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...

Michel Ancel wants to bring Rayman back after Wild and BG&E2

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...

Go play the Rayman Legends demo on Nintendo Switch

The demo for Rayman Legends: Definitive Edition is now live on Nintendo Switch, and with that, today just got a little brighter. Just head over to the eShop, go to "Coming Soon," and then shimmy on down past Troll and I and other listings u...

That rare Rayman prototype for Super Nintendo is playable

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...

Rayman creators find rare Super Nintendo version

Rayman creators Frédéric Houde and Michel Ancel have stumbled upon an unreleased, unfinished Super Nintendo version of the platforming game previously thought to be lost forever. Somehow, it still works!

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...

The wonderful Rayman Origins is now playable on Xbox One

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...

Next month's Rayman looks great, I'll probably never play it

People have said nothing but good things about Rayman Jungle Run and the third mobile Rayman game using the same assets (after Fiesta Run), Rayman Adventures, looks great. And while Jungle Run was limited as an endless runner (though, agai...

Report unearths more info for canceled Rayman 4

Once upon a time, Rayman 4 was in the works, but was mysteriously canceled, and abruptly into Raving Rabbids. While we have no idea how good Rayman 4 may have actually been, based on this report from Unseen64, it sounds a hell of...

Rayman creator designed a level in Super Mario Maker

Remember when Rayman creator Michel Ancel admitted he doesn't like Mario games? They weren't his cup of tea, he said, which is silly, because of course they are not a cup of tea, belonging to him or otherwise. Anyways, be the change you wan...

Too bad Rayman Adventures is skipping consoles

Ubisoft has another Rayman in the works for smartphones and tablets. It's pretty! Almost as pretty as Rayman Legends which, despite being phenomenal, not enough folks played. This time, players will be able to move freely through the world...

March's Games with Gold are some of the best games

In the recent past, Xbox Live's Games with Gold program has had mostly the same cadence every month: a standout title, an indie game, and a bit of filler. March breaks that mold with three superb games from 2013. March's Xbox One title is ...

Rumor: Rayman might be coming to Smash Bros.

[Update: It's fake, as shown in the video above. While it's nice to have a detailed explanation on how this fake was made, what I really want is a detailed explanation on why it was made, preferably with sideline psychoanalysis from D...

Don't expect a whole lot of new AAA IPs from Ubisoft

Games Industry International recently had a chance to chat with Ubisoft CEO Yves Guilemot, and the topics mostly focused on where the company was headed -- and the fate of new IPs. Yves notes that there's a difference between Ubisoft (...

Just remembered my new FFXIV Samurai/Monk armor was very much pulled from FFTs female Im hoping that if FFT-themed stuff drops from Rabanastre, then FFXII judge gear drops from future Invalice I mean, how could they not do that?

Tucker & Dale vs Evil was a pretty good comedy horror Several of the deaths were pretty funny, and the ending did a good job of wrapping things
