Digging deeper into Lords of Shadow 2 with Dave Cox

Assassin's Creed IV: Welcome to the Golden Age of Pirates photo
Assassin's Creed IV: Welcome to the Golden Age of Pirates
by Dale North

Your journey as an Assassin's Creed player has been a vast and varied one so far. Time travel has taken us through some of the most exciting times in human history. But, at first glance, the setting for the franchise's next stop sounds a bit banal in comparison to previous games. A bunch of pirates in the Caribbean? We've already seen that movie. Four times. 

From what we've seen of the game, I'll tell you that this isn't some cheesy kids' flick. Ubisoft have dug deep into the treasure chest that is the history of the golden age of piracy. They have used what they've found to build an original and highly-detailed world that we can expect to get lost in once more. It's less about eye patches and peg legs and more about the realities of being a pirate in the late 1600s. 

It's way cooler than it sounds at first.

by Jayson Napolitano

In an unexpected surprise here at Comic Con, Konami showed off an extensive hands-off gameplay walkthrough detailing more of the game’s systems, music, and environs. The demo took place a brief time after the events seen in the E3 demo, after Dracula has awoken from his thousand-year slumber and is exploring his castle in an effort to reclaim his lost power.

There are more reasons than ever to be excited about this game, so find out what it was all about below.

Getting drawn into Scribblenauts Unmasked  photo
Getting drawn into Scribblenauts Unmasked
by Dale North

I took a break from the crowded show floor of San Diego Comic-Con to relax for a bit with the latest build of 5th Cell's upcoming game, Scribblenauts Unmasked: A DC Comics Adventure. Scribblenauts has always been one of those games that's easy to pick up but hard to break away from, but the new superhero twist in this latest game gives us even more to get lost in.
