1. One of my favourite things is finding new modes for multiplayer gaming. Today I learned that some recent Assassin’s Creed games have a “Wanted” mode, which seems very nice, at least from the video. If not for my poor opinion of Assassin’s Creed, I’d be looking forward to trying it.
2. I don’t remember where, but recently I heard about Felix the peacful monk – a guy playing Skyrim without killing anyone (but actually playing and completing missions, not just calmly enjoying the world). I loved it – another one to my series of “FPS gaming not based on walking around shooting stuff”.
3. I finished Trine last weekend – great game. I really loved the thief and wizard’s mechanics, they should appear more in platformers. Also, I think this game is a great example of inserting combat for no reason – the combat is just annoying in my opinion. I think they only put it there because too many people see it as unthinkable to have a game without combat these days.
4. Gog.com is having a sale, 50% off all games in the Might & Magic universe. If you’re like me and love the Heroes of Might & Magic series, you might want to check it out – each of the first four games is 4.99$ for this weekend.
 Yes, I know Skyrim isn’t technically an FPS, but it’s close enough for me.
 Am I starting to turn into an anti-gaming-violence crusader? I really don’t object to combat in games, I just think people are doing it so much, they are overlooking other, potentially interesting ideas.
