  1. GUYS! I JUST HIT THE JACKPOT! Heads up to all my 90s kids— if you have a Smart TV that gets those subscription services, the Amazon Prime Video one has all of our favorite classic Nick game shows like Double Dare, Legends of the Hidden Temple, Supermarket Sweep, Figure It Out, and GUTS along with the series we loved like Are You Afraid of the Dark, Doug, Hey Dude, Rocket Power, Clarissa Explains It All, The Amanda Show, Ahhh! Real Monsters!, The Angry Beavers, KaBlam, Hey Arnold, Rocko's Modern Life, Kenan & Kel, The Wild Thornberrys, Rugrats, CatDog, All That, and Salute Your Shorts plus a few Nick Jr. shows that some of us liked such as Gullah Gullah Island and Blue's Clues and some of the "old hollywood" classics that used to show at 2 AM on the Nick At Nite segment like I Love Lucy, The Lucy Show, All in the Family, Bewitched, I Dream of Jeannie, Leave It To Beaver, The Jeffersons, and The Dick Van Dyke Show. There are a couple of old Cartoon Network classics like The Jetsons and The Flintstones, as well. Amazon Prime Video streaming is free to anyone who is already subscribed to the Amazon Prime located on Amazon's website that gives you the free 2-day shipping, but some of the shows require an additional subscription to Paramount+. It's only $5.99 a month (or $9.99 for the commerical-free version), though. You're welcome! 😁

      Only like Ren&Stimpy, Rocko, and own the entire series for both. But still cool and a fair deal!

      Now if there was one that had I Am Weasel, Cow and Chicken, etc. yeee

      You’re giving me a nostalgia attack, literally. 
       

      Will have to look into the subscription.

      Right? I was so excited!

  2. I'm not really looking forward to just running around trophy hunting on AC III at the moment, so I'm watching my favorite childhood show— the original version of Are You Afraid of the Dark? 😁

      Lonely Ghost, Midnight Madness (because I love Nosferatu), Dead Man's Float, Dollmaker, Frozen Ghost, Curious Camera, Night Shift, Super Specs, and Nightly Neighbors come to mind.

      Ah, sorry, Midnight Madness is the one I meant caused the nightmares. Couldn't quite get it off the top of my head so I searched "AYAOTD vampire" and ended up choosing the first (and wrong) result 😅

      Yeah, I can see that. Nosferatu is an old classic. I distinctly remember that his abnormally long fingers creeped me out as a kid.

      I did, but I'm probably going back to sleep. lol Thanks!

  4. Whoever buys it, I hope they give us an updated trilogy (like the Spyro one) of the GEX trilogy!
  5. [Assassin's Creed III] Well, I guess that's it then. This game was surely a solid 5/10. 🙄 Now, I'm just going to pick away at the trophies for the next whenever until the platinum pops. As far as American history goes, this game was really crappy. I'm usually a stickler for historical accuracy, but Ubisoft made my country's history so boring in this game that I definitely would have preferred the whole theme of Ronald Reagan riding a velociraptor while firing an AR-15. lol

      In my opinion the setting was unnecessary. There weren't recognizable monuments at the time of the setting like all the temples in Firenze or Italy, or the Piramids in Egypt, or the temples in Greece or any other European country with several centuries of history. That is because weren't ancient empires in the territories that later became the U.S. 

       

      If they wanted to go on an have a game taking place in the American continent they should have chosen Mexico or Peru since those two countries had big empires and other several ancient cultures in this side of the World.

       

      The protagonist doesn't help much either, it feels like he is missing something which is a personality of his own. At least I had some fun going for the 100% syncronization, but the requirement to complete all challenges in a single run was really annoying for some of the memories. I really wish The Ezio Trilogy or Black Flag had a 100% in-game completion trophy though. 

    2. Kristen Danielle

      True. The American Civil War and the abolition of slavery would have been a better setting, as well. One could have had John Wilkes Booth as a Templar and the Assassin playable character just seconds too late to prevent Lincoln's assassination. There is also the 1880s in America, when the Statue of Liberty was delivered as a gift from France and was still copper in color. All in all, though, I really think that they could have kept the American Revolution theme and just done a better job. It felt, at times, that they were actively trying to play it down— especially with some of Shaun's remarks. Some of his banter was funny, but there was one section where he started calling the founding fathers "sexist, racist, homophobic hypocrities" and I was like "Okay, shut up now, Ubisoft."

