Assassin's Creed Unity captures the liveliness of revolutionary Paris photo
Assassin's Creed Unity captures the liveliness of revolutionary Paris
by Brett Makedonski

Ubisoft took a bold step in opting to release Assassin's Creed Unity exclusively on PC, PS4, and Xbox One. With a fragmented userbase on consoles, publishers are mostly taking the predictable approach of launching games on last- and this-gen systems, obviously to maximize sales. Maybe the business-savvy (or at least conventional) logic backs this decision, but that's not what Ubisoft's doing with Assassin's Creed Unity.

By dedicating itself to developing solely on the most powerful platforms available, Ubisoft has opened the door to make the most involved and detailed Assassin's Creed title yet. That's a good thing because if our hands-off demo is any indication, Paris during the French Revolution has many stories to tell.

Assassin's Creed Unity set to release October 28 photo
Assassin's Creed Unity set to release October 28
by Darren Nakamura

Earlier today, Microsoft showed off Assassin's Creed Unity's four-player cooperative play, but Ubisoft still had more footage to display of its stealth/action/parkour juggernaut set during the French Revolution. Most importantly, we now have a release date: October 28, 2014. Second-most important? A cover of Tears for Fears' "Everybody Wants to Rule the World."

Otherwise, it looks like Ubisoft has improved on the acrobatics, introduced new mission types (murder mysteries!), and increased the number of non-playable characters in the environments. The demo was fairly long, and it should please those who want to jump off buildings and secretly stab bad guys.

Is it possible to watch this cheery advert and not get creeped out?

Take a look at this video advertisement for Gisborne Industries, a fictional corporation from Mike Bethell's forthcoming stealth game Volume. Don't those smiling faces and propagandist statements just give you the willies? It's enough to send a chill down your spine. Volume aims to launch later this year on PlayStation 4, Vita, Windows PC and Mac.

Tangiers is one surreal stealth game

I had heard the name "Tangiers" before but wasn't aware of what kind of game it'd be. I'm still not entirely sure, even after watching this new trailer. It's labeled as stealth, though the genre connections aren't super clea...

Tarsier Studios presents Hunger, a surreal action adventure

Tarsier Studios did an excellent job on LittleBigPlanet Vita, and I thoroughly enjoyed my time with it. Their new project Hunger looks like a decidedly different affair, a much more mythical story with somber tones and stealt...

Review: Republique: Metamorphosis photo
Review: Republique: Metamorphosis
by Chris Carter

Republique started off with a lot to prove. As a Kickstarted stealth game featuring stars like David Hayter and Jennifer Hale, the project garnered an equal amount of high expectations and skepticism. The move towards an episodic format and a backer reward snafu further added fuel to the fire.

But after playing through Republique's second episode, it's very clear to me that they have a long-term gameplan for this.

Sir, You Are Being Hunted is out of Early Access with version 1.0

In most cases, I like to pass on alpha and even beta builds of games in favor of waiting for a more polished, more realized "full release" version. That's especially true if I think I'm going to really like the game in quest...

Read the writing on the wall with Invisible, Inc. photo
Read the writing on the wall with Invisible, Inc.
by Darren Nakamura

Turn-based tactical espionage. Those words were all it took to sell me on the idea of Invisible, Inc. Going into the PAX demo, I knew I would have to be cunning, thoughtful, and sneaky if I wanted to successfully steal intelligence and make it out alive.

As it turns out, I overestimated how cunning, thoughtful, and sneaky I am. Invisible, Inc. requires proper espionage; players who run in and try to blow stuff up like James Bond will not make it far. Even those who play cautiously will often find themselves in sticky situations, outnumbered and outgunned with no hope for a clean exit.
