Man, I really like this system. I'm having a lot of fun with it, and being able to use the Game pad to play games on it has to be the coolest thing ever. It's like the evolution of the PSOne I had way back when with the system attached to the screen.
ZombiU: Game is great. Intense even. I am still at the beginning, as I just got the nod to go to Buckingham palace, but I'm still playing as the first survivor. I don't like that the game tries so hard with survival horror, and then throws about 12-15 zombies at you and forces you to fight them. That was kind of lame. Other than that it's been a blast.
NSMBU: Not much to say here, got past the first dungeon. Star Coins are really hard to find in this game, not just out in the open. It's in HD. Other than that, it's a NSMB game. The sound in this game from the game pad is FANTASTIC! I wish that AC3 sounded this good because when AC3 is played on just the game pad the sound is really low even at max volume.
Sonic: This game is brutally difficult even in the medium class races. I scraped by in both races I won with only a half a second difference between me and 2nd place. They even have a trophy for it. There isn't a nice progression of difficulty between the classes because on easy, you can lap them, and on normal you just barely beat them, and both times it was a come from behind win at the very last second. I can't even imagine how brutal hard would be. I'm not a fan of this game. The karts are very floaty in this game and don't have much weight, in any form. Flying is particularly hard.
AC3: Easily the game that I have been playing the most. The story is fantastic, the setting is amazing. The graphics are pretty top notch. There have been a lot more stealth sections in this game than I remember in 1 or 2, but the time between desynching and retrying has been GREATLY reduced so it doesn't hurt as much when you fail at a mission. The gameplay in this game is so great, so much fun. I love just running around and killing many, many Brits. I'll stalk a group of 9 redcoats until they pass by about 4-8 other Brits just standing around and talking and then I'll pounce and drop all of them in the most badass of ways. It's utterly incredible. Picking up weapons off the ground is so easy that I will routinely disarm a Brit then pick up his own weapon and shoot him with it, stab the next guy, swap weapons for one that still is loaded and drop another guy. Words cannot explain just how incredible this game really is. I still have no idea why I'm playing as the guy I'm playing as, but the journey is so much fun right now. I'm in Sequence 3 I think: I have to shadow Washington (I desynced the first time because I didn't realize who he was, and I killed him). Such a fantastic game. One of the best of the year. It's like I have that AC2 feeling all over again.
I also added a couple friends: Aku and Gamersq. I sent requests to Punk and Keji.
