No co-op yet.

MP otherwise is smooth. My australian buddy and I were both on red bar ping(I'm playing through VPN until proper UK release) playing with Europeans and it worked well enough that we didn't suffer in our scores.

Best Buy has Assassin's Creed Revelations for 34.99 plus free shipping right now, might actually buy it at that price despite still playing Skyrim and screwing around with Rocksmith.

Local used game shop has FF3 for DS on sale. I haven't played the original so I don't know what FF3 is like. Is it worth my time/money?

To elaborate: It is such a painful grindfest beyond all painful grindfests. You will have to grind for hours just to barely squeak past the most current boss (and the fact that you can't actually buy Phoenix Downs [which are pretty rare] nor are there really any MP healing items is just rubbing salt in the wounds). The best grinding spot in the game is only good for getting your party up to level 50 or so and then you have to solo-grind and can only make it to 65 or so without any difficulty. And then there's the fact that all of the enemies got insanely strengthened to account for there only being a max of 3 on the screen, and all of the classes were nerfed in spite of this. From what I've heard, Final Fantasy IV's DS remake is just as bad.

Huh. I guess that's not getting my Christmas money then. I thought they had made some improvements to the class system compared to the original.

I do have FF4 DS, and haven't found it a grindfest really. In fact, I don't think I've really level-grinded at all. The only reason I haven't finished FF4 DS yet is that I'm still grinding for the frigging pink tails.

Is FM12 (Football Manger 2012) worth getting?
Have a question about a book or academic article before you buy it? Maybe I have it!
