OK, I just couldn’t help myself, I had to buy Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey– and I don’t regret it at all! The game is more like Origins and is certainly a departure from the more traditional Assassin’s Creed experience. Still, I love exploring ancient Greece and yes, being able to Spartan kick enemies off of cliffs. Have any of you guys played Odyssey?
What have I been reading?
Over the past two weeks since my last update post, I’ve been busy reading one of my favourite zombie themed trilogies, the Newsflesh trilogy by Mira Grant. I’m surprised that, according to Goodreads, the last time I read this trilogy was 2013/2014,., certainly doesn’t feel that long ago! I can safely say that the trilogy lives up to my memories of it. For anyone who hasn’t read this trilogy, it set in America after a zombie apocalypse. The zombies still remain but humanity has learnt to survive alongside the dead. In this post-apocalyptic world, a group of bloggers end up getting embroiled in a politic conspiracy that could affect the entire world. If you’re a fan of the zombie genre, this is a must read series!
I have about 200 pages of Blackout left to go and then I’ll be more onto a more ghostly novel.
What have I been playing?
As I mentioned at the start, I’ve been playing a lot of Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey, you expect to see a few more screenshots in future update posts! This Assassin’s Creed has a more RPG vibe, with skill trees, crafting, dialogue choice and lots of quests. I’ve played over ten hours and I’m still only in the second chapter. However, the extra content in’t the usual Ubisoft filler, some quests give you extra engravings, which can be added to your weapons and armour for additional bonuses. Plus, you’ll need the extra drachmae to upgrade your ship and equipment. It feels like everything in this game is to aid you on your odyssey and so far, my journey has been pretty epic!
On my PS4, I’ve continued my adventure as the web slinger, another game that just keeps get better the more that I play it. More side activities open up regularly, like playing a cat and mouse chase with Black Cat. The game is definitely living up to the hype and is turning out to be a worthy purchase for my PS4.
I’ve also been playing Graveyard Keeper, while it hasn’t stolen my heart, like Stardew Valley did, but it is still a solid sandbox RPG, that I can see myself spending a lot of time playing… so long as I don’t get distracted my a certain Greek assassin!
What’s going on with the blog?
I managed to post a few things last week, but in case you missed them, here they are:
This week I’m looking to do another Judging Book By Their Covers post, this time for September. I’m also going to give a First Impressions post of Graveyard Keeper.
And that was my week (or two)! What have you guys been up to? Let me know in the comments in the comments and I’ll talk to you soon!
