Assassin’s Creed Unity bundles and Rogue Storyline trailer tapped

This morning we’re having a peek at several different angles on Assassin’s Creed Unity - product, storyline, and gameplay. While we got our Assassin’s Creed: Unity First-Impressions in on the 6th, one week ago, we’re having another look at the game from a final release schedule perspective today. It begins with bundles - two of them, both with the Xbox One. We can't help but wonder how long it'll be before the PlayStation 4 bundles arrive (if they exist, that is to say) - without camera, of course.

Alien: Isolation is just the first of the age of Terror Games

Alien: Isolation is just the first of the age of Terror Games

When I played Alien: Isolation for the first time, I got sick to my stomach. It was a physical necessity that I stop playing - and I hadn’t even seen the Alien itself yet. Now is the next age of the horror game. Not just horror for the gamer - not just a place where you can get out an tune out.

Dead Rising movie contains cameos, product placement

There’s a Dead Rising movie coming soon. It’ll be a movie translation of the video game series, the one whose third installment just hit PC after being launched on Xbox One. Zombies will be in this movie, and it’ll take place in the same Dead Rising universe somewhere between Dead Rising 2 and Dead Rising 3. You can bet there'll be plenty of bashing, plenty of blood, and one whole heck of a lot of Zombrex to keep you clean and out of the person-eating-person gutter.
