    Sure, it'll be a good reason to fire up the greatest driving game ever made! PSN: labarte

    God of War (2018) - Magni-ficent!

    Well I'm not sure I'd go as far as you, but clicking down L3 and R3 to push some guy's eyes back into his skull is a gaming moment I'll never forget. The fact that you carried the guy's head around with you for the rest of the game to use as a torch was pretty cool too. I hope there are still a few sick puppy moments in this reboot.

    Crikey, was expecting this to be a fun slash 'em up to play through at some point, not 'the game of the decade'.

    Assassin's Creed Origins

    They are at different levels, the weakest is around 20 I think. If you are at a higher level than them it's pretty easy. Killing ones 2-3 levels above you is possible but don't take them on in a straight fight because they can kill you in seconds.

    Assassin's Creed Origins

    I finished The Hidden Ones last night. I really enjoyed it, particularly the mission where you had to assassinate the chap on the big ship surrounded by smaller ones. I don't seem to be getting bored of this game, the world is just so extraordinary. I just played the intro mission to Curse of the Pharaohs and though it was pretty cool. Can anyone who has played the DLC tell me what it is like? Is it just loads of zombie fighting or are there still plenty of forts to infiltrate and missions where stealth is an option?

    Star Wars: The Last Jedi - December 2017

    No films is better than more like TLJ.

    Star Wars: The Last Jedi - December 2017

    Just tried to watch this again, it seems much worse than it did in the cinema. I suppose on first viewing the various surprises were exciting but now they mostly seem stupid. So much of it, including the opening space battle, is chronically unconvincing. I switched it off after Leia magically flew through space. I will probably try and watch it again but at the moment I wouldn't even class it as a Star Wars film.

    Assassin's Creed Origins

    I think getting levelled up and then attacking the main story is a good way to do it. The plot doesn't make a great deal of sense as it is, if you spend ages between story missions it's pretty easy to forget what is going on.

    Having spent a few incredibly tedious hours on HMRC's website recently, it was nice to load up Origins and get this mission!

    I stayed on my horse/camel for most of the fights. Fire bombs and arrows then some slashing on horseback. If they knock you off your horse use your special on them and get back on it asap.

    You get a pretty cool horse for doing all the chariot races.

    Assassin's Creed Origins

    Finished the story last night, despite being quite interesting it is poorly expounded and I didn't really understand who a great deal of the characters were. The finale was pretty damn good though. The rest of the game is superb however, I have relished being consumed by it and stuck in about 50 hours. There are still areas that I haven't explored and a load of quests left to do so I shall definitely be dipping back into the world, which is surely the finest of its type. I'm playing on a boggo PS4 and there are times when it looks as good as anything Naughty Dog have done, which is amazing considering the scale of it. Here's my comedic attainment of level 40, the so called 'Master Level'. In my defence, the chain assassination didn't work and the camera didn't help (but then neither did my wild thrashing):

    Have you unlocked the skill where you can jump off something, aim, and get bullet time? That makes it a nine!

    It's worth getting on with the game if you want to upgrade because different parts of the map are abundant with different resources. For example, roaming around Giza slashing up packs of hyeenas while on horseback is a very fast way to gather soft leather and killing the bandits there is an easy way to gain cash. Raiding ships on the Nile is a fun way to get copper and iron, particularly when they are carrying caged beasts which you can release. The world is big and varied enough to make the grind acceptable, although I shudder to think how many Hippos I've killed to get hard leather -- probably as many as actually exist in the world today! I would also embrace the combat, it's good fun (Bloodborne-lite) and the weapons you collect from the dead can be dismantled into materials.
