Oculus VR Preview – Eagle Flight

Oculus VR Preview – Eagle Flight

If there's anything I've learned about virtual reality, it's that you have to go into it with an open mind. Sometimes you'll see a game, and think that there's no way that it will be anything more than slightly amusing. That's how I felt about Eagle Flight, until I strapped in and started playing it.

Assassin’s Creed movie ticket preorder includes a crossbow for $1200

Assassin’s Creed movie ticket preorder includes a crossbow for $1200

You wouldn't bat an eye at the announcement of a pre-order campaign for a big upcoming video game — one where an increased price and down payment includes anything from a figurine to in-game items like weapons or costumes — so developer Ubisoft is looking to apply the same strategy to the theatrical movie release of Assassin's Creed. For a whopping $1,200 you can pre-order your ticket to the movie, which isn't expected until December, and score a replica crossbow.

Must-Have PC Games of 2016

While I tend to keep up with the latest console releases, I'm a PC gamer at heart. I like having a good computer with a nice screen that's going to play games with the graphics turned up as high as I can get them. I also like how easy it is to find games on the cheap, thanks to Steam sales, Humble Bundle specials, and countless others.

Far Cry 4’s map was reused in Primal, and Ubisoft should have embraced it

Far Cry 4’s map was reused in Primal, and Ubisoft should have embraced it

Back in 2013, Ubisoft made an interesting move with the Far Cry series. Far Cry 3 did incredibly well, and the team decided that they'd have some fun and make a stand-alone expansion for the game that took a completely different turn that we were used to. The result was a retro-futuristic game starring a cyborg named Rex "Power" Colt named Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon.

Uncharted 4 trailer caught using Assassin’s Creed artwork, dev apologizes

Yesterday saw Sony and game developer Naughty Dog drop an impressive new story trailer for the upcoming Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End. However, some eagle-eyed viewers noticed a piece of in-game artwork in the video that didn't belong. As in, it was artwork from a completely different game, by a different company, to be specific. A scene in the trailer showed a framed painting on the wall, which turned out to be a piece of concept art from Ubisoft's Assassin’s Creed: Black Flag.

No new Assassin’s Creed in 2016, Destiny 2 coming 2017

No new Assassin’s Creed in 2016, Destiny 2 coming 2017

Game franchises can sometimes live on and on for years. Some even for decades. But being old and venerable doesn't always mean you always get it right. Sometimes, you can lose your way and need to find your way back. That might be the kind of soul-searching that Ubisoft will be undertaking, or should undertake, this year when it decided not to launch a new Assassin's Creed title this year. In the meantime, Bungie will be forging ahead with Destiny 2, though it seems that it is the game's destiny not to launch this year either.

When a game gets a closed beta just a month before it's ready to be released, people often wonder just how much can be changed in that time. Such is the case with Tom Clancy's The Division. The game had a weekend-long closed beta at the end of last month. There's an open beta coming, and along with it, a surprising number of changes.
