Assassin’s Creed Odyssey Review

Assassin’s Creed Odyssey Review
Released on October 5th, 2018 Assassin’s Creed Odyssey is the latest installment in the AC franchise. The game takes the player back to Ancient Greece and the Peloponnesian War which pit Athens against Sparta. In a first for the franchise, players can choose either a male or female mercenary—Alexios or Kassandra, who are siblings. This choice does not affect the story line and just allows for slight customization for the player. Your job as a mercenary is to reap the benefits of war while investigating the Cult of Kosmos, a secret society hellbent on controlling all of Greece.
Odyssey introduces open world exploration and a choice/consequence mechanism, moving the series toward an Open World RPG genre. The map is huge, even for Assassin's Creed and allows for your character to sail from island to island, fighting pirates or pillaging merchant ships along the way. After about 20 hours of game play, I had uncovered about 1/4 of the map. As with all Assassin's Creed games, the focus is on figuring out who is trying to kill you and takeover the world, in this case the powerful Cult of Kosmos. The cult is comprised of dozens and dozens of rich, power-hungry members that you must hunt down to uncover more clues.
There are a lot of really interesting aspects to Assassin's Creed Odyssey and the character development will ensure you remember your character for a long time to come (We miss you though, Ezio). Venturing through Ancient Greece is beautiful and captivating, and the story is incredibly interesting--et tu, papa? If you break the law, you'll end up with a bounty and mercenaries will attempt to chase you down. Kill or be killed.
As with most AC titles, you have a beloved mount but now you also have a ship. Both of these are customizable with skins, and the ship is able to be upgraded. While most of these customizations are bought or earned in game, there are quite a few options that require real world purchases. There are also "time savers" available for purchase but not enough to include this as a "pay to win" title. Ultimately, you can easily enjoy the game without feeling like you have to spend more money or that you'll fall behind your friends if they throw money at the game.
Pros
Graphics Open world exploration Naval combat and ship customization Combat system improved A lengthy game Choices have consequences Cons
Minor bugs and glitches Occasional texture loss Convoluted story Conclusion: Assassin’s Creed Odyssey takes the series in a new, incredible direction that is worth playing. The strides that Odyssey takes with choices and naval combat are much greater than the issues with the game. You must learn who to help and to trust, the wrong decisions will have consequences. In the end, there were bugs and glitches; some causing an untimely demise. However, they were few, far in between, and patched within a few days for the most part. There certainly weren't enough glitches that it hurt the immersion...they mostly just created some laughs. Overall, Assassin's Creed Odyssey earns an 8 out of 10 and I'd definitely recommend it.

The Final Push

On the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month, TG's Tactical Warfare 2nd Corps Battlefield Division will gather together to bid farewell to a game we've had fun playing for two years: Battlefield 1. 
 
This event takes place one hundred years -- to the day --from the cease fire agreement that was signed on 11:00 a.m., 11 November 1918, ending World War I. In addition to being an opportunity to game together as the entirety of TG’s Battlefield Division, the event is meant to underscore the special relationship that the World War I Allies share to this present day. Most of all, our banding together is to honor those that have fallen -- not only in this "Great War," but also in World War II, as this day is a Day of Remembrance every year (Remembrance Day, Armistice Day, Veteran's Day).
 
The Final Push begins at 11:00 a.m., EST (4 p.m. BST) on Sunday, the 11th, and lasts as long as there are members gaming together. All division members are encouraged to game particularly with members from opposite battalions. 
 
IamJoker, XB1/2nd BTN XO, will be renting a private server, UK/EU based. We expect some latency issues, so it’s likely we will also be gaming on a public server, North American-based. 
 

 
We’re hoping that members will take screenshots, game footage, and share interesting stories from the day, accomplishments, etc. Plans are to post these and make a montage for preservation for future Battlefield squads.
 
This goodbye to Battlefield 1 has been a team effort since day one; from l24n_d0m, PS4/2nd/Shropshire SA who came up with the idea, to XB1/1st CO TG The Messiah who named it, to XB1/2nd XO IamJoker who originally thought of tying the day’s Mandatory Practice into Remembrance Day and renting a private server, to all those participating in the discussions in the headquarters and general-discussion channels on Discord... get ready for The Final Push!

LoL Clan Wars Tournament

League of Legends - Clan Wars Tournament
With the end of the year fast approaching and winter setting in, staying inside is a lot more favourable these days. However, this is a good thing for the players of League of Legends as something exciting is coming.  
To find out more about the upcoming event, i spoke to JaiyoHD, Assistant Competition Officer, who was more than happy to answer some questions about it:
 
TG SmokeyB: So I hear there is something big coming to LoL, can you explain to myself and TG what is coming?
JaiyoHD: In the first week of December, there will be a League of Legends tournament where TG will be competing against other big clans. The tournament will be spread out over four days and will hopefully be the first in many to come.
 
TG SmokeyB: What is the schedule for the tournament?
JaiyoHD: The tournament will be starting on Monday the 3rd of December and will finish on Thursday the 6th of December. The tournament will be running for 4 consecutive days so Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. Each day one round of the tournament will be played meaning that there are 4 rounds in total. Games will begin around 7 PM GMT. On Monday and Tuesday, the round of 16 and quarterfinals will be played. They will both be best of three single elimination games. The semi-final will be played on Wednesday and the final and third-place match will be played on Thursday. All the games on Wednesday and Thursday will be best of five single elimination games.
 
