Monday Musings

Mondays, happy mondays.

– Finished Assassin’s Creed 2.  Why you ask?  Mental diseases where I have to I suppose.  The game gets better but is still not worth the hassle.  Money is useless after the 2nd bank upgrade.  Weapons are all the same.  Catacombs make you want to throw your controller at the wall with bad response times. Combat consists solely of counter kills.  Oh, and Leonardo’s flying contraption?  Garbage.  What does improve then?  Well the story gets a lot better if not more ridiculous.  How does an assassin trust someone who he’s met for the first time and then murder 100s for him?  Putting that aside, it has a nice sci-fi twist that is going to link DIRECTLY into 2012, which is when Assassin’s Creed 3 will come out, I swear to you.  Movement on houses gets miles better in Venice.  Why?  Well for one, there are a hell of a lot less holes on the rooftops.  Second, climbing towers doesn’t take 45 minutes (Tuscany I am looking at you).  Third, and most importantly, there’s water.  Falling from a roof or tower (it happens a lot) doesn’t hurt you in the water.  Yay.  Rent it if you want but I would not recommend buying it.

– Don’t go shopping

– If you like talking about your neighbor’s yard, you should talk to your neighbor to see how he feels about it.  You’d be surprised I’m sure.

– I think the universal gift is sleep.  Everyone needs more.
