Conan O’Brien Fights Off Boredom and Bad Accents in Assassin’s Creed: Unity


Next up on Conan O’Brien’s Clueless Gamer holiday video game hit list, following last week’s hilarious take on Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, is Assassin’s Creed: Unity. He seems bored and confused for a while, not to mention puzzled by how the supposedly French characters have awful British accents, but things turn around when he gets to start randomly assassinating civilians walking the streets.

Conan knows nothing about games by his own admission, but in this particular instance watching him play the game shows that a lot of the little issues the Assassin’s Creed games had in the previous generation are still around. Like the mind-numbingly dull early tutorial progression, the silly hay diving mechanic (and oblivious AI), and less than exciting side mission objectives. Unity looks so gorgeous, but man, after this I honestly have lost any desire to play the game.