TG SmokeyB: Can you tell us some of the pre-tournament rules?
JaiyoHD: To make sure that the tournament runs smoothly some pre-tournament rules were created so that no issues should arise during the tournament. Teams must comprise of 5 members minimum and are allowed to sign up with two substitutes. Teams must announce if they are using a substitute three hours prior to the games starting so that opposing team has time to review strategies, picks, and bans. If a team does not announce the substitute three hours prior to the start of the match they will lose all their bans for that day’s games. Lastly, we made a check in rule meaning that one of the two team leaders must check in an hour prior to the match starting to make sure that they are present and ready to play.
 
TG SmokeyB: Are there any in-game rules we should know about?
JaiyoHD: The in game rules are quite straightforward. No hacking or scripting and each team has a 15 minutes pause, if the issue cannot be solved within those 15 minutes they will either surrender or continue to play.
 
TG SmokeyB: What made you want to create this tournament?
JaiyoHD: One day I messaged the former HCO, TG The Punisher, with the idea of creating an event spotlighting 5 or 6 big games and having multiple tournaments for each game playing against other big clans. This would be a sort of Clan Olympics where each clan will get points depending on where there teams place in each tournament and eventually there being one winner with the most overall points. We decided that if we ever wanted this to happen we would need to run smaller tournaments first, to test run this idea and see how smoothly these tournaments would run. We came to the conclusion that a League of Legends tournament would be the perfect place to start and to go from there depending on how this tournament goes. Hopefully, it all goes to plan and we can start making these tournaments a regular occurrence also looking to start some in other divisions.
 
TG SmokeyB: Who else is involved in running the tournament?
JaiyoHD: TG The Punisher, the former HCO, helped me send in the sponsorship request. PoshGirl, the current LO for League of Legends, has been the main point of contact for TG teams and has been a great help in getting the TG teams interested. Otherwise, most of the organising and communicating with other clans has been done by myself. 
 
TG SmokeyB: What is the signup deadline date?
JaiyoHD: There is no official sign up deadline but realistically we would like the 16 teams to be set around the 12th of November. 
 
TG SmokeyB: How can people find out more information?
JaiyoHD: People can message me on the website or on Discord and I will gladly answer all questions.
 
TG SmokeyB: Is there any other important information you would like to share with TG?
JaiyoHD: f anyone would be interested in helping me organise more competitions, like this for other divisions, go ahead and send me a message either on the website or Discord!
 
An interesting time indeed for League of Legends. Great to see completions continue to appear. Great work to the Competition Team!
Thank you very much JaiyoHD for helping with this article.

Battlefield 5 - Silly Release Schedule?

Battlefield 5 - Silly Release Schedule Or Not?
We know with modern gaming, release schedules can be focused around early release, betas and premium limited time demos. It seems that Battlefield 5 has a odd approach to its release. 
 
The official release date for Battlefield 5 is 20th November. However, if you subscribe to Origin Access Premier you can play the full game on 9th November. That's the full game available to play 11 days before it launches proper if you're willing to fork out for EA's premier version of Origin Access, which costs £14.99 per month or £89.99 per year.
 
It's the same with EA Access on Xbox One, you can you play a 10-12 hour 'so called trial' on the 9th November. Unfortunately, this cannot be said for players of PlayStation 4, whom have been left in the dark.
 
Now, if you have got the Deluxe Edition of Battlefield 5 which you have pre-ordered, you can play the game 5 days early from the 15th November.
Finally you come to standard edition of Battlefield 5. You can play that on the 20th November.
 

 
It looks like EA are using the early access to Battlefield 5 to encourage people to pre-order a more expensive version of the game. If you're a big Battlefield fan (like me), you can see why this would be worth it. You get a nice period of 11 days to play it before people play the standard version.
 
However there can be a problem with this, if you intend to get the standard edition of Battlefield 5 on the 20th November, you'll start to play  when loads of people will have 11 days worth of experience under their belts. All this after EA delayed Battlefield 5 by a month, too. We've had this with games in the past so everyone can adapt.
 
I am a massive Battlefield fan and it seems like I'm complaining about the release schedule.. but I'm not. I've noticed a trend in games been released nowadays and and i think EA have pushed up the bar.
 
 
Do you think this is good or bad?
Please leave your thoughts and comments below,
would love to hear what you think!

How Long is Red Dead Redemption II?

Howdy everyone (that's appropriate, right?). Red Dead Redemption 2, the latest title from Rockstar Games, and one of the most anticipated games of the year was released on Xbox One and PlayStation 4 just over a week ago. But just how long is the actual game itself? Many gamers are already reporting to have beaten the entire story. WARNING: If you read past this point, you may receive game spoilers.
 
Rockstar Games themselves have confirmed that the main story of the game will take around 60 hours to complete, depending on the player this may be more or less. This 60 hour time-frame given does NOT include side missions, stranger missions, random encounters, hunting/fishing missions, and many other pastimes included in the game.
 
The main story is split up into 6 chapters and a 2-Part Epilogue:
Chapter 1 - Colter: 6 Missions Chapter 2 - Horseshoe Overlook: 18 Missions Chapter 3 - Clemens Point: 17 Missions Chapter 4 - Saint Denis: 14 Missions Chapter 5 - Guarma: 9 Missions Chapter 6 - Beaver Hollow: 19 Missions Epilogue Part 1 - Pronghorn Ranch: 10 Missions (John Marston becomes playable at this point) Epilogue Part 2 - Beecher's Hope: 11 Missions  
All 6 Chapters and both parts of the Epilogue complete the Main Story of Red Dead Redemption 2 and total up to 104 Missions -- 44 more missions than the previous game in the series, Red Dead Redemption (60 Story Missions), and 35 more missions than the hit Rockstar Game, Grand Theft Auto V (69 Story Missions).
