Maybe some people would like a reminder that WhiteAndCrispy is one of PaleRobbies students and probably not just a random hater.

Former student. I'm just a random hater now.

In seriousness though, good stuff.

Yep, all good vibes around here.  Except for that whole going to the wrong university in the SEC.  We all can't be perfect...

...and clearly that applies to my Gamecocks this year.

My roommate is a Gamecocks alum and he's already so done that it isn't even fun giving him the business.  But don't feel bad.  I attended one of those "is it basketball season yet?" ACC schools.

Losing to the Gamecocks isn't the most recent cripplingly depressing Dawgs loss either...

Wow, a lotta hate for the AC series, I actually quite liked 3 and 4. Mainly liked them for the historical stuff, it's interesting how they weave actual historical figures into the plots and use them to influence the protagonists. The collectathon stuff is pretty tiring but that's mainly for people who like filling bars and getting achievements. It also helps that those games usually fall to about 20 bucks pretty fast. Heard the new one's good but just very unpolished and buggy.

Pretty much just looking forward to DA3, Persona Q and Guilty Gear for this year. Curious what your dragon age keep choices do affect because in ME3 it didn't feel like your choices in previous games did all that much except determine who was alive and who wasn't. Well, maybe Bioware learned from that but on the other hand I don't want those decisions to affect too much as it may confuse people who are new to the series. I know I had to look up some of the people you could've killed when I was doing the keep choices.

Haha, I'll be the first to tell you I'm not a good barometer for AC. I hate that series; it's all the cynicism of yearly CoD releases without, I think, the amount of polish that goes into CoD. I can dig people enjoying it, but will definitely not ever be one of those people.

Some of your Keep choices have major impacts. Some have small impacts. Some don't affect anything but could be used for future DA games.

As an example-- from DA:O, depending on what happened to Connor, Redcliffe will be a different place in DA:I, and the dialogue as you travel around town and talk to people will be affected. Other times it's just a small mention of something that happened.

Deservedly so.

I played the first one, and it actually made me angry at how bad it was.

I've never gone back to the series. Just terrible, terrible games.

I thought Assassin's Creed 2 was... fine.  I mean, it's a character-action-checklist game, with some parts better than others.  When the stealth's good, it's great.  The platforming / climbing is pretty good, too, and the historical settings are usually pretty interesting. 

However, the only one in the series I played was AC2, and it didn't make me want to play any more of them.  If I wanted to complete a checklist of collectible items and explore a large, beautiful space completing quests, I'd much rather play a Bethesda game, a BioWare game, or XenoBlade Chronicles.

I never actually played AC one and people tell me the combat and all that stuff is pretty terrible, but hey, it was a new ip then and they had a lot of time to improve things. Ac two and brotherhood hit a good balance of things and I enjoyed it a lot more, minus the counter button being instant win for combat. The new dragon age does actually take quite a few elements from assassin's creed I feel, mainly the collectathon stuff, the liberating areas and gathering resources/allies. Dragon age does a good job of tying all the side stuff into the main goal of strengthening your forces and it does feel like your army is growing so it doesn't feel like I'm collecting feathers just for the sake of doing that or filling meters.Plus there's a lot of interesting background stories and things in the world, I'm like 60 hours in now and just more curious about the world and culture.
