Attika (Athens) in AC: Odyssey. I love history and will be going for the first time for my honeymoon in May '24. Acre in AC1 was also awesome!

 

Nice giveaway idea. Good luck to everyone!

Congratulations on wedding! Hope you enjoy Greece next year! Try to hit up some the islands if you can 🙂 

 

I went to Italy this year for a few weeks with the wife and it was great. Great food, lots of little sights along our drive. Got some AC2 vibes in Florence.

That's a difficult one to answer as 2 come to mind. AC Origins broke the normal formular of game engine and made in to something awesome. The storey was great at explaining the origin of the Assassins and Templars. The other is Black Flag the game killed the lore/modern day storyline, but it pirates and navel combat which was awesome.  

 

A notable mention would be Valhalla, however the game is long.

This is awesome 😍

 

Count me out on prizes, but I think my favorite is Odyssey. I haven't personally played any yet but @mmcdonald12 plays them all on our TV and I watch. I just bought her Mirage a few days ago and it does look very cool. But yeah I like watching her play Odyssey the most because she gets herself into seemingly unwinnable battles and does some crazy guerilla tactics to victory.

Thanks man! We are planning on doing some island hopping. We are planning to head to Laconia as well, and then potentially head north of Macedonia if time allows.

 

My wife just got back from a work trip in Italy for a week. The pizza and pasta photos.. I've been to Italy a few times for work as well and there is nothing like fresh pasta made in Italy with a smooth marinara sauce. Delicious.

I've not played any of the AC games, but I've had my eyes on Valhalla for quite some time now as—I'll admit it—I'm a Vikings fan (of both the football team and Ragnar Lodbrok ("Ragnar hairy-breeches"). Spent almost 15 years in Europe as a GI and while most of my compatriots enjoyed their shorter to much shorter stays there, I actually lived them given my fluency in Deutsch (which I initially learned in school as a kid) and Nederlands (which I picked up during a decade long relationship with an Xaviera Hollander.

 

What follows in the spoiler below sums up my thoughts about a portion of those years (for those who might be interested).

 

Spoiler

"On getting older..."
by Jan


A recent private post from a very dear and kindly person, who has been
around a bit longer than I, brought something to mind that I'd like to share
with you all.  It's not very deep, is subtle in humor, and is based on an
experience I had while living in a small farming village in Northern
Germany, near the city of Koeln (Cologne).


Back during my military days when I was still married to my first wife
Kathinka (a Dutch girl), we found ourselves relocating from RAF Bentwaters
in the U.K., to a small German Military (not U.S.) base in the town of
Noervenich (approximately halfway between the City of Koeln, and Aachen, on
the German/Belgian/Dutch border).  Noervenich was like any other farming
village found on the outskirts of the Eifel Mountains—replete with
cascading landscapes, which rolled on seemingly forever; a fair share of
friendly villagers, who (once they got to know you and the language barrier
was broken) were more than glad to sit down with you at table, and discuss
anything that might come to mind; and the sweet but tangy smell of
fertilized fields, that would permeate the air in the early Springtime, just
as the farmers were getting ready for the new season.


As we began that four year visit to this pastoral place reminiscent of
Monet's paintings, we managed to find an affordable, one bedroom, detached
home in a small village called Geich, about 12 miles south of where
Noervenich lay.  Anyway, we soon settled in and began meeting the locals.


At first, we may have appeared as curiosities to them (there weren't many
GI's in that section of Germany, especially GI's who were fluent in the
native tongue), but that feeling soon diminished, as we began to develop
closer and closer friendships with them.  One of those relationships I had,
stands out probably more so than all the rest—that with a next door
neighbor of mine, Alfred, 72 years in age and retired, and his wife Anna, 76.


Alfred and Anna were a rather curious mix, as Alfred always seemed the
archetype of health and happiness (he would ride his bicycle, when weather
permitted, an almost daily 20 miles, and was always joking about something
or other), while Anna was always complaining of severe aches and pains, the
nearness of the end, and many trips to the doctor she would often make.
They loved each other dearly though, in their own German little way, and for
those who got to know them, such love was easily discernable.


This was a couple who, over the course of our stay in that little village
(maybe 250 inhabitants), would not only come to know us far better than
anyone else there, but would take us in as if their own (they didn't have
any children), and treat us with many years of love and respect.


