I went to the Eurogamer expo with [ profile] flying_girl73 today! It was the first thing of this kind I'v been to and it was pretty fun! I got to try demos of Mass Effect 3, Uncharted 3 multiplayer (no story, boo), Rift for... some reason, Arkham City, Assassin's Creed: Revelations and a bunch of other stuff. I also won a keyring for knowing Mr. Freeze's real name and where Batman's parents were killed, which was both kind of nice and a crippling conformation of my nerdiness.

Mass Effect 3 was the demo that was available in America with no new stuff. I was pleased to see the krogan princess irl though, her design looks great (I didn't realise she was wearing a veil!). I also liked that they retained the different-guns-do-different-stuff thing, so I could switch up to deal with shields and armour. On a more embarassing note, it took me ten minutes to work out how to climb a ladder. Damn those Ceberus fiends and their complicated technology!

Assassin's Creed: Revelations was just the multiplayer, which is more or less the same as Brotherhood multiplayer but streamlined a bit more- choosing ability sets is easier, I found that bleding worked a little better, etc. It's also set in somehwere new (middle east?) and I really enjoyed seeing the new character models. The lady models all look super fun! I wonder if you could cosplay them.

Arkham City was also really fun. Playing as Catwoman was great, and I loved her capoeira-y fighting style. It looked very awesome and graceful, and quite different from Batman's. Batman himself is pretty much as he was in Arkham Asylum! However it looks like he has some new gadgets (got to use a radio scanner) so that'll be fun. There's also more crime scene-y elements (the demo ended with trying to work out a bullet trajectory). They redacted the impirtant plot details during cutscenes, which got kind of confusing!

Uncharted 3 multiplayer was super hard because I am a complete dweeb at that kind of thing, but at least it was pretty!

(I also had a guy hit on me while I was playing Mass Effect 3, which was... interesting.)

I leave you with the only celebrity I met:
