Assassins Creed Origins - the Spoiler Edition


So… I found a couple of legs sticking up from the ground.


You should be fine. I hit that last patch at level 30 – seriously, what were they thinking? – and got bored grinding out levels trying to catch up to level 35. So I said “screw it” and jumped in at level 32 and didn’t have much problem.



Oh good, at 33, and I just want to get it done.


So the Hippodrome… does anyone actually like doing the races?

I do not.


I hate it. The tutorial was a P.A.I.N and I haven’t set foot in there since.


There are hippo races in this game?

Interest level … rising.


Yeah , there should have been almost no way to lose the tutorial, yet I did the first time. And barely beat it the 2nd time.

Also the payout for races aren’t worth the time involved.

@divedivedive Hippodrome has no hippo’s sadly.


Unfortunately not, there are regular horse races at the Hippodrome.
I see at the trophy collection that there’s is some kind of Crocodile arena though, unless that name is completely misleading as well.


Yeah, and just so much going on for a race. Trampede your oppononents, dodge, draft… nope, just nope.


Nope - hated it, but then again, I’ve always hated driving in AC games. I actually ragequit and uninstalled Revelations when I died the third time in the damn mandatory coach driving.


Going out to the pyramids in Giza is just… so… wow. Absolutely love it. And canI say how happy I am that there where no creepy enemies inside the pyramids?


The mummy DLC will cover that. :)


You guys do know that hippo means horse, right? So, yes, there are hippo races! :) Sadly, no hippopotamus races.

That is not racing, fortunately. I’m not sure it’s much better, but it’s not racing.



Oh. I had no idea!


Hippo = horse, potamus = river.

So hippopotamuses are the horses of the rivers. Or something like that.


Plot twist: Bayek is really Noah and he’s just collecting animals for his Arc.


I would have loved animal collection instead of the pointless “fit the star puzzle into the sky and then nothing whatsoever happens”.

Nope, not something like that. Exactly that! Although I prefer when the NPCs in the game call them river cows. Hippos are way more like cows than horses. What dumbass looked at a hippo and thought, “That’s what it would be like if a horse lived in a river.”

This is also why it’s funny to me that the Potomac River is called the Potomac River. It’s the River River.



Finally done.

The end was mostly decent but they skipped one major thing I was hoping to see. Oh well.

I agree with Tom, 2/5. Not my favorite AC. I’d have to think about where it belongs on my list.



Sorry :(

Am a huge AC fanboy but this was not my favorite. I actually did a list today of my least to most favorite AC’s :) So it ended up being a bit above the pack but not at the top. The end of the game saved it, really.

Assassin’s Creed: Liberation
Assassin’s Creed: Rogue
Assassin’s Creed: Unity
Assassin’s Creed: Revelations
Assassin’s Creed III
Assassin’s Creed
Assassin’s Creed: Origins
Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag
Assassin’s Creed II
Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood
Assassin’s Creed: Syndicate

Edit: The list goes from my least to most favorite. Yeah I liked Syndicate the most.
