I’m tired of open-world games. There. I said it. I like games that have an ending and a clear route there. A game advertising dozens upon dozens of side quests with a massive world to explore is no longer the selling point it once was. All it sounds to me now is more errands to… Continue reading Losing The Plot
I finally finished Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey a couple weeks ago. Like, finished, finished. Completed. Well, not entirely.

Then there’s one like Black Flag which has a really cool central mechanic (ships!) but really accentuates the worst parts of the series (missions… Continue reading Where’s My History Lesson?
