Sup guys? Here’s what’s going on this week!
Lets start off with some Halo news shall we?
Well, part 2 of Halo 4: Forward Unto Dawn was released this past Friday! In my opinion, they should just let 343 Industries make a Halo movie already, because this miniseries has just been amazing so far. For those who don’t know, Forward Unto Dawn is a miniseries that serves as a primer for Halo 4. It follows Thomas Lasky, a young cadet in the UNSC CAMS cadet school. During that time, the Covenant invades the school, and the Master Chief shows up to help Lasky and his fellow cadets come together as a group and fend off the Covenant forces. Fast forward to Halo 4, and it’s now Captain Lasky who finds Master Chief on the UNSC Forward Unto Dawn. Anyway, here’s episode two of the miniseries!
Did anyone else see the bald guy during the fight in the mess hall? If you did, then you caught a special cameo appearance by Halo franchise director, Frank O ‘Connor! So good eyes!
Along with Forward Unto Dawn, IGN has also been releasing video walkthroughs of the various multiplayer maps in Halo 4. Here’s one for the map called, “Meltdown.”
In other news, it looks as though Domino will be making an appearance in the upcoming Marvel/High Moon game featuring everyone’s favorite Merc with a Mouth, Deadpool! For those who don’t remember, back at this years San Diego Comic Con, Marvel and High Moon announced a Deadpool game! Here’s the announcement trailer!
As some of you may know, New York Comic Con was this past weekend…and Deadpool decided to show up and have a little fun. Luckily, he had a video camera and recorded the whole thing!
Well that was fun!
On to Assassin’s Creed 3 stuff! We are less than 2 weeks away from the release of Assassin’s Creed 3, and I’m so excited!! IGN has made a behind the scenes video that showcase the wilderness and terrain that Connor will be traversing in the game.
Very cool, you can see the inspiration from Red Dead Redemption in this making of video.
Finally, we have a good look at the multiplayer aspect of AC3. Check it out!
Well, that’s all I’ve got for now! Till next time! Later!
Sup guys? Here’s what’s been going on in the video game world over the past week.
First of all, as you can see in the nifty artwork at the top of my article, the first peace of DLC to come with the season pass for Assassin’s Creed 3 will be a single player mission entitled, “The Tyranny of King Washington.” This will take place in an alternate reality in which George Washington, the hero of the American Revolution, actually decided to become king of the newly independent union. And he becomes a tyrannical king at that. Now, it’s up to our new assassin, Connor, who helped during the revolution, to bring down the evil King of the United States. I, for one, am very intrigued by the concept of this mission. As you may or may not know from US History, George Washington was offered the title of “King” after the Revolution but he declined saying that the new union would not be ruled by a king. I love how Ubisoft puts twists on actual historical events.
Anyway, in other Assassin’s Creed news, there’s been a new trailer released that shows some of Connor’s back story. Him as a child having his village destroyed, to him being trained to become an assassin. And here it is.
Very cool stuff.
Alright, on to Halo 4. Well, to be more specific, Halo 4: Forward Unto Dawn. Yes, the miniseries made it’s premier last Friday. And here is episode 1!
I’m digging this series so far. And I really enjoyed the Master Chief teaser at the beginning of the episode and I really can’t wait to see a live action Master Chief!
In other Halo 4 news, I mentioned the other week that the Flood will be making it’s return in Halo 4. When that was originally announced, all we had was a screenshot. Now we have a gameplay demo thanks to the guys at IGN! Enjoy.
Ok, now some stuff that has nothing to do with Assassin’s Creed or Halo 4. Well, it seems that the hit game Angry Birds is going to a galaxy far, far away. Yes, on November, 8th, there will be an Angry Birds Star Wars game. And here’s the teaser trailer for it.
Yep. That’s happening.
Finally, so last week was the release of Resident Evil 6. I was looking forward to this game. It looks great both visually and gameplay wise, and the story looks pretty cool too. It seems that both the stories of Leon Kennedy and Chris Redfield will intertwine as they take one both the classic T-Virus zombies we know from the first few RE games, and the crazy parasitic foes we know from recent titles. I haven’t had the chance to pick up a copy, but here’s the launch trailer for the game!
Man. I forgot how good that trailer is. I really wanna pick up a copy now.
Anyway, that’s it for now! Check back next time for more stuff!
Sup guys? Here’s what we got this week in video game land!
First, another trailer for Assassin’s Creed 3. This time, we get a little history lesson about the famous Boston Tea Party. And apparently, our protagonist, Connor, plays part in the first form of defiance from the Colonist to King George in dumping the outrageously taxed tea into the Boston Harbor. Check out the trailer below.
