Mario’s power as an icon is defined by his versatility. The plumber doesn’t just jump: he fights, he drives, he plays sports, he parties. He does it all, really, without ever looking out of place. And yet earlier in the year, the announcement of a Mario and Rabbids mash-up was met by some skepticism on the internet.…
There are better Star Trek video games out there, but none that come close to delivering the immersive cooperative experience offered by Ubisoft’s virtual reality-powered Star Trek: Bridge Crew. It’s the closest you can get to being on the bridge of a Federation starship.
The Pirate Bay is about to turn 13, and in honour of the site becoming a teenager, folks like Torrentfreak are checking out the oldest content that has been continuously available since its launch back in 2003.
For a while there, Ubisoft kept pumping Assassin’s Creed games out like they were going out of style. The French game publisher cranked them out once a year, effects on quality or franchise fatigue be damned. A new interview with the star of the Assassin’s Creed movie make it sound like Hollywood’s ready to mimic that…
Watch Dogs 2 is just a game, sitting on a screen, asking you to love it. Sometimes begging.
The Uncharted film’s new writer, Joe Carnahan, is looking for a little creative help in bringing the video game to life, so he’s reaching out to the source.
Ubisoft’s next South Park game will cast Cartman, Kyle and the other foul-mouthed schoolkids as caped crusaders. Why? Because the boys want to set up billion-dollar movie franchises, of course.
Oh hey, Hollywood is making a big time Assassin’s Creed motion picture. Last night, the film’s trailer debuted, and the internet has opinions about it. The internet always has opinions. Always.
Nimble parkour movies, genetic time travel and wrist-mounted blade kills... yep, this sure looks like Assassin’s Creed. Will it be any good, though? We’ll know in December.
Assassin’s Creed Syndicate is—wait for it—an Assassin’s Creed game, with all that that implies.
What if I told you that hunky Far Cry 1 star Jack Carver and creepy Far Cry 2 villain The Jackal were the same person? To quote Eurogamer’s Ian Higton: “The clue is in the name, people!”
I may not have liked Assassin's Creed Unity very much, but I was still excited about its free expansion Dead Kings, which then went and failed on me twice in its first two missions.
New-gen consoles have barely been out for a year, but there's already a familiar story: a game launches and runs great on the PS4 and Xbox One, much less so on the PS3 and 360. Shadow of Mordor was an egregious example of this performance gap, but it's not the only one. Is there any hope for last-gen gamers?
Who knew Parisian adventures of sneaky assassinations could be improved with a few choice bugs and hiccups?
My first question for Watch Dogs was, "Well, what if I don't want to shoot Maurice?"
If you're a hardcore gamer, you probably know Snowdrop, the new game engine used in the new Tom Clancy's The Division. I'm not, so I learned about Snowdrop through this new video just released for the Game Developers Conference 2014. It's unbelievable.
Oh my goodness. Here I am, sitting in the Gawker Media offices on another Friday morning, just trying to get through the day, when suddenly Ubisoft releases 13 minutes of footage from South Park: The Stick of Truth and now I can't stop giggling at my desk and this is all quite embarrassing.
