Absolutely Anything – RELEASE TRAILER!

More trailer news!

This time we have a Monty Python take very reminiscent of Bruce Almighty in the form of Absolutely Anything. With Simon Pegg as lead and co-starring Robin Williams’ final performance as the voice of Dennis the dog. Looking like a very British comedy (obviously) the humour looks to be both crude and stupid with a far more realistic approach to what someone would do with the ability to do anything!

The movie releases August 14th and is the final appearance of the late, great Robin Williams.

A Flurry of E3 2014 Trailers – Here’s the ones that matter to me!

Simply said, the features and trailers emerging from E3 are incredible. Down below I will feature some of the best content from the event and my personal favourites from the first day. Let’s get straight into it with the brand new Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare with a suspiciously Titanfall-esque style

Now a trio from one of the best developers around – Bioware with information on an unnamed title, a new Mass Effect and Dragon Age Inquisition

Square Enix returns with a follow-up to its incredible Tomb Raider

The long-awaited and perfectly timed Star Wars Battlefront rears its head in this production trailer

The fear inducing Dying Light slaps Mirrors Edge in the face as it waltzes on stage

Evolve makes Arnie’s Predator movie look tame

And who can’t love Scalebound’s use of giant dragons beating the hell out of giant monsters while a skinny dude runs around listening to dance music?

This is only scraping the surface of trailers that have been coming out and it can only get better. Be sure to check out the E3 website and Twitter for tons more information and stick around on Black Ribbon for lots more news and reviews!

Assassin’s Creed Unity News From E3 2014

One of the biggest weeks in gaming is upon us. E3 is in full swing and information if flowing from all corners of the industry. I shall be doing my best to cover what information I can, so be sure to check back with me!

Ubisoft dropped a huge bomb a few months back with an apparent “leak” of information about the next instalment of the Assassin’s Creed series based in the French revolution titled Unity. Until now, information has been scarce but today we have some fantastic news. Jumping upon the Watch_Dogs online Co-op trend, ACU/AC5 will include a 4 player Co-op with the news accompanied but this fantastic video demonstrating the flow of gameplay, visual capabilities and obviously the Co-op!

But that’s not all! Down below are the cinematic trailer and the introduction to our new protagonist – Arno Dorian and his new toys!. The cinematic trailers released for the Assasin’s Creed series follow a trend for visual perfection and excitement with some of the best music around. It’s hard not to get pumped for such an awesome looking game. Enjoy the videos and let me know what you think of them!

E3 – My favourite trailers!

Now, by the time this gets out, the whole event will most likely be over. Instead of looking at the consoles and how far Microsoft have screwed their fans, we shall be looking directly at a few games that I’ve been excited about over the past months that have been exhibited during the last week!

First out of the gate is Watch Dogs. Created by Ubisoft, this science fiction thriller looks to be an exciting and creative dimension on sandbox gaming. A big brother world, dominated by high grade electronics and security systems is cracked by a vigilante mastermind who fights crime much like Batman but with little remorse when it comes to his gun.

Secondly, we have the 3rd edition in the Dragon Age series “Inquisition”. Forgetting the truly horrendous acts of the 2nd game, I’m excited about playing this. Clocking up almost 100 hours of game play from Origins, I hope that this instalment can equal the classic in both story and content. It does seem that Bioware pull it back in the 3rd game and lose it in the 2nd. For instance, Mass Effect 2; which was quite a change from the first but the third worked out to be one of the best games I played. Keep it up Bioware!

Now we have another new game on the scene. Ryse: Son of Rome. I know little about what this game is about but by look at the trailer, it involves swords, battles, Romans and lots of blood. All things I enjoy in a good game. So, here you go!

Fourth and finally we have Assassins Creed 4: Black Flag. Following from the triumphs of the navel missions in AC3, the creation of the game gives new light on the overall tale of the assassins order. I’ve posted about this multiple times already and I’m a huge fan boy of this so I shall just pop the trailer here for you guys before I ramble much further!

Thanks for reading guys! I would have put the new Battlefield and Call of Duty but they seem to be getting enough attention at the moment. These are just a few of the games that I’m looking forward too, so be sure to comment about yours!
