Detective Veronica Mars (also known as Kristen Bell in the dimension where women take really long in the bathroom) went through a portal to meet with IGN and dropped major sci-fi bombs on the plot of Assassin's Creed:

"It's sort of based on the research that's sort of happening now, about the fact that your genes might be able to hold memory. And you could argue semantics and say it's instinct, but how does a baby bird know to eat a worm, as opposed to a cockroach, if its parents don't show it? And it's about this science company (WHAT?!!) trying to, Matrix-style, go into peoples brains and find out an ancestor who used to be an assassin, and sort of locate who that person is."

Holy Asimov! It seems that we'll be doing a heck of a lot more than burninating thatched roof cottages in the Third Crusade. We saw a glimpse of a memory GUI last week, so apparently the missions have something to do with unraveling a mystery that's hidden in the genetic code of ancestral assassins ... rendered in 1080, give or take your blood type. So when you die in the game does that mean you have bad unconscious memory, or is that crap in a dirty petri dish messing up your Microsoft Points?

Truth be told, I'm more nervous Keanu-style that when the story hits my brain I might have to sort of locate sucky words to describe it. Did this game just jump the shark? Hopefully they can bring the awesome in present day.

Admit it, you're a Yoshi ditcher

I've done it. You've done it. We've all done it. When you have to choose between Mario or Yoshi, it's always going to be Yoshi getting sacrificed for the greater good ... or for that damn Moon 3-Up x on the Cheese Bridge Area stage in Super Mario World. more

This custom System Shock 2 PC is what my hacker-infested dreams are made of

System Shock 2 is one of my all-time favorite games, and this custom PC featuring SHODAN is amazing. Granted, it's not a spot-on SHODAN, but it's close enough to make me more than a little moist and extremely jealous. TTLG f...more
