Assassin’s Creed Odyssey
If for some reason I can't play any of my stable of current games — be it World of Warcraft or Diablo 4 or Starfield or Cyberpunk 2077: Phantom Liberty or Baldur's Gate 3 -- I always have something to fall back on.
Today I did something I've literally never even thought about doing — I skipped the campaign in Diablo 4 on a Seasonal character so I could just jump them straight into Season 1.
Whenever a transmog system is introduced into one of the many games I play, I immediately look at it and debate whether or not it would be a good fit for World of Warcraft, the game that taught me how much I love transmog.
I have pretty weird tastes in video games, I suspect.
Honestly, one of the reasons I'm still playing Diablo 3 all these years later (it came out in 2012) is because it still has this perfect gameplay loop that sparks a mellow, relaxed feeling for me.
It has been a really terrifying, hellish month and it's only the third day of it as I write this, and so, as a coping mechanism I've been playing a lot of Fallout 4. Yes, that's right, I deal with stress by playing a game where humanity blew up the world.
Sometimes our games -- the ones we play, that become part of our lives -- can actually get under our skin.
This is something I don't think I've ever even heard of a game doing -- Ubisoft Quebec announced via Twitter that they're releasing two new Assassin's Creed DLC simultaneously, with the announcement happening the day before the DLC drop.
Ubisoft put out quite a few games in 2020, but as much as I loved Assassin's Creed Valhalla it wasn't my favorite game they made last year.
Do a google search of Assassin's Creed Valhalla and look at the images.
