I'm not sure about cross platform. I'm more interested in why the new portal is wired. I have the PS3 version of Skylanders 1 and it was a wireless portal. This year, wired. That seems odd. I'll be using the wireless one for as long as it works thanks.
I assume this was done by Activision. There is also a Xbox 360 Skylanders bundle. Nintendo wanted to catch as many Wii1 sales this Christmas as possible. At this point I assume its more than 50% profit.
WiiU is not going to have promos because it is new. If you are looking to get into Skylanders on the cheap with no other console at home. This was the way to do it.
So I know this is an old thread but its not worth making a new WSK thread. I just thought about this game and figured someone on GB would have been talking about it. This is one of the last NES Games (and Deja Vu) that I got new. I played the hell out of it. I was a finance minded kid who grew up and got an economics degree. WTF?
Ubi has confirmed this is the End of the Ezio trilogy but the Desmond story will rap up in AC3 next year. It will likely be modern day. If I had to guess though, I'd bet their will be some Ezio (and even Altair) playable parts. Those 2 characters have define the game series and to completely exclude them would be nuts. So Desmond will be the focus (as he should have been from the beginning--he was almost an afterthought in AC2) and it will be a mix of modern day and either flashbacks to animus sessions or something.
As for the future, I know there will be an AC4 although no one is sure what that story will be about. A new protagonist would be my guess. Desmond wont kill all the Templars. Perhaps instead of using Europe maybe an Asian influence. (Ninja/Assassin, same thing really). They may take the two year break after AC3 to rest and reload the series.
I finished AC2 last month and I too thought that the DLC almost ruined the entire game. I can't beleive I paid extra for that!.
And yes I also agree that for 20 years Ezio has no personal life. Claudia is sitting at a desk, Mom is crying in her room and I'm running around killing some of the most influential Italian players of all time.
Every Year at this time as I watch all the new games come out and get eager to play them I try to do some house keeping and tie up loose ends and finish up some games that have just been lingering around. What are you plying that been out at least 6 months?
I went back and am actually finishing up games much older than that. Seeing Bioshock Infinite previews this summer made me feel bad that I never finished the original. So I went back and I'm in the final stages of that. The story and graphics really hold up. Go back and finish it if you haven't! Play it again if you have.
Fallout New Vegas. I loved Fallout 3 so so much. Great story, great open world and I was hooked. New Vegas came out and I wasn't immediately drawn into the world . I'm not sure why. Sure I still liked it but it was just OK. Well I have given it my commitment to get the courier through his world. So before I get to Skyrim I will finish this.
What else, Oh I never played Shadow Complex and I picked it up on sale this summer. Then oddly, never played it, again. So I finally cracked that open.
Plus earlier this year I S-ranked Assassins Creed 2 (yes 2 not Brotherhood). I just got Brotherhood but haven't started yet. And I also just got and haven't started Mass Effect 2.
Oh don't get me wrong, the wife is good to me, and most of those new big releases will be under my Christmas tree so I'll be playing alot of those big games soon but right now I want to finish up some older stuff. So what big games are you playing that are older, trying to finish etc.?
I'm sure this is not much of a bother to some of you. I've seen the stack of upside down disk sitting on the sticky coffee table. However, if you are like me and keep games, boxes, and even inserts forever then you may have an opinion on cardboard sleeves on game boxes.
Usually its a high profile titles. Bioshock and the Fallouts had them. But sometimes not not so high profile game get them, like Darkstar One. I don't remember seeing them on PS3 games yet--have there been any?
Whats the purpose? They don't fit on shelves properly, cost more to print and ship, and don't really add any value to the game. Do you keep them or toss them?
