E3 2017: Hands On: Skull and Bones (Xbox One, 2017)

I don’t think I’m alone in saying that I still think of Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag‘s naval combat as being of the greatest things to ever come out of that series.

E3 2017: Hands On: Far Cry 5 (PS4, 2018)

As we’ve seen in the lead up to its announce trailer, Far Cry 5‘s premise is a timely one — a church of religious fundamentalists in an isolated town in middle America who wish to remake their nation in their bold new vision of conservativism. That’s where you and your arsenal of weapons come in. Continue reading E3 2017: Hands On: Far Cry 5 (PS4, 2018)
