Compromise has been the watchword of this generation – and thankfully that’s about to change

There was some chatter earlier this year that the jump this new generation will give us will be the biggest since the leap between 2D and 3D. Don’t just dismiss that as marketing talk, because it’s very true. Since the strongest 2d games were released for the SNES, we’ve seen a very slow transition to 3D. PS1 and PS2 were about finding the roots that would lead us to gaming as we know it today. PS3 was about building those…

Assassin’s Creed Valhalla Review-in-Progress

Assassin's Creed has been one of my favourite franchises of all time, and the changes they have made in the last few entries are wonderful in almost every way. While there were a few things in Assassin's Creed Origins and Assassin's Creed Odyssey that I didn't enjoy, some of those issues have been rectified in what I like to call the "New Era" of Assassin's Creed titles. From start to finish, Assassin's Creed Valhalla is a fantastic experience, punctuated by dozens of highs, and very few lows. Let's dive in!

Although It Doesn’t Feel Like Next Gen, Xbox is Consumer Friendly. And That Counts

I've been having discussions on Twitter with a bunch of folks around which next generation console feels more next generation, and from an outside perspective without having touched either yet (hopefully soon readers, hopefully soon! Many have been asking!), I've been fairly consistent in saying that PlayStation 5 feels much more next generation than Xbox Series X or Xbox Series S. And that's not a knock on Xbox. In fact, when you dive deeper into my reasoning, it's ultimately the system we would recommend this holiday!

Today is yet another big day in a long history of big days for Ubisoft, a worldwide video game development company with multiple studios scattered around Canada. One of the largest - Ubisoft Toronto - was the team behind today's launch, Watch Dogs: Legion. Yesterday, Ubisoft Toronto hosted an industry event via YouTube, giving media and fans the opportunity to ask questions of the Toronto team, about how Watch Dogs: Legion was created.

Does Watch Dogs: Legion miss having a single Protagonist?

I've been exploring the streets of London thanks to Ubisoft Canada, and while Kevin Austin has been focusing on our review of the title, I've been putting my energy into some supplementary articles. One of the biggest questions I had going into Watch Dogs: Legion, and one I think I've finally answered, is "does Watch Dogs: Legion miss having a singular protagonist?" Let's dive in.

With Two Massive Titles, Will Ubisoft Own Next Gen Launch Week?

Although Watch Dogs Legions is coming out at the end of October, it's close enough to the launch dates for Xbox Series X / Series S and PS5 to be considered a launch title - to be fair, it is a launch title officially, although not a 'new' launch title. Ubisoft loves to deliver great content for fans, but it's not often we get two mega titles so closely to each other. With Watch Dogs launching on October 29th, and Assassin's Creed Valhalla launching on November 10th, next generation launch week has Ubisoft written all over it.
