Aaaaarrrrrrgggg!! Mateys! Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag is shaping up to be one of the must by games. From the legendary Blackbeard to the violent and malicious Charles Vane – Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag brings together a cast of historical figures unlike any other to tell the true story of the Golden Age of Pirates. Learn more about the infamous cast of characters you’ll come across in Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag with commentary from Matt Ryan, the actor behind Captain Edward Kenway. the season. It has Pirates, what more could you want! UBI Soft has just released another trailer from the game. This one features some of the additional characters in action. The game hits the streets on 360 and PS3 Oct 29th. Think I’m going to wait and get the Xbox One or PS4 version which is slated as day one releases. Check out the video here.
I have an Electric Guitar and haven’t had the inspiration to actually learn how to play it until now. UBI Soft’s Rocksmith game supposedly teaches people how to play guitar by making it a fun game. There are various game modes like Racing Games where cars race along a track as you play chords. Depending on how well you play the chords you will progress in your race. It is a very intriguing concept and way to learn. Check out the video clips after the break where we get a glimpse at how Rocksmith works. New features include Note Heads and Note Tails – that shows how you strike the notes, you can use your cable from 2013 with the new version, import all your 2013 tracks into 2014, improved menus, Kinect voice controls, non-stop play and more. Some of the new tracks announced include Aerosmith’s – Walk this Way, Paramore’s – Now, The Kinks – You Really Got Me, The Rolling Stone’s – Paint it Black and over 50 more songs. Rocksmith will work with any standard Electric Guitar and Acoustic – with a pickup.

We’ve been talking about it for months and it’s finally here – Michael Jackson The Experience, UbiSoft’s freaky Michael Jackson Game for the Wii. I got my Moonwalk on for a few minutes and will have a full review next week, so far the game is – interesting. Have to give the developers props, they got just about every MJ song you would want to dance to and then some odd choices for a dance game – like Earth Song. Check out the final release trailer.
I didn’t take this game seriously when UbiSoft first announced The Michael Jackson Experience Video Game, the more I see of it the more intrigued I get. If there was a dance game that had a chance of getting me off my butt to bust a move. This would be it. UbiSoft seems to be doing all the right things with this property. It’s almost exactly what you would expect it to be – except the the bad Michael Jackson CGI. Today they announced the addition of Dirty Diana, Speed Demon and Street Walker. With tracks like Bad, Thriller, Billie Jean, Workin Day and Night’ and Smooth Criminal already announced, the music selections and moves are all here to give MJ fans exactly what they want.
I hate any game that forces me to get my lazy butt up and move. That’s why I hate the Wii Remote (that and it doesn’t work all that well), PlayStation Move and Kinnect. Just not a fan of motion controls and by extension any Dance Game, but I have to say, I’m strangely enamored the idea of playing a Dancing Game dedicated to the King of Pop himself, Michael Jackson. UbiSoft has announced the first set of tracks for their officially sanctioned game Michael Jackson The Experience.

I don’t know what it is about the Prince of Persia series. I think I’ve always liked them more as a concept and via watching the cool trailers than actually playing. Eventually, all the wall running and jumping along with the bad camera angles gets a bit tiring after awhile. The Sands of Time remain the high watermark of the series, last year’s game was just ridiculous, they took away most of the combat and you every time you missed a jump your partner was there to save you. That I didn’t mind as much because I hate starting over a lot.
Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands takes the game back to its roots, the combat has returned and you actually have to make all your jumps now. The story takes places sometime after the Sands of Time but before last year’s game. It’s an odd duck, because it’s not a tie in to the movie, just timed to release along side it, but there are some elements early on, like adding a back story to the Prince and the inclusion of his brother into the story. His brother foolishly unleashes an Army whose goal is to topple their Kingdom and rule the world.
