Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag review – Does attaching hidden blades to cannons defeat the purpose?

Do you know what Tim said to me when he and I first had seen the cinematic trailer for Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag? We were speaking on an IM at the time and he straight-up said “This looks like the first Assassin’s Creed I’m interested in since the first one, it looks properly legit”. “Legit”, being pretty big praise from the likes of him and me. Tim doesn’t often get quite so sucked into game series as I do and so retains a moderately unbiased view when it comes to these things, so after the apparent disappointment which was Assassin’s Creed 3, this was a very interesting thing to hear from him.

Video Mondaily – Sir, You Are Being Hunted

  Sir, You Are Being Hunted is a first person shooter set in a randomly generated British-style country full of forests, small villages, roads and all the sort of quintessential “British” rural necessities (or at least I believe that is what they were aiming for). Oh, plus there’s robots. The game is based around an alternate dimension sort-of-thing that the player has been teleported to in which you are the only human and steam-punk robots have taken over and are now trying to relocate your head from your shoulders. Plus they have top-hats, so they can’t be that bad.
