WARNING: PESSIMISM INCOMING.
Both Super Mario Odyssey and Assassin’s Creed Origins have topped the games chart in the UK, although Ubisoft and Nintendo are likely to be celebrating in very different ways.
This week sees the release of the newest entry in the Assassin’s Creed franchise, Assassin’s Creed: Origins, and brings me to another tricky purchasing decision – do I buy the new Ass Cree game?
Hint: it’s zombies again.
Entertainingly, the game tipped to reinvigorate the series’ gameplay is also due to strip back all the new gameplay with the new Discovery Tour.
In a week where all eyes are pointed towards Germany for Gamescom 2017, perhaps it is unsurprising that a famous German figure would show their face.
Despite Microsoft flapping their collective gums over how powerful the Xbox One X is (it is powerful, that is a fact) third party developers aren’t ready to take advantage of it yet.
I just watched a storm-trooper gun-down an army of rebellions. Bullets whizzed past in 4k HD sound so crisp I gasped. And over my head explosions screamed and seared with the intensity of a thousand suns. I then feel a whisper in my ear. A whisper that “this is only an alpha build”.
UK Top 20 games across all formats for the week ending 19th November 2016. The bold new entrants are Watch Dogs 2 hoping to hack it’s way into the top spot as well as Assassain’s Creed : The Ezio Collection trying to sneak up into the top ten.
The Ezio Collection gathers Ezio’s part of the Assassin’s Creed series in to one pretty little package.
