Get Assassin’s Creed 3 on PC for Free

Ubisoft will be closing out its 30th anniversary game giveaway for PC players with the American Revolution-era Assassin's Creed III. The game publisher has been celebrating its 30th by giving away a new title from its backlog each month for PC players, and it will cap the celebration off with the final game in the Desmond continuity.

Available starting Dec. 7, you can grab a free PC copy of Assassin's Creed III provided you're an Ubisoft Club member. The offer will last for 30 days, which means the previous month's title Far Cry: Blood Dragon is still available to those who haven't signed up yet.

Taking place in the American Revolution, Assassin's Creed III was the finale of the Desmond line of Assassin's Creed games. In IGN's review of the game, writer Keza McDonald says "huge but inconsistent, Assassin's Creed III is an impressive adventure that succeeds in most of what it attempts."

Star Trek VI Director Has Regrets About the Film

Next week will mark the 25th anniversary of the release of Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country. The film -- the final adventure of the original crew of the USS Enterprise -- was released on Dec. 6, 1991, and was part of the 25th anniversary celebration of the Star Trek franchise itself.

Undiscovered Country was notable for the return of Nicholas Meyer to the director’s seat. As the man who resuscitated the franchise with The Wrath of Khan nine years earlier (and as a key contributor to the screenplay of The Voyage Home, the biggest crossover success for big-screen Trek at the time), Meyer’s steering the last voyage of Captain Kirk and his team was welcomed by fans wholeheartedly. In fact, the film is still regarded as one of the best of the Star Trek movies with its tale of the first tentative steps towards peace between the Federation and the Klingon Empire after the long Cold War between the two powers (a clear analogy to the relationship between the U.S. and the USSR).

Wrestling Wrap Up: Bray Wyatt Needs a Title

Oh, Bray Wyatt. You wonderfully disturbed swamp muffin. You have been squandered for so long. Laboring under the notion that "monsters don't need championships," you have been detoured from true greatness. Locked in years of meaningless feuds that have done nothing but deplete your tank and waste your words.

You had the potential to grow your ranks. When Harper and Rowan were at your side, your army could have swelled like a sinister serpent, wrapping its coil around the entire WWE. You kidnapped Kane, but he got better. You brainwashed Daniel Bryan - for, like, a week. Now Randy Orton, someone you weren't actually even trying to recruit, just joined your cause out of nowhere. Is he your linchpin or your downfall?
