Assassin's Creed Rogue: The Kotaku Review

The biggest plot twist in Assassin’s Creed history is this: Assassin’s Creed Rogue, the least-hyped console game in the series, the one we had good reason to think would be bad, is…a very, very good game. It’s a must-play for any AC fan.


This Is Not Your Typical Open-World JRPG

I consider myself a fan of the open world video game genre. Give me a playground and I shall play. Then along comes D3 Publisher announcing a new open world game and I immediately became a mixture of intrigued, bemused, and perturbed all at the same time.


Shadow Of Mordor Is Way Less Fun On Old Consoles

When Shadow of Mordor first arrived in September, it was met with heaps of well-deserved praise. The last-gen versions of the game arrived today to considerably more muted fanfare.

Good Child Of Light Joke, Assassin's Creed Rogue

Last year’s Assassin’s Creed included references to Watch Dogs. This year’s Assassin’s Creed Rogue for PS3 and Xbox 360 has a joke about another Ubisoft game, the lovely Child of Light. Check it out, if you don’t mind a tiny spoiler about where part of Rogue takes place.


My First 20 Hours With Far Cry 4

Far Cry 4 is the kind of game that lets you make a lot of mistakes. The first night I started playing, I walked into an abandoned house and spotted a hornet’s nest. I shot it for no particular reason. A swarm of hornets flew out and killed me. The next time I saw a hornet’s nest, I did not shoot at it.


Japan's Slightly Depressing Video Game Sales Figures

Or, perhaps, truly depressing. It might depend on which console you own in Japan. That, or even if you own a home console. Full stop.


Short Clip Celebrates PlayStation's 20th Birthday

The 20th anniversary of the first PlayStation console’s Japanese release is fast approaching, and Sony’s here to commemorate it with — what else — a montage.
