Ever since reaching the American War of Independence, the Assassin's Creed series has had an interesting relationship when it comes to British characters. More often than not resorting to show them in a more villainous light (to the point where trailers for Assassin's Creed: Rogue place clear emphasis upon how the Templars are wholeheartedly backing the Empire), they were often pushed to be associated with the antagonists but now things have taken a turn for the downright bizarre. To the surprise of many, the upcoming Assassin's Creed: Unity has repeatedly featured extremely noticeable British accents among Paris' population, from the commoners to the noblemen rather than native French. In response to this criticism, the series' creative director Alex Amancio had this to say on Ubisoft's blog:


“The idea is that the Animus is translating everything into the language you’re playing in. That’s why, since you’re an Anglophone, you’re hearing all the dialogue and cinematics in English. It would really make no sense for there to be a French accent because that would mean that this French character is trying to address you in accented English. Everyone in the game is not trying to speak English for your benefit.”

If you think the court ruling against of Net Neutrality is nothing to worry about: Think.  Again.

It's like this: The internet operates as a free open space, and the only sites you're not allowed to visit are the ones you specifically block.

So let's compare that to cable television services.  Basically, you pay extra fees for the amount of channels you have access to depending on your purchased package.  And we all know how ridiculous cable companies are with their services and what they offer in terms of channels and programming.

...

Even now, long before we have seen the first signs of any trailer or hint of footage, the rebooted Fantastic Four has been caught in a storm of controversy. With many claiming an apparent lack of respect for the source material, a direction which apparently goes directly against the team it's supposed to promote and Marvel itself allegedly taking ire at this, things have not been good. They also just got much, much worse.


Leaked onto the internet yesterday via Geek Pride (with the page now removed for unknown reasons) the fandom was shown the first look at Doctor Doom himself. These images can now be found on The Escapist, but reaction has not been positive among many fan groups or even casual superhero fans. Going with a distinctly metallic organic look, Doom himself looks far less like the regal, armoured form fans are used to and more a misshapen blob of cooling metal. While fans are baffled at the exact reason behind this, it's another indicator that the Ultimate universe is having far more influence on this project than the mainstream Four.

This is really hard-hitting news for me. This was just announced today that actor / comedian Robin Williams has committed suicide and passed away.

Robin Williams was a big part of the lives of many people here on this site. There is no doubt that many of us have some connection to Robin Williams through our childhoods and even to our adulthood, Robin Williams has been there.

Some of us might know him from Disney's Aladdin as Genie, some of us might know him as Peter Pan from Hook, some of us might know him from numerous other films he has been in like Dead Poets Society, Mrs. Doubtfire and numerous other films, the list goes on. Robin Williams has been in so many films regardless of which ones we know him best from, he has been in many films.

If you think the news of Net Neutrality being officially ruled against is nothing to worry about, Think.  Again.

Comcast is in the process of tying Netflix's hands behind it's back by forcing them to pay exorbitant fees in order to provide decent speed streaming to their customers.  When Netflix gets fees, you get fees.  If any of you use Netflix, you can be sure your monthly fees are about to skyrocket.

This is just the beginning people.  Comcast is only the first in the chain of cable companies to take advantage of broadband internet services, but it is probably the worst.

Hi TGWTG, and welcome to spectrum-pulse, where I take a deeper, more in-depth look into music, movies, art, and culture.

Today, in a Special Comment, I discuss the disquieting aftermath of the Elliot Rodger shooting and deliver a digression that's been long-in-coming.
