Back from a nice long European vacation, and I am dying to revisit Assassin's Creed 2. Why? Because I got to romp around Florence, San Gimignano, and the Tuscan countryside. It was wonderful. We also spent a few days in Austria and Finland, which were also great.
Of course, the euphoria faded quickly upon returning to work. Two weeks worth of emails, a half dozen "emergencies", mid week return, and jet lag combine to make a miserable return to reality.
I also realized upon my return that I really didn't beat Dragon's Dogma prior to leaving. Sure, I killed Grigori, but I didn't realize the post-game was a whole different ball game and that the New Game + had to be earned in the gauntlet of the Everfall. So it's like I was gifted a new game upon my return!
