Both Prey and AC Origins were amazing games
It's bascially a sphere that you were meant to skip around on the edge of, it was finicky but felt good once you got the hang of it.
Bayek is far and away the best protagonist that series has ever produced. (Though Kassandra is great and, obviously, Ezio too) And yeah, I'd recommend a break before Odyssey since it's similar in a lot of ways. You'll probably burn out hard playing those two back-to-back.after playing through wildlands and p much feeling like this hobby is wasting my time/life, I started to play ass creed origins and am now feeling the opposite. this is a good game heightened by its visuals, (some of the) writing, and a real sense of place. the hot egyptian sun absolutely beating down in the middle of a desert with proper HDR is some next-level stuff.
the ubi-checklists are even masked fairly well -- for each completely nothing sidequest there is one with a little bit more interest & passion, and I love listening to Bayek and hearing his take on things around him
also my god I wish they would drop this modern day nonsense. like they have recreated this incredible landscape of history, people, culture and somehow that can't be enough for a video game, they gotta heighten it with some stupid bs future tech
kinda interested in odyssey but also feel like i'm gonna be wayyy exhausted of this format by the time I finish this game. apparently i'm only a third of the way through this story at 20 hours in.
Much harder imo if the work is literally about the author's sins/crimes/behavior. I'm not gonna be stoked to watch Manhattan bc Woody Allen literally dates a high schooler in that.Though not related at all to the intent theory, does anyone else have a hard time enjoying media after knowing the author is fucked.
Like for example I read the enderverse saga and it's one of my favourite series. but now knowing Card's views on Homosexuality I can't ever bring myself to even think of reading them again.
edit: Louis CK is another one he was my favourite comedian before all his shit came out and now I have no interest in anything he does or had done in the past.
Because I watched Austin play Total Warhammer 1 on GBI over the week-end I almost bought the sequel but then I noticed that the sale was over and it was back at full price so whatever
I wonder what a Reggie being free to talk to journalists (like Phil is ) would be like.
By third phase do you mean including Genichiro?
The Genichiro phase and first phase Isshin you can do without any damage if you really concentrate.
That third phase, it's a difference balance, your instinct is to create distance but the reality is you need to be be closing the gap, parrying and doing a couple of hits here and there. I used firecrackers to knock him out of that mortal blade spin he does.
However, his last phase is almost the same as the third, so if you can get to the last phase you can get him for sure, I hope you practiced your lightning reversals!
Compared to DoH this bossfight was a dream, still took me a lot of tries but it's a fun boss IMO.
