http://www.patreon.com/jimquisition http://www.thejimquisition.com https://www.thejimporium.com Assassin’s Creed Odyssey is one damn greedy game. In addition to its half dozen special editions, its Amazon Alexa tie-in, its Totino’s promotion, and its season pass, it’s filled to the brim with microtransactions.
