In case you missed it, Ubisoft made the official Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag announcement earlier today. Naturally, a fresh batch of screenshots have made their way online. The new entry in the series takes us to the Caribbean during the 18th Century, and puts us in the shoes of the swashbuckling grandfather of ACIII’s protagonist, Connor. The Best part? It looks really pretty!
For PlayStation 3 users, particularly the Skyrim playing kind, the last month has been a much needed opportunity to play catch up. Three weeks meant three expansions, each with the potential to be more epic than their delays! With the release of Dawnguard, publisher Bethesda Softworks has finally brought balance to the DLC-Force, but is the actual content any good?
Square-Enix, Eidos Montreal, and their cleverly situated hashtag have begun the final push towards Tomb Raider release day. A new trailer has landed and it attempts to elicit an emotional response to Lara and her, shall we say, transformative experience. Also, I think they want you to Tweet… Is there a survivor in you?
Hearthfire, the second serving of DLC for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, has landed on the PlayStation Network. Unlike the other two expansions on the market, this package takes a break from adding any new story or side-quests in lieu of a new home-building mechanic that may not be what everyone expected. Is it worth your time? Read on and find out.
We just uploaded a bunch of new screencaps from Remember Me, the new, ambitious-looking, memory-stealing IP from Capcom and developer Dontnod Entertainment. These latest glimpses into Neo-Paris paint a gorgeous yet unsettling picture of a future where Personal memories can be digitized, bought, sold, traded… or stolen! In 2084, nothing is sacred.
The last few months have been tough for Skyrim fans with a PS3 bent. We’ve had to sit idly by as our Xbox loving friends would go on about how awesome the new expansions are, or how cool the dragon-riding is, all with little-to-no regard for our crushed gamer-pride… or spoilers for that matter. Yes, it has been tough, but the clouds have finally parted, and the nine have blessed us with the first PS3-ready DLC. Dragonborn is here!
After a disgustingly successful Kickstarter campaign, a bunch of hardware tweaks, some healthy third party support, and a whole lot of media buzz, we now have a solid release window for the little Android-based console that could. What’s more, we also have a list of retailers that will carry the device, as well as pricing and pre-order info. Check it out.
Game Informer’s February edition has hit the web early, and the game adorning it’s cover is none other than the long-rumored, highly anticipated sequel, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. The series was a huge hit for years on PC, and made waves after an enhanced edition of The Witcher 2 was released on Xbox 360. In a desolate marketplace all but devoid of truly great RPGs, this is very good news indeed!
Some entrepreneurial inventors over at the Hasso-Plattner Institute in Germany have come up with yet another technological advance we never knew we needed. The GravitySpace smart floor monitors your weight, and beams a mirror image of yourself back, allowing for all manner of shenanigans. This new approach to indoor environment tracking is kinda creepy… but also kinda cool. See for yourself.
If you’ve ever worried about growing capabilities of unmanned aerial vehicles, then this story may not please you. DARPA, the advanced research and development wing of the U.S. Dept. of Defense has revealed the frighteningly powerful ARGUS-IS , or Autonomous Real-Time Ground Ubiquitous Surveillance Imaging System. The eye in the sky just got a nice pair of expensive glasses, folks.
