To be clear, this did not actually happen. I don’t let my kids watch me play games with graphic violence yet.
My four-year-old did wander in and witness an assassination… but he’s still gullible enough that I was able to convince him Dad was playing a game where the goal was to tag people with red paint and they’re “out”. Asleep. In the bushes I dump them in.
And I did recently pick up Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey. I pretty much signed off of the AC franchise after Black Flag; I was just getting too fatigued with the whole formula. Though I heard good things about Origins and Odyssey, I was content to let them pass me by.
Still, a recent sale had the “All-In” version at $20, and I was feeling the itch for a buttload of tasks to tick off a list, so I grabbed it. And boy, it is a lot of game. It just keeps on going with stuff. But, generally, it’s pretty fun stuff. Honestly it feels only marginally related to the Assassin’s Creed franchise I remember ditching, and I think it’s a better game for it. Not being burdened down by as much of the Abstergo stuff really lets you just get lost in Ancient Greece. And there’s a lot of legit educational/historical tidbits scattered in that I don’t remember from earlier AC games.
Also Kassandra is a badass and I love her.
