Fat character in Assassin's Creed Brotherhood  
Daughter Laura sent along this character model sheet art for "Juan Borgia" in the recently-released game Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood. While I don't play myself, I have watched the kids play its predecessor Assassin's Creed 2, as well as a little bit of Brotherhood. AC2 impressed me with its incidental crowd character designs, which included both men and women of varying sizes, including fat people (and some pretty attractive fat men.) Laura, who's played ACB all the way through, tells me that there's even more diversity among the men in that game. Am looking into ways to get still shots from the X-Box 360 version of the game(s).

Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood has like 10 named women characters (npcs and your assassin baby girls) in the 1500's Italy part. 2 in the modern part. All of them have your standard female video game body type. Considering that there "types" were set in the earlier Ass Creed games which had a more limited body type library and development fin date was pushing the release date, I can't blame them too much for that. But the body type diversity in Brotherhood is really good. I'm quite pleased that Ubisoft upgraded their body type library from Ass Creed 2 (which was upgraded from Ass Creed 1).

....now I wanna play some more. Time to go steal it back from my brother.
