Virtual Tourist - Assassin's Creed Origins 9/27/20


I hope everyone is doing well. Still shopping around for an agent for Black Jade and got some work done on Breaking Dawn Cleaners. For my WIP projects, I've been setting up Pinterest Boards so you can follow part of the creative process as I find things to add to the story or research on bits.  Just click on the following links if you're interested - Black Jade Pinterest Board and Breaking Dawn Cleaners Pinterest Board.  

I've been trying some experiments to try to get Alien Redemption some traction out in the world - small nibbles, but nothing big. Since this one has been getting great reviews, I was hoping it would do more. Ugh. If you have the time and inclination, would you help me get the word out? I would so appreciate it!

Anyway, now it's time for...

Assassin's Creed Origins 9/27/20

Assassin's Creed Origins - Hippodrome

This is a hippodrome! Chariot races for the masses! I did the learning run and did abysmally, so I did not try to compete. I may be back later though, on my own time, as hubby didn't find it interesting.  Crazy stuff!

Assassin's Creed Origins - hippodrome interior

Here's a view of the interior of the hippodrome. Impressive, no? 

Assassin's Creed Origins - shipyard

The same town has a shipyard. Something I came to realize as I toured the country is that some tasks people did every day are emulated in the game. Like, people actually going through the motions of making pottery, dragging a rock for construction, etc. Such awesome detail!!!!! I think it is the coolest thing EVER!

Assassin's Creed Origins - tiled floor

As you venture to different places in the game, the interiors and exteriors change showing more Roman or Greek influence depending on the place. Love the tile work!

Assassin's Creed Origins - Royal Palace

A view of the throne room at the Royal Palace. The melding of the different cultures is clear. :P

Assassin's Creed Origins - Bathhouse

A bathhouse - different soaking pools, oils, and ways to get clean. (I forgot to lighten some of the pics for easier viewing. DOH!)

Assassin's Creed Origins - Lighthouse of Alexandria

Far off view of the lighthouse at Alexandria - one of the seven wonders of the world!

Assassin's Creed Origins - building facade

Is that impressive or what? Definitely full of Roman influence.


Assassin's Creed Origins - Cleopatra

We finally meet Cleopatra. Interestingly enough, though she loved all things Egyptian, she was Greek! She was the descendant of Ptolemy I Soter, a Greek general and companion of Alexander the Great.

Assassin's Creed Origins - mummified head

Mummified head. The guys in the back are working behind the scenes to usurp power and destabilize Egypt even further for their own ends. 

Stay safe and have a great week!

Also, if you need books to read, consider checking out the fabulous works of Rachel Caine! She is one of my all-time favorite authors, and she has terminal cancer. I want to share her awesomeness with you and also help her out, as the medical bills are stacking up. She does thrillers, science fiction, vampires, supernatural, and so much more! I totally recommend her books! You won't regret it! (And she needs the help!)

Thank you!!!!

Virtual Tourist - Destroy All Humans 9/13/20

 Good morning!

Looks like we're heading towards cooler weather. Or it could just be a feint. Here in Texas, you never know for sure. :P 

Destroy All Humans

Destroy All Humans - leaving the ship disguised

Crypto is about to board his ship. The Holobob energy is almost depleted. You steal the image from a human who then freezes and turns invisible, and you read thoughts to grab energy to maintain the disguise. The cow you see here is a giant cow statue. 

Destroy All Humans - forest

They have really nice detail for the graphics. 

Destroy All Humans - Alien Pool Party

Each major mission gets a cool postcard intro. These crack me up! This is where you get a new weapon that can do what you see behind him. Crazy stuff.

Destroy All Humans - beach shot

Is that not a beautiful scene? Look at the gorgeous sky colors! 

Destroy All Humans - Motel Party Madness

Each mission end, or if you die, gives you these super whacky newspapers. Majestic is working hard to keep everything under wraps. Some of the articles are hilarious.

Destroy All Humans - Television of DOOM

Television of DOOM! They are not exaggerating. While Crypto is running around doing missions and stealing brain stems, he also finds out Majestic is doing things to the general population as well at Santa Modesta. DOH!

Destroy All Humans - Aliens Stole My Brain Stem

Ah, the evil gleam in his red eyes. Glorious! :P

Destroy All Humans - Stunted Sniper Strikes Again!

Honestly, these headlines crack me up! Deformed lurker - hah!

Destroy All Humans - This Island Suburbia

Why yes, that is brains in his ice cream cone. Eek! 

Destroy All Humans - Santa Modesta beach

Crypto is reading the mind of the gentleman before the palm tree. These can be quite funny. But the important takeaway here is that gorgeous view of the water!

Buttons for psychic powers from left to right that I have so far. R - mind-read/energy, E - brain stem extraction, F - Holobob image, X - Forget (very handy), C - takes over the human and makes them act like a chicken - used for distraction purposes. LOL. 

In case you missed it, here's the new book trailer video for Vassal of El! :P
