Feature: What else are weddings for?

Eivor from Assassin’s Creed Valhalla can be gay, have sex in public

Privately, with friends, I have referred to Assassin's Creed Valhalla as Assassin's Creed: Big Gay Blondes, which up until now was basically more cosmic ordering than it was based on any actual facts. However, having now had a three hour hands on with the game, I can confirm that on at least one occasion you can have drunk sex with a man, up against a…

By the time the Christmas-ish release date rolls around I will either have exploded like a poor little meat balloon, or gone full circle and lapsed into a coma. Like the…

7 things I demand from Assassin’s Creed Valhalla

I think we probably all have a game, be it franchised or not, that holds a special place in our heart. In my case, one of my ride or die games is historical stab-fest Assassin's Creed. Every time a new one comes out, I will get it and play it to the (occasionally bitter) end. I was overjoyed at the new life breathed into the…
