You may ask, what could Super Dimensional Fortress Macross, and Assassin's Creed have in common?
Well, the answer I can give you to that is, I just finished both of them. ^_^
Though my real post on Macross shall come later,
just like my post on the first Eva movie,
after I watch the alternate retelling in Do You Remember Love, the prequel Macross Zero, Macross II. I'll be skipping Macross 7 and everything related to it since I have yet to hear a single positive thing about it, in fact I have heard MANY people recommend to stay away from it.
And once done with all that I can finally watch Macross Frontier, the show that finally made me go, man, I should get around to watching the rest of the show so that I know what's going on.
As for Assassin's Creed, my recent VideoGame conquest. Well, I actually REALLY wish they had made the game only half as long as it was. When I first put the game in my reaction was OMG THIS GAME LOOKS GOOD. The 2nd was "WEEEeEEeEEe!!!!!" as I had fun running on roof tops and jumping off towers and killing every guard I passed on the streets. It was great fun, and the story wasn't bad, not great, but definitely not bad. Then somewhere near the middle of the game things suddenly go from being fun to monotonous, your completing the exact same missions over and over again with the only pay out being 10 minutes of that same lvl of fun you used to enjoy when you actually go in for the kill of that lvl. And it's clear Ubisoft realized that they needed to change something up, but their idea was, "How about increase the # of Guards EVERYWHERE and at the same time make them slightly harder to kill" .......The combat system in this game is great for the occasional fight of a few guards. But when you get a group of 20+ guards around you and your stuck in a mission to save a citizen where you HAVE to kill every last one of them without running away, it just became tedious. The combat is pretty cinematic and when I first started playing it was great fun pulling off combo kills and counters. But by then you've seen every animation so the reward is also dulled.
So I hold fast that the first half of the game was great fun, I totally enjoyed it. I just really wish they had mixed it up in some way for the second half or even cut it shorter.
I knew going in that the game was a first of a trilogy, and that many were disappointing by the ending. My thoughts on it were, oh neat, thank God they finally explained the dreams he was having, looks like we'll be playing this guy again next game.
And since I'm here anyways might as well mention that the Dark Knight was an amazing movie, truly enjoyed that one.
Oh, of course I also have to mention that this weekend AVATAR the Last Airbender is ending, yesterday was a new episode, there's another new episode tonight(Reboot inspired recap episode
in my opinion), and then Saturday the 4 episode finale.
DON'T MISS IT!
also, KAIFUN is my new favorite character to HATE of all time. I hated him Soooooooooooooooooo much.
