Well, another game down. Velvet Assassin a stealth shooter but really move of a steath stabber. It's a lot sneaking around, as you'd guess but I really started to enjoy this title especially these last few weeks. The game mechanics leave much to be desired, but I'm pretty forgiving as long as you let me use my mouse and keyboard. If you are gonna play it, I suggest the hardest setting. It is a really good game, and actually very disturbing subject matter towards the end of the game. A really thought provoking title because of the way they handled the story which is loosly based on Violette Szabo. Szabo turns out was captured after a fierce gun battle, was later tortured and killed, and in this title they somewhat captured the desperation and helplessness of that last battle. Of course it doesn't quite end like that, but a fair and unusual ending - very few game makers choose to end there games quite like this. If you can get past the wonky controls, and you like stealth games - you'll find this a bit of a rare gem.I seem to like it more than most of the Xboxers on here, but I played the PC version. What is to become of Violette? I hope she makes another appearance someday soon.
Also, i'm going on Vacation ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh. That sound is me sitting on a beach drinking a beer. :D
But first i'm leaving for Vegas tommorow for my brothers wedding at the Monte Carlo. I'm not big into Vegas, but it should be fun before I turn around and head back west, then north.
So what game should I go on to now that fills this void? I've heard Dead Space is a solid choice, but I still have COD5 to finish and i want to get it done before Modern Warfare 2 comes out. What about Mirror's Edge? Wanted Weapons of Fate? Crystatis? Any opinions on those titles welcome.
Anyway ya'll have a nice couple weeks.
