random bits

Well I'm still riding a giddy high after watching the Doctor Who 50th anniversary special so there won't be much coherence here today either. Utterly barmy and bonkers but the crazyness was kept to the usual high standard so that's alright by me. But wait where's the videogame content in this blog entry?

Ah here it is. Restarted my adventures in XCOM last night but I'm half-heartedly multi-tasking between that and Assassin's Creed 3 for the time being. Yes Assassin's Creed, those beautifully fluid free running murder simulators that are almost but never quite undone by the utter bollocks that is its ongoing ephemeral dream-like trek through history slash genetic memory slash whatever.

Highly expect this series will collapse under its own nonsense eventually but as far as its third (fifth?) go-around is concerned it works. Still, can't shift the feeling it's going through the motions, a death by franchise if you will. Really I'm storming through it on my way to the gaming nirvana that is XCOM. Should be playing it right now but I'm rewatching Garth Marenghi's Darkplace, where men shoot guns at guns. Why? Because reasons that's why.
