Assassin’s Creed Origins

  • A love for Virtual Photography

    In an industry which seems constantly under pressure I sometimes need to escape my escape. Fan expectations, financial issues and anti consumer actions are brought up in gaming news daily. Yes, that’s all important news but occasionally I need something positive, something to rise above the issues faced and...
  • Ranking the Assassin’s Creed Games

    After putting over 100 hours into Assassin’s Creed Origins and its DLC over the past year, I was hoping for some time off. There’re loads of games out there that I haven’t played and annualisation ultimately damaged the Assassin’s Creed brand so I wished that the next game wouldn’t...
  • The lighter side of violent video games

  • Without Assassins or the Creed, is Odyssey a true Assassin’s Creed game?

  • Entertainment Fatigue

    ‘It’s not you it’s me’ I think as I turn my console off during the early evening for a forth time in as many days. For a few weeks I’ve lost the will to consume much, entertainment wise. Games, films, TV shows, they’ve all dropped out of my mind...
  • Tanked Up 106 – Mobile Madness or Gaming Fatigue

    Lucy, Aadil and Ben are casual gamers. It’s true, don’t try to defend them. Ben hates games and only likes casual educational experiences like the Assassin’s Creed: Origins Discovery mode. Aadil hasn’t touched a game in months but has been poking Zenge a mobile game, a mobile game! Uhh...
  • Tanked Up 103 – The Dark Side of Gaming

    This week features all three of us, huzzah! But we chat the darker side of gaming from Epic Games closing down Paragon after only 2 years to the arcade mode in Star Wars Battlefront 2 being tied to the mulitplayer for progression which has been designed around loot boxes...
  • How Assassin’s Creed Origins Revitalised the Franchise

    There was a time when I couldn’t wait for a new Assassin’s Creed game. Assassin’s Creed 2, Brotherhood, Revelations, Assassin’s Creed 3, Black Flag; a run of truly great games. Sure, each of them had their particular faults but overall they were fantastic experiences and each added something special...
