First It Was An Assassin’s Creed Expansion, Now It’s Ubisoft’s 8 Year Nightmare

A few people said it was cursed. Others simply had no idea what they were supposed to be making. “Nobody knew what the fuck they were doing,” said one former developer.Skull & Bones development began back in 2013, as a multiplayer expansion to Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag that would release as a post-launch update, three sources with knowledge of the project’s origins said. The expansion soon took on a life of its own, however, morphing into a full blown MMO-like spin-off with the working title Black Flag Infinite, and later a brand new pirate game called Skull & Bones.The…

Kratos Voices Black Panther In Marvel’s Avengers

Though his time in the role as the Marvel cinematic universe’s Black Panther was tragically cut short by colon cancer, actor Chadwick Boseman embodied the role of T’Challa so fully that it’s hard to imagine anyone else providing the character’s voice. Though initially reluctant, Christopher Judge, Stargate alum and the voice of God of War’s Kratos, has stepped into the role for Marvel’s Avengers upcoming Black Panther DLC.

This Week’s PlayStation Event Won’t Include God Of War Or Horizon

During last month’s E3/Summer Game Fest announcement bonanza, Sony was one of the many conspicuously absent companies. However, if you were expecting big, E3-style announcements out of the PlayStation maker’s July showcase, prepare to be disappointed. In a blog post today, Sony Interactive Entertainment senior director of content communications Sid Shuman said that the much-anticipated July 8 “State of Play” event will mostly focus on Deathloop and other third-party games.“In this extended gameplay sequence, we’ll see Cole use his abilities to stealthily skulk across rooftops…or go in guns blazing to create a whole lot of mayhem,” Shuman wrote of Deathloop….

E3 2021: 20 Games Missing From The Show

Silence screams volumes. Over the past five days, video game publishers have shouted announcements for the biggest games from the rooftops. But that chorus has been drowned out by the far more deafening din of what wasn’t announced at E3 2021. Of course, we had some inkling beforehand about which blockbusters wouldn’t show up. Ubisoft said from the jump that we’d see nothing from The Division or the Prince of Persia: Sands of Time remake. Deep Silver, the publisher behind series like Timesplitters and Dead Island, also said that it wouldn’t exhibit any games at E3. Activision, Sony, and EA…

IGN recently sat down with Elden Ring director Hidetaki Miyazaki, who provided some more tantalizing details about what players can expect from the highly anticipated release.If you’ve been living under a rock for the last two years, this whole thing might seem confusing, so here’s a quick…

You Still Don’t Need A PlayStation 5

It’s been six months since the PlayStation 5 came out, and yet the Seto Kaiba action figure that can also run high-end video games remains comically hard to come by. For a while, this irked me. I wanted to be part of the new console generation—the zeitgeist. So I obsessively watched a Twitch channel dedicated to restock updates and even considered buying from a reseller. Then I got to thinking about what I’d actually do if I had a PS5 to call my own. Not much, it turns out.

SpongeBob Players Discover Filthy Game Discs Make Speedrunning Tricks Easier

SpongeBob SquarePants: Battle for Bikini Bottom may be one of the most improbable video games of all time, a licensed project that turned out to be both a great game and a worthwhile challenge for the speedrunning community. But the absurdity doesn’t stop there: SpongeBob speedrunners recently discovered that smudging their Xbox discs could result in much better times, though the tactic may be rendered obsolete in the near future.
