…who is the reason for my latest addiction.
A couple of weeks back, Pasha brought over four Assassin’s Creed games. Four. Because, you know, I have time to play video games amidst all that I do. Usually, I’ll game for an entire day and then it’ll be six months or so before I do it again. This past Friday after work marked the beginning of my 4-day weekend, where I planned to get some work in but mostly try to relax, since I don’t get to do that much these days. Oh yes, you know where this is going. Because I started playing Assassin’s Creed II prior to this weekend. It’s my understanding that the first game in the series isn’t worth the trouble, but he brought the next four.
I want to be there. In Italy. In 1478.
Don’t believe me? Read this review.
On a side note, who knew the game was all Matrix-y? I didn’t! Even better! And damn, I could possibly learn Italian while playing this game, there’s enough spoken. Even betterer!
At any rate, I left work on Friday and thus began a conversation that has lasted all weekend, and I’ll be surprised if he survives the next time my mother sees him.
Conversations with Pasha: a mother/”son” discussion
ME: *runs off to play video games*
PASHA: New assassin game comes out the 11th!!! And Inquisition (Dragon Age) on the 16th!!!
ME: How do you kill without being detected?
PASHA: Poison I think?
ME: That’s what I thought but how do I just knick him? Oh wait, I just have to walk by, huh?
PASHA: Yeah. You walk by and knick him. It won’t alert anyone.
ME: Fuck yes! FINALLY!!! Now I’m trying to kill 10 heavily armed guards in 1 minute. I can get 9 before time runs out. Ugh. *next day* I finally got it late last night. Those fuckers are damn difficult to kill!
PASHA: Do you have smoke bombs? Those should make it way easier… Also double kills…with smoke
ME: I do not have smoke bombs! Where do I get those?!!!
PASHA: They’re part of the story…I think…
ME: I must not have unlocked that part yet. I’ll get there. I have 3 seals so far and need 12 more codex pages. Oh! The scorpion looking glowy thingy….it says “Their power will CUT down their enemies.” Or something like that. I am at a loss as to which images are the correct ones. I tried myth and real and every other combo. I may need to Google each one to figure this out. LOL
PASHA: They’re definitely part of the storyline…you’ll get there. 🙂
ME: Umi even tried to help me with the last one and she couldn’t figure it out. LOL
PASHA: She might be able to tell you if they’re historically accurate….I mean she was there, right??? 😉
ME: Oh, she’s going to kill you. LOL
Brave boy, this one is.
In my defense on that puzzle mentioned above, it was nearly 3am and I hadn’t gotten back to solving it by the end of this conversation, but I will. Oh yes I will. Actually, I’ll totally cheat on this. *grins*
LATER: It actually stated “The power they wielded CUT down their enemies” and I found a Glyph Puzzle cheat because I am not beneath cheating a game when they make a puzzle like that so goddamn difficult. The correct answers don’t even make sense!
And I finally got the smoke bombs! Now to kill off five conspirators without being detected, which is a helluva lot more fucking difficult than it sounds…apparently.
