If its the newer one the Tomb Raider game is really top notch.

Finished ACIV Sunday. Altogether much more enjoyable than AC3, the naval stuff is really hard but very satisfying when you are successful. The first time I took down a man o' war I actually whooped out loud, freaking both the beagles and Mrs Tif right the hell out. (I do not know how the cat fared, she was in the bedroom) Anyway, the story gets a little vague at times, but it does not have the ponderous weight that killed AC3. Also, the voice acting was so much better in ACIV. Didn't always like the way they played with the known history of the real charcaters portrayed in the game (Blackbeard's death was particularly galling), but overall it was a fun experience.

I now have about 50% of the achievements to unlock in the open world. Arrrrh....!

Finally, after 52 hrs of game play and 6 months, I finsihed Twighlight Princess. I got everything I think I could of possibly got outside of a few random treasure chests. I got every poe soul, every gold bug, every heart piece, every item I could get in my inventory, caught every fish, etc.

I really enjoyed the game. I thought the story was good and enjoyed the game play as well.

I'm going to play Fourswords Adventure to switch it up a little big before tackling Skyward Sword. I probably won't get finished with Four Swords until like end of February/beginning of March just with schedule, but I figured that is different enough to change it up a bit.

I'm glad someone appreciates it. My wife just rolled her eyes at me and my 3 year old just asked if she could watch another cartoon.

I can relate, I got 4 kids here watching me play Zelda & the wife says why don't you let them play Mario. I say it's it's my day off & they are helping me get through the temple, now they have it in their heads that they should be playing

petition to change nan's name on lgp.com to twilight princess and/or twilight queen (since after all, he did complete the game)

how much of AC IV is like the ship missions in AC III? That was one of my least favorite parts of the entire game.

I hated the ship stuff in AC3, but find it much more fun in ACIV. It takes up a good chunk of the game once you get going.

Six months and only 52 hours‽ You clearly have a family or social life. In the last six months I spent more than 250 hours playing Skyrim.

Aside: You should see an Interrobang after the word hours above. I just discovered this glyph. Why is this not a standard punctuation mark‽

None of the daily deals really excited me. Mostly cause I already own or am not interested in the games. TellTale's The Walking Dead is available for a little over $6 and I would recommend that. But. tomorrow's deals will catch my attention

TellTale is making a Game of Thrones themed game. That will be interesting to see how that turns out.

Only got to play a little bit of Zelda (mostly after the game). The 3D effect freaks me out a bit... if you are looking at it "right", it looks amazing, but if it is "off" at all, it wreaks havoc with your eyes.

So far I have the sword, shield, and just got the bow before I stopped playing. Although, the person that gave it to me said I was "renting" it... so not sure what that is about just yet.

The parts of the world I've explored so far are more or less right out of ALTTP. (ie. very close, but not 100% identical).

Ok, so there is a dude in your house that rents items. You pay a small fee and keep them forever... Well, at least until you die. Then you lose them all. However, this means you can get any of those items as soon as they are available rather than waiting to fnd them in a dungeon or what not.

I picked up the bombs and hammer for now. Getting ready to enter the second dungeon now.

I forgot that i was in this thread and when i read the first paragraph of that post i was so confused. Then i realized what this was when reading that last line.

Yeah, taken out of context, that would be quite strange.

I just noticed it on amazon for same price for PS3/XBox. I gotta get that myself.

If anyone has a list of PS3 games on sale, post a link please.

I'll be trying to get 1 Year PSN Plus for $30 at GameStop tomorrow.
