Apparently Child of Light has co-op: Watch this beautiful trailer

At this point you could show me anything about Child of Light, Ubisoft's upcoming JRPG-inspired tale that's built with the same framework that bore Rayman Origins and Legends. I'm sold. Even if this "co-op trailer" doesn't s...

Preview: Trials: Fusion is daring and really bizarre photo
Preview: Trials: Fusion is daring and really bizarre
by Alessandro Fillari

The year was 2009. Back when the Xbox 360's XBLA Summer of Games was all the rage, a small little downloadable title called Trials HD came out of nowhere and won the hearts of players. With two sequels, and several million copies sold, Trials has been a staple of downloadable gaming scene and has garnered a loyal and devout following.

Now, with another title on the way, the developers at RedLynx and Ubisoft have gone all in and made Trials: Fusion the most content rich and expansive title of the series. With over 150 developers working on the title across three different studios, Ubisoft plans to give fans and newcomers alike a crash course in making a splash with this bizarre and challenging puzzle racer.

Dumb Idiot Ideas: I want Hackers DLC for Watchdogs photo
Dumb Idiot Ideas: I want Hackers DLC for Watchdogs
by Max Scoville

About this time last year, Watchdogs was looking like a major contender for my 2013 GOTY. However, here we are almost a quarter of the way through 2014, and I still haven't gotten my hands on the game, so I've been forced to entertain myself with my own stupid imagination. Today, my stupid imagination conjured up the desire to see Watchdogs DLC based on the 1995 film Hackers, and unfortunately, I decided to make a video about it.

Preview: South Park: The Stick of Truth is ambitious
by Alessandro Fillari

So, where were you when South Park: The Stick of Truth was announced? This was all the way back in 2011, around the time another certain RPG title was on the minds of players. It was certainly a surprising reveal, don't you think? A brand new full-fledged RPG developed by Obsidian Entertainment and written and produced by the talent from the show? Sounded pretty cool to me. With an initial 2012 release date, I was looking forward to the day I could try it out.

But then things happened; it got delayed, and delayed again, and then the original publisher THQ filed for bankruptcy. Things seemed to have looked up when Ubisoft acquired publishing rights and announced a new date. But then it got delayed again, and again. This game has been delayed so much, the TV show it's based on has actually poked fun at the situation. Seriously, go check out the episode "Titties & Dragons" -- it was almost like a tease.

But now, we can  see the light at the end of the tunnel as the game has finally gone gold. With less than a month away from release, Ubisoft invited the press to get some much-appreciated hands-on time with the long-delayed title. Though read ahead with warning: if you hate South Park and you're otherwise easily offended, I can tell you now this game will probably piss you off.
