Assassin's Creed Chronicles: China

04-21-2015

Just last week I asked readers if they were into the idea of 2D Assassin's Creed games. Roughly 41% were on board, 33% preferred the 3D iterations, and 26% have checked out of the series entirely. Ubisoft doesn't really care what you think, though. As long as they sell, those assassins will keep on stabbin'.

Assassin's Creed Unity

02-27-2015

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...


 

Assassin's Creed: Unity

11-10-2014

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 ...

A Valley Without Wind

05-06-2012

A Valley Without Wind has always been a tantalizing prospect with noble ideas, held back by a troubled visual presentation. Having gone through multiple artistic shifts, the final product still looks hastily cobbled together,...

Air Conflicts: Secret Wars

07-21-2011

Combat flight simulators are not exactly the hottest genre in town, especially on the consoles. Whereas IL-2 Sturmovik dominates all opposition on the PC, the console games are almost universally more arcade-oriented. And wit...

All Zombies Must Die!

01-03-2012

As 2011 closed out it only seemed fitting that the gaming community was, once again, presented with the chance to take a shotgun to the head of its most overused mascot, the zombie. I mean, it was only last week when the l...

Anodyne

05-03-2013

Anodyne is a cool little top-down dungeon crawler with an obvious problem: it isn’t Zelda. Though I would normally feel like a jerk criticizing a small indie title for not stacking up to Nintendo’s legendary series, the game itself forces the comparison, lifting not just the basic gameplay elements of the classic 2D Zelda games, but also various art cues and enemy designs.

Assassin's Creed III: Tyranny of King Washington: The Infamy

02-20-2013

At long last, the highly hyped expansion for Assassin's Creed III is here, and it's split into three parts. The first portion, called "The Infamy" sets up an alternate reality scenario where George Washington, now "King Washi...

Assassin's Creed Unity: Dead Kings

01-15-2015

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 n...

ATV Wild Ride 3D

Renegade Kid has been pumping out some amazing retro experiences lately, and if you've yet to bite, maybe this 3DS and Wii U sale will change your mind. Starting September 12th, you can get 30% off of Mutant Mudds (3DS), Bomb...

A Game of Dwarves

11-05-2012

I don't recall exactly when management games became unpopular. One day we were mastering the systems of "Theme" this or "Tycoon" that, and almost certainly dabbling in the field of dungeon administration, but then suddenly we...

Ace Combat: Assault Horizon Legacy+

02-16-2015

Japanese publishers have some truly confusing localization titles sometimes. In 2011, Namco Bandai released Ace Combat: Assault Horizon for the PS3 and Xbox 360. It was a grittier take on the franchise that added real-wo...

Ash

12-17-2010

A lot of high profile iOS games have been flooding the market recently, and while we'd love to review them all, many of them slip through the cracks. We'd also love to give each game its own dedicated review, but the nature o...

Assassin's Creed III: The Betrayal

03-20-2013

Ubisoft has a lot to prove with its "what if" story of an evil George Washington. The first episode wasn't nearly as enthralling as Ubisoft had promised, mostly due to the fact that it felt like a lot was held back in favor of splitting it into three parts. The second portion, titled The Betrayal, in some ways, is a step forward -- a very, very small step forward, and a step back, that is.

Atelier Ayesha: The Alchemist of Dusk

03-12-2013

It’s a well-known fact that the gaming industry is sorely lacking in strong female leads, with the game shelf at the local Best Buy sometimes looking like a page torn from “Who’s Who Among Expressionless Whi...

Assassin's Creed Rogue

02-05-2015

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...

Atomic Ninjas

10-17-2013

Ninjas and explosions: two great tastes that you would think taste great together, right? Throw them in a pot, mix with weapons, gadgets, and frenetic multiplayer action, and you have a recipe for an awesome adventure. Sadly, I don't think this one cooked long enough.

Ace of Spades

01-24-2013

Prior to being picked up by Jagex and released to a wider audience on Steam, Ace of Spades had an alpha build that was available as a free download. While both versions carry the same name, it was the earlier Ace of Spades wi...

Analogue: A Hate Story

09-16-2013

Visual novels are cool games, but if there's a pet peeve I've developed with the genre lately, it's that most of them are PC-based. Visual Novels, dating sims, and the like are the perfect type of game to play on mobile and t...

Asphalt Injection

Just as I was settling in to start typing this review, I had to reach for the case while muttering, "What is this one even called?" Such is the existence of the Asphalt series, a racing game so indistinct that you could play ...

Asura's Wrath

We already reported that Street Fighter veteran Ryu would be coming to Asura's Wrath, but now we have evidence that Akuma is on his way as well. Will Asura be able to defend against the deadly Shun Goku Satsu?! Tune into "As...

A Game of Thrones: Genesis

While fans of George R R Martin's epic fantasy saga, A Song of Ice and Fire, are used to putting up with the author's "it will be done when it's done" attitude, elsewhere in the franchise it's a lot more prolific. Hot on the ...

A New Beginning: Final Cut

01-04-2013

I've just saved the planet, and I couldn't be less enthused about it. A New Beginning is a self-styled eco-thriller with a spot of time travel and science fiction thrown in for good measure. It launched in Europe a couple of ...
