Derrick Rose and Adrian Peterson Assassins?

Derrick Rose an Assassin?

Commercials have always been a great asset for athletes as not only do they get money for participating in them but they get the publicity and exposure as well. However sometimes it can backfire on them depending on what the commercial is or what their role is in the commercial.

Luckily for Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson and Chicago Bulls guard Derrick Rose it’s not the case; both are staring in the new Assassin’s Creed commercial for the release of ubisoft’s new video game Assassin’s Creed: Revelations.

The commercial begins with Adrian Peterson flipping up his hood over his head with his name and number of victims (1,435) underneath it. A couple seconds later Derrick Rose does the same thing except instead of victims it says escapes (1,357). As for what the victims and escapes numbers mean; there’s no answer.

Now athletes star in several different commercials each year and some of those due include video games, except they’re doing something else; something more relevant. Maybe it’s just me, but Adrian Peterson and Derrick Rose in hooded clothing listed as “Assassin’s” just doesn’t really fit them.

Adrian Peterson, a 6’1 217 pound running back and Derrick Rose, a 6’3 190 pound point guard both assassins? Come on, let’s be realistic. Now if they showed all of that and then played a clip of Chris Carter saying “C’mon man” after it would’ve made much more sense, and would’ve given some laughs.

Now don’t get me wrong, it’s a fine commercial and their goal is certainly paying off; get the public eye’s attention and regardless of how you write the commercial you can’t really going wrong when you put two super star athletes in Adrian Peterson and Derrick Rose in it.

Assassins Creed: Revelations will be available in stores on Tuesday November 15. As for the commercial I’m sure it will be repeatedly aired and showed all throughout the country for at least the next month.

Just in case if you have been living under a rock for the past couple of weeks, here’s the commercial that has people buzzing.

Madden 12: The Best Madden Ever

No lockout here either.

Rather you waited in line at Midnight or you picked it up during the day, point is you have Madden 12 and possibly the game of the year. Now you may ask what could possibly change from Madden 11 or Madden 10 or an older Madden besides the new rosters and new players, well a lot actually.

For starters, the graphics, they’re amazing. Say there was a lockout Madden 12 would’ve been just fine as the camera angles are realistic to the T. With the help of NFL Films, EA Sports re-created the type of footage that you actually see on your television during and before games; if a player or team does it, you see it. All 32 teams’ starting ceremonies are identically recaptured, as is every angle, from Ray Lewis’ introduction to LaDainian Tomlinson’s touchdown celebration. EA says its goal is to make Madden feel as true to life as possible and they hit the bulls-eye on that.

They changed the tackling system and took it to a whole other level by completely revamping the hit detection, creating a new engine that recognizes key parts of defensive football like tackling momentum and the size and weight of players making contact with one another. EA also says this will ensure that characters’ bodies react more realistically after collisions, forcing players to make smarter, more strategic decisions about where and when to pull off tackles.

Even the injuries look more realistic and if playing in the franchise mode you realize that the injuries last the length of the real injury and not just one game. EA also says concussions will finally be recognized. If a player is concussed, he will immediately be carted off the field and kept out for the remainder of the game.

They also made some other small changes such as in franchise mode, once you pick a team you can’t change it, if you wish to change teams you have to start a new franchise. Remember how you tapped button after button to get the ball in a dog pile? Well no more do you have to “work out your fingers” as it’s gone. Lastly even though there are still more changes, defensive players drop fewer interceptions. That was a big thing and has been in Madden for a while. Why they still do drop some occasionally it’s not as bad as it was before.

So if you didn’t wait at Midnight in line or you didn’t pick it up from the store yet, then I don’t know what you’re waiting before because you are missing out. So grab your wallet, grab your keys, and grab your copy of Madden because this is a must buy.
