What happens when you mix WiNGSPANTT, PC gaming, and a whole bunch of newbies together in a game of ACB? It’s not pretty, but in today’s video, WiNG puts the “laughter” back in “slaughter.”

Binerexis was telling me we needed to leverage social media more, so I figured what better way to do so than continuous streams of bribes? In addition to our ongoing Twitter-based free games giveaway, I’d like to also announce some other fun promotions. And since I’ve already taken the liberty of doing so on my [...]
By now, everyone should know what the term metagame means, but for the uninformed, it generally applies to the current state of stategic focus in a specific game’s community. For example, “4 Gate” Protoss pushes are a dominating factor in Starcraft 2 currently, so much so that most Protoss players will employ 4 Gate themselves to counteract it. On the opposite end of the spectrum, the two point conversion is such an infrequently used tactic in football that no defending team ever considers defending against it, even though actual point-after kicks are rarely blocked.
In Parts 1, 2, and 3 of our Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood Multiplayer guide, we looked at every friggin’ skill in the game, from the lowly (and terrible) Sprint Boost to the oh-so-tantalizing Poison. With all the game’s abilities covered, there still remain two more aspects of each player’s loadout that should be taken into consideration: Perks and Streaks.
Just as with abilities, so too can players equip two of each category within Perks and Streaks. Perks offer passive or situational abilities, while Streaks grant bonuses if a player is doing particularly well or poorly. While these loadout choices aren’t as important to your overall strategy as abilities are, they can create major advantages in many situations.
Let’s see what kind of mayhem we can get ourselves into.
With Ubisoft’s latest Brotherhood DLC available for about a week now, I’ve had an opportunity to delve into the new multiplayer modes, Escort and Assassinate. Don’t misunderstand; the single player experience of Brotherhood (and its predecessors) is exceptionally entertaining, but with tight work constraints and demands from my legions dozens of fans to produce Assassin’s Creed videos, I’ve yet to set aside ample time to explore the game’s single player offerings. As far as I’ve been told, they include an interesting story addition, the gambling games at the thieves’ den, and the ability to punch mimes in the face.
Yesterday, Binerexis and I had the opportunity to put our skills to the test not only in front of dozens of Xbox Live strangers, but also in front of a live audience at LiveStream.com. Behind a barrage of heckling, taunting, and an uncomfortable amount of praying, two top tier titans squared off to find out who would triumph.
In the end, I did manage to take the gold medal, finishing the two-hour marathon session with a lead of 13,360 points. But the real winner wasn’t me; it was one lucky reader who insisted on keeping a sad meme alive, wagering I’d secure victory with a lead of over 9,000 points.
