I started playing Tearaway on my PS Vita earlier today and I'm absolutely loving it.

Re: What games are you playing currently?

Just finished the main storyline of Assassins Creed 3. I found the game so dissapointing and frustrating, that I'm playing Assassins Creed: Revelations right now just to feel better again about the Assassins Creed franchise.

The main storyline with Desmond was pretty good. The side story with Connor, not so much.

For what it's worth, the new Assassin's Creed game, Black Flag, is much improved over AC3.

I'm definitely enjoying the Edward storyline. I'm still iffy on the present-day story, but I still have quite a way to go - maybe it'll grow on me.

Re: What games are you playing currently?

I picked up "The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds" earlier tonight. I believe this is the first day one purchase for me since StarCraft 2. I'm just on the first dungeon, but I haven't had this much fun with a Zelda game since Oracle of Ages.

The linear, hand-holding style adopted by Zelda games for the past two decades seems to have been completely ditched in favour of an open world and exploration reminiscent of the NES era. Fortunately, there's way more to do than play the Money Making Game with old men in caves. Given the extremely positive reception for this game, I hope that we've seen the last of the likes of Phantom Hourglass and Skyward Sword.

It won't. The present-day story may as well be removed from the game; it serves absolutely no purpose.

But the Edward story is a lot more fun than Connor's story.

I restarted Valkyria Chronicles a few days ago, but just picked up Star Ocean: The Last Hope International earlier tonight and started playing it instead.

I very hesitantly picked up Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag the other night after absolutely abhorring ACIII... and am loving the hell out of it! Finally, Assassin's Creed is fun again! I love the Captain Edward Kenway character and how he's scamming everybody. Ubisoft did a good job dialing down the seriousness dial on this one.

Woot! I finally have a customized av and title in KOL. I'm collecting monster data right now, so I'm donating a lot of my extra loot to the clan.

Re: What games are you playing currently?

Wandered in to Leeds yesterday to see what was cheap, and picked up a haul of seven, four of which I actually need for work - seriously. I'm writing a book about treasure hunting in popular culture, so I grabbed Tomb Raider Anniversary (which I hadn't got before, thinking it was just a graphical update, and then discovered in Legend and Underworld that they'd rewritten it to fit in between the two) and this year's Tomb Raider reboot (on the understanding that, according to those who've played it, it's a lot less rape-threat-ey than the ads and marketing suggested); also, since I'm bringing out an updated Beautiful Monsters, I nabbed the 360 remake of Aliens Vs Predator, and Colonial Marines, since they'll be covered.

And also grabbed Goldeneye Reloaded, Far Cry 3, and Hitman Absolution, cos they're all holes in the collection and I'd wanted them anyway...

Not bad for about £4 a throw (well, FC3 was £8 and the new TR £10)

And i've still to play Witcher 2 and Skyrim from earlier in the year...

So, I've plenty to look forward to after I finish Mafia II...

Re: What games are you playing currently?

The new Tomb Raider is a good game, not great but good. Same goes for Tomb Raider Anniversary. I have Hitman Absolution and FarCry 3 to play on PS+ when I get round to it.

I hear Terrible, terrible things about Colonial Marines and AvP was so bad I switched it off after 20 minutes and sent the disc back. Though maybe they get better.

Re: What games are you playing currently?

Having tested them all out on the first missions, Far Cry 3 hooked me the most by a long way, the new Tomb Raider second. AVP and CM look like pretty bland generic shooters but I get a kick of out of the motion tracker sound effect, and I *have* to play them in order to review them...
