I like the Assassin's Creed series, but the games are just so alike that you are really just paying for the story. There is only so much free running around Common Era Europe that one can do before it becomes tedious.
I appreciate the differences between each game, but there simply aren't enough of them. Even the missions are redundant.

-Oh, here's the mission where we dress up as actors to infiltrate a play.

-Here's the mission where you have to tail someone for 25 minutes without being seen.

-Here's the missions where you dress up as a soldier to infiltrate the enemy camp.

-Here's the mission where you track down a random thief because he stole something belonging to the hot chick.

I really enjoy these kind of open-world games, but they do get kind of old after a while. I just want to skip all the random side missions and do the story. And I'm so tired of having to do all the missions without being detected! I keep having to restart levels because some random dude on the street saw me.

Re: What games are you playing currently?

Waiting for the early access for The Secret World to start today. l pre-ordered this thing two months ago, just to get a head start on all the gankers, and the servers still aren't up yet.

l guess its a good thing that the game wasn't up earlier, because my electricity just went out for a couple of hours, and l would have been PISSED if that had happened in the middle of a game.

Re: What games are you playing currently?

Just finished "Assassin's Creed: Revelations," and I'm starting to get annoyed with the franchise. Every game is like an episode of "LOST." I want some answers, dammit! I thought that, maybe, with this being the last game featuring Ezio that it would actually provide some closure.

Picked up Sonic's Ultimate Genesis Collection for $18 at Costco. Having a blast playing through old games from my younger days.

Re: What games are you playing currently?

I've been seriously getting into portable gaming over the past year, so I picked up a Game Boy Advance SP Backlit model. Fortunately, the pawn shop where I bought the system, had two giant bins of GB, GBC, and GBA games going 5 for $20, so I ended up with a bundle of awesome games. That's what I'll be playing for a while.

Game Boy/Color

Bomberman Quest
Castlevania: Adventure
Donkey Kong
Solar Striker
Super Mario Land 2
Super Mario Land 3: Wario's Land

Game Boy Advance

Advance Guardian Heroes
Crash Bandicoot: Huge Adventure
Crash Bandicoot: N-tranced
Hamtaro: Ham Ham Heartbreak
Mega Man Zero 2
One Piece
Rayman: Hoodlum's Revenge
Scurge: Hive
Sigma Star Saga
Spyro: Season of Flame
Super Monkey Ball Jr.

Re: What games are you playing currently?

I picked up Lollipop Chainsaw and that game is a lot of fun. I love Suda51's games, I really think they're kind of pop art in a way. I love all the references and ideas. This one is a lot like Shadows of the Damned but trading guns for melee (it's a lot like Splatterhouse as well). That is a linear 3D brawler.

It is short though, only a few hours long, though I've really enjoyed replaying the stages for unlockables and bonuses (for once, I regret not getting the pre-order costumes). For most people that probably means rent first or wait for a price drop.

Where else can you fight a funky zombie Bootsy Collins villain who speaks in autotune and flies in a disco UFO atop an arcade? Some cool voice talent too: Tara Strong, Michael Rosenbaum, Linda Cardellini, Michael Rooker, Gregg Henry, Shawnee Smith, etc.

Re: What games are you playing currently?

When am not replaying the Mass Effect franchise, I have been going through 007 Bloodstone on the 360. Its nothing special but its a solid adventure that feels like Bourne meets Bond with a touch of Splinter Cell Conviction to boot. Am enjoying it since its been ages since we had a decent Bond game.

Re: What games are you playing currently?

I picked up Driver: San Francisco for the 360 the A other day and boy, is that a fun game. A lot of racing games piss me off because you can go full throttle the entire race and somehow cars can magically pass you being left in the dust miles back. I like this game because when that happens, I shift into in oncoming car and slam head on into the opposing car. It's definitely going to be hard going back to Forza 4 after this

I've also been getting some play on my Nintendo 3DS, playing through New Super Mario Bros. in anticipation for New Super Mario Bros. 2. I've also downloaded a few games onto my Virtual Console and have been playing them:

Super Mario Bros.
Super Mario Land
Super Mario Land 2: Six Golden Coins
Metroid II: Return of Samus
The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening DX

Re: What games are you playing currently?

After finishing 'Kingdoms of Amalur', I've got a mighty strong hankering to play god with something, so I'm switching back and forth between 'Civilization V' and 'SimCity 4'.

Re: What games are you playing currently?

I started playing Max Payne 3 but got a little annoyed with a corridor where I keep dying over and over... so I've started a Mass Effect 1 replay (I'm ashamed to say I've never completed the first game with a female Shepard), and as of today I've started playing Spec Ops: The Line.
