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
Splinter Cell: Part II

Part II of the Splinter Cell fan film was released this past week with 20 minutes more of the prequel story. It was an interesting video to watch (and now I'm waiting for Part III which I assume wraps up the story), but some of the dialogue seemed to be a little odd for the character of Sam Fisher and it sounded a little more like a generic action hero. Perhaps we can write it off as this being a
Far Cry 2 | Done!

Last semester I began to play Far Cry 2 on my xbox 360 on my free time (free time, LOL - I suppose that's why it took this long to complete the game :p) I got the game as part of a far cry pack a few winters ago, and with the pile of 360 games becoming smaller and smaller, this series was next on my list. Far Cry (the original) wasn't available at the time, and it seems that the stories
Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory | Done

[Spoilers] My quest to complete all current Splinter Cell games is complete! Last week (right before the semester start) I got to finish the last of the original Splinter Cell trilogy on the xbox. The game was originally released for the original xbox, but though the magic of backward compatibility I played this on my 360. This game played fairly well in compatibility mode. The compatibility
Assassin's Creed Origins
Monday, Jun 12 2017 07:44 | Assassins Creed, Entertainment, trailer, ubisoft, video games, VideoGames, XBOX, youtube
Yesterday, at this year's E3 conference, we got new of the next Assassin's Creed. I guess the rumors (or wild wishes?) from some fans came true: Old Egypt (looks like Roman times) is now the setting of the next game which will chronicle the beginning of the brotherhood. Can't wait! Wonder if it will have an Ancient Aliens vibe ;-)
Off to Mile End Summer!
Perfectly planned! or is this called serendipity to be here while this is happening without planning it? ;-)
Assassin's Creed Chronicles: India | Done
Wednesday, Nov 16 2016 09:34 | Assassins Creed, Entertainment, ubisoft, video games, VideoGames, Windows
I had started this game in Madrid, once I had finished with the first in the series (China), but being back home also means a lot less time for games ;-) In any case, picking away at it a little at a time means that progress was made in completing it (sounds like a parallel for dissertation writing, eh? ;-) ).The game follows Arbaaz Mir in Amritsar (India) in 1841, in the midst of a war between the
Assassin's Creed Chronicles: China | Done

A while back, during a Humble Store sale, I got Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: China (as well as India and Russia). I had downloaded the China version of the Chronicles when I first got the game, but it had quickly gone into disuse since I was focusing mostly on Star Trek Online and on Bully on the xbox. While I was on vacation, with little access to good wifi, I ended up going to the only game
