We'll find out for sure on May 12

Watch Dogs 2

Watch Dogs 2 is real according to a Ubisoft employee


Better keep that CV on a tighter leash

Funny glitch

His hair is made of the sky


Happy accident
Apr 03
If glitches had sequels, this would be the long-awaited follow-up to Mafia II's "his hair is made of little faces" bug. The accompanying line of dialogue -- "I don't give a fuck" -- makes it even better. How did this happen? ...

Like the Burger King of mayhem
Mar 30

Driver Speedboat Paradise

Ubisoft brings Driver back as a speedboat racer


Mobile speedboat racing
Mar 20
  Ubisoft is bringing back the classic series Driver as a speedboat racing game for mobile devices in April. I'm not quite sure how the series developed from a game about a getaway driver to racing speedboats, but they can't just let an IP die a peaceful death -- it has to buried alive.
Rainbow Six

Homewreckers wanted for the upcoming Rainbow Six Siege PC alpha


Sign-ups are open in North America and Europe
Mar 12
I'm a total newcomer to the Rainbow Six series but I quite liked Siege's wall-blasting ways at E3 last year. Not so much for the tactical possibilities that destructible environments enable as the simple human desire to punc...

Far Cry 4 DLC

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


Didn't think that was possible
Feb 26
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

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


*results not guaranteed
Feb 25
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.

Ubisoft

Stabs a thing or two along the way
Feb 05
For more than three months, Assassin's Creed Rogue has been an exclusive to legacy consoles. That'll change on March 10, as the PC version finally has a release date that's set in stone. Strangely, the word doesn't come...

Grow Home

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


Cute 3D platformer out now on Steam without Uplay
Feb 04
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...
