@ PBX Funny you should say that, I'm planning going into Rocksmith in future articles. I haven't had the chance to pick up Rocksmith yet but how are you finding it?

@alextweedehands Using C++ and a Gameboy Advance emulator to currently do the Space Invaders one. Yes a lot of patience is required for it haha, does get tested some days more than others! The threats to chuck the darn laptop out the window has been mentioned several times. Thanks :-)

@alextweedehands Thanks for the comment Alex! It's been a bit of a tough start to this degree but I'm getting there. Currently trying to reimplement Space Invaders for one of my assessments. No easy task I tell you but it's slowly coming together! Like you said, it really does open your eyes when you start doing things for yourself. Even on a small scale I'm sitting there with a pile of errors and no clue where to begin! More fun shall come I guess as the years go on :P
@PaulIzod @alextweedehands @KirstySays Yeah the series definately has bee going downhill but I always put that down to the fact that they were just trying to stretch out the Ezio story, hence the reason I was so excited for AC3 but it's been a bit of a disappointment. Don't get me wrong, the gameplay that I've grown to love is still there but just feel like it's not fitting right in my heart :( Sad times.

@PaulIzod @KirstySays @alextweedehands It is kind of milking the cow a bit now and I really hate to say that O_OThink I might be having second guesses about getting the next installment.
@PaulIzod @alextweedehands Word is, as of yesterday, that Mirrors Edge 2 is in production *yay* but this could be a case of rumours flying around etc.
The article was an interesting read and something I've been thinking about recently ever since completing ACIII. Now the AC series I love, adore, will go out and buy all the other merch that goes along with it no problem. As with any AC fan, I went along to a midnight launch, got the game and played it when I could play it inbetween uni and other things. To me, the ending left me feeling disappointed and the game itself was a bit of a disappointment in terms of it took them three years to build this and there was still a lot of bugs. It seems to me that now, even Ubi are doing this with AC. Maybe just me feeling like that but I can't help think they're just thinking about the money.
Personally, I will normally search around to see what's on offer for pre ordering titles. If I'm just wanting the stand alone game (no DLC, extra flashy collectors items that I can show off to my friends) then I'm more looking on price. My most recent purchase when it's came down to collectors edition has been for the AC3 Freedom edition. As far as I was concerned, no retailers were doing this edition apart from Ubisoft themselves through their Ubishop. Safe to say, I was more than happy to pre-order with them and the item got delivered before the release date and came to me in perfect condition. Only issue I had with them was I was unable to change the delivery address which meant it went back to my home instead of my student halls but nothing too major.
