Santa Claus: Origins

[–]Dajajde 1095 points1096 points  (140 children)

Someone make Santa Simulator please, I would play the shit out of it

[–]TheChosenSwag 1203 points1204 points  (117 children)

Dude what if you had to sneak around the house as santa clause and determine if the kid is nauty or nice by the clues in their room and what not. I'd play that

[–]inshane_in_the_brain 649 points650 points  (70 children)

Wtf, you know nothing of Santa lore? Santa knows what he knows because he has elite teams of elves performing year around recon.

Tie that into the game and then let Christmas eve be the final boss.

Fuze the kids room as much as you want, no one cares.

Just please do NOT reinforce it.

No. He sees you when you're sleeping He knows when you're awake He knows when you've been bad or good So be good for goodness sake!

[–]BCProgramming 58 points59 points  (0 children)

He knows when you've been slacking

He knows when you are late

He even provides an audience

for when you masturbate

[–]skelebone 16 points17 points  (3 children)

See, he watches you when you are sleeping, but he is merely aware of you when you are awake. His monitoring is ineffective during your waking hours.

[–]whut-whut 9 points10 points  (1 child)

That means his monitoring system is triggered by biochemical differences between a sleeping and waking state.

If we can drug ourselves to the point we do not register as being awake but are also not asleep, Santa will be unable to see or know our status.

[–]Pinkie_Pie_Swear 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Man, if you wanted a hit, all you had to do was ask.

[–]slaaitch 18 points19 points  (5 children)

Or because some guy is watching you sleep. Maybe be good because of that.

[–]zaphodbeebIebrox 6 points7 points  (2 children)

If Santa knows all of this, then he knew that those reindeer were picking on Rudolph, and he didn’t do a single thing about it.

[–]KingNick 9 points10 points  (5 children)

Now give me a game that has Santa's evil-half and you're trying to stop him by deciphering these naughty/nice clues because evil Santa (I'm blanking on his name) stole the naughty/nice list in an effort to make Santa a fool and so that he could take as many children away in his bag (lore) that he wants since he decides who is naughty.

It could either be comical dark like Cuphead, or true to lore dark like The Witcher.

I'd play the fuck out of that.

[–]AjaxPlastic 6 points7 points  (0 children)

The irony is that Santa Claus was not a lie but his lore may have been exaggerated a bit. He has to figure out by doing an aura reading and checking for clues. Aura readings cost him mana and if Santa runs out of Mana he can't fly the next destination. He may have to run through the neighborhood to get to the next house. Also he has to do a B&E to get in the house if there is no chimney.

[–]Who_Decided 35 points36 points  (8 children)

Santa's Creed. You have to sneak into houses without being detected and as you go through the christmas night, you get more elaborate houses with people being awake and moving around and shit.

[–]StabbyDMcStabberson 30 points31 points  (4 children)

Get 100% completion in Santa mode to unlock Krampus mode.

[–]William_UK 12 points13 points  (2 children)

Ha! It's 2018, more like Get the Krampus DLC if you pre-order the gold edition or buy it for only £9.99

[–]champ999 5 points6 points  (2 children)

The game starts in Asia in small apartments, progresses to Europe with slightly larger homes, moves to the U.S. with larger and more varied home types, with the endgame in Hollywood with ridiculous mansions.

[–]dasonicboom 56 points57 points  (8 children)

Wow 88mph is much faster than I thought it was

[–]HunterCubone 40 points41 points  (7 children)

I never realized it was 88 actual MILES per hour when i saw the movie as a kid, even though i kept hearing it over and over again i never stopped to think that mph is not the same as kmph.

so always thought it was 'logical' the car was going kinda slow (relative to how crazy time travel is) because it was the 80's so cars did not have the potency they have today, or so was my thought process lol.

[–]GrilledCheezzy 37 points38 points  (0 children)

ITT euros are as clueless about mph as muricans are about kmph

[–]segagaga[🍰] 12 points13 points  (4 children)

If anything, 80s cars are more powerful before the 90s pollution regulations slowed and safety them.

