Living the Creed isn’t as easy as it used to be. The Templars have made a huge push, the Brotherhood is close to extinction. The Templars believe them, our fellow Assassins finished. Their unchecked grab for power is becoming dangerous for more than just the long though dead Assassins. They have their sights set on a new land - America. They see in it the potential for a new base of ordered control. What better time for a new Assassin to come forth from the shadows, to protect not only his people but all free people?
Setting the stage for Assassin’s Creed 3 was certainly no easy feat after gamers flocked to Ezio Auditore da Firenze and his blood soaked quest for vengeance. Over the course of three games, he became the mascot for the franchise and a hard act to follow. Most of us were excited to see how Ubisoft could pull off not just a new protagonist but a Native American one at that. Rushing through the forest, hunting all manner of prey, all set against the backdrop of the American Revolution. We’ve had our hands on the game for couple weeks now and while this by no means a traditional review, it gives you geeks a great look at Assassin’s Creed 3.
Hit the break…
Leaked Crysis 3 Screens Show You’ll Need More Than A Fancy Bow

Crytek have always been at the forefront of making gorgeous looking games with their exceptional CryEngine game engines. If you coud run the original Crysis on your PC it was definitely something to show off. It seems from these screen shots taken from the personal site of Pierre-Yves Donzallaz, the senior lighting artist for Crysis 3, that Crysis 3 is going to be no exception to Crytek’s list of graphically demanding games.
The screen shots were uploaded by Donzallaz but he then quickly took them down, but not before Polygon, the Avengers of video game journalism, managed to grab them. They show what we’ve already seen from the Crysis 3 teaser trailer- New York has become a ruinous tropical rainforest full of machines and mercenaries alike. Crysis 3 is set to launch on PC, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3 in February 2013.
New York Files Suit Against Sprint For Alleged Tax Fraud
Last Updated on Friday, 20 April 2012 07:13 Written by Laddie13 Friday, 20 April 2012 07:00
Reuters is reporting that New York has filed a lawsuit against Sprint Nextel Corp for over $300 million. The carrier is accused of tax fraud for allegedly not collecting or paying more than $100 million in taxes over the last seven years. The complaint was filed Thursday in the New York State Supreme Court by Attorney General Eric Schneiderman. The suit is the first one to be filed under the state’s False Claims Act and could end up costing Sprint three times the amount it’s accused of not paying. New York requires mobile phone companies to collect and pay sales tax for mobile services and has since 2002. Schneiderman is claiming that since 2005 Sprint has underpaid and falsified records in an effort to choke out their competition by offering cheaper rates.
Sprint has issued the following statement:
“This complaint is without merit and Sprint categorically denies the complaint’s allegations. We have collected and paid over to New York every penny of sales taxes on mobile wireless services that we believe our customers owe under New York state law. With this lawsuit, the Attorney General’s office is claiming New York consumers, who already pay some of the highest wireless taxes in the country, should pay even more. We intend to stand up for New York consumers’ rights and fight this suit.”
