A Wish Come True!

Just a few weeks before the very first episode of this podcast was released, I had found myself diving back into the AC games and falling in love with them all over again. I listen to a number of other lore casts and I couldn’t believe there was nothing out in the world that covered AC lore properly. Then as if my wish had been granted, I discovered the Cups! Bringing forth bits of the lore and history that bring these stories alive, Shelby and Austin have my many thanks and full support. Much love to you guys! The AC games are some of the best games I have ever played. (P.s. AC IV Black Flag is hands down the best in the series)

Even the Isu would learn from this podcast

The Cups have done it again! Delving into the memories of the ancestors to bring an amazing show. As a long time fan of Assassins Creed I love it when my favorite game is talked about and this podcast does not disappoint. Austin and Shelby bring their unique take on the lore, making it easy and enjoyable to listen to. Next time you jump into an Animus put this show on to listen to!
