The Late Gamer Plays Assassin’s Creed – Unity: Dead Kings

A Review By Hidai Moya

In this DLC, Napoleon Bonaparte begins his rise to power by seeking a piece of Eden buried somewhere in Royal necropolis of St. Denis. You must find it before he does by exploring its deep labyrinth of tombs & catacombs underneath the town.
St. Denis is a burnt out worn out locale whose beautiful monuments have seen better days. It’s gloomy atmosphere contrasts perfectly with the bright elegance of Paris.

Dead Kings introduces a new enemy type in the form of tomb raider gangs who bunch up on you like ants, but thankfully the game gives you a Guillotine Gun, the 18th century version of a grenade launcher, to combat them all at once (also introduced are some of the best cosmetic outfits of the game).
Continuing with inspiration from Alexander Dumas swashbuckler stories this is a solid spin off tale that adds more depth the world Unity.
I really thought it ended well & gave Arno a good send off.
Grade B

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+

The Geeks’ Watch – Episode 178 The Great S1XE2 “The Beard”

“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 2, “The Beard”.

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

My Spy (2020) isn’t amazing or a must-watch, but it is a surprisingly cute & heartwarming story. Chloe Coleman is endearing, and Dave Bautista continues to show us his comedic chops that made me genuinely laugh out loud a couple of times. This is worth a watch!

Charlie’s Angels (2019) is a lot of fun, and I really enjoyed the chemistry between the leading ladies! Naomi Scott plays her character perfectly! Ella Balinska was a convincing & mesmerizing badass! And I was just happy to see Kristen Stewart have so much fun onscreen!

We’re back for another fun #podcast episode of Pitch This, with it @AndyyyCanchola and I bring back a movie in order to give it a sequel and beef up that franchise. All that amazing wistfulness and #POPCulture news
