    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 :lol:

    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).

    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.

    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.

    The Bureau: Xcom Declassified. Not sure what I think yet. Feels like a half baked idea.

    Titanfall PC Beta. So good. COD borderline obsolete in one fell swoop. That fuckwit Bobby Kotick should have just paid the talent and left Infinity Ward alone to do their thing :lol:

    Portal 2 - had this for a year and only now got around to playing it (hooray for snow days?). Anyway, brilliant game.

    King's Bounty: The Legend (PC)
    Neutopia (TurboGrafx-16)

    I'm still playing Toki Tori, but the late game hard levels are rather tricky. After spending over an hour staring at a single screen with no progress I decided I needed a break from the game.

    I'm actually enjoying Assassin's Creed 3 more than I expected, given the reception it got overall...

    Wonder what this year's game will be - it's supposed to be announced in the coming week. I must be about the only person who *doesn't* want it to be a Japanese/Samurai/Ninja game, basically cos then it just be Tenchu Z redux.

    I'd really like to see 19th Century London - and maybe Paris too, for the Eiffel Tower. Victorian London has both Spring-Heel Jack and Jack The Ripper going for it...

    Is it a good game? Judged by the trailer, it looks horrible.

    Do you mean a new Assassin's Creed game? Assassin's Creed IV was just released ... I'm not sure if there will be a new game soon. But who knows ...
    If you are open to other genres, I think you should check out the new Sherlock Holmes adventure game that will be released this year. Trailer


    I started playing Borderlands 2 a few days ago since I am at home with a terrible cold. Usually I don't like shooters but at the moment I'm doing a little analysis why there are exceptions and why I find certain shooters more appealing than others. I admid, Borderland 2 is quite funny :D.

    Ah, alright. I wasn't aware that they were already working on a new game.

    I felt the same when Black Flag came out. It felt like they had just released AC3; I had no idea they had another one in the works.

    King's Bounty is not appealing to me at all. I knew going in that it was a Strategy RPG, but there's far too much RPG in my strategy game. I want to play a turn-based strategy game without time-wasting RPG elements. No story, no talking to NPCs, no exploring. no quests, etc. Just me and the game.

    Maybe Jagged Alliance 2? I'm not sure.

    Yes, the developers must be really busy bees *has mental image of people who live, eat, sleep and shower in their offices*.

    In a nutshell, it's basically Puzzle Quest in the Doctor Who setting. I got into it after being swept up in the whole 50th Anniversary celebrations late last year, but ended up staying for the addictive gameplay and the great fan community.

    The head of Ubi has said they may start doing more than 1 game a year.

    After not touching it for about a year I'm back in the Witcher 2 to finally get Act 1 done and work towards finishing the game.

    Such "line work" can significantly influence the quality of games. I hope they take the time they need.

    The Witcher games are awesome. I'm a huge fan. They have a level of maturity that I miss in other role playing games (although Dragon Age and Skyrim are very good games, too). But The Witcher games feature a dirtier world and therefore the player is often put in a position where he can only choose between the lesser of two evils. Also, the plot changes based on the players choices to such an extent that you get different levels to play. I hope you enjoy it.
