REVIEWS Wayward Manor Review
Not even the power of Neil Gaiman and The Odd Gentlemen could save this game from a fate worse than death: a terrible score.

ONE PIECE Unlimited World Red Review
"Unlimited World Red"? More like "Sorta Limited Town and Extended Areas... Red. And Blue. And Some Yellow."

PREVIEWS Pillars of Eternity Preview
For Obsidian's crowdfunded love letter to Infinity Engine games like Icewind Dale and Baldur's Gate, I was impressed by its willingness to pull back the curtain and let me see the machinery behind it.

Yesterday, while cleaning up my media center, I found my copy of Ratchet & Clank: Into The Nexus, which I bought sometime before Christmas last year. I had been pretty excited about this game pre-release, what with it being the first "traditional", albeit shorter than usual,...

The New Assassin's Creed III Trailer Made Me Throw Up In My Mouth A Little

Posted on Friday, September 7 @ 15:52:59 Eastern by sara_gunn


Ubisoft has a new TV spot for Team America: World Police Assassin’s Creed III, complete with Americans kicking ass, Americans being oppressed, and George Washington. The only thing missing is the damn national anthem.
 
The trailer, which premiered during this week’s opening of the NFL season (I wish I was making that up), highlights the struggle of downtrodden groups, such as the colonists and Native Americans. I guess they’re gonna work together to overthrow the British. Which is cute, seeing as we totally gave American Indians all the same rights and privileges we gave ourselves once we kicked the Brits out. That previous sentence, b-t-dubs, is a great example of why we all need to agree on a universally-recognized sarcasm font.
 
My favorite line: “He comes from the Mohawk tribe, but he is destined to lead us to freedom.” Despite his savage, brown-skinned ways, we may be able to use him for our own benefit! Surely that is right and godly, as we are oppressed ourselves and therefore are incapable of treating other groups like crap!
 
Okay, I’m totally turning off the sarcasm now. This kind of AMERICA! F*CK YEAH! mentality really bothers me, though, and I’m a bit embarrassed that the gaming industry now finds it acceptable to use for marketing. Frankly, I expect better from us. Well, maybe not from Ubi.
 
Oh, and that song? Excuse me while I ram an ice pick into my ear.
