Celebrate Lunar New Year by picking up Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: China for free

Stealthy 2.5D side-scrolling platformer Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: China is free for keepsies as part of Ubisoft’s Lunar New Year sale right now. It’s been a while since I played this first entry in the Chronicles trilogy, and it was on a platform forbidden in these halls, but I remember it being quite good. The painterly style is certainly nice to look at, and if you…

Adventure Time: Pirates Of The Enchiridion sets sail today

Adventure Time remains one of my favourite cartoons ever, but so far none of the games based on it have done its weird and wonderful world and characters justice. Pirates Of The Enchiridion looks to be closest to the mark so far - a seafaring RPG with turn-based combat, released today. Below, an authentic-looking launch trailer featuring the full TV voice cast.

Adventure Time spawning an open-world sailing game

“Adventure Time! Tell all your pals, let’s travel very faraway!” I can sing the opening of Adventure Time perfectly because I enjoy it as a televisual experience. Good news for me and others like me: An open-world Adventure Time game with sail boats and voice actors off the telly is coming out next year. Adventure Time: Pirates Of The Enchiridion sees the land of Ooo…

Tubular: Wave hello to Surf World Series

You either surf, or you fight. And while there's plenty of the latter in this multicoloured monster of an industry, there's less of the former. The noble sport of surfing has been underrepresented by games, say developers Climax Studios, of Silent Hill: Shattered Memories fame. So they've decided to make Surf World Series [official site], an "arcade-style" wave-rider with five of the world's best surfing…

AssCreed Chronicles 2.5D Spin-Offs Conclude Jan/Feb

Assassin's Creed seems to be how Ubisoft ended up channeling their Prince of Persia-y urgings, taking the parkour-o-fighting from the platformer's 3D outings into open worlds with some shite about aliens, but it's sorta looped all the way back around. The spin-off Assassin's Creed Chronicles is subseries of side-on platformers, see. AssCreed Chronicles: China arrived in April, and now Ubi have announced release dates for…

Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: China Swings Out Today

It's possible that you might, in the fifteen minutes between the release of each successive Assassin's Creed game, forget that Assassin's Creed exists. If that's the case, Ubisoft have a remedy: more Assassin's Creed games. The Assassin's Creed Chronicles is a 3-game 2.5D series that was announced earlier this year and the first is out today. Assassin's Creed Chronicles: China [official site] has a launch…

2.5D Murder: Three Assassin’s Creed Chronicles Games

Those man-murdering Assassins will be larking about in 2.5 dimensions soon, or 3.5 if you count time, as Ubisoft have announced a whole subseries of side-on spin-offs set across different eras. We already knew about Assassin's Creed Chronicles: China [official site] as Ubi offered it as part of the ill-fated Season Pass for Assassin's Creed Unity. Now they've also announced India and Russia games, as…

A Leaked Look At The Cancelled Legacy Of Kain: Dead Sun

Cast your mind back to 2013, when Square Enix announced the first new Legacy of Kain game in a decade. Well. Sorta. Nosgoth is set in the same universe as the vamp 'em up series, but a free-to-play multiplayer game rather than the usual singleplayer murder adventure. Well! Turns out, according to whispers and rumours, Nosgoth was the spun-off multiplayer side from a Legacy of…

Feature: Doesn't Totally Suck

Castlevania: Lords of Shadow Ultimate Edition review

Some words from Mr Stanton. If there's one thing you expect from a Castlevania game, it's Patrick Stewart. Sorry I mean vampires! Definitely vampires. Lords of Shadow has coffins full of the buggers, though it's shy about the fact and sticks them behind one of the most turgid and over-extended openings I've ever had the misfortune to play through. Things do get sexy, but to…
