Far Cry 6 Preview

With its eerily familiar locations, its plot about freeing an island from brutal dictator, and a casually-murderous villain from the TV show Better Call Saul, Ubisoft’s upcoming Far Cry 6 immediately feels like a knowing throwback to the genre-redefining Far Cry 3. The crucial difference between them, however, lies in the point of view. Where FC3 wanted players to feel baffled and intrigued by the strange new world they were exploring, FC6 puts them in the role of a citizen of Yara, the fictional Carribean island on which the game is set.


Looking Back: Assassin’s Creed Odyssey (2018)

I’ve never been an Assassin’s Creed fan. From the start, the series has always felt too bloated and full of busywork, and the premise of reliving past lives through DNA reconstruction (because DNA records every minute of action and every word of every ancestor’s life, I guess?) never gelled for me.


Watch Dogs Legion Review

Resistance & Revenge Without Retribution

HIGH A unique and lengthy list of playable characters.

LOW The story suffers severely with no central protagonist driving it.

WTF The quirk of “Dies Randomly”


Hyper Scape Review

We’ve Been Here Before

HIGH That soundtrack absolutely rules.

LOW Navigating menus like a hub world.

WTF Yeah I’ve been in the pre-game lobby for a while now
