  • Blog Post: Just Cause 3 Won't Launch With Multiplayer, But Don't Give Up Hope

    When Just Cause 3 releases next year for PS4, Xbox One, and PC, it won’t come bundled with a multiplayer mode, but that doesn’t have to stop Avalanche Studios – or anyone else – from adding multiplayer to the game after the fact. What are the chances that Just Cause 3 will eventually... More
  • Blog Post: Test Chamber – Bayonetta 2

    Bayonetta is back, and the stylish witch is armed to the teeth with even more crazy weapons and magical powers to combat the forces of heaven and hell. This Wii U-exclusive sequel is available today, and it meets the high bar set by the original. I reviewed Bayonetta 2 and thought it was a blast, so... More
  • Blog Post: Welcome To Chaos: Where Shadow Of Mordor’s World Hits The Mark

    We often hear the phrase, "a living and breathing world" describing open-world games, and yet very few actually feel that way. NPCs look vacant, enemies follow easy-to-predict patterns, and events rarely happen as organically as they should. I've been playing Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor... More
  • Blog Post: Games To Beat In A Day – Portal

    Valve's Portal is one of the greatest feats of game design of the last decade. It's also a testament to the power of brevity. Portal was a unique game. It started as a student project entitled Narbacular Drop, which had the now-iconic "portal" gameplay but lacked in storytelling, polish... More
  • Blog Post: Exploring The Concept Art Of Assassin's Creed Unity

    Establishing the themes and mood for games in concept art is essential. These ideas often give birth to even more creative implementations. Assassin's Creed Unity is no different. The French Revolution drove much of its initial art and introduced some of the important conflicts the writers wanted... More
  • Blog Post: Get To Know Elise From Assassin’s Creed Unity

    So far, we’ve only seen a small slice of Elise De LaSerre in her reveal trailer , but it was enough to get people speculating, especially the revelation that she’s a Templar. When we visited Ubisoft Montreal for our cover story , Ubisoft opened up about the enigmatic red-head and her role... More
  • Blog Post: Get To Know Arno From Assassin’s Creed Unity

    Assassin’s Creed Unity takes place during the French Revolution, but that’s not the only battle new protagonist Arno Dorian has to face. The ideals and extremism of the time merely provide a compelling backdrop for Arno’s personal struggles. France is full of shades of gray, forcing... More
  • Blog Post: Assassins Unite: Our Hands-On Impressions Of Assassin’s Creed Unity

    For the first time, the Assassin's Creed series will introduce seamless cooperative play into the mix with Assassin's Creed Unity. This was one of the most requested features from fans and something Ubisoft was just as passionate about including. During our recent cover story trip to Ubisoft... More
  • Blog Post: Test Chamber – Super Time Force

    No point in Earth's timeline is safe from Capybara Games' (Superbrothers: Swords & Sworcery EP, Below) new adventure. Super Time Force is a downloadable, 2D adventure that encourages players to die, rewind time, and play alongside their fallen comrades. We downloaded it onto an Xbox One and... More
  • Blog Post: Replay – Batman: Vengeance

    Batman has a rich cartoon legacy. Back in 2001, Ubisoft took advantage of The New Batman Adventures' art style and popularity to create a mediocre superhero game with decent production values. Let's see how Batman: Vengeance holds up against modern Batman games. We keep trucking in the second... More
  • Blog Post: Breaking Down Watch Dogs' Multiplayer Modes – Will They Be Meaningful?

    Watch Dogs is only a month away and while we had extensive hands-on time with it, we haven't yet explored the online play. Today, Ubisoft Montreal released a 9-minute trailer showing off three different ways the game incorporates multiplayer. Here is a breakdown of what's shown and if we think... More
  • Blog Post: Opinion: I Want More Fetch From Infamous: Second Son

    It's rare that I finish a game and immediately wonder about DLC, but as soon as I finished Infamous: Second Son, I wanted see more of Fetch. It felt like my time with her ended way too soon. Fetch, aka Abigail Walker, is my favorite character in Infamous: Second Son, so I was bummed that I didn't... More
  • Blog Post: Afterwords: Thief Devs Shed Light On Long Loads, Dishonored Similarities

    Thief is a fairly traditional stealth game that pays homage to its original series class roots. While some people felt that it might not have been innovative enough, we had a lot of fun sneaking through its shadows. We spoke to senior producer Stéphane Roy about the game’s much debated development... More
  • Blog Post: 2013 Action Game Of The Year Awards

    For all intents and purposes, 2013 was the final big year for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. These consoles went out with a bang rather than a whimper, and you'll see that reflected in the excellent action games we call attention to in this article. Here are the award-winning games in the action... More
  • Blog Post: Top 50 Challenge – Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time

    I love to play platformers, but it's fair to say many series have shifted from their old-school base. Even as a Ratchet and Clank fan, I've seen a series that once was only about adventuring tap into new ventures like tower defense, which has been a bit disappointing for me. So when Matt Helgeson... More
  • Blog Post: Fight For The Top 50 – Dead Space 3

    The third installment in Isaac Clarke’s battle against the necromorphs blew me away when it released earlier this year. Dead Space 3 took the core combat I loved about the series and ratcheted it up with meaner enemies and a deep weapon crafting system. The third game integrated co-op that toyed... More
  • Blog Post: Fight For The Top 50 – Splinter Cell: Blacklist

    The only part of hide and seek I ever really liked was the hiding. I love being a ninja – watching others and knowing they can't see me. I love the idea of getting so close to someone that you could touch them, and yet they have no idea that you're there. Some people would call me a creeper... More
  • Blog Post: Test Chamber – Castlevania: Lords Of Shadow – Mirror Of Fate HD

    Konami released Castlevania: Lords of Shadow – Mirror of Fate on the Nintendo 3DS earlier this year. I liked MercurySteam's new take on the series' side-scrolling roots . Fans who don't own a 3DS or didn't get a chance to play it can get their hands on a high-definition version... More
  • Blog Post: The Next-Gen Tech Of The Order: 1886

    Graphical improvements in video games have become less dramatic with each new console generation. Games on the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 look gorgeous, but it’s challenging to point to specific examples describing why they look better than the 360 and PS3. Game Informer got the chance to see The... More
  • Blog Post: The Weapons And Gadgets Of The Order: 1886

    Certain Sony franchises are known for their creative weaponry. The gadgets of Isomniac’s Ratchet & Clank and Resistance series have weapons that turn their foes into snowmen or cover them with plague-infected goo. The weapons of Ready At Dawn’s The Order: 1886 aren’t quite as outlandish... More
