UPDATE: Assassin’s Creed Rogue trailer

- August 5th, 2014

UPDATE: The trailer is now online.

UPDATE: GameInformer has revealed more details from Assassin’s Creed Rogue in a post for their September cover issue.

“Rogue places fans in the shoes of a Templar, controlling former Assassin-turned-Templar Shay Patrick Cormac. Employing the popular naval gameplay from Black Flag, you navigate a ship across the frigid North Atlantic. Other locales you visit include the Appalachian River Valley and a reimagined New York. Shay is an assassin hunter who has to be even more clever to outsmart his sneaky foes. This entry takes place during the Seven Years’ War, filling in the gap between Black Flag and Assassin’s Creed III,” reads GameInformer.

Optimus Prime gets turned into original PlayStation

- July 25th, 2014

Alright Takara Tomy, you win Comic-Con today.

The Japanese toy company announced on Friday they had special designs for a new product to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the original PlayStation being created; they’re going to resell them in the form of an Optimus Prime Transformer figure.

While it won’t be an authentic PlayStation (Sony has nothing to do with the sale of the figure) it’s an absurd idea that manages to tick off each box on the cool checklist.

Game Informer is also reporting interested buyers will be able to buy a MegaDrive Megatron in Spetember. These models, however, won’t be available to the mass market through mainstream retail outlets, but will be shipping to North America.

 

 

‘Firefly’ cast reunites for ‘Firefly Online’

- July 25th, 2014

Let’s face it, Whedonites, this is the best we’re going to get.

The entire cast of Firefly, Joss Whedon’s science-fiction show that ran for only one season on Fox but created a cult like following nonetheless, announced they would be lending their voices to the official online game at San Diego Comic Con on Friday.

io9 reports that each actor will be reprising their roles from the show for the MMORPG game.

Remember when Star Wars tried to do their MMORPG sans the original actors? Kind of like that, but hopefully better.

The site also reported that fan favourite Alan Tudyk will be lending his voice talents to a variety of characters, so keep a keen ear out for hilarious accents and sad coverup attempts.

There is currently no release date for the game, so until then, just run free, space cowboys and cowgirls.

Remember, they can’t take the sky from you.
