Up until recently, I've been exposed to Assassin Creed III in small doses. I saw an early glimpse of what to expect at the reveal event, enjoyed the new multiplayer offerings, and had fun sailing the seas. Yet in all this time, I was never really able to go hands-on with the core single-player experience. (Hamza Aziz)
Playing as a sniper in Borderlands meant that you got to see a lot of heads pop in juicy showers of blood and eyeballs. Going through Borderlands 2 with a similar build, I started to notice that headshots were no longer satisfying, as skulls remains defiantly shatterproof. I'm not alone. (Jim Sterling)
I was invited to Walt Disney World in Orlando to attend a Power of Illusion demonstration led by Junction Point's Warren Spector and DreamRift's creative director Peter Ong. After the duo ran through the game's creation, I was able to hop onto one of the 3DS units available and play a few areas, including the newly unveiled Aladdin-themed environment. (Tony Ponce)
Assassin's Creed 3 has two brand new multiplayer modes, and we got our first chance to go hands-on at last week's Boston preview event.
