on an Odyssey

So I finally finished Assassin’s Creed: Origins and my brother told me to start on Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey and I’m having the time of my life.

I was scared because I was reading early reviews saying that it was unnecessarily tougher and many people were saying that it lost the essence of what made the Assassin’s Creed games so enjoyable but after the first few hours of getting used to the game, I started to enjoy myself a lot.

I’ve been playing Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey and it’s like a Spartan-kick-in-the-gut levels of enjoyment for me

I’m getting a little overwhelmed by the massive open world design and all the possibilities during the game. I’ve gone to three locations already but decided to start all over again because I began to realize I was playing it wrong.

I’m now taking my time and making better choices now.

Origins was a huge open world game too, but it had a more straightforward storyline but Odyssey is so big and there are so many options and it’s my first time so I’m getting nervous about any step I make because it will have far reaching effects later on.

I’m actually even enjoying the side quests and fighting pirates more than completing the main storyline because I want to take my time with it. And after seeing the entire map, I feel like I’m going to be playing this game far into next year (since I only really play once a week during Sundays).

I don’t care if Kassandra is the supposed cannon character, I am playing Alexios because I find it so damned hot and he gets to have male lovers as well as female — bisexuality for the win!

It’s what I was doing most of the long weekend last week and will probably spend most of the Christmas break just playing this non-stop. I can’t imagine myself writing this long Christmas break because how would I be able to stop myself from not playing.

I won’t be touching any other game but this but once I’m done, I think I’d be more open to playing other games now. I’m not so scared anymore. Assassin’s Creed broke my Playstation cherry and I’m happy about it.

Now I’m thinking about getting a TV and a Playstation 4 for the future.

Good bye productivity!
