Anime Review: Attack On Titan, Season 3

Details: Part 2 of season 3 is currently ongoing. I’ve watch the first part of season 3 and I’m nine episode in to the second part. More information can be found at https://shingeki.tv/season3/ and https://myanimelist.net/anime/38524/Shingeki_no_Kyojin_Season_3_Part_2

Score: 7.5/10

Attack on Titan is simply some of the best entertainment on television. The story is bonkers. The animation is great (though there is a noticeable drop in quality in Season 3). If you like anime and have a strong stomach, you need to be watching this show.

Video Game Review: Assassin’s Creed III Remastered

Details: Played on the PC for about 26 hours. This is just a review of the base game, not of the King Washington DLC or of Liberation. Got the game along with Assassin’s Creed Odyssey Gold Edition. Official site is https://www.ubisoft.com/en-us/game/assassins-creed-3-remastered/

Score: 7/10

Back when Assassin’s Creed III was released, I remember reading a lot of critique about the game. The general online consensus was that it changed too much and that the story was weird as were the performances. Personally, I vaguely remember playing the game, but from what I do remember, I enjoyed it. Fast forward to today and I am once again reminded why I enjoyed the game so much. In a word, it’s the story.

Video Game Review: Assassin’s Creed Odyssey: The Fate of Atlantis, Episode 2: Torment of Hades

Details: Played through it in about eight hours. Official site is https://assassinscreed.ubisoft.com/game/en-us/home

Score: 7.4/10

Torment of Hades is the second episode of The Fate of Atlantis DLC and takes your protagonist to the Greek Underworld. Though the world is slightly smaller than the world in Episode 1, the writing is a little better and contributes to an overall better experience.

Video Game Review: Assassin’s Creed Origins: The Curse of the Pharaohs

Details: Played through the game in about twelve hours. More information can be found at https://www.ubisoft.com/en-gb/game/assassins-creed-origins/ and https://store.ubi.com/ie/assassin-s-creed–origins—the-curse-of-the-pharaohs/5a9d712c88a7e30993e580c1.html

Score: 7.6/10

Curse of the Pharaohs is the last piece of downloadable content (or DLC) for Assassin’s Creed: Origins. There’s so much more to this downloadable content that it borders on being called an expansion rather than DLC. Curse of the Pharaohs introduces a few new beautiful areas to explore and a few new bosses to fight as well. The story goes more into the history of Egypt, but not of its protagonist, Bayek, unfortunately.

Video Game Review: Assassin’s Creed Origins: The Hidden Ones

Details: Spent about six hours playing through this. More information can be found at https://www.ubisoft.com/en-gb/game/assassins-creed-origins/ and https://store.ubi.com/ie/assassin-s-creed-origins—the-hidden-ones/5a5e11ee88a7e3b6351233e3.html

Score: 6.8/10

The Hidden Ones is a piece of downloadable content (or DLC for short) that adds a new area to Assassin’s Creed: Origins. It’s relatively short and doesn’t add anything to the gameplay. Otherwise, it’s fine.
