A few video game trailers hit the web today and I can (almost) guarantee you’re excited for at least one of them. One is the hotly anticipated Assassin’s Creed III, another is the final DLC pack to cap off Batman: Arkham City, Harley Quinn’s Revenge, and the third is a Transformers game based off the awesome ‘toon, Transformers Prime. Okay, I’ll admit I might be the only one excited about Transformers Prime, but I’m telling you guys, the show is superb and I hope so is the game.

Let’s check out this Assassin’s Creed III trailer which provides us our first look at some gameplay.

Holy. Shit. I feel more patriotic already. I was already hooked by the premise, Assassin’s in America, but after this trailer? Excuse me while I go pre-order. NOW. The game looks incredible! I was a little concerned about how things would transition to the American Revolution setting, for instance how easy would it be to use sneak attacks or quick escapes in a forest? Well, the trailer has abated any concerns I had. I mean, did you see it!?! You can assassinate a bear! Fine, you just kill it but I’d like to imagine that bear was on someone’s hit list.

Assassin’s Creed III releases for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC on October 30.

What did you think it? Does it look like it’ll live up to previous game’s in the franchise?

Hit the jump for more game trailers!

ABOVE: WonderCon was this past weekend and as expected there were some incredible costumes. io9 and The Mary Sue have some nice photo collections and we’ve pulled a few of our favorites to share here. My favorite photo, and it seems everyone else’s too, has been the father/daughter cosplay of Wonder Woman. How adorably awesome is this!?! That little girl’s in good hands and well on her way to geekdom. Hit the jump for more wonderful WonderCon cosplay! (The Mary Sue)

Honestly, even though I loved Assassin’s Creed II neither of the following games, Brotherhood or Revelations, really sparked my interest. And I wasnt even all that excited for Assassin’s Creed III. That was until I saw this trailer.

There’s something about a game set during the American Revolutionary War that seems daring. Especially when if rumors are true and our main character is the son of a British Soldier and an American Indian mother. Note the use of that kick ass tomahawk.

Okay, Ubisoft, you’ve got me amped.

Assassin’s Creed III is rumored to be released this October.
