Assassin's Creed 3: Liberation

Aveline de Grandpré is the star of the new PlayStation Vita title Assassin's Creed 3: Liberation. Does the first female lead in an Assassin's Creed game live up to expectations? Find out in our review. Here's a taste:

In action, Aveline moves fluidly up and across buildings, and unleashes carefully choreographed attacks capable of killing multiple enemies with just a few simple button taps. Performing these vicious takedowns is made even easier thanks to the new “mark and execute-ish”, multi-kill feature which lets you freeze the action and tap on up to four enemies in the heat of battle and automatically dispose of them in worry-free, cinematic fashion). The combat never really reaches the point where you feel like you need this kind of assistance, but it’s quite a sight if you remember to use it.

MIT Game Lab researchers have been developing an open-source game called A Slower Speed of Light that simulates the relativistic effects of slowing down the speed of light. The first-person game has players navigate through a 3D space filled with orbs that reduce the speed of light in increments if you pick them up. It's a bit complicated, so I'll let the MIT researchers explain:

"Visual effects of special relativity gradually become apparent to the player, increasing the challenge of gameplay," said MIT Game Lab. "These effects, rendered in realtime to vertex accuracy, include the Doppler effect (red- and blue-shifting of visible light, and the shifting of infrared and ultraviolet light into the visible spectrum); the searchlight effect (increased brightness in the direction of travel); time dilation (differences in the perceived passage of time from the player and the outside world); Lorentz transformation (warping of space at near-light speeds); and the runtime effect (the ability to see objects as they were in the past, due to the travel time of light).

Here's a video of A Slower Speed of Light in action.
