Assassin’s Creed III Epic Gameplay Trailer Released — Watch This, Really

This is amazing. I don’t have to say that every move in the new Assassin’s Creed III is unique, or that it runs a completely revamped and new engine. Or that even Connor, our new Assassin, is torn between both sides of the American Revolutionary War. And not even still, that AC3 comes out on PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Nintendo’s upcoming Wii U, Mac OS X and Windows PCs, all set to be release on October 30th, 2012. The important thing here is that Ubisoft’s Assassin’s Creed III gameplay trailer is after the break, and it’s so awesome you must watch it.

Mozilla And Google Concerned Over Windows RT Browser Limitations

This is a little absurd on Microsoft’s part, once you understand the story. Windows RT, the ARM version of Windows 8 will only support Microsoft’s own Internet Explorer in Windows Classic mode, while other browsers can work in the Metro UI mode. Now, the concern that Mozilla has for Firefox and Google has for its Chrome browser is that if the whole Windows RT is technically Windows 8, why can’t their respective browsers work in both modes of the operating system, rather than having to develop new, Metro-style versions of their browsers. Now, quite honestly this could end in two ways — a lawsuit or a simple resolution from Microsoft. Via: Mozilla Blog, CNET

Notch’s Upcoming 0x10c Game Might Include ‘Hyperplayer’ Mode

This is both incredibly interesting and odd. You can see above (changing your brightness settings may be required) to see all of the game modes of Markus ‘Notch’ Persson’s, creator of Minecraft, upcoming game 0x10c. In it, as we’ve explained plenty of times in the past, you will be in space, when the universe is dying, and your only means of survival is to travel in a spaceship, mine, coding on your built-in 16-bit computer, and do a dozen other adventurous things.

That all being said, do you see the word “Hyperplayer” in there, alongside the usual solo and multiplayer modes? What could it mean? As common with Notch, we’ll know soon enough. Via: Notch’s Twitter

Google’s Social Executive, Vic Gundotra, Tries On Project Glass

Once again, another Google executive takes a pair of Project Glass prototype glasses and tests them out by posting the results on Google+. In this particular scenario, social executive Vic Gundotra tries out the Project Glass and another Googler posts a photo from his direct point-of-view, seen at the second source link. For some interesting reason(s), image quality seems to be greatly improved the last time we saw an image taken with Project Glass. ViaGoogle+ (1)(2)
