Assassin's Creed IV - Pirate Heist Trailer Looks Pretty Cool

I've watched the Pirate Heist trailer for Assassin's Creed IV a few times now and I have to admit, it does look pretty cool. I'm actually curious about this game and really wanting to try it out. One thing I'm hoping is that they have tweaked the controls for the ocean battles so that they handle better. We shall see for ourselves when the came is released on October 29, 2013.

Farewell Hiroshi Yamuichi

 I remember playing Super Mario and Zelda with my brother as a kid and how much fun I had playing them; which led to my love gaming. I went on to play many other different styles of games, but Zelda and Mario have always held a special place in my heart. So, it is with sadness that I say farewell Hiroshi Yamuichi who passed away from pneumonia at 85 and thank you for the great childhood memories and introducing me to video games that were so much fun to play.

Thanks DC Comics For Making Sure I Will NEVER Buy Comics From You Again

 I already had a problem with DC Comics because of the way they treat female fans and act like everything is one big boy's club. Then they decided that BatWoman should never get to marry her girlfriend Maggie which caused their creative team to quit. Yikes! Now with this latest stunt; a contest for people to draw Harley Quinn naked and committing suicide I find myself completely disgusted and deciding I will never buy DC Comics again. You can read the article from The Daily Dot here:
 Maybe other people are okay with this, but not me and certainly not any of the other people who have decried this pretty despicable thing. First question, why does Harley Quinn have to be naked? Second question, how is a joke about suicide ever funny? Jim Palmiotti's poor defensive excuse of it's meant to be a joke in a Loony Toons style is not going to cut it. Considering that starting tomorrow is National Suicide Prevention Week, that makes this whole thing even more disgusting and disheartening. While I know they mean it to be satirical in the vein of Deadpool, I myself still find this to be in incredibly poor taste.  As the article states, it really does seem like DC Comics PR department is deliberately sabotaging themselves. If that's their plan, it's working because I know I will not be buying anything from them anytime soon.

Dragon Age: Inquistion Looks Like They're Actually Listening To The Fans About What They Want

Truly, I was skeptical after what I felt was a bit of a fiasco with Dragon Age II. However, after reading this article, while I am still reserving judgement until I see the finished product; this seems like a step in the right direction. It sounds like BioWare is actually listening to the fans about what they want to make a great Dragon Age game. You can look at all the pretty screen shots and read all about it in this article here:
