Video Game Review: Assassin’s Creed Odyssey: Judgment of Atlantis

Details: Spent about seven hours playing through it. More information can be found at https://assassinscreed.ubisoft.com/game/en-us/home

Score: 6/10

For the most part, this DLC is lackluster. However, I cannot deny that it’s pretty to look at. The art department knocked it out of the park with Judgment of Atlantis. It’s the writers and scenario makers that sucked ass with this one.

Anime Review: Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure: Golden Wind

Details: I’m up to episode thirty-seven. More information can be found at https://www.crunchyroll.com/jojos-bizarre-adventure and https://myanimelist.net/anime/37991/JoJo_no_Kimyou_na_Bouken__Ougon_no_Kaze

Score: 8/10

There really is nothing else like Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure. One of the oldest running franchises, Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure has inspired, been referenced to and been copied by countless other anime and manga to some extent. It’s one of the most often meme’d things on the internet. Golden Wind continues this tradition by being one of the craziest, most nonsense shows I’ve ever watched. I love this show.

Video Game Review: Detective Pikachu

Details: No idea how long this game took, but there are nine chapters and each chapter probably took a little over an hour to get through. More information can be found at https://detectivepikachu.pokemon.com/en-us/

Score: 5.9/10

Detective Pikachu is a standard adventure game. My biggest complaints with this game are not with the game itself, but with the adventure game genre, which I find mostly boring. Also, an adventure game relies heavily on its story and while Detective Pikachu tells its own story separate from the movie, there’s enough connection to the movie’s story that it took something away from the game.

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.
