39: Esports, Luke Skywalker, and Gamefly

Episode 39: Gamefly and (?) Assassin’s Creed Trailer Notes

Assassin’s Creed trailer. Kayne West?

  • Music changes the whole tone
  • Movie takes out everything I found enjoyable about the game (parkour, violent takedowns, jumping in hay) Should be rated R to have takedowns violent enough
  • New animus?
  • Best part of AC1 was discovering that Abstergo was Templar and tearing it apart from the inside. This trailer seems to make Abstergo evil from the get-go
  • Biggest problem with videogame movies is the lack of gameplay

Gamefly possible Netflix of videogames?
