Video: Watch us break Far Cry 4 for our own amusement

Far Cry 4 was one of my favorite games of 2014. It builds upon everything that made its predecessor great and it provides dozens of hours of fun, even beyond its lengthy campaign. To this day, my friends and I are still capturing outposts, hijacking trucks and skinning animals for a few hours every week, but we’ll all still readily admit that the game isn’t perfect. More →

Despite a disastrous 2014, Ubisoft has a big chance to redeem itself this year

There has been a great deal of animosity directed toward the video game industry as of late, and most of it deservedly so. 2014 was a year that we couldn’t wait to leave behind, but now that it’s gone, a lot of us are still dwelling on it. So before the big releases start landing, let’s do our best to begin focusing more equally on the good as well as the bad.

Let’s start with Ubisoft. More →

The first Assassin’s Creed movie will hit theaters December 21st, 2016

There has been a long tradition of movies based on video games in Hollywood, but the vast majority of them have been critical flops. Video game stories just don’t transition especially well to the big screen, which explains why Mortal Kombat, Street Fighter, and perhaps most infamously of all, Super Mario Bros. are so hard to watch.

Brilliant photos show how modern-day Paris compares to Paris in Assassin’s Creed Unity

Plenty of complaints have been leveled against Assassin’s Creed Unity, the first current-gen exclusive for the series, but everyone can agree that Ubisoft’s virtual recreation of Paris is a remarkable achievement. Yes, the world of Unity is massive and beautiful, but does it bear any resemblance to the real world locations it represents?

That’s exactly what Damien Hypolite, a fan of the series and an employee of French science magazine Sciences et Avenir, wanted to find out. More →

Ubisoft is working hard to take EA’s crown as the world’s most hated gaming publisher

For a long time, we didn’t think any company could ever rouse the gaming community’s ire as much as EA does on a regular basis. That said, Ubisoft has made a number of blunders recently that show it has definite ambitions for taking EA’s crown as the world’s most hated gaming publisher. More →

These are the most ridiculous Assassin’s Creed Unity glitches

Earlier this week, Ubisoft released the first Assassin’s Creed game exclusive to the new-generation consoles. Assassin’s Creed Unity takes the series back to its roots, eschewing the naval combat and complicated modern day story of Black Flag for a more traditional adventure. Unfortunately, the game shipped with its fair share of bugs, resulting in plenty of negative reviews. More →

This free mod makes Watch Dogs look more gorgeous than ever before

Watch Dogs is one of the best games of the year and a decent showcase title for the new generation consoles, but it still doesn’t stand up to the seemingly professionally doctored demo from E3 2012. What we saw two years ago was a game that looked more stunning than just about anything else on the market — the reality wasn’t quite as impressive. Now, just two months after the game’s release, PC modder Federico Rojas (aka TheWorst) has released the final version of his graphics mod for Watch Dogs on the PC, bringing the retail release up to speed with the pipe dream from the original demo.

There weren’t many surprises, but unlike some of the other conferences, many of the games Ubisoft presented will actually be on store shelves at some point this year. This isn’t an outline of the new generation — these are games we’ll all be playing in just a few months. More →
