Oct. 30: Assassin's Creed 3 released. The latest chapter of the Ubisoft action video game features a setting in colonial America, and includes both Boston and New York locations. While the fighting and killing should be fun, American history geeks (guilty!) should find the locations, artwork and scenarios just as exhilarating as throwing a tomahawk.
Nov. 2: The movie "Wreck It Ralph" hits theaters. An animated feature about a video game bad guy (imagine if Donkey Kong could speak and was human) who wants to be good - he ends up escaping his game and enters a world of video games with other characters. Imagine if Tron were made by Disney - oh, wait.
Nov. 9: The latest James Bond movie, "Skyfall", hits movie theaters. Remember, it's shaken, not stirred. True techies go for the gadgets, of course, not the Bond girls.
