For hours -- sometimes days on end -- we’d spend our weekends and sneak in school nights to play video games. It was all for the love of adventure, our constant need to win, and often times we’d fallen in love with the characters we controlled. Yeah, some of them were animals, but that really didn’t matter when it came to matters of the heart.

The new trailer for "Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag" gives us a little bit of the pirate captain's origin story as he rejects his British masters for a life on the high seas, stealing stuff and shooting at the Navy.
Eurogamer's on the ground in Silverstone where Sony has announced that the latest entry in the "Gran Turismo" series will be out later this year for the PS3.

The creators of Cartoon Network's "Adventure Time" don't bury the series' 8-bit inspirations too deep: it's not uncommon for the series to play with the tropes of classic dungeon crawlers as animated hero Finn goes on whatever monster-slaying, treasure-hunting quest is set before him that week, set to a chiptune soundtrack.

Anyway, that's all to say that D3 Publisher's announcement of their second "Adventure Time" game is a welcome one. Instead of going handheld as they did with the "Zelda II"-like "Adventure Time: Hey Ice King! Why’d You Steal Our Garbage?!," this fall's "Adventure Time: Explore the Dungeon Because I DON’T KNOW!" will be headed to consoles and the PC.
