It's kinda crazy though that a game set in an era known specifically for it's sword and shield combat does not have shields for the PC, while a lot of guards DO have shields.
True that, though AC protagonists have always been a bit eclectic in their weapon choices.
And the spear+shield combat style was designed to be used in formation (Not that the AI ever does form a phalanx) so it makes sense that a solo warrior wouldn't fight that way.
Yeah, those conquest missions are just an extended melee with zero structure. Notice how at the start of each conquest, Spartans and Athenians are all neatly and evenly mixed in little groups, so each NPC has a chance to be in active combat at any given time.
A solo warrior COULD still fight that way they would just have to drop the spear very quickly after the enemy gets in range.
Although not with the sarissa. Those are too long to use outside of phalanx period.
Okay, so I know Walthrough Mode is frowned upon here, but after reading an online guide on the Silver Islands questline, I wanted to show what I know about getting the best ending to make sure I'm not missing anything:
That pretty much it, or are there other factors I should be aware of?
I think that's it. Though I did kill Padrokles before getting the actual quest to do it and still got the 'good' ending. I think it locks you out of Kyra's quests, though.
Alright, I had to go back to Gamestop to switch my disk so it can actually download on my Playstation Four. Now, from midnight to two, I'm going to give Assassin's Creed: Origins a try!
Edit: Bugger that, I'm scooting it for Wednesday.

Woot! Not only did I get the best ending for the Silver Islands, but I also landed Barnabas a girlfriend!
I've been playing Odyssey after more or less abandoning the series after the Unity fiasco (I loved Black Flag and figured it best to leave on a high note) and I find it weird and amazing how a major AAA videogame franchise managed to do a complete Genre Shift from Stealth-Based Game to Western RPG and make it work, and damn well at that.

They had Origins to help them do it.
Syndicate helped, too. It was a pretty good game, all in all.
Next DLC is named Torment of Hades (unsurprisingly), and will be out June 4th.
It's going to be a barren, desolate wasteland this time around, it seems.

Iím surprised weíre still getting story expansions. Usually at this point itís just cosmetics if anything. E3 is next month, and the next game is presumably out in five months or so.
No it isn't, they are taking a year off for the next one, so that will be fall of 2020, probably. Hence why they spread out the DLC so much for this one.
Do we know that? I havenít seen that announced anywhere.
The Odyssey season pass is on sale on Steam for twenty bucks. Is it worth it for that price?
Absolutely, if you haven't had a chance to play the DLC before.
New DLC for Atlantis is out tomorrow, for those still playing.
I got sidetracked so didn't finish the first part yet. Really should do.
I think I'm getting bored of the samey combat though. Plus lack of Adrestia is a bit weird.
On Part 2.
I love how the trailer demonstrates Chronos' Time Shit ability with a shot of the player... completely missing his target.
Guessing he meant "shift." Though "Chronos' time shit" is one hell of a mental image.

I'm feeling a bit underwhelmed tbh. Odyssey was amazing but... it's a finished thing? I think that's the best way to put it. Trying to make it the ONLY game I play is... exhausting. And it hasn't got enough variation to keep going. Fun to log in and do things but the missions are VERY repetitive and the animations all a bit stilted.
"And when he is finished, the universe will be flushed."
Yeah, these DL Cs have a bit of a diminishing return.
