The old style was fine, just more of a focus on stealth over combat, the real problem was running the formula into the ground with like 8 annual releases.

The modern story was a lot more prominent and coherent in the first few games, until it was more or less wrapped up in 3/4.

That said, I haven't played them myself in a while, and I imagine 1 is rough. You could probably youtube the important stuff and skip to the Ezio games.

The original game looks great with the One X enhancements, but it's very repetitive and clunky by modern standards. I remember even in ~2012 people recommending to read the story online and dive into AC2. I fired it up to see how it looked with the facelift and it was okay to dabble in for a few hours, but I definitely didn't have the patience to do more than that.

Confused by this comment - the Ezio Collection is the AC2 trilogy - i.e. AC2/Brotherhood/Revelations

There are quite a few callbacks to Altair in the AC2 trilogy, so I always think it's a mistake to play it without knowing the AC1 story.


The Ezio Trilogy doesn’t include AC1, so I’ll wait til that’s on sale before playing AC2. I have already played Revelations and Brotherhood on the 360.

Interesting, starting with Revelations must have been a bit confusing.

The side missions in AC1 were definitely repetitive - this was greatly improved in AC2+.  I still think it has one of the best main storylines of the pre-Origins games though.

It was, but to be fair I’m one of those people who doesn’t care much for the modern day overarching story. I prefer the ancient assassin gameplay.

Most of the DLC is bad. War of the Chosen is the only one that matters. Whatever's cheapest including that is your best bet.

I'm considering the purchase of the Pinball FX3 Marvel Pinball Season One pack, but I already own most of these tables on Pinball FX2.  

 

I know that Pinball FX2 has been de-listed, but is it still possible to import the tables that I already own on Pinball FX2 to Pinball FX3?

 

I've tried to do it a few times, and it isn't working.  And I'd like to decide if I need to spend the money on Season One before it goes off sale.

Bloomy, your scan picked up some repeats from last week.
Also, AC1 is basically a tech demo. Play it if you really want, but 2 is so much more polished.

I will probably grab the Blizzard game collection when it's under $10. I have fond memories of Rock N' Roll Racing

 

 

I'll also be watching Capcom Arcade Stadium when it comes out on Xbox. This one I'm not sure about though. I think 8 of the 32 games were already released in Capcom Beat 'Em Up and the 30th Street Fighter Anniversary Collection, which I already have. Some of the games are also in the collection that released on Xbox 360 called Capcom Arcade Cabinet, which I don't own, but I don't know if that game has save states and rewind functions.

 

Every single one of these collections have a couple unique titles, so it's kind of annoying
