Have You Played… Rayman Origins?

Rayman is now a bit part player. Like Ubi stablemate Sam Fisher, his days of being the main attraction are over. Despite the quality of 2013’s Rayman Legends, the limbless wonder seems confined to making sporadic appearances in games that just aren’t as good as his own.Although, it’s not like Ray’s a stranger to a comeback. After many years on the shelf, his act was…

The best platform games on PC

The biggest names in platforming used to live only on console, but it's on PC now that the genre is thriving. Indies have taken the simple ingredients and spun them off in umpteen directions (but still normally from left to right). Below you'll find a collection of the very best platform games on PC - including puzzle platformers, physics platformers, platformers with roguelike elements, and…

Humble Ubi: Grow Home, Gunslinger And Rayman For $1

The hours I've spent with XCOM 2 were enough to silence my inner-cynic for a while. It's the king of sequels. Nothing sets him off on one of his diatribes quite like a Big Publisher Bundle though. What better place is there to cast off all of those unwanted spin-offs and fifteenth entries in series that became stale years ago than a cheap compilation package?…

Arm Yourself: Ubisoft Confirms Rayman Legends

In retrospect, it'd be kind of silly to name a game "Origins" and then bury the franchise immediately afterward, wouldn't it? And so, somewhat unsurprisingly, Ubisoft's given an official magically levitating thumbs-up to all the Rayman scuttlebutt that's been floating around for the past couple days. Specifically, the game's called Rayman Legends, and - true to the leaked screenshots and video (after the break, courtesy of…

The Origin Of Sequels: Another Rayman, Maybe

I'm currently in the middle of a gentle altercation with other meejaa types on Twitter about my earlier worrying around posting about Kickstarted games that don't exist yet, and one of the things that's come up is that due to our by and large consisting of curated content (yeah, we are sometimes guilty of posting about Today's Big News, but that's because we do genuinely…

Rayman Oranges review

Rayman: Origins Oranges, the latter-day reboot of the Rayman platform series, made its way to PC yesterday, which was happy news for anyone who picked up on the surprising critical buzz around last year's console versions. I've been bounding through the singleplayer, though have yet to try the co-op multiplayer mode. Here = words.I’ve pinballed from outright glee to making a pathetic whimpering noise like…

Hoo-Ray! Rayman Origins Demo Hits Steam

It's late o'clock in Britainland, so forgive this being a shortie of a post but... well, as the headline says, really. The lovely Rayman Origins, which made all the right people cheer over on console, is due on PC on March 29, but a demo unexpectedly arrived earlier today. Go get (the demo link is over on the right of the page that links to),…

Rayman: Origins Coming To PC, DRM Free

Well here's a thing. The absolutely superb platformer, Rayman: Origins, is making its way from console to the PC on the 30th March. Michael "Beyond Good & Evil" Ancel returned to the 2D side-scroller he created, and the result is genuinely splendid. You can pre-order it now at the UbiShop for £20, which is half the price it launched at on 360 and PS3 (although…
