  • Blog Post: The Orchestrator Of The Fake Super Smash Bros. Rayman Leak Tells Us Why He Did It

    Fake leaks and falsified video game documents appear online every day, but Omni Jacala's fake Super Smash Bros. Rayman leak is a cut above the rest. The attention to detail and amount of original artwork created fooled many. Even in retrospect, it's hard to distinguish Jacala's work from... More
  • Blog Post: Test Chamber – Far Cry 4's Escape From Durgesh Prison DLC

    Far Cry 4 is the type of game we love to get lost in. There's a wealth of animals to hunt and side missions to accomplish, making it easy to ignore the main campaign. If you're all finished with the game, or looking for a more focused distraction from the campaign, the Escape from Durgesh Prison... More
  • Blog Post: Test Chamber – Assassin’s Creed Unity's Dead Kings DLC

    Originally, Dead Kings was planned as a traditional DLC release from Ubisoft – part of a season pass that would expand the Unity experience beyond the launch game. However, the abundant technical problems of that launch game prompted Ubisoft to change its tune, and as a conciliatory gesture to... More
  • Blog Post: Moments: The Madness Of Far Cry 4

    A good open world is about more than just the map's size and its number of missions. The world has to feel like one – complete with A.I. and an environment that feels natural. Far Cry 4 definitely has this; proving itself with a bizarre and amusing series of events. Walking along the countryside... More
  • Blog Post: Where Assassin's Creed Should Go Next: The First Civilization

    I'm growing disenchanted with the Assassin's Creed games, a series that once dazzled me with its melding of period piece storytelling and secrets tied to an ancient civilization possessing technology far beyond ours today. Ubisoft's focus is now mostly on exploring the past, something they... More
  • Blog Post: How To Play Far Cry 4 Without Firing A Shot

    I rarely play video games while my daughter is awake. Most of the games I want to play contain content not suited to her age, but I also want video games to be something she and I enjoy together, not just some dumb old thing daddy does while she plays with her own toys. She’s not quite ready to... More
  • Blog Post: Top 50 Challenge 2014 – Assassin's Creed Rogue

    I used to love Taco Bell's Gorditas (it was a strange sickness); I ate them for lunch and dinner, and then dinner again. Gorditas fueled my college education, but I eventually consumed so many of the tasty snacks that I grew tired of them. I broke my Gorditas taste buds, and even now, I can't... More
  • Blog Post: Top 50 Challenge 2014 - Assassin's Creed Unity

    I always look forward to playing a new Assassin's Creed game each year. When the Animus is roaring at the peak of its capabilities, traveling back to a pivotal point in human history is likely one of the best experiences of the year. But as we all know, the Animus is often unreliable, and can deliver... More
  • Blog Post: Fight For The Top 50 2014 – Assassin's Creed Rogue

    Having not played Assassin’s Creed Black Flag, there was a lot for me to love in this game. The seafaring battles and navigation can be very cinematic and immersive. The intertwining story elements from other games and various new stealth mechanics kept things fun and interesting. But the most... More
  • Blog Post: Fight For The Top 50 2014 – Assassin's Creed Unity

    Assassin's Creed is an annualized series, but that doesn't mean that Assassin's Creed Unity itself should be taken for granted. In some ways the game represents a return to form of the franchise's heyday with Ezio Auditore; fulfilling many of the hopes I had for this title and making... More
  • Blog Post: Opinion – Bugs Happen, Broken Games Shouldn’t

    While 2014 has seen its share of delays, we certainly have no shortage of games available this holiday season. Unfortunately, in the flood of releases, multiple titles have simply not worked at launch. The relationship between a consumer and a game changes when launch day arrives. The long period represented... More
  • Blog Post: Comparing Far Cry 4 On The Old & New Systems

    Everything you've seen so far regarding Far Cry 4 has been taken from the new-gen or PC versions of the game – a no-brainer when you want to show off the game in its best visual light. However, there will still be plenty of gamers getting the title on their Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3. If you're... More
  • Blog Post: Test Chamber – Far Cry 4's First Hour

    With Far Cry 3, Ubisoft hit on a beautiful formula for an open world first person shooter.

  • Blog Post: As Long As Microtransactions Are Profitable, They Aren't Going Anywhere

    Earlier today, we posted our review of Assassin's Creed Unity . As you may be aware, there is a furor among some readers over the inclusion of in-game microtransactions. We noted their inclusion in the latest Assassin's Creed title, stating that they are available to speed progression through... More

    Sarah Schachner is a rapidly rising star in the soundtrack world thanks to her work on the Ubisoft franchises Assassin's Creed and Far Cry.

  • Blog Post: Analysis – Game Resolution Matters As The Intersection Of Art, Science, And Business

    As I typically do at too-regular intervals, I looked back over the stories I’d written in the week prior to see what readers were most interested in. While I wasn’t entirely surprised, two stories caught my eye, both about the same, relatively inconsequential topic. The issue of resolution... More

  • Blog Post: From Revelations To Unity: Creative Directing Assassin's Creed

  • Blog Post: Games To Beat In A Day - Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon

    Extended holiday weekends are my favorite time to revisit my favorite movies. I celebrate Thanksgiving break with a marathon of James Bond films, and always rewatch the best Christmas films ever, Die Hard and Home Alone , during the winter holidays.
