Assassins Creed III

Hey guys I apologize for the time away. I had a camping trip with the family that I needed to attend along with a hectic few weeks getting ready for my next year at college. I promise I’ll be back to posting on a regular basis.

So without further ado… a preview for the newest addition to the epic Assassins Creed franchise, Assassins Creed III.

The last game the Assassins Creed franchise concluded the story of the Italian pretty boy Ezio Auditore. The story of Ezio was a trilogy starting with Assassins Creed II, released in November of 2009, continued to Assassins Creed Brotherhood, released in November of 2010, and finally wrapping up with Assassins Creed Revelation in November of 2011. Assassins Creed III has been in work since the release of Assassins Creed II, way back in 2009. The size of the game is enormous and the game is far more ambitious than any of the previous titles.

The game takes place in the United States during the American Revolution. You are a half Native American half British assassin known as Connor. The main areas of battle are on the frontier, in Boston, and in New York. The game is much more of an RPG compared to the previous titles. Made possible by the powerful engine.

All the hype points to this being the biggest leap of the franchise. We’ll have to wait to see if the story-line and character development prove to be up to par, but the game play and graphics are easily the best of the series. If you are a fan of the series its a no-brainer to go get the game, I’d recommend reserving a copy. If you haven’t played any of the previous installments or are skeptical due to flaws in the preceding titles I’d still make it a priority keep an eye on it and get a general feeling of the game after it is released.

What do you guys think? Are you going to get this game? How do you feel about the previous Assassin Creed Games?

Wild, crazy, fun!

Borderlands 2 is one of the most anticipated games coming out this fall. The first installment in the series was known for its wild antics, crazy humor, and all-around fun action. The question is can Borderlands 2 live up to this and exceed it?

So far indications are yes it will live up to the title and will most definitely exceed the wild, crazy, fun of Borderlands. The success of the previous games allowed the makers to go after ambitious goals and have a larger budget. The game is still a first person shooter but now has more RPG elements weaved into the game. There are far more side-quests, more enemies, and more ways to customize your appearance and guns. The game still takes place on the desolate wasteland of Pandora and many of the same enemies reappear in the sequel.

For those of you who have not played the first game of the series, Borderlands was a first-person shooter with a few RPG elements. The graphics are more cartoon-ish than most games and the story isn’t terribly deep. Yet the humor, great action, and all-around bad-ass feeling of the game made it one of the most surprising titles a few years back. It is extremely well made and anyone who plays it will have a ton of fun.

This game will no doubt be a best-seller this year. The first game was so good I will undoubtedly be buying the second.

How about you, will you buying Borderlands 2? What’d you think of Borderlands?
