Photo Mode: A Moment’s Respite

The Messenger is among some amazing indie company this year, and I had a lot of fun playing it. There were moments among the action though that struck me as beautifully created art. This is one of them.

Photo Mode: All Out of 1-Ups

Even though talk of a zombie skin for Mario Odyssey leaked ahead of time, I still had a hard time believing it when it turned out to be official. It also meant I was required to pony up the 8,000 coins it costed and to take a few photos. Of course this lead me to getting sucked back into Super Mario Odyssey all over again.

Dang you Nintendo, your clever marketing worked!

Photo Mode: Ubisoft & Nintendo Sittin’ In a Tree


On a little island in Assassin’s Creed Odyssey you will come across a fireplace that someone has made, and up on a hill you’ll find a little leaf man. I don’t know that I would have recognized it for the homage it was, but Ubisoft confirmed it was a nod to the Breath of the Wild’s Koroks.

Guess they are big fans also.

Photo Mode: In the Shade

THIS IS…the opening of Assassin’s Creed Odyssey. It is indeed the Battle of Thermopylae and you play as none other than King Leonidas himself. The title is a reference to a line from the movie. Real fans will totally get it and everything.

Photo Mode: Greece’s Majesty

Assassin’s Creed Odyssey is a game that isn’t necessarily a technical showpiece of a game, especially when compared to the gorgeous open world of Horizon Zero Dawn. It is still a beautifully designed world with wonderful art, gorgeous green vistas dotted with the white cliffs that azure waves crash into.
