Manas’ Top 20 Favorite Video Games Of 2017 (And Then Some..)

Looking back, I am surprised at how many games I was able to play and complete this year, and also how many of them were actually great. Sure, it’s easy to pick holes in even the best of them, but 2017 was truly one of the best years in Video Game history. I tried to trim list list down to 10, but I just couldn’t bring myself to cut down on the games I had an absolute blast with. Even after removing games like Cryptark, Sniper Elite 4 and Endless Space 2 (which I am managing to subtly sneak in by mentioning them here), the list just wouldn’t go below 25. So I played around with the list, bunched games together and threw some in the honorable mentions. Screw it, these are great games, they need to be on this list. Play them, if you haven’t already! Yakuza Zero Come f...

Jasmeet’s Top 10 Favorite Video Games Of 2017

2017 has been a wonderful year for games. We’ve seen numerous titles release this year, some disappointing, some meh, and others just downright incredible. Choosing the top 10 is never an easy task, because one has to put a lot of thought into the picks. Nevertheless, here are the ten titles I loved the most this year, for various reasons. They may not be the best games, but they sure left a mark on me, some in more ways than one. Also, I do not own a console and play all my games on the PC, so you won’t find any exclusive titles here. Without further ado, I present my top 10 games for the year 2017 (in no particular order, of course). Divinity: Original Sin 2 The eagerly anticipated sequel to the award-winning RPG. Gather your party. Master deep, tactical combat. Join up to 3 ...

Gamers Who Paid For Assassin’s Creed: Origins Are Being Treated Like Pirates?

Assassin’s Creed: Origins has been out for a good while, and we have been having an absolute blast with it. However, if you’re a PC user, especially with an AMD GPU, then the story might be significantly different. Here’s what a user posted on the Ubisoft Blog, along with hundreds of others discussing how Ubisoft’s stubborn use of Denuvo DRM, lack of support, and no refund policy has left them with a terrible experience. So a little while ago Assassins Creed Origins came out. A lot of people who play AC games are obviously excited, myself included. Since Black Flag I haven’t been into AC as much as I used to be, but I was really looking forward to playing this new game. Especially since I love Egypt and really wanted to explore the open world. The minimum requ...

Remember When Ubisoft Thought Egypt Would Be A Terrible Setting For Assassin’s Creed?

Back in 2012, when work on Assassin’s Creed: Origins had not yet started, developers at Ubisoft actually did not think that an Egyptian setting would work in the game. Egypt and Japan have been some of the most requested settings for Assassin’s Creed by fans of the franchise. However, series creative director Alex Hutchinson, thought that these are terrible ideas. “They’re kind of the three worst settings for an AC game.” He said, speaking in an interview. “People on the internet suggest the most boring settings.” I am really glad that the game Director for Assassin’s Creed: Origins, Ashraf Ismail, felt differently, and went ahead with Egypt, which turned to be an absolutely fantastic setting. I still really want to see an Assassin’s Cr...

Looking Back At 10 Years Of Assassin’s Creed

What begun as a simple video game franchise back in November 2017, went on to become a universe in itself that comprises movies, comics, novels and uncountable fans. And just when thought that the future of the series was dull, Ubisoft unveiled Assassin’s Creed Origins, the game that gave a new spur of life to the series with its revamped gameplay mechanics and the vast open world of Ancient Egypt. Assassin’s Creed introduced a new genre of games with Altaïr Ibn-La’Ahad on the last generation of consoles, a genre where the player can climb on top of almost anything and discover historic locations. Initially, Assassin’s Creed was supposed to be a spin-off title of Prince of Persia where the players would take charge of a female Assassin who would have protected the p...

Assassin’s Creed: Origins Is Doing Microtransactions The Right Way

Assassin’s Creed Origins appears to be the perfect Assassin’s Creed Games, even though it features microtransactions. Yes, you heard me right, I called a game perfect even though it features microtransactions. The game does follow the current trend of microtransactions but it does it quite differently than Shadow of War or Battlefront 2 or other AAA titles for instance. For starters, it does not feature loot boxes. Loot boxes are rapidly gaining popularity. In its most basic sense, loot boxes gamble your real money for in-game stuff. But instead of gambling on loot boxes, Assassin’s Creed Origins permits you to directly buy stuff such as legendary gear, skill points and map markings, aka time savers, from the store. The best part is that all of the stuff sold in the marke...

10 Things Assassin’s Creed: Origins Does Better Than Any Other Open World Game

With all the time we’ve spent playing Assassin’s Creed: Origins, we’ve come to love the game a lot, and noticed how much thought the developers have put into making the world an absolute delight to explore. So here are 10 things Assassin’s Creed: Origins does better than any other open world game. Story & Characters The stories in AC: Origins evoke the entire spectrum of emotions. Gone is the melodrama of past games in the series (and most video games in general). Instead you’ll experience stories that evoke laughter as often as they evoke anger or sadness. Characters in AC: Origins are motivated not just by being inherently “good” or “evil”, but by relatable human emotions such as vanity, rivalry, fear, loneliness, pettiness, sexua...

The Sands Before Time – Assassin’s Creed: Origins – Review

I feel like I’ve waited a really long time to say this – Assassin’s Creed Origins is fantastic game, and not just that, it’s easily among the best games this year. After the last few entries in the series, I had pretty much given up hope. It was hard to imagine the series coming back from Syndicate’s dull gameplay and narrative, or living up to the graphical spectacle (not considering the bugs) of Unity. However, Assassin’s Creed: Origins not only fixes any issues I had with the series, it goes a few steps further and makes so many useful changes in gameplay design and narrative structure, making this really feel like a new start for the franchise. There’s so much I love about Assassin’s Creed: Origins that I don’t even know where to begin. This was the first time in months that I di...

5 Games Assassin’s Creed Origins Takes Inspiration From

Taking a two year break seems to have done wonders for the Assassin’s Creed franchise, with Origins turning out to be a great game. As much as we like the game, we can also notice some major titles that seem to have inspired the different elements in Origins, and it’s sure worth mentioning. Here are the 5 games that seem to have a major influence on Assassin’s Creed Origins. 1. MGS V: The Phantom Pain The first thing that comes to mind when you get spotted by an enemy and time comes a standstill (not romantically), is The Phantom Pain. The same mechanism exists in Origins as well and provides an extra layer of intensity to the stealth. Additionally, the amount of freedom that the player in choosing how to reach an objective is another area where Origins may have been insp...
