Rock, Paper, Shotgun has an interview up today about the game that sheds some more light on things. In it, we find out that there will be some cool multiplayer stuff in the game, which I didn’t know from the videos, and we get some hints about the main character, Pearce, and his motivations.
I didn’t really expect to be very interested in anything new on display at E3 this year. I was surprised.
We just got a new Wii, because our current one is on its last legs. One of the Wiimotes is already dead and the system itself will often freeze, refuse to read discs, or have any number of other strange issues. I’ve gone so long without calling tech support because I’m kind of dreading having to describe the issue; there isn’t one simple issue to describe, it just often doesn’t work.
This week I…
…finished Persona 3. Started playing “The Answer,” the follow-up in the FES version which I have. I also recently got Persona 4, which I will play at some point after finishing “The Answer.” I really like Persona 3. The social game aspect seems like it could be a game on its own if done well. Of course there are Japanese dating sims but most don’t reach the US and I doubt there are very many which are any good. They seem1 to follow the same patterns, with a slew of potential female partners, one each for seemingly the same categories in every one. I guess there are some that aren’t like this but I think with Persona 3/4 it’s really cool that the sim encompasses more types of relationships than just dating. I’d like to create a game with this aspect some day (I mentioned it here before, it’s called This Celestial Life).

I was going to get Might & Magic: Clash of Heroes for the DS but decided to wait for the XBLA version. It’s finally out now on XBLA, and it’s fun.
Finished Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood this week. The ending mostly tied things up for Ezio but was a cliffhanger for Desmond, and didn’t provide the answers I was hoping it would. I did enjoy it though and I’m looking forward to AC3, however if they keep dragging it out and never conclude the story (as they’ve said they intend to do) I will lose interest. I agree with Alan about the game’s over-use of collectibles, but still I do enjoy it.
(possible spoilers for Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood ahead)
Went to bed way too late last night. I was playing Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood, and just found the final puzzle thingy left by Subject 16. The reward there was somewhat… cryptic, but it seemed like it might be implying that the Assassins are all dead already and that the team working with Desmond are really Templars? I don’t know, that seemed like one possible interpretation of it. I haven’t beaten the game yet; maybe there will be more info by the end.
Is it too soon to write about Fable 3? My wife hasn’t finished it, so I’m sure it is for some (Keisha, stop reading this until you finish it; there are some spoilers).
This post contains spoilers.
I downloaded the Trials HD trial (heheh) yesterday. I had seen people talk about it on Twitter but I hadn’t tried it out; I thought it was just some racing game or generic 3D motorcycle game or something. It isn’t.
