  • A Farewell to Assassin’s Creed Odyssey

    It’s usually around this time of year that I’d be picking up the controller to play a new Assassin’s Creed game but, alas, that’s not this case this year. The franchise is taking a well-deserved and aptly-timed break before the next instalment – rumoured to be focused on Vikings...
  • My Love-Hate Relationship with Assassin’s Creed Odyssey’s Atlantis DLC

    Greece is beautiful. Oh, in real life sure, but I’m talking about the Peloponnesian War-era Greece that’s open to explore in Assassin’s Creed Odyssey. I’ve spent an almost embarrassing number of hours in the game, most of which are spent in the most picturesque digital landscapes imaginable. But for...
  • Is There Really a Ubisoft Shared Universe?

    Abstergo logos in Far Cry. Sam Fisher in Ghost Recon: Wildlands. The Assassin’s Brotherhood symbol in Rainbow Six Siege. Raving Rabbids in Watch Dogs. Ubisoft loves to have their games reference and connect to one another. At the moment these connections are seemingly there for two reasons: a cheeky...
  • Should Ubisoft Remove the Modern-Day Storyline From Assassin’s Creed?

    Spoilers for Assassin’s Creed Odyssey incoming. I will also be referring to the protagonist of the game as Kassandra throughout the article because I played as her rather than Alexios. Well it took a while but I’ve finally completed Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, at least until more DLC comes out...
  • Ranking the Assassin’s Creed Games

    After putting over 100 hours into Assassin’s Creed Origins and its DLC over the past year, I was hoping for some time off. There’re loads of games out there that I haven’t played and annualisation ultimately damaged the Assassin’s Creed brand so I wished that the next game wouldn’t...
  • Without Assassins or the Creed, is Odyssey a true Assassin’s Creed game?

    This past week, at E3 2018, Assassin’s Creed Odyssey was revealed. Well, I say “revealed” but in fact, just like every Assassin’s Creed in years, pretty much every detail had been previously leaked. We knew it was to take place in Greece, re-introduce naval combat, have dialogue options, a...
  • Ubisoft E3 2018 – Just The Trailers!

    Love E3 but can’t be doing with the awkward and cringe-worthy dialogue, WE GOT YOU! Check out all the big trailers without the other guff:  ...
  • Watch The Ubisoft E3 2018 HERE!

  • Why There Should Be A Batman: Gotham By Gaslight Video Game

    Considered to be the first ‘Elseworlds’ story of the DC Universe, Gotham by Gaslight was a 1989 single-issue comic, written Brian Augustyn, detailing an alternate origin for Batman. An origin set one hundred years prior in a Victorian-era Gotham City where the caped crusader is forced to go up...
