Seven things I loved about playing Watch Dogs photo
Seven things I loved about playing Watch Dogs
by Alessandro Fillari

The delay of Ubisoft Montreal's new open world IP, Watch Dogs, surprised many. With only a month away from launch, and a rather bold marketing push for the holiday season, Ubisoft appeared ready, but then we found it wasn't. At all. It's not too often you see publishers holding back a game's release to further development, and it's certainly admirable of them to be so honest.

"The game wasn't finished," said lead game designer Danny Belanger rather bluntly. "You see all the content we have, there was a lot of different parts of it that were not at the level we wanted -- so it was hard, there was a lot of others reasons too, but at the end of the day, we didn't want to release the game in state we weren't happy with."

With its May release approaching, Ubisoft is ready to unveil its upcoming open world action title, and the publisher invited the press to get plenty of hands-on time with the game. As you can tell with title, I came away pretty pleased, though I have some reservations still.

Click your heels together and wish for SNES or GBA Remixes

Download Red Orchestra 2 on Steam for free photo
Download Red Orchestra 2 on Steam for free
by Jordan Devore

Tripwire Interactive has given the heads up that its multiplayer World War II shooter Red Orchestra 2: Heroes of Stalingrad will be free to download -- and keep forever! -- as part of a 24-hour deal on Steam, starting tomorrow. Help spread the word, if you would.

I look at this as a clever way to get grow the community with people who would in all likelihood otherwise never play the game. I only wish more developers were willing to try promotions like this.

The newer Rising Storm, which brings Red Orchestra 2 to the Pacific, will get a promo of its own soon. Be on the lookout for a free weekend and a discount to own the game permanently.
