Tom Clancy’s The Division gets a new trailer, its actually pretty good

It’s been a few years since Ubisoft first unveiled The Division and its long road to release has left wondering if it was all now a case of too little too late. If the game’s latest trailer is any indication, Ubi still seem confident that they’ve got something special on their hands. Check it out after the jump.

Games Review: The Crew (PS4, 2014)

When I downloaded The Crew onto my PS4, I was only able to play through a dense prologue before the game informed me that it wasn’t finished installing yet. There was nothing to indicate that an install was still going on aside from this screen with a percentage marker, no slowly-filling bar in or out of the game. It then took two entire days for the install to complete before I was able to continue playing the game. This significant speed bump set the tone for my experience with The Crew and things didn’t really improve from there. Continue reading Games Review: The Crew (PS4, 2014)

Games Review: Trials Fusion (Xbox One, 2014)

A few years ago when I played Far Cry 3 (co-incidentally, another Ubisoft title), Vaas, the game’s villain posed me a question: “Did I ever tell you what the definition of insanity is? It’s doing the same thing over and over again and expecting shit to change.” That’s kind of what it feels like to play Trials Fusion. You fail and you rage and you swear that’s it, you’re done … but you keep going back. Over and over again. Continue reading Games Review: Trials Fusion (Xbox One, 2014)

Games Review: Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: China (PS4, 2015)

Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: China is a 2.5D stealth/action side-scroller downloadable title that introduces a new female assassin and a reshuffling of the familiar Assassin’s Creed sneaky-stabby gameplay mechanics and serves as the first chapter in a new Assassin’s Creed series. But is it worthy of the Assassin’s Creed mantle? Continue reading Games Review: Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: China (PS4, 2015)

Games Review: Assassin’s Creed Rogue (PC, 2015)

2014 was a pretty rough year to be a fan of Assassin’s Creed. Ubisoft’s attempt at bringing the series into the latest console generation was calamitous at best, but in all the tumult surround Assassin’s Creed Unity, it was easy to forget that it wasn’t the only AC title being released. Assassin’s Creed Rogue, previously only available on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, has finally come to PC and – in extremely good news for AC fans – it’s the game you were hoping to play last year. Continue reading Games Review: Assassin’s Creed Rogue (PC, 2015)

Games Review: Assassin’s Creed Unity (Xbox One, 2014)

I am what could be called an Assassin’s Creed apologist. I’ve defended the series against hyper-critical friends and co-workers, I even managed to find things to like about Assassin’s Creed III — and everyone hated that one. Where many have grown weary of the series since it became a yearly franchise, I’ve continued to look forward to each new installment. I love it’s entire conceit, it’s crazy plot and it’s willingness to experiment from game to game. I point all of this out so that you understand just how much I was looking forward to Assassin’s Creed Unity, and why I’m as disappointed with it as I am.
