    that seems quite backwards... but I guess public speaking is less personal?

    in school i never usually LIKED it, had the usual feelings associated with it etc. but when i actually did a presentation of some sort it always went very well and often even when i made a joke or tried to put a humorous spin on something it got good laughs even though i wanst at all a personable or jocular person in school(i just slept with my head down on the desk 99% of the time). i guess i just have some level of 'stage presence' or whatever.

    good:
    -i like to think im good at analysing things
    -good with computers, gadgets, etc
    -have a natural affinity to music. i sometimes conjure up very complex musical pieces in my head. i just lack a way to express it but eventually i plan on learning a host of instruments to do jus that
    -i learn/understand things easily. suppose theres a concept explained in class i comprehend it faster than most people. this is one of the reasons i can, and prefer to, learn things on my own with online resources and the like.
    -i assimilate things around me quite easily. if i was stuck in france and everyone around me spoke french id probably pick up on the language faster than most people.
    -pretty articulate
    -assassins creed multiplayer. i am ridiculously good at it. i surprise even myself.
    -GOOD FORUM POSTER

    terrible
    -sports. there is not a single sport i am good at.
    -i have a terrible memory
    -any sort of visual design
    -mechanics

    Rayne I sent you a PSN message forever ago asking you to add me so we can play Assassin's Creed Multiplayer and you never responded.

    Mario and I were playing yesterday and we both ended up platting ACB finally. EV is so hard to get sometimes. :|

    i stopped playing multiplayer on acb because it takes a ludicrously long amount of time to connect to a server and start a game.

    Yeah it does...

    ACR is at least better in that respect but there are more idiots playing that game as a counter balance somehow...

    People who start chases and use the gun a point-blank range.
    Those are definitely the most annoying.

    And people who use smokebombs to get focus bonuses because they don't have the skill to actually stalk their targets without getting stunned.

    to be fair a lot of those people are probably beginners who dont have the better perks so they have to make do with shit like guns/smokebombs. i used the gun a fair bit when i started out. im not sure about revelations but the brotherhoods leveling system is shitty.

    I see level 50s use guns periodically in some lobbies.

    ACR is a little weirder in the sense that you don't automatically unlock abilities, you have to buy them with abstergo credits. You get about 40 or 50 credits each level.

    Even as a beginning I saw that the gun only gave you 100 points so I never saw the use for the gun outside of Escort.

    Some people can't read well, I learned at age 2

    Some people can't play video games because they have no motor skills
