If you look at the font in "ZombiU" the U is actually an E turned sideways!

And why not a 3? WHY NOT A 3?

Because they havn't made Zombi U2?! yet. Then they'll make Zombi3
Wouldn't it be 2ombi U instead of Zombi U2? Or do we only replace the E with a 3 in video games?

If anyone who has played Revelations reads this, is it worth playing? I played I, II and Brotherhood, but everything I saw of Revelations put me off it and I was feeling a bit burned out on the series (because I don't like Ezio). Should I play it before I get III or am I ok just going to a wiki and reading the plot of the story and skipping the game entirely?

I finished it a few months ago in preparation for ACIII and I think it was good but not great compared to Brotherhood which I felt is the best AC experience so far. It just did too little to change the formula while the new additions weren't that significant (bombs and den defence). Still, the introduction of the hookblade was awesome and made climbing buildings faster and more satisfying (something I kinda didn't like too much in the previous games). Even if you just want to know what happens in the game, I don't know if it warrants a purchase because story-wise it's pretty much a side story with no real revelations, contrary to the game's subtitle.

Honestly at this point I'm only really interested in Desmond's story and how crazy the ending was to Brotherhood, do they go into more of that with Revelations or do you think I'll be ok just picking up 3 and skipping this or is the Desmond stuff just some crazy shit that needs to be seen? That's really the only thing making me want to check out the game.

That's fair, other than the outfits and capes I'd forgotten all about the upgrades you could make to your arsenal and home.

ACII is superior to the original in every way. This seems like a strange attempt at trolling.

ACII is superior in terms of freedom and gameplay mechanics. But somehow the first game is still my favourite. Altair is just a way cooler character in every way than Ezio. Also the setting and atmosphere in the first one were tighter in my opinion, maybe just because it was more linear than its followers.

In what way do you think the first was more linear? I always felt like I had more freedom in I than I did in II and especially Brotherhood. When it came to the actual assassinations and you'd done all of your digging into the victim the game basically pointed you to where the guy was and from there you could kill him however you wanted, you could try and be stealthy or you could go in and kill the guy and all of the guards that got in your way if you wanted. In Brotherhood I specifically remember being told exactly where to go and it felt like a lot of the freedom I liked in the earlier games was taken away, for example climbing the Vatican and having some marker constantly update to tell me exactly how I needed to climb this building and do this mission, because if I didn't it would fail me because I'd desync from the memory.

If the 3rd boss is the one I'm thinking of he is the easiest one in the game, he has a glass jaw and one punch will floor him, don't need none of them there fancy augs.

A number of members of the Lords 'earn' their place/title for doing this, or that. A few get promoted to it for long service to something or other - John Prescott, former Labour Party MP and one time Deputy PM under Tony Blair, became 'Baron Prescott, of Kingston-upon-Hull in the County of East Yorkshire' via a life peerage, effectively as a reward for being a politician for years. And as said, a few (possibly a lot, there was a bit of scandal over this) get the position for chucking a load of money at the ruling party's coffers, 'Cash for Honours' as it became known.
 

 

Wait, I thought he got into the House of Lords because of his mean left hook.  
 
As for the royals, I'm honestly not that fussed about them, the Queen seems like a nice old woman and she's been around in such a high profile job for so long that she's seen some shit go down. I think the real debate about the royals starts when the Queen either gives up the throne or dies, because I don't know of anyone who really wants Charles to take up the job when the time comes.

@deskp: Can you provide a link please?

  Just went through the forums over there, the community manager did say that you can only use Robin within the DLC stuff, you also can't use Nightwing in it it seems. She also said it's new areas of Arkham City in the DLC, it'll take around 2 hours to complete and it's released on the 29th/30th of May for 800msp or $9.99.

@arcadias: It's not that out of character when you think about the boss at the end of ME2, which was also full of logic and plotholes. As well as the DA2 enfing sequences where almost nothing changes regardless of which hugely oposite faction you sided with. Plus the game quality in general. Also not surprising in light of the Final Hours ipad application which details just how rushed, last minute and how much they were undecided on the ending they were. Edit: Personally I have no issue with others believing in indoctrination theory. It's actually a fairly well put together theory as far as those go.(i only get riled up when it's being presented as fact, or as in this case a perspective borne out of greater knowledge)

I'm kinda with this guy when it comes to the ending of 3, hell I still don't really get the ending to 2 and why finding what is essentially a Terminator was a big deal but it hasn't stopped me playing through the game multiple times.

I think the indoctrination theory is pretty cool and if people want to believe it then that's fine, but when they present it as a fact it bugs me because I feel it somehow takes away from the ending I had with my Shep (despite all of them being so similar). I invested so much time in having this dude become a galactic saint pretty much by doing all of the paragon options that to be told he was brainwashed at the end makes it feel kinda shitty.

P.S. I feel kinda dirty that I signed up to a forum just to post about the ME3 ending when I'd been doing so well avoiding this stuff. Also, Deckard isn't a replicant.
