Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon may get a sequel

Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon went from an April Fools joke, to sort-of-kind-of a thing, to a real release. It pretty much came out of nowhere and wowed gamers of all shapes and sizes, which naturally leads to the burning question ...

Assassin's Creed will be annual until players say stop photo
Assassin's Creed will be annual until players say stop
by Fraser Brown

With the Assassin's Creed series getting new instalments annually, there are, perhaps, those who will grow tired of franchise -- if they haven't already. Since Assassin's Creed II, there's been a new title in the main series every year, the last one being Assassin's Creed III. Then there are all the spin-offs, comics, novels, shorts, and animated movies which, frankly, seem a tad unnecessary. That's just a lot of saturation.

Ubisoft Montreal's head honcho, Yannis Mallat, recently told Eurogamer at GDC that they have no intention of taking a breather, as he believes that fans are eager for more. "The players will tell us. Right now there are more and more coming into the franchise, so I don't see that day ... It's our breakthrough. When you have quality content, the frequency of coming out with the game is not an issue at all."

With Assassin's Creed III being the most successful game in the series, inexplicably, to me, the numbers appear to be on Mallat's side. There are several teams working on Assassin's Creed titles, so at least the same teams aren't having to split their time between, say, Black Flag, and the yet unrevealed title being planned for next year.

Review: Cognition: An Erica Reed Thriller - Episode 2 photo
Review: Cognition: An Erica Reed Thriller - Episode 2
by Fraser Brown

The coffee in Boston's FBI offices must be a really special kind of black sludge, capable of turning ordinary investigators into relentless machines. Or maybe Special Agent Erica Reed has just transcended the need for rest or relaxation, for a mere day after the traumatic events of The Hangman, she's back at work, solving another gruesome case.

Cognition's second episode, The Wise Monkey, has clearly been developed by a team growing in confidence. It's a tightly-paced thriller, more comfortable in its homage to televised serial police dramas than its predecessor. Yet, sacrifices have been made to keep up the tension, and some missing elements stop this from being the significant improvement it could have been, leaving it lacking in the characters and relationships that make dramas compelling.

Runescape 3 pops into existence this summer

My first foray into the world of Runescape was a less than successful one. I was a wee bit lost, chopping wood and not really knowing what to do with it, when I asked a friendly looking chap for a bit of advice. He promptly ...

Preview: Anomaly 2
by Sterling Aiayla Lyons

Anomaly: Warzone Earth had one of those experimental ideas -- controlling the troops that rush past towers rather than the defensive structures themselves -- that turned out to be really cool in practice. I don't know for certain if the game arose just purely out of experimentation around a single idea, or if perhaps the developers instead saw an opportunity to do something unique in a stagnant market for the genre. In any case, the result was a pretty great game.

I recently got the chance to check out a preview build of the upcoming sequel, Anomaly 2. I remembered spending a lot of time with the first one once I got it on my Android phone and enjoying playing it, so I was eager to jump in and check out what new goodies and updates were in store with the follow-up game.
