    Which is your favourite, Paddy?

    I loved Black Flag and Brotherhood.

    It was repetitive and quite dull, but it set the ball rolling for some great games. I like AC2 a lot and I quite like Syndicate even though I know a lot of people hated it.

    Ah apologies. Origins is the one I was on about in ancient Egypt. Not played Odyssey.

    Assassins Creed Odyssey is absolutely brilliant. It's such a vast improvement on the previous AC games I've played. It's stunning to look at, the missions are varied, the combat system has been revamped and is miles better, the characters are really good and it's absolutely vast. I really like the story too - they've paced it well and when things open up, it's pretty exciting. The number of side quests are ridiculous, and that's a good thing because the XP you earn for completing them helps you to level up quicker which you need for some of the main story quests.

    I'm taking my time with it but I'm 16 hours in and I've only visited 8% of the map.

    The main downside is that I keep wanting to do 1 more side quest before I finish which means a lot of very late nights!

    I've cancelled my fifa 20 preorder. gonna pass this year.

    AC2 fixed a lot of the annoying problems of AC1, not even really worth a look at this point, agreed that it's an annoying play looking back on it now.

    Odyssey is fantastic. Fighting the Minotaur was one of my favourite things in any game ever. Not because it was challenging or rewarding particularly, just because it's the Minotaur and it's fucking ace...

    Did this last night. I didn't know why you liked it so much..... and then it all made sense.

    The dialogue in that is well funny.

    I also managed to wipe out a cult member by plowing through his ship. Fuck yeah.

    I love this game.

    Lets go Pikachu is apparently a remake of sorts of all the Gameboy ones.

    It is sort of but has the original 151 plus some of the newer pokemon. Forgot how mad the world went for pokemon in the late 90’s.

    Enjoy the game would love to know if it’s any good.

    Kind of a remaster of Pokemon Yellow, specifically. But with some incredibly smart changes to HMs and random encounters that I'm actually really peeved haven't made their way into Sword & Shield.

    Yellow wasn't an original.

    It's generally still considered Gen 1, similar to Crystal for Gen 2, Emerald for Gen 3, etc etc.

    Red and Blue came first, together, Yellow followed a while after.

    yellow is gen1 don't be pedantic.

    I enjoyed Sun quite a bit (or maybe it was Moon, can't remember). haven't played the newer ones, but excited for the release coming out on switch. may force me to have to buy the system.
