There’s an old saying that married men don’t live longer, it just feels longer, and while I don’t necessary think that’s true – perhaps a similar saying could be coined for that of achievement hunters. To keep going with metaphors: it’s turning into a long time between drinks for achievements in Black Flag.
After a solid 60-90 minutes of storyline grinding, I didn’t seem any closer to unlocking one of the campaign achievements, and because it’s rapidly approaching midnight, I thought I better check over the Achievement list and see what was achieveable in a short space of time. Sure enough, I was sitting at 97% completing for this achievement – earned simply for collecting 50k in currency over the course of the campaign. A quick trip to the Captain’s Cabin, and after flooding the market with all the resources I have boarded so far, after less than a minute I had sold enough to tip me over the edge.
I’d like to be able to smash through most of the Assassin’s Creed series before Origins comes out later in the year. The only one that gives me pause is AC3 because of its long, onerous campaign, which I’ve finished on PS3 but don’t have an achievement run done on Xbox. I suspect this will be added to the ‘nice to have’ list for the foreseeable future (though never say never).
This achievement is worth 20G and 26.21% of gamers have unlocked it.
