Every single assassin you see here is either Rick Boer or his wife Dominique.
Today is Ubisoft’s annual earnings report, which means it’s time for a big update on what the French publisher will release over the next year. Ubisoft is promising four big games: Assassin’s Creed, Far Cry, The Crew, and South Park.
Today is the 31st birthday of the Konami Code. The memorable cheat first appeared in 1986's Gradius and has been a fixture of games ever since. Here are ten great uses of this legendary code
The Assassin’s Creed movie might not have been great, but the outfits were nice, which means we’re at least getting some good cosplay out of it.
Surprise, the Assassin’s Creed movie is trash. But it’s not all bad; some of the movie’s effects are quite nice, in particular the Animus’ interface and other shots of computers doing their thing.
Two of us saw Ubisoft’s attempt at transmedia franchising, and we did not care for it. Not one bit.
Last month, this dear precious boy appeared in Assassin’s Creed Ezio Collection and immediately became an Internet sensation. It is with great and terrible regret that I now inform you of his passing.
In the Assassin’s Creed video games, the Animus technology that lets people travel into their DNA’s genetic memories is housed in comfy chairs or beds. In the upcoming movie, using the Animus means getting a needle into your spinal cord. So extreme!
The Assassin’s Creed Ezio Collection isn’t quite the disaster that a recent viral video made it seem. A new video, by SupJamChan, points out that the broken animations in the remastered version of Assassin’s Creed II are caused by a glitch that was also in the original.

Watch Dogs 2 takes place in a fictionalized version of San Francisco that occasionally cuts pretty close to the real world. For example, there’s a Ubisoft marketing director in the game who is not happy about Assassin’s Creed games being leaked to the press.
It looks like Michael Fassbender’s main character in the upcoming video game adaptation is some kind of hardcore criminal locked up in a corporate superjail. You sure training him to kill people with his ancestor’s ancient assassin skills is a good idea, guys?
Well of course there’s an Assassin’s Creed coming this fall—a compilation, called The Ezio Collection, that will include ACII, AC Brotherhood, and AC Revelations, minus the multiplayer. It’ll be out for Xbox One and PS4 on November 15.
The movie isn’t even out yet, but that’s not stopping master Assassin’s Creed cosplayer Rick Boer from taking a swing at Aguilar’s (aka Michael Fassbender) outfit.
Look, I just can’t see how video game cosplay can ever get more authentic than this Assassin’s Creed effort.. Dude’s not just dressed as a pirate, he’s swinging around on an actual old-timey sailing ship.
I’m a terrible assassin.
