In an interview with EW Magazine, Assassin’s Creed movie star Michael Fassbender told the publication that he had never played the original video game before joining the franchise: “I hadn’t played it before these guys approached me. I’ve played it since [being offered the job] mainly to get an idea of the physicality of the character. We’re striving to find something special. We believe the whole concept around it is special and want to service that the best we can. The fans are really passionate: very specific and they expect accuracy and historical detail. We’re really trying to capitalize and feed on and enjoy

First off, full disclosure, I consider myself a novice gamer and by many people’s standards, I’m probably being generous. The only video game I have ever beaten is Journey and most of my gameplay was on a Nintendo 64 as a child in the late 1990s. That in mind, I was not going to pass up the opportunity to check out the Doctor Who level of the new Lego Dimensions game at San Diego Comic-Con! Right off the bat – Lego Dimensions looks amazing! It is a beautiful game that understands the constructs of the medium it is being designed in and creatively renders characters, props and settings

I can see them through the brush—those red eyes, glowing like the waning embers of a fireplace. There are two: One is in a top hat, the other a derby, both mustachioed to an ostentatious degree and both resting their hunting rifles in the crooks of their arms. These gentlemen sentries have been scanning the countryside for the past 15 minutes. They’re looking for me. Their surveillance balloon has been drifting around near me, but so far I’ve been lucky enough to avoid its spotlight and the resulting klaxon. I’d like to fight back, but right now I’ve got to
There are few things everyone can agree on. Welsh corgis are cute, black licorice tastes weird (even if you like it), and the Ninja Turtles are awesome. Leonardo, Donatello, Michaelangelo and Raphael have been kicking robot, ninja, mutant and alien butt for the better part of three decades. This, however, puts a lot of pressure on a Ninja Turtles video game. Especially considering that the TMNT franchise has spawned a dozen games, many of which are very highly regarded. Does Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows for Xbox Live Arcade stand its ground? Or does it fail to
The rain came down in a torrent just outside the fish market as the private police force bore down on us from all angles. I had with me a gun-toting troll—a mountain of a woman she was—and a plucky little dwarf furiously alternating between casting buffs on us and throwing fireballs at the cops. None of us mattered, though. Our only concern was the elf, our decker. She had plugged herself into a corporate Intranet to retrieve some R&D files for a client—just a little corporate espionage. Such is the life of a runner in Harebrained Schemes’ recently released “Shadowrun
