There really is a lot of content in AC Odyssey. The map is still strewn with question marks, areas remain unexplored and side quests that I know of so far still need solving. So there is a lot more left besides the main two quests.

Finished the two main quests lines in Assassins Creed Odyssey. 192 hours. Damn that is one fun game! Yes it can get a bit repetitious sometimes, but there are always new places to go and new tertiary quest lines to follow.

For me, it was the best RPG type game since The Witcher 3. CDPR are going to have to up their game for Cyberpunk, because Ubisoft took very good notes on how to make a perfect game. They got this one to about 92%!

I’ll pick out some additional screenshots in the next couple days.
assassin's creed & deus ex crossover incoming ?

Taking a break from Oxygen Not Included to try Shadow Tactics: Blades of the Shogun. Shadow Tactics isn't as good as I expected it to be mainly because the controls suck. They're atrocious using keyboard and mouse. Xbox 360 controller is better but still not very good. Take, for example, camera control. You'd think left stick would pan and holding down while moving left stick would pitch and rotate but, no, left stick click does a whole lot of nothing. If you want to pitch and rotate, you have to hold the right trigger and then move the joystick. Why? When controls suck, everything that should be simple ends up being needlessly complicated. I wish I could refund the game but it's too late for that. :(

Content galore, just like TW3. There's a new update too that will be released soon on 11/15 according to Ubisoft. It's already 11/16 (November 16) here in Tokyo but I still don't see Steam downloading anything. Maybe a few hours later?

One of the new features from the update is Visual Customization System.

Honestly, think of Origin as a test case and practice for Odyssey. Odyssey improves on it in every way.

I really think the only weakness is the smaller side quests, of which there are many, can get repetitious. There are a lot of bigger side quest lines that are every bit as fun and interesting as the main quests.

The smaller side quests usually are mercenary jobs you pick up on a public board, like TW3. I rationalize it this way: you are a mercenary. As a mercenary, you DO need to make money along the way to saving your family’s heritage.

The acting for most main or important characters is very good. One exception is Deimos. It is so annoying and over done that I am very glad I played as Kassandra, his sister. Combat is good, although dodging is more effective than blocking.

Greece is fabulous, beautiful, and huge. All the main islands are there. All the Greek lands are just smaller versions of the real thing. It doesn’t hurt gameplay at all though. It’s plenty big. Life exists everywhere, people going about their lives, conversations happening. It feels alive.

For me, it was some of the best money I have spent on a game.

didn't get Odyssey since Origins didn't strike me fancy. Still, its a better game than the other AC series. Meanwhile I'm continuing the main story quest for Destiny 2. Time to hunt the Red Legion down; one by one.

Started Odyssey. The game is gorgeous,but I'm disappointed to see it doesn't really compare to witcher 3 in terms of character customization. Yeah,you have a pretty basic skill tree and armor stats, but if you consider the depth of witcher's skill tree+potions and decoctions+armor perks+mutations+runes it doesn't compare at all. I had so many various builds in witcher 3 it was ridiculous,this looks very rudimentary. I don't think it will surprise me in that respect the further i progress,I think it's just story driven with just very basic character custimization for a modern rpg.

I also played some Destiny 2 I got for free, back when a trial version was made free I enjooyed it a lot, so I'm obviously very happy to be able to play the entirety of the base game for free.

Which isn't surprising; The Witcher comes from RPG-land, Assassins Creed comes from action-adventure-land. I don't even think Odessey is marketed as an RPG but rather an action-adventure with RPG elements.

Inaccurate

I never played the Witcher games. I lived the Witcher games. - with this said don't remember any customization in the Witcher 3 game whatsoever. Aside from the put another peace of armor on, maybe...?

If another peace of armor is considered customization of the character, with the the legit version of the game by now patch 1.07 is out, and has been for the past 2 days 6 minutes and 14 seconds. What Ubisoft has done with this patch is unique and has never been seen in the year of our Lord 2018.

Every game has the same flaw, as did the Witcher, if it looks amazing you need to put it aside cuz you found an uglier one with better stats. How many of us fight bad guys and take on bosses in game with a sht armor just cuz we love the immersion and we need our character to look amazing!? I know i did it many times in the Witcher 3, until I installed a mod that allowed the armor to level up along side my character.

Ubisoft did it! With patch 1.07 you not only never need to carry the armor in Assassins' Creed Odyssey with you, as long as it was unlocked you can keep whatever armor set you got best for stats, but completely change it's look with something you had in the past.

Other games have came close to this (Guild Wars 2) but Ubisoft has set the standard, and from now on nothing will never bee the same!
Each time you will play a game, get an amazing helmet just to have it changed 5 hours of gameplay latter when you found a lvl 10+ better stats one that looks like sht, you will forever remember Assassins' Freaking Creed Odyssey

Destiny has an upgrade system where low level gear can be upgraded to the level of the higher one while keeping the looks of the original one. The other one gets destroyed in the process. It's like infusing the weak part with the power of the stronger one. Each gear slot can only be upgraded with items that belong to that slot. For example, chest armor can only be upgraded with chest armor. And the same goes with other 4 armor slots and 3 weapon slots.

