Infamous: First Light shows off how great Fetch really is photo
Infamous: First Light shows off how great Fetch really is
by Hamza CTZ Aziz

Jack of all trades, master of none. Sure Delson from Infamous: Second Son has the ability to suck up other people's powers for his own, which is pretty cool in its own right. But those that just have one specific power to manage have way more control over their gifts. 

Case in point, Fetch is just a badass. I loved speeding through the city non-stop. That's right, you're not metered down here -- you have unlimited use of your dash ability. Here other power sets are pretty cool too, but largely resemble Delsin's. Projectiles, hover jump, super attacks -- it's all there, but you know, all neon-y. 

The core of the story follows Fetch when she gets by the anti-Conduit department, and goes up until the point Delsin and Fetch meet. So you're getting about five hours worth of content with this First Light standalone DLC. You'll only be exploring the first whole island of Infamous' Seattle. 

On top of the story is a wave-based horde mode where you can compete for the highest score on leaderboards. And if you own Second Son you can use Delsin in this horde mode. 

If you liked Second Son and don't think $14.99 is a whole lot, than you won't go wrong with First Light.

How Far Cry 4 plans on making memorable missions

Think back on Far Cry 3. Reflect on all the memorable moments you had with that game. What sticks out the most? The missions or the unscripted stuff that happened in the open world? Chances are you primarily remember the unsc...

Command a tiger that can turn invisible in Far Cry 4
by Hamza CTZ Aziz

Far Cry 3 had some pretty wild moments. Like, remember when Vaas was dancing around on the stripper pole? Good stuff. Far Cry 4 will have some crazy segments as well, but these are a little more grounded to the core of the game. 

Scattered around Kyrat are hidden tankas that, once discovered, allow the main character to meditate and travel to Shangri-La to relieve the life of a legendary warrior. You'll be transported to a surreal world with floating islands and you are equipped with only a bow and arrow to take on the enemies of these environments. 

Oh, and you have a tiger that you can command to attack others. The tiger can also turn invisible.

Assassin's Creed Rogue gives you more open ocean goodness photo
Assassin's Creed Rogue gives you more open ocean goodness
by Hamza CTZ Aziz

Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag was a huge game. Like, you could easily sink 100 hours into that whole experience before getting 100 percent completion. So Assassin's Creed Rogue may or may not be quite the game for you. It just depends, really.

If you couldn't get enough of the pirate sailing and high seas traveling, then you'll be all over Rogue. (Those of you stuck on last-gen platforms, at least). If you've had more than your fill already though, well, Rogue may not have enough to offer you. 

Personally, I'm in the camp that's excited for Rogue. More so than Unity, in fact. The open ocean stuff still intrigues me enough to warrant another adventure on a map that's comparable to Assassin's Creed IV's. But more than that, I like the idea of playing as a Templar this time around.

Assassin's Creed Unity's two big changes that I'm excited for

Okay, so technically there's three big changes that everyone will be excited about, the third being the whole two- to four-player cooperative experience in Assassin's Creed Unity. Personally I'm not all that looking forward t...

Soda scientist shows off Sunset Overdrive mutants and robots

There was a surprising amount of brand new stuff out of gamescom (thanks, Sony!), but let's not forget Sunset Overdrive is coming out October 28. It's pretty fun, though I've only messed with the multiplayer.

Sleeping Dogs: Definitive Edition coming to PC too, has an odd trailer

Technically, the existence of Sleeping Dogs: Definitive Edition was just a rumor up until now, outed by a telling Amazon listing. Square Enix confirmed everyone's suspicions today by formally announcing the remake and p...

Dying Light's gamescom trailer is all about hunting and hiding

As I wrote about at E3, there's a lot that you can do in Techland's Dying Light. First and foremost, you can run, jump, and grapple your way across terrain at a breakneck speed. You can take a break from traversal and use yo...

The conclusion to the Far Cry 4 devs' trip to Nepal is exceedingly grim

Part one of the video series chronicling the Far Cry 4 developers' trip to Nepal was strange. Part two was more dangerous than anything. The third and final part is just downright depressing. Talking with citizens that ...

Sleeping Dogs will also be re-released on new consoles

Thus far, the most obvious trend that's accompanied the transition from legacy to current generation consoles is the upgrading and re-release of some of the more recent titles that were only available on PlayStation 3 and Xbo...

Assassin's Creed Rogue officially announced, complete with details and first trailer
by Brett Makedonski

Rumors have been floating around since March about Ubisoft's plans to release two Assassin's Creed titles this year -- one for current consoles and one for legacy consoles. Originally codenamed Comet, Ubisoft formally revealed and detailed Assassin's Creed Rogue today, and gave us our first trailer.

Assassin's Creed Rogue is in development by Ubisoft Sofia (with the usual collaboration across many other Ubisoft studios), and takes place during the Seven Years War in the mid-18th century. Rogue makes a return to the northeastern area of North America, particularly the North Atlantic, Appalachian River Valley, and New York.

The twist this time around is that the protagonist fights for the other side. Following the story of Shay Patrick Cormac, Rogue tells the tale of how he was betrayed by the Assassin brotherhood and turned against them. It appears as if Rogue will put significant emphasis on the naval aspect that defined Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag, as Ubisoft detailed Cormac's ship -- the Morrigan -- which will be used for Assassin hunting.

While Assassin's Creed Unity is the installment for current consoles, Rogue is exclusive to legacy consoles -- specifically the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. It's currently slated for a November 11 release in North America. That's when you get to find out how the other half lives.

Double the RP, double the fun in GTA Online this weekend

How's your street cred doin'? It's probably taken a hit since you visited that indie coffee shop and volunteered at the local food shelter. Everyone thinks you're a softie now. GTA Online can help reverse that notion (at...

You won't be decapitating anybody in Assassin's Creed Unity

Early marketing materials for Assassin's Creed Unity have largely included guillotines, headless bodies, and severed heads on pikes. It makes sense; the clash of classes that was the French Revolution was an awfully bloo...

Assassin's Creed Unity trailer kills with the blade to save from the blade
