    Last Minute Gifts Holiday Guide

    I know you probably thought we were all finished with holiday guides, but I’m here to bring you one more for 2010. Today’s guide is all about last minute gifts, for those times when you realize right before the holiday that you’ve either left someone off your list, or you’ve been invited to a party that is participating in a gift exchange. I know a lot of offices participate in some sort of white elephant gift exchange during Christmas parties, and sometimes it’s hard to figure out what gifts to bring along. So, along with the rest of the staff here at GamingAngels, I’m going to give you some ideas of things you can grab to make sure you don’t show up empty-handed. Pretty much everyone on the GamingAngels staff recommended some kind of gift card.  There’s a wide variety of options to choose from, and if you’re looking for

    “Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood” nets free PS3 DLC

    If you’re looking forward to Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood and you haven’t already decided to order it for PlayStation 3 (assuming you have the option), this might just sway you. Today, Ubisoft announced via PlayStation.Blog that the PS3 will be getting additional single-player content on the game’s date of release, November 16. This content focuses on Nicolaus Copernicus, and he’ll have some extra courier, assassination and protection missions available for our hero, Ezio. His part of the storyline revolves around the controversy surrounding his heliocentric theories (AKA, the idea that the Earth revolves around the Sun). PS3 users are getting more with this game right off the bat. How does that make 360 gamers feel? Follow

    Ubisoft reveals “Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood” Collector’s Edition

    Having a fantabulous Collector’s Edition for a sequel seems to be a rite of passage these days. We’ve seen our fair share of them this year. Gone are the days of only adding a metal case and a soundtrack disc to a Collector’s Edition, this year, it’s all about crazy, limited-edition collectibles. Luckily, we can count Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood among these. Not only does $100 get you a copy of the game and a special bonus disc containing video, the soundtrack and more, but you also get a lovely art book, bonus DLC, and one of two jack-in-the-boxes. If you want the “Harlequin” version, pre-order at GameStop, but everyone else that pre-orders gets the “Doctor.” It’s worth mentioning that if you’re in Europe, your offer is a little different. The European “Limited Codex Edition,” described here by Joystiq, looks a lot more interesting, but doesn’t offer any harlequins jumping out

    E3 2010 Hands On – Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood

    Ubisoft didn’t exactly woo us with their press conference on Monday. @gamingangel, @CandiceHatesYou, and I had the chance to pop by their booth this afternoon to try out a demo of Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood’s multiplayer experience. We sat down on shiny, French cubes of white awesomeness (from Ubisoft’s press conference) and were immediately given the reins to the beta Assassin’s Creed love. “I’m throwin’ down, Manda,” Candice said, gearin’ herself up. “It’s on.” Oh yeah, it was on. We were introduced to the overview of Assassin Creed’s lore; our player-characters were Abstergo trainees, sent in to the Animus to counter the assassin uprising led by Ezio Auditore. The tutorial we watched was brief, concise, and still managed to be packed with informational goodies and tips on how to win the match. The goal, like most multiplayer combat matches, was to get the most kills, the least deaths, and the most

    E3 2010: Ubisoft Press Conference

    It was a big day for the Gaming Angels yesterday with three big names and press conferences: Microsoft, EA, and Ubisoft. Ubisoft ushered us in – in an albeit scattered fashion – into the beautiful Los Angeles Theatre. Breath. Taken. I was briefly distracted by the incredible lure of architecture and vintage nostalgia. After we’d settled in and had taken stock of our surroundings, we were ready to start. And by we, I mean the audience. Ubisoft, on the other hand, was not. We waited for close to an hour in a hot, sweaty, smelly theatre, tweeting wildly. When the lights went down, we all uttered a simultaneous, “Finally.” The event started off with an interesting introduction to the Ubisoft’s new venture with Kinect and Tetsuya Mizuguchi, “Child of Eden”. Its game-play, although powered by new technology, was certainly something we’ve seen before: a psychedelic gallivant into a cross between

    Next Assassin’s Creed Title, Brotherhood, Adding Multiplayer Mode

    Time to start up the Animus again. Yesterday, Ubisoft announced details for Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood. It will ship this holiday for 360, PS3, and PC. You play as Ezio once more in a struggle against the Templar Order. He must go to Rome to fight the order, but he also needs an entire brotherhood to take them down. This game is the first in the series to offer multiplayer. To help the Templars, you can use Abstergo to train in the art of assassination. You will have several characters to choose from, with each having their own assassination techniques and weapons. You’ll be able to challenge Assassin’s Creed lovers worldwide in a variety of modes.

    Ubisoft Wants You to Learn About the Next Assassin’s Creed Game from Abstergo

    Ubisoft is inviting you inside Abstergo Industries to get a look at some weapons. There’s also a little game that nets you a prize if you’re in the market for some Assassin’s Creed wallpaper. What’s all of this for? Well, most people are guessing that it’s for an Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood reveal, and the clock in the upper-left is a pretty good confirmation of that. We’ll probably know in about 12 hours then, hm? One guess right now (completely confirmed by the real box art that popped up, by the way) is that the game might actually contain a female playable character. Well, it’s not like anyone who isn’t a lady uses a fan as a weapon anyway, right? (Please prove me wrong with fan art or otherwise. I want amusement.) Follow
