    Whaddaya mean the ending to Assassin’s Creed sucked? If you’re referring to the, walk around the room aimlessly, then I agree completely (though there are a few “puzzles” to do), but if you mean the (spoilers ahead) Boss Assassin going all apeshit and attacking you in fucked up ways… well that was awesome! :)

    I have to admit when I heard all this console garbage I was about to remove my subscription because honestly I can get that kind of ass reporting and talk from a shitty Gamespot podcast, but as long as you keep ripping MMO’s or having a blog – o – steria thing going on I am still game.

    Oh wait…

    I don’t see it on the program notes WTF.
