Rant Gaming Round-Up: 11/03-11/09Posted: 2012/11/12
Some days, you just can’t get rid of a bomb.
My bomb this past week was Assassin’s Creed III. I’ve been carrying it around with me, wondering when it was going to go off. It’s been getting hot, and I can hear the fuse hissing, but it’s like it’s glued to my hot little hands.
Not that it’s a bad game. In fact, words cannot describe how pleasantly surprised I was with it–actually, words CAN describe it, and you’ll see how in my full review, to be included in the next update. It’s just that, with a game like Assassin’s Creed III, little things like eating, drinking, and sleeping can tend to fall by the wayside.
I was able, however, to squeeze out two features for Rant Gaming while my review sizzled in the pan. The first was a Not So Old School Special Edition: Classic Board Games in Assassin’s Creed III. As the name implies, it’s a short catalog of the traditional board games available to play in the game’s rendition of Colonial America. As if collecting feathers wasn’t distracting enough, now you can play Checkers?
I also did a short write-up about the Indie Game of the Week: Miasmata, which got a new trailer around the time the article went up. In it, I also hinted at some upcoming changes in format to the Indie Game of the Week, so be sure to take a look.
And that, aside from working and mandatory sleep sessions, was my week. Now if you’ll excuse me, I only have a few more Homestead missions to complete. See you on the other side.
