A slower week, but plenty of good stuff

Ubisoft Apologises For Assassin's Creed Unity Bugs, Offers Compensation

It's no secret that Assassin's Creed Unity released with more than it's fair share of bugs. We confirmed as much in our review.

Review: Assassin's Creed Rogue (Xbox 360)

Assassin's Creed Rogue (Xbox 360)

A cold, hard, cash grab?

Given most of Ubisoft's marketing budget went on Assassin's Creed Unity this year, you'd be forgiven if you thought Assassin's Creed Rogue was a cash grab or an afterthought when it was announced in early August. Though the latter may feel slightly true given some of the games presentation decisions, Rogue is able to bring a...

News: Microsoft Confirms Games With Gold for December

Microsoft Confirms Games With Gold for December

It's tricky.

Microsoft has confirmed the upcoming Games With Gold offerings for December, and even though a retail title is in the mix on Xbox One, we're pretty sure some will not be happy with it, as it scotches rumours that users were due to receive Ryse or Dead Rising 3 as their game for December. Might be worth checking your sources if you're in...

More ways for you to make orange goo!

Review: Costume Quest 2 (Xbox One)

Costume Quest 2 (Xbox One)

Trick or treat?

Four years ago, Double Fine delighted fans with the original Costume Quest; a charming RPG starring twins Wren and Reynold and their friends on a Halloween-themed adventure in their local neighbourhood and beyond. Costume Quest 2 starts where the first game finished (if you ignore the first game's DLC) with little explanation of who...

Ubisoft Confirms The Crew Will Launch Before Reviews Do

Uh-oh.

As we said a little while ago, we will try to keep you informed with regards to reviews being delayed past the point of a game's launch due to embargos. Well, this one isn't quite about embargos, but it's close enough. Ubisoft beat us to it this time with regards to The Crew. The game launches on December 2nd, and review copies and codes...

Space Combat Comes To Warframe In Latest Update on Xbox One

Some people call me a space cowboy

The free-to-play third-person-shooter-with-a-ninja-flavour Warframe, which we reviewed very positively continues to impress. In past updates we've seen the addition of the ferocious alien pig-dog-like Kubrow as companions, an overhaul of the in-game menu system, and a continuation of the main storyline in which the...

Xbox 360 Digital Deals Leak Ahead of Black Friday Zero-Hour

Well, possibly...

It seems that although Microsoft has a countdown in place for Xbox 360 Black Friday digital deals, a massive list of Xbox 360 games have been trimmed in price ahead of the completion of the countdown. Without further ado, we'll just cut into the list. Batman: Arkham City - $4.99 (75% off) Battleblock Theater - $7.49 (50%...

Review: Adventure Time: The Secret of the Nameless Kingdom (Xbox 360)

Adventure Time: The Secret of the Nameless Kingdom (Xbox 360)

Totes alright... but not quite mathematical

To be blunt, last year’s Adventure Time: Explore the Dungeon Because I DON’T KNOW (hence forth referred to as ETDBIDK) was a poor game. With bland and repetitive dungeon crawling that desperately needed another dose of Adventure Time’s wacky flavor, as well as more overall purpose, it was a game that...

Review: WWE 2K15 (Xbox One)

WWE 2K15 (Xbox One)

Catch as catch can't.

Ever since THQ released WWF No Mercy and WWF Wrestlemania 2000 for Nintendo 64, fans of “sports entertainment” (or professional wrestling, to the uninitiated) have been crying out for a game that emulates the exciting, epic battles that take place inside the squared circle. Unfortunately, despite some half-decent efforts,...
