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...   read

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...   read
