Some good fun playing For Honor with friends last night. The struggle is real trying to take control of these zones. However, my Peacekeeper put in some work. I’ve really enjoyed this beta. Might buy For Honor soon after release.

Any dedicated gamer will know how long a game has been in development, and there is a good reason for that. It is because people know that good things take time. Most great games have a three, maybe four year development cycle; in order to not only come up with great ideas but make sure they are fully fleshed out. My biggest pet peeve is the Annualization of games. It is a disservice to both gamers and developers.
When I say the Annualization, it mean the act of annualizing or making something a yearly event. So basically for gaming it means seeing a sequel or spinoff to a game release exactly a year after the previous version.

I have been worn out with the Assassin’s Creed series because of the fact that it comes out yearly. However, there is no denying that the series does improve with each and every installment. The newest game, Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag, seems to be the most interesting Assassin’s game in a long time.
You play as Edward Kenway, Grandfather of Assassin’s Creed 3’s Conner Kenway. Out of all the other Assassins in the series’ past, Edward is already the most likable in my book. He drinks, he gambles, he flirts and completely embodies the Pirate persona. In the developer video, the gameplay seems to be a bit of the same with the exception of different environment’s to sneak around and upgraded Naval combat.
Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag releases November 1.
