Assassins Creed

  • 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...

  • Celebrating a Decade of Assassin’s Creed Part 1: 2007-2012

    For the past two console generations, Assassin’s Creed has been a premier title in AAA gaming. Ubisoft’s biggest franchise is made up of a barrage of different ideas that on paper you just wouldn’t think would work. Part modern day sci-fi conspiracy thriller, part historical epic and part high...
