These two dudes were playing their favourite video game, Assassin’s Creed, and debating over the authenticity of their character’s pain tolerance. The animated character bounds over buildings and topples gracefully to the ground into a pile of hay like it’s no biggie. Wouldn’t that hurt?! They decided to take a leap of faith — literally — and have one of them jump of the roof of their two story house to test out the theory.
The catastrophic result is what happens when you’re bored at home for the holidays. The hilarious parody video was uploaded to andrewmfilms.

While his owners were playing Assassin’s Creed, this tabby cat discovered a black dog mysteriously walking around on the big screen TV. Who was this dog and where did he come from? The cat kept an eye on him and helplessly followed the dog wherever he went. Things got really wack when he left the screen. WHERE DID HE GO?

Just because the guys from Epic Meal Time are from Canada, doesn’t mean they can’t indulge in some good old 4th of July meals. With the help of Assassin’s Creed, the guys hunted some real life game and cooked it outside, over the fire in their presumably sweaty colonial costumes.
The prize course is an American flag made entirely of meat, consisting of 73,559 carlories. They also make a bacon-bunny-deer sandwich that’s essentially a gigantic glob of meat in bread.
A creepy George Washington also makes a surprise appearance to announce the end of the war. It’s the kind of patriotic sentiment that brings a tear to your eyes.

Ubisoft has released the first of three Assassin’s Creed promotional short films on the World Wide Web via YouTube.
Developed by Ubisoft Digital Arts as well as Ubisoft’s Hybride Technologies (yes, the visual masterminds behind the hit films Sin City and 300) have unleashed a live action introduction into the world of Assassin’s Creed 2. Staring the game’s main character Ezio’s Father, Giovanni Auditore da Firenze. With a mix of live action combined with CGI backdrops and special effects the films will tell of the growth of Assassin’s Creed’s protagonist and how he came to be where he is now.
The film series will entice gamers to get more involved in this upcoming title (which by the way, I had the chance to demo and was AMAZING) and give them a feel of the Italian Renaissance period they will be playing in. With Assassin’s Creed 2 coming out November 17th, 2009, this little taste will have you begging for more.
And what’s this? We have the Assassin’s Creed Lineage video embedded right here after the break! CLICK MORE to see it! Read more…
Ubisoft raised its fiscal 07-08 outlook based on better than expected sales from key franchises.
Ubisoft expects full-year 07-08 sales to reach ?920 million (roughly $1.45 billion) rather than the previously estimated ?875 million (roughly $1.37 billion). Fourth quarter expectations were also raised from ?165 million to ?210 million.
Yves Guillemot, President and CEO of Ubisoft stated in a press release, “As expected, 2008 is off to be a record year for the videogame market and our games have performed remarkably well in this context. Assassin?s Creed and our Games For Everyone brands continued their strong performance and Tom Clancy?s Rainbow Six Vegas 2 had a better than expected start.?
A nearly-two-million-copies-sold-in-two-weeks better than expected start. And with the Tom Clancy license under its belt, Ubisoft has a very comfortable future ahead of them.
