I bought assassin's creed 1 for my 360 when it came out and was hooked instantly, sure the missions were incredibly repetitive but the assassinations and storyline was so gripping I could not put it down. I have not even played assassin's creed 2 yet however I am informed that it is a big improvement on the original and I can't wait to play it, I might even get it on PC (if it is even on there :S).
This is relevant because of the upcoming third installment in the series, Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood, which sports one of the coolest trailers for any game, ever. Period. I will probably do another post some time on my favourite trailers and ads but meh, this one is awesome. The assassins are just swaggering through dozens of guards scaring the shit out of the enemy leader (no idea who he is yet as I am a bit out of date with the storyline :(.
I am definitely going to be picking up other unconventional games like Portal 2, Mirror's Edge etc. as they all have brilliant storylines and challenging, engaging gameplay which is refreshing when you fall into the rut of just getting extremely good on a FPS like call of duty.
Check it out guys and remember to follow/comment/whatever, thanks.
