    Now you can play that new Prince of Persia on your Mac (plus unrelated censorship anecdote)

    Is it still called “PC gaming” when it's done on a Mac? I'd ask Ubisoft, which just announced that Prince of Persia and that Shaun White snowboarding game will be available on the Mac in March, but it seems my Internet connection is being censored by The Man right now. Censorship makes the Internet Jesus cry. Read More

    Ubisoft details 2009 fiscal year game line-up

    I won't bore you with financial details because we've been doing enough of that in the last couple days so I'll get straight to the point. Ubisoft will be launching seven franchise titles this year (or there fiscal year which runs from April of '09 to March '10), three new brands and four movie license-based games across all platforms. Unfortunately, I Am Alive won't be making it out this 'year'… Read More

    Contest: Win a copy of Target Limited Edition Shaun White Snowboarding for the Xbox 360

    Sorry about the delay on this contest, folks, but it’s been busy around the CG office with John gallivanting around Europe spreading his seed all over Marie Antoinette’s watch and all. So, without further ado let’s start this contest. If you haven’t watched our video interview with Shaun White then you’re basically out of the running. Just kidding, but you have to… Read More

    Ubisoft's Tom Clancy EndWar out today

    It’s been eight years since Ubisoft’s Tom Clancy franchise has launched a new title and today the World War III RTS EndWar is available for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. The neat thing about this game is that you can play by just barking out orders into your headset. It’s kind of the ultimate lazy gamer’s game. Hit the jump to watch the FragDolls in case you’ve… Read More

  • To appeal to hard-of-hearing, Ubisoft will add subtitles to its games

    To appeal to hard-of-hearing, Ubisoft will add subtitles to its games

    Well then, kudos to Ubisoft. The French publisher will now add subtitles to all of its internally developed in order to make them more accessible to the hearing impaired. Games like Far Cry 2 and Prince of Persia will be the first to benefit from Ubisoft’s newfound magnanimity. And that’s all she wrote. Read More

  • Video: Want to know what the new Prince of Persia looks like?

    Of course you do! I also saw this game the other week and it’s pretty cool how you and the hottie tag-team to battle enemies. Oh, and you never die because said hottie can save you. Get excited, folks, this isn’t your daddy’s Mechner PoP. Read More

  • Video: Latest Far Cry 2 trailer, map editor detailed

    Here’s the latest Far Cry 2 trailer to hit the Web from Ubisoft. I demoed this game last week and I can say it’s worth all the hype. The Map Creator alone makes this game worth it. Okay, maybe not just that, but it’s a nice bonus. It allows you to create any type of terrain (jungles, deserts, etc.) you want and jump into it immediately to see if it was worth the 15 minutes you… Read More

    Ubisoft sues North Carolina disc replicator

    Ubisoft is not amused about the 700,000-some copies of Assassin’s Creed that spread like wildfire around the web six weeks before the game was available at retail stores. Ubisoft has tracked the initial leak back to Optical Experts Manufacturing, the company in charge of producing copies of the game for sale. It was found that an employee of the company had taken the game home and leaked it… Read More

  • EA, Ubisoft: E3 was a waste of everyone's time this year

    EA, Ubisoft: E3 was a waste of everyone's time this year

    Should they make a comeback? How big of a waste of time was E3 this year? Watching the coverage on G4, you’d think something important was happening. Maybe FPS With Different Shades of Brown 87 still interests y’all, but I’d say the show was rather bland. Even Electronic Arts, everyone’s favorite giant of a publisher, agrees that the show has lost its luster, saying that… Read More
