re: Thoughts on Assassin's Creed origins?
I've played them all with kb/m so just decided to start it that way. Doesn't seem like it would be too difficult to switch to controller midway through.

I'm enjoying it, but like another poster mentioned I have been skipping side quest cut scenes. They are just uninteresting. I can forgive the repetitive nature of side quests (go get this, rescue him, kill those guys), because even Witcher 3s side quests were like that. But there was just something about the way Witcher 3 structured the story around those basic fetch quests that made them seem to have way more depth.

I like that they took some notes from Witcher 3 and more developers would be wise to do the same. But it also draws more comparisons in terms of depth and story, which may not work out in their favor.

I agree.

Recommended skipping all cutscenes which aren't main quest. Mainly to not get burned out on the game from the volume of quests. This is a long game.

I think that is a mistake. There are some interesting/funny cutscenes/ dialogue on side quests.

re: Thoughts on Assassin's Creed origins?
I’ve enjoyed the game so far. This is my first AC since the original. The whole backtrack with your horse got old on me quick. For the “boss” missions do you feel like you have to be on the recommended level or should I go a few levels above? I’ve got about 2 hours in and have finished the 4-5 side missions in the opening city. TIA!

Just 100%ed the achievements. Definitely one of my favorite exploring games. But I wasn't really a fan of the story. It was just so choppy. Also since I discovered all the locations before I did any of the main quest I was level 40 when i should have been level 12. It kinda was too easy going through the story after that.

For those who have finished?

Edt: I also don't understand the 1st Civ talking about events yet to happen in 2012.

OK I just saw something completely bad ass, I was swimming over to Giza and a croc attacked, as usual the annoying guy in a raft shows up and would leave me alone so I hop on. While crossing up ahead of me a croc and hippo were fighting and the hippo was tossing the poor bastid around like a rag doll, tossed him up in the air and shook him side to side.

I liked the story but disliked the wife. They tried to make her badass and made her unlikable.

Bayak through the whole thing, “let’s just ignore all this shite and frick,”

“And she’s all “our purpose on this planet is greater.”

She was kind of bitchy, esp towards the end.

Bayek might be my favorite character now in the series. Great voice acting really brought his character to life.

You cannot power through this game, the main quest out paces you and you have to go back and do side quests and I like it. The setting is so awesome, I have some great screens. Easily the best AC to date.

Watched a video from the dev team today about how certain area are historically and geographically accurate. So much so that the game will be sent in a form of "Discovery" mode to schools to view what and explore certain areas in the classroom.

It really is an awesome setting.

The Sphinx was MEH, but I have heard it's like that in RL. I really need to bite the bullet and go there in 2019, my trips are tentatively scheduled for 2018.

High water mark for AC games for me was black flag.


It's the true successor to Black Flag, imo. I liked Syndicate, but as far as graphics and open world play goes, it doesn't compare to BF or Origins.

It's very easy to get lost in side quests which allows you to level up past the main story line, which makes those missions less difficult.

Stealth is actually possible, and beneficial.

This is a top 3 game of the year for me and I’m just a level 18. The side missions are fun because they vary just enough to where it’s not the same ol thing. The combat system is great, enjoy using the “tools” as well. Can’t wait to kill all these murderous bastards!!

Hundreds of thousands if not more toursits each year, it's a place you do the tourist traps though. It forking dirt cheap to travel there too.

I can't stop taking screens in this game.

You just got a code from you cards and didn't link on Steam?

Was looking to see what badges you unlocked today but the game wasn't showing up in your profile.
