Video: Assassin's Creed Brotherhood: Dev Interview and Trailer

50°
183w ago - Sony's Social Media Manager Jeff Rubenstein has posted an interview with the development team of Assassin's Creed Brotherhood at Ubisoft Montreal answering some of fan questions about the game and sharing an Assassin's Creed Brotherhood story trailer, as follows:

One of the blessings (and curses) of working in this industry is getting to play unfinished games well before their release date.

The blessing part is obvious; we didn't hesitate to knock off work early to go play Assassin's Creed Brotherhood on PS3 at an Ubisoft preview event. Heck, that *is* work.

The curse part sneaks up on you later; after sampling the first 3 hours of the game, I've been dying to play some more - something we can't do until the game hits store shelves on November 16th.

Don't feel sorry for us - it was our job to quiz the development team from Ubisoft Montreal on what we saw, and Mission Director Gaelic Simard was all too happy to answer our questions and yours.





A bit more on those first few hours of the game (with as little in the realm of spoilers as possible)...

As someone who saw Assassin's Creed II all the way through to a Platinum Trophy, I was curious...

Video: Rock of Ages PS3: Hilarious New Renaissance PSN Trailer

184w ago - Atlus USA Project Lead Clayton Chan has made available a hilarious new Rock of Ages PS3 Renaissance trailer today, which is heading to PSN in Spring 2011.

To quote: In KT Tunstall's new single, she bemoans the fact that she didn't get to be several of the things she envisioned becoming, one of those things being a rock of ages.

Well, fret no more, KT! We've got the cure for those incredibly specific blues right here! In our 2011 title, Rock of Ages, you will finally get to be a Rock of Ages. Sisyphus's Rock of Ages, to be precise.

Maybe you two will grab a drink and reminisce sometime about that one time he was rolling you up a hill and then he slipped, and you rolled all the way back down...or the other time that happened.

The guys at ACE Team have put together this wonderfully lighthearted, action-packed trailer that highlights the rush you'll from careening into would-be obstacles at high speed.

Sure, your opponent's going to have some defenses set up, but fortune (and physics) generally favors the boulder. (We're never going to run out of rock puns, folks. I could talc all day about them.)
