Here's What We Will Be Playing Day One For The PS4
by David 'Hades' Becker [ Wednesday, 21st of August 2013 - 06:55 PM ]
Just as Microsoft did yesterday, it looks like we have a pretty well rounded list of titles coming Day One-ish for the PS4 when it finally hits homes on November 15th. At first glance it looks like it is a bit longer, 10 more titles to be exact, but there are a few titles there that we've already had our hands on for a while now. Granted, it would be nice to have them all be original titles, but that is just the dream. By no means does this mean that I am not excited for the launch of the new console, but the numbers do seem a bit padded in regards to what will be available from launch. Read More...

SDCC 2013: South Park: The Stick Of Truth
by David 'Hades' Becker [ Friday, 26th of July 2013 - 11:08 PM ]
Didn't make it to San Diego Comic Con or the South Park: The Stick Of Truth panel? Well we got you covered. Or at least an amazing individual on the internet has you covered in the video aspect and I have you covered in the details as I was there taking notes for you. It should be no surprise that there isn't much in the way of new information since E3, but a few choice questions from fans and during the panel revealed a few tidbits. One of the best things I have heard in a while has to be that there are no plans to force DLC down our throats even though there were some major cuts from the 850+ page script of the game. Both Trey and Matt expressed a hatred for the term and that it was suggested when they had to start culling down the content. Read More...

The Massive Open World Of Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag
by David 'Hades' Becker [ Thursday, 25th of July 2013 - 08:40 PM ]
All of the details leading up to now surrounding Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag have been pretty spectacular. Some of it has just been written details or descriptions from all of us bloggers out there. Luckily that is no longer going to be the case as we have a full view of the open world and special features in ACIV. Just in case you want to still go into the game blind, I'll give you a bit of the run down in text form. The big thing is the "openness" of the game's world. Read More...

Splinter Cell Blacklist Goes Back To Its Roots
by Greg Tatterfield [ Friday, 12th of July 2013 - 04:59 PM ]
Many old school fans of Ubisoft's Splinter Cell series were disappointed with Conviction's heavier focus on action. Ubisoft realized this and added a new difficulty mode to Blacklist called Perfectionist Mode. Intended for Splinter Cell purists this mode removes your mark/execute ability and takes away your ability to see through walls with Sam's sonar goggles. This mode increases enemy difficulty in both stealth and combat as well as does not allow players to restock ammo at supply caches. This mode is really unique because it brings the series back to the original three games in the franchise where the only thing that you have to rely on is your night vision goggles and the shadows.

E3 2013 Impression: South Park: The Stick Of Truth
by David 'Hades' Becker [ Monday, 17th of June 2013 - 11:35 PM ]
With the fall of the mighty THQ and the purchasing of South Park: The Stick Of Truth by Ubisoft, all of us have been questioning what may or may not change in the final product. Especially since Ubisoft has it's hearts with the French and the Canadians and the minds behind South Park love to tear them apart. With questions like that and a huge interest in the game, I took a seat and watched what Obsidian had to show us at E3 after the great publisher swap. Granted, some of these might not be additions or substitutions due to the swap, but it was all shown during the demo I was graced with. Read More...

South Park: The Stick Of Truth Is Still Blasting Ass With The Best Of Them
by David 'Hades' Becker [ Thursday, 6th of June 2013 - 03:24 PM ]
I am so glad to see that South Park: The Stick Of Truth is still moving forward and striving given the loss of the original publisher and completely missing the launch date. While Ubisoft did purchase the game during the great THQ fire sale, I was a bit worried that this was going to fall into development Tartarus or be so altered it wouldn't be what we were led to expect. From the looks of the below screen shots and the bit of new information we have here it sounds like it is going to be just what fans of the show should expect. What is it that I say we should expect?

Assassin's Creed IV Black Flag - Game Play Trailer
by David 'Hades' Becker [ Thursday, 28th of March 2013 - 11:19 PM ]
Earlier this month we had the official announcement of Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag with not much to go on other than the time period of the story and the culture it is based around. During the reign of Blackbeard and pirates for those who are just now following along. No matter which you are, we now have a bit of game play from Black Flag and it looks like Ubisoft is trying to focus on the naval combat that debuted back in ACIII not so very long ago. It also looks like we will get to punch sharks in the gills during underwater scenes of the game, so there is also that. I'll be honest; I have yet to actually play AC III nor any of the 'spin off' titles that launched alongside so I have no clue how well or poorly this new mechanic actually handled in the games.

