*Yaaaawn* There Have Been Better Video Game Holidays

I'm kinda irritated about the limited amount of quality triple A video games this holiday season. I realize that a lot of games got pushed to early next year for good reason, but I'm still irritated. I played and finished Fallout: New Vegas. It was good. It wasn't nearly as good as Fallout 3 though. I wouldn't call it a triple A title. I had a bunch of issues with it actually. I'm not going to get into those issues though. On a 1-10 scale I'd rate it an 8.

I just recently started playing Need For Speed: Hot Pursuit. Supposedly a triple A title. Don't get me is good, but not great. That's just my opinion though. It's getting good/great reviews. I honestly think I had a better time with Split Second and Blur earlier this year though. The first few hours were really fun. Then all of a sudden the difficulty ramps up out of nowhere and I just find myself getting frustrated. On a 1-10 scale I'd rate it a 7.5.

Today I just started playing Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood. After playing Assassin's Creed 2 I was kinda burned out on the Assassin's Creed gameplay formula, but I had to get this because I played and finished the first two. On top of that I'm hearing nothing but really good things about Brotherhood. I don't have an opinion yet. I'm only about 40 minutes in. I'm just hoping that this game feels like a worthy triple A title.

On the back burner I have Fable 3 still in shrink wrap. I thought about playing that, but I'm hearing a lot of negative things about it. One thing that I keep hearing is that it's a step down from Fable 2. Not a good sign, but I'll play it after I finish Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood...maybe. I have been getting some great deals online for other games. Just ordered Splinter Cell: Conviction for 10 bucks as well as Just Cause 2 for 15 bucks.

I really hope that the games I'm looking forward to early next year deliver because so far the only games that I've been impressed with are Call Of Duty: Black Ops multiplayer and Halo: Reach multiplayer. There is still hope though. Maybe Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood will get it's hooks into me.
Games I'm Playing:

Halo 3: ODST (Xbox 360)

About Me

My photo
Kalamazoo, Michigan, United States
I'm 38. I'm addicted to Xbox 360 gaming and Dallas Stars hockey. I make a decent living at a boring job where I run two autoclaves and do various other tasks. My escape from this boring as hell life is video games, hockey, and music. I generally listen to Metal music, but I also love 80's tunes as well as 70's tunes. I have an unusual love for the band Overkill. They do it for me for some reason. Blitz is GOD!
