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.

Assassin’s Creed 5 Won’t Be Set in Feudal Japan

Posted on Tuesday, February 25 @ 06:30:00 Eastern by Alex_Osborn

The next entry in the Assassin's Creed franchise won't take place in feudal Japan, Ubisoft Toronto's Jade Raymond confirmed in an interview with Adweek.

Aside from the fact that it won't include Samurais, Raymond didn't offer any other hints regarding the game's setting aside from the fact that it features her favorite historical setting.

"When we’re building a franchise, we’re thinking of a whole universe and how we’re developing a meta-story that could live on for many years in games and TV," Raymond said of the series. “If the story has nowhere to go, then you end up with the video game equivalent of The Matrix 2 or something where it’s never going to be quite as genius."

Let's hope that Ubisoft can continue to come up with interesting story hooks and settings to keep the Assassin's Creed franchise from growing stale. Especially if the publisher plans on continuing to pump them out every year.
