It’s been a few weeks now since my last daily gaming news item for Game Console on Techday.com.
My new-found spare time has enabled me to get on with tieing up loose end in the likes of Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood, The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion and Batman: Arkham City in preparation for the imminent arrive of their sequels.

I’m currently well and truly caught up in the hype for November’s Assassin’s Creed Revelations. Having reviewed the last two Assassin’s Creed games, I’d be buggered if I’ll spoil the gaming experience by have to rush though Revelations in order to shit out a review for a web deadline. No, I’ve got my Assassin’s Creed Revelations Animus Edition for the Xbox 360 all reserved nicely, as every smart gamer should and I’ve going to play it in my own time.

After my Assassin’s Creed 2 hands-on with Patrice Désilets over at Ubisoft’s Sydney headquarters, I later had the opportunity to review the game for NetGuide magazine.
Playing the game in the comfort of my own home, and not (badly) in front of the game’s creative director was a lot less nerve-racking. What’s amazing about the Assassin’s Creed series is just how much each game improves over the last. Whilst Assassin’s Creed was a very intelligetnly written game, it only really served as a prelude to the incredible gaming experiences that were to come.
Check out this bit of Halo 4/ Forza 4 news from yesterday (that got lost in my inbox).
