I don't post much on the weekends...

But two things have come up that need to be recorded:

1. The end of Assassins Creed 3 was a huge disappointment. There is a last minute twist regarding the precursors and who is on what side and then Desmond dies. That's it. Some effort is made to wrap up Conner's story arc, but that, too, ends with an unexplained twist that I am pretty sure is nothing more than a way to unlock cheats for a second play through. I was not impressed.

2. I played a little bit of Sony's Super Battle Smash Rip Off game after failing to return some RAM to Best Buy because I lost the receipt. It is absolute butts. Think Smash Brothers, which is already more button resiliency tester than game, and cross it with Thrill Kill without all the tongue in cheek S&M. Yes, I am well aware that Smash can be played at a high level when all of the items are removed and play limited to a few specific levels, but that is like saying Star Wars: Masters of the Teras Kasi is a great fighting game if you only play as Luke and Vader. If you have to put that many qualifications on liking something then it isn't worth the effort.

The point is, Playstation All Star Battle Royal is, at first look, less of a fighting game than Smash. There will not be a second look.
