SFX guru and director Mike Diva has shown a love for gaming on his YouTube channel a number of times. Last year Mike put out an awesome homage to both Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon embracing pure 1980’s goodness just like the game and then to Mortal Kombat with a killer fight scene and phenomenal Easter egg joke inserted in there too. You can check out both on his YouTube channel.
Today, Mike released his latest video in anticipation of Ubisoft’s upcoming release Watch Dogs which comes out on Tuesday. In it, he explores the game’s tech vibe as well as the upcoming Season Pass DLC which will include cyborgs. And if there is one thing Mike Diva knows how to do, it’s bash cyborgs (he proved that last year in the Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon video after all). Since it is a short, we won’t ruin it for you but it does have a distinct Diva flair to it
It’s difficult to put into words just how great this trailer is. However, as we get paid by the word around here, we should at least give it a try.
Well, to be sure, it’s amazing. So many great bits and so much pop culture and old-school sci-fi/action b-movie nostalgia all rolled into a slick package. And hey, the game, a stand-along expansion to Far Cry 3 itself, looks pretty fun too. It even stars famous sci-fi actor Michael Biehn, which is pretty cool.
If you haven’t seen this trailer for Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon, you should. In fact, click through immedietly and watch it. You won’t be sorry. Once you watch it, be sure to buy the game too. We need to support things like this.
Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon is available now for PS 3 via the Playstation Network and XBox 360 via XBox Live Arcade.
Last week we reported about the leaked image attached to the title Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag. This new Assassin’s Creed game rumor lined up with previous statements about a new lead character and a new locale as well. Yesterday, Ubisoft revealed these rumors to be true with an official trailer revealing the game as well as a character trailer showing off the new protagonist Edward Kenway.
The first trailer starts off with Blackbeard (coincidentally, Blackbeard was who I researched to give the possible time frame that the events of the game will take place when looking at famous pirates in history). This means that the game has to take place before the events of Assassin’s Creed III since Blackbeard was dead by 1718. This could be an indicator that Desmond Miles may in fact not be the modern day protagonist for the game as well as Desmond’s memories took place chronologically.
Earlier this month, Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot revealed that there would indeed be a new Assassin’s Creed title released in fiscal 2014 (April 1, 2013 to March 31, 2014) from the publishing giant. He also noted that it would be taking place in a new location with a new lead character as well.
After the ending of Assassin’s Creed III, many were speculating if this only meant Connor being replaced or if the modern day Desmond would be on the chopping block as well. Well, speculate no longer it seems.
Yesterday gaming news site Kotaku reported a leaked marketing image and the name Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag. The image shows a hooded assassin character holding a sword in one hand and pistol in another while surrounded by pirates. This would fit right in with Yves’s statement about a new hero and location.
The other day when looking back at the proud leaders of this great nation, I opted to shy away from the fantastic portrayal of General turned King George Washington in the alternate history DLC of Assassin’s Creed. But after showing proper respect two whole days ago and the DLC releasing, it doesn’t seem right to not share the launch trailer for “Tyranny of King Washington: The Infamy” DLC which hit the digital marketplace yesterday.
In this trailer, the question is posed about what would have actually happened to General Washington had he not stepped down as President at the end of the Revolutionary War. In this alternate timeline, Washington is corrupted by his power and declares himself king and it looks like it is up to Connor to stop him.
