Finally some good news

Back in 2013 when I pre-ordered my PS4, one of the games I was most anticipating was Watch Dogs from Ubisoft, the same company that brought us Assassin's Creed.  I pre-ordered the game so that I could have it on release day of the PS4 and it was gonna be a toss up what I would play more.  Would it be Assassin's Creed or Watch Dogs that I would play first? Well, before I had to answer that question, Ubisoft answered it for me by delaying the release of Watch Dogs until the Spring of 2014.  That's OK though, I still have the pre-order whenever it comes out.  But then Monday I got a little bit of a scare.  All over the internet were reports that Ubisoft had forfeited the copyright to Watch Dogs and that the game was scrapped and may never be released.  Thankfully that was not the case.  In a statement from Ubisoft, they said:
“On February 1, 2014, Ubisoft Entertainment received an email from TEAS@uspto.gov notifying Ubisoft Entertainment that a Request for Express Abandonment had been filed in connection with Application Serial No. 85642398. The Request for Express Abandonment purports to be signed by the Chief Executive Officer of Ubisoft Entertainment, Yves Guillemot.
“Mr. Guillemot, however, did not sign the Request for Express Abandonment, nor did Ubisoft Entertainment file the Request for Express Abandonment. The Request for Express Abandonment is fraudulent and was not filed by Ubisoft Entertainment or its representative.”
So apparently it was all some kind of fraudulent scam?  I don't know.  Maybe it was some elaborate marketing ploy to create a stir and get the people fired up.  Maybe it was just a scam.  Who know? But people are talking.  All I know is that I can't wait for it to come out.  If you aren't familiar with it, check out this video.
So, see, it is gonna be awesome!!!!

In other good news, Netflix has announced that it has renewed their original series House of Cards for a third season.  It is a little unusual since the second season hasn't even started (it becomes available Feb. 14) and they have confirmed a third season.  But oh well, Netflix sort of plays by their own rules too.  If you haven't seen season one of House of Cards, you really must check it out.  Here is the trailer for season one. 
I won't post the trailer for season two so as not to ruin anything for you in case you decide to watch it. 

So, Watch Dogs and House of Cards? Life is good!!!!  Until next time, peace!!!!