New Warframe patch is up, I missed publish day, I might jump back on it next week to get the event items. The kubrow pet from last patch was utter shite though, so was the prove vandal weapon. Only good thing that came out of that patch was the event mods
I would love to get back into that game. I haven't really touched it since they did the overhaul on the skill system (can't remember what it's called) I don't have anyone else to play with either so if i did return it then it would be just me solo'n planets with my rhino

Then you completely missed dozens if not hundreds of hours put into choosing the right combination of Geralt's skills,mutations and armor,which for me was as good as the story. If for you that was just putting another piece of armor on and upping your attack power then sorry,but you missed so much. The combat was simple,but building your battle skills was so intricate and fun if you experimented and not just stuck to the obvious path.The armor in witcher 3 worked entirely on percentages not levels and raw numbers. You could have a piece of lvl 50 armor that completely outdid lvl 80 one if paired with the right skill build. The whole fun with finding a nice,shiny piece of armor that was pretty but also shit for fighting was putting hours of thinking,changing,trials and errors, to make your build compensate for it and then finally getting it to work for you.Installing a mod was the easy path,but like I said,takes a lot of fun from my experience.

The skill customization in Odyssey makes a lot of difference. Master a number of those to level 3 and you’ll see how much of an impact they have on your skills and what you can do. It is significant, and more of an impact than many of Geralt’s Skill improvements.

@Frick is right, it’s an action adventure with a lot of RPG elements, but the RPG elements are well done. I would argue that The Witcher games are RPG-lite, and almost down to the action adventure with a lot of RPG elements that Odyssey is.

What skills you choose to specialize in, or have active for use in combat at any one time DO make a difference. What armor and weapons you choose, either as sets or as mismatched parts of sets rounds out various advantages and disadvantages. They can allow you to be a full specialist in one skill or type of skills with a complete set, if you find it all, or you can be a jack of many trades by mixing (altho with less impact on those attack or defense stats). It’s all very well done.

got rid of the first mercenary in AC:Odyssey. He kept killing me in a sword fight cause he was lvl 5 but I got him to chase me on a high roof and used bull rush to push him to fall to his death :D I also noticed how you can ignite your arrows with fire,sweet.
Yep. Firing through flames at someone is greatI even better if you shoot an oil jug nearby too. :D

I just downloaded Wolfenstein II: The new colossus, really enjoyable game imo, not very demanding to run. I quite like the gun mechanics, the ability to dual wield different weapons is really cool. I needed something other than PUBG! Pretty much the only game I play :laugh:
A mate keeps telling me to get Fallout 76, but I really don't want to pay money for such a lazy release. Movement is tied to fps still, so they implement a 60fps lock. :shadedshu: I thought they were going to start again, not just build on the broken mess of Fallout 4. Mate doesn't see the problem since he's on a low end system and 60hz monitor :(

Too repetitive/brainless. I am not a fan and I think I got it free. I think I'd rather play Witcher EE again (for the third or fourth time) than replay Grim Dawn.


I finally was doing good in Oxygen Not Included...until I ran water through my refinery and dumped it back in to the water pool where it was taken to the plants and now the plants are too hot to grow so starvation for everyone! My oldest autosave is after the refinery damage. My only save before that was literally 90 cycles ago (literally just started the map). I don't know if I can salvage this.

Oohh well this depends entirely on what you're after. Comparing it to The Witcher is extremely unfair. You might as well compare Diablo with Planescape: Torment.

Essentially it's a refined Titan Quest. It shares an almost embarassing amount of mechanics with that game, but everything is better, sharper, cleaner (and with crafting Lite!). I'd say go for it. I played it for like 60 hours or so the first weeks after purchase (this summer); I haven't been hooked on a game so much for ages. It is repetitive in the same way Diablo is repetitive. You do the same things over and over (and over and over and over and over) and if you don't like the mechanics you'll hate it, but if you like them you'll be in ARPG heaven.

BTW, calling @Vayra86.

I pondered my Oxygen Not Included situation and determined it's FUBAR. I need to start a new world (I've lost count how many times) and try to remember to create a custom save every 10 cycles or so to prevent autosave overwrite.

Already have 70 hours in the game and I still feel like I'm just scratching the surface. I can't remember a game quite like this that, when you think you have it all figured out, it kicks you in the gonads and laughs in your face. I don't feel defeated though, I feel challenged.


Also, I'm warming up to Shadow Tactics. I think my poor first impression of it was because I was (and still am) playing on Hardcore. If you can take your time to figure out what works and doesn't work, it's fun. I'm not sure how far into the game I am at this point but I'm looking forward to replaying it without hardcore mode enabled. Every mission has 9 special objectives to do that it tracks so it certainly does have replay value. The one thing that kind of saddens me that I didn't expect is that, of the five playable characters, which you get to use on each mission is pre-determined. For some reason, I was under the impression that you could choose who you have with you at the beginning of each mission. That's not the case because all characters are determined by the story.


I was given "Demetrios - The BIG Cynical Adventure" so I'll have to try that too...
