Jesus, that was a mouthful. Anyway, the newest DLC for Assassin’s Creed 3 dropped yesterday. It is part one in a three part “What If” story line,  wherein Washington never gives up his power, and becomes the new King of America. It is named Infamy, and the launch trailer makes it look pretty damn interesting.

But are a non-canon story and an intriguing trailer enough to draw your attention throughout all of the to be released packs?

Two weeks ago,  Gearbox released its second DLC for Borderlands 2; Mr. Torgue’s Campaign of Carnage. Mr. Torgue is holding a tournament to find the biggest badass on Pandora, and open a new vault, and he wants you to enter the competition! The DLC promised explosions, loot-splosions, and more badassitude than you could handle. What we ended up getting were some extremely lackluster missions with one of the funniest characters I’ve seen in video games.

If you haven’t been excited for the new Grand Theft Auto game, it’s about time you did. Get excited. For the game. Grand Theft Auto. G.. Listen. Watch the trailer. It’s real good. You’ll like it. You’ll want the game. Okay? Okay.

You can now pre-order the game, which appears to be a spring release! I know I’ll be picking up this particular title, will you?

Throughout the Assassin’s Creed series we’ve traveled through different periods in time following the stories of Altair, Ezio, and Desmond as they fight the nefarious Templar order. In the final installment of Desmond’s story, Assassin’s Creed 3,  we become Connor, the Native American freedom fighter from the Revolutionary War era. We, the fans, were expecting an epic conclusion to the roller coaster story that we rode throughout the series, waiting for the inevitable bang at the end where we would most likely be left wanting more, but knowing the story of Desmond had reached its end. What we got  with Assassin’s Creed 3 instead was a plot line full of twists that went nowhere, unlikable characters, and one of the sorriest excuses for the end of a franchise that I’ve ever seen in gaming.

Assassin’s Creed 3 has been out for over a week, and is about to get completely eclipsed by Halo 4, and then Black Ops 2. Sadly I’ve only had a few days to play it. Oh the life of a collage student is truly a tough one when a man can’t spare more than a few days to play video games. I’m sure you’ll weep for me. Anyway, I’m nowhere near far enough through the game to give anything close to a review, but I can go over some of the major changes I’ve noticed thus far, and discuss what makes AC3 different, if only slightly, from its predecessors.

You’ve finished Borderlands 2, played with the Mechromancer, and claimed Pandora as your personal stomping ground. All the quests are done, and you can finally kick back and relax. That is, unless you haven’t heard the story of Captain Blade’s buried treasure, and experienced Gearbox’s newest DLC for Borderlands 2; Captain Scarlett and Her Pirate’s Booty. If not, allow me to regale you with this swashbuckling tale.

Only three weeks after its release of Borderlands 2, Gearbox Software came out with their first piece of downloadable content: Gaige, the Mechromancer. She is the fifth playable character on the return trip to Pandora, and she brings a whole new set of skills to the table.
