Tomb Raider: The word from a non-cheater

Demon Lord here. It is my understanding that a filthy cheat-bag hack may have already commented on this game, but I don't care. I've not read what he has to say as I don't read anything lying sacks of cheat have to say. I need to comment briefly on this. Although the new Tomb Raider mini-game is different, I like it. No, it isn't nearly as in depth or large as its predecessors. Yes it does focus a lot on 'team' play. Or at least a pairing of two. But my point is this. Finally, that skinny chick isn't the only means of completing one of these adventures. Like a woman could pull of the heroics that she handles. Ha, I say, ha! Now the developers got a step closer towards making sense out of things. Taking me out of a world that is clearly a video game and immersing me in a place and a time that I can believe in. A place where a girl can't get the job done without a large, strapping man to hold her pretty hand. When his round, supple biceps thrust forth that shield so she can gingerly jump off it. Come on, now I'm in this thing! As he plants his firm feet and sprays his hard spear into oncoming foes, I become one with the reality of this world. Demon Lord out.

Assassins Creed: Brotherhood, got to love brotherhood

Demon Lord here. Filling you in on my exploits on an adventure about man love. That is the love of a brotherhood. I've spent a fair share of time with this period roof diver of a game and I must say, overall I like it. It turns out it can be quite fulfilling diving off a rooftop, wind in your hair (or hood rather) only to have it end by penetrating a man's flesh deeply and sending him to an eternal sleep. Albeit, the clothing is limited. My avatar's clearly superior, masculine physique was endlessly cloaked in layers of assassin garb, but I could at least change the color, so that was nice. Now, I must admit. The brotherhood element of it was mildly weak. Yes, you can save the lives of abused men, only to have them serve your every whim. And it is nice to whistle and have them jump an opponent at will, but the leveling up of my man-servants was anti-climatic. I don't know about you, but when I'm training guys, I like it to result in a good climax. Other than that, the gameplay was good, the graphics pristine and it made for an enjoyable ride. The multiplayer was surprisingly fun as well. Ryan, however is a filthy cheating tramp. Just saying.  Demon Lord out.
