Assassin’s Creed Odyssey – It’s Grindy, It’s Greedy, It’s Ubisoft! (Jimpressions)

Assassin’s Creed Odyssey is one damn greedy game. In addition to its half dozen special editions, its Amazon Alexa tie-in, its Totino’s promotion, and its season pass, it’s filled to the brim with microtransactions. As well as all that, it’s been purposefully turned into a grindfest in order to sell XP boosters, like this is some free-to-play mobile game.

Fee-to-pay games are back in a major way. More like Assassin’s Greed!

Shadow Of The Tomb Raider – A Shadow Of Its Former Self (Jimpressions)

Shadow of the Tomb Raider is fine. It’s simply okay, in a mundane way. While the previous games in the “reboot” continuity were great action adventures, this is predominantly a swimming simulator with a boring plot and dull backdrop.

Also, the direction this game takes, with its lacking combat and focus on restrictive exploration, is a little baffling.

Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age is pretty good. Square Enix have put out a pretty good JRPG that, shockingly, doesn’t need to reinvent itself with every sequel.

While I’m not quite as in love with it as some critics, I do enjoy it a lot. Like most DQ games, it’s simply a pleasant ride.

We Happy Few – A Joyless Broken Disaster (Jimpressions)

NEW MERCH SITE COMING SOON!

The utter state We Happy Few was released in is unbelievable. Despite a successful Kickstarter, Gearbox support, and years of development, this mess should never have left Early Access.

Nothing short of a mega patch will fix everything truly messed up about this game. If you can imagine a game bug, any game bug, We Happy Few probably has it.
