Watchdogs 2 | Done

Alright!  This is it! I think I've caught up with my game reviews from games that I've played over the past few years! 😂. This one I finished in November 2021.For this one, I returned to Ubisoft's Watchdog franchise. I loved the first one, and I was looking forward to this second one.  Now that the next Watchdogs is out (well, it's been out for a while), I thought I should catch up with

Far Cry: New Dawn | Done

Despite my annoyance at the ending of Farcry 5, I decided to take a little time off the game and then jump into New Dawn.  I finished July 2021, after I successfully defended my dissertation.I started off thinking that this was m'eh game, probably disappointed from the ending of FC5, but in the end, it was pretty solid. Started at the end of March, put it away until July when I binged it.The post-apocalyptic

Farcry 5 | Done

A little more catch-up on games finished in the past year. This one I finished March 2021I picked this game up right after I finished Farcry 4. After being conditioned for the past two farcry games to seek out towers so that I can clear up the map (not to mention more than a handful of assassin's creed games), I had a big guttural laugh when I went to the first tower, climbed it, cleared it, and then

Far Cry 4 | Done

 Next up on my binge of Far Cry games, Far Cry 4, which I completed December 2020 (took long enough to write this, eh?😜)Continuing on with the tradition of "WTF?!?!", Far Cry sets you on a journey to the fictional nation of Kyrat. Kyrat is located in the Himalayas, and it seems to border Bihar, India since it is stated at the beginning of the game that the nearest embassy being in Patna.

Far Cry 3 Blood Dragon | Done

 Right after I finished Fac Cry 3, I kicked off the spin off game, Far Cry 3, Blood Dragon, which I finished October 2020The game is rather short, but it is a ton of fun. The game basically takes the basic structure of Far Cry 3, albeit in a smaller sandbox, and transports you to the "future" by playing a Kyle Reese type of character in a very 80s, terminator-style setting.  The language

Far Cry 6 trailer

Another Ubisoft trailer, this time for Far Cry 6. I finished Far Cry 2 a while back, and went back to the original before I retired my Xbox 360.  I guess  I need to catch up with the games (probably after my dissertation is done).  Giancarlo Esposito makes for a good bad guy (at least in this trailer).

Watchdogs Legion trailer

Seems like it's video game announcement time, and even though I have quite a few unplayed games left, I am always looking toward what's coming up next!  Heck, I haven't even started Watchdogs 2 yet!    Anyway - Watchdogs Legion is coming out sometime this year and the cinematic trailer looks pretty good!  There's something very  "V for Vendetta" about this game.

Assassin's creed Odyssey trailer

Just by luck yesterday YouTube suggested the Ubisoft livestream from E3 (oh internet overlords, you know me so well!), and I tuned in just as the trailer for Assassin's Creed Odyssey came on screen.  I love the trailer, I love that I am able to pick a character, I love that it's going to be set in Greece during the  peloponnesian war, I think I like the Bioware RPGness of the game. There

Zombi | Done!

The most recent game I finished (right before I headed off to the annual MTA conference the past two days) was Zombi on the XBOX One.  This was originally a WiiU game (a horror game on the Nintendo???) but it made its way to the xbox a few years later.  It's an ubisoft production and it's something I got for "free" by subscribing to Gold (since my membership is expiring soon I thought I

Assassin's Creed Unity | Done!

It's been a while since I last played an Assassin's Creed game on a console, owing mostly to the fact that I didn't have a current generation console to play the 'newest' games on.  I think the wait was quite worth it, for a few reasons.Assassin's Creed Unity is the next game in the series after Assassin's Creed Rogue.  Your main character is Arno Dorian. If you played Rogue you know that
