While the gaming press was falling over itself for Jade Raymond's flowing locks in 2007, our eye had instead been caught by another Ubisoft employee. Patrice Desilets.

His name...so beautiful. His beard...so magnificent. His accent...so alluring. And yet, our admiration has been tinged with sadness, because shortly after Assassin's Creed was released in late 2007, Patrice disappeared from the public eye.

Until now!

Here, he appears to not only tell us all about Assassin's Creed 2, but to sooth our frayed nerves with his dulcet, gallic tones. Highly recommended viewing.
