What I Played Today: October 27

Assassin's Creed Syndicate

I free another part of town from the evil gang. Surely just converting all the hooligans from one gang to another will make absolutely everything okay! But I kinda like the takeover segments of this game; if only the map wasn't a goddamn minefield in which you must hang out in areas way above your level while doing the story missions. Also, why are the two easiest areas at the very top and the very bottom of the map. How does that make any sense?

Also did some story missions, and ran into Charles Darwin, who for some reason has a vested interest in taking down a medicine cartel? Why the fuck is Charles Darwin here? Was Darwin known for fighting crime in his elder years? He's also goddamn goofy, so I guess he's the comedy relief? Well, I guess that'll make creationists happy, too bad Carl Marx is also in this game. Just can't win.

There's a mission in which you find out what happened to the protagonist of Assassin's Creed IV, and SURPRISE his son turned out to be a huge dick and joined the Templars. Great job completely negated all the effort we put into Assassin's Creed IV! Seriously, the more they blur the lines between Templar and Assassin, the more this "eternal conflict" will seem like complete bullshit.
