Recently ever since I finished Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood I’ve been ready to get into the next game in the series, Revelations. I mentioned previously that I normally don’t do this to keep a series from getting stale. I haven’t started the next game just yet because I want to experience it as I share it with fellow AC gamer @D_Fleischmann.
In the meantime I’ve been playing Moon Diver. This is a downloadable game on PSN and XBL by FeelPlus and Square Enix. In a similar way it seems akin to how grind heavy Hard Corps: Uprising was for a Contra game. The only difference being Moon Diver is more like another classic arcade game. You may have heard of it; Strider. Both Strider and Moon Diver were directed by Koichi Yotsui.
On the collection front I didn’t buy any new games, but I did want to play some of Final Fight CD with Usagi704. I couldn’t because the audio/video cables weren’t connecting fully to the TV. I did easily find cables that did the job.
I also picked up a used original Super Nintendo controller. It definitely feels used alright. The Start button needs to be pressed down quite a bit for anything to happen. Otherwise it seems to hold up fairly well. This includes fighting games.
Thanks for reading!
