Is anybody else completely bored with AC:B? I've completed the game, both DLCs, and all the faction quests. I can't find anything remotely interesting to do now other than roam the streets slaughtering Borgia soldiers. (It really makes no sense that the Borgia soldiers are even around anymore since their influence has been wiped out and the Borgias have been eliminated.) I have no desire to replay the game from the begining. Anyone have any fun ideas for AC:B? I'm really hoping to figure something rather than just waiting for ACIII.

The multiplayer is really the only thing I care about it, but since I'm stuck with a buggy laptop, I can't even do that many days.

I started ACI briefly. I only played up until Altair was demoted. I guess I got spoiled with parts from ACII & AC:B (maps and more fluid game motions). I might pick it back up.

Eagle's Bruise. Beat the game only with hand-to-hand combat, no weapons. Makes for a much more challenging and fun experience.

Sounds challenging as hell, but my favorite thing about the game is the use of weapons. Well, maybe second behind the storyline.

This. Also, play it without a minimap and try to find clues on your own. It's much harder, but also more fun! Smile

The one with Copernicus was a DLC, but it was free. It was actually just as entertaining as the Da Vinci DLC.

Copernicus was and is PS3 exclusive, sadly. Sad

I was going to record all the Corpinicus DLC missions but got so bored after the first one. I uploaded one, but the rest are just time trials.

The final one is an assassination mission. The time trials are actually really easy. Much easier than the thief races.

I got an email about it this afternoon. Evidently somebody hacked their system and stole everyone's information: email address, address, etc. Hope they get that figured out soon.

Don't know anything about Little Big Planet. What's the premise?

Users are inspired to create their own levels, originally side-scrolling, but tools are available to make other genres like shooters and such. Very simple controls. Use Xbox X button to jump, Analog stick to move around, and PS3 R1 button to grab/grapple. It's extremely fun, but most prefer it playing with friends. It's a very social game. I've always had fun with it. I think it's worth it if you either have close online friends and/or hang out with gaming buddies. Glasses

Thanks for the suggestion, but I really don't play online. I haven't played AC:B multiplayer.

You probably shouldn't at the risk that you'll become reliant on online gaming and resist singleplayer campaigns. That's how I turned out (mostly), though I do love a good singleplayer playthrough, if I play something too often and everything seems redundant, I'll whip out a multiplayer game. It's the unpredictability factor that I love, and many other gamers do, as well. If only I just stuck with it.

...My point is, keep doing what you're doing. XD

I know the time trials are easy, thats the point. They arent challenging and they arent fun, they are like a chore.

Playing AC1 again has really brought back a lot of memories to me as a gamer. It's a good release from ACB.

Playing AC1 reminded me of how many little animation and gameplay glitches have been fixed sine AC1. And even since AC2!

Some stuff has gotten worse. Stationary High Profile from behind was one of my favorite kills, it looks pathetic in this game, you practically go straight through them every time.
