Today for the low low cost of a free 4.8 GB download you can play Uncharted 3‘s multiplayer component. Naughty Dog has detailed exactly what paying will get you because you will be locked to level 15. Being locked to level 15 however does not preclude you from playing the game once you hit the rank, you can play as much as you want, you just can’t unlock perks and weapons available to characters after level 15. The only portion that is 100% free is the competitive aspect, the co-op and split screen options are pay gated away, as is the single player experience.

It feels as if it hasn’t been very long since we had another Assassins Creed, today a screen and some promotional details have surfaced for the next iteration of one of the current generations popular franchises, titled Assassins Creed 4: Black Flag.

Nicholas Gigante of has a few details about the title. The lead character is the father of Assassins Creed 3 villain Haytham Kenway, named Edward Kenway. Kenway is alleged to be a privateer, part time assassin, and pirate.  It is rumored to be set in the Caribbean on the islands of Jamaica and Cuba among others. This would come as no surprise to Assassins Creed 3 players, who no doubt sailed the Caribbean in a series of side missions.

It is also said that Black Flag will be a cross generation title, launching on PS3, 360 and Wii U, but also Playstation 4 and presumably the next Xbox.

We can be certain that we will have more info tomorrow, when Ubisoft plans to host an Assassins Creed event, stay tuned.

Earlier this afternoon Electronic Arts held a conference call for investors at the Morgan Stanley technology conference. A few interesting tidbits were revealed including points on FIFA 14 and Battlefield 4 (more on those in a moment).

In addition to game details EA theorized that next gen machines will be about “eight to ten times the power of current gen consoles.” It was also implied that Microsoft and Sony would be launching their consoles very close together.

If you haven’t watched any of the Clueless Gamer reviews from Conan O’Brien, whether on his tv show CONAN or scattered somewhere around the internet, you’ve been missing out. Conan, a non-gamer in every way, has gone on to play and review games like Skyrim, Halo 4, and Kinect Star Wars to usually hilarious results.

His latest episode, which debuted yesterday, shows Conan reviewing the new Tomb Raider game. Whether it’s Conan declaring her name is Laura instead of Lara, acting as pervy as possible, or experiencing our heroine get a branch shoved through her trachea repeatedly, I’ll go on a limb and say that it’s easily the best episode of Clueless Gamer yet.

Anyways, get the video after the jump and then hit up the Team Coco website for more episodes of Clueless Gamer.

After originally only being slated for release in Canada last year, Nintendo have confirmed that the Wii Mini will release on March 22nd in the United Kingdom with a price yet to be determined.

Unveiled last year with a new design (it looks like a lidded cat litter tray) and no internet functionality, Nintendo is obviously hoping that there is a group of folks somewhere who hasn’t owned one of these things yet.

North American release details have yet to be divulged at this point.

(EDIT: Looks like in addition to today’s Halo sale, there’s a few titles on sale through the whole event and they are ALL under $5! Get the list after the jump!)

You need to buy it. Thank you, ATLUS.

I won’t rag on Plants vs. Zombies this week. Sure it’s an overall underwhelming choice for a free game in light of how awesome Europe is getting things next month along with their acquisition of Sleeping Dogs THIS month, but it’s still an awesome, fun, enjoyable game. You know, despite being on every platform on the planet right now.

So Plants vs. Zombies on the Vita is this week’s freebie and to add to it, there are a handful of Vita games on sale at some decent prices as well for a PS Vita Anniversary Sale. In addition to the Vita love, there’s also a single PS3 game on sale (along with it’s soundtrack) that’s just sticking out like an incredibly cheap sore thumb.
