Why we should celebrate extra options in games

Right – let me start this article by exposing my biases. Namely, one of the first games I played to the point of obsession was The Sims, and as everyone knows, The Sims is a highly modular game. Since the very beginning, the Sims seri...

Watch Dogs 2's next patch adds paintball guns, new MP modes

Even with a season pass loaded with pointless stuff, Watch Dogs 2 keeps receiving a bunch of free DLC. That is a pretty nice gesture, especially since this newest update looks to be adding something super cool. Along with a new PvP mode cal...

It's nice to see Watch Dogs 2 get a three-hour demo

Watch Dogs 2 is still on my backburner, but I keep seeing tweets about the clothing options that kiiinda make me want to get into this game just to play dress up and screw around in San Francisco. Rather surprisingly, Ubisoft has issued a ...

Peter Glagowski's personal picks for Game of the Year 2016

2016 wasn’t the best year for gaming, at least in my opinion. We definitely saw some solid titles come out (along with the end of a decade-long wait for two games!), but a lot of the major releases this year were retreads of tired the...

The Last Guardian is selling decently in the UK

The wait was excruciating, but it seems to have paid off for Sony's Japan Studio. The Last Guardian has sold better than both Ico and Shadow of the Colossus did on launch in the UK, but its performance hasn't placed it at number one. Losing...

Ubisoft has plans for a theme park in the UAE

Many people may have forgotten, but Ubisoft announced last year that it was looking to expand into the theme park game. Its plans included a "next-gen" theme park in Malaysia with a tentative opening of 2020. It looks like Ubisoft isn't don...

PC Port Report: Watch Dogs 2

The PC port for Watch_Dogs, on release, barely managed to run. It was missing graphical features found on consoles and looked nothing like the initial trailer shown in 2012. Not much of what Ubisoft had claimed about the port was present an...

Watch Dogs 2 PC edition launch deals at 20% off

Hey, good news everyone. It looks like the delay did the trick because by all accounts thus far, the Watch Dogs 2 PC port has been well received. This might be one of those special Ubisoft moments that you should shed a tear for. At least i...

Ubisoft is vowing to not make DLC feel required

In a rather short interview over on GamesIndustry.biz, Ubisoft's vice president of Live Operations, Anne Blondel-Jouin, has stated that Ubisoft will no longer be making DLC that gamers feel obligated to buy. While the company seems to be lo...

Ubisoft is patching the genitalia out of Watch Dogs 2

I have to say, it's stories like this that make me really appreciate writing for a video games blog. Not because of the actual news itself, but because I finally have an outlet where it's not only appropriate, but somehow part of the job, t...

Review: Watch Dogs 2

Since releasing in 2014, Ubisoft's Watch Dogs has meant something different to almost everyone who played it. Though the open-world hack-a-thon is often critiqued for lacking personality and the graphical downgrade debacle, it sti...

Contemplate the human condition for $40 in Watch Dogs 2

Are you interested in what Watch Dogs 2 has in store for its season pass? No? That's too bad, because Ubisoft has revealed all of the content planned for its upcoming hack-a-thon sequel and it certainly "sounds" like $40 worth of stuff. I e...

Initial thoughts on Nintendo Switch

I love it when things slide into place and then click to fasten. Holy cow, that click on the Nintendo Switch. It's so gratifying. I will probably slide the Switch's Joy-Cons in and out, in and out, savoring each delicious snap. And I'm not ...

Watch Dogs 2 will be two weeks late on PC

Time has taught me not to expect day-and-date parity between console and PC versions of Ubisoft games, so it's not exactly unexpected to hear Watch Dogs 2 is facing that same situation. The PC version is now aiming for November 29, 2016, tw...
