Assassin's Creed 2 is really good!

I just had to get this off my system.

 

The first AC was so frustrating, because you could see that was a good idea there, it only lacked some sort of.. game.. along with it. It looks almost like a leaked prototype.

 

Now AC2 makes up for everything! it's a fun experience from beginning to end, even though I have some criticisms (when don't we, right?)

 

Highly recommended ;)

Unfortunately, the DRM thats the game is infected with makes this a none starter for a lot of people, myself included.

 

I refuse to buy a game that requires a permanent internet connection and that is the game server go down I can unable to play the game - this goes for all UBIsoft games btw..

So highly avoidable, that said there is now supposedly a working hack out there that bypasses all of UBI's nonsense...

Mmm... I played V1 on the xbox up to a point then got stuck and got totally frustrated trying to get past a section and had to replay the same thing every day for over a week until I dumped it. When a friend was over I got him to try and he got me past it and I saw my mistake (it was one of these scripted things and I was expecting to have to do something else.) Anyway, by then I had gone off the boil and never got round to playing it since. The freedom of Thief and Dark Mod has spoilt me for lesser games even if they have some great features.

 

I definitely absolutely positively would not play even a free game if I was locked into the internet so it would be the xbox or nothing if I ever got V2.

I liked AC1, but definitely noticed its flaws... Now I'm in the middle of AC2, and I would HIGHLY recommend it. Very enjoyable story, gameplay... its also HUGE and long, with a much larger variety of things to do (or not do, if you want to skip the extras). My biggest complaint is that combat is just too easy. Eh, nobody's perfect.

The menus in the first one pretty much stopped me dead.

 

I started playing and became so frustrated with the load/unload menu aimations takes long as hell and you have to hit 'end game' in 4 spots to get out of game. By the time I had a couple session in the game I was frustrated as hell by the stupid menus.

 

A year later I decide to start it up again (I really was looking foward to it at one point) and fell of the log walk/tower climb thing a few times and have to go all the way back... That was months ago...

Dark is the sway that mows like a harvest

      I want to be a fish, but I'm not a fish. My mom wants to be a fish too, and so she's killing herself eating plankton and sh***ng blood, and tells me to stop nagging her about taking her medication. I spent several hours today, just lying in bed, having anxiety over just existing, and not being a fish. You fish, you don't know how lucky you are. You can eat all the plankton you want. I tried eating plankton again yesterday, and I just got sick. I hate being a shark.

      I just gave myself vertigo. A pleasant kind of vertigo, like the world has been lifted off my shoulders. I'll explain:
      Yesterday I saw to my dismay, that I had made my entire map two - two - units too short on every level - that every set01 piece was sticking 2 units into the ceiling. That's basically 402 brushes that needs to be realigned (minus the ground floor brushes).
      I knew enough about selections to do all of that in a very tense five minutes, and it compiled without leaks. (Thank you so much, Dark Radiant devs, for making an editor with such care for precision that you can align hundreds of brushes perfectly at once (which is not something I can say for Valve's Hammer editor, which has some serious issues on that front, which actually made me just quit it in disgust).) However, the result is that the entire level has now been stretched a barely noticable 2 units, and it will take some getting used to psychologically.

      My workflow is basically running from a chain of disasters, eventually trying to seek shelter in former disasters. It's not ideal - it's just my life.
      When I abandoned my first map, it was out of a typical mental breakdown, and so I returned to find a skybox void where the kitchen door should have been (due to a misplaced visportal) and two overlapping brushes Z-fighting on the kitchen floor.
      I've now cleaned up the last bit of mess, by cleanly separating every floor into its own layer. Now I can finally work on each floor in peace.
      ...not that I really needed to. Once you get skilled enough, the orthographic messes, well, I'll let this video speak for itself:

      Beams, beams, beams...
      Support beams, and cross beams, and then beams to fixate the support beams to the cross beams. The more beams you have in a map, the better. There's walls, floors and ceilings, but the rest of the map is pretty much just beams. Beams makes a thief happy.
