Another new trailer has made an appearance at this years Gamescom 2011 in Germany for the Assassins Creed Revelations game, that will be launching later this year, in November.
The new trailer released by Ubisoft focuses on the agility and hand
to hand combat players of the games have become to relish, which have
been developed even further in the new release. Together with some
fantastic panoramic shots of the locations you can expect to play in
once the new game is released.
The highly anticipated release of Assassins Creed Revelations will be released on November 15 for PC, PS3 and Xbox 360.
You might have already heard that the creator of Minecraft Markus "Notch” Persson is currently being pursued by a lawsuit from Bethesda, (creator of the Elder Scrolls series of games) for using the word ” Scrolls” within a new game title he has developed.
The new Scrolls game developed by Persson is a fantasy strategy game, developing the trading card game style
of play. However Bethesda haven’t taken kindly to the use of "Scrolls”
and say its a trademark infringement on the Elder Scrolls trademark. But
rather than firing back with lawyers, Persson has challenged Bethesda
to a duel in Quake 3 to sort out the disagreement.
Persson has responded to Bethesda with an email stating his position:
"Remember that scene in Game of Thrones where Tyrion chose a
trial by battle in the Eyrie

Gamescom 2011 has already provided some great game trailers this week in Germany, and the latest to be released is a stunning 5 minute Guild Wars 2 trailer, that won’t disappoint.
Last year at Gamescom AreanaNet won the Online Game of the Year
award and has come back this year looking to defend its title with the
launch of a new playable build of the anticipated MMO. Watch the trailer
build into a crescendo of battles after the jump, showing how the five
great races competed and warred against each other, struggling to tip
the balance of power in their favour.
Unfortunately no launch date has been released as yet by AreanaNet, but when the new game does launch it will be an exclusive to PC game.

We’re not entirely sure what makes otherwise discerning professionals go in for these fanciful predictions. We just hope video game
consultant Mark Cerny provided more than the one example Eurogamer
wrote about, although it’s not like anyone actually takes starry-eyed
industry futurists to task unless they’re named Peter Molyneux.
"We’re already seeing the wall starting to crumble a bit,” he said.
"Demon’s Souls, even though on one level it’s a single-player game, as
you’re walking through the world you’re seeing the ghosts of everybody
who died in that world via the internet. You can leave messages for
them. They can leave messages for you. There’s actually a boss you fight
in that game which is controlled by another player.
"We’re talking five, 10 years out. I believe three years from now, if
you aren’t doing that, you are being criticised in y

New information is trickling out about Nintendo’s non-update to its
formerly barely next-gen, soon to be stone age-gen console. Sure, it’s
reportedly slightly slimmer and it has a newfound fondness for the
horizontal plane, but apparently it’s losing something fairly important
in the process: GameCube compatibility.
Aside from that, a Nintendo rep told the
company ”does not currently have any plans” to bring the console to the
US, much like Sony did with its just-announced "el cheapo” flavour of
WiFi-less PSP. We’re not entirely sure when Europe became the dumping
ground for gimped cut-rate consumer electronics, but we think most
Europeans would much rather have the proper ones for a sane price, thank
you very much.
That’s one way to compete with smartphones, we guess, though thinking
back to the PSP’s heyday as a sleek and sexy luxury handheld nearly
brought a tear to our eyes. Sony’s new PSP
will be dubbed E-1000 and will apparently forego cutting edge tech like
decade old WiFi technology in favor of… UMDs. Everyone knows physical
media is the new digital delivery.
Sony’s take is a lot more upbeat, though:
"Value for money is the goal with this new model that will retail at
just €99.99 (RRP), accompanied by an exciting range of PSP Essentials
titles that will retail at only €9.99 (RRP) and will include Invizimals:
The Lost Tribe, EyePet Adventures, FIFA 12 and many more.
While PSP E-1000 does not include Wi-Fi, it will still provides access to the full catalogue of PSP games either on UMD or from PlayStation Store via Med

While the art style will most definitely stir Chrono Trigger
nostalgia, there’s more of an Up quality to this achingly beautiful
trailer for what’s sure to be a thoroughly emotional game. The story
behind the game, which the trailer is too busy tugging heartstrings and
conjuring up regret-tinged memories to properly go into is that Dr. Eva
Rosalene and Dr. Neil Watts can alter a dying person’s memories to make
him experience the life he might have wanted and proceed to do so for a
dying old man named, curiously enough, Johnny.
There is a girl and a chance meeting on
the stairs and a lighthouse and a space shuttle and horseback riding and
that’s about all we could make out before something um… got in our
eyes. Johnny’s last wish is to go to the moon. Ours, all other things
being equal, would be to see more games like this one being made, or at
the very least
