  • Blog Post: The Deleted Content Of South Park: The Stick Of Truth

    When we visited Obsidian for our January 2012 cover story, the development of the game was fairly early on. In fact, it didn't even have its subtitle yet (we were told to refer to it as South park: The Video Game for our story). As such, we were shown a good amount of material that didn't make... More
  • Blog Post: Live Stream – South Park: The Stick Of Truth

    It's over! But you can check out the archive below. Today marks the release of the hilarious South Park: The Stick of Truth, and we're big fans of the game here at GI. We wanted to show off some of its humor and gameplay, so we'll be going live with it a little later on this afternoon. Andrew... More
  • Blog Post: Afterwords – Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag

    Even with a hood-wearing hero and hidden blades, Black Flag is a deviation from the series' tradition in many ways. It delivers a swashbuckling adventure more focused on gold and glory than previous installments, allowing players to plunder and pillage around the West Indies (read our review here... More
  • Blog Post: The Good And Bad Of Black Flag's Freedom Cry DLC

    This year’s installment of Assassin’s Creed is still inspiring some gamers to sail the seas and terrorize merchant vessels, but many have already completed the story. Freedom Cry is Ubisoft’s invitation for players to return to the world of Black Flag. This single-player DLC puts you... More
  • Blog Post: Top 50 Challenge – Splinter Cell: Blacklist

    I’ve always enjoyed this series’ slow and calculated gameplay, and thought Ubisoft’s reinvention of this formula in Splinter Cell: Conviction was fantastic. After reading Ben Reeves’ Blacklist review , which praised the story, customizable loadouts, and return of Spies Vs. Mercs... More
  • Blog Post: Quitting Assassin's Creed (For The Moment)

    I only played the beginning of the first Assassin's Creed title before losing interest. I don't remember turning away from it in disgust; I probably just got absorbed in something else more interesting at the time. I was slightly surprised, then, when I became excited for Assassin's Creed... More
  • Blog Post: Test Chamber – Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag

    The latest installment in the Assassin's Creed series is a drastic departure from its predecessors, focusing on the high-seas adventures of the pirate Edward Kenway. Though the nautical setting is different, the sandbox elements – like collecting trinkets and expanding your influence –... More
  • Blog Post: Five Things We Want To See In Assassin’s Creed

    I haven’t yet played Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag, other than some brief time with multiplayer at E3 earlier this year. Nonetheless, I’m a big fan of the franchise, and I’m always excited to hear about what Ubisoft is going to do next. With that in mind, here are five things... More
  • Blog Post: Catching Up With Next-Gen’s Racing Games

    Detailed car models and sprawling tracks make racing games great demonstrations of a console’s power. No new console generation is complete without a few racers to show off. The impending launch of the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One come with a bevy of choices for gearheads. Microsoft’s exclusive... More
  • Blog Post: Test Chamber – Splinter Cell: Blacklist

    Sam Fisher is back, even if he doesn't sound like the super spy of old. He may have a new voice, but Splinter Cell: Blacklist offers up the series' trademark stealth action and builds upon systems introduced in the awesome Conviction. We decided to bring it into the Test Chamber this week for... More
  • Blog Post: The ‘80s Strike Back: The Complete Story Behind Blood Dragon

    Nostalgia is a valuable currency in the video game industry. Nintendo’s biggest titles stick to decades-old formulas, and the indie scene is overflowing with pixelated throwbacks. Earlier this year, Ubisoft took a different approach to the ‘80s homage with Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon. The standalone... More
  • Blog Post: What Developers Are Saying About Xbox One

    You know what we think about the Xbox One, but what about the creative minds that may or may not eventually develop for Microsoft's nascent platform? We asked several developers, from creative director's on triple-A blockbusters to independent designers working on their own about their hopes... More
  • Blog Post: Live Stream – Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon

    Game Informer's weekly live stream show usually airs every Tuesday, but without a big release hitting yesterday, we decided to delay our silly little show until today so we could show you Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon in action. Blood Dragon is an homage to every neon-filled, post-apocalyptic dream we... More
  • Blog Post: Assassin’s Creed III: The Redemption DLC Impressions

    Despite mixed feelings I’ve had about parts one and two of The Tyranny of King Washington, I was looking forward to seeing how the story wraps up. This week, Ubisoft released the final piece of the puzzle, making this an ideal time to hop in and play the whole experience in one pass. Is this third... More
  • Blog Post: The Writers' Room: Revealing The Art And Science Of Game Writing

    Whether we're following Mario as he leaps through pipes to rescue an abducted princess or sculpting the saga of Commander Shepard in the midst of a universe-spanning war, most video games have stories to tell. Even Ms. Pac-Man – a game about a hockey puck that eats pellets – provides... More
  • Blog Post: Assassin’s Creed III: The Betrayal DLC Impressions

    The second part of the single-player DLC is out, but a mixed bag of cool powers, poor missions, and stilted story don’t come together well. Ubisoft is rolling out an interesting approach to single-player DLC for Assassin’s Creed III. The three-part Tyranny of King Washington presents an alternate... More
  • Blog Post: The True History Of Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag

    We speak with Colin Woodard, the historian who literally wrote the book on the golden age of piracy. His insight offers plenty of hints about what to expect in the upcoming game. Colin Woodard is no stranger to the world of pirates. His 2008 book, The Republic of Pirates , is a thorough and fascinating... More
  • Blog Post: The Best Manga And Anime-Based Games

    Unfortunately for Japanese manga and anime fans, the majority of video games based on those two mediums don’t often make it to our shores. Reasons such as licensing and popularity get in the way, but every once in a while we’re lucky enough to get something based on our favorite franchises... More
  • Blog Post: How Wind Waker and Red Dead Redemption Informed Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag

    While the gut reaction when seeing an Assassin's Creed game set during the golden age of piracy is to assume the team looked to the Pirates of the Caribbean for inspiration, but the team at Ubisoft Montreal is going for a much more grounded approach for Black Flag. With inspirations ranging from... More
  • Blog Post: Exploring The Open World Of Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag

    Last year at E3, Ubisoft surprised the world with the reveal of full-fledged naval combat in Assassin's Creed III. While beautiful and entertaining, commanding a boat was limited to relatively brief and isolated missions. With Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag, the team at Ubisoft Montreal is blowing... More
