Assassin’s Creed: Syndicate Sure Looks Pretty

I’m going to let you in on a secret. I don’t play open world games for the amazing stories or any of that. Usually I’ll just plunk myself down and wander the landscape in free play. After all, many artists lovingly crafted a world to be explored, who am I to deny their vision? So I wander, taking in all that is around me. Oculus Rift is going to feel like Sword Art Online to me. Anyway!...

Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag Trailer

I felt that the naval battles of Assassin’s Creed III is one of the best new features that has come to the franchise, which you can read my review here. Granted I don’t want Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag to be all about those naval battles, I do want to see a good “pirate” game so to speak. In Black Flag you will take on the role of Edward Kenway, who is the father of Haytham Kenway who...

The next entry the annual Assassin’s Creed franchise will be a full fledged numbered sequel. Unveiled on Ubisoft’s facebook page the game is titled Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag and the reveal image conveys very clearly that the game will revolve around piracy in some fashion. It is unknown if the game will star AC III’s Connor or if the game features a new protagonist, but the protagonist’s clothing is awfully similar to Connor’s garb. Also given...

New Naval Warfare Trailer For Assassin’s Creed III Sets Sail

It seems like just yesterday I was expressing my excitement over AC3’s naval warfare and today we already have a new trailer for the seafaring combat! As Connor, you’ll lead your crew through rough waters and into battle against enemy ships. This interests me most of all being a fan of Skies of Arcadia which while AC3 isn’t an RPG, the naval combat tactics of coming alongside your enemy and releasing a barrage of cannon fire ring true. Playing...

Video Game Music: Vol 2

To view Volume 1, please click here! As I sit here to write the next song, I am reminded of a song that took my breath away playing the original Assassin’s Creed. City of Jerusalem was the first song that I took notice to in Jesper Kyd’s great soundtrack that took the video game world by storm. The reason I choose City of Jerusalem for this week is because it does something new and bold that video...

Assassins Creed 3 Delayed on PC?

It’s become almost tradition for the PC releases of Assassin’s Creed titles to arrive a bit later than their console counterparts, although Ubisoft has always insisted this is never their goal. Last year’s Assassin’s Creed: Revelations saw the closest release between PC and consoles for the series yet, although PC gamers still had to wait two weeks longer to experience the conclusion to Ezio’s story. According to Eurogamer, the PC version of Assassin’s Creed 3 has been...
