This is not the blog post I need to write...
First, THANK YOU to the random stranger who sponsored a month of pd time on DreamWidth. That was completely unexpected and totally awesome.
Picked up my copy of Assassin's Creed: Revelations Signature Edition yesterday, 2 days after official release date. Would you believe I haven't even started it yet? Yeah. also picked up the Assassin's Creed Lineage dvd as well. Haven't watched it either.
Had to go to three different stores to find the Collector's Edition of the Official Playguide too. Some day I'll find a copy for Assassin's Creed in the Collector's Edition- that doesn't cost an arm and a leg- and have all of them that way.
I did open everything last night, though , and downloaded the Assassin's Creed: Revelations Soundtrack and the Embers animated short film. Listened to much of the soundtrack in the car last night- it makes great driving music, but isn't near long enough.}:P Haven't watched, let alone unzipped, Embers yet. The zip file is 1.9 GIGS in size, so I can only imagine how big it is unzipped. Yeah. Mark's bringing home a 4gig flashdrive to transfer it to, as he has a DVD burner at work and will unzip it there, then burn it on to a dvd so we can watch it on our big flatscreen tv instead of a dinky 17" monitor.
That's really the only complaint I have about the Signature Edition- the movie and soundtrack were downloads. I'd much rather they were on a separate disc than on the same game disc or as a download.}:/
The playguide has great artwork, just like the previous ones. And that's pretty much all I looked at in that. I've been seeing nothing but awesome and great things about the game so far too.
So. After I finish the primer coat in the kitchen, go gravehunting tomorrow, have friends over on Sunday, it looks like Monday will be when I get a chance to sit down and start Assassin's Creed: Revelations. Expect more Assassin's Creed related posts thereafter.}:P I plan to take my time with this one, but well, we all know how that goes...
