Sure, Michael Phelps can swim…but how is he at Tekken 3? With apologies to all of the real Olympians out there, we humbly present our own Gold Medal Moments in Gaming. We’ve also got talk of Modern Warfare 3, Assassin’s Creed Revelations, Puddle, Quantum Conundrum and lots and lots of fighting games. Go for the gold!
Tag: Assassin's Creed Revelations
There were some really, really great games in 2011. Here are a bunch of my favorites, followed by others that I also liked, just not quite as much as these top ten.
Assassin’s Creed: Revelations
I want to be mad at Ubisoft for annualizing Assassin’s Creed and simply tweaking and enhancing the previous game, but it’s hard to get upset when I like the core game and its storyline so much. Revelations is, for all intents and purposes, more of the same. They’ve added a couple of things like bombs and the tower defense-style ‘den defense’, but really you’re mainly getting a new city to scamper around in and the continuation of the modern-day saga of Desmond. As the title implies, things are revealed, so if you’re a fan of the series you should definitely get caught up and play this latest iteration through to the end.
Matt was supposed to talk about Assassin’s Creed: Revelations, and he does, but since he’s vacationing with family, he also had a chat with his wife and her siblings about the Playstation Move game Carnival Island. He briefly discusses a couple games that helped them pass the time while at the in-laws’ house too, as well as a few portable gems that helped him survive the lengthy road trip it took to get there.
