Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhoo-ooh a distraction!

Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhoo-ooh a distraction!

Are Ubisoft taking a chill break after releasing Brotherhood or something? A few things are weird about the whole release of this game… Don’t get me wrong, the game is magnificent, I love it and I can’t wait to go upstairs and play more but seriously, what’s gone on?

First of all, the game said it was being released on the 19th of November and I pre-ordered it on Amazon and received my copy on Thursday the 18th. So naturally I was like “BONUS I GOT IT EARLY!” running around informing everyone. However, after I told my lady friend from Sweden she immediately went to her game store out there and bought it off the shelf the same day. A day early…

Okay I won’t complain about that because it’s amazing, we got it a day early, w00t! and all that. What I will complain about is that they still haven’t added image data to the dashboard to tell other people that you are playing Brotherhood. You know when you look at your friends on the Dashboard for various stalking purposes? >_> Well you can always see what they are up to right? WRONG! If they are playing Brotherhood it just shows the “I’m sitting on the dashboard =D” image that you usually see while they are watching Netflix or indeed sitting on the Dashboard. Even in my “Recently played” section of the Dashboard tells me I’ve recently been playing the awesome games LEFT 4 DEAD 2!, FALLOUT NEW VEGAS! AND MOST RECENTLY!!!!!! The Xbox Live Dashboard…

With my mild OCD, things like this do my nut! Just like when I earned an 8G Achievement and it ruined my Gamerscore by making it end in something other than a 5 or a 0. So I had to do MATHS to figure out what other dumb G scores I had to get on that stupid Watchmen game to transform my score back to normal again… MATHS!

Okay, getting off topic here, all I’m saying is please Ubisoft, give me a basic Jpeg image in my recently played box… There’s one below if you are too busy to look for one.

  1. I think you should have these kind of conversations with a therapist?

  2. Actually, I know what you mean. There’s a 3G achievement in Ironman 2 (at least, I think it’s that game) which has since given me an odd GS. It unsettles me too!

    (Mark may have a point, though …)

  3. I’m playing Brotherhood on PS3 at the moment and I am loving it! I have had a few problems with trophies failing to unlock which is a real pain in the ass, but besides that it is a wicked game!

    The Orange Box was bad for odd number achivement points. You would unlock an achievement for about 4Gs which was odd, and almost entirely pointless. =P

  4. One word. G.R.A.W. Okay, four words technically. An achievement for 8G’s? Are you kidding me? Get the hell out.

    I’m with Steve on this one.
