Yes, I am still playing Origins.

Not that there is anything wrong with that. I am quite annoyed with myself for falling into a very 'Chamberlain' trap twice this week, wasting about an hour each time. Twice I have found optional war elephant bosses. These war elephants are definitely not to be fucked with but because of the rigid way in which I play open world games - open area, clean out area, move on - I felt compelled to get that check mark on the map icon stating that I had finished the area.

The first time it meant fighting two war elephants. It took about an hour of retries but I eventually did it and the reward was a bow that I still am not a high enough level to use. I should have retreated from the area and returned later with more health and higher damage weapons but no, I saw it so I had to do it.

Again, last night, I wandered into a war elephants pen. There was only one this time but this one is far more difficult than the first two. For three quarter of his health bar he attacks predictably but his pattern shifts so dramatically, so quickly at the tail end of his health bar that I had no idea what to do. The correct answer would have been to walk away, level up, and come back. NO! For forty five minutes I was stomped to paste beneath this bastard's feet. I never did beat him and this unchecked box is going to drive me crazy.

I may have a sickness. That sickness is called Assassin's Creed.
