One Last Time

Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: Russia • Complete Memory Sequence 1 • 25G • 23.33% of gamers unlocked this

It’s E3 week! This morning kicked off with the ‘non-E3’ (eye roll) Electronic Arts press conference at 4am, and while I didn’t get up for it – I did want to watch it unspoiled so I was hoping for a quick-and-dirty achievement. Games with Gold delivered.

It took me probably 10-15 minutes to make my way through the first level of AC Chronicles in Russia. This isn’t the first time I’ve played a Chronicles game, but I certainly haven’t given these games a lot of traction. The reason is simple: I don’t really enjoy them that much. They are essentially a platforming strategy-come-puzzle game, and there are others in the genre that I really enjoy, but for some reason I just can’t get into these ones. I don’t want to write the series off entirely, because in all fairness, completing one memory sequence in two games isn’t really a fair run, but I don’t find myself thinking about it at every waking moment like other games in the same style. Inside by Playdead immediately comes to mind.

Anyway, that is it for today. Tomorrow at 6am is Xbox’s turn to run the E3 gauntlet, and I’ll be there on Mixer to cheer them on.

Given my current sleeping patterns – I suspect a very strong cup of coffee will be joining me.
