Ubisoft's offer for a free game for Assassin's Creed Unity season pass owners is now live, and it's extremely simple. In fact, it only took a few clicks before I was the proud new owner of Far Cry 4. Here's how to do it.... read

Ubisoft owns one of the most popular videogame properties in Assassin's Creed, but that's not stopping it from trying to extend the series' appeal to an audience that some might frown upon -- children. That's the publisher's ... read
Imagine a scenario where goats take over and rule supreme. Not good-natured, frolic in the meadow, eat your leafy spruge goats. No, purely evil, human-devouring, straight-up refuse to eat your leafy spurge goats. Pretty... read
As much smack as I have to talk about the likes of Assassin's Creed and Watch Dogs and all of Ubisoft's open world oeuvre, along with Uplay practices, I can never damn the company fully. Aside from it putting out Ra... read
"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
Less than a week after release, Ubisoft's already planning and detailing the third of Assassin's Creed Unity's patches. This update is said to be "larger in scope" than the previous patches, and will focus on several problema... read

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
Well. 50 minutes, anyway. Far Cry 4 is a game I've been looking forward to since ages ago -- and now, it's finally something I can play. Poorly. Here you go, watch us flounder. Go on, we're a mess. read feature
♪Shangri Feat. La (Everbest remix)♪ Far Cry 3 was one of my favorite games of 2012. It didn't stray too far from the normal sandbox conventions set before it, but gallivanting around beautiful island vistas and flying about with wingsuits was pretty damn fun.
For some that wasn't enough, though, and for those folks, Far Cry 4 won't be enough either. But for me, it's still pretty damn fun. 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
A matter of perspective Ever since its 2007 debut, the Assassin's Creed franchise has been presented as a one-sided affair. Chronicling the persistent struggle between the Assassins and the Templars, Ubisoft has always framed the story casting ... read feature

Far Cry's new thing seems to be free flowing painted/tribal tits, nipple slips be damned, and those feature prominently in this video. But if you stick around, you'll see that there is also a little, flaccid penis!

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
Don't expect a Blood Dragon spin-off for Far Cry 4, says Ubisoft producer Alex Hutchinson.
"No. The answer is no, you won't get another one of those," Hutchinson told IGN Australia. "But hopefully we'll be able to come up with something that surprises you just as much."

A nice rundown of the premise and every enemy
This new Far Cry 4 trailer highlights the entire premise in detail (more than the actual start of the game does), and shows you pretty much every major character, weapon, and item in the game.

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
