Taking us down a dark and secluded memory lane, the folks at Did You Know Gaming explore the secrets of the Assassin's Creed series, which started life as the next installment of the Prince of Persia. I'd forgotten all about that.
The original publisher of household names such as Myst, Prince of Persia and Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego is donating its software library and corporate records to the museum known as the home of the National Toy Hall of Fame.
We heard a few months back that the 1993 platformer Prince of Persia 2: The Shadow and the Flame, sequel to the very first PoP game from '89, would get a mobile remake. That remake is out now.
Which video game has the most gruesome death scenes? Surely Mortal Kombat 9 is a contender, in particular Noob Saibot's first fatality called "Make a Wish." It's so ridiculous it stands out despite Mortal Kombat's already high level of gore.
The 16-bit era had unique visuals. Simple yet bright and colorful, we could always get lost in the tiny details. Taking parts of these memorable games and mixing them with a real life environment might sound odd, but if done right the results are beautiful.
Coming to smartphones and tablets, a remake of 1993's Prince of Persia: The Shadow and The Flame. The awkward thing here is that, well, the graphics of the 20-year-old game look cooler than the remake's—at least to me. That can't be right, can it?
With Valentine's Day putting us all in a romantic mood it was our duty to gather some of the defining aaaawww moments video games offer.
No topic appeared in the rumor mill this year as much as the coming next-generation consoles from Sony and Microsoft.
Listen, I love Prince of Persia. With all that lovely animation and derring-do, Jordan Mechner's adventure games are well-loved for good reason. For those wanting to re-visit PoP's charms, the Wii Virtual Console get the 1992 SNES version.
Video games need more "Call Me Ishmael."
If you are super old like me (hello old friends!), you'll remember using some of these Apple computers. If you are a young whippersnapper (hello young friends!), you might not—but you should still enjoy perusing the retro hardware that's on display.
Here's another awesome Fine Art to get your week started on the right foot: a collection of works by David Levy, aka vyle, aka another of my very favourite concept artists in the whole wide world.
This image is reportedly our first look at a brand new Prince of Persia game. It was posted by a user on Ubisoft's official forums, and down the bottom you can see the term POP_ZERO_2.
LEGO Batman! Prince of Persia! The Last Blade! Curling! If Nintendo had announced this week's downloadable titles during their E3 2012 press conferences, maybe we wouldn't all be trudging around like sad puppies today.
At the end of March, Prince of Persia creator Jordan Mechner found the source code for the game years after he'd thought it was lost.
It's funny, when people think of Prince of Persia games, they think of either the first one, or the ones including and following 2003's Sands of Time. It's as though there was a game in there that never existed...
Jordan Mechner, the creator of the Prince of Persia series, hasn't had his hands on the source code to the original game for over a decade. Why? Because it had been sitting hidden in his dad's closet, that's why.
