The Best PC Games being released in 2013 – a great list of pc games due for release this year broken down by type of game, it looks like it’s going to be a great year for PC gaming! (UPDATE: PC Gamer have included updates of how the games turned out with quick summaries and links to their full reviews, quite cool to see how the year turned out!)
Amazing Chinese-style Assassin’s Creed artwork – I’m a real fan of the Assassin’s Creed franchise, while admittedly these are far from perfect yet, still very enjoyable and a great way to virtually experience some history from around the world. From looking at this artwork, I think Medieval Chinese assassin would definitely be an interesting setting for a future game.
This fantastic aerial photo of NYC turns Manhattan into ‘Sim City’ – I used to love the first two Sim City games back as a kid, so this view of New York looks amazing!
Guillermo del Toro used the voice of GLaDOS in ‘Pacific Rim’ as a tribute to the ‘Portal’ series – when I first saw the trailer I thought I must be mistaken but turns I wasn’t and it’s a great nod from Hollywood to gaming.
Video games don’t create violence in society, they reflect it – I certainly agree on this point, if someone is going to do something violent, they’ll likely end up doing it one way or another. If anything, I’d perhaps argue the point that gaming helps to get relieve stress and help get these “tendencies” out of their system without people being hurt?
