Assassin's Creed 3 Comic-Con 2012 Panel: Five Things We Learned About Ubisoft's Latest Adventure

At Comic-Con 2012, Alex Hutchinson, Creative Director, lead an equally informative and entertaining panel about Assassin's Creed 3. The panel revealed a lot of interesting facts about the development of the game. Here are the five most intriguing things we learned during the Assassin's Creed 3 Comic-Con 2012 panel!

The Weapons Are Going To Be Totally Bad Ass

Setting the game in American naturally changes some aspects of gameplay, and one of those is the weapons available to Conner, the game's Native American lead character. "A native American lead seemed like the perfect fit," Hutchinson explained. Neither British or American, Connor allowed the team to use a main character who was removed fray, but who also had new arsenal of weapons at his disposal. 

Conner is a dual weapons specialist, who wields a tomahawk along with other close combat weapons, and mid-range options like a bow and arrow. There will also be guns, so don't worry. One of the tools that caught my eye during the demo was the Rope Dart. It's sort of like a grappling hook with noose on the end of it. Shooting the rope dart over, say, a tree limb, allows you to hang targets silently. It looks incredibly wicked.

With a Native American lead character, it seems natural to wonder whether or not players will be able to use scalping as a kill. Hutchinson addressed it head on: "We had it in for a very short while. There are some horrible histories of colonial towns offering bounties. When we dug into it deeper, we found it really terrifying. We didn't want the picture on YouTube of 100 dead soldiers all scalped."

So that looks like a big "no."

Transformers: Fall Of Cybertron Screens Are More Than Meets The Eye

Transformers: Fall of Cybertron will offer more than just an epic single player experience. Developer High Moon Studios recently let gamers get their hands on the game's two multiplayer modes, Escalation and Team Deathmatch, and the lovely Nikole Zivalich got to unleash some anger on the Deceptions at Comic-Con 2012.

Here's a snippet from her Transformers: Fall of Cybertron multiplayer preview.

"Escalation gameplay is currency based. Each kill, hit, and assist will help you rank up points. These points can be used to buy ammo, guns and access to more areas. Saving points for the item that’s best for your class, your team, and play-style will be vital to winning each match."

The cast and crew of AMC's zombie thriller The Walking Dead took Comic-Con 2012 by storm, culminating in an impressive panel in Hall H. The 7,000 seat venue was packed Friday afternoon as fans from around the world flocked to hear what the plans were for Season 3.

Dexter

The Dexter panel at Comic-Con 2012 featured Dexter stars Michael C. Hall and Jennifer Carpenter, guest star Yvonne Strahovski, executive producer Scott Buck, and producer Wendy West. Although much was discussed in terms of upcoming Dexter content (We got a brief look at mobile game Dexter 2, and some clips of the first episode of web show "Dexter Early Cuts: All in the Family") the real reason the faithful waited for hours was for a glimpse of Season 7 of the Showtime show.  

When the clip came, it was brief, but very interesting. SPOILERS: Now that Deb knows that Dexter is not the nice guy he seems, what will her reaction be? Are we going to see her turning the killer in to authorities, or can the wily, nice-guy serial killer talk his way out of this situation? It remains to be seen.

The Cast of Game of Thrones Talks About Life, Love and Fake Direwolves At Comic-Con 2012

The hit HBO show Game of Thrones returned in full force to Comic-Con 2012. Panel moderator and Song of Fire and Ice author George RR Martin appeared on stage to thunderous applause and quipped, "There are even more of you than last year!" He was right. The darling of last year's Comic-Con, the Game of Thrones panel moved from the smaller Ballroom 20 to Hall H, the vast 7,000 seat marquee venue.

While there was no new footage shown at the panel, Martin announced that Season 3 of Game of Thrones would premiere March 31, 2012 on HBO, and revealed several new cast members.

With every seat filled and the lights dimmed low, Martin introduced a sizzle reel of highlights from Season 2. It was as awesome as I remembered it being when it first aired. The crowd cheered scenes featuring fan favorites Arya Stark and Faceless Man Jaqen H'ghar, and booed those starring Theon Greyjoy.

Resident Evil: Retribution: Live Webchat With Milla Jovovich

Resident Evil is one of the only video game properties to spawn a truly successful series of major motion pictures, and  director Paul W.S. Anderson, Milla Jovovich and Michelle Rodriguez were on-hand at Comic-Con 2012 to show off the attest flick from the franchise: Resident Evil: Retribution.

This is the series’ fifth installment, and in it, we see a new side of protagonist Alice, a softer side. The trailer shown puts Alice in a pre-apocalypse setting, with a husband, a child and a normal life. Presumably, we'll get to see the breakdown of society, and how a (seeming) suburban mom becomes a cold-blooded, zombie-slaying machine.

Firefly Comic-Con 2012 Panel: Joss Whedon Gets The Band Back Together

Not many one-season TV shows from 10 years ago could cause the kind of reaction Firefly does at Comic-Con, I mean it's not like 5000 people were lined up to see a reunion of the cast of Life with Bonnie. But then, that show wasn't created by the great Joss Whedon, and wasn't put together with the kind of care that Firefly was known for.

The panel hall for the Firefly reunion was packed to the gills with fans, and the stage was packed with stars. Whedon, Jose Melina, Tim Minear, Nathan Fillion, Adam Baldwin, Alan Tudyk, and Summer Glau  were all on hand to reminsice about everyone's favorite sci-fi show.

PlanetSide 2 is a rare breed, it's an MMO and a FPS. During Comic-Con 2012, Kevin Kelly got his hands on the shooter. While we were busy playing Planetside 2 and taking over your base, Sony decided to release this rad cinematic teaser trailer for the game called "Death Is No Excuse."

PlanetSide 2 "Death Is No Excuse" Cinematic Teaser Trailer »


After you watch the video, check out the rest of our hands-on Planetside 2 preview. Here's a snippet:

"Planetside 2 is all about controlling the map, which means capturing and defending. Some locations are small and only have one capture point, but others are large and require you to control several different spots on the map, at which point the location as a whole will slowly come under your control, and is represented by a bar on your HUD. If you're trying to take a location deep inside enemy territory, it will take a long time, but if you're taking somewhere that is bordered by your faction, you'll have an easier time."
