Video Game Review: Assassin’s Creed III: Liberation Remastered

Details: Played about five hours before giving up. Came bundled together with Assassin’s Creed III and Assassin’s Creed Odyssey Season Pass. Official site is https://www.ubisoft.com/en-us/game/assassins-creed-3-remastered/

Score: 5.6/10

I really wanted to like this game. I forced myself to play through it until I just couldn’t take it anymore. Assassin’s Creed Liberation Remastered may have better textures, but it pains the eyes and mind with it’s lackluster world and boring gameplay.

Video Game Review: Assassin’s Creed III: The Tyranny of King Washington Remastered

Details: It was bundled together with Assassin’s Creed III Remastered. This DLC is divided in to three parts. The first part took about two hours, the second part took about one hour, and the third part took about two hours. Official site is https://www.ubisoft.com/en-us/game/assassins-creed-3-remastered/

Score: 6/10

The Tyranny of King Washington is the only story related downloadable content (or DLC) released for Assassin’s Creed III. It’s okay. It’s a story with no real consequence on history or Assassin’s Creed canon.

Anime Review: One Piece, Episode 892

Details: More information can be found at http://onepieceofficial.com/ and https://www.crunchyroll.com/one-piece and https://myanimelist.net/anime/21/One_Piece

Score: 7.5/10

For the last couple of years, the animation quality for most episodes have been tolerable to downright crap. Some fight scenes were animated well, but most episode were paced and animated in a lackluster way, never keeping my interest long enough to watch a full episode. With episode 892, that all changes. The art style, animation quality, and production values are so damn good that if they keep this up, I’m probably going to ravenously watch through this entire season.

Manga Review: Hell’s Paradise: Jigokuraku

Details: You can read it at https://www.viz.com/shonenjump/chapters/hells-paradise-jigokuraku

Jigokuraku is an action oriented manga with some nudity and gore-y action. There isn’t too much of a story or high emotional notes. This is a battle royale oriented comic where the main attraction is simply trying to figure out who is the strongest.

The story takes place in feudal Japan. A group of the most dangerous criminals, each paired with one of the most dangerous samurai of the time are tasked to go to an island in search of the elixir of eternal life. Many have traveled there before but none have returned whole. Now these criminals and samurai will begin what is likely a suicide mission into a mystical island rife with dangers.

The art is great, although there are times where so much is going on it’s hard to comprehend the art. The art is generally detailed and fluid. Lots of action packed panels.

The general flow of the story draws on some aspects of mythology from Asia. There are some familiar elements that reminded me of One Piece and Dragon Ball like the use of energy or ki.

Overall, this was a fun read. Don’t expect too much and just enjoy the action.

Score: 7/10
