Batman…Call me maybe?

Another remix of ‘Call me Maybe’ is doing it rounds on Youtube.. Not game related but movie this time its the Dark Knight.

I was super excited when I heard that Sonic Adventure 2 was announced for digital purchase and couldn’t wait for the release date but now it’s here along with the date for 16 years old Nights, which will both be upgrading to HD Graphics, along with Trophies/Achievements, online leaderboard and an “original mode” for Nights.

Sonic Adventure 2 will be just like the original released in 2001 you can play as the hero’s or the villains and see the story unfold through each others eyes and I know a lot of people will be excited to hear this a Chao Garden will be in the HD remake.

Nights & Sonic Adventure 2 will be available to download on PSN and Xbox Live from 2nd October for the short price of $9.99 via PSN and 800 MSP for Xbox Live.

So the final Inside Episode for Assassin’s Creed 3 has been uploaded to the net, now I refuse to watch these after the second one purely because I don’t want to see any spoilers and this final episodes has most defiantly  has spoilers. without watching this episode I know that the game will be set over 30 years of Connors life, this will allow us to see him as a youthful assassin and watch him grow into a great master assassins, just like we did with Ezio. Watching another assassin grow up gets even more excited than I already am. Episode 4 will showcase the streets of Boston and “wait for it” New York, I actually forgot it was going to be set in New York so I’m glad for this little reminder. I’m sure they will be more information in the video but I refuse to watch it but that doesn’t mean you can’t!

 

so I’ve not played Crysis 1 & 2 but after seeing this trailer I may have to purchase them in time for Crysis 3 because this trailer makes Crysis 3 look amazing! I thought it would just be another shooter but after seeing it’s set in New York City and with a vest overgrown forest, which will make it very entertaining interesting on how “you” kill your enemies. I’m sold  with Crysis 3 and will be soon purchasing 1 & 2 and later 3.

all options seem great and the fact that the next option up is only £50 more than the basic and carries on past the deluxe option it seems like a steal, good marketing skills Nintendo. which option will you be purchasing? I would suggest getting your regions deluxe option you get a lot more for that extra £50. If only I had a better job I’d be able to purchase the ZombiU edition! which sounds great, specially with the pro controller.

 

 

Kenway Jacket

Posted: September 13, 2012 by davidsugden in gamers assemble, gaming

I don’t own any gaming T-shirts or clothing to that matter, but this coat I’d so want just to wear casually.

Based on Connor’s jacket [Assassins Creed III] with any choice of colour you want, would look good on you. Part from the dint it would leave in your wallet, $320 USD to be precise. Check out the designers Tumblr HERE for more information.
