4 Reasons to Pre-Order Assassin’s Creed Odyssey & 3 Reasons to Wait

4 Reasons to Pre-Order Assassin’s Creed Odyssey & 3 Reasons to Wait is a post by Adam Mills from Gotta Be Mobile.

The Assassin’s Creed Odyssey release date is confirmed for October and pre-orders are live for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Windows PC. While there are some great reasons to pre-order a copy, there are also some reasons why you might want to hold off.

The Assassin’s Creed series is leaving the pyramids and Egypt for a jaunt in Ancient Greece. Assassin’s Creed Odyssey is Ubisoft’s latest entry into the long-running series, the eleventh main installment, and it will take over for Assassin’s Creed Origins as the company’s flagship title.

The game puts you into the shoes of a Spartan hero, female or male, as you try and navigate a brutal war between Sparta and Athens.

Like previous games, you’ll explore a vast open world that includes quests and familiar faces. The demo included the well-known Socrates and you’ll encounter plenty of other famous names along the way.

Unlike previous games, there will be dialogue options that will alter your story. Your decisions will have an impact on the game’s storyline and outcome. It also includes massive 150 vs. 150 battles between Athens and Sparta and naval combat on the Aegean Sea.

Fortunately, you won’t have to wait too much longer to get your hands on the game.

The Assassin’s Creed Odyssey release date is confirmed for October 5th on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Windows PC. And with the release just a few weeks away, some of you might be trying to decide whether to pre-order the game or not. The game is on sale at retailers like Amazon, Best Buy, and GameStop.

In this guide we’ll take you through the best reasons to pre-order and some reasons why you might want to wait.

Pre-Order If You Want to Play ASAP>1 / 7Pre-Order If You Want to Play ASAP

If you love the Assassin's Creed series, loved what you saw at E3, are excited about a trip to Ancient Greece, and want to start playing the game as soon as possible, you'll want to put in a pre-order.

One of the Assassin's Creed Odyssey pre-order perks is an early release date though it looks like it only comes with the expensive bundles. 

If you pre-order the standard edition or the Deluxe Edition, you'll get your copy of the game on October 5th. 

However, if you pre-order the Gold Edition ($100), Ultimate Edition ($120), Spartan Collector Edition ($160), or the Pantheon Collector Edition ($220), you'll get the game a few days earlier on October 2nd. 

If you're rabid fan of the series, want some additional items/collectibles, and have some extra money to burn, think about pre-ordering one of these versions.

2018 Mazda 6 Review

2018 Mazda 6 Review is a post by Josh Smith from Gotta Be Mobile.

The 2018 Mazda 6 is a great sports sedan that is fun to drive, packed with tech including Apple CarPlay and a good deal of safety features that round out the experience.

In 2018 the Mazda 6 stands out even among strong competition from the Toyota Camry, Ford Fusion, Honda Accord and Kia Optima.

The Mazda 6 is roomier than the Mazda 3, and it’s a great fit for many drivers who are still looking for a car. If you need more room and are looking at Mazda, check out the CX-5 or CX-9.

The 2018 Mazda 6 is an excellent sporty mid-size sedan. The 2018 Mazda 6 is an excellent sporty mid-size sedan. Is the 2018 Mazda 6 a Good Car?

The 2018 Mazda 6 is an excellent mid-size sedan. Mazda delivers a fun driving experience with great handling and the upgraded 2.5L engine.

With the addition of Apple CarPlay and upgraded features Mazda rounds out the offering and addresses one of the main complaints we’ve had with earlier models.

With the new Signature trim interior upgrades and a better overall package the 2018 Mazda 6 is a top pick for car shoppers in 2018.

2018 Mazda 6 ReviewThe 2018 Mazda 6 is a fun and practical mid-size sedan that looks great inside and out, handles great comes with more power for 2018 and finally adds CarPlay. What You'll LoveGreat handling and fun to driveBold new style with a great interior optionApple CarPlay & Android Auto support Great safety ratings and featuresWhat Needs WorkNo all wheel drive optionNo hybrid optionCan't use touch screen when driving Learn More at Mazda What’s New for 2018?

The 2018 Mazda 6 is completely upgraded for 2018 with new looks, an optional turbocharged 2.5l engine that comes over from the Mazda CX-9 and upgraded infotainment and safety features.

This year the larger infotainment screen adds in support for Apple CarPlay. The adaptive cruise system supports a complete stop and then can resume up to full speed.

Mazda’s new Signature trim level upgrades the interior with soft touch materials including brown leather trimmed seats and Japanese Sen wood interior trim details.

2018 Mazda 6 Interior & Design The Signature trim interior looks more like an entry level luxury car. The Signature trim interior looks more like an entry level luxury car.

The interior of the Mazda 6 varies based on the trim level. Across the product line you’ll find a well laid out interior with a driver centric front seat.

With the Signature trim level, the Mazda 6 interior steps up the game dramatically. The seats are very comfortable with a new wider base and they are wrapped in Nappa leather on the Signature trim level. Throughout the cabin there are loads of soft touch materials.

The back seat offers enough legroom and headroom for most adults as long as the driver isn’t super tall. I like the fold down arm rest in the back that hides two USB ports that will keep passengers or kids charged up without stringing cables down to the center console.

