It's 2016 and Ezio Auditore da Firenze is about to waltz back into our lives. He's proverbially old -- Assassin's Creed II came out in 2009 -- and literally old as we'll see in Revelations. He's looking better than we remember him, th...   read

GTA Online brings the fight to the Game Grid with Tron-like lightcycle battles

Red Dead Redemption 2 teaser teases and not much else

Watch Dogs 2 will be two weeks late on PC
