Far Cry Classic coming to US, launch date revealed

Ubisoft announced Far Cry Classic quite a while ago, but things quickly went quiet -- which is understandable, seeing as how most people were too focused on news coming out of E3 to really care too much. That change...

It's the return of Mr. Hankey in The Stick of Truth photo
It's the return of Mr. Hankey in The Stick of Truth
by Hamza CTZ Aziz

This ad for South Park: The Stick of Truth just debuted during today's Super Bowl game against the sports team that are sporting for the most sports. It's pretty tame, but does show off some plot points like the return of a certain old South Park character.

There were two other quick looks at the game released on the official website too, "rejected" ads if you will. One involves Adolf Hitler and the other sees Mr. Hankey arguing with his poop wife.

Game of the Year contender for sure.

Assassin's Creed Liberation HD is a fine upgrade photo
Assassin's Creed Liberation HD is a fine upgrade
by Chris Carter

When Liberation was released on the PlayStation Vita, I heartily enjoyed the opportunity to play Assassin's Creed on the go. Aveline was a great addition to the franchise, and it showed that Ubisoft could actually handle a heroine with grace.

It wasn't a flawless experience however, as it had a number of frame-rate issues among a few other technical hiccups, mostly due to the fact that it was crammed onto a portable. Here we are over a year later with the HD port, and although some of the problems confusingly remain, the overall package is a much stronger effort.

In other words, you could say the original has become...liberated.