[–]bucolucas 20 points21 points  (0 children)

Fuel injection makes up for a lot. A 30 mpg car is much more powerful now than it was back then.

[–]bmaverick24 8 points9 points  (2 children)

Sorry but the clean air act of 1970 and the OPEC oil crisis in 1973 led to the death of the muscle car and subsequent watering down of horsepower of mid-late 70's through late 80's vehicles. After the fall of the soviet union and a general downtrend in gas prices, horsepower started to really pick back up in vehicles.

[–]popegonzo 4 points5 points  (1 child)

As soon as it took off, the Back to the Future theme popped into my head. Beautiful.

Is that a bug or feature? Edit: I'm referencing a incident with Bethesda, stop wondering if I'm serious

[–]D_k3rs 828 points829 points  (5 children)

Yes

[–]ironmanmk42 33 points34 points  (3 children)

It's either a bugged feature or a featured bug

No, Bethesda isn't riddled with microtransactions they include the bugs for free.

What happened when you dismounted?

[–]carlosreptar[S] 830 points831 points  (29 children)

I rode around like that for awhile till I got bored and when I dismounted I stayed up in the air for a good two seconds before I plummeted to my death.

[–]Genlsis 256 points257 points  (22 children)

Shoulda headed for the pyramids and skipped that annoying climb.

[–]TheWorldisFullofWar 180 points181 points  (18 children)

I liked the climb. Only part of the game that resembles the old games climbing.

[–]ndjs22 209 points210 points  (6 children)

One of the things that I noticed was really different. Very little time spent trying to figure out how to get to the top of stuff in Origins.

It's nice saving time, but I just don't get that same sense of pride and accomplishmentTM

[–]l4dlouis 39 points40 points  (3 children)

I’m glad I’m not the only one, other games could be a pain sometimes but this one is easy to climb up tall shit

[–]ndjs22 58 points59 points  (2 children)

Seriously. Looks like a regular wall with no handholds anywhere? Eh, just run at it and up goes Bayek.

[–]PotassiumPomegranate 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Except those random walls where he does in fact have to run at the wall 2 feet to the left.

[–]Genlsis 106 points107 points  (3 children)

Meh, climbing those first cathedrals in AC1 was awesome because you were trying to find handholds and routes up buildings. Thai climb was essentially looking for very obvious cracks on a giant plane of stone with no interesting features beyond the cracks themselves.

[–]raffsrulz 41 points42 points  (2 children)

Sooo, you're saying you loved climbing the Santa Maria Del Fiore church in AC2?

[–]-Tasogare- 15 points16 points  (0 children)

Il Duomo was my favorite

[–]bb999 10 points11 points  (0 children)

Yes, and I was hoping the pyramid tombs would have something on a similar scale. The one place way out in the desert in the south is probably the closest.

[–]Kakarot_faps 24 points25 points  (5 children)

The lighthouse in Alexandria felt very AC2 as well. You can also do rooftops in the cities - though it looks a lot different

[–]CollinsCouldveDucked 25 points26 points  (0 children)

Seems fine to me, I assume the horses didn't look down when they went off the ledge.

Wile E. Coyote could learn a lot from them.

[–]TangoMike22 16 points17 points  (0 children)

Just like the Coyote chasing Roadrunner. You run off a cliff and gravity doesn't work until you (the character) notice it.

[–]Loui2 6 points7 points  (2 children)

Whats the possible logic for this in terms of programming? Does the game assume that gravity isn't needed because it's on "land"?

[–]AnEmuCat 17 points18 points  (1 child)

You can't just apply normal physics to the cart because its footprint is too big and the ground isn't flat so it would look weird, and it's supposed to move differently from most other objects on the game, and maybe there were problems with getting caught on things. It looks like what they did instead was have it track the ground in front of it and tilt up and down to follow ground curvature, but upon encountering an unexpected cliff the behavior just fails leaving you traveling forward at the same angle indefinitely.

[–]Siniroth 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Cliff face was probably either too steep to trigger the change, or because it was so steep it got processed as 'this is a random object in the road so ignore it' and without any other data it never picks up on your airborneness
