Do You Supplement Your Gaming Experiences With Alternative Consumption?
Last week I had a right old rant about Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag, a game that I felt was really good but a complete waste of an opportunity to explore some new and intriguing aspects of the series. Mostly, I was just really upset at the lack of fleshing out given to Haytham Kenway, the eventual son of the main character Edward Kenway, who himself walked a very fine line between the two warring factions, before eventually taking a side.
A commenting reader then explained that Haytham’s story was in fact told in the book Assassin’s Creed: Forsaken. This upset me a bit because I had not been following the series of books of late, and I could have found a few answers there. But also, why was it relegated to a book and not the games? Not that I have anything against books.

It’s good for you.
That got me to thinking, though. Sometimes I play a game and I’m so invested in it that I spend many, many hours on the internet learning everything I possibly can about it. Learning about character backstories, game mechanics, cool trivia and facts, and so on. I’m the guy who reads codex entries in games. All of them. In every game I play.
Now I want to know from you. Over and above your regular gaming habits, what else do you supplement your experience with, if at all? Do you have the iFruit app on your phone, for example, that you regularly use to train Chop? Do you read books based on games? What of comics? And so on.
