In a rather interesting post from Nathan Fouts over at Mommy’s Best Games, the auteur outlines the sales he's achieved with his first effort, Weapon of Choice.
Personally, I think this is a fantastic title that you can't go wrong with. Rather than make a statement myself, I will simply point you in Nathan's direction and let you interpret the numbers on your own.
In DLC news, extra content has been announced for both Dragon Age: Origins and Assassin’s Creed II.
In the case of Dragon Age, the new mission is titled Return to Ostagar. Those already familiar with the game will certainly remember that Ostagar is the location of the intense Lord of the Rings-style battle that basically kicks off the adventure proper.
Not much info is available now, although the official site states that this DLC offers a second chance to recruit Dog, as well as a new set of armor to acquire. I may have had issues with the game, but I certainly enjoyed my time with it and I look forward to this $5 return ticket.
With regard to Assassin’s Creed II, I'm not feeling quite so rosy. The two missions announced are Battle for Forli and Bonfire of the Vanities. Although it's not exactly clear at this moment how they will be integrated with the retail game, it's interesting to note that missions 12 and 13 were not available, with the character in the game calling them "corrupted files".
If you played through and were paying attention, you might have wondered why the game jumped from mission 11 to mission 14, and although it's not for certain, this seems to be somewhat telling.
Over on Etsy, some clever needlepointer has crafted this attractive piece of work:
It can be yours for just $8 plus shipping. Hanging on your wall, or gift it to your favorite Pokemaniac. Chi Kong Lui, I'm looking at you.
