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...   read

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...   read

Rayman Origins out today for PC via digital distribution

I'm hopeful that Rayman Origins will have a long-tail success; it would be tragic for a game this aesthetically pleasing to go unplayed by the masses. As of today, you can grab it on Steam or directly from Ubisoft for an affordable $29.99. ...   read

Review: Rayman Origins (Vita)

Once again, Rayman Origins is a 2D side-scrolling dream come, except this time it's on a smaller screen. One of the best and most beautiful games of last year returns on the PlayStation Vita for launch, and I had absolutely no problem ...   read

PSA: Rayman Origins is out in stores today!

Usually we don't do these kind of "PSA" posts for retail games, but with Ubisoft sending the poor game out the same week as Saints Row: The Third, Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3, Halo: Anniversary and even its own Assassin's Creed: Revelation...   read

Review: Rayman Origins

So, here's a funny story about my experience reviewing Rayman Origins. Sometimes when we receive a game for review, it's not exactly the final code, but a build intended to run on a version of the console hardware which isn't the standard o...   read

You should be paying attention to Rayman Origins

Rayman Origins is out next week. Sadly, yet understandably, there isn't a noticeable buzz surrounding the title -- certainly not at the level of productivity-enders Modern Warfare 3 and Skyrim. It is a full-priced 2D platformer, which rubs...   read

Hands-on: Rayman Origins

The Rayman Origins booth at the EB Games Expo on Australia's Gold Coast was an area I thought would be largely ignored. Given the hours people were waiting to play Battlefield 3 or merely watch a section of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, I wa...   read

Check out this Europe-only Rayman Origins limited edition

With a game so closely connected to France, it's fitting that this Rayman Origins collector's edition is restricted to Europe. Doesn't make it any less painful though, since I think I'd really like to have this one. It's not the most luxuri...   read

Rayman Origins gets 'slap bag' with Best Buy pre-order

If you pre-order Rayman Origins from Best Buy, you get one of those inflatable bags that bounce back up when you punch them. Remember those? They had things like Bugs Bunny or Hulk Hogan on them, and they were such a scream! Best Buy is bri...   read

New Rayman Origins trailer takes you around the world

So good. Look at it! At this point, Ubisoft really can't give us anything else to make me want Rayman Origins more. The graphics whore in me is all ooh-la-la about the visuals, but it's the 2D platforming roots at my very core that call ou...   read

TGS: Rayman Origins on Vita looks like a PS3 game

Console quality in portable games is officially here with Ubisoft's Rayman Origins on PS Vita. I say this because the Vita version I saw today looks a lot like its console counterpart. There may be slight differences, but in no way would I ...   read

SDCC: Have a cute trailer for Rayman Origins

2D platformers fell out of favor with publishers a long time ago, which is why titles like Rayman Origins make me happy. Here's a shamelessly old school platformer, and it's looking damn sexy.  This new trailer shows off some of the a...   read
