Since my last post, I’ve completed Assassin’s Creed 2 which was utterly enjoyable (as was the first one). Very much enjoyed the addition of the villa, and the upgrades that came with, as well as the ability to swim. Simple things amuse!
I’ve also been playing Viva Pinata which is becoming way too much like work so I’m keen to put it aside – I did play the DS version extensively, so I should have known better really!
At the moment I’m attempting to enjoy the latest Legend of Zelda offering, Skyward Sword. I’m not sure exactly what it is that’s not sitting well with me – the fiddly controls, the overly bright colours, the horrendous bird flying sections, the time delay between sword swing and connection with an Octorok’s spit seed, the general annoyance of Zelda and Link’s relationship (can you say co-dependence?), the fact that the game refuses to allow me to play it while reclined sloth-like on my couch and instead forces me to sit pert and erect like an enthusiastic student. It’s just not doing it for me – I guess I was spoiled by Twilight Princess. Nothing will ever top that. *sigh*
