A Too Early Game Review: Assassin’s Creed Odyssey

I’ve only just started playing! But because I think it will be about fourteen years before I’m done playing this game, I figured I’d go ahead and write a review based on my initial impressions.

This game is frustratingly expansive and overwhelmingly detailed. It’s a long, slow burn with many of the best parts of past AC installments like sailing, hunting, and serial murder.

Truth, Feeling, and Appearances

Although we were out of the country on vacation, we still managed to see the majority of this week’s judiciary committee meeting regarding Brett Kavanaugh’s appointment to the Supreme Court and Dr. Christine Blasey Ford’s allegations of sexual assault against him.

And it’s complicated.

Resort Review: Marquis Los Cabos

SUMMARY: (3 of 5 stars) This is a nice, if a little small, all-inclusive, adults-only resort lodged on a steep hill next to the ocean. Gorgeous views, decent service, and acceptable food. Our trip would have been improved without myriad minor inconveniences and if it had been shorter or had been with a group of friends.

Breaking: Bert and Ernie Are Puppets.

If people want to think of Bert and Ernie as lovers, there’s nothing anyone can do to stop them. And I don’t think there’s really any harm in thinking that. In fact, I guess if it helps someone to think Bert & Ernie are gay, then they should go on thinking that. But I think this whole dustup is pretty dumb because Bert and Ernie just are not gay. As characters, they are not written to portray fully-developed human beings with sexual/romantic feelings at all. They’re written to portray children who are best friends and that’s it.