The Mazda 6 exterior is sporty and stylish. The Mazda 6 exterior is sporty and stylish.

While everything may not be clad in leather or Alcantara like on luxury sedans, the Mazda 6 interior is clearly better than the sum of its parts, allowing it to punch above its weight class. With beautiful accents, the Japanese Sen wood inlay and very good overall placement

Outside, the Mazda 6’s new looks are sporty and sharp-looking. This design hits all the right notes to keep things sporty, yet refined and ultimately it’s a winning combination.

2018 Mazda 6 CarPlay Android Auto, Tech

After holding out for years, Mazda finally delivers a major upgrade to the infotainment system. The 2018 Mazda 6 includes a larger touch screen and support for Android Auto and Apple CarPlay.

This works with the existing Mazda Connect system, so it’s a little different to use while you are driving than in other cars. Mazda disables the touch screen while the car is in motion, so you need to use your voice or the joystick/dial on the center console. It takes a little getting used to, but it’s an upgrade I loved using on the Mazda 6. If we can get this on the Mazda MX-5 Miata I’m going to need to have a conversation with my wife about adding on to our garage.

Mazda is adding in CarPlay and Android support, so if you picked up an early model and don’t have it, you can bring it into the dealer for a free upgrade. If you are shopping for a new one, make sure it’s already installed.

Connecting a phone to listen to music or take calls is as easy as plugging into use CarPlay or Android Auto, or just pairing with Bluetooth. Call quality is good, and you can use voice controls to easily start a call.

The stereo is above average, delivering good sound for most music and audiobooks, but I’d love a little more oomph on the low-end.

2018 Mazda 6 Safety

The Mazda 6 comes with a 5-star overall safety rating and individual scores of 4 or 5-stars. In addition to safe design, you get a nice mix of safety and convenience features that actively help you as you drive.

Standard safety features include Blind Spot Monitoring with Rear Cross Traffic Alert and Smart City Brake Support. These help you avoid accidents when switching lanes, backing up, and by automatically braking the car and reducing engine power if an obstacle is in front of you and you don’t show signs of stopping at 20 mph or less.

On the Touring and up, you get Lane Departure Warning, Lane Keep Assist and Mazda Radar Cruise Control with Stop and Go. The lane keeping features do a good job of warning you, and ultimately helping keep you in your lane so you don’t go into traffic or off the road. This isn’t semi-autonomous driving, but it is an aid that will help keep you safe.

Tha Radar Cruise control is very good on the Mazda 6, and with Stop & Go support you can come to a full stop using the system and resume your speed without using the brake or the gas. On any car this system takes some getting used to, but once you do it makes commutes and long trips with traffic much more enjoyable.

2018 Mazda 6 Driving & Performance Mazda offers a great ride and excellent handling that combine to make this a fun car to drive. Mazda offers a great ride and excellent handling that combine to make this a fun car to drive.

The Mazda 6 is a car for people who love to drive, but need something practical. Yes, this is a mid-size sedan, but it’s more like a sports sedan with the available 250 horsepower 2.5T engine.

Mazda knows how to tune both the engine and the driving dynamics of the Mazda 6 to deliver a fun, sporty ride. This comes from the G-Vectoring Control and the turbocharged engine.

In the Mazda 6 you’ll find yourself seeking out the scenic route on your trip more often. Yes, this seems like a cliché, but the handling is perfectly suited to turning off when you see a curvy roads ahead sign and enjoying the drive.

Sport mode delivers a more engaging drive with slight tweaks to shift points to give you more access to power. There is a little more engine noise when you’re in sport mode.

Ride quality is also good, and while road noise is evident, it’s not at a level that impedes conversation or cuts into your road trip in a meaningful way.

The 2018 Mazda 6 Signature with the 2.5L Turbocharged is rated at 26 MPG combined, with 23 MPG city and 31 MPG highway. That’s in line with what I observed during my week with the car.

You Need These 10 Must Have Car Features: Find Out WhySmart Cruise Control>1 / 10Smart Cruise Control

Do you hate constantly adjusting your cruise control, or giving up on cruise control because of traffic or due to a driver in front of you who keeps changing speed? You need a smart cruise control system.

Smart cruise control goes by many different names. You may see it listed as Radar Cruise, Adaptive Cruise or Intelligent Cruise control. Whatever it is called, it will allow you to set your cruise control and then stay with the flow of slower traffic.

Here's why we love it and why you need it. You get on the highway and set the cruise at 76 miles per hour. You also set the distance you want kept between you and the car in front of you. There are typically three or four settings so you can be close or keep a lot of space. Now you simply steer and your car will go 76 mile per hour when traffic allows it or there is no one in front of you. When someone is in front of you going 73 mph, the car automatically slows down to keep you the distance you choose from that car. This is indispensable in traffic and on long road trips. 

Not all smart cruise control systems are the same. Some of work at all speeds, while others only work above a specific limit. Some systems can bring you to a complete stop in traffic and then restart without you needing to touch a pedal. 

You can find adaptive cruise control on cars as cheap as $18,500 like the Toyota Corolla, and as an option on many cars below $30,000. Even on pricier cars you may need a higher trim level or special package to get this feature.
