For Honor’s emotes give players a chance to be flashy during their duels, even if the new ones are a bit expensive. It turns out that emotes have a bit more use that simply taunting opponents.
Ghost Recon Wildlands seems innocuous at first glance. It is a passable open world shooter where cooperative play leads to exciting gunfights and silly stunts. But Wildland’s core is far more insipid. It is propaganda. It is jingoism made playable, perpetuating the failed logic that all it takes to solve the world’s…
I’ve played about eleven hours of Ghost Recon Wildlands, sniping enemies and trolling my hapless squadmates. It’s a pretty good time although I’m a bit worried that the fun won’t last forever. Here are some early thoughts on what works and what doesn’t.
Yesterday, Tetris Ultimate, the latest official version of the classic puzzle game, was released on Steam for $14.99. Today, I asked for a refund.
No more obnoxious switching.
Hey buddy, forgot your cup. Grabbed from YouTuber Robbaz's compilation, this is one of those Watch Dogs glitches with a happy ending.
Watch Dogs' launch on PC has proven to be a little rocky, with reports around the web noting problems with uPlay, Ubisoft's distribution service.
"No, Uplay will not be featured in South Park: The Stick of Truth." Obsidian Entertainment, on whether Steam users would have to use Ubisoft's online platform to play the game. They later clarified that on PC, Stick of Truth would be "a Steam game, with Steam achievements," and that "Uplay was not integrated at all."
Did anyone actually choose Uplay? The "Thank you for choosing Uplay" message that pops up every time a game is launched from within Ubisoft's game control service gets funnier every time I see it. Redditor Purkle agrees.
Say you've been looking forward to playing Splinter Cell: Blacklist on PC. And yet, due to an easily fixed but annoying bug, you can't get the game to start. Man!
Ubisoft says hackers exploited one of its websites to gain access to names, email addresses and encrypted passwords of uPlay members. While no credit card information was compromised, the publisher is suggesting that users change their passwords.
Ubisoft's name has been mud with PC gamers for a good long while. Ending always-on requirement to play games and other DRM restrictions helped it somewhat, but it is still widely perceived as a publisher most interested in Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 titles—and for good reason, as Rayman Legends fans might say.
The last couple of weeks have given us two of the biggest games of the fall, both from Ubisoft. Assassin's Creed III continues the historically focused swashbuckling adventure series, and Far Cry 3 lets players loose on a violent South Pacific island paradise.
Ubisoft's uPlay app is now available for the Wii U. Find it in the Nintendo eShop. The file is 43 MB.
Not one to be left behind by the likes of EA , Ubisoft officially launched their uPlay client for PC today.
A major security flaw in Ubisoft's Uplay service for launching their PC games was not a product of devious programming nor part of the company's DRM strategy, the publisher of Assassin's Creed and Far Cry 3 said in a statement released this evening.
Ubisoft has caught a lot of flak from PC gamers over their uPlay system, online-authentication DRM that most recently came to attention for being unavailable at exactly the wrong time.
Ubisoft's uPlay, the online service largely used for validating the digital rights management on PC games, has been down for much of the day. If this is planned maintenance, Ubisoft didn't do a great job of communicating that to its user base, which is ripping the publisher a new on on its official forums.
In a sign that either the PlayStation 3 version of Assassin's Creed Revelations needs more public beta testing than the Xbox 360 version or that Sony and AC publisher Ubisoft are—gasp—using a beta as a marketing stunt, the Assassin's Creed: Revelations multiplayer beta will launch next month only on PS3, initially to…
