REVIEWS Etrian Odyssey 2 Untold: The Faf Review
I dunno what a "Fifnir" knight is, but damn is he scary-lookin'. And his game... it's pretty damn good too.

Godzilla (PS4) Review
Godzilla fans enjoyed the recent film, but will they feel the same way about the new video game?

FEATURED VOXPOP oblivion437 Update: I was unfortunately not aware of Shamus Young's severe criticism of Fallout 3 available here to link in the original piece and I regret that.  It dovetails rather nicely with what I've written and it's much better executed than my piece.  I strongly recommend anyone...

Best Publisher 2011

Posted on Thursday, December 22 @ 10:29:48 Eastern by


Ubisoft


Notable Games of 2011:
  • Assassin's Creed: Revelations
  • Rayman: Origins
  • Just Dance 3
  • Outland
  • From Dust
  • Might and Magic: Clash of Heroes

How do you measure the strength of a publisher in this industry? Some rely on a single title to drive their entire business. Many consistently slash employees from their payroll after projects have finished. I would argue that the best publisher is the company with the best portfolio of games throughout the year.

Ubisoft certainly fits the bill. Downloadable titles likes From Dust and Outland surprised us earlier this year while Just Dance 3 continued its dominance in the casual market. Fan favorites like MIght & Magic continued while blockbusters like Assassin's Creed: Revelations maintained quality and entertainment value. Even a risky title like Rayman Origins surprised us all with its charm, dedication to old-school design, and odd release date. Look no further for the best publisher in 2011.

Runners Up: 
  • THQ
  • Square Enix
  • Bethesda
  • Electronic Arts
