Assassin’s creed is one of most anticipated games since it was announced at E3 and CES. The demo’s given were amazing and showed off some awesome technical achievements only possible in next gen gaming. Some of the things that caught my attention after watching the demos were: 1. The size, complexity of the environment, which the player is free to travel through, and interact with. The various cities, kingdoms, etc are to put it simply IMMENSE and everything is actually there, there is no background, or backdrop the player has no access too, everything you see is something you can visit. This was simply not possible in 1st gen games. 2. The crowd dynamics. This game brought to life a real city that has living inhabitants, NPCs walking around, interacting with each other as well as the player. This made the entire world come alive and made the world of Assassins Creed a much more immersive environment.
Looks like the next generation credit cards are going to have some added security. I for one am delighted as there are way too many security issues with the current credit card authentication system. I am always on the look out for shady cashiers taking pictures of my credit cards and drivers license with their cell phones and then having all the information they need to make illegal purchases. This solution will atleast promise that even if someone steals your entire wallet, they wont have enough information to use your credit cards.
