Since I got myself a console for Christmas (last gen, not next), I've been able to try out some new things!
Dragon's Crown has pretty tight controls for a brawler, which I like. You kinda have to get over the art style if you want to play it, though. The Amazon's particularly distracting, and not in a good way; the way they have her run is just...guh. Still, game-wise, it's scratching my brawler itch pretty well.
Assassin's Creed IV, on the other hand, is consuming entire days of my life. I read a review that said the game felt a lot like a modern upgrade of the Sid Meier's Pirates! games and, once you get far enough into the story that it will let you sail around freely, it really does. Sure the sailing controls on a controller are really awkward, but once you get used to them you can more or less ignore that awkwardness for the open sea. Good gosh I hadn't realized how much I missed Pirates, at least the good parts of it. And the sea shanties! If anything makes the long voyages seem less long, it's listening to pirates in high spirits passing the time with a few shanties. Good fun! ^.^
