Worthplaying captured a shot of the sale page for a batch of credits with accompanying description. "Buying this pack will grant you 925 Erudito Credits ingame, allowing you to acquire some game items, disregarding your current level."
2012 was a particularly great year for writing in video games. There was the harrowing campaign of Spec Ops: The Line, the consistently funny caricatures of Borderlands 2 or, like, a whole 90% of Mass Effect 3. Then, of course, standing way out in front was the emotional bombardment of Telltale's The Walking Dead. So it was no surprise that when the Writers Guild of America announced their shortlist for the Outstanding Achievement in Videogame Writing award, they of course included... wait, what?! They included 007 Legends? How does that make any sense?
Alternative headlines include "Dick and Dom SNUBBED in Online - Browser category", "Black Ops II not deemed most innovative game of the year - internet pitchforks rest easy", or just, "Journey wins pretty much all the other bloody awards, to the chagrin of PC-centric news writers". Still, there were some wins for games that PC owners could play. As well as Dishonored's top award, shiny trophies also went to The Walking Dead, XCOM and Far Cry 3.
I am pursuing a man in a tricorner hat through the streets of colonial New York. In the top-left of the screen, Assassin’s Creed III instructs me to chase him. In smaller text just below it, there is a secondary objective: ‘do not shove or tackle anyone’. I turn sharply into an alleyway and barge past a woman, earning myself a red X on the mission log and losing my ‘full synchronisation’ bonus. I’m not sure why I want to be fully synchronised, but the completionist in me insists that I try again. A few attempts later, I’ve figured out a system. Stop sprinting when the alleyways give out onto open streets, edge carefully around pedestrians, and continue. It’s ludicrous - why on Earth would I not shove someone, if the fate of a nation was at stake - but I’ve not incurred the red X, I’ve not lost my bonus. I chase the man and, as is tradition, wait for the cutscene where I catch him. It doesn’t come. We pass through the same fishmarket for the second time and I realise that we’ve done a lap of central New York. The game is waiting for me. Oh! I think. This is an assassination. I do those.
SEGA’s veteran sports series, Football Manager, is the big winner in this week’s PC sales chart after striding to number one within days of its release. Football Manager 2013 tops the sales list produced by online retailer Green Man Gaming. And the long-running series is proving to be as popular as ever after introducing a cut-down Classic Mode for casual players as an alternative to the increasingly complex Sim Mode. Lurking ominously in the shadows at number six in the chart - on the strength of pre-sales alone - is stealth combat sequel Assassin’s Creed III.
Assassin's Creed III's Connor has bumped Hitman: Absolution's Agent 47 off the top of the PC download hitlist this week. The two games swap places in Green Man Gaming's PC download chart, ending the incumbent's short-lived reign as king of the contract killers.
Quit sharpening those make-shift hidden blades of yours, because it looks like you’ll need them to unmark your calendars. In an interview with Elder Geek, Game Director Ashraf Ismail confirmed that Assassin’s Creed IV will hit the PC a few weeks after its console brethren have released.
We’ve already seen an extensive amount of swashbuckling and pillaging from the latest Assassin’s Creed, but this is the first time the game’s director has sat down to talk shop about the game’s side missions.
The 31st Golden Joystick Awards are only a month away. Not only is it a chance to pick out the best games of the year, but also to prove that our lovable PC boxes are where you'll find those best games. To do this you'll need to get involved, because the awards are chosen entirely from votes collected across the internet. We can't rely on anyone else. They'd only go and vote Pikmin 3 as Game of the Year. This year, the awards have had a bit of a makeover. Returning host Ed Byrne sat down to talk you through the changes.
Preview written by Craig Owens. Assassin’s Creed III’s best missions involved boats, and I’m not just talking about the naval warfare. As thrilling as it was to heave your hulking frigate in alongside some poor schooner and unleash a spectacular, splintering volley of cannon fire, Connor Kenway’s ship was also a useful pretext for leaving the American Revolution behind. “Gosh,” I remember thinking the first time some beautiful Caribbean island hoved into view off the Aquila’s starboard bow, or the first time Connor disembarked to skulk around some far-flung West Indian fort, “how extravagant to do all this research, and produce all these assets for such a tiny part of the game.” I was being naive. The glimpses of paradise seen in ACIII and the briny lashings of ship-versus-ship combat accompanying them were merely a tease for Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag.
Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag doesn’t really want to be an Assassin’s Creed game, and I don’t blame it. It seems keen to shrug off the oblique, convoluted lore surrounding the eon-long Assassins vs Templar power struggle, which managed to reach new peaks of ludicrousness even after that bit in the second game when you punch the Pope into unconsciousness in order to access an alien hologram. Black Flag stuffs all that into a box labelled ‘whoops’, throws it down a deep, dark hole and sends you on third-person free-running murder missions on the high seas instead. By Blackbeard’s bushy eyebrows, that is a welcome move. You are Edward Kenway, a rogue who loves money enough to leave his girlfriend in port and sail to the West Indies in search of a vast fortune. In the opening scenes he steals an Assassin’s hooded garb and wristblades and accidentally falls in with a crowd of Templars, a team of comedy evil caricatures led by a bearded grand master and backed up by a plate armoured man-ogre who throws axes at people. They’re searching for the Observatory, an ancient device that enables its user to see the location of anyone in the world at any time. The Templars want it because it’ll make coups easier, the Assassins want it to stop the Templars, and Kenway wants it because it’s probably the most valuable thing on the planet.
