    Hey man, I saw that you played through Assassin's Creed 4 in one of the gaming threads. That's cool, I always enjoyed the series despite their numerous flaws (2 was my favorite, followed closely by 4, then probably Brotherhood, which was a sequel to 2).

    Anyway, being that I know your gaming tastes pretty well, as they correlate with mine a lot, especially with action-adventure games, I have to ask: have you ever tried the Batman: Arkham games? They are among my favorite games of the past generation of consoles.

    Batman: Arkham Asylum is the first game and I think you owe it to yourself to try it out. The structure is very much like Metroid Prime, in that you are increasingly expanding your exploration options the more you collect new weapons and tools, often revisiting previous areas. The atmosphere of the game is among the best of any; I can distinctly remember locations of the game much like I remember Metroid Prime's areas.

    Combat is, at least conceptually, somewhat similar to Assassin's Creed (actually, I think AC has been borrowing mechanics from Batman lately, as have other games). It is extremely fast-paced and fluid. It's simple to learn and not complex as far as button-presses are concerned initially, but it gets to be pretty thrilling as the game adds combos to use and tougher enemies. It's actually probably my single favorite fighting system of an action-adventure series as of right now.

    There's a ton of exploration and secrets to find, requiring use of multiple tools that Batman has. There's a puzzle-solving element to it too, but it's very environment-based and not the slowed down style that recent Zeldas have had (again, I have to relate it back to Metroid Prime in that regard).

    The game is simply incredible. It's sequel, Arkham City, is also top-notch, but it entirely switches up the structure to be more like an open-world Grand Theft Auto (or AC) game with "missions" scattered throughout. I prefer Asylum's more tightly structured, Metroid-esque world that still offers plenty of opportunities to experiment and explore. There's also a prequel game, Arkham Origins (made by a different company, but still based on the same mechanics and everything), and the new one coming out next year, Arkham Knight.

    I don't know how familiar you are with the Batman universe, but I have absolutely no interest in comic books and the only Batman knowledge I had prior were from the recent Christopher Nolan films, so don't think you need to be a fan of Batman to enjoy it. In fact, the game will probably be what makes you more of a fan.

    Anyway, I just wanted to throw this out to you since you seem to be trying out some new stuff.

    Ah, thank you

    From what I've heard, it sounds like it'll mostly focus on circuit theory for the first.. 1/3 or so of the course, which was covered in our magnetism-electricity based physics course and the electronics courses I took back in high school, so I hopefully I won't find it too difficult.

    I want to join but I have lots of stuff to be doing, though I'll likely give it some time still and participate. I haven't read V yet! I will definitely do it before the next one so I'm up to date.
