Re: What games are you playing currently?

I went all retro this weekend and started a new play-through of "Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis". So awesome.

Anybody else miss LucasArts point&click adventures?

Yes, but the current crop of point and click style adventures are pretty decent.

Meh, I wouldn't say I miss the Indy games. I'm more of a Maniac Mansion and Zak McKracken kinda guy.

Lucasfilm Games in general I do miss, definitely.

Well I got very bored, very quickly, of Sonic: Lost World.

Every single day. LucasArts were masters at the genre.

Re: What games are you playing currently?

It's pathetic how many games I have on the go:

Wind Waker HD is taking up most of my time. Great game.

Bioshock Infinite: I've been chipping away at this since lasts summer

Assassin's Creed Brotherhood: I've come to the conclusion that the AC games are pretty repetitive, but I'm just playing them for the story at this point.

Arkham Origins - I'm almost embarrassed how little I've played this.

A Link Between Worlds - 19 1/2 hearts! Goddamnit.

They are quite repetitive. I played the first four of them one right after the other, and I got so burnt out on the series because they're all so similar. I love Ezio's story, but I was just so tired of the gameplay by the end.

Excellent selections if I do say so. I completed them both a few months ago (though I skipped a few heart containers in WWHD, but found them all in ALBW).

"Repetitive" doesn't bother me much if it's solid. The thing with AC is I loved it and played it for the plot and then AC3 came along and destroyed every interest I have in the series.
What a rubbish game. It's tedious, I missed the fun old world cities* and damn... that ending was just the worst.

That whole Adam and Eve video thing, and the ending with Ezio in the secret temple in AC2 gave me some serious goose bumps. But so far, ACB, ACR and AC3 have left me cold in that regard.

But Revelations has a fantastic ending to Ezio's (and some other guy's) story.

Re: What games are you playing currently?

I played AC2 and Brotherhood virtually back-to-back and it was a great experience.

Probably the only criticism I could hold against Brotherhood is that even its blatantly cliffhanger-y ending didn't manage to make me care about subsequent games in the franchise - which, given the response to Revelations and AC3, probably wasn't even a bad thing

I'm very much looking forward to playing Black Flag, however (which I'm content to wait for until I'm getting a NextGen console).

Re: What games are you playing currently?

I've enjoyed all of the Assassin's Creed games to a greater or lesser extent and have half thought out features that add little or nothing but even at their worst they're usually playable.

Re: What games are you playing currently?

Yeah I've enjoyed all the AC games so far... some more, some less. Despite it's flaws, I really enjoyed AC. AC2, AC:B and AC:R were all a lot of fun. AC3 was my least favourite and I absolutely loved AC4. I had so much with the naval section of the game.
