A good beginning, a good middle, but...

It took hours but I finally got to the 'end' of Assassin's Creed Odyssey. Well, all three endings to the three concurrent story arcs. And none of them were satisfying. Seriously, hours and no real ending? This is the worst case of blue balls ever.

Of  the three arcs...

THPOILETH!

Being sealing Atlantis, killing all of the cult members and reuniting your family (or killing your sister if you are an irredeemable dick head) only sealing killing off the entire cult had any sort of connection to the Assassin's Creed universe, and even that was tenuous as it showed scenes referring to past (future) games.

I suppose getting the family back together was supposed to be the feel good moment of the game but unlike Alexios I could not as easily forgive Deimos for trying to kill me at every turn. And sealing Atlantis does lead to Alexios showing up a alive in modern times. He look damn fine in a suit but then he dies and it is back into the animus.

What I fear is that the actual ending has been excised to be sold back later as DLC. It is difficult to complain as the game still gave me hours. almost all of which was fun...

...but it's still bullshit. Part of the reason I play Assassin'e Creed games is the silliness. It needs to be kept at a minimum, as in Origins, but it still needs to be there. Instead Odyssey is a pretty good open world action RPG with no ending.

...

Mega Man 11 is fucking hard, yo.