In other Assassin’s Creed news, Ubisoft has announced that they will be releasing an Assassin’s Creed: Ezio Trilogy. Which is exactly what it sounds like. There will be a collection of AC games that will be the Ezio Trilogy, so it will include: Assassin’s Creed 2, Brotherhood, and Revelations. The only thing is, it’s only going to be released for the Playstation 3. I’m a little irritated by that. I already own the Ezio Trilogy myself, but for those who don’t and are 360 gamers like myself, that’s a bit of a jip. But what can you do? The Ezio Trilogy will be released for the PS3 on November 13th.
BioWare has also jumped on board with releasing collections of their successful franchises. They have just announced that they will be releasing a Mass Effect Collection. Which will include Mass Effect 1, 2, and 3. This will mark the first time that the first Mass Effect being available to play on the PC and PS3. But while the PC and 360 versions of the trilogy will be released on November 6th, the PS3 versions has yet to be given a release date.
Finally, in Halo 4 news, the Flood will be making a return in Halo 4. As of right now, not in the campaign, but in a multiplayer type. There will be a new multiplayer game in Halo 4 simply called, The Flood. So we will see what happens there. That’s pretty exciting if you ask me.
Well, thats all for now. See ya next time!
Hey guys, there may be some cool stuff with games out there. But lets face it. None of that matters with Assassin’s Creed 3 and Halo 4 on the way. There’s no need to even look at other games.
With that said, Borderlands 2 is out. I know last week I said that it came out….but I was wrong. SO SUE ME!! Well, Borderlands 2 is in fact out today. For those of you who enjoyed the first installment, go out and get the sequel.
Now, on to cooler video game news. Like I said on this weeks episode, the Wii U has a release date and price points. Listen to this weeks episode to find all of that out.

Now, last week I showed you guys a making of Halo 4 ViDoc that featured the inside of Master Chief and Cortana. This week I give you the next installment of The Making of Halo 4. Return of the Forerunners. This episode goes inside the creation and logic behind the new enemy types in Halo 4, The Prometheons. Check it!
So there you have it for this week. Check back next week for more news!
Sup guys? Got a little bit of news for you this week. So lets get to it!
Well, first of all, last week I forgot to post a very cool Making of Halo 4 video that was released on the Halo Waypoint app on the XBox Live Marketplace. So here it is!
Oh man! Did anyone else get goosebumps watching that? It’s so cool seeing the people behind the voices like Jenn Taylor and Steve Downes. And seeing the motion capture actors for the cinematics. I so cannot wait for Halo 4!
Well, in other news. Another game I’m very much looking forward is Assassin’s Creed 3! Well, with a preorder from Gamestop, you will get for free a new single player mission called, “The Lost Mayan Ruins” in which Conner explores Mexico in search of Captain Kidd’s prized weapon, The Saw Toothed Sword. And heres a little teaser trailer for it.
Finally, Borderlands 2 comes out today! If you were a fan of the first one, go out and get the sequel.
Well, that does it for this week. See ya next time!
What’s up guys? I know it’s been a while. Did you miss me? No? Damn.
Anyway. Here’s a new trailer for Assassin’s Creed 3 that features the new Naval warfare aspect of the game. This is the first time in the AC franchise that you will be able to take part in this type of battle. And with Ubisoft developing it’s new AnvilNext game engine specifically for Assassin’s Creed 3, it’s looking to be a pretty cool new addition to what looks to be an incredible game. Check it out for yourself!
Got a new trailer for Assassin’s Creed 3 for ya! This new trailer shows off and explains Ubisoft’s new game engine they built specifically for Assassin’s Creed 3 and Conner himself. A game engine they are calling, “AnvilNext.” Check it out for yourselves!
Pretty cool stuff. 2,000 characters on screen at one time. 1,000 movements meant specifically for Conner. And we got to see Conner without his hood on. The AnvilNext game engine is looking to be pretty damn cool. What do you guys think? Let me know!
There really aren’t words to describe this gameplay demo, except that it’s awesome!
Here ya go.
Boston looks really cool. Hats off to the Ubisoft guys for making the city look like it did back in the Colonial times. And the more gameplay we see of AC3, the more excited I’m getting about this game. And its really cool seeing Conner in a crowd setting as compared to the outdoor and wilderness settings that we’ve seen so far.
Assassin’s Creed comes out October 30, 2012. And I can’t wait!
Here it is guys, the first full gameplay trailer for Assassins Creed 3!!
Aw man is this game looking better and better! The entire trailer was done with actual gameplay footage. So when you see Connor killing multiple enemies in a row while on the move, you better believe that’s how it’s gonna be in October when the game comes out. The action looks incredible. I personally can’t wait to use that tomahawk myself. And by what the dialogue suggests, especially when Connor says, “Part of me wants to fight and repel, all outsiders.” It seems as though Connor may not just be targeting British soldiers.
You have to realize, Connor IS and Assassin. He’s going to be going after the Templars, whether they be on the side of the British, or on the side of the Revolutionaries. So this probably just won’t be an American story.
Nether the less. Assassins Creed 3 is looking to be one of the biggest releases for 2012.
What did you guys think of the gameplay trailer? Good? Bad? Let me know!
