Here’s some interesting news for fans of the Assassin’s Creed franchise. It looks like some promotional artwork was leaked by a Best Buy employee and it appears to reveal that the new game will be set during the American Revolution.
All assassins worth their salt know that jumping into a cart full of hay is the quickest way to descend from a great height. That gimmick won’t fly (or land safely) in the world of the Witcher though, as revealed by this Easter Egg in The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings:
Assassins Creed fan and YouTube user Angelegend made a DIY Assassins Creed arm blade, just like the one in the game. It was created using some simple components, like a drawer slide bracket, along with some other modifications.
Shogun Bros. has just announced a new version of their Chameleon X-1 Mouse. One that is Assassins Creed Revelations themed. It’s probably one of the coolest looking mice I’ve ever seen, despite the fact that it resembles some kind of trendy sneaker.
Thanks to my Parakeet Vision, I spotted these awesome officially licensed hoodies from Insert Coin. Inspired by Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood, the hoodies bear the name of the hometown of the Auditore family, the insignia of the Assassin Order and the numbers 14 and 99, indicating the year that the town became the Order’s headquarters.
I’d like to think that I’m not as cynical or heavily nostalgic when it comes to video games, but sometimes I do miss the simpler times of gaming. Back in those days I didn’t have to download a patch every week, and then after downloading that I have to download another patch for the game I’m about to play, even if it was released just a week ago (I’m looking at you, NBA 2K12!).
Chris Myles has been wowing us for quite some time now with his Portal-related props and toys. If you’re a fan of his work, now’s your chance to literally pay him back – and get cool stuff in return – by copping his custom made 3D-printed rings.
I like Assassin’s Creed and I’ve played it a bit, but I also like retro games. Maybe I would have liked it better if Assassin’s Creed were an 8-bit game on the NES. Check out this sweet animation that was created to showcase just this.
Tired of playing as the nameless Prince in the Prince of Persia games? If you’re going to get the upcoming PoP: The Forgotten Sands, you can ditch him for Ezio, or at least make the Prince look like the Italian assassin from Ubisoft’s other parkourish franchise Assassin’s Creed.
It seems that the Snakes of MGS: Peace Walker are taking a cue from their Assassin predecessors.
Top video game producers Hideo Kojima and Patrice Desilets contracted hay fever while making this trailer for the upcoming PSP game, so you better watch this until the very end.
Ubisoft got a taste of Murphy’s Law as the company’s newly implemented Internet-dependent anti-piracy measure has left owners of the PC version of Assassin’s Creed II unable to log in and thus play their game. It was bound to happen, but I didn’t think it would happen almost right from the get go.
Assassin’s Creed II has been out for a while, but Ubisoft has announced two new DLCs that will enable you to finally finish the game.
Does this mean that Ubisoft sold an incomplete game to gamers everywhere?
I didn’t much care for Assassin’s Creed, but I will concede that the assassin’s retractable dagger is a pretty badass weapon. And in the most literal sense of “badass.” So you would think news of a real-life assassin’s dagger being manufactured would elicit a sheepish smirk from me.
