Surfing on a boat! Arrr!

Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag is definitely one of the most highly anticipated games of 2013. The game builds on Assassin’s Creed III‘s engine, while taking the theme of the game into pirate-territory with a focus on the ship-battle and boat exploration gameplay that made an appearance in AC3; and expanding it to an entire game.

Here is the Ubisoft Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag E3 2013 Press Conference Gameplay Walkthrough Video.

While the new pirate focus is really cool material to be mined for a videogame, much less an Assassin’s Creed title, the game definitely doesn’t feel as innovative or as big as AC3; as the game essentially looks the same.

I found myself bored with the pirate gameplay, as even though you are a pirate, it just feels like you are on a ship… At least, that’s the impression I got.

Here is the Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag E3 2013 Trailer.

Even so, the game is being taken in a lot of new directions. Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag has a new protagonist in Edward Kenway, a British pirate and member of the Assassin Order, and descendant of Connor from Assassin’s Cred III. It will feature three new main cities with a large part of the game set in Cuba. The cities include Havana, Kingston and Nassau; with influence from the Spanish, British and local/surrounding area pirates. All told the game will feature over 50 locations to explore, both on land and via naval ship that you can command (You can also hijack and steal other ships and engage in ship-on-ship warfare).

Ubisoft has also taken Assassin’s Creed IV in a much more open-world direction with the 4th installment, and it will be much less scripted and linear than AC3. Hunting both on land and in water via harpoon has also been added, with the hunting system expanded. In addition, the player’s ship can now be upgraded, and underwater gameplay has been added. Meanwhile, recruiting allies, a feature from Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood, returns in AC4. All of this should be good news to AC fans (also, improved crouching!).

Multiplayer will also return. Details in this Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag Video Interview:

Here is a look at Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag Multiplayer Gameplay in this E3 2013 Floor Footage Video.

Watch all the videos for much more information on this AAA title that will be hitting this year for virtually all platforms. The game will be released on October 29th in America, October 31st in Australia and November 1st 2013 in Europe on Xbox 360, PS3, PC, and WiiU. The game will then hit later this year, likely in November or December, for XboxOne and PS4. Covering just about all the bases except handheld.

Regardless of where you stand on the Assassin’s Creed series, and whether or not you think the yearly annual installment system is making the franchise stale, you have to admit that this game is looking pretty awesome. And I would be surprised if it wasn’t another big hit for Ubisoft. It is a bit surprising that the game is being given a numbered title; but the fact that it stars a new main character, with a new storyline and new pirate direction, make the new numbered title a good fit.

Here are the Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag Stage Demos showing lots of gameplay and details from the game.

InFamous PS4 Game Is Awesome. Titled Second Son, Trailer Is Mighty Impressive

InFamous: Second Son PS4 Gameplay Screenshot

I love this part of the trailer!

InFamous: Second Son is definitely a killer-app for the PS4 and impressed many with this awesome gameplay trailer shown at Sony’s E3 2013 Press Conference.

The game features an open-world design but a very, very strong focus on story and character development. The new moves you can do in this game are phenomenal, and even though I’ve never played the previous two games, this game immediately shot to the top of my list. Fans will notice a lot of familiar moves as well as tons of new ones. This game just looks super tight.

Definitely a must-have game for the PS4.

Does PS4 Require Always Online Internet Connection? No. No Online Check For Single Player Either

PS4 does NOT require an always online Internet connection, nor does it require an online check! Want to play a single player game offline without ever getting online? You can do exactly that!

An absolute sucker-punch to Microsoft and their tough DRM policies that have gotten the house that Xbox built in hot water… Will all of this force Microsoft to reverse course? Let’s all hope so!

Does PS4 Support Used Games? Yes. Allows Full Consumer Rights To Borrow, Rent, Lend And Trade Too

PS4 Used Games Sharing Instructional Video

Hahaha. #ps4wins

Does PS4 support used games? Yes. You can also freely lend, borrow, rent and trade PlayStation 4 games with no penalty to the consumer whatsoever, a clear shot straight into Microsoft’s backyard… And straight into the hearts of gamers everywhere!

Whereas the XboxOne Used Games controversy has bitten Microsoft in the ass, Sony has flipped the script and played chess to checkmate Microsoft while they are down. Everything the XboxOne has done to take away the rights of consumers, Sony has done the opposite.

And then there’s this:

Genius. Absolutely genius. Things are going to get really interesting….

How Much Does PS4 Cost? $400. $100 Cheaper Than XboxOne

PS4 $400 Price. Cost Is $100 Cheaper Than XboxOne

Wow. Megaton!

How much does the PS4 cost? $400. That’s the price for the PlayStation 4, making it a full $100 dollars cheaper than the $500 dollar XboxOne!

This is a HUGE blow to Microsoft, and could go very far in ensuring that PlayStation 4 will be the immediate favorite in the next-gen console war, at least out the starting gate.

Of course, which company has the better games is up to taste, I personally found the XboxOne’s lineup with TitanFall and Ryse to be much more impressive… but will that be enough for Microsoft? Time will tell!

PS4 Will Get Exclusive Sony Pictures TV Shows, Movies, And Content

PS4 will get exclusive Sony Pictures TV shows, movies and content in a huge new push to unite the PlayStation-brand with Sony’s other departments in movies, music and video.

This is Sony’s push to directly compete with Microsoft’s XboxOne and it’s focus on TV. However Sony is even more powerful in this department by the very fact that Breaking Bad, for example, was created by Sony Pictures!

In other words, they can provide exclusive TV shows or movies of the highest caliber, something Microsoft can’t boast… at least through in-house content.

Exactly how this will develop for the PS4 is up in the air, but this is a huge announcement by Sony either way from their E3 2013 Press Conference.