One hot summer's day, Alfred and I were standing at the fence that separated
his vegetable garden from the garage side of my yard.  Having already had to
put up with a heat spell that had thus far lasted two weeks, with sweat on
my brow, I welcomed the offered chance to drink a nice, cool, comforting
beer, with my most best of friends, who then proceeded down into his
'Keller' (cellar)  in search of a few full bottles of that ever-refreshing
beverage (German beer is far unlike American beer... not even the import
variety... you have to taste it, experience it, in order to gage it
appropriately).


Anyway, Alfred had been gone but a few moments, when Anna appeared and began
to complain about just how hot it was, and just how poorly she was doing.
She told me she had been to the 'Artz' (doctor) again that morning, and had
gotten a number of injections of some pain-relieving substance, in what she
termed a useless effort to alleviate her condition.  On and on she went...
this hurt and that hurt... how much longer would it go on... the nearness of
the end, and so on and so forth.  I could only listen carefully, as she
described her dissatisfaction with her current condition.


Then, Alfred returning from his trek to the beer cellar, bottles in hand,
having overheard what his Anna had been talking about with me, could only
look at her with his typical German smile, and say: "Achhh!!!  What are you
talking about?  Doctor's Geschpritzes (injections) and so on.  You'll live
forever, to plague me with your ailments!"  Alfred was grinning all this
time and I knew he was only making light of a condition that was more in his
wife's mind, than in her body.


It was then that I thought of an appropriate response to the entire
discussion, one to this day, I look back fondly upon, and smile a bit about
in remembrance.  It goes that I looked at them both, managed to take center
stage, and with a bit of understanding, humor, and kindness, said:  "What
are the two of you talking about!!!  You're not going to die soon, Anna
(very happy face there).  The two of you are going to live, ohh, another
thirty years or so!  I bet you'll live to be 106!"


Alfred, sneaky grin on his face, the 72 year old rascal that he was, could
only respond with:  "Huh???  Me... 106?  Never!  Can you imagine me, 106
years old?"  It was at that moment he raised his arms, let his hands droop,
and began shaking them with the appearance of a nervous twitch, sometimes
found in the extreme elderly.


Needless to say... I cracked up in laughter.


It's nice to know, that as one ages in life, one can do so gracefully, if
one so desires.  It's nice to know, that as time passes on, happiness can
persist, if one so deems it to.  Alfred and Anna, were true examples of what
it is I just said—down to earth, humble, and able to enjoy the simple
things in life.  They earned a most prized place in my heart, a place that
will always be, and never dwindle in size.  And though they are long since
gone... they never will be forgotten.


Which leads me to say one final thing before closing.  It's sort of a
parable I once coined, which I have since passed on to many a friend or
acquaintance, and pretty much reflects just how I feel about life in
general.  And it kind a goes like this:


"You know, there comes a time in every person’s life, when we reach the end
of a very long and winding road.  Having traveled that road is irrelevant,
having reached its end is the only pertinent factor.  And once we have
reached the end of that road, we can look back on the many things that have
occurred during the course of our lifetimes, dwell on them a bit, and
develop one of two perspectives.  Either we will reflect back, on the many
things that have occurred, and think naught but just how miserable life was
to us... or we can smile, think happy things, and say 'Gee... that was
great... let's do it again!'"


Jan... who while wiping away the stray tear from his eye, smiles at his son,
and holds him ever so close.


                 Now follow the bouncing ball:


"When I get older, losing my hair , many years from now,
Will you still be sending me a valentine, birthday greetings, bottle of wine?
If I'd been out till quarter to three would you lock the door?
Will you still need me, will you still feed me, when I'm a hundred and
six... dum dum."


              —subtle variation on the Beatles' song
                            "When I'm 64"

 

That's a piece I wrote back in the mid 90s about four years of that stay that some here might find interesting 😉

I guess I'm too late now, but Assassin's Creed Syndicate is the only one I've played. I really did enjoy playing it.

 

I must have seven or eight Assassin's Creed games in my library... just haven't had time to get to them yet 😎

 

Just a bit too late. Just waiting for winner to confirm via PM. If they don’t respond or claim, we’ll re-roll.

After 72 hrs and no response, I've included the additional submission, re ran the random number generator, and we have another winner!

 

Edit: Congratulations Acoustic!

 

While the sand dunes of Baghdad is significantly more arid than the Aegean Sea, there are tones of sights to be seen in this historic gem. Enjoy 🙂
