Just bought Origins and Odyssey for under 20 bucks each also picked up Syndicate and Ass Creed 1 for cheap. I probably won’t even have time to finish these games since I’m busy lol.

Sounds like an AC marathon.

I also bought the Ezio Collection recently for around €3, even though I know that I don't have time to ever play them again.

Yeah I saw them next to each other while browsing and thought it was a good deal, might as well collect the entire AC collection even though I gave up playing Assassins creed after I was so disappointed with AC3.

Odyssey is great, I only enjoyed Black Flag but Odyssey made me interested in the next AC game.  I platinumed it two days ago and my playtime was around 150 hours.  The game is huge. I would score it a 9/10. 






I wonder why Microsoft didn't buy moon studio but bought double fine?

Because Moon refused the offer MS made and wanted to stay as they are. Moon would be impossible to manage with 30-40 people working from their homes  or would force everyone to relocate to an actual studio which they likely wouldn't want to.

They don't have to relocate them to a studio. They can set milestones and have a few managers that keep Microsoft updated. Not to mention Microsoft could probably offer them good employer benefits. Ori and blind forest is this generation best indie game imo and they can't let them slip away.



Bought 24 months of cheap XBL gold (€75) and did the Xbox Game Pass Ultimate upgrade.
Now I got Ultimate until May 2022. :D

Still the owners decision if he wants to sell his company or not. Not every founder wants to sell what he has achieved just for some nice extra cash

Good to know and thank you for input, the changes to the franchise made in Odyssey and Origins definitely made me a lot more interested in the franchise again.
