I played the Assassin's Creed games for the first time this summer. OMG! This might be the best franchise ever! I love all the free running and the epic story line that keeps getting more bizarre with each game. I spent most of my summer playing just these.
Assassin's Creed 2 is the only game I've ever 1000'd and AC 1 would be too if it weren't for three stupid achievements. I actually stopped playing 1 about halfway through, started and completed 2, and then went back and finished 1. The bad part about this is that 2 completely spoils the ending to 1 so that made completing 1 somewhat less epic.
Brotherhood was neat and I liked how it takes place in just one city so there's no load screens between travel points. Some of the guild challenges I found frustrating as the descriptions were kind of vague sometimes. I hated full synch. That was BS and usually just made the mission needlessly frustrating and not more interesting.
Mass Effect 2
I completed a second play through of Mass Effect 2, this time as a female renegade vanguard. So badass! I guess she's so mean from all those years of being picked on for being a ginger.
I finally got to captain through more campaign play throughs than I care to admit. Now I have to figure out the "If they came to hear me beg..." chevo because I've failed about 100 attempts with that. What's frustrating is that it seems so straight forward and simple but at the same time impossible.
Dragon Age 2
Pretty cool rpg but the repetition kinda wears on you. Lots to do and lots of loot, though, with an interesting world history. I find the conversations between your friends to be absolutely hilarious, especially when Varric is present. That's why he's always in my party. Well, that and lock picking since I'm a meat head warrior.
