This would be the prequel to the first two games in the Arkham series, then.

New Iron Man 3 Trailer

iron man 3Here it is folks: a new trailer for Iron Man 3.  The latest sneak peek of Tony Stark’s life post-Avengers reaffirms Iron Man’s restlessness, sprinkled with hints of PTSD.  A little more light is shed on Sir Ben Kingsley’s The Mandarin, who gives off a “Osama Bane Laden” vibe.  We are also given a closer look at Don Cheadle’s role as Rhodey’s new Iron Patriot persona.  Though the Iron Man and Dark Knight film series are clearly different animals, this new trailer definitely has a taste of The Dark Knight Rises to it.

Check out the trailer below and sound off your opinion!

Far Cry 3 Review

Far Cry 3 is an open world first-person shooter video game developed by Ubisoft Montreal in conjunction with Ubisoft Massive, Ubisoft Red Storm, Ubisoft Reflections, and Ubisoft Shanghai and published by Ubisoft for Microsoft Windows, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
Far Cry 3 is a first-person shooter, which also features role-playing game elements including experience points, skill trees, and a crafting system. The player has the ability to take cover behind objects to break enemies’ lines of sight and also to peek around and over cover and blindfire. The player also has the ability to perform silent “takedowns” by performing melee attacks from above, below, or close behind. The game’s narrative director, Jason Vandenberghe, said that the story mode map is around ten times larger than in the game’s previous installments, indicating that it is still an open world sandbox game. Players are given the ability to survey and plan out their attacks with stealth takedown combinations and also tag enemies with the camera in order to track their movement once they break the player’s line of sight. Jason Brody is on vacation with a group of friends on a tropical island in the Pacific when they decide to take a skydiving trip. But they all land in different parts of a pirate-infested island, and are taken prisoner by a pirate lord named Vaas. Vaas plans to extort ransom money from their parents, then sell them into slavery. Jason escapes, and his mission is to save his friends all the while finding out who he truly is inside.

Set in the fictional industrial city of Dunwall, modeled after Victorian London, Dishonored follows Corvo Attano, a legendary bodyguard to the Empress who is framed for her murder and forced to become an assassin to seek revenge on those who conspired against him. Attano is aided in his quest by the Outsider, a powerful being who imbues him with magical abilities. Several actors provide voice work for the game, including Susan Sarandon, Brad Dourif, Carrie Fisher, Billy Lush, Lena Headey and Chloë Grace Moretz.

The game is played from a first-person perspective and allows the player to tackle a series of assassination missions in a variety of ways, with an emphasis on player choice.
