Assassins Creed Origins. Very good. It’s like an egyptian witcher.

That what it seemed like.

Anyone played Elex? Looks interesting ...

That's good to know. Most reviews praise the scope of the game with it's impressively designed world and superior quest design, but criticize the  RPG centric combat and the plethora of bugs.

Without giving anything away, what's the story like? Do we get taken out of the animus again? One thing I didn't like about the last few games was how the present storyline was neglected.

I really want to pick it up, but I'm unsure whether to get Origins or Shadow of War. Sure, they're both very different games, but they have some superficial similarities.

Shadow of war will be my next.

But for AC Origins:
- the present time story is almost unexistent.
- there are some bugs but they are minor bugs comparing with other AC or the full bugged Bethesda games.
- I like the new combat style.
- The story is pretty well designed, not perfect like the Witcher but good enough.
- The world is very very big and there are lots of things to do.

Since it's coming up so much in thread, I held onto these two links regarding Assassin's Creed:

- New Assassin’s Creed Has the Most Realistic Reconstruction of Ancient Egypt Ever Produced
- This Week’s Giza Pyramid Discovery Was Already Built Into Assassin’s Creed Origins

Thanks for the links.
The game is pretty realistic indeed.

I've been playing a lot of Dawn of War III lately, a real time strategy game based on the Warhammer 40k property. It's very similar to Warcraft III, where you build bases and units but with an emphasis on hero characters. The art and animations of the units and landscapes are awesome, unfortunately it might be the last time we get a game in the vintage mold of the genre with this level of production values.

I've had my eye on AC Origins, been hearing lots of good things about it. I just haven't been able to get into big budget action/role-playing games for a while. I really liked Horizon Zero Dawn on PS4 but it was hard for me to get excited to play it and I gave up upon reaching the desert area. I feel like I'm really aging as a gamer where I just want to play computer strategy games but I might check out ACO when it goes on sale.

I played a bit of it but found the multiplayer too confusing (as in, how do I actually search for a game). I'll probably give it another shot though. The campaign was cool enough.

More with Dark Souls III. The Nersei Proyas build is complete and I am now playing with Drusas Achamian. Honestly, he's probably the best build I've ever had. Then again, he's pure intel, so....

I haven't played any Dawn of War, but I might put that in the maybe pile.

Currently playing ACO, its fun but still an action-rpg, just heavier on the RPG this time around.
I might recommend you check out Shadow of Morrdor or its recent sequal - simply because there's a bit of army recruiting/building, though its ARPG too.

I know what you mean. I used to love RTSs and RPGs equally, but have found in the last few years more difficultly getting excited about RPGs, even when I pick one up that I've been waiting for a long time.

BTW, you should play SC2 :D .

I love all the words in that sentence, lol. DS3 Proyas or Akka build would be very satisfying - easy to Role-Play, especially post-TUC (you need to finish reading it!).

Play AoE, not SC. AoE is superior. Give me one month Wilshire, and I will 1v1 you in SC2.
