Stumbled across this little beauty of a glitch? Egg maybe? one of the two anyway, in this glitch you can make a Turkey..yes gobble, gobble follow you and even make him wear a.. Hooded cap. This glitch is found on the Assassins Creed III game. It doesn’t do anything but worth a 5min play about with it. The video below is taken from somebodies Youtube and he’l explain how to create this madness.

GTA V!

As promised earlier on today, we’ve found the new screen shots of Rockstar’s GTA V. And boy do they look awesome. Along with the images released is a whole lot of NEW information. And of course we’re more than happy to share that with you.

The images and info are taken from GameInformer, who got early and first journalist access to Rockstar to see the ‘Game of The Year 2013?’ last September/October. The digital magazine is on sale right now.

As you can tell from the images, Los Santos looks awesome. The action looks slick and if its anything to go by, Rockstar is about to land another Big game.

NEW Information:
Rockstar claim that the new Los Santos is the size of Red Dead Redemption, San Andreas and GTA IV all combined.. Wow!!
Three main characters, the image of them are on the cover of GameInformer and was posted on here earlier today. (from left to right above):

  • Trevor, a burned out trailer trash hick with constipation and a character described as “a deranged Dennis Hopper character”. He lives in Blaine County, a backwater desert region full of bikers and meth heads (the image of the Jet Ski)
  • Michael, a retired bank robber, “living a lavish lifestyle thanks to an unconventional deal with the FBI”. He and Trevor appear to be old friends.
  • Franklin, a repo man who hasn’t known the other two that long. First appears in Vespucci (Venice) Beach. (the guy who narrates from the first trailer)

You can switch between each of the characters at anytime using a radial dial you call up on screen. Outside of missions you’ll find them going about their daily business when left unattended. We’re told you might be “surprised by the situations they find themselves in” when you check back on them. Inside missions switching offers you different options. One example gives you the choice between flying a helicopter in a chase, firing at pursuing choppers from the back or sniping from a nearby building. While each character has their own story arc playing as one can affect the others. (Kind of reminds me of the LEGO games switching out to other characters to finish a mission. I’m a bit hasty about this swapping characters but it is Rockstar, I keep my faith in them.)

Other characters:

  • Lamar – “Franklin’s Crazy friend. Described as “a lunatic version” of the more “serious and ambitious” Franklin.
  • Jimmy – Michael’s son. “A whiney pot smoking 20-year-old kid”.
  • Ron -Trevor’s best friend. “A paranoid conspiracy theorist living in the next trailer”.
  • Amanda – Michael’s wife. He’s mistreated her in the past and they hate each other but are stuck together.

Each character has unique hobbies with Dan Houser talking of, “One or two key minigame activities per character”. Trevor will have access to planes “very early on”. Activities mentioned include, yoga, Triathlons, jet skiing, base jumping, bike riding, tennis and golf.

You can insult people. At one point Trevor flips the bird and you’ll get different reactions according to who you do it.

Ammu-Nation is back, the only named “familiar businesses” so far.

Planning and pulling off multi-stage heists are a large theme. Dan Houser talks about, “investing the story and design for some of the missions into making these built-out series of heists”.

One mission see the trio rescuing a hostage, Trevor flies the helicopter, Michael abseils down a building and Franklin provides sniper support from another building. When you smash through the window to grab the victim you’re shown an icon indicating you can switch mid-mission. You can stay as Micheal to fight it out close up, or change to Franklin to snipe from a distance.

There’s no RPG-style player customisation but you can customise a character’s clothing. There’s no romance this time. Partly due to the nature of the characters, and the complexity of having three on the go at once. There is an economy. No property but “loads of other stuff”. There will be random missions (like Red Dead Redemption) where you can stumble on things like broken down cars or hitchhikers, or two parked cars and “a sea of dead bodies”. You can then, “investigate if you want”.

Multiplayer is in but not being discussed yet.

In a nut shell it seems that Rockstar are doing a good job and the game should be one of the best to date. Knowing Rockstar games they’l be a lot more surprises in store for us.

(few many) From what i’ve read the team hasn’t stated why there was a such a big delay, but we can gather from previous statements that it just didn’t work on the Playstation, until now. Theres no official release date as of yet and price, but as usual stay tuned.

Update: There will also NEW content. So maybe aswell as Dawnguard, Hearthfire or the new Dragonborn, Playstation users may get additional content.

Unknown to many that Call Of Duty: Black Ops II is actually out right now.. YES really it is! … Only if you live in Slovakia though! Apparently hard copies of the game were released to retailers and were sold for a quick profit ahead of the November 13th release. If you want proof there are videos all over Youtube. But be quick Activsion is rounding up all the videos and taking them down. The video below is of Youtuber ‘xFlandies’ who takes you through a Zombie gameplay and discusses the matter. If you dont want the game spoilt for you then look away.

GTA V Trailer 2 Update

Posted: November 6, 2012 by davidsugden in gamers assemble, gaming, PC, Playstation 3, Xbox 360

Announced earlier on, on the Official Rockstar site. Trailer 2 of Rockstars biggest franchise, GTA V will be released November 14th. Stay tuned for the trailer posting on here.

the huge community behind Assassin’s Creed 3 is incredibly with all assassin’s playing the game a day early (from pre ordering) or on the release date! although it is very buggy which is sure to be fixed some time soon.

The story is no short of amazing! if you’ve played the game and I’m sure most of you will have up to about sequence 3 there’s a huge shocker that I did not see coming, the characters in the game and brilliant from the characters you play to the ones you interact with. they give off a very good 1700 feel to the game wearing the full works of the old style fashion. SPOLIER, I don’t know how Connor can run or even move with all his gear with the tomahawk, hidden blade, rope dart and all your hurting gear.

 

The scenery is just mind blowing, the scale of the environment is the biggest you’ll ever see for Assassin’s Creed 3 if you don’t have a horse make sure you whistle for one or you’ll be spending most of the game running throughout the wilderness, while passing through the wilderness don’t forget to scale some trees! this is the simplest idea I’ve seen that’s been added to AC3 but they have perfected the climbing of trees and made it fluent and sexy at the same time! Boston is beyond beautiful and gives the same feel of a city as Rome or Florence from the previous games, while still giving it a brand new feeling to the start of a new assassin. the climbing in the city is even better than when they improved it in Revelations and to be fair I thought it wouldn’t be much different.

to get a full synch mission on your first try might be hard on Revelations or Brotherhood but you haven’t played anything as hard as AC3 mission, some of them are incredibly hard but simple to solve. I’ve got this one mission stuck in my head where I’m sure it glitches so I get detected and fail the mission, it’s safe to say it took me a fair while to even finish the mission without full synch

although like AC2 and the two side projects, AC3 offers a different way to make your money the renovation is out of the window for AC3 brings a brilliant, refreshing Estate for you to “manage” and build and evolve into a community. You can save citizen throughout the wilderness and invite them into your estate to help with their chosen craft, you can then find recipes to build new things and create weapons and gain more money in the long run.

as much as I love the assassin’s creed series, number 3 is bar far the greatest! if you haven’t played any of the series number 3 is the one to start with.

 

 

The Original Assassin Is Back!

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.
