? Since I’ve covered all these games before — so many times — I figured I’d best do this as a trifecta. Anyways, here’s the international version of Assassin’s Creed III‘s story trailer, which shows Connor actually killing a pile of Americans near the end. The U.S. version of the trailer shows him killing a single American soldier, which should be a surprise to no one.
? Here’s the launch trailer for Xcom: Enemy Unknown, which makes it look like some shooter and not a turn-based strategy game. I don’t know why they did this, unless it’s to trick the masses into thinking its actually a shooter, which, now that I type it, I realize is a pretty smart strategy.
? Kotaku assembled a four-minute compilation of Resident Evil 6‘s most ridiculous moments. While they are ridiculous, they still aren’t that interesting, somehow.
Robert Bricken is one of the original co-founders of the site formerly known as Topless Robot, and its first editor-in-chief, serving from 2008-12. He brought the site to prominence with “nerd news, humor and self-loathing” as its motto, raising it from total internet obscurity to a readership in the millions, with help from his savage “FAQ” movie reviews and Fan Fiction Fridays. Under his tenure Topless Robot was covered by Gawker, Wired, Defamer, New York magazine, ABC News, and others, and his articles have been praised by Roger Ebert, Avengers actor Clark Gregg, comedian and The Daily Show correspondent John Hodgman, the stars of Mystery Science Theater 3000 and Rifftrax, and others. He is currently the managing editor of io9.com. Despite decades as both an amateur and professional nerd, he continues to be completely unprepared for either the zombie apocalypse or the robot uprising.
