Valiant Hearts' Trailer In Minecraft Is Both Silly And Poignant

We’ve got the first trailer for Valiant Hearts, Ubisoft’s fantastic game about World War I, with its own distinct visual style and powerful narration and music. Now, what if we take this visual style, and substitute it for Minecraft? Surprisingly, it works. Kinda.


Watch Dogs Players United In Their Loathing Of One Minigame

Watch Dogs has been out for a little while now. Some people have beaten up on it for various things, while others think it’s a perfectly fine time. But there is one thing most of us seem to agree on: That drinking minigame is the worst.


'When You're Making Fun Of His Suit, You're Making Fun Of His Mum'

Video: Far Cry 4′s Executive Producer Dan Hay gives yet another eccentric tidbit of information about Pagan Min, the game’s villain, in an interview Ubisoft just posted.


The World Of Watch Dogs Is More Plausible Than You'd Think

Watch Dogs! It’s a virtual version of an automated American city where everything is hackable. Total fantasy, right? Well…


Sunset Overdrive Co-Op Looks Pretty Damn Fun

Imagine a Tony Hawk game with crazy guns on a Horde Mode-style map. Insomniac Games did more than imagine. They built something very much like it for Sunset Overdrive‘s Chaos Squad multiplayer. Looks crazy enjoyable.

'Hat_Dogs' Is Not An Addon For Watch Dogs Or Team Fortress 2

Dayshot: Sadly, “Hat_Dogs” is not an addon for Watch Dogs or Team Fortress 2 but an impressive piece of editing by STBlackST of TF2 characters hacking each other and teleporting bread. Gotta pause the clip a lot to catch all the puns.


Video Game Pre-Ordering Jumps 17 Sharks, Lands On Face

The only thing proving this isn’t satire is the fact it was published on the official Assassin’s Creed YouTube channel.


Ubisoft Focusing On 'Good Services' And 'Quality', Not DRM

Digital rights management (known by its more villainous acronym “DRM”) isn’t quite the same topic it used to be when most of our games came on CDs and DVDs.

The latter killed its DRM “solution” a few years back after “listening to feedback” and now maintains the stance that DRM is not the answer to piracy.
