Assassin's Creed Valhalla, Last Chapter. Holding On. Maybe.

A guy here writing about blah, blah, blah, whatever. Or here writing about something with some meaning that everyone should think about

Why I Was Thinking of Not Touching At First!


Reason Enough, My Reason!

The Choice

Assassin's Creed Valhalla originally released 3 DLCs, Siege of Paris, Wrath of the Druids and Dawn of Ragnarok. I'll be the first to admit that I haven't done the Dawn of Ragnarok DLC yet which, I was going to do after I beat Dragonball Z Kakarot, but unfortunately, I am putting the game on the backburner again. Possibly.

I was looking forward to playing Dawn of Ragnarok and I still am but now with this new DLC coming out, the Last Chapter, it makes me want to hold off on playing the Dawn of Ragnarok DLC.

At first, I wasn't going to because being that I am a person who thinks before he acts, I thought it would be ideal to hold off on playing any of the DLCs or the one I have left to do before the final DLC come out.

The irony of course is that based on the final chapter DLC, I wouldn't be really alleviating my workload in the aspect in accordance to the DLC because it could be as long or longer than the last chapter DLC so either way, I got my work cut out for me.

You know, I could've held off on playing Dragonball Z Kakarot until the Bardock DLC drop in January but I decided to get my fill of the game right now then do the DLC when it drops.

Exit Strategy, God of War Ragnarok

You know, dating back to when I made the declaration to stop playing whatever game I'm playing to play and beat God of War Ragnarok when it drops then go back to whatever game I was playing and beat it, I didn't realize that I developed an exit strategy.

Simply, I made the choice to do it like this because in the past, I've made the mistake of putting a game on the backburner for a year plus then I'm rushing to beat whatever game I'm playing so I can play that one.

For example, right now, I'm on the Majin Buu Saga on Dragonball Z Kakarot and I'm steadily making my way through, slowly. I don't believe that the aforementioned game is going to keep me entertained until G.W.R. drops next month.

I'm even trying to vanquish a mass majority of the pumped up enemy parties in Dragonball Z Kakarot just to kill even more time, but even fighting them is doing little to stay my expert level gameplaying hands.

I'm practically out of options at this point, I don't know exactly when I'll finish Dragonball Z Kakarot, but if my current progress in the game is anything to go on(a day or two from the World Martial Arts Tournament), the game won't go much longer. Sad to say.

The Ultimate Plan

What I may do is that if I complete Dragonball Z Kakarot before G.W.R. drops next month, I'll start the Dawn of Ragnarok DLC along with the Cassandra/Alexios DLC on Assassin's Creed Valhalla.

I figure like this, I didn't want to wait on the Bardock DLC to drop on Kakarot before fully playing it because you never know, another two or three DLCs might be in the works for the game.

So I decided that I'm not going to wait on the Last Chapter DLC to drop before doing the Dawn of Ragnarok and the other DLC starring Cassandra or Alexios, depending who you rolled with in Assassin's Creed Odyssey. I chose Alexios.

I want it go on the record that it is a little 'strange' to start playing a game with impending DLC because it is good to play a whole game instead of just the DLC, but I'm beginning to understand, just based on the actions I took with playing Dragonball Z Kakarot, that waiting is pointless.

Further, you're going to have to play the DLC anyway after you played through the whole game or whatever DLC you were playing through. Now that I hear myself say this out loud, it really was kind of stupid to wait so long on playing Dragonball Z Kakarot while waiting on the DLCs to drop.

I plan on taking this approach in all future games I have or get, it just seems like the smarter way of going about playing a game or the DLC or both. Don't do like me and wait, be better than me.
