Toy Soldiers: War Chest is my kind of tower defense

The Toy Soldiers games were a blast on Xbox Live Arcade and I'm expecting more good things from Toy Soldiers: War Chest, coming to PC, PS4, and Xbox One early next year. My favorite tower defense titles are the ones that let...

Watch Assassin's Creed and play other Ubisoft games at PAX Prime

Ubisoft seemingly takes the same approach to all of its PAX showings -- theater presentations of Assassin's Creed, and playable demos of its other upcoming games. PAX Prime 2014 in Seattle next week is no different, except fo...

Watch Dogs will be Ubisoft's final M-rated Wii U game

Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot has spoken with Game Informer about what Wii U owners can expect to see from the company, and it's going to be more family-oriented games. Those sell well enough with that audience, while, unsurpris...

Far Cry 4's take on Shangri-La sure is stunning

As someone who tended to stick with the bow as the weapon of choice in Far Cry 3 -- and especially in Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon -- I like the look of the mythical Shangri-La in Far Cry 4. In these levels, you'll fight against ...

Here's a full look at one of Assassin's Creed Unity's open-ended missions

With Assassin's Creed Unity, Ubisoft is promising missions that feature multiple ways to complete a given objective. Hamza talked about this "black box" design in his recent preview, and here's a look at one of the ways an e...

Ubisoft reminds us that The Crew isn't coming to the PS3 or Wii U, but is coming to Xbox 360

The Wii U still isn't in a good spot with third parties. There's a running gag in the industry that something is coming to "every console ever...except!" and everyone chimes in "the Wii U." It's a shame, because it's currentl...

How Far Cry 4 plans on making memorable missions

Think back on Far Cry 3. Reflect on all the memorable moments you had with that game. What sticks out the most? The missions or the unscripted stuff that happened in the open world? Chances are you primarily remember the unsc...

Command a tiger that can turn invisible in Far Cry 4 photo
Command a tiger that can turn invisible in Far Cry 4
by Hamza CTZ Aziz

Far Cry 3 had some pretty wild moments. Like, remember when Vaas was dancing around on the stripper pole? Good stuff. Far Cry 4 will have some crazy segments as well, but these are a little more grounded to the core of the game. 

Scattered around Kyrat are hidden tankas that, once discovered, allow the main character to meditate and travel to Shangri-La to relieve the life of a legendary warrior. You'll be transported to a surreal world with floating islands and you are equipped with only a bow and arrow to take on the enemies of these environments. 

Oh, and you have a tiger that you can command to attack others. The tiger can also turn invisible.

Assassin's Creed Rogue gives you more open ocean goodness photo
Assassin's Creed Rogue gives you more open ocean goodness
by Hamza CTZ Aziz

Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag was a huge game. Like, you could easily sink 100 hours into that whole experience before getting 100 percent completion. So Assassin's Creed Rogue may or may not be quite the game for you. It just depends, really.

If you couldn't get enough of the pirate sailing and high seas traveling, then you'll be all over Rogue. (Those of you stuck on last-gen platforms, at least). If you've had more than your fill already though, well, Rogue may not have enough to offer you. 

Personally, I'm in the camp that's excited for Rogue. More so than Unity, in fact. The open ocean stuff still intrigues me enough to warrant another adventure on a map that's comparable to Assassin's Creed IV's. But more than that, I like the idea of playing as a Templar this time around.

Valiant Hearts coming to iOS devices on September 4

Valiant Hearts: The Great War was a wonderful experience that came out not too long ago on consoles and PC. And now it's set to arrive on iOS devices on September 4. Same game, just controls redesigned with touch screen in mind. No price point was given, but now you will have no excuse to miss this one.
