AT COMIC: Bizarre Creed 

"A rather good one, old chap! - satangel"6

Following the ways of the Rogue was fun, but Keri now takes you on a journey through the crowded city streets of Paris, as she tiptoes across the rooftops, seeking out her pray.

I think she's coming for me... Better double the guards.

Getting down from any height is an absolute breeze, and it’s a far more appealing mode of escape than simply dropping out of sight (and possibly to your death). Since Unity has also opened up the ability to go into nearly every building, Arno can also swing into open windows, providing yet another option or escaping and hiding. However, sometimes the act of getting into said window is quite clunky, and I often found myself having difficulty getting Arno to either climb into a window or NOT do so. He never seems to completely do that which I want him to do at the time.

Spike TV has held on to The Video Game Awards show for years, with last year's VGX livestream possibly the worst attempt at a serious awards show yet. Geoff Keighley has decided to take matters into his own hands and is producing his own livestream award show, simply called The Game Awards. He polled 28 publications (we were not one of them, grrrrr) for nominations in several categories, and the awards will be doled out on December 5th at 9 p.m. EST. You can attend if you're in Las Vegas or watch from the comfort of your couch on the awards site.

Most of the categories are you usual snuff, but Keighley has added a few new ones, including Best E-Sports Team and Best Fan Creation.

The full list of categories and their nominees are after the break. Yes, we will be holding our own Game of the Year Awards regardless.

Due to recent debacles with the Steam Early Access program, Valve has stepped in to help consumers from buying broken games off Early Access. With Early Access, gamers can purchase and play games before they are complete. It's almost like paying to be part of an open beta, since the feedback helps the game's developers polish and complete it.

Valve is now saying that developers who wish to release their game in Early Access must be absolutely clear that the game is incomplete in the game's description. 

"We work really hard to make sure that customers understand what they are buying when they get an Early Access title on Steam," Valve said. "But we've seen that many of these titles are sold as keys on other websites where there is no explanation of what Early Access is or what the current state of your product is now versus what you hope to achieve...For example, there is no way you can know exactly when the game will be finished, that the game will be finished, or that planned future additions will definitely happen. Do not ask your customers to bet on the future of your game. Customers should be buying your game based on its current state, not on promises of a future that may or may not be realized."

Valve has also set the following additional rules (although some should go without saying, I would think):

  • Don't launch in Early Access if you can't afford to develop with very few or no sales.
  • Make sure you set expectations properly everywhere you talk about your game
  • Don't launch in Early Access without a playable game.
  • Don't launch in Early Access if you are done with development.

I've only bought one game in Early Access, BroForce, and I had a great experience with it. Anyone else have horrible experiences with Early Access games?

Calling all Xbox One owners...(so that's what, 3 of you here?) for Saturday and Saturday only, Sunset Overdrive will be available as a free trial for a full 24 hours. This isn't a demo version or a set trial that will end at a specific point in time.

"This is the full game; players will earn achievements and be able to save how far they progress during that 24 hour span," Larry "Major Nelson" Hryb explained on his blog. "If you decide to purchase the game at a later point, you will be able to start again right where you left off."

If you ignore the side missions, it's possible to finish the entire game in that amount of time.

Sunset Overdrive is a fantastic game for anyone who enjoys the silly, something I harped on in my review.

If you love Assassin's Creed, this is your lucky year. Ubisoft spat out two AC games. We'll be brining you our full review of the next-gen title, Assassin's Creed Unity tomorrow. Before we do, let's dive into what's probably Ubi's final AC game for last-gen consoles. Here's a snip:

Gameplay wise though, this game has almost everything we liked and enjoyed in earlier iterations. Free-running is still very much the key thing here, in addition to carrying out a variety of tasks and upgrading your character and of course going on numerous story-driven missions that help you unravel more mysteries about the eternal conflict between Templars and Assassins. It’s quite exciting to finally have a glimpse into how the other side thinks, and not just merely looking at the world from the Assassin ideology, which hinges on the centuries-old motto ‘everything is permitted’.

ActionTrip Twitter brings me into contact with some wacky and unique game devs, so the page is worth maintaining just for that. Today, while browsing through my notifications I discovered these French dudes who call themselves Artifice Studio. They made a game called Conflicks: Revolutionary Space Battles. Now, it just says that the game is supposed to be releases this Fall for PC, Mac and Linux, but no exact launch date, so I can't be certain if it's out yet. At least I don't think it is.

Anyway, you should check out this trailer:

Fetch me a bucket-full of good morning, stat. Get me some games, stat. Don't give me any games, in fact, because there are too many games, stat. 


Just, some medicine and alcohol, stat. 

This morning post was all about the word 'stat'.
