Weekly Recap: Assassin's Creed Unity Announced And 4 Other Big News Items
Ubisoft finally unveiled their latest entry in the long running Assassin's Creed franchise. For a moment I thought they would wait for E3, but maybe they're prepping for early announcements for one of two things: they want to get the hype-train rolling and chugging down the railway of Dorito-enforced tracks, or... they're prepping for a annual double dipping. You know, a new Assassin's Creed every six months, perhaps? Let's hope it's the latter because I would love to see how gamers would adapt to a completely over-saturated market.
There was also still a lot of Titanfall in the news, as Respawn and Electronic Arts iron out the kinks and get everything up and in working order. Also, in a very not-so-surprising twist in news, both Electronic Arts and Microsoft have been nominated for the Worst Company in America award, courtesy of The Consumerist. This is big news for both companies, as they've done quite a bit to piss off a large portion of their respective audiences. The question is: did EA do enough to rectify their image coming out of a turbulent 2013? Or did Microsoft apologize enough to recover the fumble that was the Summer of DRM? I guess we'll find out. These stories and more in this March 22nd, 2014 edition of the Gaming Blend Weekly Recap.
Titanfall Player Ranks ResetA new bug has attacked the community of rodeo-mech-riding titanauts and jet-pack wearing parkour artists in the recent Respawn Entertainment release. What does the bug do? Well, it resets the player rank. It's somewhat devastating but not by too much. EA and Microsoft are putting their collective boss-brains together to investigate the cause and fix the problem. But if you don't have the patience to wait it out, you can always put some time in Farming Machines Championships 2014. If you do have some additional patience, you might want to grab a Snickers bar while you wait for Amazon's game console, but if you don't mind playing games on mobile devices you don't have to wait long for a mobile version of Blizzard's Hearthstone to arrive.
