Yes folks, you've heard me talking about it - rumours like the wind rushing over dead branches - but today is the day. Today is the day of fools and madmen and of legends. Today is the day when we, the mighty people of Sparta, rise up and say enough is enough! When we say we WILL have our bread and feast on it! We shall look upon our foes and laugh for we know, oh we know, that today is the day that we go forth into the unknown and ring the bell of truth! For all know this is the day that the bell knells for you. This is the day we buy Red Dead Redemption.
Or something like that... *Shuffles feet*
Well on that note, I'll change topic completely and talk about my time so far with AC2. Still not convinced! Damn! I wanna bloody like the game, seriously I do! But I still have my reservations! Sure you go around looking for chests in other games, but it just feels so repetitive this time around! Maybe because it shows you on the map "You must go here and here and here" instead of just letting you find things on your own. You see a big tower, you have to go up it. And they all have the same outcome. It's boring.
Combat is average. Not impressed by it. Man oh man I just want to like the stupid game! I don't want to have to return it! I've probably got my poster up in the game store with "Do not serve this repeat-returner" underneath it. I mean I've returned Assassin's Creed, Borderlands, Condemned 2: Bloodshot, Dragon Age: Origins, Gears of War 2, Halo 3: ODST (twice!), The Movies and Worms 4: Mayhem! That's a whopping 8 games! Assassin's Creed 2 will be nine and if I don't like Red Dead Redemption or Fallout 3 that will be into double figures! Maybe I can write a book? "Confessions of a bad game returner".
I'll play the game through and give it a good chance. If I return it I guess I shouldn't feel bad - I mean if I could return games I had when I was younger I probably would have too. But I guess I wouldn't have found the good points in those games. But maybe I was too easily pleased? Man I'm definitely over-thinking this.
