For those who don’t know, the folks over at Rooster Teeth and The Barenaked Ladies have worked together numerous times over the years. It all started when the BNL contacted Rooster Teeth to make special Red vs Blue PSAs during their live concerts. Then Ed Robertson, the lead singer, came on to play the strangely supportive CO of the Blue Army, Captain Butch Flowers in Red vs Blue, and then put on the spandex to become the most awesome super hero in City of Heroes, Captain Dynamic.
Now, the two forces have come together again. This time, to make a music video for the Barenaked Ladies’ newest single, “Odds Are.” And here it is!
It’s been a long time coming for Microsoft fans, but today, Microsoft and XBox finally revealed the release date for the XBox One!!!
*Drum Roll* Ladies and gentlemen! The XBox One will become available for purchase on November 11th, 2013!!
Yes, I realize this is exactly one week after the release of the Playstion 4, but this date is very special to Xbox gamers. The Xbox 360 had it’s launch exactly 8 years prior to the XBox One.
On top of the release date, more info has been released about the system on the tech side of things. Microsoft stated that the CPU has been given an upgrade. The One’s CPU will now run at 1.75 GHZ instead of the originally announced 1.6 GHZ, which is a 10% upgrade from it’s original spec.
Microsoft has also stated that the One will be able to support up to 8 controllers at one time, while the PS4 will only support 4. It also has been said that Microsoft will allow indie game developers the freedom of naming their own price points for their games.
I, for one, am excited for the XBOX One, I have been since it was first announced and revealed. Now that a launch date has been announced, I’m feeling more excited.
Til next time!
As you may remember, I did an interview with Jeremy from GAME.minder back in March. In April, he let the community know that GAME.minder was in danger of shutting down due to financial troubles.
After massive amounts of feedback from the community the guys at GAME.minder has started an Indie GoGo campaign to raise money to make GAME.minder subscription based. Go to their campaign page on Indiegogo and check out what their need are!
GAME.minder is a great service if you are a gamer. Help make sure it keeps going!
Hey guys, so we have ourselves a new trailer for next installment of Ubisofts cash cow franchise, Assassn’s Creed, Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag. Take a look.
Now, an Assassin’s Creed game wouldn’t be what it is without it giving it’s fans a little bit of a history lesson, and Black Flag seems to be no different.
I really like what they did with this trailer by giving the history of piracy, and what had happened to these British privateers that made them revert to becoming ruthless pirates and playing by their own rules.
Since the announcement trailer we knew that Blackbeard would be a major character in the game, but now we know that other notable pirates like Calico Jack and Charles Vane will play a part as well, which is pretty cool. Everybody knows who Blackbeard is, some may not know about any others like that, but that’s what the AC franchise does well with basing their games during real historical events.
What do you guys think about the AC history lesson? Cool? Not Cool?
Well, this past Sunday during the season finale of ABC’s “Once Upon A Time,” we finally got a sneak peek at the upcoming Joss Whedon created series, “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” The big buzz about this show is the fact that it takes place after the events of The Avengers, but Agent Coulson is alive, and how they were going to explain him still being alive. Well, the sneak peek didn’t explain anything. Then today, we got a full three minute trailer for the series. It still didn’t explain Coulson being alive, but we DID get an idea as to what the series will be about. Take a look for yourself.
On Monday’s episode, Tim said that he wished that they don’t turn it into a Fringe type show. According to this trailer, it seems that might be the way they are going, but I’m going to be optimistic. I think it’ll be good, it’s Joss Whedon, it’s his usual team, so I’m gonna wait until the first episode to judge.
What do you guys think about the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. trailer? Let us know!
Hey guys, got some news today concerning Assassin’s Creed.
First of all, some stuff in regards to the upcoming DLC, “The Tyranny of King Washington.”
As you may know, “The Tyranny of King Washington” takes us into an alternate reality in which George Washington, the hero of the American Revolution, has become the evil king of America, and the only one who can stop him is a Mohawk by the name of Ratonhnhake:ton. (I’m just gonna call him Connor).
Here’s the reveal trailer that was released at this past years Video Game Awards.
And this next trailer showcases the new Connor.
By the looks of it, the reality that this story takes place in will portray Connor as if he never interacted with General Washington during the war an played no part in his victory over the British. But we will see. “The Tyranny of King Washington” will be available to download February 19th.
Now, in other Assassin’s Creed news. Ubisoft has stated that the next installment in the franchise is in development and is set to release within the next fiscal year. Along with that, Ubisoft also announced that the new title will feature and new Assassin, a new setting, and a new time period.
On one side, I’m a little bummed that Connor is getting the Altair treatment and getting one exclusive game in the series. But at the same time, I’m excited to see where the franchise is going. Early rumors are that the next installment will take place in ancient China, which will be pretty cool, but we will just have to wait and see.
That’s all I’ve got for now. Laters!
What up?!?! Here’s what’s going on.
