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."

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,...

Ubisoft Says Assassin's Creed 3 Is Rich In Gameplay And Scale

Posted on Tuesday, March 27 @ 15:43:10 Eastern by Jonathan_Leack

It's no secret that Assassin's Creed 3 is taking the series in a bold new direction, but sometimes that isn't a good thing. However, Ubisoft is confident that the changes they're making are good for the award-winning series.

Alex Hutchinson, Senior Producer of Assassin's Creed 3, shared with CVG just how ambitious Ubisoft are with their current project. He stated:

"This [Assassin's Creed 3] is a huge investment, both in terms of gameplay and in terms of scale. It's 1.5 times the size of Rome in Brotherhood alone."

The new American Revolution setting doesn't just mean that the game will look different, and Hutchinson emphasized that in the interview. He shared a few of the new weapons which include the precision of the classic bow & arrow, the badassery of dual pistols, and the carnage of the tomahawk. 

As far as mass goes, being 1.5 times the size of Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood's Rome is nothing to take lightly. The city was home to 12 territories and by the time you were able to visit most of it travel times were ridiculous. The best part about Assassin's Creed 3's map being large is that it's set in America, and while Rome was exotic, being able to explore an area that is rarely seen in games is something to look forward to.

Assassin's Creed 3 is shaping up to be one of the biggest releases of late 2012. Stay tuned for more.
