The Original Assassin Is Back!

Posted: October 31, 2012 by davidsugden in gamers assemble, gaming, Playstation 3, Xbox 360

Unfortunatly my Assassins Creed Join or Die Edition didnt arrive today. And im somewhat annoyed and tee’d off. So to cheer myself up i went youtubing and stumbled upon Freddy Wong. If you dont know who Wong is then get youtubing. He and his team make gaming videos and other cool stuff, but mostly game related. He’s even do a series of episodes about a gaming school (really worth watching – if only it was real) and thus relates to what ive posted below. A Hitman trailer or so, best thing about it is (and with his other vids) you can watch behind the scenes which ive also posted below.

so today I bought Assassin’s Creed 3 and I’ve heard from friends of friends and reviews that it will be the worst Assassin’s Creed yet, but once I played it I found it was the greatest Assassin’s Creed yet and is already close to one of my favourite of the series. Although the story is a little confusing at first but it does unravel and as I write this I’m watching a cut scene that is OMG! you will see.

so for the people who haven’t bought this game I’ve recorded the first 15 minutes for you! I know longer hate Shaun but now in fact hate Desmond’s Dad.

GTA V Date

Recently there have been leaked posters and a retailer posting a date to pre-order for and even a tweet, that has been since deleted. And whilst this has been happening Sam and Dan Houser (Rockstars Owners) have said nothing until now. It is official that GTA V will be released Spring 2013. And since Spring starts in March, we can be looking forward from anytime March onwards for the release. 

”Today, we’re proud to announce that Grand Theft Auto V is expected to launch worldwide spring 2013 for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.

Developed by series creator Rockstar North, Grand Theft Auto V takes place in a re-imagined, present-day Southern California in the largest and most thriving game-world we have ever created set in the sprawling city of Los Santos and for miles beyond – from the tops of the mountains to the depths of the ocean.
Starting next week November 5, 2012, Grand Theft Auto V will become available for pre-order everywhere and fans can expect a host of new information to become available in November.”

I’ve recently summed up what call of duty games are. My opinion, a short, very repetitive online game that has bunches of kids playing it because they have nothing better to do. Yes its war, but No its not realistic in any respect. In a way its like Halo but modern war not futuristic. And so i’ve come across a trailer that shows some unique fun ways you can have with war games, games such as Battlefield Three.

*The bit with the tank reminded me of the A-Team. I am stating that the video above does not show the impressive, realistic side of BF3 but does show you can fly planes, pilot choppers all around the map, not just to where the limits if the map are! 

EA have announced the reboot for SimCity will be with us in just under 5 months! originally meant for to be released February 2013 using the Glassbox Engine which gives the city a more realistic, alive simulated city!


SimCity will have a leader board type feature will allow to play with other mayors, players can compete across the globe for the rankings of the cleanest,dirtiest and the fittest cities online!

no explanation needed! THE CHIEF RISES

alright guys, not long now for Assassin’s Creed 3 and well if you’re a super die hard fan I’m sure you’ll have heard of Hacked History. It started a few days ago where you can find a certain image on top of an image, first it was the Apple and then the Abstergo logo hidden in a flag and the last was a Templar cross, the idea behind this was one person finds these “images” and you claim a pixel of a picture and enough people do it and Thai surprise you’ve got another picture and so on until it comes to the fourth picture which, SPOILER ALERT, SPOILER ALERT!! the fourth picture is what looks like Desmond watching some sort of wrestling match from up in the structures.

If you can’t already tell I’m so excited for Assassin’s Creed 3! be sure to check out Gamers Assemble HD on the 31st for a brand new Assassin’s Creed 3 walk through video!

UPDATE: I’ve been doing some research into this image and ive come across this tumblr site HERE which explains in full all the glory of this image above. For example; did you know there was a QR code in the middle console? or that the number are actually code? but the biggest surprise is that the hole image is covered with numbers, numbers you can only see in certain colours (R.G.B). And once you’ve dug out all the clues theres a message.

I thought for a change i’d post not just one unique Artists but several. Or more so, a team of Artists. Here we Atomhawk Design. A team of character, environments, props and more, based in Newcastle. They have worked with big names and have has there artwork used in many games. Games such as Mortal Kombat, Dead Island, Driver (San Fransico), Enslaved, Kineticimals, Wheelman and more. With companies such as Ubisoft, Sega, Th_nk, BBC, WB Games, Sony and more. They truly are a wonderful team with many awesome designs, check their website HERE.
