The Evolution Of – Assassin’s Creed

Seven years. In video game terms, that’s a lifespan that is equivalent to a sneaky fart in an elevator. And yet in such a short amount of time, Ubisoft has managed to create one of the biggest franchises on the planet. Games, books, comics, action figures and more have been born out of Assassin’s Creed. And over the years, it has evolved into something magnificent.

This new trailer for Halo:The Master Chief Collection is in terminal condition

Way back in the early 2000s, Bungie created something special with Halo. Originally meant for Apple computers,  Bungie instead chose to flip off that egomaniac Steve Jobs and rather iPort their game over to Microsoft and their newborn Xbox division. And the rest as they say, was history. Totally bitchin’ history that is! Here’s a new trailer to celebrate the legacy of Halo, which is arriving soon in a remastered tetralogy package.

DICE isn’t sure why Battlefield: Bad Company is so popular

Battlefield 5? Yawn, give me a sequel to Battlefield Bad Company 2 instead! This year’s big announcement from EA was for Battlefield: Hardline, a game that so far only Gavin and myself are actually keen on playing. But we’re both in agreement that a new Bad Company game is needed right now. And DICE is also aware of that fan demand. They just can’t figure out why though.

Lego Batman 3: Beyond Gotham announced

Is it possible to have too many Lego games, you ask? Hahahaha, you silly people with your legs before wickets and your being born in a hospital, of course you can never have enough Batman in your life. As the chief Batmanologist for Lazygamer, I recommend a daily regimen of at least an hour a day of playing a Batman game. And you might want to try out our new Lego Batman 3 game later this year.

Drakengard 3 review round-up

Who needs Kraut control today, huh? There’s more than one game hitting the market, ready to bust your wallet open. Fantasy RPG Drakenguard 3 is finally out, and the reviews have started flowing out. Here’s what the critics have to say.

Halo: Master Chief HD Collection to be revealed at E3

If there’s one thing that the previous generation of gaming was known for, it was milking the hell out of the games that came before it, stretching some classic gems into a 16:9 aspect ration and repackaging them as collections. This generation is no different, with a definitive edition of Tomb Raider ramping up the visuals. And the entire Halo collection might get the same treatment soon.

What’s in a name? The most popular Mass Effect names

We get a lot of freedom in games these days. But we kind of take it for granted now, especially in the name game. Most games these days that offer open worlds want you to give your avatar a unique handle, something that Mass Effect encourages. And according to Bioware, these were the most popular names in their previous game in that series.

Darksiders may ride again

I’ve got a lot of love for the two Darksiders games from Vigil games. Pinching the best parts of other games and wrapping them in a completely unique look based on designs from comic book legend Joe Madureira resulted in a fantastic hybrid of style and substance. Pity the franchise is dead. Or is it?

Diablo 3: Ultimate Evil Edition launches in August

You’ve been wondering just when Blizzard would release Diablo 3: Ultimate Evil Edition onto consoles. Well wonder no more, as it’ll be out on August 19 for the Xbox One, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4. It’s Diablo 3, and the Reaper of Souls together for the first time, and it feels oh so good. Prepare to go back to hell Nephalem scum.

Final Fantasy III is coming to Steam

What’s old is new again. Out of all the Final Fantasies, Final Fantasy III is most likely the one game that I’m least qualified to talk about, having never played it. Still, provided that I can ignore that dusty emulator folder on my PC, I’ll be getting a chance to do so when the game hits Steam later this year.

Xbox has some really good Games for Gold in May

May is a month wherein some big events occurred on our planet. World War 2 finally ended on May 8 back in 1945 with an Allied victory, May 25 is Towel Day for the fans of 42 and yours truly was born in this month once several catastrophic prophesies came to pass. And now, it’s also a good month for free games.

Diablo 3 patch 2.04 changes up the classes

I’ve just recently started playing Diablo 3, on console. And I’m freakin’ loving it. It’s a great game, and beautifully balanced and it has me excited for the console release of Reaper of Souls. PC gamers already have that experience. And they’re also getting a new patch to rebalance the game.

Diablo 3: Reaper of Souls has sold millions

I’m pretty late to the Diablo 3 party. I only just picked up the game for Xbox 360, but I have to admit, I’m having a blast playing as monk with fists of iron. As usual, I am way beyond fashionably late, as the expansion is out for PC. And it has sold plenty so far.

Diablo 3: Reaper of Souls Review – Don’t fear the reaper

Its finally here, the expansion to the stupidly addictive clickiness that Blizzard gave to us nearly two years ago!  I won't ignore the fact that some of you likely had your issues with the game, whether it be of the error 37 kind or just simply a hatred for something it did or didn't do to meet your expectations.  You may be wondering why in hell you should now consider paying the price of a full game for an expansion. The simple answer is this: Reaper of Souls takes what you hated about Diablo III, fixes them, then throws in a whole lot of extra content to keep you busy for many, many hours.
