Assassin’s Creed Odyssey cultists: hunting the Cult of Kosmos, revealing their identities

Hunting down the Cult of Kosmos soon becomes the main focus of Assassin's Creed Odyssey. They're a band of nasty people whose goal is world domination through chaotic means. Their methods for doing so are by sowing the seeds of chaos; prolonging the Peloponnesian war and the suffering of the masses in the process. Assassinating them all soon becomes a primary focus in their odyssey. So…

Assassin’s Creed Odyssey money: how to make lots of money quickly

Money makes the Ancient Greek world go around, able to be used for just about anything in Assassin's Creed Odyssey: buying engravings, buying new weapons, hiring mercenaries, and paying for upgrades to the ship. It even helps when you find yourself in hot water thanks to a few nefarious deeds you got caught doing, as you can pay hefty bounties to keep the mercenaries at bay.…

Assassin’s Creed Odyssey conquest: how to start a skirmish, taking over territory

Set in the Peloponnesian war, Assassin's Creed Odyssey depicts the fierce fighting between Athens and Sparta was fierce and bloody. Due to plotting and scheming on both sides, many lives were lost. This war is simulated by having each region assign a leader in place to keep the peace. Should it deteriorate, a skirmish will begin and you must choose whether to side with the Athenians or the Spartans.…

Assassin’s Creed Odyssey arena: how to become the champion

Ancient Greeks were no stranger to blood sports in some places and while holding them in an arena would be something normally associated with Romans, it's no far stretch to include it in Assassin's Creed Odyssey. In the region of Pephka, there is a dedicated arena where would-be champions duke it out with waves of combatants to defeat in order to come out on top. This…

Assassin’s Creed Odyssey Xenia treasure hunts: where to find the five items

At some point in your adventure in Assassin's Creed Odyssey, you'll encounter a fine specimen of a woman named Xenia. She's a big muscly lass who's particularly fond of you as time goes on. She'll initially ask you for money for information either Alexios or Kassandra needs, but if you saved her brother in one of the game's many side quests, you'll be able to…

Assassin’s Creed Odyssey Daughters of Artemis: where to find the legendary beasts, how to kill them

Greek mythology is full of tales of great feats by great heroes that were revered by both the Ancient Greeks, the Romans, and even remembered in more modern times. Their labours and the hunts of beasts by any of the Greek heroes were tests from Artemis - goddess of hunting, wild animals, and the wilderness. Assassin's Creed Odyssey gives you the opportunity to embark on your own…

Assassin’s Creed Odyssey The Blind King: where to find the five monuments for the Prince of Persia

Though it may have been part of some of the more expensive versions of Assassin's Creed Odyssey that are available, the quest-line that The Blind King takes you through is one ofexploration. It allows you to find monuments of the past in the form of statues, temples, and certain famous locations. It also is accessed really early on in the game, provided you're not a particularly…

Assassin’s Creed Odyssey Atlantis: getting into Atlantis, how to kill the legendary monsters

After finding a very important person in Assassin's Creed Odyssey, you are told of a place you need to visit. Tucked away and hidden from plain sight, there's one other big thing that is just waiting to be discovered: Atlantis. Yes, that Atlantis. You can actually explore the fabled lost city and it is quite a striking place full of technology from the ancient civilisation. Accessing…

Feature: It's raining (molten rock) men

Has Northgard been improved by its updates?

It turned out that the end of the world came with a bang and a whimper. The bang came from the volcano at the centre of Northgard’s map — a new feature added to the Viking-themed strategy game as part of its free Ragnarok update. The whimper was me, realising that the blobs of molten rock that its eruption deposited around my territory would soon…

Space Hulk: Tactics review

In the last five years alone, there have been four video game adaptations of the Warhammer 40,000 spin-off, Space Hulk. Plenty of chances to get it right, you’d think, though the first three attempts suggest otherwise. And here comes Space Hulk: Tactics, once again throwing gruesome Genestealers against stompy Terminators in derelict spaceship corridors. It’s not quite a combo-breaker, but it gets very close.

Feature: Get Lit

Premature Evaluation: The Light Keeps Us Safe

The Light Keeps Us Safe works terrible magic with its cacophony of disquieting machine noises. Each new killer robot emits yet another nails-on-chalkboard screech that will bounce around in your head long after you’ve fled from their clutches. They’re the sounds of factories and dial-up internet and error messages warped and twisted and remixed inside metal demons. Normally they’re just grating, but here, in moonlit…

Feature: Murder History

The Hex review

Pony Island was one of my favourite games of 2016, a Trojan horse of astoundingly clever ideas and arch critique, and incredibly funny. So clearly I was interested to see where developer Daniel Mullins went next. I'm very delighted to report it's the extraordinary The Hex. A game that defies me to tell you anything about it, not that I'm convinced you'd believe me if…

Feature: Sibling similarities

The subtle differences between Kassandra and Alexios in Assassin’s Creed Odyssey

The argument raged for millennia. Titans clashed on an appropriately dramatic field, with internet armies raging between their massive feet. “Will you choose to play as Alexios or Kassandra?” my local grocer cried, eyes wild with suspicion. "They’re both the same!" screamed a man set aflame. “Yeah, I’m picking Kassandra,” said literally everyone else. However, after playing through the three-hour opening of Assassin’s Creed Odyssey…

Feature: Death becomes us

The Joy Of meaningful death in The Banner Saga

From the outset, everything in The Banner Saga seems designed to encourage you to be careful. As you lead your caravan towards safety, you try to keep people alive by rationing food, managing the number of your followers and weighing the dangers of the unknown. Anyone who has ever given a soldier in XCOM a custom name knows that it takes very little to get…

MSI Clutch GM60 review: A flexible gaming mouse that ultimately falls a bit flat

As £70 / $69 gaming mice go, the MSI Clutch GM60 is arguably one of the most adaptable mice I've seen in a while. It's ambidextrous for starters, making it a good pick for right and left-handed PC peeps alike, but you also get not one, but two pairs of magnetic side covers, an extra USB cable (one braided, one rubber) and an additional top…

Feature: The existence of Diablo III kind of spoils the ending

Have You Played… Diablo II?

I liked playing Diablo III because so much of it is like Diablo II. And Diablo II is amazing - especially if you got the Lord of Destruction expansion, which added a whole fifth act and two character classes. In fact, one of those classes is the Assassin, and she’s the coolest, so we should probably consider Lord of Destruction as the definitive way to…

Metro Exodus wants you to feel liberated from all those trips through the tunnels

It’s deathly quiet in the forest. Then the silence gives way to a man shouting for help. He's tied to a post and trying to fend off a ravenous wolf. A single crossbow bolt takes the feral creature out. The shirtless man pleads for my help to free him, cussing as he explains his predicament. I choose to cut him loose. “I owe you my…
