You won't be decapitating anybody in Assassin's Creed Unity

Early marketing materials for Assassin's Creed Unity have largely included guillotines, headless bodies, and severed heads on pikes. It makes sense; the clash of classes that was the French Revolution was an awfully bloody affair, and decapitations played a major role.

However, when Unity hits shelves, players won't actually be able to take that aspect of the revolution into their own hands. When asked if decapitations are available in gameplay during a recent Q&A session over Twitter, protagonist Arno Dorian's voice actor Dan Jeannotte commented "The marketing guys are telling me 'no, no it is not possible.'"

While Ubisoft made the unsurprising call to not let you cut the head off of every guard you come across, there's sure to be plenty of decapitations and severed heads during cut scenes and scattered about the environment. Besides, just because this method's off the table doesn't mean there aren't a ton of other violent means at your disposal.

What the hell, Assassin's Creed? Time-travel isn't part of the deal

There are just too many assassins in the new AC Unity TV ad

The new Assassin's Creed Unity television spot sheds a few tears, but it sheds way more blood. That's what happens when it figuratively rains assassins in the streets, from the roofs, and through the windows. Sometimes it takes a flood to spark a revolution.more

Assassin's Creed Unity and Rogue PAX impressions

I still haven't beaten that Bloodborne TGS demo

Usually seeing a demo you played just a month ago means there isn't too much more to wring out. This is not the case with Bloodborne. The Tokyo Game Show demo bested me. That same demo was playable today at Paris Games Week. ...more

Laser Fury looks like Diablo but neon and radical

I do not mean to suggest that Diablo is not good, but the dreary look never really grabbed me, even with Diablo III's improvements in that respect. Laser Fury, on the other hand, takes a hold of my eyes immediately...more
