Can’t get enough of BioShock Infinite? Me neither! Get a sneak peek of the upcoming ‘Lamb of Columbia’ trailer before the full version is released today.

I’m guessing we’ll see more about Elizabeth since she is, after all, the Lamb as implied in the second segment of the […]

Assassin’s Creed 3: Tyranny of King Washington launch trailer is here

More posts about Feb 19 2013 add comment

The first episode for Assassin’s Creed 3’s The Tyranny of King Washington DLC expansion pack called ‘The Infamy’ is finally here. The launch trailer is a bit of a lackluster compared to other Assassin’s Creed-related trailers, showing Connor in his wolf outfit at the center of the George Washington drama. The excessive violent scenes seem to make it less cinematic and tells us little about the story behind the DLC. And is that Connor’s mom, Ziio?
