Assassin’s Creed Valhalla

Posted in Just something to say with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on August 28, 2021 by getbent57

Have put about eleven hours into Assassin’s Creed Valhalla.  Am having a blast so far.  Like most open world games I play I like to check out all the side stuff first.  All so like to see how many collectable’s I can find.  This games does that much differently than past games in the series.  On the map there are little colour dots.  Some are bigger then others.  The bigger the more important.  They have have random like encounters called world events.  Found a few of those.  Some them can be really funny.  The game is huge with lots to look at.  It is all so more of an RPG than past games.  Which is fine with me.  Getting all kinds of gear and weapon upgrades is fun as well.

Assassin’s Creed Valhalla Hands On

Posted in Just something to say with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on August 15, 2021 by getbent57

Picked up a copy of Assassin’s Creed Valhalla today (August 15, 2021).  It was on sale and am a huge fan of the series.  Then this game came out in November (2020) I didn’t buy it then because Cyberpunk 2077 was going to be out soon after.  Ended up buying that.  In hindsight should have bought Valhalla and waited for Cyberpunk to be cheaper.  On a plus side Valhalla has had a lot of patch with bug fixes over the past six months or so.  Only played about 40 minutes so far. Am really like what I am seeing and doing.  Will be back with an update once I have more time in.

Am planning on getting a few things during the Boxing Day sales.  Well it more like Boxing Week sales.  Am looking at getting a new headphones to be used with my computer.  Right now I have a nice Sony set. Which I have had for many years.  One of the wires become loose so the audio cuts in and out.  Want another wired set.  Seen a set on the Walmart flyer.  So going to look up some reviews.  All looking at getting some more cheap games for my black log.  Top of my list is Assassin’s Creed Valhalla.

Posted in Just something to say, Videos with tags , , , , , , , , , , on October 7, 2020 by getbent57

Very much looking forward to playing Assassin’s Creed Valhalla.  Am a big fan of this series.  They put out a new story trailer.  Which you can see > here below.  At the end of the trailer the give a new releases date November 10, 2020.  Back in the summer they were saying the 17th.  They moved it up because that is when the new Xbox is out.  As much as I want to get the game.   Cyberpunk 2077 is about about a week later on 19th.  Thinking I will be getting that one first.  Since most Ubisoft games go an sale pretty quickly.

A few days a go (July 12, 2020) on the Ubisoft Forward video they showed off lots of gameplay for Assassin’s Creed Valhalla.  They showed off games I am interested in too, but they can wait for another post.  If you ever stopped by this blog you might now I am a huge Assassin’ Creed game fan.  Am very much looking forward to play this.  Even more show after watching the videos.  During the main show they has about a six minute over view video showing off what is new and what not.  You can see that > here or below.  The game looks like so much fun.  After the show was over the had another video of 30 minutes of gameplay.  You can see that one > here.  One of thing I have to talk about is you can get a cat that will travel with you in your long boat.  The down side about this game is it will be out November 17, 2020.   That is just a few day before Cyberpunk 2077 is set to be out.  I just might have to wait to buy this one.  Well unless Cyberpunk get pushed back again.

Assassins_Creed_ValhallaLast week Ubisoft announced a new AC game called, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla.  As you can guess from the title you play as a Viking.  They put out an awesome trailer.  While it is not real gameplay just know this will be an top notch game.  The past two games have been great.  Having two year between has made a big difference.  There is not much to go on yet.  They say it will be out Holiday 2020.  It will all so be on a lot of systems current gen, PC and as well as the new PlayStation and Xbox.  Know I am going to buy a copy when it does come out.  Just can’t wait to see what the real gameplay looks like.  You can see the trailer > here or below.

Assassin’s Creed: The Complete Visual History

Posted in Just something to say with tags , , , , , on August 6, 2018 by getbent57

Assassins_Creed_The_Complete_Visual_HistoryA local store was have a side walk sale.  They do this a few times a year.  Wanted to go to them but for some reason or another miss out.  Half the store sell music and the other half pop culture stuff.  There was a lot to choose from and ended up buying three things.  One of which is the book, Assassin’s Creed: The Complete Visual History.  As you may know Assassin’s Creed is one of my favourite video game series.  When I seen it on the table could not pass it up.  They were asking $10.00.  Which is a hell of a good deal.  The original list price is $60.00US.

Assassin’s Creed Movie Review

Posted in Review's with tags , , , , , on March 24, 2018 by getbent57

Am a bit late getting around to reviewing Assassin’s Creed movie.  If you have every stopped by this blog you will know I am a huge fan of the Assassin’s Creed games.  When I first heard about his movie back in 2016 and see the trailer.  It looked interesting but wasn’t too sure how good it would be.  Then when it was out.  Heard lots of bad things about it.  So chucked it up to being another bad video game movie.

The movie has been on Netflix for a while now and has been on my list to watch.  So the other night gave it a watch.  Well I enjoyed this movie.  It was really well put together.  They did an awesome job of working in story elements and stuff from the games with out being on the nose with it.  Sure the over all story was simplified.  It is an action movie after all.  Speaking of action.  Those scenes were awesome.  The ending as a bit predictable.  Leaving it out for a sequel.  Would like to see another one.  But I don’t think it did do well at the box office.  If you have Netflix it well worth your time.

Assassin’s Creed Origins

Posted in Just something to say with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on February 24, 2018 by getbent57

Have owned a copy of Assassin’s Creed Origins since it came out near the end of October (2017).  So far I have played for 76 hours.  Have enjoyed every minute of it.  Still know were from finishing it.  There is so much to look at and side stuff to do.  There are still lots of the map I have not been to yet.  I like to do all the stuff in each section of the map before moving on.  Have reached the level cap, which is forty.  All so all the stuff you can upgrade, upgraded.  My goal is to finish everything before Far Cry 5 is out.  This is the best Assassin’s Creed game in years.  Like I really like the last one, Syndicate, and recommend that one as well.  If you have to pick one go with Origins.
