  • Hands On Can Assassin's Creed Origins Revive Ubisoft's Stealth Series?

    By 'eck

    Someone at Ubisoft’s been busy playing The Witcher III: Wild Hunt. Though the anticipated Assassin’s Creed Origins whisks you away to the wide open expanses of Egypt, you can sense the White Wolf watching over this surprisingly RPG leaning iteration of the French publisher’s stealth series. Our demo is a perfect example of that:...

    Rockstar teases more info

    Rockstar is teasing something Red Dead Redemption 2 related over on Twitter, and as you'd expect, the gaming sphere has gone nuts. It's been pretty quiet on the Western front since the developer announced that the game's release would be delayed back in May. There were rumours that it would reappear around E3 2017, but...

    Whodunnit?

    The next game from Until Dawn developer Supermassive Games is a lot like Until Dawn at first blush: it has unnervingly lifelike virtual characters, branching plot paths, and more serial killers than an entire season of Midsummer Murders. The twist is that Hidden Agenda’s being sold on the strength of being a local multiplayer party game...

  • TGS 2017 Yakuza: Kiwami 2 Nabs Another Questionable Side Activity

    Say cheese

    The Yakuza series is no stranger to, er, somewhat questionable side activities. Yakuza 0, for example, introduced a minigame in which you watch scantily clad women wrestle in an underground area and place bets on who you think will come out on top. We're not sure whether stuff like this goes down well with everyone, but the bottom line is...

    A bad crop

    When we received the code for Maize, a comedic first-person adventure game about sentient corn, we were obviously intrigued. How could we not be? The key art features a stalk of corn listening to a boom box, and in an industry that can at times feel bereft of fresh ideas, this left-field offering from Finish Line Games excited us. Not...
