We're going to be on our Thanksgiving break next week, so keep your eyes out for a special episode of CO-OP on December 1st that'll be a departure from the norm. We'll be back on December 8th with our regular programming. This week, though, is an almost-special episode thanks to our long-form coverage of Assassin's Creed 2. It's just too big to talk about in the normal time constraints of our show. Enjoy and remember to enjoy your holiday! And by "enjoy," we mean catch up on the holiday gaming rush. It's going to be a HUGE 2010 and you need to get started now ;p

saw the review last night hope i remember it correctly.
i just like to add about its fighting system, its not really all wait for counter in AC1, you can combo attack by timing the clashing of the weapons. when one of the guards get distracted you can kill him using your hidden blade.
my favorite animation in AC1 is killing someone with the knife and before the animation ends for that kill your already throwing a "throw" knife to kill another so as the animation ends two guys are on the ground :D
many people really think its just wait to counter in AC.. haven't played the game yet :| i still have projects to make. thanks for the review its a relief from all zhe haters.

You guys made the point that the 360 version is the superior of the two. How terrible is the graphical difference between the 360 and ps3 versions? I mean, will I notice on an HD enabled 20 inch screen, or should the size of it negate the visual difference?

Hot damn, you guys must've really liked ACII to dedicate a whole episode to it. Still playing so I'm avoiding the episode temporarily for whatever spoilers may come up, but very much an awesome game. I almost can't acknowledge the existence of the first one anymore because this is the game we should've gotten. It's like they had some magic 'monotony begone!' potion.

I got this for my wife for Christmas and am wondering if maybe the PS3 version could be patched or something to bump the quality up. The colors look so much more vibrant in the Xbox version, like more saturation.
It may be a processor issue and it cannot be fixed. Too bad really.

I forced myself to stop listening with 6 minutes left, because you started showing Desmond and Lucy and referencing where the franchise could go.
I'm looking forward to this game way too much to risk a serious Desmond plot spoiler.
