Review: Rayman Mini

Rayman is one of those series that I'm glad never died. So many mascot platformers were unceremoniously killed off (seriously, where's my Jersey Devil and Aero the Acro-Bat remasters?), but Rayman endured, even with new ...

Here are six games to play with the tiny humans in your life

I'm creeping into my late twenties, which means a lot of the people in my social circles are getting married and deciding to have children. Instead of buying sarcastic t-shirts about how I am very much not about that life right now, while s...

Review: Splasher

Splasher is a love letter to the twitch platforming genre, and it wears its influences on its sleeves proudly. The shadow of Super Meat Boy can be felt in almost every aspect of this game, but it introduces enough new mechanics to...

Designer Michel Ancel has given us Rayman fans something to daydream about: the prospect of an eventual new installment in the platformer series. Writing on Instagram as he's wont to do, Ancel said that "After Wild, after BGE2, we'll need t...

Review: Rayman Legends: Definitive Edition

I've been a huge fan of Rayman's revival period. After the Rabbids spun off into their own universe (which even got big enough to crossover with Mario recently), and Rayman fell into relative obscurity, I was extremely delighted to play thr...

Last year, Rayman creators Frédéric Houde and Michel Ancel shared a cool discovery: an unfinished Super Nintendo version of Rayman that was believed to be lost to time. It was a neat piece of video game history, and this week,...

Celebrate 30 years of Ubisoft with free stuff for a month!

Despite Ubisoft giving out a game each month for the past half a year, I forgot it was the 30th anniversary of the company. While I used to appreciate its risk taking when it came to developing new games, the company has become a bit compla...

Rayman Legends is now backward compatible...wait, what?

In a bizarre (and pro-consumer) move, Rayman Legends for Xbox 360 is now backward compatible on Xbox One. While the game received a native Xbox One version in recent years, I guess Ubisoft and Microsoft are trying to gain some goodwill by n...

Good-ass Rayman Origins is free as hell today, come get it

Rayman Origins is five years old this year and I can't think of a pure platformer I've enjoyed more in those five years. As part of Ubisoft's dirty 30 birthday celebration, it's free as hell to download right here. Just sign in with a Uplay...

Rayman Origins will be free on PC later this month

Rayman Origins probably should have been bigger than it was. Ubisoft noted that the game was "profitable," but refrained from calling it a rip-roaring sales success, and only pushed 50,000 units in its first month of release. Even so, it li...

Can we take a moment to appreciate how well Rayman Origins turned out? After a slew of ports, 3D sequels, and spin-offs, Ubisoft finally worked its way back to the series' side-scrolling roots for a modern successor and the end result was t...

The Humble Ubisoft Bundle adds Blood Dragon

I'm with Brett: the lowest tier in the Humble Ubisoft Bundle is worth springing for if you haven't played Call of Juarez: Gunslinger or Grow Home or Rayman Origins. It's one dollar for all three! The bundle's next tier up (around $8) is als...

Review: Rayman Adventures

Rayman has had a good run of it as of late. The last two console games -- Origins and Legends -- were fantastic platformers worthy of the highest praise. Now Ubisoft is testing the franchise's viability in the mobile waters w...
