  • Forget the Villain, Far Cry 6 Needs a Compelling Protagonist

    While the early instalments can’t be ignored, it was Far Cry 3 which established the franchise as we know it today. The formula has remained largely unchanged ever since, and with the recent announcement of Far Cry 6, I felt the urge to revisit that important earlier sequel which...

    This week Aadil does a live on-air unpackaging for The Outer Wilds, a game he hasn’t played yet. We all chat LoZ Link’s Awakening and Breath of the Wild, converse about the state of Breakpoint and Ubisoft and chat around having a unified account for all platforms. Ben loves...
  • 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...

  • 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...
  • Why I’m excited for The Division 2

    I played a lot of Ubisoft’s The Division when it released in early 2016. It was one of my favourite games in a year where my tastes were catered to consistently with new releases. It was a competent third person cover shooter that did something well no other game...
