I beat Assassins Creed III about a week ago, and now I'm just going back and finishing up all the other little stuff around the game. The environments and gameplay tweaks are definitely improvements over past games, but the ridiculous amounts of bugs and glitches kinda took away from the whole experience. Some sequences were a lot more difficult than the rest of the game, particularly chase sequences, and I feel like that was more due to clunky controls more than anything else. I also felt that some things they tried streamlining (side quests and whatnot) were good in theory, but just became confusing in actual practice. The Desmond sequences were huge improvements over previous games, although the ending of the game definitely gave me mixed feelings. Definitely a good game, but I don't think it quite lived up to the others in the series. If they do a "Brotherhood" equivalent of this game, I expect it to be what this game should have been. The QC was just not as good this time around. This supposed "Thanksgiving Patch" looks to be fixing a lot of the problems, but I still feel like the game was rushed into distribution in order to compete with CoD and Halo 4.
p.s. The multiplayer is awesome, though. They definitely spent some time refining that one.
The Walking Dead games are really really good. They lacks some of the thinking you have to do in the more standard adventure games, but it makes up for it with the great narrative. Some of the choices you have to make on the fly are pretty damn difficult to stomach. Picking between two lives to save, whether to kill someone, picking sides in arguments... it really did get to me at times. I'm currently on the third episode and I'm excited to hear the fifth and final episode will be out next week just in time for thanks giving!
Currently playing Assassin's Creed 3 but have to take a break from games until the new year. Grumble grumble grumble...

Oh I'm playing it now. About 50% done. I like it better than the others AC. I guess I am addicted to it, power gamed it last weekend and now I kind kill a guard everytime I close my eyes.

Now that school's out, I'm playing Terranigma. I DL'd a ROM of it. It's an SNES game. Classic system.
Forgot that I'd started playing that last year. I will definitely have to start over now. I don't remember anything. :(

Yes, please do. It's really weird at first, but once you get used to the battle system, it's really a lot of fun. Just like Lufia, and many others, SNES RPG games can have really in-depth storylines and great character designs.
