I've been disappointed by how shit the legendary animal costumes are. They all look ridiculous so I'm just killing them for nothing.

I've having a go on no mans sky. I tell you why. I was really taken with constant escapes hilarious idea of playing games while listening to a podcast on delueze. The problem being I've not got around to the podcast part.

i'm playing assassin's creed odyssey right now and it's almost as good as this. the missions are whatever but it's basically made ancient greece from a concept into a real place in my mind. it got me to start the odyssey (as in homer) again bc now i have a much better feel for the geography and what it looks like when they're in someone's house feasting and whatnot.

bummer that the AC games are generally the only ones with the budget to convincingly recreate a historical period that bother to do it bc it's a really magical experience that no other medium does in the same way. gets you to think about what it's like to bodily inhabit the space of ancient greece or victorian london or w/e instead of treating it as a backdrop.

The historical settings are definitely the best bit of the AC games. I loved running around the Holy Land during the Crusades in the first one and mashing up slave owners and colonists in Freedom Cry.

That 'educational/tour mode' they stuck in Origins and Odyssey was a brilliant idea. Amazing way to learn about Ancient Greece and Egypt. Hopefully they manage to do it in VR one day.

!! i had no idea about that mode even and i've been playing it for like 3 days now. i like the embrace of the retrofuturistic optimistic view of technology. like when einstein said the television will be the greatest tool for learning in history.

i think sometimes you can play on PC but only nerds play games on PC. if youre cool you have to use a console.
