Assassin’s Creed

  1. Assassin’s Creed‘s Ezio Sneaks Up On Peter Dinklage

    Bloody Good Fun

    Peter Dinklage is a talented actor, and a fan favorite on Game of Thrones, so it's nice to see that he's friendly towards his fans as well.  This photo of Reddit user AndyValentine, dressed as Assassin's Creed's Ezio for a recent convention, proves not only that Dinklage is up for some fun with his fans, but that if Cersei and Joffrey really wanted to kill Tyrion, they just needed to hire the right assassin.

  2. Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag Getting Manga Adaptation, Because Sure, Why Not

    The absurd of Abstergo.

    Move over, One Piece, there's a new pirate-themed manga in town. And a very unlikely one at that. Japanese magazine Jump is going to publish a manga series based on Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag, a game made by French developer Ubisoft. Manga based on video games aren't anything particularly new, but one based on a Western game is pretty unusual -- Western games are rarely popular with Japanese gamers, and only series like The Legend of Zelda and Strider have successfully made their way to the right-to-left format, so this is both extremely weird and cool.

  4. Only Female Protagonist in Assassin’s Creed To Get Console Missions

    i'll just leave this here

    When Ubisoft initially announced the creation of Aveline de Grandpré, the first female playable character in the Assassin's Creed franchise, you could tell she'd hit a chord by the best of indicators: despite her costume involving multiple layers, distressed fabrics, studs, buckles, leather, and custom weapons... there was cosplay immediately. This was despite the fact that the game she starred in was available only for a poorly selling handheld device rather than a major console release. But Ubisoft has just confirmed that Aveline will be getting her console debut with the upcoming Assassin's Creed IV: Pirates Black Flag.

  6. Assassin’s Creed Screenshot Mistaken for War-Torn Syria on Danish News

    Searching the web for the right image can be tricky. We at Geekosystem know this well. You can't just grab what you want willy-nilly without a little bit of fact checking. But if you're a TV news station, you should probably be extra careful. Danish channel TV2 made the mistake of displaying a screenshot from Assassin's Creed under the assumption they were a showing a current view of war-torn Syria.

  7. Ubisoft Embraces Piracy, Announces Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag

    Okay, so maybe Ubisoft hasn't actually embraced piracy in the literal sense, but they have embraced pirate-themed video games. After much speculation, and a number of prominent leaks, Ubisoft has confirmed that their latest and greatest Assassin's Creed video game will be officially called Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag. Why they've decided to immediately move to the next installment of the franchise is unclear, but Ubisoft sure does like putting out a new version of this game each year.

    Do Try This At Home

    Has there ever been a more harmonious conflation of style and medium than the pixelated aesthetic popularized by early computer graphics and the comparatively ancient craft of cross-stitched embroidery? Perhaps the triple conflation of cross stitched sprites for popular cultural touchstones whether or not they're related to video games. XStitchMyHeart has a great wealth of patterns for the cross stitchy nerd, or anyone who knows one.

  9. Michael Fassbender’s Assassin’s Creed Movie Is Definitely Happening

    For A More Civilized Age

    Over the summer we heard Prometheus star Michael Fassbender had landed the lead role in Ubisoft's film adaptation of their video game, Assassin's Creed. Not only that, he was co-directing it as well. Then...nothing. Thankfully we can all breathe a big sigh of relief. The project is a go thanks to new financing.
