I'll probably put a review out this weekend, but not this week. Too many games to work on this week - not that that is a bad thing. I have a handful of new games coming over the next week or two, and picked up some new ones recently as well. Probably the most pronounced was Assassin's Creed III, which I beat late last night. That game got off to a 'slow' start for me - I really was not terribly into it, but it got considerably better in the later portions. Except the end. I will not go into details, but the ending left a bit to be desired in my opinion. Surprised that I had not heard more about it, given the fits the ending from Mass Effect 3 caused.
I also finished Lunar for my PSP. I had first played this title years ago on the Sega Genesis CD, and this improved version of it was as good as I remembered. I am trying to get through my PSP UMD titles - I suspect my PSP and UMDs will be getting traded in/sold soon as funds toward something else in the near future. I have three more UMD titles to go through and then I will have beaten everything in my PSP collection that is not digital. Obviously reviews will ensue.
Also, I beat the story mode on Dead or Alive 5 over the weekend, and got to play with some of the other modes for a time. I still want to weigh in on several of the other modes, but the primary one is done.
On a whim, I downloaded the Capcom arcade cabinet that came out last week and beat on Black Tiger, which was one of my favorite arcade titles back in junior high/high school. Quick handful of free trophies on a brief trip down nostalgia lane.
Oh, and I am on the second to last chapter in Halo: Anniversary and started up and put double digit levels on a new character in Guild Wars 2. I also put on a few levels in Black Ops 2 over the weekend since they had the double experience going.
On top of all of that, I have been working with my team on my MUD, Kingdoms of the Lost and we have been talking about some pretty big changes in that space. I suddenly realized why I am so tired today - I am not sure I slept much over the weekend!
So once I beat Halo, I need to consider what I am going to play next. Immediate options:
- Dead Space 2 & 3 (both on order, should arrive Thursday
- Playing Fire Emblem again (it's just so good!)
- Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch
- Persona 4 Golden (my son's been playing it on my Vita and loves it)
- Uncharted on my Vita (and Uncharted 2 for my PS3)
- Halo 3 & then 4
That is sort of my list of games I am looking at now - and why even though I really want to play Tomb Raider, I do not figure to be purchasing it in the near future.
What have you been playing? Any of the above? If you have played some of the games I am considering, what would you recommend I tackle first? Hope you all had a great, game-filled weekend!
