Assassin's Creed - in Istanbul!
You all know how crazed I am about Assassin's Creed, right? Well, triple that and add 200% - because the next installment, Revelations, is set in Istanbul -Constantinople, circa 1400.

*Insert enormous grin.*

So today I'm sharing the teaser trailer from Ubisoft, but first you need to watch this AC parody with Johnny Depp from The Tourist. (I knew that movie was good for something. ;) LMAO!)

Here's one of the AC4 teaser trailers - no sound - that are circulating around the web. I said Istanbul/Constantinople above, because I'm not sure how the story line is going to play out. The trailer has both the Byzantine double eagle and the Ottoman Tugra of the Sultan. Also, the key date for the name change is 1453. We don't know the exact timeline the Assassin's Creed alternate history will use, even if Ubisoft gives us a few specific dates. Looks like we might get Ezio and Altair in this game too. I have no problem with that. :)

Another cool game that's partially set in Istanbul is Uncharted 2: Among Thieves. The main character, Nathan Drake, spends some time there tracking down the Çintemani stone. (I <3 çintemani in a big way. Maybe I should write a post about it...I'm thinking of renaming my blog after it actually. Methinks these two thoughts are serendipitous.) And maybe you didn't realize it, but once upon a time, Johnny Depp's hat found some Turkish sailors. Right before the kraken ate them. (Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest). Ooops!
