Cyberpunk 2077: A retro-futuristic fantasy with huge potential – if you can ignore the Cyberjank

Practically speaking, it’s nearly impossible to offer a real review of Cyberpunk 2077, the long-awaited follow-up to The Witcher 3 from developer CD Projekt Red. In the first place, it’s so big that the few days I’ve had with it aren’t enough to realistically evaluate the game; second, it’s so buggy and janky now that it feels wrong to review it before it becomes the game I know it will be; and finally, everyone’s going to buy it anyway. The Witcher 3 is among the most universally lauded games o...

Ubisoft’s ‘Avatar’ Video Game Delayed So It Can Be Released Closer to James Cameron’s Sequels

Audiences won’t be saying “I see you” to Ubisoft’s new Avatar video game until sometime in 2022. Back in 2017, the video game giant announced that a brand new Avatar game was in the works courtesy of Massive Entertainment, the same company that made games like The Division, Far Cry 3, and South Park: The Fractured But Whole.

Hands-on: Sony’s DualSense PS5 controller could be a game changer

After spending a few hours with the PlayStation 5 and its completely redesigned DualSense controller, I can say with confidence that the new haptics and audio features certainly work — and could become integral to the gaming experience. But only if — and it’s a big if — developers truly embrace the tech. The DualSense controller replaces the extremely familiar and beloved design of the DualShock, which has remained largely the same shape since the first one shipped for the original PlayStation 2...

Netflix is developing a live action ‘Assassin’s Creed’ show

Netflix announced this morning that it’s partnering with Ubisoft to adapt the game publisher’s “Assassin’s Creed” franchise into a live action series. The franchise jumps around in history, telling the story of a secret society of assassins with “genetic memory” and their centuries-long battle the knights templar. It has sold 155 million games worldwide and was also turned into a nearly incomprehensible 2016 film starring Michael Fassbender and Marion Cotillard, which underperformed at the bo...

‘Assassin’s Creed’ Live-Action TV Series in the Works at Netflix, Animated Spin-Offs to Follow

Every few years, Hollywood will attempt yet again to adapt a video game for the screen, and you don’t even need every finger on one hand to count the number of times it has worked out well. One example of when it did work: Netflix’s The Witcher, the hit Henry Cavill-led fantasy adventure series based on both the popular video game franchise and books by Andrzej Sapkowski. And it seems like Netflix will be trying to replicate that Witcher magic with a TV series adaptation of Ubisoft’s Assassin’s...

News Post: Mobster Energy

Tycho: Monster Energy is a company that makes hummingbird food, and they are under the impression that this grants them primacy over a term whose etymological loam is Latin, causing them to spasmodically whip and gnash at completely reasonable uses of the word like Ubisoft's Gods and Monsters. Ubi did change the name, saying it was a creative decision, but it's hard to imagine an undisturbed creative process that results in the only name more pale and derivative than Gods And Monsters....

‘Scott Pilgrim vs the World: The Game’ is Finally Returning After Disappearing Six Years Ago

Back when Scott Pilgrim vs the World arrived in theaters in 2010, Ubisoft released a video game in conjunction with Edgar Wright‘s big screen adaptation of Bryan Lee O’Malley‘s graphic novel series. It was a classic side-scrolling, beat-’em up kind of game featuring a retro arcade style with character and level designs that echoed the art from the graphic novels. Fans loved it, but if you didn’t buy it before the end of 2014, then it was nearly impossible to get ahold of because the game disapp...
