"founded by Dean Hall, creator of DayZ"
"free-to-play survival game"
"coming soon,"

And of all the things to name it, they chose Icarus. Prophetic?

I wouldn't hold out any hope of this being "good." It's just another Playway game.

Me either. But it does give me another reason to behave like a ninja.

The now-viral post revealed one of Badalamenti's restaurant clients brought in $1,042.63 worth of orders during the month — but only pocketed $376.54 after all of Grubhub's fees were deducted.

So Grubhub gets 70%. And we thought Steam's 30% was bad...
Fear not, I'm sure Epic will create their own delivery service where the restaurant gets a much bigger cut. And maybe give away some free food each week.

I really liked Assassin's Cred Odyssey. It's a far cry from their old formula. More open world, more action and combat, less stealthy. It's evolved quite a bit over the iterations and I think this is a good direction for it. It's also good for short sessions -- easy to pick up and put down.

As for Ubi, I may hate some of their practices (e.g. their DRM and marketing) but they really do make a lot of fun games.

i had a great experience playing odyssey but i hate that it's not a stealth game anymore. they should've had more night time sneaky sneak missions with more robust stealth gameplay than just 'stick to the rooftops'.

Your plea was heard about 6 or 8 sequels ago, and in response He created ACTIVE CAMOUFLAGE BUSHES.

It is a little more complicated to be a good assassin since the reboot, though, with all the RPG stats involved. You have to make a conscious effort to spec into assassination damage through your skill tree and gear bonus choices, since it's not a guaranteed one-hit kill anymore. You might as well not even bother with stealth unless you're able to take them out with one poke of the ol' hidden blade... And that will come at the cost of your general combat efficiency with other weapons and survivability.

This is my beef with Odyssey. It's more of an Arkhamesque level-upathon (I don't like calling them RPGs when there's not much roleplaying) with arbitrary gating, than about being an assassin.

I just received an email:

The Catchweb Spidershrine mount for the Goblin Great Shaman is the first Arachnarok mount for the Greenskins faction, exclusively for players with Total War Access. (Hey, that's you)

Unleash this monstrosity in campaign and it will give you a cost reduction for spellcasting as well as reducing spell cooldowns. It will give the Goblin Great Shaman a decent buff but on the other hand it makes for a terrible dinner guest. (Don't worry, the mount will land better than the jokes)

WHEN IS IT AVAILABLE?
This item will appear in your Access dashboard on May 21st from 3 PM BST

Odyssey isn't a game you casually play for a few minutes a day and finish by the end of the week. You have to invest. For me, that is exactly what I want in a game. I want a game to tell me: don't go there yet, the place will fuck you up. It makes side-quest and random murder feel like productive activities apart from just dumb enjoyment.

I find it extremely silly how you try to rationalize different enemy levels the way you do and then have issues with it. There's countless of RPGs out there where the level 20 wildcat could fuck up the level 10 dragon behemoth. If you haven't gotten used to that I'd say gaming is a new hobby of yours?

You haven't reached the Oracle of Delphi yet. Tsk tsk. Reinstall the game and give it one more chance, mate!

Yeah, it's a new hobby. I started it about 35 years ago.

I recently tried Odyssey, after having not touched Assassins Creed since 2. My god... I had to uninstall it. What is that? Far Creed? The emphasis has certainly shifted away from being an assassin. It's beautiful and sounds nice, but the way it plays is just so infuriating.

Could not disagree more. Odyssey is one of the best games I've ever played and the far cry from the original, boring concept was necessary for the IP to survive and more than welcome, imo.

Could you elaborate for me, what is there to assassination in Odyssey beyond pressing F?

The fact that an assassination no longer is a guaranteed kill makes the difference here. There's a huge RPG element added to it. Whether you can oneshot someone now depends on their level and status as well as your level and gear. The combat is completely redone too. They practiced with Origin, they near perfected it in Odyssey. It's fun and rewarding now.
Oh, and the gear is beautiful and the variety feels unending.

EDIT: I reread your comment and I think I misunderstood you at first, but enjoy my above reply anyway Now for a proper answer:

There's a huge "assassination" part in Odyssey. Get past the first island, and after 2 or 3 main quests (reach the Oracle of Delphi) you'll find out. Be careful not to get addicted to the game past that point.

I'm okay with it not guaranteeing a kill in theory. The way levels are implemented and the gating system in general seems to force a particular way of playing it, though. Like in a quest where I am supposed to hunt a mercenary of my level - and they wander off to a neighbouring area where everyone is three times the level. A wolf can almost kill me in one hit. I'm supposed to believe they would be okay there? And that neighbouring areas vary so wildly in level? I was scouting around at one point and found the enemies jumped in level. There was no reason for it. I'm just supposed to accept that there's multiple high level neighbours... and that they haven't taken advantage of having a low level neighbour in some way?

I find it infuriating that it's much cheaper to buy or find new equipment than it is to find something I like and upgrade it. I find it infuriating when it looks like I can upgrade a skill but it tells me that I need to progress further in the story or need to be a certain level. The amount of resources required for things also gives me the impression that I'm going to have to kill, kill, kill... as opposed to be an assassin who cleverly approached a target whilst trying to minimise collateral damage. Meh.

It looks nice. It sounds nice. But trying to comprehend it with any kind of depth just does my head in.

In fairness, I didn't visit the Oracle yet. I'm around that area, so I was at least close to that.
