Have you ever played … Assassin’s Creed Origins?

One thing you need to know about my gaming habits is that I, ironically, love Assassin’s Creed. That is, the old sneaky Stubby AC and the more modern shout pillarage fest like Assassin’s Creed Valhara. Assassin’s Creed Origins is a nasty intermediate step between the two that acts as the first suitable RPG in the series.

The main character of Origins is Bayek, who becomes a truly fascinating assassin to avenge his son’s death. Sad dad isn’t new to the game, of course, but the way Bayek’s dreams of the past night spent teaching his son about the stars gives the game an emotional weight not often found elsewhere in the series. There is something to give. These short starry aides are scattered throughout a reasonably sized map of Origins. Upon completing one, Bayek will stand up, pocket nearby pebbles and continue the quest. It is these quiet moments that make Origins stand out from its peers, especially its successor, Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, who is in the limelight.

The vast desert and the crumbling pyramids are nice to see when crossing Egypt, but they are all pale compared to the “Baya”. I’m pointing to Bayek and his wife Aya. He may be the healthiest and most horny couple of all video games at the same time. They have been estranged since the death of their son, but in the fleeting encounters they have had over the years, they mainly want to kill the Knights Templar and screw in until the sun rises. It’s a shame that Aya doesn’t make up a big part of the story here, as she’s the best character you’ll meet at Origins. I think Ubisoft will be Ubisoft.
