Growing up you’re always told, “Don’t judge a book by its cover”. Don’t look at something and make an assumption about the overall quality by one small piece of information that you have. You’re going to miss out on a lot of great things if you do that. Sometimes that first piece of information you have isn’t enough to really make a solid judgment on … Continue reading Mario + Rabbids: The Game We All Judged, but Shouldn’t Have
The Assassin’s Creed Chronicles series doesn’t really get the credit that I think it deserves. The series, which started as announced DLC for Assassin’s Creed: Unity ended up spinning into its own trilogy of games. The three stories link together to tell a story first set up in Assassin’s Creed Revelations. At the end of Ezio’s life he has a box that he gives to Shao Jun, a member of the Chinese order of Assassin’s. That box ends up being the centerpiece of this three game series and sees it going through history from where it started in Renaissance Italy to where it ended up in revolutionary Russia around the time of the first World War.
The games themselves are side scrolling stealth platformers that I think capture the feel of the Assassin’s Creed series pretty well. They put a premium on stealth and you’ll find that if you try to brute force your way through them you’ll end up dead more times than not. However, if you play the games the way Assassin’s typically act you’ll find they handle themselves pretty well. Each of the three main characters feels just different enough from the others and they each have a part of the franchise that they seem to highlight more than the others.

It’s a day late, but still we’ll get you all the news about Nintendo Downloads we can. Another week with no high profile game releases on Nintendo platforms.

Hope restored. Jacob Frye’s cane in this new game does indeed contain a hidden blade. Ubisoft has shown off a new trailer for Assassin’s Creed: Syndicate that shows off about 4 minutes of the game. You see some of the new carriage mechanics, a train and a lot of assassining. Yea…I’ll be playing this one. Continue reading Assassin’s Creed: Syndicate Trailer
And that’s a good thing. Ubisoft’s official reason behind why their upcoming game won’t have any sort of second screen companion app is: “For Assassin’s Creed Syndicate, the team wanted to focus all their efforts on the core experience.” The better reason. It was dumb. It didn’t do anything to actually enhance the game or make it a better experience. All it did was frustrate … Continue reading Assassin’s Creed: Syndicate Will Not Have a Companion App
