Actually the fifth game in the main series, Assassin’s Creed III follows an alternate history in which some guy with a memory machine has some past-life regression and discovers he’s like, the most important person ever, in the history of history. Sounds like most past-life stories.

Broom-nesia

Somewhere along the way, Desmond Miles, the guy who’s all these other guys in the past, forgot how to hit people with brooms. He could do it during the Renaissance, but not during the American Revolution. Pity, since there’s an infinite supply of brooms in the New World.

Phantom Pistol

One of the fancy new features in AssCreed III is the ability to dual-wield weapons. Except when you fast-travel with dual pistols, you’ll sometimes lose one along the way (whatever is in the right holster). Sometimes, it may even change your second pistol to an entirely different gun.

Founding Führer

This is the only significant game in the history of gaming, to receive an expansion in which George Washington, one of the Founding Fathers of the United States, is essentially Hitler. A close second may be Civilization V, which also somehow turns Ghandi into a giant warmongering maniac.

We’ve had an intern look at DmC – Ninja Theory’s reboot of Devil May Cry – from the perspective of someone new to the series, and our own Matthew Vice gave it his review which you can read right here.

The “nu Dante”, redesigned from the ground up to appeal to a “younger, more hip” audience of 18 to 19 year olds who like meth (I kid, I kid), lacks the charming white hair of the series’ original protagonist. During the opening mission, Ninja Theory even mocks the idea by having a white mop land on Nu Dante’s head, and him shrugging it off saying “Never in a million years…”

A Million Years Later…

If you complete DmC on any difficulty, then go to Skins/Perks on the Mission Star screen at the main menu, you can unlock the classic white hair for all missions and cutscenes.

Known as Second Country: The Queen of White Sacred Ash in Japan, Studio Ghibli and Level-5’s collaborative efforts have resulted in a wonderfully imaginative and fun role-playing game. The opening ten minutes can get a little sad, but don’t worry. We’re sure it all works out in the end.

Game Not Over

When the credits roll, don’t just quit or turn the game off. At the end of the credit roll, it’ll ask you if you want to make a cleared save file. Once you do, load it up for access to a post-game world with extra content.

Dressed To Impress

Oliver is one of the few RPG protagonists who sensibly switches to warm clothing in a snowy environment.
