We’re still early into the year, and have not yet had to resort to eating the pizza delivery man in order to remain well-fed. Which means that you might still have a few bucks lying around for some games! Here’s a bunch of discounts, for all you Xbox owners out there.
Are you dreaming of an Assassin’s Creed sequel that has you Peter Parkouring your way across Feudal Japan and locking samurai blades with noble lords? Well keep dreaming.
Steam Sales are always after your money. Awesome games at bargain prices, who can say no? Now, these prices aren't quiet comparable to the ones you saw in December, but some of them are pretty good.
Financial years always confuse me, just like school years do in the northern hemisphere. We already have a perfectly serviceable calendar from January - December, why do we have to have years that run from April 2014 to March 2015? Oh well, whatever "year" you want to call it, Ubisoft has said they're bringing out five major titles in that time period.
Finally, we made it to the top 20 - and these are some fantastic games. I don't think anyone can argue with us about them, although you all probably will anyway. But we don't mind - they still made us happy during this gaming generation. As usual, the disclaimer is in place; this list isn't based on scores, sales or metrics, just on our discussions, bickering and threats against each others' loved ones.
IGN America has been chatting to Ubisoft about delays and their North American spokesperson, Laurent Detoc, had some interesting things to say about how Ubisoft approach development and delays.
Tis the season to be jolly, falalalalalala! Christmas is right around the corner, and chances are, you haven’t bought a gift yet for the gamer in your life. Well thanks to the cunning sea-dogs at Ubisoft and Megarom, we might have that dilemma sorted out for you.
Ubisoft hasn’t exactly had the best track record when it comes to PC games. Blame the Uplay system or some of that terrible DRM which they mercifully scrapped this year, but console has generally had a better audience response for their games. And that’s something that Ubisoft wants to change, staring with Assassin’s Creed 4.
As far as single-player games go, Assassin’s Creed is one of those titles that have a very strong presence in that domain. Sure, it has multiplayer, but have you ever heard someone explain that they were buying one of those games solely for that? In future games however, the single and multiplayer worlds could merge together.
So far, Assassin's Creed has taken us around the globe as various characters - Altair, Ezio and Connor. Before we knew the latest installment would include pirates, there was much speculation about when and where we'd be killing people. Now, Ubisoft has leaked that they did actually listen to everyone.
In a day that will live in infamy for all those on lazygamer, last week Victor (aka Vicky, aka VEEEEKTAAAWR) wrote his top ten list of games. It included all three Fables, and has (rightfully) earned him a lot of ridicule. It also led to the rest of the crew being asked for their top ten - an almost impossible task. But I tried.
Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag is out tomorrow – and it’s a must if you’re longing for a pirate adventure. If you’ve never played an Assassin’s creed game, you might be missing out on the grand overarching narrative – which is why we’ve got two copies of the Assassin’s Creed Anthology from Ubisoft up for grabs. These are the lucky winners:
If you don’t know who Tony Swatton is, then you’ve obviously got a problem with sharp and shiny objects. Once again, the master Blacksmith is tackling another custom video game project. And it’s a sneaky stab at the tools of the trade used in Assassin’s Creed.
Would you look at that! Another game is getting a season pass. Because reasons. Here’s what extras your $20 will nab you at the end of this month in Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag.
