Ubisoft reportedly interested in buying THQ properties

Earlier this week, we found out that THQ had filed for chapter 11 bankruptcy after its incredibly successful Humble Bundle. Clearlake Capital Group put in a stalking horse bid for the company's assets, which effectively wipes out THQ's debt so the company can keep day-to-day operations and development on upcoming games going while a buyer is tracked down.

For instance, did you know that there are more than 1,000 Windows 8 certified PCs now? How about the fact that Microsoft has sold a whopping 670 million Windows 7 licenses?

Assassin’s Creed III to “bring some finality to Desmond’s story”

If you follow Assassin's Creed news, you probably know that it might not be long before we say goodbye to Desmond, one of the main characters in the story, for good. In a new interview with OXM, lead designer Steve Masters seems to suggest that Assassin's Creed III may be the last game to feature Desmond.

Apple has managed to delay the ban of the iPhone and iPad in South Korea, and we learned that the company's new dock connector is nearly impossible to mod in a new teardown.
