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.

Just before Assassin’s Creed Origins was released Ubisoft announced that there will be an educational mode at some point in the future.  This mode will let you explore the world to learn more about Egypt.  Without any of the combat, missions and the like getting in way.  There will be even some narrated guided tours in some spots.  Talking about this because it has a title and a released date.  It is called Discovery Tour and will be out as a free update to all players on February 20, 2018.  You can read more about it > here.

Assassins_Creed_Rogue_RemasteredBack in 2014 Assassin’s Creed Rogue was released for the previous generation (PS3 and Xbox 360).  All on that day they released Assassin’s Creed: Unity for current gen.  At this point had moved onto the PlayStation 4.  So never got a change to play Rouge.  If you are like me and all ways wanted to.  We are in luck because Ubisoft is releasing a remastered version on March 20, 2018 or PS4/ Pro and Xbox One/ X.  Not sure if it will be a full price game.  will keep my eye on it.  You can see the trailer > here or below.

Posted in Just something to say with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on November 20, 2017 by getbent57

Has been a few days since I have turned on my PlayStation 4 to play some Assassin’s Creed Origins.  Going to wait a little longer to play because there is a kind of big patch out.  This new patch is 1.0.5..  Which is about 1.3GB on the PS4.  The patch is/or will be out for Xbox One PC as well.  Like all patches it improves performance, stability and adds kinds of fixes.  One cool thing it does is, be able to pick beard and hair types.  There is a lot more of course.  You can read the official list > here.  Am really liking this game.  Have put about twenty hours in and haven’t been bored once.

Assassin’s Creed Origins Update

Posted in Just something to say with tags , , , , , , , , , on November 14, 2017 by getbent57

Once again talking about Assassin’s Creed Origins.  Have put some more time in and have enjoyed every minute.  Really like the RPG elements.  It has just the right balance.  All the loot has some short of use.  Either for crafting or selling.  Have gotten better at the combat.  It is much different than past games.  You have to put more work into but it’s more satisfying.  All so really like the main character. There are some pretty light hearted moments that will make you smile.  My goal is to complete this %100 like I did the last game.  Thinking it will take me months to do.  But well worth it.

Assassin’s Creed Origins Hands On

Posted in Just something to say with tags , , , , , , , , , on November 4, 2017 by getbent57

Have put about seven hours into Assassin’s Creed Origins.  Well more than that by the time this is posted.  Since I type this days in advance.  So far really enjoying the game.  It has the Assassin’s Creed feel to it.  While adding new and switching things up.  The combat is the biggest change.  There is a light and heavy attack, a shield, bow and a dodge.  There are many types a weapons to try out.  The games is pretty much an action RPG.  So the weapons have levels as well.  They all so can be upgraded, sold or dismantled for parts.  Like all games now.  There is a crafting system in place.  You can hunt, fight or loot the items for crafting.

The climbing is the best one yet.  While I didn’t run once (so far) in to Assassin’s Creed rage.  That is when you are trying to climb up or down but the character goes the wrong way or gets stuck.  This is not too much of a big deal since the game is huge open world action PRG.  There are bound to be some small problems.
