I decided to get Assassin’s Creed 2 and boy am I not disappointed. I played the game a little over the weekend and it was a blast. A combination of puzzles, action, and mystery just makes this game one of the best I’ve played in a while.
The story is follows events that occurred in the first Assassin’s Creed but even without playing it (like me) there are no problems. It’s set in 1480s Italy with a nice supporting cast of notable people like Leonardo de Vinci and Lorenzo de Medici. The last one made me laugh as my job has a study abroad program at the school named after him.
I also purchased The Orange Box too as I got addicted to the Portal demo. I don’t think there’s a person alive that could fault me for that.
I have decided though that I wont be buying anymore games (all formats) until I have a job on the mainland. So go willpower.
In other news thesis chapter 2 got shredded by my editor and adviser so it’s in the middle of a huge overhaul which has messed up my planned timeline but I think I’ll be able to get it together this week and push chapters 2 and 3 out this week.
