Assassin's Creed will feature more modern day segments in the future

The amusing glitch-fest that was Assassin's Creed Unity didn't intentionally eschew the series' whacked out modern day narrative. In fact, more dalliances into now-time were planned for Unity, Assassin's Creed lead writer Dar...

Far Cry 4 somehow gets more dangerous in Valley of the Yetis

If Far Cry 4's jaunt through Kyrat serves as any indication, the Himalayas are an incredibly dangerous place. Whatever isn't trying to maul you is trying to shoot bullets at you. It's like being caught between a rock and a h...

Rocksmith will turn you into a guitar legend like Hendrix or the guy from Papa Roach

Rocksmith 2014's getting some DLC songs by Papa Roach today. One time in eighth grade, a kid in my class started a speech by saying "Cut my life into pieces, this is my bat report. Echolocation, no seeing. Vampire bat bite your arm, now you're bleeding." I wonder what he's up to. Probably not playing Papa Roach songs on Rocksmith, if I'm being really honest.

Review: Risk photo
Review: Risk
by Robert Summa

Typically, board games involving just dice aren't my thing. I don't like playing a game in which I feel I have no control in whether I win or lose.

Yahtzee is a prime example of this, while Risk is somewhere in between. Much like Monopoly, you do have to have some sort of strategy most of the time. However, because these games are so dependent on chance, those strategies often get thrown out the window.

With Ubisoft's newly released Risk for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, this is basically what you get. You can plan and plot as much as you want, but if Lady Luck isn't on your side, then you aren't going to win -- no matter what you do.

The Crew patch fixes months-old lost stats bug, doesn't return lost stats

Ubisoft's open world racer The Crew launched in December with a bug that the team couldn't fix over the holidays or also the month of January. It was a big bug, too, what with it randomly erasing players' stats.  Wi...

Assassin's Creed Rogue's PC port will be first triple-A game to use eye-tracking

When Assassin's Creed Rogue comes to PC later this spring, players will be able to take advantage of some optional tech that, in a sense, won't restrict their field of vision to the confines of their screen; in fact, it...

Review: Grow Home photo
Review: Grow Home
by Ben Davis

Grow Home is another entry in Ubisoft's recent string of passion projects, in the same vein as Child of Light and Valiant Hearts. It started out as a tool for a small group of Ubisoft developers to experiment with procedural animation, and sprouted into an idea for a full-fledged game as the team began to notice how much fun they were having just messing around. It's a charming origin story for a very delightful videogame.

The cute and simple visuals reeled me in, planting a seed of interest in my mind which grew into satisfied enjoyment when I finally began to play it. Everything in Grow Home hits that perfectly charming tone, from the adorable character to the quirky gameplay mechanics. What's more, all of this can be enjoyed without having to worry about Ubisoft's unpopular Uplay service.

It's hard to believe Grow Home is a Ubisoft game

In my dream world, Ubisoft would primarily put out smaller personal projects like Grow Home, but, I get it -- there's substantially more money to be made on Assassin's Creed and its ilk. I'll cherish these moments whenever I...
