I picked up the game with Christmas money — all praise to the Amazon Gift Card, which allows my relatives to no longer play that fun What the Hell does Moe actually like, anyway? game — and I’m having some trouble getting ‘into’ Assassin’s Creed: Origins. It’s not the gameplay or even the basic plot; I’m cool with both. My problem here is that I’m not really checked out yet as to the larger point of it all. I know, yes, this is the start of the Assassins and everything. But right now I’m kind of just murder-hoboing, with no real justification for it.
Which is how Black Flag started, sure. But I was a PIRATE in Black Flag. I had a pirate ship and a pirate crew and whenever I was bored I’d go take a prize or two. And then listen to the crew sing. So… not the same thing, really?
There’s a giant snake in Assassin’s Creed: Origins. Like, Conan-sized. I am not exactly sure why there is a giant snake. I am not opposed to there being a giant snake, but I would like there to be some sort of explanation as to why. I believe that this reasonable, surely.
