Conan O’Brien is back with another episode of his “Clueless Gamer” series. In this latest episode, O’Brien gets to try out the highly anticipated game “Assassin’s Creed Origins” on the Xbox One.
Conan first introduces his star co-host for this week’s segment: Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers. Before the two start playing “Assassins Creed Origins,” O’Brien asks Rodgers about his recent injury. Rodgers says he was playing against the Vikings when he got tackled hard and slammed the left side of his body. It took 13 screws to repair Rodgers’s collarbone.
After this brief introduction, O’Brien asks his friend and tech expert Aaron Bleyaert to tell him what “Assassins Creed” is all about. Bleyaert says this is the 10th anniversary of the “Assassins Creed” franchise and this new game takes place all the way back in Ancient Egypt.
O’Brien and Rodgers start to fight a melee battle near the Sphinx in Egypt. All of the sudden, Conan’s character goes into “God Mode,” which basically means he can’t be harmed by any other player. Conan says his character looks like he’s imitating a chicken.
In the next scene, Conan’s character is riding in a chariot through cobblestone streets. At one point, Conan rams his horses into a brick wall and the screen suddenly freezes.
A few moments later, O’Brien and Rodgers watch a scene in which a poor farmer asks for help. Believe it or not, the farmer says that one of his friends was killed by a hippo. O’Brien and Rodgers just can’t contain themselves once the farmer mentions this.
But Conan isn’t laughing for much longer once a bunch of hippos start attacking him on the screen. Conan has to fight off three massive hippos, which, for obvious reasons, reminds him of the children’s game Hungry Hungry Hippos.
