Why is the modern story even still a thing, does anybody actually give a crap about that stuff? This is one of the main things that holds me back from buying AC games every time they manage to release one with a moderately interesting setting.



I think the original idea was: Desmond was going to become the Ultimate Assassin, by experiencing all of his ancestors' memories & learning all of the skills in the numerous Animus machines that he used, over the course of numerous games.


Of course, they ended that idea, by AC3....


AC3 is pretty much, the game where the series jumped the shark, in numerous ways.

And it's been continuing down the path and continuously shark-jumping, for a LONG time.


Sounds like w/ modern AC's (since AC: Origins) they are following the AC1-3 formula of Desmond here for Layla, but...the problem is, people don't really care about Desmond or Layla. I think what they need to do is - well, obviously - at some point, do a modern day AC game, where you are one of those characters. I always thought it was a missed opportunity, not doing a full AC game as Desmond. In this case w/ the reboot, they could have a modern AC where you are Layla.


I do think AC: Syndicate had the best formula for the modern-day AC stuff - as that was all NOT playable at all and that part was told through cut-scenes, feeling like a reward for everything you were doing in Syndicate.

Interesting hypothesis, but I have to agree with Souffrir--no matter how you slice it, the modern-day crap just breaks up the story to an annoying degree, and no one really has any investment in the modern-day shenanigans. Also, they could probably lose the whole "ancient alien civilizations" crap that has the stink of a bad History Channel series and it would do absolutely nothing to take away from what is otherwise a compelling and enjoyable series.


I mean, it's like. . .

Third Sierra bundle.


One noticeable difference is Timeshift, Velocity 2X and Gabriel Knight 3 are all in the $1 tier this time after being in BTA-or-higher tiers previously.

Is it just me or is the GK1 not the enhanced version? Because that seems lame indeed.

I'm not sure how the creepy dolls help. . . .


My brother tells me I should watch that show, but I can't really say that I'm all that interested. And now that I know they waste perfectly-good pizza in the show I'm even less interested. There's just no excuse for that.

It's one of those things that they've spoken of many times. They got a pizza, and expected to do many shots. And that was the first shot. So it's actually not Hollywood "magic" in this case lol. Pure luck.

Somebody's going to have to clue me in to the joke here. Is this a TV show where someone just threw a pizza onto a roof on purpose?

So, Kroger has/had Freschetta brand frozen pizza on sale for $3.99 a piece this past week (until end of day today).


Thought y'all'd like to see a picture that represents my freezer right now.



Holy crap!  I know we have hardcore pizza enthusiasts in here, but I can't imagine eating that much pizza in a year.


On a side note, is there anyone here who can use a 14-day Game Pass Ultimate trial code? It came with my new controller and it's only good for folks who haven't had a previous sub.
