Ass Creed modernity

Assassin's Creed will feature more modern day segments in the future


Twenty more years of Assassin's Creed
Feb 27
The amusing glitch-fest that was Assassin's Creed Unity didn't intentionally eschew the series' whacked out modern day narrative. In fact, more dalliances into now-time were planned for Unity, Assassin's Creed lead writer Dar... read
Far Cry 4 DLC

Far Cry 4 somehow gets more dangerous in Valley of the Yetis


Didn't think that was possible
Feb 26
If Far Cry 4's jaunt through Kyrat serves as any indication, the Himalayas are an incredibly dangerous place. Whatever isn't trying to maul you is trying to shoot bullets at you. It's like being caught between a rock and a h... read
Rocksmith

Rocksmith will turn you into a guitar legend like Hendrix or the guy from Papa Roach


*results not guaranteed
Feb 25
Rocksmith 2014's getting some DLC songs by Papa Roach today. One time in eighth grade, a kid in my class started a speech by saying "Cut my life into pieces, this is my bat report. Echolocation, no seeing. Vampire bat bite your arm, now you're bleeding." I wonder what he's up to. Probably not playing Papa Roach songs on Rocksmith, if I'm being really honest. read
Lady Luck is a cruel mistress
Typically, board games involving just dice aren't my thing. I don't like playing a game in which I feel I have no control in whether I win or lose. Yahtzee is a prime example of this, while Risk is somewhere in between. Much ... read feature

Grow Home update brings a new side quest, tons of bug fixes


Warm and fuzzy
Feb 18
Thank goodness Ubisoft Reflections' little robot adventure turned out well. That could've been such a letdown. Reviewing Grow Home for Destructoid, Ben Davis said he "got more than enough enjoyment out of exploring the world... read

No year-over-year change
Feb 12
Ubisoft didn't have a disappointing holiday season, as it posted financial reports today indicating that the publisher exceeded its quarterly sales expectations by approximately €80 million. More surprising, it did ... read

Ride a dune buggy in Far Cry 4's 'Overrun' DLC


Or just keep on riding on elephants, that's cool too
Feb 10
Already tired of everything Far Cry 4 has to offer? You're in luck, because Overrun, the latest batch of content for Far Cry 4, is available today. This is a more multiplayer-focused endeavor, with a brand new PvP mode in whi... read

The Crew patch fixes months-old lost stats bug, doesn't return lost stats


Ubisoft
Feb 09
Ubisoft's open world racer The Crew launched in December with a bug that the team couldn't fix over the holidays or also the month of January. It was a big bug, too, what with it randomly erasing players' stats.  Wi... read

Made possible by SteelSeries Sentry
Feb 05
When Assassin's Creed Rogue comes to PC later this spring, players will be able to take advantage of some optional tech that, in a sense, won't restrict their field of vision to the confines of their screen; in fact, it... read
AC Rogue PC date

Assassin's Creed Rogue sneaks over to PC on March 10


Stabs a thing or two along the way
Feb 05
For more than three months, Assassin's Creed Rogue has been an exclusive to legacy consoles. That'll change on March 10, as the PC version finally has a release date that's set in stone. Strangely, the word doesn't come... read
Seed of joy
Grow Home is another entry in Ubisoft's recent string of passion projects, in the same vein as Child of Light and Valiant Hearts. It started out as a tool for a small group of Ubisoft developers to experiment with procedural ... read feature

Grow Home

It's hard to believe Grow Home is a Ubisoft game


Cute 3D platformer out now on Steam without Uplay
Feb 04
In my dream world, Ubisoft would primarily put out smaller personal projects like Grow Home, but, I get it -- there's substantially more money to be made on Assassin's Creed and its ilk. I'll cherish these moments whenever I... read

Keys were purchased with stolen credit cards
Feb 03

Steam and Origin games too

On Tuesday, the new standalone Saints Row expansion Gat Out of Hell released for $19.99 on Steam (or $5 for those who took advantage of GameStop's goof). If you're interested in the game and are already planning to pay full p... read

There's a normal cycle of news for finding out about upcoming videogames. After a tightly-controlled reveal, details will trickle out slowly -- just enough at a time to barely placate prospective players, their longing for th... read feature

What's old is new again... kind of
If our time spent wandering the Parisian streets in Assassin's Creed Unity has taught us anything, it's that Arno Dorian is a self-serving man. Almost all of his actions, whether aligned with the cause of the Brotherhood or n... read feature

These Assassin's Creed Mega Bloks were 'designed with adult collectors in mind'


Hey, kids, wanna stab?

Brett told us about the Assassin's Creed Mega Bloks only to totally leave us hanging now that the toys are viewable online. Never did trust that guy. Makedonski? Obviously a phony last name. Anyway, yes, Ubisoft has posted im... read

Assassin's Creed Unity's free DLC is a week away, and it looks too spooky


Human remains will do that
Jan 06
Assassin's Creed Unity was mostly an adventure that took place on the crowded Parisian streets, all jam-packed with people. The game's first add-on looks to be similarly populated -- not by lively dissenters, but by the... read

Alaska, vampires, Jurassic Park: Ubisoft polls future Far Cry settings


Copy-paste the formula to a new locale
Jan 06
Not that it was in doubt after Far Cry 4's sameness (to FC3), but Far Cry has been Ubisoft'd, its mechanics ripped and torn from one setting to another in the name of disconnected virtual tourism. Ubisoft polled its fans... read

It's an annual tradition: Making resolutions to kick off the New Year. There's a whole new arbitrary set of twelve months in which to better ourselves. Or, you know, make the same mistakes we made in the last dozen. It's finally time to quit smoking or start going to the gym. Whatever. Here's a bunch of words about what videogame companies should do to shape up in 2015. read feature

Me and my crew, we swaggin' in the room

Far Cry 4 DLC wants you dead... permanently


Naked fights to the death
Dec 20
Far Cry 4 was a pretty restrained game by comparison to Far Cry 3. Sure you could command an elephant into battle, but the game's hero Ajay Ghale never got himself into enough truly bizarre situations. Thankfully, there's a n... read
