I wanted Rayman Legends to sell well. Most of us did, hopefully. It's an already terrific game that looks even better when put up against some of the other stuff Ubisoft releases. During an earnings call, Ubisoft CFO Alain Ma...
Splinter Cell: Conviction was, in my opinion, a superb new direction for the Splinter Cell series, but a fair few fans were unhappy with the changes Ubisoft made. It's hardly surprising then, that Splinter Cell: Blacklist pul...


Bloody hell, this week, calm down. A slew of games are clamouring for your attention over the next seven days, some of them really rather good. At the top of the pile, however, is Saints Row IV. I didn't think the series wou...
This latest Splinter Cell: Blacklist trailer reads like the Cliff's Notes to all the previous Blacklist trailers, summarizing the game's various aspects. There's the silly, hyper-organized terrorist attacks on the United Sta...
While Batman: Arkham Origins is passing on multiplayer for Wii U, Splinter Cell: Blacklist is going in the other direction in terms of missing functionality. Ubisoft's Wii U port will not support offline cooperative...
Sure, Ubisoft is skipping their usual gamescom press conference this year, but that doesn't mean they're going to have a light lineup at the show. In fact, Ubisoft will be unveiling a new next-gen game! On top of that, they'l...
One of my favorite multiplayer modes of all time is returning to Splinter Cell: Blacklist in the form of Spies vs. Mercs, and these two new videos will give you a rundown of each class. If you're itching for information, Com...
Don't litter, scumbag.

My GeForce GTX 580s are still doing okay, but I'd love to upgrade. The expected performance increase is incentive enough, but Nvidia has added more incentive with a newly announced deal that gives purchasers of a a GeFor...

At the beginning of the month, Ubisoft came out and said that it hadn't forgotten about South Park: The Stick of Truth, despite very little promotion after acquiring the game in the THQ fire-sale. That apparently still holds...
This trailer showing Splinter Cell: Blacklist's cooperative mode reminds me that, of all the things to get me interested in the game, it sure isn't the single-player campaign. Spies vs. Mercs and co-op, on the other hand, ha...
Splinter Cell: Blacklist will see the return of Spies vs. Mercs. If that news didn't get you excited at all then maybe this live-action take by the gang at CorridorDigital will. Their film production and editing keeps getting better with every video, and I'm beyond impressed with their latest efforts.
Confession time ladies and gents: I'm not a big Splinter Cell fan. I didn't much get into the first two, had an inexplicable obsession with Chaos Theory, largely passed on Double Agent, and only dabbled in Conviction. A disgr...
I have very fond memories of Splinter Cell's Spies vs. Mercs mode. The gametype debuted in Splinter Cell: Pandora Tomorrow (and was refined in Chaos Theory), and featured two distinctly different types of teams pit against e...
When we heard that Ubisoft would bring Splinter Cell: Blacklist to Wii U, few details were given other than the day-and-date release date with other game versions and brief mention of GamePad features. That last bit was not ...

Filmmaker Warialasky and friends made this live-action movie based on Splinter Cell: Conviction and it's pretty damn cool. There are several scenes in the film that's just one big long shot, which is no easy task to do. The ...
