This is kind of a huge deal, and one we at Guest Controller are immensely proud of and excited for. We have officially moved our content over to the new Guest Controller website! If you used to get here from the url http://www.GuestController.com, you will now be redirected to the new site. We made this move so that we could host our own content directly on the site, without using other services (aside from iTunes as a means to getting our podcast). That means a lot more content, a lot more work, and a hell of a lot more fun. Unfortunately, this might just mean that we’re somewhat leaving behind our WordPress.com community, but fear not! Thanks to the greatness that is WordPress in general, we’re using WordPress.org to build our site, so the move has been smooth as butter, AND you can even follow the blog there! For our lovely followers, you should be able to just follow the new site just as easily, but if not, you could always subscribe to the RSS feed.
Now, there are a few more details on the changes over on the new website, so please click the link right here (yes, that one), to get the full rundown of the aspects of the new site and even the changes to the way we’re doing business. Don’t worry, it’s not a long list and we’re not doing anything absolutely world-changing, but I can tell you that it’s going to be fantastic.
I want to end this post with two things. First, here’s the link in case you didn’t click on it earlier. Second, and I really mean this one, thank you so damn much for reading the website to this point. Even if you weren’t reading this, we’d still be writing and podcasting, so it means even more that you’ve been reading and listening to us at all. Really, it’s absolutely wonderful. We love writing and recording shows, and just covering the things that we love, but we’ve got even more in store for you in the upcoming year. Here’ s to 2012 and the brand new Guest Controller!

I know at least a few of you have been waiting a while for this bit of news. Capcom has just released Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3′s free Heroes & Heralds mode as DLC on Xbox 360 and Playstation 3. All you have to do is start the game and be online.
A completely separate mode for both online and offline play, Heroes & Heralds lets you fight as Earth’s heroes, fending off Galactus, or as the heralds of Galactus, fighting to conquer the planet. The gimmick of this game mode is that you can actually customize your abilities using set of three cards you collect in battle. For instance, having a Cyclops card as your main card will both increase your attack power and make every attack cause chip damage. As a secondary card, Cyclops would just cause all attacks to do chip damage. The list of cards and effects goes on for pages (or one long page, right here!) and the amount of potentially game-changing strategies that come with all the combinations is really, really exciting. Honestly, the best way to figure it all out is to just login, dive in, and find out for yourself. Get to it, challengers!
As if you needed another reason to watch the VGA’s tonight, Ubisoft announced that the first official trailer for Rainbow 6: Patriot will debut at the event. They did release a trailer not too long ago but hopefully this new trailer will give us a bit more insight on what the final game will look and play like.
The VGA’s will be airing at 5 pm PST and 8 pm EST on Spike TV, MTV2 and Spike.com
Besides being good at video games, here’s 10 ways you can make your way through Rayman: Origins.
Mobage recently ported some of their #1 iPhone games over to Android, most notably Tiny Tower. Tiny Tower is, of course, the hit game that has three of the four Guest Controller editors busy as we constantly build, stock and restock our towers. We don’t need to say it again but Tiny Tower is one of the best social games we’ve played and now, folks on Android get to experience the game.
There have been reported compatibility issues so check through the Android Marketplace website to see if your phone can play the game.
If you are still out there as a casual Starcraft fan maybe watching a stream here and checking out a tournament there without actually having played the game, now is your chance to pick the game up for yourself and play one of the best RTS’s out there. Blizzard did introduce a starter pack for the game but now you can pick up the full game for half off. At $30, the game is a pretty great purchase with the great campaign and the full multiplayer suite that has grown significantly since launch. We can’t stress enough that this game can keep you occupied for hours on end with the various modes. You can play a ladder match then various custom games to cool off; Either way, you’re in for a real treat in Starcraft II if you get the game now.
Like we said, the game can be yours for just $30 or you can purchase copies for you friends. There is a 5 per customer limit to take note of. Check out the Blizzard store for more info on the sale.
[Hey guys, Nelson here. Good friend of the site and the people on it, Gordon Whalen, wrote up this pretty in-depth theory for the end of Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood. We wanted to post this a little bit ago, leading up to the release of Revelations, but some things got in the way, so here it is now! Hopefully, some things Gordon wrote here might actually come true in Revelations or the ever-imminent Assassin's Creed 3. Enjoy the speculation!]
The ending of Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood has left a vast empty, Armageddon-like black hole in the pit of our minds. At the end of Ubisoft’s latest installment in the franchise, we find that Desmond, Lucy, Shaun, and R3b3cca (nod to her creative email signature) head into Rome to find where Ezio left the Apple of Eden for safe-keeping in the Roman Coliseum. Once inside the Coliseum leading to the Temple of Juno, Desmond is able to awesomely parkour himself through the puzzle-like temple while carefully listening to what Juno has to say about humans and how her advanced civilization who came before only gave them five of six senses. The sixth sense that we are missing is knowledge – or foresight/intuition – sense that has been somewhat attained by the certain members of the Order of Assassins in the form of Eagle Vision. As you get closer to the Apple, Juno decides to vent at Desmond, becoming upset and disappointed that they even gave the human race senses at all or that they allowed humans to progress as far as they did. One attaining it, the Apple takes control of Desmond’s body, Juno tells him he must locate a woman of particular interest. Juno says Lucy is “clouded by the cross” and that Desmond doesn’t fully understand everything so she makes him kill Lucy… or does she?
