    If you want to avoid kill animations i found that finishing them off with a heavy attack usually skips it and results in you ragdolling them away instead. If the enemy is a stronger type with more health you still get it, but if your power level is high enough most mooks get ragdolled.

    I think I may have spoiled myself by doing all the animus fragments

    I don’t know what it means but it’s definitely a spoiler

    Now do the Seer hut to get the other half

    it's still not fully explained (even literally at the end of the game where it matters the most) but it does fill some stuff in

    Yeah I still have a lot of that to do

    I’m going to need a guide to find all the crystal doohickeys

    The scale of that place is intimidating

    ***

    I think I have 3 areas left to go in England. I’ve been clearing wealth, mysteries, and artifacts as I go, but I went exploring a long time ago and did the hardest (in my opinion) animus fragment (Isle of Wigt) somewhere around number 4 or 5 of 10 so the rest seemed super easy after that one.

    FWIW the crystal things reward is just a couple of skillpoints, also one or two of them are only accessible after story progression there, yet show up on the map. It's a bit frustrating to go looking for a cave that doesn't exist yet...

    Hmm maybe I will skip that

    I am probably not going to 100% anyway because I don’t feel like finishing out the hunting lists or the the buggy fishing stuff

    When the best strategy for fishing is to ignore the designed minigame and just swim around below the surface mashing the attack button, the devs done fucked up.

    That's how I'd prefer to fish in real life, too

    Maybe one day video game protagonists will discover the fishing net

    I loved in one of the monster hunters there is a fishing minigame that's literally launching a big fishing net at schools of fish.

    I would like some money because these are artisanal nuggets of wisdom philistine.

    Me during the Asgard stuff: Ok who the fuck is this Havi person, I have a passing familiarity with Norse mythology and I never heard of them

    Also me: Ok seriously where the hell is Odin

    Finally I google the name Havi and the answer is so glaringly obvious I can’t believe I never put it together

    Game crashed on me several times on the PS5. I think it's just buggy.

    I knew as soon as i met the motherfucker that I was going to have to kill Ivarr at some point.

    I denied him Valhalla. And told Ubbe the truth, or at least as much as he cared to know.

    Man, Ceolbert though. He was pretty decent for a Saxon. It’s ok kid, I got that bastard for you in the end.
    Going back to the game recently, on the XBSX, in a probably futile attempt at reaching some definition of 'finished' (I bought the season pass at some point because I'm dumb and had some 'free' MS fun-bucks...)

    And guess what happens, during this particular boss-fight?:
    Fucking Ivarr, right in the middle of the fight, fuckin' sits the fuck down in a cross-legged pose, and freezes in place, and I can no longer do any damage to him with any weapons.
    The game then proceeds to crash completely about 20 seconds later, having apparently given up on trying to solve for health = X = NaN.

    I only realized what Ubisoft were trying to do there after a restart (thank goodness for recent autosaves) - It's a fake-out attempt by crazy Ivarr 'McSculpty-Your-Lungs' the terrible. I must have hit him too hard with an ability the first time round, since on the second attempt, I was more careful, and his short bit of dialogue triggered correctly instead of soft-locking or initiating a hard crash.

    RIP Ceolbert. I will rename my BattleWolf 'Bert' in your honour. So long, and thanks for all the Eels, buddy. :(

    Hello, Assassin’s Creed thread! It is I, Lucas, here to participate in the talkening of this video game.

    I bought the game at launch, PS4 Gold Edition with season pass, and started it. But I only got like 2 hours into it before I was fed up with glitches. In those two hours, I experienced the gamut of bugs. Crashes, freezes, animations breaking, audio bugs, not being able to draw my bow, and probably a few more. So I set the game down in disgust.

    Got myself a PS5 at the end of December and set about tackling a few PS5 games: Spider-Man, Demon’s Souls, and Immortal Fenix Rising. Also in that time period the WoW expansion came out and I played a bunch of that.

    Finally, we get to Valheim in this story. Just like everybody else, I snagged Valheim for $20 bucks and set about that glorious Viking lifestyle. And while playing Valheim a bunch, a thought occurred to me: “hey! I should collect my free ACV upgrade on PS5 and take that for a spin.”

    So that’s exactly what I did. 35+ hours of gameplay later and I’m loving the shit out of this game. It is really scratching that itch like almost nothing but AC can. I’m loving absolutely everything about it. The story, the town building, the combat, the longboat river raids, flyting, orteg, and just everything in general.

    At 35 hours I’m still pretty early in the story in England because I’ve just allowed myself to be distracted by the blowing of the wind and follow where adventure leads.

    I even find myself caring about the meta-plot in the real world, which is a series first for me.

    Anyway. That’s my story. Playing on PS5 and loving it. The End.

    Finished Origins, or the main game at least. I'm level 36 and when I check the DLC it says 45 to start - also, it offers to level me up to 45 at the main screen. Normally I wouldn't, but I've been giving it a lot of side eye just because I don't have 200 hours to finish this thing like Odyssey. It doesn't seem like it will take as long, but I might just say fuck it and take it up on the offer.

    They should have left the wife as the primary, she's positively murderous. Bayek feels like a supporting character when you put them together.

    I remember reading a list that Ubisoft published - before the release of PS5 - detailing which PS4 games would be compatible with PS5. The list struck me as odd, because it was the entire mainline AC series, with the exception of Syndicate.

    Did they ever make Syndicate PS5 compatible after the fact? And why was that game originally off their list? That's one of the best AC games and I would have thought they would want to make sure that one was compatible.

    I think maybe also the 3 sidescrolling stealth-platforming games were not on the original compatibility list... same question as above. Were they ever retroactively made to be PS5 compatible?

    And I guess in a more broad sense, what exactly does that mean? When they said Syndicate would not be PS5 compatible, does that mean the game will not work at all and just flat out is not even playable? Or does it mean playable but with possible glitches? Or playable, but not at maximum PS5 output? Or I guess there are several different interpretations for what they even meant when they published that list.
