Assassin’s Creed: Origins – Learning Instead Of Fighting

The most exciting piece of information I took away from last week’s Ubisoft preview event for Assassin’s Creed: Origins wasn’t the revamped control scheme or changes to the core gameplay the series is known for. No, for me it was the announcement of the Discovery Tour, an open-world and combat-free deep-dive into the history of Ancient Egypt.


Star Trek: Bridge Crew Review

All Hands On Deck!

HIGH Punching it into warp as a fleet of Klingons closed in.

LOW Playing with a helmsman who couldn’t find the heading numbers.

WTF Getting a look at the tactical console on the original Enterprise. How did Chekhov manage it?


First Look: Far Cry 5

Freedom. Faith. Firearms.

It’s upon these tenets that the citizens of Hope County, Montana have built their lives. These are the pillars by which they live, work, and teach their children. These are the fundamental convictions that the residents of this small, middle-American county turn to for guidance in how to come together as a community. They are also the tenets that a dangerous cult twists and perverts for their own ends in Far Cry 5.


For Honor Review

At Least There’s No Tower Climbing

HIGH A duel against a player of equal skill level.

LOW What passes for a single-player campaign.

WTF “You cannot join this session because it is full.” Then why did you put me there, game?!


Ghost Recon Wildlands Preview

Ubisoft recently invited GameCritics for an extended session of their upcoming Ghost Recon Wildlands, and I’m happy to say that even after playing it for four hours straight, I still want to hop right back into the world they created. Wildlands dramatically freshens up this long-standing franchise by setting the action in an open- world, fictionalized version of Bolivia.
