I totally am the Keeper of the Creed

Took a small break from my new crack (Magician’s Quest Mysterious Times) last night to run around in Assassin’s Creed. Earned two achievements, one of which was story-based. The other, however, I’m pretty pleased with. See below:

Keeper of the Creed
(10G): Find All Flags in Masyaf.

Hidden throughout the main hubs of the game world are flags. Some are easy to spot, glistening on top of roofs, but the majority are hidden in nooks and behind buildings or down alleys that have to be walked. The flags do nothing; it’s just something to collect. But it calls out to my OCD and therefore all must be gathered. And there were 20 flags to be hidden in Masyaf, and I found them all without the use of a map or guide, which makes me feel pretty darn good. Granted, there were only 20, and some of the other cities have a ton more to find, but I’ll keep my eyes peeled.

The start of becoming the greatest wizard of all time

Okay, I gave into the crack and thanks to some bonus b-day money I now own a copy of Magician’s Quest Mysterious Times.

And so far, after about forty minutes of play, I’m digging it. Of course, the entire time I’m comparing it to Animal Crossing: Wild World, and so with that MQMT has much sharper graphics, a better menu system, deeper pockets (!!!), and a wider selection of things to do, see, interact with, and collect. I’ve only just started taking classes at my school (properly named Hogwarts) and am still figuring out what exactly I should be focusing on, but yes, so far, it’s pretty much what I wanted.
