Assassin's Creed Movie Gets a 2015 Release Date

Ubisoft's Best Selling Series' silver screen adaptation, written by Michael Lesslie, has now got a official release date. The movie as per Box Office Mojo has a release date of May 22, 2015. As of now, there is information about just one actor associated with the movie, Michael Fassbender , who will also co-produce through his DMC Film production company.
Jean-Julien Baronnet, CEO of Paris-based Ubisoft Motion Pictures, had said in an interview with Variety that
"Michael Fassbender was our first choice"
The movie with its current release date, will opens just weeks after Marvel's The Avengers 2.
Earlier Ubisoft was in talks with Sony to create Assassins Creed based films, but the talks failed and Ubisoft ultimately invested into Ubisoft Motion Pictures. By controlling more of the creative through Ubisoft Motion Pictures, Ubisoft hopes it doesn’t end up with another “Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time,” which was adapted by Disney and Jerry Bruckheimer. The movie earned a disappointing $335 million worldwide, with just $91 million of that in the U.S. last year, ending any franchise dreams.

Exciting Indie Games We Can't Wait to Play

These days most of the games that we get to know about prominent gaming sources are from big Game Design/Development house, like EA, Ubisoft and many other well established Game Design houses.
But this is changing with many independent and small Game Design/Development houses growing with the help of Kickstarter fund or crowd sourcing. Which reports on its stats page, the success of these small Development houses who have been pledged more than $122 million. Though the amount is like loose change in billions of dollar worth gaming industry but it suggests that players are looking for a change, are also willing to go a extra mile to help see the change.
We just checked out few of the projects which are underway and were amazed by many, in their perspective  and their Game play design. Here is a list of few of these projects, which we would love to siege our hands on.

Planetary Annihilation

Planetary Annihilation, as its developer describe is
"RTS for the Next Generation"
 And with more than 44000 backers of the project and an awesome trailer video this project just seems to revolutionalize the scale of the Real-Time Strategy games. The title takes the Map level of the RTS game that was restricted to Big / Huge in game like Age of Empires to Galactic level, with simple looking robot armies to control.
The video shows the huge scale on which the game can be played, colonizing planets, their satellites and even asteroids, which can then be smashed against the planet to cause... Planetary Annihilation.



Game features Multiplayer with up to 40 players or Solo Play options, with no pre-set unit caps.
 John Comes, one of the game's designers also said in the video, "We're not shooting for realism, we're shooting for awesome".
The game is planned to be released Summer 2013.

Banished

Banished is city building strategy game, where the goal is survival in a harsh wilderness instead of amassing an army of destruction. As the title already suggests, player control a group of exiled travelers who have decided to restart their lives in a new land.
The objective of the game is to keep population alive and grow it into a successful culture. Options for feeding people include hunting, gathering, agriculture, trade and fishing. But the sustainable practices should be taken to survive in long term.

Banished doesn't has a skill tree and any structure can be built at anytime provided the resources are available. There is also no money also, instead the resources can be traded for other resources on arrival of trade vessel. The success and failure of the town depends on the player's management of risks and resources.
The game is scheduled for release in mid to late this year.

Reus

Reus is a god game in which the player takes control of nature through the hands of three mighty giants. With the help of these giants the player controls various natural resources like water, mineral resources and forests, allowing terraforming, creation of life, control of weather and genetic manipulation. 
The only thing that can't be controlled is the mankind, with all their virtues and all their vices. It' the responsibility of the player to strive balance in which man is not overpowered by nature and nature does not fall to man's greed.
The game is set in a unique 2D art style which is mostly never used in god games.
The game is scheduled for release in second quarter of this year.

Yes Man


Director - Peyton Reed
Starring - Jim Carrey, Zooey Deschanel and Bradley Cooper
Yes Man is a story of a guy Carl Allen (Jim Carrey) who say NO to everything and NO to a good future until the day he visits a personal development program based on a very simple idea "say YES to everything". The movie is an excellent feel-good comedy with an outstanding turn from Jim Carrey, Zooey Deschanel & Terence Stamp. A must watch.

Social Marketing and Website Management Tool

During the development of the website one pointer to self was how to broadcast our site over variety of Social Media platforms and how keep track over a huge amount of analytic data about views along with the data from variety of different search engines.
Along with that there were also other analytic data the we would like to view like comments on our articles at our site using DISQUS as well as on the social media, but that proved to be a difficult task altogether as each of these services had different front-ends to retrieve the data. So we looked over some popular, kind of free, alternatives that could reduce our workload and aggregate all the data.
But all we could find out in our days of research that there are two categories of applications available one for Social Marketing and another for the Website analytic so we decided to get our hands down and create the application overlapping these two categories. 
We have started with the initial analysis and started development on the same with a limited subset of the features we are thinking upon.
More update and screenshots of the development version soon.

Looper Joe (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) is a man working for a group who sent people blindfolded back in time from the year 2074 and Joe have to kill them. But when he faces itself from future will he kill himself? Looper is based on this plot and about why old Joe (Bruce Willis) is sent back in time to been killed. Looper is slow pace movie and after a point of time you will feel that movie is streching too long,but the action is good and acting by Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Bruce Willis.

Carry on Jatta is a Punjabi romantic comedy movie (Rom-Com) in which Jass (Gippy Grewal) fell in love with Mahie (Mahie Gill) and to marry her he say some lies and these lies get him into a bigger mess with his family. The acting by Jass's friend Honey (Gurpreet Guggi) is good and the comedy in the movie is new but in the end movie get very boring. But it is still worth watching and better than hindi comedy movie.
