    I went with Kassandra, seems she is the better option.

    Odyssey is super fun. It's way different than I was expecting. More of an rpg, still getting a hold on the combat system but it feels nice.

    I don't think I really use Icarus properly or grasp the crafting economy yet but I'm excited.

    I started into Origins, having spent a couple months in Black Flag, which I loved, and having played most of the prior titles, and it just hasn't grabbed my full attention. Is Odyssey better, worse...?

    I have only played 2-3 hours of Odyssey so its hard to judge quite yet.

    Origins was such a change from the last couple games they had put our and was honestly refreshing. It had far more RPG elements and such a wide open world to explore with an endless amount of side missions. I spent easily 100+ hours in the game and could have gone more if had the time.

    Odyssey feels very similar and I am excited to explore everything.

    If there is one part that is "lacking" in both Origins and Odyseey (so far) its the Assassin storylines. Origins had a good story so it didn't bother me, especially given everything else you could explore and experience.

    With all of that said, it might be a bit unfair to judge any of the games against Ezio and his story.

    I can't base my opinions on other AC games, I've only played the original AC over a decade ago and I just played AC2 for the first time the last couple weeks and now this.

    So pretty much everything is new to me. But the combat system is fun and way different, I'm liking the story. And I had no idea that about how pervasive the RPG elements are now, I love it. Have some Shadows of Mordor vibes which I thought was an amazing game.

    I couldn’t get into origins and dropped it after a couple hours

    Odyssey I’ve played just over an hour of and enjoying it substantially more than Origins, so much so that I didn’t rate quit after I got stuck in a geometry glitch about 15 minutes in

    Odyssey > Origins

    Kassandra >>>>>>>> Alexios

    Team Syndicate was a good game.

    Brotherhood, Black Flag, and Odyssey are my top 3.

    AC 2 had the best story/plot imo.

    I will never forget the time I had a similar experience in origins.

    first got out of Siwa, no clue what the numbers above enemies meant. I was a level 2 and they were level 10, thought I could take them on.

    I just got absolutely destroyed.

    was so satisfying coming back to find them a little later in the game and while them out.

    Loved Odyssey - the Atlantis and First Blade add ons are a lot of fun as well.

    Only thing I had left to do was find the 99 mercenary and take my position as the most badass mercenary in the game. Finally competed that the other day so mission accomplished.

    Odyssey gold edition is $24.99 on Microsoft store

    Gonna return my used standard copy and get the gold edition

    you can tell they drew so much inspiration from Witcher and Mordor games, which isn’t a bad thing

    I cheesed it a bit. I had a mercenary track me there and I hid in the tall grass for a bit. He killed everything, and his health was low enough for me to put one arrow in his head and kill him. Got all the experience and the Artemis quest done. Wonderful

    What abilities are your favorites?

    Hunter tree as a whole seems pretty underwhelming compared to warrior and assassin. Which is a bummer, I was hoping on doing a heavy assassin/bow play through but it doesn't seem worth.

    I think hero strike and kick are pretty great. I was using shield break for a bit, but I'm trying out time slow rn now that I've got it unlocked.

    Spartan kick is so amazingly goofy

    I also like the charged arrow, homing arrow and poison blade

    and just upgraded shield break to work on all shields >

    I really can’t overemphasize how stunning this recreation of Ancient Greece is

    Hopping back into Odyssey. Last save says I last played in October of 2018.

    - holy shit I’m lost at relearning the control scheme again

    So much to do and explore, really enjoying it.

    That was my strategy in Origins and it’s what I’m doing now. Love uncovering everything in a region.

    I have also really enjoyed taking on as many contracts and side quests as possible.
     
  37. Manny

    Manny I love lamp.

    I would start to hold off on all the contracts and mini sides. I got really bogged down because of it and was just leveling instead of doing actual quests. I was in Phokis and Megaris doin shit for too long haha.

    Not to say I didn't enjoy it buy I felt my quest log OCD was keeping me from exploring the other regions. So I just uncover and complete all the question Marks and do the main side quests instead of chasing the little ones and contracts.

    Just bought Odyssey and really digging it. Origins never grabbed me like this has. I think maybe the departure from the AC formula was too jarring at the time but now I've accepted it as a well done open world RPG with fun combat

    This might be a dumb question and maybe it will asnwer itself once I play more but...

    Who am I supposed to be supporting across the regions? Initially I helped Sparta but now that I have finished Phokis I have option to be on either side.

    Does this at all matter?

    Just trying to understand the dynamics of who and what to support while playing.

    Make sure you get the add ons for Legacy of the First Blade and Atlantis. The Atlantis one is much better so save that for after the First Blade.

    Hero Strike with assassin engravings is amazing

    This is how I feel. It’s says I’m like 99.4% done so I quit. As much as I liked the game it got to where it was inducing depression every time I turned it on because it reminded me of lockdown.
