    Uh. Tough one, but... it's Assassin's Creed? If you have any misgivings about the series at all it will wind you up something fierce sooner or later, even with pirate ships and whatnot. I loved it,...

    So don't? :P I may well just skip it myself and wait for The Phantom Pain. But at the same time I can readily see why people are going nuts over it. That's not meant to be completely dismissive, I do...

    I really like a lot of things about The Talos Principle, but Jesus Christ is it upsetting to realise yet again exactly how dumb I am. That's two red rooms I've just spent more than two hours...

    I stress again that on a purely technical level Sakey seems like a reasonably talented writer - he's a good few steps above Dan Brown's crap factory, that's for sure - but yeah, my mind went there...
