Launch Trailer For Shadow Of Mordor Game.

Here’s the official launch trailer for the open world, role-playing video game Shadow Of Mordor.

The Middle Earth based game has been developed by Monolith Productions and went on general release yesterday for PC, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One. The game itself deals with the gap between the events of The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings saga as you play as Talion, a ranger with wraith-like abilities, who embarks upon a quest for revenge after his family are slayed by Sauron’s armies.

General reviews have been very positive with many describing it as a Middle Earth version of Assassin’s Creed.

All The Press Conferences From GamesCom 2014.

Here’s both Microsoft’s and Sony’s press conferences which were held earlier this week at this year’s GamesCom, the world’s largest interactive games event which is held in Cologne, Germany.

Nintendo didn’t have a press conference at GamesCom and much like their decision to avoid an on-site presentation at this year’s E3 they once again opted for a video detailing all the major releases for the Wii U in the near future, (which you can watch below).

Regardless which console you’re a fan of it’s clear to see we are entering into an exciting new realm of gaming thanks to the mindblowing technology on display.

Man Goes Crazy After Completing Tetris.

(WARNING: NSFW language)

It’s about the small things in life. The little every day victories which keep us all moving forward with a spring in our step and a smile on our face.

Take the guy in the video above who after many, many hours of dedication and patience finally managed to complete Alexey Pajitnov’s 80s puzzle game Tetris. Did he celebrate? You’re damn right he did and with loads of colorful language too. If you can’t be bothered watching the whole video, the fun starts around 8.40.

Rob Zombie’s Assassin’s Creed Unity Short Is Bloody To The Max.

The excellent NSFW animated short was developed for Ubisoft by horror director Rob Zombie and illustrated by The Walking Dead co-creator Tony Moore and is unsurprisingly extremely gory and violent.

It briefly dpeicts the bloody history behind the French revolution neatly setting up the premise for Ubisoft’s forthcoming game Assassin’s Creed Unity. Will this short make you run out and buy the game? Probably not. But it will make you yearn for a history teacher like Rob Zombie.

Be A Parkour Assassin @ San Diego Comic Con.

To promote their forthcoming game Assassins Creed: Unity at this year’s Comic Con in San Diego developers Ubisoft have constructed a parkour driven obstacle course for people to use, allowing them to get the real Assassins Creed experience.

As the video shows above you’ll be able to traverse, and run across obstacles using just your raw athleticism to conquer each section of the course. There’s just one hitch, the vast majority of those who will take part will likely be gamers…so, yeah…raw athleticism.
