I’ve never really liked any of the “Prince of Persia” games, they just never really did it for me. Even last year when Ubisoft decided to go in a new direction and style for the series, I found it a bit meh. Sure, the game looked nice, and I guess that sort of exploration was all well and good, just not for me. I wish they were my cup of tea, because on paper it seems like something I’d really enjoy. I mean, dude can slow down time, is a badass swordsman, and can do all sorts of parkour style stunts including running along cliff walls. For some reason, all of that never translates into fun in my eyes. I feel like it’s that way with tons of gamers; that PoP is just one of those middle of the road series, selling just enough to warrant sequel after sequel. I know there must be a fanbase for the series, I also know it’s not me. Well, Ubisoft doesn’t seem to worry much about that, as they are gearing up for yet another sequel in “Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands”. The title is going to be launching on all next-gen consoles, and according to the press release will tap into the Wii’s reserves for the best graphics we’ve seen. I guess we’ll have to wait to actually see if they also manage to make the experience something I want to play. You know, because Ubisoft really needs to make games that I want to play. You can find the aforementioned press release, as well as a few screenshots of “The Forgotten Sands” below. I’m also going to post a video of clips from “So I Married An Axe Murderer” below that, because it’s Mrs. Mike’s favorite movie and today is her birthday. Happy Birthday babe & thanks for everything you do (which includes making sure I get off my butt and keep The Spin running)! Enjoy, and stay thirsty my friends.
