If I were to rank the AC games I've played from best to worst it would be:

AC Oddyssey
AC2 & Brotherhood
AC1
AC Revelations
AC Black Flag
AC Origins
AC Unity
AC3
AC Syndicate

I'm glad to see Odyssey at the top of your list, I've heard good things about it and have been looking forward to it. I wonder if I'll have lost the will to live before I get that far through the back catalogue though! I picked up Skyrim for a bargain price over the weekend, so if all goes according to plan, I'll lose myself in that for long enough to forget everything I ever knew about AC.

In other news, has anyone played Elite: Dangerous? I'm thinking of picking up a copy to break up the 1st / 3rd person shooting / slashing monotony. Opinions?

Ended up 100%ing AC: Origins,
Some of the trophies were a bit of a slog (kill 30 enemies with a fire arrow shot at an oil jar took some proper grinding to do) but even the "Complete Every Location" one (of which there are hundreds) I quite enjoyed just because the world is so well built/interesting to travel around

Will pick up Odyssey in a week or two (want to have a break from AC games so I don't burn out) - £54.99 on the PS Store is a joke, so I'll be hitting up ebay

Wow, I balk at spending over a tenner, but to be fair, I'm working my way through a massive back catalogue of older stuff. I wrongly assumed that you'd save a packet using a key site, but was quickly disabused of that notion. Is that common with Playstation games? My local Argos has it a lot cheaper. I know nothing about this site https://www.thegamecollection.net/a...eshopping&utm_medium=ppc&utm_campaign=froogle but it's the cheapest I found.

Edit: I completed AC2 last night and it turns out I've got 95% of the in game achievements, so will be grinding out the remainder (mostly feathers). I have no compunction about referring to walkthrough maps, hats off to anyone who gets them all without looking online.

If the current 'sale' includes the game you want you can get a bucket off but otherwise it's full RRP.

Its a bit baffling TBH because they want people to come off "physical" media.



Myself I'm currently playing through every Resident Evil main game (including 0 and Code: Veronica) which has been fun hopefully by the end I can desensitise myself enough to be scared playing 7 and last longer than minuites. They were all on sale the other day so got them all as PS4 remasters, except remake for 2 (as I already had it). Been interesting plaing them in timeline order (well not quite playing 2 in timeline order is very hard) but playing 0 first and stopping 3 2/3rds of the way through.

Was disappointed with the 3 remake, the Nemesis has become something scary you run from rather than feel like its actively stalking you. Which is what they did do with Mr. X in 2 (although that is just a case of running ahead of it and planning routes of what your trying to do).

Aye, I've never bought anything full price from the PS Store, but will often buy something in the black friday/summer sale etc.
The annoying thing is that Odyssey was in the sale for about £15 around New Years time - but because I'd not started Origins yet I decided against it

And relax....I've just finished collecting all the feathers and glyphs, so have completed all the in game achievements (incl. treasure chests, hidden away in a sub menu somewhere) in AC 2. In their infinite wisdom, Ubisoft have taken down achievements for all but a few of their games, so I have no idea how close I am to true completion. Collecting the feathers was a real grinid, made all the worse for earning a cape that makes you notorious everywhere for doing it. Overall it was an enjoyable experience though. It went a good way to addressing the complaint about the original being repetitive.

FYI, Ubisoft are offering AC Chronicles China for free for Chinese New Year ATM.