  6. [Assassin's Creed III] I am beginning to get absolutely sick of this game. I cannot even walk around a city without getting attacked by groups of 15 or more guards at one time and I cannot defeat them because they changed the way the combat was done from the way it was in the Ezio Collection and I have crappy weapons because I can't get the dang recipes from the chests to make the stronger ones due to the said 15 guards at one time scenario. The hidden blade is practically powerless outside of story missions and every weapon in the game is locked until I find these chests. AC III is officially absolute crap compared to AC II, ACB, and ACR. Connor controls very clunkily and is constantly falling off of buildings, which is a problem I never had when controlling Ezio. I just don't get it. The mechanics are so terrible that it's getting to the point that nothing is enjoyable any more and that's not to mention the RIDICULOUS full sync requirements and the fact that you have to get them all in one go now. Did Ubisoft make this game when they were stoned or something?

      That's the one! Big G Washington playing bowling in the end  and Connor going back to his ex-tribe.

      Hope you will like the DLCs. That's some crazy history spin

      If you’re going for the platinum trophies in these Assassin’s Creed games,  I’d definitely focus on doing the online for Black Flag and Unity first. Unity at least has co op missions that are... slightly interesting? I wasn’t a big fan of them. Black Flag’s multiplayer is a big slog. 

  7. Bed time for real now, but first...

  9. @AK-1138 That was adorable. lol I feel like that sometimes!
  10. I ordered a copy of Dante's Inferno from the UK so I could play my UK Trials of St. Lucia DLC with it (my silly little PS3 doesn't have enough storage to have the digital version on its hard drive) and this is the path it has taken to me upon arriving in the US. The United States Postal Service, everyone— a model of ineptitude and inefficiency. 🙄

  13. [Assassin's Creed III] Okay, so this is beginning to show a little more American sass, now. I loved the mission where I had to blow up two British ships and when I was done, replace their flag with the new Betsy Ross American flag as a giant display of GFY. lol

  14. [Assassin's Creed III] I am beginning to see what people meant about the Ezio trilogy being FAR superior to the subsequent games. This game is really shaping up to be extremely low effort on Ubisoft's part. They're also essentially crapping on our illustrious American history with their character development. Paul Revere was made into an obnoxious little sissy who can't ride a horse by himself and the famed "Midnight Ride" is honestly the most annoying and boring mission I've ever played. It is so lackluster compared to what it could have been. While it is true that three men rode that night and basically just knocked on doors to inform people, they could have easily gone with the Longfellow poem's account of Revere riding on his own shouting "The British are coming!" to make it more fun. This is historical fiction, after all. Even the Boston Tea Party mission wasn't that great. Throwing the tea boxes into the harbor was clunky and looked dumb and the cutscenes could have had more of a... what phrase am I looking for here... ah! More of a "SHOVE IT, BRITAIN" feel to them. lol We American patriots are a rowdy bunch and I feel that this portrayal isn't really showcasing that as well as it could have. I have also discovered a crapload of glitches that are beginning to get on my nerves. I keep having to leave the Animus to reset the maps and such.

      @Kristen Danielle I think what you have to keep in mind is that Assassin’s Creed as a franchise has been butchering and undermining historical records in every entry - this just happens to be the first one where it is modern enough, and close enough to you personally, to be obvious and to stick out to you.

       

      I’d imagine descendants of the Borgias would have a similar attitude about the Ezio games 😂

      You have to come to terms with the fact that ACIII in particular is anti-revisionist to a fault, in addition to playing fast and loose with history. Most of what is actually taught in schools and such is very prettied up; understandably so, as adolescence can be hard enough without dealing with the nuances and dissonance of more factual historical accounts. It's really a bit more up to oneself to ascertain the "facts", or at least what is accepted as such (history is written by the victors and all that), after the, ummm, fact.

       

      ...Unfortunately, ACIII does tend to overdo it in this regard. Combine the stinging sarcasm seemingly endemic to the French with contemporary writers' tendency towards on emphasizing negativity, and you end up with something that ain't no "RAH RAH MURICA" story at all. It's more of a story of how America became what it is despite all of the wanton cruelty and dispassionate pragmatism of conquest and war, rather than because of it. History is what it is--the ink is dry--and we have to live with it and learn from it what we can, be it good or bad.

       

      It's not everyone's--ahem--cup of tea, but I for one, like what it's doing more than not... not least because it is a risk to take for a AAA game.

      Not necessarily, I tend to sleep sometimes around 10 - 12 AM, wake up and can’t sleep again until 7 - 8 AM when the sun is already up. 
       

      I worked years at a Dollar Tree warehouse. 50 - 60 hour weeks, six days a week, one day off. I stayed up thru the early morning because that was the only real free time I had, didn’t come home until 3 in the morning. 
       

      Can’t do that anymore. Maybe if I was 20 - 25 years old again. My body gets too worn out from that real hard physical work.
