Moving Toward The Magical In Assassin's Creed Odyssey

Moving Toward The Magical In Assassin's Creed Odyssey

Asssassin’s Creed has always found itself at the nexus of science and historical fiction, trying to marry the idea of machines and genetics to what-if scenarios from recorded human history. Ubisoft's grip on historical accuracy has loosened game by game, and Assassin’s Creed Odyssey seems to be seizing the fantastical with both hands.

This series has had brief flirtations and full-on entanglements with the First Civilization (also known as the Precursor Race or the Isu). This highly intelligent race created humans as a potential workforce and eventually lost control over them, leading to their own decline. With Assassin’s Creed Odyssey becoming the earliest game in the series, ahead of even the creation of the Assassin Brotherhood, it seems like the Isu still have some influence on the world before Origins.

The Strongest Ships In Assassin's Creed Odyssey

The Strongest Ships In Assassin's Creed Odyssey

Naval combat is one of many ways you can flex your muscle as a mercenary in Assassin’s Creed Odyssey. However, if you are a player who especially loves this facet of life in ancient Greece, you may want to test yourself beyond the typical high-seas encounters. The team at Ubisoft Quebec has a solution for that: Alpha Ships. These are vessels scattered throughout the world that will put your naval combat prowess to the ultimate test – and yield commensurate rewards.

“When an Alpha Ship is defeated, the player gains the Alpha Ships’ customization options for their own ship,” game director Scott Phillips says. “So, they can now have the same hull and sails pattern as the Alpha Ship they defeated. Players also gain a lot of regular resources as well as some rare resources and epic chests.” So, if you like the look of the Porphyrion (pictured above) or the Theia (pictured below), you can apply their visual style to your own ship if you defeat them. Of course, that is easier said than done.

The Madden 19 Bugs Highlight Reel

The Madden 19 Bugs Highlight Reel

No game is perfect, but some games are more less-perfect than others. Madden 19 is out, and users are complaining of a variety of bugs – many of which are hilarious.

I recently reviewed the game, and while I'd see the random oddity here and there like a fumble of errors or a ball launch sky high, they weren't replicable or rampant. However, the community has found some doozies that should be in the running for our annual Glitchie Awards.

Madden Glitch Season is particularly great this year: https://t.co/TILWpyrETE pic.twitter.com/YZvgOGDbmH

Calculating The Cost: Budgeting For Holiday 2018's Game Releases

Calculating The Cost: Budgeting For Holiday 2018's Game Releases

Each year, the video game industry unloads a ton of games during the lead up to the end of the year. The holiday season has always been a crowded time for entertainment releases, but in the past several years, the game-release schedule has bloated almost to the point of absurdity. With that in mind, I decided to see just how much the holiday season of gaming could potentially cost someone.

I took our release schedule for the final five months of the year and placed the entries into categories. After grouping them, I found the MSRP for each game (and, unfortunately, removed the games that don't have any prices available). What I was left with was a snapshot of the how much money the most noteworthy releases of holiday 2018 could set you back.

The numbers this feature resulted in are startling. Of course, there are few, if any, people who will purchase games in this manner, but it provides interesting data points that speak to the holiday season in a few different ways. Still, if you're like me and like to play as many new releases as possible, you're going to need a plan of attack in order to prevent going broke.
