Will Assassin’s Creed Fatigue Happen?

assassins-creed-3-image3_596x388 Assassin's Creed is undoubtedly one of the larger franchises in current video games, and can boast being one of the best AND one of the worst franchises to date. Most people were on board for Assassin's Creed when it first launched, and many praised it for the unique gameplay. Collecting flags - at least at that point - was a minor annoyance at best. Assassin's Creed was heralded by many as the next big thing.

Chariot_120x129 The Developers of the popular, albeit frustrating game Chariot have taken things to a whole new, and frankly unnecessary, level. If you have lots of money to spend and too much time on your hands, you can now set up your gaming room for a heightened Chariot playing experience.

 

Chip’s Challenge a Nice Release on Steam

chips2header_690x388 Many months back we reviewed a game called Chuck's Challenge, which was created and designed by the Chip's Challenge creator Chuck Sommerville. Playing Chuck's Challenge was great fun, and it brought back memories of playing Chip's Challenge in the early 90s. The problem, however, was that it was not Chip's Challenge.

 
 

Hello Games Shows a Glimpse of the No Man’s Sky Universe at E3 2015

DerekBrown_NoMansSky_Poster-13_120x160 I think many of you have been waiting for this day for a long time - the 2015 edition of the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) - to see what new additions to the gaming world we can spot. One of the games I was expecting the most was No Man's Sky - a virtually infinite universe filled with billions of worlds waiting to be explored.

 

Can consumers continue to pay the high price?

Gamestop The rising price of AAA video games at Canadian retail locations is making me wonder something: how long can consumers continue to pay the high price of games? Best Buy Canada and Amazon Canada have been offering a bunch of pre-order incentives for games announced at E3 2015. With a 5-10$ discount, these retailers are charging 64.99 - 69.99; that means the regular price on these titles is 74.99 - 79.99. With a 13% sales tax in Ontario, that means a brand new AAA tilte at full cost could set ...

 

Gwent from Witcher 3 Now Available Online

mCwAjol_200x200 If you have played the Witcher 3 you no doubt have spent numerous hours battling various NPC's in games of Gwent. You've probably also said, "Man, I wish I could play against my friends on PSN or Xbox Live." While that feature could be coming in the future - at least we hope so - you can now play Gwent OUTSIDE of the Wticher 3.

The first episode will be availabe for everything except the Microsoft consoles on July 28th (a day later, July 29 on Xbox One and 360).

 

Elder Scrolls Online Xbox One Early Impressions

elder scrolls 1 I generally hate MMO's. Let me rephrase that: I loathe MMO's. I just never saw the fun in typing to chat, spending half my game play time swapping weapons and potions, or having to find a guild to truly enjoy the game. I want to play an MMO on my own time, which sometimes is only a few hours a week. Most MMO's don't give that kind of freedom. ESO definitely does.

 

Ubisoft Comes out Swinging with Big Titles, Big DLC

ubi-1_690x349 Ubisoft's press conference lacked any real surprises until near the end, but that isn't necessarily a bad thing. Unfortunately for them, they had a tough Microsoft press conference to live up to. I think they did fairly well, despite the lack of 'exciting' announcements.

 
 

Holiday 2016 a long time to wait for a new Mass Effect

ea-e3-conference-wide-live-1021x555 Mass Effect 4 was inevitable, but today Electronic Arts announced further details about the latest game in the franchise. The most unfortunate detail? The game isn't coming until Holiday 2016. Not 2015, 2016. That is nearly 18 months away.
