Assassin's Creed tries to be a series about history, but over the last decade it hasn't been afraid to get a little loose with that. We've had a tyrannical King George (Washington), and a bizarre hunt for Jack the Ripper, but it's the series latest dalliance with fiction - Curse of the Pharoahs - that's become my favourite historical diversion.
Infamous YouTuber Logan Paul started a Twitch channel yesterday, and he reached 100,000 followers without streaming once. If you go to the channel right now, the chat alternates between spamming racial slurs and ascii penises. Following the Fortnite bandwagon has turned into a mess for the Paul brothers.
On a snowy day last week, in a fancy hotel suite in Manhattan, I controlled Kratos in his newest PlayStation adventure. The new God of War is out in a month, yet the public has seen very little of it. The game is a drastic stylistic departure from the previous games in the series, so I figured you all might have some questions. I asked you on Twitter to ask me about the game.

It can be difficult, as a jaded adult, to appreciate a great fairy tale - one where the hero always wins and naivety is a character strength rather than something to grow out of. So it is with Ni no Kuni II. But if you can look past this game's more childish tendencies, you'll find a fairy tale worth experiencing.
Kratos rests his palm on the trunk of a tall birch tree, its bark marked with a bright golden handprint. He stands in quiet, melancholy contemplation. No longer a virile young warrior overflowing with destructive fire, fine crow’s feet mark his face, his strength now staid. His enemies are long defeated and the surrounding forest lies cold and still, but the weight of his bloody past has settled on his shoulders. He lifts the Leviathan axe and hacks into the trunk, a mighty weapon made mundane.
This is a new God of War, and though I barely scratched the surface in the hour and a half I spent with him, what I experienced was promising.
As cool as it is to see the Parr family kicking arse and taking names as the Incredibles, it's just as fun (if not more so) to see them all fighting to blend in with normal society and hide the fantastic powers that make them superheroes. Newly announced comic books from Dark Horse will focus on exactly that.
It is a rite of passage for parents to dress their young children in humiliating outfits. So at a God of War preview last Wednesday, I sat down with Aaron Kauffman, Senior Community Manager and Marketing Producer at Santa Monica Studio, and asked my most pressing God of War question: Will I be able to dress my son as a potato?
Happy Tuesday. Let's start the day with a piping hot cup of yesterday: Nvidia Plan To Define The Next 20 Years Of Graphics With Real-Time Ray Tracing • Girl Shot In The Head By Her Brother During Argument Over Video Game Controller • Street Fighter II Sure Looks Inspired By This 1975 Charles Bronson Movie
