Assassin’s Creed: Unity Trailer Only Gives A Glimpse Of Its Awesomeness

Hot Breakfast's Sarah Faour was sent to Paris for the unveiling of Ubisoft's latest Assassin’s Creed edition, Unity.

Recently I was lucky enough to travel to Paris…for work! Eddie, Mick and Luke kindly gave me the week off, so relieved of my Hot Breakfast production duties, I was free to roam the cobblestone streets and immerse myself fully in Parisian culture.

But wait: I can justify it! Kind of. You see, the seventh instalment of the hugely popular Assassin’s Creed video game, Assassin’s Creed: Unity  is set in Paris, circa 1789 during the French Revolution time period. So, I was sent to explore the city to understand the history and context that inspired ACU.

I took full advantage of this opportunity. I saw exquisite sites: Saint Chappelle, Notre Dame, Hotel de Ville (where it’s believed the first guillotine execution occurred) Louvre,  Eiffel Tower. And as part of my immersion, I consumed coffee, cheese, wine, repeat for days and felt so satisfied!

Paris is a breathtakingly beautiful place. The city stirs you. It’s really hard to articulate how magical it is, but there’s a feeling you get while you’re there. And no, Mick, I’m not just referring to the stirrings you may get at the Crazy Horse (the Paris equivalent of the Spearmint Rhino).

Assassin’s Creed: Unity took four years to create. Some of the monuments recreated in the game took 12 months or longer to reconstruct.  Having inspected the intricate beauty up close, I get that. The Trailer only gives you a glimpse of those intricacies.

My gaming reflexes have weakened (read: I suck!) somewhat since my university days, but I thoroughly enjoyed playing the role of Arno in ACU. Even though I must have died a thousand times, I had a ball running around the districts of 18th century Paris and studying the historical monuments which make the city so special.  In fact, so distracted by the scenery, I failed to be a true Assassin!

Assassin’s Creed: Unity is out now on XBox One, PlayStation 4 and PC. RRP: XBONE and PS4: $99.95; PC: $89.95

Indecent Assault Investigation CCTV

Police have released CCTV footage and images of the man they wish to speak to as part of their investigation

Police are hunting a man over the indecent assault of four women in less than two hours earlier this month in the city and in Melbourne's North West.

CCTV footage and images of the man have been released and it's believed he's responsible for all four attacks.

Anyone with information is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or submit a confidential crime report at 


Detectives are investigating after four women were indecently assaulted in less than two hours during a series of incidents which unfolded in Melbourne’s north-west this month. 

Investigators have been told a 46-year-old woman was running on The Tan track on Birdwood Avenue around 6am on 1 November when she was approached from behind by an unknown man. 

The man indecently assaulted the woman before fleeing on foot towards St Kilda Road. 

Just 25 minutes later, a second woman was standing at a tram stop on St Kilda Road when a man exposed himself to her. 

As the frightened 23-year-old attempted to walk away, the man followed her, indecently assaulting her. 

He was last seen heading on foot towards Swanston Street. 

Just after 7am on the same day, two women were walking on a track near the river at Chifley Drive, Maribyrnong when they were approached by a man who indecently assaulted one of them before running off. 

Within 20 minutes, the man had struck again, this time, at Clarks Road, Keilor East, where a woman was grabbed as she was walking by. 

He indecently assaulted her before running off. 

Detectives from the Melbourne Sexual Offences and Child Abuse Investigation Team are investigating and believe the same man is responsible for the four incidents. 

Investigators have released CCTV footage and images of the man they wish to speak to as part of their investigation.

He is described as being Caucasian in appearance and aged in his 30s with a slim – medium build. 

He was wearing a dark blue or navy blue t-shirt with a white emblem and dark pants at the time of the incident.

Anyone with information is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or submit a confidential crime report at

Plans to build a floating beach and wave pool at Docklands are getting a big thumbs up from Surfing Victoria

There’s support today for plans to build a wave pool at Docklands producing waves up to a metre and a half high reports The Age.

Surfing Victoria CEO Max Wells is welcoming a proposal to build a floating beach from the end of Docklands’ central pier featuring sand, a lawn area and a large beach pool.

“To build a wave in the CBD of Melbourne would be fantastic for our sport,” Wells said.

“But also for the thousands and thousands of surfers who are land locked by living in Melbourne”.

"They were my favourite red jocks that Billy's stolen out of my drawer, jumped on my bed in my t-shirt with my wife," Luke Darcy said. 

It all started when Bill Brownless announced on air that he'd lifted a slab of beer from Mick Molloy's desk to take to a house warming...

Not Mrs Darce! The Final Straw?

Mikileaks Is Back In Town

Mick Molloy has proven again he is Melbourne's greatest news breaker.


It’s been a HUGE week for Mikileaks with Mick Molloy revealing that Michael Voss had taken up a role at a club in Adelaide.

"Voss will be involved in a major way at a footy club next year.. I’m thinking interstate. Somewhere in Adelaide," Molloy declared hours before it was officially announced.

But the news breaking didn’t stop there.

Mikileaks has also brought a flood of controversy upon Michael Clarke’s wife Kyly after she was forced to quit Dancing With The Stars with a hamstring injury.

Mick was speaking on Triple M with the Australian cricket captain in late September - when he made a ‘gag’ about Kyly pulling a hamstring on the reality show.

"I wish. If she did that she’s be able to one to Dubai with me," Clarke said in response.

"Is this a faux-hammy just so she can go shopping in Dubai and hang out with her husband?!" Eddie McGuire asked after hearing a reply of the audio.
