Watch Adorable Kittens Murder Two Men In Assassin’s Kittens Unity

Posted by Ben Huber on Sep 28, 2014 in Fandom, Videogames


This is the internet, you know, so I’m formally obligated to provide you with any and all high-quality cat videos for your perusal. YouTube channel Mr. TVCow has put together an adorable video featuring four kittens dress up as the main characters from Assassin’s Creed Unity, leaping across tables, rocks, and two hapless guards. Then they murder them. I kind of want an outfit like that for my cat! I know this isn’t an official ad for the game, but it’s basically the best commercial I’ve seen yet for Unity, as I’ve already been bored by their typical feature trailers. And time for a low blow: do you think any of the kittens are female? Check out the cuteness below. Read more…

Fantastic Four Delayed Slightly, Assassin’s Creed Too

Posted by Ben Huber on Sep 21, 2014 in Cinema


Josh Trank’s Fantastic Four is getting a slight delay: it’ll be moving from June 19th to August 7th, 2015. Now, the movie was going to make its release date no matter what, but this is interesting because Fox is clearly moving it out of the way of the biggest June releases and instead putting it into the same slot as Guardians of the Galaxy from this year. I imagine they hope to replicate the same success. Apparently, as long as you have a good movie, people will come to see it anytime, not just during the peak summer months. Surprise! Also, in related news, Fox has taken the Assassin’s Creed film off its August 2015 release date and move it to “to be determined.” Only time will tell if this is a minor scheduling change or a sign of a film stumbling already.

Assassin’s Creed: Rogue Out On PS3, Xbox 360 This November

Posted by Bob Muir on Aug 6, 2014 in Videogames

Assassin's Creed: Rogue

Previously rumored as Comet, Ubisoft has announced Assassin’s Creed: Rogue for a PS3 and Xbox 360 release on November 11. Since Assassin’s Creed: Unity is only for current-gen consoles, Rogue will be exclusive to last-gen systems. The story follows Shay Patrick Cormac, a former Assassin who is betrayed and joins the Templars to hunt his former allies. The game is set during The Seven Years War, with locations in the northeastern US. Naval combat should also be returning, which should delight anyone who played Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag, a game that added much depth to sailing compared to its predecessor. The only downside is that this isn’t on newer systems; while Black Flag was available on both old and new systems, it had some nice bells and whistles on PS4 and Xbox One, including a higher resolution. With 2014 release trends on these newer systems, I wouldn’t be surprised to see Assassin’s Creed: Rogue: Remastered released in 2015. Read more…

First Look At Assassin’s Creed Unity

Posted by Ben Huber on Mar 24, 2014 in Videogames


Earlier, some screenshots and a logo for the next Assassin’s Creed game leaked. The game, titled Unity, features the new setting, this time in Paris during the French Revolution. According to Ubisoft, they’ve been working on this game for roughly three years, so this time it’ll be even better! Right?! Unity will also be exclusive to next gen systems, aka PC, Xbox One, and PS4. Reportedly, there will also be another Assassin’s Creed game released on 360 and PS3, but no word from Ubisoft on that one just yet. We’ll hear more at E3. Check out the teaser below! Read more…



Assassin’s Creed IV Gets Story DLC Today, ‘Freedom Cry’

Posted by Bob Muir on Dec 17, 2013 in Videogames

Freedom Cry

I’ve only had my PS4 copy of Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag for a month, so it’s easy to forget that the game was out a bit earlier for last-gen systems. In that context, I suppose it’s not too strange that it’s getting its first story-based DLC today, after some previous multiplayer content. The DLC is called Freedom Cry, and it follows first mate Adewale in his quest to free slaves 15 years after the main game’s events. There are nine missions, and as a reminder, you get them for “free” if you purchased the Season Pass. The game is getting a great reception, so more content is good, but I’m more curious if they’ll make a sequel to this game, perhaps even separate from the Assassin’s Creed series proper. Read more…

Assassin’s Creed Film Gets a 2015 Release Date

Posted by Ben Huber on May 19, 2013 in Cinema, Videogames


Remember how Ubisoft has been pushing to get an Assassin’s Creed film made? Well, it’s slowly becoming more of a reality. Last year we heard that Michael Fassbender would star and Michael Lesslie would script the affair. Then in last October 20th Century Fox and New Regency put their weight behind it, making it appear much more likely that this would happen. Thus, a date has been assigned: May 22nd, 2015. Now to simply find a director, the rest of the cast, and make the movie! Simple, right?  Read more…

Assassin’s Creed IV Trailer Shows The Life Of A Pirate

Posted by Bob Muir on Mar 26, 2013 in Videogames

Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag

That first trailer for Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag was all CG, with nary a bit of gameplay to be seen. It’s really easy to promise anything when you’re not showing real footage, so we all needed to wait for the next trailer to make a proper judgment on the upcoming game. Now that next trailer is here, and it’s looking good!

Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag Trailer Leaks Early

Posted by Ben Huber on Mar 3, 2013 in Videogames


I must say, Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag, has been one of the worst-kept secrets in a long while. Considering how well Ubisoft kept Assassin’s Creed III under wraps, I’m a bit surprised at this turn of events, but perhaps it’s time we start to figure out a different system for these early game previews. Oh well, another topic for another day. For now, we have an early leaked trailer of the game, which is a CG cinematic (no in-game footage yet), and features Blackbeard himself recommending the new Assassin as a worthy captain. Check it out below the break. Read more…

Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag Announced, No One Shocked

Posted by Ben Huber on Mar 1, 2013 in Videogames


If you’ve been on any site that reports on video games in the past week, you’ve probably heard about the leaked details of the next Assassin’s Creed game. While journalists can’t talk about their hands-on time with the game until Monday, Ubisoft officially confirmed the game today: Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag will release this year on PC, PS3, Wii U, and Xbox 360. Chances are high that it will show up on the next Xbox and PS4 as well, but Ubisoft is remaining quiet about that for now. The new game looks very pirate-y, and you’ll be playing as Edward Kenway in 1715. I wonder how much pirate ship combat we’ll get? It certainly sounds like an interesting addition to the Creed franchise, but I can’t help but wonder how soon until people burn out on it. Read more…

Is Far Cry 3 Set In The Assassin’s Creed Universe?

Posted by Bob Muir on Dec 5, 2012 in Videogames

Assassin's Creed III

As much as I love achievements, they can often ruin the surprise of secrets and easter eggs. When being told to look for something, it’s much less fun when you find it than if you just happened to stumble upon it. I haven’t gotten to play Far Cry 3 yet, but there are some subtle secrets that may tie it into the conflict between the Assassin Brotherhood and the Knights Templar in the Assassin’s Creed series.

Assassin’s Creed III Launch Trailer Hypes Up Today’s Release

Posted by Bob Muir on Oct 30, 2012 in Videogames

Assassin's Creed III

If you’re reading this on the east coast right now, not only do you still have some sort of power in the midst of Hurricane Sandy, but you get the treat of watching the launch trailer for Assassin’s Creed III on the day the game releases! This is the game fans have been waiting for since Assasssin’s Creed II in 2009, and after two more games with Ezio than we expected, the day is finally here. The setting shifts from the Italian Renaissance and Constantinople to the American Revolution, and the new lead is the half-Native American Ratonhnhaké:ton, better known as Connor Kenway. Read more…

New Trailer for Assassin’s Creed III: Liberation Reveals More

Posted by Ben Huber on Oct 20, 2012 in Videogames


I’ve been paying closer attention to Assassin’s Creed III than the previous games in the series, if only because I’m interested in the new twists on the formula the game is receiving. The spin-off game for the Playstation Vita, Assassin’s Creed III: Liberation, looks to be even more unique. The main character is an African-French assassin named Aveline de Grandpré and she’ll be fighting her way through 18th Century New Orleans. To be honest, the main thing I thought when the announcement first came out was: why isn’t this Assassin’s Creed III, not a spin-off? Granted, the Vita looks to be supporting the game perfectly fine and i’m sure it’ll be great, but making it a mainline AC game would’ve been incredibly cool. Watch the trailer below for more details on the story and gameplay. Read more…

Kill Evil George Washington In Assassin’s Creed III’s Extra Campaign DLC

Posted by Bob Muir on Oct 4, 2012 in Videogames

Evil George Washington

Fans of Assassin’s Creed are already familiar with alternate histories, considering the series features an ongoing secret war between Assassins and Templars, fighting over artifacts from an advanced earlier civilization. This fall’s Assassin’s Creed III will continue that war, resolving the storyline of modern-day assassin Desmond Miles while exploring his genetic memories of a new assassin ancestor, the Native American Connor Kenway in colonial America. Though the base game is enticing enough, one piece of future downloadable content may be too cool to pass up: killing evil George Washington. Read more…

Assassin’s Creed III Will Let You Take Part in the Boston Tea Party

Posted by Ben Huber on Sep 29, 2012 in Videogames


Ubisoft is rolling out the big guns for Assassin’s Creed III – it seems like every week they’re running a new video or trailer to promote the game. This new one is pretty neat though: a look at how you can participate in the Boston Tea Party, the historical event that led to the revolution. I love the promotional art for this as well, they did a great job emulating paintings made of historical America, but I almost wish the game looked a bit closer to that.  Oh well, the game still looks fun, and will probably still feature a ridiculously complex story and bizarre sci-fi twists at the end that leave you hanging till the next game!

Assassin’s Creed III’s AnvilNext Engine Can Support Up to 2000 NPCs

Posted by Ben Huber on Aug 5, 2012 in Videogames

That’s one of the most grandiose claims in this latest trailer for Assassin’s Creed III from Ubisoft. While most of this is just a deep-voiced announcer selling the bullet points for the game, it is quite interesting to see how the AnvilNext engine can handle both large amounts of NPCs and complex terrain. All this said, Assassin’s Creed III is the first Assassin’s Creed game I’m actually excited for.



First Assassin’s Creed III Gameplay Looks Fluid and Fast

Posted by Ben Huber on May 11, 2012 in Videogames

I’m not a huge Assassin’s Creed fan – I always had a hard time getting into the series. This trailer for Assassin’s Creed III, though, has me intrigued. The new animation engine for the game looks great as the main character, Connor, dashes about enemies and skewers them with ease. I’m also interested in escaping through buildings and ditching pursuers, as shown in the trailer. Can you do this with almost any house, or are they specific events? Oh, and fix some of those tree branches, Ubisoft: they’re much too straight.



Assassin’s Creed III Takes on the American Revolution

Posted by Ben Huber on Mar 2, 2012 in Videogames


Ubisoft has officially revealed the first details for the next installment in the Assassin’s Creed series. While we had heard reliable rumors and rumblings of the setting being the American Revolution for while, this is the first time we’ve gotten hi-res official images. It’s part of the the promotion with Game Informer as their next cover story. Ubisoft has apparently been spending a good three years working on AC3, so it looks like they’re putting their best foot forward here. Read more…
