warreni's Blog > At last, too much of a good thing? Thoughts on Assassins Creed Odyssey

Posted 19 August 2020

Assassins Creed Odyssey (or Assassin's Creed: Odyssey ?) is the latest in Ubisoft's long line of Assassins Creed titles. The 2018 title followed hard upon the release of 2017's Assassins Creed Origins , which did, at least, actually provide a kind of origin story for the order of Assassins. Odyssey uses the same engine and reuses many of the earlier tit...

warreni's Blog > Enjoy your lockdown inside The Complex

Posted 04 April 2020

You've probably heard of or played Late Shift . It's been in the Game Pass for XBONE and it's been out for a few years now. It's the story of an ordinary bloke (I have to pull out my Briticisms for this review, so my fellow colonists will have to pardon me) who gets caught up in a botched jewelry heist at an auction.

Posted 29 January 2020

Spider-Man is great. I mean, the Sony Spider-Man game released in 2018, not Spider-Man 3 or The Amazing Spider-Man or Spider-Man: Homecoming. Those things were terrible and best relegated to the dustbin of history. Nothing in Insomniac's track record (which includes odds and ends like the reputable shooter series Resistance for PS3 and the hipster-do...

warreni's Blog > The Outer Worlds is a brief, entertaining ride

Posted 08 December 2019

I finished The Outer Worlds last night after investing what I'm guesstimating was around 25 hours into it. I'm guesstimating because with Game Pass games there's no real way to track your time, unless you use a third-party utility like Gameplay Time Tracker. Weirdly this is not something that exists in the current iteration of the Xbox WIndows 10 app. In...
