So I had been stuck in a bit of rut with gaming, and reading to be honest. I had finished Mass Effect Andromeda and with all the other games I had sitting there, I wasn’t feeling any of them and I felt swamped with having, what felt like, so many. This feeling comes up every so often and usually goes away on it’s own in a few days or a week.
So, it gets to Saturday night, I finish work and decided to treat myself to a very naughty takeaway, a cheeky cider and a film.
As you can see I went with Assassins Creed. (I enjoyed it a lot, good action!)
I had tried to play the second Assassins Creed game many years ago, with not a lot of success, I kept killing Ezio as I tried to race his brother right near the beginning so gave up after that. When I saw Syndicate had been released near the end of 2015 I was intrigued. It was based in the UK, in the capitol no less, which I am not far away from and have visited on a few occasions. It had Steampunk elements which I love! I’ve never done stealthy games, I’m one of those people who charges in, all guns and magic blazing, subtle isn’t my thing. Yet I kept looking at Syndicate….
I gave in just after Christmas, literally just after, Boxing Day lol, it had gone down a little in price by then. I played it and loved it! I got just over halfway through but gave up after getting stuck on a really annoying tail without getting too close or too far away bit >.<
After watching the film, as you can understand, I was in a very Assassin kinda mood, so I put the disc back in, installed, updated and decided to wander round for a little while in 1868 London. The muscle memory kicked back in after a quick glance at the controls and soon as sneaking way around the rooftops, like I did 18 months before! I even got past the bit I was stuck on before. (Annoying to see how close I was to doing it!)
So gaming is back on track! I’m not sure what I’m gonna play after I finish Assassins Creed Syndicate, but that’s a worry for another day. I’m also making moves to complete Fire Emblem Awakening on 3DS to then make a real proper go to complete Fire Emblem Fates: Birthright, Conquest and Revelation. Also Fire Emblem Echoes has just dropped.
I’m gonna be busy ^^
