360 X-Press: The Stab and Shoot Edition

Once again life has prevented me from keeping the blog up to date.  It is all I can do to even keep up with the games I have, and w/ Mass Effect on its way (more on that) it may be leaner than ever.  And that is just the frivolous stuff.  I have a new baby that will be here literaly at any moment and a final exam to study for.  Exciting times and Christmas just around the corner.  But if you are reading this you don’t wanna read me droning on about my life, you wanna hear me droan on about games:


Since I have purchased Assassins’s Creed I have really been enjoying it.  It was brought to my attention in a podcast about its similarity to Crackdown, and I can totally see why.  The exploring of 3 towns, finding flags instead of orbs, the simple attack quests that lead to a final boss confrontation.  So far the parallels are holding true, though I am quite early into the game.  Even though the game seems quite repetitve thus far I can’t get enough of the combat, climbing, and the sheer beauty of this game.  While it may not be for everyone and the games repetitive nature may rub people the wrong way, I would at this time still highly recommend this title.  Stay tuned for more as I get further along.


News of the day!  Ubisoft has announced a sequal to 2006’s shooter of the year.  Rainbow Six Vegas 2  is on its way in 2008!  Here is an excerpt from the press release:

As expected with one of the pioneer franchises for online multiplayer Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Vegas 2 will also break new ground in both co-op and adversarial modes, while providing unprecedented interaction between the solo and multiplayer modes.

By far RB6:V was underappricated and underplayed by gamers in my circle.  I hope the same mistake will not be made twice!




I like CFL Football, Video Games, and Social Media....so here I am!
