Assassn's Creed IV: Black Flag Officially Announced

Ubisoft has just announced the next installment in the Assassin's Creed Series called, Assassin's Creed IV:Black Flag.  The game has been confirmed for Xbox 360, Wii U, PC and PlayStation 3. Below is the official box art.


There is no word on whether or not the game will come to next-gen platforms like the PlayStation 4 or the Next Xbox, we should have that information within the coming months.

It seems whenever there is a Assassin's Creed game with a number in the name, it usually indicates a brand new hero and brand new time period and location. The PlayStation 3 version includes 60 minutes of extra gameplay, Ubisoft seems to prefer PS3 or any other platform.

The game will star a pirate assassin, set in the locale of the Caribbean (Pirates of the Caribbean anyone?). Some rumors suggest that the new protagonist is actually Connor's grandfather, Edward Kenway however nothing like that was confirmed by Ubisoft today.

We will have more information on March 4th, 2013 ,where Ub…

App of the Week: The Simpsons: Tapped Out

This week, EA officially released the very popular simulation freemium game, The Simpsons: Tapped Out on the Google Play Store after almost a year after it's iOS counterpart was released. As says the description of the game on the Google Play Store, "This Game is Life-Ruining Fun", they literally mean that (sort-of). Once you start playing this game, you can never stop.
