So while we haven’t seen a trailer or press release, a leaked image has revealed what could be the next protagonist in the series. An image of the offices in Ubisoft Montreal, as seen above, shows a large wall poster of an unfamiliar assassin. Because this character has never been seen in any of the other Assassin’s Creed properties, we are [...]
A listing for a Watch_Dogs Beta has been discovered on the Xbox One marketplace. Originally discovered by a user on Reddit, the listing has already been taken down causing speculation as to it’s existence. Though most believe it will be a test for the upcoming game’s multiplayer, it is most likely an internal test by Ubisoft to ensure that the recently confirmed is working as it should. Watch_Dogs will launch on May 27th for PS4, PS3, Xbox One, Xbox 360, and PC.
Gone Home, one of the highest reviewed games of 2013, is coming to consoles later this year.

Microsoft has built an unfortunate reputation for selling overpriced accessories to their consoles so the announcement of a Xbox One stereo headset for $79.99 came as a surprise. Microsoft had either produced a sub-par headset and set it at a marked up price-point or they had finally gave in and given their customers a product worth bragging about. I’m proud to say that the latter is true. Sound The most important feature of any headset, the audio from the stereo [...]
When the Xbox One development team received their own exclusive white consoles, the internet instantly threw a jealous fit. Now there is another reason to be jealous: Members of the Titanfall development team from Respawn Entertainment shared photos on Twitter of a Titanfall-themed Xbox One console exclusively made for them: Regardless of how pretty or ugly the console looks, the interesting part of this story is that the image of that same console was leaked by a Microsoft insider on NeoGaf a few months [...]
In what seems to be a coming out party for Watch_Dogs, Ubisoft continues to reveal information regarding their highly anticipated stealth/hacking, action-adventure, open world game. Ubisoft Creative Director Jonathan Morin responded to a fan on Twitter regarding the possibility of a multiplayer component to the game: This news follows yesterday’s announcement of a late May launch, delayed from the intended launch alongside next-gen consoles. Ubisoft explained the reason for the delay was that even though the content of the game was complete, [...]
Naughty Dog has released a statement regarding Amy Henning’s departure from Co-Presidents Evan Wells and Christophe Balestra: Earlier this week we had to confirm the regrettable news that Amy Hennig has left Naughty Dog. She will be missed and, as we stated before, we appreciate the significant contributions that she has made to Naughty Dog and the industry in general. We wish her the best. However, we feel it necessary to clear up a very important point that was unprofessionally [...]
Traveller’s Tales may have just released my favorite trailer of the year, even after I spent all of yesterday fan-girling about the trailer for Batman: Arkham Knight. A new trailer for Lego The Hobbit forgoes the epic tone we’ve tiredly come to expect from video game trailers, and instead paints the game as a “Tolkeinfied” buddy heist. It only goes to show how creative and funny Traveller’s Tales can be after their astonishing 21 different Lego games. Lego The Hobbit will release on [...]
A new digital version of Guacamelee is coming to PS4, Xbox One, Xbox 360, and Wii U from developer DrinkBox. Similar to the Gold Edition on PC, the Super Turbo Championship Edition will bundle all of the previous DLC and will add new bosses/levels and new character abilities. The initial report comes from IGN but has since been removed most likely because DrinkBox was not ready to announce just yet. Guacamelee: Super Turbo Championship Edition is expected to release Spring 2014.
New details on Batman: Arkham Knight have been released in the cover story of this month’s issue of Game Informer. It’s a lot of information so let’s do it by bullet points: Alleged release date: While no release date was officially announced, several retailers have listed the game to release on October 14th, 2014. This date doesn’t seem to be a placeholder because the 14th falls on a Tuesday (when most games release) and because the past two Arkham games [...]
