    Assassins creed brotherhood or Fallout new vegas?

    Which game should I buy? I have all the other Assassins creed games but have never played a fallout game. I might be able to buy both but I don´t want to spend that much money.

    Oh God, not Ass's Creed.. I've honestly never seen the appeal of it, much like COD :/ Fallout on the otherhand is a great game, I find it really interesting and unique. I've not played New Vegas but I'm going to get it asap

    Well i played through New Vegas, and it's a good game, i guess (a bit better than fallout 3). It feels alot more like fallout 1 or 2 (in that it throws in some humorous bits to dilute the soul crushing reality of a post apocalyptic desert). If your playing on PC, there are a bunch of pretty sweet mods already (since the game is so simular to fallout 3 that many of the mods are actually compatible). Also, the game is huuuuge (as long as you don't rush your way through the main plot). The shear quantity of work put into it is obvious and downright staggering (I guess it's because they had to put minimal work into the engine/gameplay). Oh yeah, and the PC version is buggy as all hell, totally unfinished, but they should patch that up soon enough.

    'ere, have a review.

    Never really played much Assassins creed, but from what i've read, Brotherhood's main drawcard is the multiplayer.

    Sounds a bit like a blanket statement, loads of people could claim the exact opposite and they'd probably be no more right or wrong.


    I've never played an AC game, so I can't say too much about it. I am playing New Vegas though, the graphic engine is noticeably starting to age, and there's a lot of bugs on the PC-version. But length-wise I think you get bang for your bucks, I'm 44 hours in right now, level 20 and I've still got quite some quests to finish and (new ones to start no doubt), so I wouldn't be surprised if I passed the 60 hours mark before the end of the game. Doesn't quite feel new enough to be considered a true sequel, although I don't think it's supposed to be one. I think I heard they'll use the Rage engine for Fallout 4.

    Fallout just looks so sad. It´s all grey and stuff. And I only own an xbox so no mods for me. But assassins creed also gets kind of repetitive (spelling?). Feel free to suggest other games to if you like. I play games for the story and not so much for the shooting and fighting. I wish I had a ps3 so I could buy Heavy rain.

    It's a dota style 3rd person shooter where the objective is to destroy the money ball. The money ball is not breached unless fodder reaches it, which you have to defend against. You have to build the right turrets in the right places, use your class in the right role, take and hold important spots and coordinate with your team. Each class has 4 upgradable skills and a unique bot they can spawn. there are map hazards you use as well, along with buyable "juice" that lets you go super for a while.

    If you play it like it's a deathmatch, you lose. No depth he says...

    As for story.... no there's no story, not every game needs a story. What they do need is good and unique design, which this game has over the other cheap bland games you mentioned above (glitch-filled FO3.5 or snore-fest ass creed). Plus buying this helps an awesome small studio instead of large studios that really don't need your help.

    Jason, it´s just not my kind of game. I don´t like just running around shooting stuff. It does´nt matter how tactical you have to be. It looks fun if you play it with a bunch of friends, but right now I don´t want that kind of game.

    I wondered the same thing and concluded that I'd go with neither. I had high hopes for FLV but the reviews all said it was so buggy as to be almost unplayable. My 360's been in a cupboard for 6 months and I can see it remaining there until Bioshock Infinite comes out in 2012.

    Ohi, if you're willing to wait till next year how about these:

    Batman:Arkham City, Deux Ex 3, Dead Space 2, Dragon Age 2, The Witcher.


    Or you can probably buy a cheap Mass Effect 1+2 bundle from somewhere. And I always hear people talking almost lovingly about Mafia 1, supposedly it had a really good story. Not sure about Mafia 2.

    From my own experience that's an exaggeration. It's a bit annoying now and then (freezes or people getting stuck in walls, etc) but not quite a deal-breaker in the overall experience.

    My 360's been in a cupboard for 6 months and I can see it remaining there until Bioshock Infinite comes out in 2012.
    That's on my must-play list. I freaking love the art direction of Bioshock.

    I would love if you guys could give me some tips on pretty unknown games. Made by small studios, like Jason did. I believe that indie games or games produced by small studios have alot more heart. And Jason, I changed my mind about Monday Night Combat, I might buy it.

    Midgardserpent: Yeah I´m probably bying Dragon Age 2. I already have dragon age origins and awakening.
