So, I picked up Assassin’s Creed: Syndicate on Steam Sale.

50% off.  Downloaded it last night, have been playing it since.  First reaction: not as good as Black Flag, but I knew that going in.  For what it is it’s pretty good; I’m having a fun time. It helps a lot that, so far, this is in no way a darkly serious game.  In fact, Assassin’s Creed: Syndicate is danged absurd at times – and it knows it, but it simply does not care.  I’m fine with this, actually. I just want to be a Victorian Batman/Batgirl who kills bad guys.

As I noted: super-sale, so check it out.
