Ubisoft's Going to Put More Modern Day Stuff in Future Assassin's Creed Games

Oh dear

We don't know about you, but we don't think that the lack of modern day content was Assassin's Creed Unity's biggest problem. Sure, it was almost non-existent and consisted of little more than a few daft cutscenes, but at least this meant that it didn't really get in the way of the historical story or its pacing. This particular author...

Trivial Pursuit Live! (PlayStation 4)

Genius in a can

If there's one problem with the physical version of Trivial Pursuit, it's that there aren't enough klaxons. Without loud noises and bright lights, how are you supposed to know how awesome and attractive you obviously are?

Nothing's a waste if you learn from it

Did you know that Assassin's Creed Unity didn't have a smooth launch?

Review: RISK (PlayStation 4)

RISK (PlayStation 4)

Risky business

With so many kitten videos on YouTube, taking over the world is something of a hassle these days. Vladimir Putin, with his head as smooth as a baby's first jazz recital, has found this out the hard way, attempting to start a world war while also maintaining his long-distance stalking of PewDiePie. Luckily, there's an easier way to...

Ubisoft Developer Reckons Watch Dogs Has "a Lot of Room for Improvement"

Howling at the moon

When Watch Dogs released last year, we thought that it was a pretty solid sandbox romp, but like many games that had come before it, there was enough to improve upon to make us think that an inevitable sequel would end up being the real highlight. Fortunately, creative director Jonathan Morin agrees with us. In an interview with...

Review: Tetris Ultimate (PlayStation 4)

Tetris Ultimate (PlayStation 4)

From Russia with indifference

The puzzle game used to be the staple of every platform’s portfolio. Be it Tetris, Columns, or Bust-a-Move, no console was complete without a score chasing outing of its own. In an age of Facebook and smartphones, though, those days are long gone, with Tetris the last bastion of a genre that’s largely been left...
