I think this means we won the cold war
Metro Last light is a story heavy dark survival horror action FPS set in the post-apocalyptic ruins of Moscow. In the live action trailer above we watch as the Russian citizens scramble in terror at their upcoming demise, meanwhile those fortunate enough to be allowed into the Moscow Metro (which apparently serves as a bomb shelter) will eventually have to face radiation mutants, and a pig headed civil war for power….ya Metro Last Light is sorta depressing.
And that dark depressing tone even carries through to the gameplay, which you can view after the cut.
Looks like this years Call Of Duty is going to be a direct sequel to 2010′s Black Ops. A retail source forwarded the image above of a poster they received to Kotaku. There’s some notable additional details to this story:
- This could of course be a hoax
- The date on the poster would be a reveal date, as Call Of Duty titles release in the October-December time frame to take advantage of the Holiday rush
- In February a French video game site found themselves temporarily banned from Activision events after they reported that 2012′s Call Of Duty would be a Black Ops sequel.
- An Amazon leak earlier in the year indicated this years Call Of Duty would be a Black Ops sequel
- In 2010′s Black ops a debriefing was the framing narrative used to tell the player about a massive secret conspiracy. This poster is likely referencing that.
Assassins Creed: Revelations currently holds the record for highest pre-orders of any Ubisoft game in the companies 26 year history, and Assassins Creed 3 is set to easily surpass that.
Assassins Creed 3 has been available to pre-order since it was officially revealed, and in it’s first 3 weeks it has outsold Assassins Creed Revelations pre-orders in the same time-span by 10-1. Ubisoft is expecting Assassins Creed 3 to surpass Revelations total life pre-order sales by E3 which takes place June 5th-7th. Bare in mind Assassins Creed 3 is releasing October 30th, so don’t be surprised if Assassins Creed 3 eventually breaks a couple other Ubisoft sales records.
All of this is impressive, but it doesn’t catch me off guard. Gamers have grown tired of the sloppy 1 year developed post-Assassins Creed 2 titles in the franchise. Everyone’s been aching for something new, and the American Revolution is sure to take Assassins Creeds mainstream appeal to a whole new level, plus I saw a fucking TV COMMERCIAL for Assassins Creed 3 already. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a game advertised 8 months before it’s actual release, hell Twisted Metal didn’t even get a TV Ad.

According to Eurogamer a product listing for Assassin’s Creed 3 was live, but then promptly taken down. Why was it taken down in a rush? Well it might of accidentally confirmed 2-4 player online co-op in Assassin’s Creed 3, a game which has just recently been announced (with little emphasis placed on multiplayer thus far)
Of course it could of easily been a mistake. The listing has gone back up on Xbox.com where the only mention of multiplayer is the expected (post Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood) 2-8 player online multiplayer.
If you’d like to see the original listing which mentions 2-4 player online co-op, then continue reading.
Yup the first Assassins Creed 3 trailer is here, and it comes packed with all the cinematic assassin action you expect from the franchise with a slight twist in the form of new weapons to fit the American Revolutionary War setting.
You know to be honest I originally thought the Native American aspect of Assassins Creed 3′s protagonist would be emphasized too much in a somewhat off-putting way (if you’re racist), but luckily the assassin cloak we’ve come to love though customized for the time still obscures the character enough for you to identify him first and foremost as an assassin.
This shouldn’t of been a concern because Assassins Creeds character model has always done a good job of under emphasizing the characters body, while making any heritage more prevalent throughout the costume then anything. After all we’ve never thought of Ezio as a angry, loud Italian, and so I expect we’ll never end up viewing Assassins Creed 3′s protagonist as a drunk jobless Native American.
