Assassin’s Greed

I don’t dust off the news section here very often but this was on my mind this morning so I figured I’d rant a little about it.

Assassin’s Creed Revelations, the third game in tale of Ezio Auditore, was revealed last week. I was a little annoyed about the announcement of the previous game, Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood, when it was first announced because I’m a big fan of the first two games and, frankly, I was ready to get this story wrapped up. Brotherhood seemed like an obvious attempt at a quick money-grab that was wholly unnecessary to the progression of the overall story. Still, it got great reviews and even people that didn’t care much for Assassin’s Creed 2 seemed to like it somehow, so I gave it a pass and put it on my wish list. So now we’re getting ANOTHER one of these quick, greedy cash-in games that’ll likely use 90% of the assets from AC2 all over again instead of Assassin’s Creed 3? Baaaaaaaaah! I was already annoyed by the way it seems like every fucking game and movie released nowadays needs to be part of some sort of grand trilogy but even that wasn’t enough for Ubisoft, who needed to make the second part of the AC trilogy into its own trilogy apparently. Really? Maybe there will be three Assassin’s Creed arks eventually too? The adventures of Desmond and his two compadres? Count on three of those too!

Ahh well. I guess I’ll go ahead and add this one to my wish list anyway since they're very solidly at 3/3 right now and despite my misgivings I can't imagine Revelations is going to be anything but good. Sometimes it is so hard being a gamer...
