Assassins Creed Valhalla
Look, I’m on record as absolutely loving Assassin’s Creed Odyssey and it’s still absolutely one of my favorite games of the past ten years. But time marches onward, and I’m now a Viking dual wielding a Dane Axe and a Doppelhander, so let’s all get on board with the new hotness, shall we? I think we shall. While everyone in Azeroth is dealing with being trolled by zombies 24/7 I’ll be romancing everyone in East Anglia.
This is me saying that Assassin’s Creed Valhalla and lady Eivor have won my heart, by being utterly unafraid to mix shocking violence, completely ludicrous side quests, deliberately upending a lot of tropes, and otherwise doing a great job of playing around with a kind of moral ambiguity I’ve not seen in a long time. This is one of the best RPG’s I’ve ever played.
Anyway, y’all have fun getting turned into monsters by other players. I’m petting a kitty. Let’s Queue this.
