Endweek News – Assassin’s Creed lawsuit not quite finished yet, What is this E3 thing?, a new Gears of War and some truly awesome videos!

It is that time of week where once again I delve into the grim and gritty business of video game news. It’s a cut-throat world out there, a game eat game world. A world in which only the fittest and most awesome games survive. And Call of Duty of course (OOoooh! ZING!). But seriously, it’s not really that bad (well not for everyone) and we’ve got some pretty interesting bits and pieces of news to regale you with today. Also I want to make it clear that the above video is indeed sort of relevant to this post as you shall find out later (if you read through this!) So, what’s new Gamers?

Endweek News

You will have, obviously noticed that last week we had no news on Sunday and that this week we actually had no news on Wednesday either. And there are very good reasons for both of these things. As you might be aware I am in the middle of my exam period and I’m finding it a little more difficult to make the time to do the news. But don’t worry, after next week things ought to return to pretty much normal as both me and Tim will be finished. And so we’ll need to come up with an excuse other than “We are lazy sons-of-bitches!” Also, we are still playing around with our new “4 posts per week” system and have decided to only have one session of news on most weeks. While you might still see some Midweek News at some point in the future, for now we are going to be doing two reviews a week, on Wednesdays and Fridays. Anyway, “reasons” over! Let’s see what’s been happening in the world of video games for the last two weeks.

Assassin’s Creed 3 Reveal – Possibly sooner than expected!

Monday the 5th. At 5:00pm. A day for all our diaries because that is when this website’s countdown runs out and we will get the official announcement and reveal of Assassin’s Creed 3. Ubisoft, god-bless ’em, I do love them but they must seriously have firewalls made of paper and the security teams from  Assassin’s Creed because I swear SO much of their stuff gets leaked before they want it to.

Mass Effect 3 From Dust DLC

GameStop in the USA are already selling codes for some Mass Effect 3 DLC (called From Dust, so yeah the picture is related) despite the fact that the game isn’t even out yet. The codes are $10 so it’s around the usual 800 Microsoft Points/£7.99. Whether or not it will be sold outside of the US is yet to be determined, but I sure hope so.

World of Warcraft: Mists of Pandaria New Talents

You might well be aware that Blizzard have already announced the next stage for World of Warcraft. A far away and mystical land known as Pandaria. With the traditional plethora of new features and updates has come something which has surprised an awful lot of people and caused a fair amount of uproar in the World of Warcraft community. Blizzard have decided to scrap their traditional Talent Tree system that they have been using for all of the seven years WoW has been active in favour of a new system. I have decided to tell you a little bit about it and give you my pennies worth.
