  • Assassin's Creed III could hit shelves as early as April 2010

    Experiencing Assassin’s Creed blues now that you’ve finished the game, unlocked Altair’s armor, found all the glyphs, and have collected all 100 impossible-to-find feathers? Don’t fret friends.

  • Assassin's Creed II DLC priced and dated: Now you can finish the game

    Like with every game not called World of Warcraft, I played Assassin’s Creed II for a solid two or three hours, and it’s been collecting dust ever since then. This is relevant because, what, Ubisoft sold me (and all of you!) an incomplete game? Apparently! The game’s upcoming DLC, Sequence 12: Battle of Forli and Sequence 13: Bonfire of the Vanities, which go on sale in… Read More

  • Video: Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands: John Morrison jumps around, fights a sand monster

    Ubisoft hasn’t given up on the Prince of Persia series just yet (despite the fact that Assassin’s Creed is essentially Persia of Persia with a different pair of shoes). There’s the movie with that guy, and the just-announced Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands. It’s coming out in May of 2010 for all the usual suspects. Read More

  • Where were the games? Ubisofts sales down 52 percent for first half of FY2009-2010

    Looks like Ubisoft hasn’t had a great couple of months, either. The France-based publisher reported today a 52 percent decline in sales for the six months that ended on September 30 compared to the same period last year. (Fiscal years tend to begin in March.) A 52 percent drop translates to €166 million, or around $246 million. Read More

  • IntuiLab lets you blow things up with your hands.

    New games are always a cause for excitement. Ubisoft’s R.U.S.E. is a highly anticipated RTS set to release early 2010. But even cooler is the fact that you can play it on one of IntuiLab’s large multi-touch tables, and kill things just by touching them. Read More

  • Tokyo Game Show: First impressions and a look at Sony's and Ubisoft's booth

    I just came back from this year’s Tokyo Game Show and must say I am pretty disappointed with the show this year. There were hardly any highlights, Sony didn’t show their motion controller anywhere after the announcement during their keynote (picture of the device below/more info later) and staff members often didn’t let me shoot any pictures or videos (which I did anyway… Read More

    It won’t ship until November 11, but you can drool over the Master Assassin’s Edition until then. The Gamestop exclusive for Ubisoft’s upcoming sequel to AssCreed includes the following for $80: Read More

  • Splinter Cell: Conviction and Red Steel 2 both delayed until early next year

    Awww, that’s a shame. Red Steel 2, the impressive-looking Wii MotionPlus showcase piece from Ubisoft has been delayed until next year. Oh, and Splinter Cell: Conviction will be delayed as well. Read More

  • Where's Waldo? Ubisoft knows

    Launching in September for the Wii, DS, PC and Mac is a childhood favorite of mine, Waldo. Yes, the striped sweater wearing dope is making his triumphant return to the world in the form of a videogame. The question is: where the hell has he been for the last 21 years? I’d like to buy him a beer. Read More
