While I’ve never truly gotten into the Assassin’s Creed franchise, I love and and respect it like it’s one of my favorites. Is that weird? Whatever. I’ve only played the first Assassin’s Creed because I have this “MUST PLAY GAMES IN ORDER!” fetish, but it was a bit dated and extremely repetitive so I burned out rather quickly. I’ve watched friends play countless hours, though, and I know it’s a series I would really enjoy if I just made the time for it. (I mean, what’s not to love about beautiful graphics, captivating characters, sea battles, leaping into hay from ungodly distances in the air and learning a bit of history as you go?!)
Now, I LOVE LOVE LOVE playing co-op. There’s something deeply warm and fuzzy about sharing the passion of gaming with another person, and uh, yeah, hi. Wasn’t I just talking about wanting to get into Assassin’s Creed? And didn’t I just mention something about loving co-op games? BLAMMO. DONE. LET ME JOIN YOUR BROTHERHOOD. I’m terrible as being stealthy and I have an antsy trigger finger, but I promise I’ll be the best and most enjoyable nuisance your brotherhood will ever encounter.
I’ve wanted co-op gaming for such a long time, I was so happy when it became pervasive in the previous generation of consoles. It reminds me of the good old days of arcade games like The Simpsons, TMNT, and X-Men. Except definitely better graphics!
Edit: Grad school’s coming, though, so I don’t know if I will have too much time to put into all these games, which is a shame because I really, really, really want to play ACU with all my online buddies. But for all the online co-op support, I sure do wish there was LAN support for people who can play in a room or house together. There’s a sense of companionship when you do play with other people in person, know what I mean?
Yeah, I’m definitely stoked about all of the co-op. It’s my JAAAAAAAAAM
I wish my friends were into having TOO much fun with it. Creating code names, status reports… “This is flying eagle. I’ve spotted the Alaskan salmon. I repeat, I’ve spotted the Alaskan salmon.”
Edit: okay, I could’ve come up with something better. Do you play on PS4 or XB1?
