Yea, it was my blog's 2nd birthday seven days ago, and just like last year, I was a over a week late! I'm sorry I never get time to post anymore. I have so many things I could write about, like my newfound love of South Park, and my experiences with Xbox Live, DJ Hero, The Beatles: Rock Band, and being pissed about the only person out of most of my friends to not own Modern Warfare 2. But my mom just doesn't let me on the computer as much anymore, so I have to spend my time on my computer doing the things I need to do first (like updating my iPod, and watching more South Park). Before I get on with anything else, I do remember promising myself some goals before the end of last year, some goals specifically relating to this blog. Let's see them again,



As far as I could tell, this was as much progress as I could make with these goals...

  • GOAL ONE: FAILED (87/100 Posts (after that post was made), that's 104 posts less than the total amount of posts I made last year, about 2.1 times less! And only 13 posts away from actually reaching that goal (not including this one).
  • GOAL TWO: DISPUTABLE (I don't really know whether or not I actually burned out. I definetly wasn't losing interest in the blog, it was just a problem of the amount of time I'm allowed on the computer (my mother time-locked me computer -.-) combined with the work I have to do for high school caused me to write very little.)

Well, I would say that I 25% succeeded in my goals -.- . I really don't have a very good excuse for my lack of posting. Heh. I can say, however, that this blog will stay alive, as far as I'm aware. That makes for a good goal I could make for myself right now,

1. Post more. Just a little bit more than I have this year.
2. Play more video games (there has been an astounding shortage of that this year).

I believe I could succeed in both. The past year was definetly an experimental thing for my blog, trying out new looks, trying out some cool features that I could possibly do. I was taking care of the site more than I was actually posting on it. But hear me out, I will try to post a lot this year, not only video game related, but other things I'm interested in as well, so stay tuned! I hope for a good year for not only me but for everyone out there! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year on behalf of myself and my blog :P!

Oh, and thanks for the nice comment, Morley. You're probably the only one other than me to actually remember this blog. :D Thanks for the inspiration to post again!

Assassin's Creed II: The First Day...

Posted by Kaillif [Gloqwi] Ammen Friday, December 4, 2009 2 comments

So Assassin’s Creed II has finally hit YouMedia, and here is my first hour-and-a-half so impression of the game…
The game starts out very slow, giving a short flashback explanation of what had occured in the first game. It was a nice way of bringing back important story details, but according to my friends who had not played the first game were not really sure as to what was happening.
The game seems to expect that you already know what you should do, but even I, who had played the first game, was still very unsure as to what to do, even before I had actually got into the real game. There were no hints as to where you were supposed to go, and the game wasn’t awfully good at explaining the new HUD. It never had explained most of what the markings on the mini-map had met, but thankfully most of the mechanics were the same as the first one.
