Assassin's Creed III could very well be the first game introducing the taunt "You just got tomhawked!" into multiplayer lingo.

Video Blips:

• This Assassin's Creed III gameplay trailer boasts a rather dry narration accompanying Connor's fluid movement and stunning kills. Then again, a half-Native American, tree-swinging snow ninja can't please everyone.

Continue after the break for the new cultures in play in Civilization V: Gods & Kings and a confidence-draining teaser for Amnesia: A Machine For Pigs.


• Members of Civilization V: Gods & King's development team discuss presenting additional playable factions in new and interesting ways. This evidently includes suiting up leaders in peacock hats and Dutch formal wear.

• This teaser for Amnesia: A Machine For Pigs isn't so scar — oh God, oh God, HIDE. Pigs' predecessor, Amnesia: The Dark Descent, still holds the record for "fastest uninstall" in my Steam library.
