Look, I didn't hate I Am Alive. We as an outlet did not hate I Am Alive. Some dug its monochromatic world and impossibly stiff challenge while others wrote it off as a frustrating experience that was not worth the v...

It seemed unlikely that Ubisoft's post-apocalyptic survival game I Am Alive was going to ever make it to PC due to concerns about piracy. Well, someone over there clearly ran the numbers and determined that such a port would ...
Ubisoft is bringing some of their biggest games to PAX East next week. The biggest of them all will be Assassin's Creed III. It won't be playable, but there will be live demo presentations in a fully-enclosed theater at their...
Years in the making at different studios, Ubisoft's I Am Alive brings the Xbox Live Arcade "House Party" to a close with a post-apocalyptic bang.
A story of survival, it's full of ideas and twists on the action-adventure conventions we've grown used to. It's also yet another ambitious title in a recent string of games that tries to make us rethink what to expect from studios in the downloadable space.
I'm coming off spending a weekend with early preview code for Ubisoft's I Am Alive, and I'll tell you right now that I'm already pretty excited about this game. Some of that excitement could just be that I'm relieved to be safe for a bit, and finally not nervous to the end of my wit from wandering around in the game's charged, threatening world. I was so tense from playing that I think I'll always jokingly call this game I Am Stressed Out.
This is yet another game that puts you in a post-apocalyptic situation, exploring a ruined city, trying to make your way. But what Ubisoft Shanghai has here is a bit different from the rest of your end-of-the-world games in that your struggle to survive is the main focus, and your limitations as a normal human end up being your greatest enemy.
I'm still somewhat surprised that I managed to survive I Am Alive.
The past year has been an interesting one for Sony. The PlayStation 3 finally began to hit its stride, a new portable finally emerged, and an "unauthorized intrusion" resulted in a month-long network outage. That major pothole aside, there have been much brighter moments and many great games since then.
But that's enough reflection for now. It's time to focus on what the future has in store. All week long, the Destructoid Staff will be sharing our picks for some of the most wanted titles of the next year. Yesterday, you saw Hamza's and Conrad's choices for the Xbox 360. Today, Samit Sarkar and I are here to share our most anticipated PlayStation 3 titles of 2012.
I wonder how long it will be until people look at me with wide eyed amazement when I regale them with tales of leaving my home, jumping on a bus, going into town, walking into an actual building and handing over physical mone...
After insulting "bitching" PC fans and casting doubt on a computer version of I Am Alive, director Stanislas Mettra has restated his case with a little more positivity. He now says he'd "love" to see a PC version, and bl...
Hey everybody! I've written posts for The Destructoid Show from numerous strange places, but I don't think I've written one from an airport bar. At least, not this particular airport bar. It smells like garlic fries.
[Every week (until I get bored), Art Juice takes a recent videogame story and provides an unremittingly artistic slant, telling us a little something about ourselves in the process ... whether we want to know the truth or not!]
This particular piece of art took me several hours to make.
You can see how deeply it punches your emotions.
It was E3 2008 when Ubisoft released the teaser for I Am Alive. That little video generated a ton of buzz and then the game just kind of vanished. People started to assume the title drifted off into vaporware land but thankfully that's not the case as I Am Alive is, well, alive.
Ubisoft finally showed off what developer Ubisoft Shanghai has been up to since they took over the production of the game and I'm happy to say that I'm really impressed with what I got to see.
When it rains, it pours. Fresh from the maybe-possibly-real trailer that leaked out, Ubisoft's disaster survival game I Am Alive seems to be gaining traction in the real world and out of the realms of vaporware. The Australia...
Worried that you'll never see Beyond Good & Evil 2? Slightly concerned that you'll never see I Am Alive? Fear not, my friends, for Ubisoft has confirmed that these games are safe.
Hackles were raised when Ubisoft an...
