Assassin's Creed fans' best guesses for Victory in painstaking detail photo
Assassin's Creed fans' best guesses for Victory in painstaking detail
by Brett Makedonski

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 the game growing ever so strong until it climaxes at release.

Or, at least, that's how it'd always go if publishers had their way.

Assassin's Creed fans are taking things into their own hands. After a leak of the code-named (or actually named) Assassin's Creed Victory, the franchise's forums are ablaze with investigative speculation as to any and all possible theories about the game. These are some of the best talking points.

Review: Assassin's Creed Unity: Dead Kings photo
Review: Assassin's Creed Unity: Dead Kings
by Brett Makedonski

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 not, weren't altruistic, but rather, efforts for personal gain. With his attention wholly divided between personal vendettas and the apple of his eye, Arno was the least sympathetic model for role-playing Assassins since, well, last year when Edward Kenway held that mantle.

Given his affinity for all things Arno, it should come as no surprise that the Dead Kings add-on extrapolates upon that theme heavily. While Ubisoft dialed up the protagonist's selfish pretense, it took pause with the gameplay and varied it up moreso than the base game.

That is, as much as can be expected with the tried-and-tested Assassin's Creed formula.

A new trailer commemorates the release of Assassin's Creed Unity's free DLC

Do you believe in ghosts? I'm not sure Arno does, but who wouldn't temporarily suspend their disbelief for "ancient artifacts and lost fortunes?" "Sure, the spirits of dead kings are everywhere. Whatever. Big money, big mone...

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

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

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...

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

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...

Far Cry 4 inaccessible on Xbox One, even if you already bought it (Update) photo
Far Cry 4 inaccessible on Xbox One, even if you already bought it (Update)
by Mike Cosimano

[Update: Far Cry 4 has been reinstated on the Xbox One games store, restoring permissions for several users. For those who are still experiencing difficulties, Ubisoft officially recommends a hard reboot of the Xbox One console, as relayed by community manager Ubi_Jax. We've reached out to Ubisoft for comment.]

Far Cry 4 has been removed from the Xbox One games store, leaving some players unable to access the game despite having already purchased and downloaded the title. Ubisoft is actively investigating the issue, but suggests contacting Xbox Support in the meantime.

The problem was first reported nine hours ago on reddit by user AegeusRex, who was stymied by their inability to launch a digital copy of Far Cry 4 Gold Edition. Several other users lodged a similar complaint, and the malaise spread to Ubisoft's support forum soon after.

Ubisoft believes the problem stems from Far Cry 4 being unavailable for purchase through the Xbox One's digital store. The game appears in searches, but clicking on the standard version results in a 'Page Not Found' error. Curiously, the Gold Edition seems to be available for purchase.

We'll keep an eye on this story, but for now, it seems like your best bet is to wait for Microsoft to restore the game. Maybe buy a physical version next time?

Assigning New Year's resolutions to major videogame studios photo
Assigning New Year's resolutions to major videogame studios
by Kyle MacGregor

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.

Review: The Crew  photo
Review: The Crew
by Brittany Vincent

A great racer to me doesn’t focus on an abundance of customization options or entire garages of cars. It doesn’t even serve up solid multiplayer modes or an interesting soundtrack. It keeps me playing.

And let me tell you, unless it’s Mario Kart or a stupidly solid racer that entrances me from its opening credits, that doesn’t happen very often. I don’t care about winning a tournament and I have no interest in being a professional race car driver like Jerry.

Far Cry 4 DLC wants you dead... permanently

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...
