November Recap Part 2 - New Console Edition


This is the second part of my personal November recap. If you want to know what I mentioned in the first part, just look here. This part will cover the games I got this month after True Crime: Streets of L.A. as you can imagine.

Dark Messiah of Might and Magic: Thanks to a contest of a German Wii-website I got this game for free. And I kinda like it. Okay, I expected it to be more like Oblivion but with more action. What I got was a linear first-person-hack-and-slash-RPG with some very thrilling moments (like the chase over the roofs in the, I think, third chapter). But again... Water... I need to swim... Damn...

And now here something more expensive. I got a brand new console this week and it's not a PS3. And with this console I got some new games. By the way: If you want to have a Rabbid-Maniac in your Xbox Live Buddy List, add my gamertag: "AlanarWindblade".

Forza Motorsport 2: I don't like racing simulations...

Viva Piņata: One of the first games I wanted to buy when I get this console and now it came packed in with the console! The problem is that I didn't play it that much this week so I can't really say anything about it. Except for: It looks nice, it is quite enjoyable and it takes much more time to judge this game.

Naruto: Rise of a Ninja: One of the reasons I wanted this console so bad this month... Since the very first trailer I wanted to play this game. And now this time has finally come. I'm not even disappointed. It is fun to run through Konoha village. Combat is also nice though a bit too simple in my opinion. But overall, I like it.

Assassin's Creed: The second reason for me to get an Xbox 360. My PC is far too weak to handle it. And man, am I stunned by this game. It is a blast to climb up the walls, make it to the rooftops and then jump from roof to roof. Or jumping from a high spot into a stack of hay. Or escaping from guards. Okay, I haven't got this far up to now but I'm really impressed by this game. I hope this won't change...

BioShock: Actually, I didn't want to buy this game. Rapture is a city under water... And as you may know (though I have yet to explain it in a future blog post), I don't like water in 3D video games. But hell, for just 25 Euros I couldn't resist! Up to now, I don't regret it. Even though the very first scene is a swimming sequence... But after that, it all got better. I finally understand why most of the people like this game. And I want to see more of Rapture.

And that's it. This is my complete recap of this November. Lots of games, a new console, finally 18 years old... A good month if you ask me.

About Alanarone of us since 10:09 AM on 07.24.2007

Since the Destructoid Random Title found it out already, I can admit it: I'm a Rabbid. So there will be some random DAAAAAAAAAAAH!!! in my posts. Sometimes more, sometimes less.

My hideout is in Germany. Also, my English isn't perfect. So if you have problems to read my texts, tell me about it. I try to explain what I was trying to write then.

As you can imagine, one of my favourite games is "Rayman Raving Rabbids". I really like wacky videogames. DAAAAAAAAAAAH!!! Give me some "Armed & Dangerous", "You don't know Jack", "Rayman Raving Rabbids" or "Monkey Island" and I'm happy. Also, I like "Guild Wars".
