  • CrunchArcade: Tom Clancy MMO is a go

    Ubisoft recently acquired the rights to author Tom Clancy’s name and they’re going forward with an MMO. It’s unclear how much Ubi was paying in royalties, but the acquisition is estimated at EUR 60 million. Ubisoft expects they’ll be saving themselves EUR 5 million a year with the rights. President of Ubisoft Yves Guillemot had this to say, “Having no fees… Read More

  • Video: Sneak peak of Ubisoft's Tom Clancy's EndWar

    http://www.gametrailers.com/remote_wrap.php?mid=32022 Who the hell are the Frag Dolls and why do they get to play Tom Clancy’s EndWar? I want to play EndWar damn it! What’s really neat about this RTS from Ubisoft is the voice command function. It may take some getting used to, but I’m sure most gamers will adjust quickly. I may not, though. I like to yell and scream. Again… Read More

  • Rumor: EA eyeing Ubisoft

    EA’s attempt at assimilating Take 2 was kiboshed, for now, and rumors are stirring that Ubisoft is next on the list. If one were to extrapolate on the recently (2/22) minted EAUbisoft.com domain purchase, but EA also registered EATake2.com on the same day. Both were registered through proxy. However, with a string of hot sellers like Assassin’s Creed and its Tom Clancy titles… Read More

  • Fresno pwns the country


    Looks exciting doesn’t it? For what? You might ask. And that’s a very good question considering Fresno is in BFE and doesn’t seem to have anything going for it, but they can now tout themselves as winners of Ubisoft’s “Great American Word Challenge.” As winners of this prestigious competition that began last November a local family literacy center will… Read More

  • Assassin's Creed Nintendo DS gameplay demo

    http://www.gametrailers.com/remote_wrap.php?mid=30335 I like AC as much as the next guy, but I’m not so sure I’d want to play it on my DS. It looks better than I expected, but it’s not really doing it for me. Yay or nay? Read More

  • Rainbow Six Vegas PS3 Casemod: Tactical Pandora Diorama Theory


    If you’re really into miniatures, and want your PS3 to double as a board for your figure-based strategy game (I know Warhammer 40,000: Vegas is coming out soon), this sort of thing is plainly for you. A lot of work has gone into this completely impractical conversion, which was made for an Ubisoft promotion. I’m more a fan of modding your case into a something, well, awesome… Read More

  • Rainbow Six Vegas 2 dated

    For the rabid Tom Clancy fans in the audience here’s some good news. Ubisoft has finally dated the latest TC title, Rainbow Six Vegas 2, and it’s due out March 21. Hooray! Read More

  • Prince of Persia making a comeback

    Looks like POP is looking to make a comeback in the Spring. No other details have been disclosed. I really need to spend the next five minutes looking for an emulator because I really want to play the original now. Prince of Persia to return [Euro Gamer] Read More

  • Ubisoft announces Far Cry 2 for Xbox 360, PS3


    Even though it’s being delayed indefinitely until Spring, Ubisoft has gone ahead and announced that FC2 will be coming soon for the Xbox 360 and PS3 platforms. The FPS is set in Africa and will have all the next-gen HD tech backing up the custom-made video game engine. Yeah, yeah. Whatever. Heh. Let’s see it soon! Read More

  • Ubisoft delays three heavy hitters till Spring


    Some of you may be weeping uncontrollably after I tell you that Far Cry 2, Tom Clancy’s End War and Brothers In Arms: Hell’s Highway is being delayed until sometime in Q2 and I’m sorry for that. Not so sure what’s causing the delay, but those three titles are Ubisoft’s big hitters for 2008. Maybe they’re riding on Assassin’s Creed’s… Read More

  • The Wii, DS pwn everyone and their mother

    Yes, we all know the Wii is still an elusive bugger and the DS is hot stuff (it’s outselling the PSP), but the novelty of both have warn off. I don’t touch the Wii anymore, but I am learning Spanish via My Spanish Coach at the moment on my DS. The NYT has a fancy, yet bloated, article on the success of both devices for Nintendo and the only thing worth noting from the whole thing… Read More

  • Say it ain't so, Ubisoft

    You can’t seriously be working on a sequel to one of the worst Wii games ever, right? I assumed the previous rumors were, that, just rumors. You better have better controls and a better UI among other things for Red Steel, Ubi. I think I’m about to barf, but it could just be the Absinthe I took a shot of. Ubisoft Reveals Red Steel 2 Coming in 2008 [Shack News] Read More

  • Rainbow Six Vegas 2 details emerge

    http://www.gametrailers.com/remote_wrap.php?mid=29095 I’m not the biggest fan of Tom Clancy’s games (I prefer Ubi’s other Tom Clancy military title, G.R.A.W.), but it obviously has a big following so this is for you, fanboys. A handful of details have surfaced about Rainbow Six Vegas 2 and nothing really piques my interest. Apparently, there will be 13 new multiplayer maps… Read More

  • CG Holiday 2007 Recommendation: My Word Coach for the DS, Wii

    in my holiday gift guide, but the more I play it the more I realize what an exceptional game it is. When you first play you are put through an evaluation process to determine your Expression Potential, which is a score that represents your ability to use and command the English language. You get to pick one of four coaches who focus on different aspects of the language and help you to… Read More

  • Assassin's Creed selling like hotcakes

    Ubisoft makes killer games and there’s no doubt about that so is it any wonder that Assassin’s Creed is boosting the French publisher’s sales outlook for 2007-08? It’s sold more than 2.5 million copies in under four weeks and Ubi expects to sell at least five million, which is two more than they expected. Really, Ubi? You didn’t think it was going to sell that well? Read More

  • CG Holiday 2007 Recommendation: Assassin's Creed

    Just to follow up on my Xbox 360 Elite and HD DVD player recommendation from yesterday, I wanted to recommend Assassin’s Creed for both the Xbox 360 and PS3. But it seems as though the PS3 crowd are having some troubles with Altair freezing in mid-jump along with a handful of other glitches. This, however, should not detract from the game itself, which is fantastic. The AI in AC is… Read More

  • Assassin's Creed video review

    http://www.gametrailers.com/remote_wrap.php?mid=27754 GameTrailers.com has a good video review of Ubisoft’s Assassin’s Creed. I don’t know about you, but I’m excited about this game. GT’s basic view is that the game is gorgeous and innovative, albeit a bit repetitive and with a less-than-stellar enemy AI. "Assassin’s Creed breaks new ground but fails… Read More
