The Late Gamer Plays Assassin’s Creed – Odyssey: The Fate Of Atlantis

A Review By Hidai Moya

Ditching the historical realism of the Peloponnesian War, this DLC ventures fully into Greek Myth across 3 dazzling realms: Elysium, Hades, & Atlantis.
Atlantis being the highlight of the 3 with its stunning architecture & waterways make it one of the most beautiful locales of the entire franchise.

Each realm tells its own story, the weakest being the 1st chapter but by the time we get to Hades & Atlantis the story becomes far more rewarding. New powerful Isu enemy types provide more challenging combat especially since we get to unlock new Isu enhanced abilities that truly make you the feel like a Demi God in a fight.
Admittedly its weakest point is the modern day stuff but ignoring that, fighting enemy outposts across gorgeous backdrops from Greek Myth is very epic & tons of fun.
It’s AC at its most fantastical.
Grade B+

Late Gamer Plays Doom

A Review By Hidai Moya

This is every Christian parents worst nightmare & every gamer’s wet dream. Satanic iconography, hardcore heavy metal music, demonic occultism, & extreme graphic violence combine together to create an unholy alliance of orgasmic carnage.
An anemic story is just a conduit to deliver nerve wrecking battles between you & the macabre demons who have escaped from hell.

Ravenous in their desire to rip you to shreds one must continuously run & gun to avoid dying & tear them to pieces before they do the same to you. You aren’t locked inside with them, the demons are locked inside with you. When you are in hallway surrounded by ghouls & the heavy metal music starts playing as you reload your shotgun you feel your brain go into overdrive with a sudden flurry of adrenaline & dopamine.
It’s the most intense gaming experience possible.
Grade A

The Geeks’ Watch – Episode 177 The Great S1XE1 “The Great”

“The future comes, and now my watch begins. It shall not end until my death. I shall miss no game, withhold no news, report all rumors. I shall wear no jerseys and plead allegiance to no side. I shall live and die on my webpage. I am the word in the darkness. I am the watcher of the tv. I am the megaphone that informs the realms of geek. I pledge my hands and name to the Geek’s Watch, for geeks and all the geeks to come.” John, Jess, Mitch, Stephen, and Elizabeth talk about their week’s watch, then discuss Hulu’s new original show ‘The Great’, episode 1, “The Great”.

The Late Gamer Plays Call Of Juarez – Gunslinger

A Review By Hidai Moya

This isn’t a cowboy simulator, but a straightforward callback to the Western arcade shooter.
In typical Ubisoft fashion it takes real historical events, real outlaws, & real stories & puts its own unique spin on them (if you learned a bunch of stuff playing Assassin’s Creed games this does the same thing).
You play as a gunslinger who encountered all of the legends of the Old West from Billy the Kid to Jesse James & is out for revenge against the man who murdered his brother.

The shooting galleries are a terrific variety of Western settings. Staying true to its roots the shooting mechanics themselves are simple & effective & make you feel as if you were standing right in front of the arcade machine putting quarters in.
If you think Red Dead is too slow or simply need an alternative Western game this is the one!
Grade B+

The Geeks’ Watch – Episode 176 Jodorowsky’s Dune

“The future comes, and now my watch begins. It shall not end until my death. I shall miss no game, withhold no news, report all rumors. I shall wear no jerseys and plead allegiance to no side. I shall live and die on my webpage. I am the word in the darkness. I am the watcher of the tv. I am the megaphone that informs the realms of geek. I pledge my hands and name to the Geek’s Watch, for geeks and all the geeks to come.” John, Jess, Mitch, Stephen, and Elizabeth talk about their week’s watch, then discuss the documentary ‘Jodorowsky’s Dune’, the scifi epic that was almost made.
