly overpriced.
Have you met either of us in person? How can you call me a look-alike if not, lol? :p And thanks! I made the icons in my signature. Not the avatar, though. Not talented when it comes to animating manga panels.
And it's okay. My VM wall was pretty empty anyway. Don't mind them VMs. ;]
