Another big day in gaming: Assassin's Creed II, Left 4 Dead 2 & Tony Hawk Part 900


Today’s another big day in gaming, friends. (You’ll notice that we’re practically a game blog now. I blame the publishers for releasing the biggest games of the year within a few days of each other.) Ubisoft’s Assassin’s Creed II, Valve’s Left 4 Dead 2, and Activision’s Tony Hawk Ride come out today (I assume the Tony Hawk franchise is still around because it’s still popular. I haven’t played one since Tony Hawk 4.)

There’s no Assassin’s Creed II reviews yet, which I’m interpreting as Ubisoft either being control freaks, or that that game isn’t exactly a 10 out of 10. Hopefully the game is halfway as good as that Justice trailer:

I read one Left 4 Dead 2 review (I’ll do my usual round-up later in the day), from Eurogamer, and it ends with this:

Whereas once we treated Left 4 Dead as a stopgap between Half-Lifes, this is no longer a weird little side project with modest expectations, and Valve is confident enough to play around with it, safe in the knowledge that you can trust your players. Left 4 Dead proved it. And whereas that game had a personality, this one is overflowing with it.

Considering the PC version is the “real” version, and my iMac can only just run Call of Duty 1 and Medal of Honor: Allied Assault (which I’ve been playing for the past week), and that I never played the first game, and that I’m really not the biggest fan of online multi-player games, well, what more do I have to say?

Too. Many. Games.
