So as you can tell if you follow us on Twitter or Facebook its been a jam packed couple of weeks both professionally and personally.November is a pretty busy time of year for the video game industry and as such you guys get more content to skim through to decide what games to spend your time on. That takes care of the professional aspect; personally I have been back home with my folks helping get the new family business up and running so I been a bit less vigilant with my gaming news, reviews and internet randomness. Regardless gaming will remain a priority and I will do what I can for the few faithful followers that need me and this blog of sorts. So bear with me and continue to share and enjoy all the content brought to you on our TwitterFacebook and Blog pages. With that being said lets jump into today's game: Assassin's Creed: Revelations...

Assassin's Creed: Revelations is a video game in the Assassin's Creed franchise developed and published by Ubisoft Montreal. The game was released for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 on November 15, 2011. For Microsoft Windows, the game is delayed until December 2, 2011. Throughout the course of the game, the three protagonists from the previous games are featured: Ezio, Altair, and Desmond. It has been announced that it is the last game to feature Ezio Auditore da Firenze and the final game to be set in the Renaissance era. The game follows the series' standard open-world gameplay. New gameplay additions include an item called the hookblade, which can be used to zipline across the city or grab enemies to yank them in for a combo attack. The hookblade reportedly speeds up navigation by around 30 percent. Along with the hook-blade, Ezio also has 300 different bomb variations at his disposal which are to be crafted. In terms of customization and versatility, this Assassin's Creed game is the most verse delivering a barrage of ways for the player to shape and sculpt himself as an assassin.

The multiplayer function is protected by the Uplay Passport system on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 which requires a code for access. Codes are included in all new copies of the game, but are tied to a single Uplay account. This means that players who purchased their copy second hand, will need to purchase a new code to access the multiplayer. Codes are available for purchase from within the game menu. This is a seemingly growing trend with most games as a means to fight against piracy and make extra money off the sales of used games as a whole. Whether good or bad, only time will tell as more games seek out better means of protecting their itellectual property.

This game is worth the time, effort and money that you will end up spending on it. The game is a very successful franchise and well presented in its entirety. The game itself and its fan-base has grown exponentially with each iteration and is a testament to the appeal of the franchise. From the character development, to the combat system, to the story progression these are just a few of the many notable things about the Assassin's Creed franchise. This is also evident in the fan service given with their release of many packaged variants of the game. There are several different limited editions of Assassin's Creed Revelations. The Animus, Collector's and Special editions are available on all platforms and only available in Europe, Australia and New Zealand, while the Signature Edition and The Ultimate Bundle is only available in North America through GameStop for all platforms.
