Since school was closed all last week, I had plenty of time to wrap up Assassin’s Creed Syndicate, which I did for the most part. The only things I haven’t done are the Queen Victoria missions you receive after completing the game, and the Dreadful Crimes DLC. Other than that, all collectible blips are complete.
On the one hand, I’m pretty darn stoked, because that means I can finally write up the review of the strategy guide, but on the other hand, I’m super bummed my time is pretty much over in London. I could do the Dreadful Crimes DLC, and I know I have other DLC coming with the Season Pass, but it’s time for me to move on. Jacob and Evie stopped the Templars’ evil plot, the present day story set up future games, and all secrets have been unlocked. There’s nothing major left for me to do.
When I realized it was pretty much over, I instantly became sad. I’m typically thrilled when I finish a game, but I enjoyed this one so much, I’m not ready for the overall story to be over. I have my fingers crossed rather hard that the Season Pass includes more story-based DLC, like Ubisoft provided with the Dead Kings DLC for AC Unity.
Although I suppose I should just suck it up and move on to Dragon Age Inquisition, The Witcher 3, or Mad Max, the other three massive open world games I have just waiting for me to finish. So many blips in those as well, and I have this mighty need to clear the blips. I did go back to DAI after Thanksgiving since I was kid-free for three days, and the desire to remove blips was strong once again. However, I was getting ideas on how Chris might approach certain situations as Vlad the Heartless, and the thought of starting a playthrough as a heartless bastard made me giggle. I may do that later as a Qunari, since they don’t seem to have many fucks to give. Naturally, I’ll be doing this with all of the spare time I have.
