We were excited to bring in new episodes, but a job change and really unfortunate schedule conflicts have dashed those hopes. There are a few episodes that were left on the shelf and those should be up soon.
I’m not sure about whether I’ll continue the show solo or change up the format a bit, but I’m not just chucking it in the bin.
Ever since Assassin’s Creed, I started to see any other story game like being in the Animus and reviewing their memories. Think about it, whenever is Cole and Delsin from InFamous, Issac Clarke from Dead Space, or Subject Delta and Booker from Bioshock, you see everything that they went through! Also if you failed a mission or you died, you fail and restart at whatever checkpoint you left off, you desynchronized. Subject Delta did not die here, desynchronizing… Completing objectives, surviving, and upgrading is synchronizing closer to them as one progresses. Having update stats, weapon stats, map stats, just like how the Animus has. We are all just going through their memories, like we are to the Assassins, both past and present. At least that is how I see it anyway!
I actually really liked how two separate buttons distinguished regular running from free-running. In these newer games I literally parkour all over everything when I’m just trying to get down the street.
I don’t understand all the hate on AC3. I mean, I still prefer AC2, but AC3 has it all: understanding the Templars, what the ‘ones who came before’ really want, an explanation on why the Creed grew smaller, and does it all with a historical accurate story with lots of hints to deeper stuff around the independence. And the parkour is spot on.
