The Pit People – Early Access Red

Now from the way I talked about Early Access last week, you’d think that I was against Early Access.


However, I do know that it is useful and I can understand why they do it.

I also do not see it as a bad thing… some games do need Early Access to help.

The question is… which ones?…  And how do you go about it?

Yet I have become frustrated by 1 factor of Pit People and that it is in Early Access.

A game in early access state can be hit or miss… in this case it is a hit and I’m happy to play the game.

Assassin’s Creed – The ACTUAL Review

So on the whole, what do I think of Assassin’s Creed?


This difficult for anyone at the best of times when there is as much wrong as right; but games that become films also have the pressure of not just those wanting a good film but also a film that matches the expectations of gamers.

Assassin’s Creed – Banging my head against the Wall

From the way I was talking, you’d think that I hate this film…

… WRONG!!!


I actually, for 80% of the time (the first 80), actually liked this film; the film was Assassin’s Creed and the reasons that it was working was because of what I mentioned here in my pre-release thoughts.

They also threw an indirect fourth wall break that I found to be very clever and actually tied into the concept of gaming as a whole quite well.

Assassins Creed – The Templars, flat-pack villain No. 2016

You know when you’re riled up when you start writing your second on the same topic in one night.


And when Alan Rikkin in Assassin’s Creed said that the discovery of the Apple was “end of the Assassins” as if it was the only goal, then I was expecting him to get a blade through the neck.

And when you look at the Templars, you find no redeeming value in them.  I played Assassin’s Creed up to 3 and while I didn’t agree with the direction, they did a great job of making the Templar and Abstergo believable organisations with goals and quirks, I liked to move on with them.

Abstergo and the Templars were just not up to scratch… and that’s just frustrating.

WARNING AGAIN HEAVY SPOILERS

XCOM 2: Long War – Suppression and Second Opinions

Sometimes it takes some research in order to find out why you are struggling with a game; XCOM 2: Long War was a surprise.

WARNING, not streamed for over a year or three, so not up to scratch.

When I was playing XCOM2 : Long War, I was struggling with getting very far, I was getting wiped out very quickly.  However, as I streamed my research live, I was surprised how I was able to take advantage of one key factor, and a mistake I made.
