Assassin's Creed Syndicate came out yesterday and...I just can't. I'm just preemptively bored by Assassin's Creed at this point. I've climbed too many towers, dove into too many hay piles, and felled too many enemies with silent blades.

It's not a bad series. Syndicate, in particular, seems to be getting pretty good reviews. Still, I think I'm not suited to playing annual sequels. I just don't miss any series enough to get excited for a new game every fall. There are too many other options out there. Why pick a sequel that's 90% of what you expect when you can try something completely new?

Quote Of The Week
“[Robin Walker] made Team Fortress when he was seven years-old or two or something in the bush in Australia with no electricity. On paper. If you ask Robin in passing, ‘What do you think about people being able to pay for mods,’ his reaction is gonna be like, ‘That’s awesome! I wish I had that option before I was a professional working at Valve. I wanted to pay bills and have a customer base,’” - Erik Johnson, in an interview about potentially bringing paid mods back to Steam.