Assassin's Creed IV Accidentally Then Officially Announced
by David 'Hades' Becker [ Monday, 4th of March 2013 - 07:45 PM ]
It has been made official; Assassin's Creed IV is coming just about a year after AC3 has landed. It was originally rumored with the below trailer teasing it last week, but since the cat was let out of the bag it looks like Ubisoft isn't keeping it hidden any more. The video is now to be considered the official announcement of AC4 along with the release date of November 1st 2013. That adds another title to the PS4's launch lineup it would seem. Now for the interesting part, it looks like Ubisoft is breaking from the theme of traveling forward in history with each new AC title as we will be playing during the time of Blackbeard. Read More...

Story Time For Assassin's Creed III!
by David 'Hades' Becker [ Thursday, 4th of October 2012 - 07:07 PM ]
We are close to the launch of Assassin's Creed III and we know the general story and time period of the game. Wouldn't it be nice to get the spoiler on why and how Connor joined the assassins? When you look at the recruitment process in the past it would seem a bit odd that a Native American would join the ranks of the assassins. They have seemed to stick to a specific 'type' so far, but I digress. A bit of a heads up, the below trailer does touch on a few things in the intro story. Read More...

Assassin's Creed III's Combat Looks Beautifully Brutal
by David 'Hades' Becker [ Wednesday, 12th of September 2012 - 08:52 PM ]
We are getting closer to the launch of Assassin's Creed III. As we get closer it looks like Ubisoft is ramping up the game play details; this time with the actual combat of the game. Below you will see that we have episode two of the four part series that is showcasing all the game's insides. I was a bit doubtful when I first heard about the altered combat system for AC3, but seeing it fully in action here, dear gods. I am sure they took as much detail in past titles, but it definitely looks like they went all out here. Looks like this could be just as fluid as Arkham Asylum/City's combat when all is said and done and that is what I would classify as the best in the biz. Read More...

The Dangers Of Far Cry 3
by Greg Tatterfield [ Friday, 7th of September 2012 - 05:14 PM ]
Ubisoft has released a new trailer in their game play series for Far Cry 3. Part 2 of the survival guide sheds even more light on the games’ characters and story. Vass, which was mentioned in the first trailer, is revealed to be a drug addict and the leader of a group of black market pirates. Vaas also grows drugs and kidnaps hostages. It seems that Vaas is the person who may be holding Jason Brody’s friends. Other interesting features revealed in the trailer include making your own medicine out of wide array of ingredients found around the island, crafting and hunting to make money to buy new weapons and upgrades and gambling if earning money is not your thing.

Splinter Cell Blacklist PAX Prime Ghost Demo
by Greg Tatterfield [ Thursday, 6th of September 2012 - 05:21 PM ]
Over the weekend at PAX Prime Ubisoft showed off a new game play demo of Splinter Cell Blacklist. The demo was the same mission from E3 but this time it was a stealth play through. Ubisoft wanted to prove that you can still play through Blacklist using stealth like you played through every other game. Even with the ramped up action and lack of shadows the game still holds true to the series focus of stealth. The game finds the perfect balance between stealth and action. Read More...

See How You Will Survive In Far Cry 3
by Greg Tatterfield [ Thursday, 30th of August 2012 - 10:19 PM ]
Ubisoft has released a new trailer outlining the ways you may survive on the Rook Islands in Far Cry 3. The trailer shows some pretty crazy stuff such as exploring ancient temples and fighting off tigers and other wild animals. The trailer also sheds some light on the story and characters. It seems like there is a native tribe on the island lead by a women named Citra that will help main character Jason Brody survive the many dangers on the island. Her brother Vaas was also mentioned in the trailer but not much was revealed about him. Other things that were shown in the trailer include using zip lines, gliders and driving bikes and other vehicles. Read More...

A Few Inside Looks At Assassin's Creed III
by David 'Hades' Becker [ Tuesday, 28th of August 2012 - 11:11 PM ]
So about two weeks ago we were given a look at Assassin's Creed III's Naval Combat, but we didn't get many details on what is going on and what we will get to control. More or less it was a showing that just further confirmed what was announced at E3. If you venture a little bit lower here, you will see a similar video as before, only this time with a little bit of explanation. I do mean little though. If you have a few minutes take a listen to Alex Hutchinson, Creative Director, as he explains some of the weapons and events that were going on in the last video as well as what we have to look forward to.

Assassin's Creed III Hits The High Seas
by David 'Hades' Becker [ Wednesday, 15th of August 2012 - 07:13 PM ]
We've heard and seen a bit about Naval Warfare in Assassin's Creed III. We know it's going to be a feature in the game. With the below trailer from Gamescom we get, pretty much the exact same thing just with a bit more game play footage for the game. You'd think that there would be at least a few more details given here seeing as the game is so close to launch, but I guess not. But hey, who's going to look a bit more game play in a bad way? Hopefully there will be more details coming out here soon on this. Read More...
