Let's watch Assassin's Creed Unity glitch out to the tune of 'Barbie Girl'

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.

Assassin's Creed Unity really nails those next-gen glitches

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.

Review: Assassin's Creed Unity photo
Review: Assassin's Creed Unity
by Chris Carter

Assassin's Creed IV was a turning point for the series. While a lot of fans were disappointed by the pointless Revelations and the polarizing Assassin's Creed III, Black Flag delivered everything you could possibly want from Ubisoft, and then some. Fans embarked on quite the adventure with Edward Kenway, and many newcomers even described it as "a pirate game that happens to be Assassin's Creed."

Assassin's Creed Unity doesn't live up to the new standard set by Black Flag, but it's a journey worth taking if you're already into the series, and proves that the franchise is still sustainable.

Conan O'Brien wants to send AC Unity's assassin right to the orphanage

It sure seems like Conan O'Brien's pumping out a fair number of Clueless Gamer segments lately. I suppose that's what happens in the midst of the madness of the holiday release season and publishers trip over themselves to h...

Ubisoft's upcoming releases back on Steam (except in the UK)

Last week, Ubisoft pulled its upcoming games--F4r Cry, Assassin's Creed Unity, and The Crew--from Steam. This allowed me to roll with a headline, "Going hard in the Uplaynt," a play on "going hard in the paint" and ...

What the hell, Assassin's Creed? Time-travel isn't part of the deal

Well, this changes things up. Assassin's Creed Unity is going where no ancestral assassin has gone before -- the future. This trailer shows the Animus simulation collapsing, forcing the protagonist -- still acting and d...

You'll probably end up putting an eye out with this Assassin's Creed blade

Do you have delusions of grandeur, the likes of which lead you to fancy yourself a great assassin among the likes of Ezio Auditore da Firenze or Arno Dorian? A mere $60 will put you significantly closer to assassin authentic...

There are just too many assassins in the new AC Unity TV ad

The new Assassin's Creed Unity television spot sheds a few tears, but it sheds way more blood. That's what happens when it figuratively rains assassins in the streets, from the roofs, and through the windows. Sometimes it takes a flood to spark a revolution.

Microsoft takes a stab at moving more Xbox Ones with Assassin's Creed bundle

This Assassin's Creed Rogue story trailer is actually important

Every major videogame these days is accompanied by a seemingly endless barrage of trailers prior to release. That's just how things work now. A lot of it is little more than filler to keep the audience constantly reminded th...

Four things I loved about playing Assassin's Creed: Rogue photo
Four things I loved about playing Assassin's Creed: Rogue
by Alessandro Fillari

It's been four years since Assassin's Creed became an annual fixture. Every year, like clockwork, Ubisoft releases a brand new, fully developed title in the AC series. But things have changed slightly this year. In a surprising move, Ubisoft decided to ditch the cross-gen development for this year's release of Assassin's Creed, and focus on making two different titles that focused on different directions. With Assassin's Creed: Unity coming to current gen and PC only, many fans will likely miss out. But it seems like people have forgotten that another title in the series is releasing on the same day.

The ever elusive Assassin's Creed: Rogue, which was just announced two months ago, is Ubisoft's attempt to try to offer something for fans who haven't made the jump to current gen, but also aims to improve upon the design and structure set by fan-favorite Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag. Speaking with Rogue's producer, Karl Luhe, and after spending a good four hours with the tittle at a recent preview event, I see that there's a lot to like with this recent entry in the series.

But I still do have some misgivings.
