"Oi, Guv! Did you nick my Vichyssoise?!"
Max and I are still working our way through the first hour of Assassin's Creed: Unity. I really like re-watching this part of our playthrough because every time I do, I see a new NPC twitching or jostling around. Also, we made jokes about reality television and stuff.  read feature

What if AssCreed existed in a world were the developers could finish it
Max and I were fighting to stay awake through the beginning of Assassin's Creed Unity, and Max posited a theory that many Ubisoft published games exist in the same universe. Then we saw a fancy boy and a pig and at least had something to joke about for a while. read feature

From boring to broken in just 10 minutes
Oh boy... Max and I jumped into Assassin's Creed Unity. Max started out cautiously excited at what this new iteration might bring, while I have never been at all interested in the series. It's not long before both of our sentiments landed at the same astonished disappointment. Trust me, it only gets uglier from here. read feature

Let's watch Assassin's Creed Unity glitch out to the tune of 'Barbie Girl'


That's our Assassin's Creed

Kyle sent me this compilation of Assassin's Creed Unity glitches and, six minutes later, I'm calling it: I've spent more time watching these games mess up than I have playing them. When they screw up, they tend to do so spectacularly. Best glitch happens at 4:26. read

Assassin's Creed Unity really nails those next-gen glitches


I mean 'current-gen'
Nov 11
Or, maybe this guy's not a glitch. Maybe he's an assassin sent with a darker purpose. Maybe he's supposed to infiltrate your nightmares and make sure you never sleep soundly again. Kudos to you, Assassin Brotherhood; you've found a way to inflict a punishment more terrifying than death. read

There are just too many assassins in the new AC Unity TV ad


The brochure said there'd only be a few

The new Assassin's Creed Unity television spot sheds a few tears, but it sheds way more blood. That's what happens when it figuratively rains assassins in the streets, from the roofs, and through the windows. Sometimes it takes a flood to spark a revolution. read
