Assassin's Creed 2 Review & Revisit


I finally decided to write something for the Geek to Geek Media site!  I just posted an Assassin's Creed 2 review over on the site that dives into the question of whether or not AC2 holds up over a decade later.

My Geek to Geek Podcast co-host has been trying to get me to write something over there for awhile and I finally gave in.  Consider this part of my revisit of the Assassin's Creed series!

Now I also need to figure out the balance of writing here versus writing articles on the Geek to Geek site.  I think I'm probably going to continue to use this blog as quicker thoughts that are off the cuff or more personal.  But, I may be tempted to write more in-depth and SEO-able articles over on the Geekery Blog.  I dunno for sure, we'll see.

But, if I continue to post over there I'll definitely make sure I'm linking to that content from this site too.  This is basically the one home on the internet that I own (well, the URL anyway) so this is a good place to capture everything that I do.

Revisiting The Assassin's Creed Series

Oh hey, look, a wild post appear!

It's been awhile since I wrote a regular post on here instead of just highlighting the latest podcast episode but I kind of... accidentally started replaying the mainline Assassin's Creed series.  So I figured I should put down some sort of record of it similarly to what I did for my Final Fantasy Project all those years ago.

My intention is not to be as in-depth as I was with Final Fantasy.  This is truly supposed to be more of a surface level revisit of Assassin's Creed to see what holds up and how far it's come over the last decade or so.

I accidentally stumbled into this replay because of an episode we did on the Geek to Geek Podcast about gaming shames.  In the course of that discussion I realized that I didn't have much shame about any of the gaming I had done and I really didn't feel like I had missed out on much in the world of gaming over the years.  As I dug into it, I realized that the only thing I truly felt I had missed was playing Assassin's Creed Rogue.  Rogue came out on the same day as Assassin's Creed Unity but it was exclusive to the previous generations of consoles for some reason... which is why I missed it.



This inspired me to immediately pick up the Assassin's Creed Rogue remaster on PS4 and plow through the game in less than a week.

Rogue fits in this weird middle ground between Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag, Assassin's Creed 3, and Assassin's Creed Unity.  It somehow manages to act as a companion piece to all three of those games.  If anything, Rogue is the mainline game that feels the most like a spin-off.  If you want to hear me dive a little deeper into that, check out the Geek to Geek Podcast episode on gaming shames where we discussed it.

Because of the companion piece nature of it, Rogue led me back to the Assassin's Creed 3 remaster that I had started but not finished.  I pushed through and finished Assassin's Creed 3 just in time for the (real) 4th of July since I thought that was fitting given the revolutionary war setting of the game.


And that basically catches us up to... now.  I decided to dip my toe back into the older games in this series and realized how much I still like them even though some are over a decade old at this point.  I'm currently working my way through Assassin's Creed 2 from the Ezio Collection on PS4.  That collection has a remastered version of Assassin's Creed 2, Assassin's Creed Brotherhood, and Assassin's Creed Revelations.


I'm definitely not playing these games in order so I'm not sure which one will inspire me to pick it up after Assassin's Creed 2 wraps up, but I can already tell that I've mentally committed to revisiting every Assassin's Creed game that I can get on modern consoles.

We'll see where that takes me!

Geek to Geek S5E27 - Gaming Prides - “How you deal with your girlfriend becoming the moon”

In This Episode:

This week it’s time to talk about what we’re proud about in our gaming history!  After last week’s gaming shames we decided to discuss the opposite.  Beej and Void land in very different places with where they feel proud in gaming accomplishments.  For Weekly Geekery BJ finished Avatar: The Last Airbender and Link’s Awakening as well as sampling some new games like Jump Force, Spongebob Squarepants: The Battle for Bikini Bottom Rehydrated, and Golf Story.  Void watched Hamilton multiple times already even though it only released a few days ago and he also crit pathed his way through Assassin’s Creed 3.
