March 8 - March 12
My first inclination was to remove the PC release of Assassin's Creed 2 entirely from The Week Ahead -- to essentially have it stricken from the record. So full is my distaste for the new set of pointless flaming hoops that the misanthropes over at Ubisoft's have erected for us felonious PC users to jump through. But, to deny you the opportunity to not buy Assassin's Creed 2, to attempt to take the decision making process from you, is no better. So, below and here you will find mention of the game's release.
Please do not buy it. And, for the love of God, don't pirate it either.
Besides, there are better things to talk of this week. Even though my weekend saw what is likely the final Red Ring of Death for my launch 360, I find myself rolling with the whole thing pretty well. After all, I'm finally settling into Heavy Rain and Final Fantasy XIII on a PlayStation system just seems right. And, that is my pick for Game of the Week.
Also of note is the expansion to Dawn of War II titled Chaos Rising. DoW2 was one of those games that I always intended to go back and play more of. The right way to describe my time with that game is to say that I dabbled, and this may be the perfect excuse to go back and flesh out my experience.
