Game Fanatics Show Episode 8 – Fassassin's Creed

by Charles PowersJuly 12, 2012

We had a bit of a break…in that time I managed to beat Spec Ops AND started to watch Game of Thrones, and Ryan travelled to Austin and back, for the Rooster Teeth Expo. In that span of time also, America celebrated her 236th birthday, meaning that if you subtract the two and carry the one, America fuck yeah.

  • In the spirit of patriotism Ryan compiled a list of Top 5 Patriotic games, bet no one has played all give. Check out the full list at www.bit.ly/patrioticgames
  • We’ll announce Spec Ops Winner at the end of the show
  • Brief recap of RTX Overall (We’ll give you our preview after the commercial break)

FanQuest (Fanatical Question)

If you’re in a war, who do you want to be your war bro? That was last week’s question, congrats to  @DontJudgeMyADD for winning the Xbox 360 copy of Spec Ops: The Line.
Thanks to everyone that played; if I had to pick, I’d go with Oasis789’s choice – Niko Bellic and Nathan Drake (Niko with the cell phone cheats ofc).
This week’s question: Real or Fake? Should a video game premier trailer be gameplay or CGI?

And finally, this is not a video game trailer, but is an awesome trailer, especially if you watched any of the RoboCop movies. Judge Dredd, meet your match:

    Thanks for this!

    I recently got the new Game of thrones game. I like it , but I can’t beat valarr in the duel with mors.(ch 11) I tried a lot of things, but I can’t beat him . Do you know any sites where I could find some saved games? One right after the fight with valarr or at least halfway through the game or so, I’m not starting over. My mors uses two handed swords , but valarr crushes me.

    My little sister and I watch this show together, but it is really inappropriate for someone her age. Is there anywhere online I can find a censored version of the TV series Game of Thrones?


  • Franklin Bluth

    I’ve reached level 22 so far and I haven’t unlocked any call signs yet. I’ve unlocked a couple in multiplayer mode but non of them are unlocked in the spec ops call sign menu yet.
    I don’t really care about the call signs since I only play spec ops offline anyways, it just seems strange that I haven’t unlocked a single on of 25 pages of call signs.

  • The Inc

    Okay, first of all, I’m NOT planning on killing someone. I’m writing a book and I just doing my research ’cause one of my characters is an assassin. So, I don’t need to know the exact models, but the types would an assassin carry around? I heard that a silencer would be good or a sniper rifle if my character were to do a far off shooting.
    What type of hand guns or does it not matter?

    I am trying to sit through Game of Thrones..

    I finished the first episode and found it to be kind of dull, with too many stories being crammed into 1 hour… The second episode was a little bit interesting but instead of tying up loose ends they made more sub plots and side stories…

    I am really trying here but how many episodes am I going to have to watch till it really gets good, and lives up to the hype I heard about it.

  • PoohBearPenguin

    So I’ve been reading and hearing great things about Game of Thrones from various sources, so I started watching it on Xfinitytv. I’m now three episodes in and the show still hasn’t piqued my interest. How long did it take for the show to grab you? Were you a fan of A Song of Ice and Fire novels before watching the show? Should I start with the books first?

  • morbiusdog

    Hey, I just got A storm of swords parts 1&2,

    I’ve followed the show so far from the beginning, so will a storm of swoards pick up where Season 2 left off?
    Thanks :)

  • Matthew David

    I have a 1996 harpercollins/voyager first edition, first print hardcover copy of george r r martins a game of thrones, really good condition with a perfect unclipped dust jacket and im just wondering how much this is worth? Bantam book’s version is readily available but still going for good prices but my version seems really rare so any ideas on price would be appreciated.

    I’ve read all the books and it doesn’t say. Does he know they are lovers, or does he think it’s a lie.

  • nick s

    Just wanted to know, that’s all. I love that TV series and books! 😀

    What players/coaches of the NFL resemble Character of Game of Thrones?
    In my opinion:
    Tywin Lannister = Bill Belichick
    Jaimie = Tom Brady
    Cersei = Gisele
    Ned Stark = Peyton Manning (similar neck injuries)
    Rob = Eli Manning
    Theon = Plaxico Burres
    Staniss = Jim Harbaugh
    Renly = Mark Sanchez
    Jon Snow = Joe Flacco
    Robert Baratheon= Rex Ryan (same bravado)
    Loras= Tim Tebow
    Barristan = Tom Coughlin (badass as hell)
    The Manning fit almost perfet as the Starks:
    Ned = Peyton; Archie = Rickard Stark; Brandon Stark = Cooper; Benjen = Eli.
    The Mountain= Big Ben (“rapish” similarities)
    The Hound = Ray Lewis

    Thank you for any other informative web site. Where else could I am getting that kind of information written in such an ideal means? I’ve a challenge that I am just now working on, and I’ve been at the look out for such information.

    I’m planning to buy an Android phone but my budget limits me to phones with 240×320 resolutions. Now, I’m a bit hesitant to buy such phone because I think that it has the most limited number of apps and games available. Yet, I really want to buy an Android as soon as possible.

    I wanted an i phone, but the prices to use it each month is just too much, so i found the samsung intercept by virgin mobile. I have an Ipod touch, so I was wondering how different is the android market then the apple market? And i checked there website, so i saw a few apps i have on my ipod already so that’s good. And does the phone act like the ipod/ iphone?


    i want to download android apps to my pc from android market for my android device. any possibility? i don’t want to download using my android device.

  • Dom L

    Currently I have an app which works on Android 1.6 and above. I’d rather not have to rewrite a separate application for Honeycomb and I can’t find much help anywhere. Is there an easy way for me to adapt it to work on Android 3.0+ with a proper tablet interface rather than just magnifying my Android-phone interface. Thanks!

  • brincks26

    I’m a 16 year old boy who is interested and inspired by another kid who is 14 and made an iphone app. So far he has made millions on his apps. I wanna create some apps and I figured the android market would probably be easiest way. What does it take to develop apps. Also would it help if I had an android phone?

  • sick_mick_101

    I would like to take part in android development. how and what should i know if i want to take part?



    I heard that there is an app in the Android Market that can be downloaded to make your Droid and computer internet one.

    Is this true? How does it work? What is it called?


  • Milk84

    I just got a motorola cliq and have seen articles all over advertising the new update to google maps allowing navigation but when i go to google mobile it says to access the android market through my phone and download the latest google maps but when i do that google maps does not appear in the market. Is this becuase i am not on the Droid or is there some other problem that is not allowing me to find this new update?
