  1. The Cats In Assassin’s Kitty Unity Are Cute, But Deadly

    Meow is the moment of your demise!

    Sure, Assassin's Creed games are pretty fun, but you know what would make them better? The same thing that makes literally everything better: kitties. Keep in mind, though, these are definitely all boy cats. Lady cats, their bone structure is just too hard to animate. I heard they did hire a parkour expert to train the boy cats, though, so there's that.

  2. Ubisoft Announces Assassin’s Creed DLC Starring a Woman From 16th Century China

    Apparently women are easier to animate if you only use two and a half dimensions.

    It's no secret that AAA games have a problem with both gender and racial diversity, and that Ubisoft in particular has gotten a lot of heat for saying some dumb things about their inability to address these concerns in their Assassin's Creed series. But it's okay, guys! Now they've announced a new game featuring a woman of color! Sure, it's a sidescroller that you can only play if you buy it as DLC for Assassin's Creed Unity, but—wait, no, that's still frustrating.

  4. Hundreds of Game Developers Sign an Open Letter to End Hate in the Gaming Community

    Be excellent to each other.

    It hasn't exactly been a great time to be a gamer lately—except for huge, gross gaming trolls, who seem to be having a blast taunting people, making threats, and generally being the worst. But those trolls are now the target of an open letter from the gaming community's creators to its fans, asking them to end intolerance for the good of everyone.

  6. Ubisoft’s Far Cry 4 Contest a Far Cry From Good

    A disaster just waiting to happen.

    Ubisoft announces a contest for fans of Far Cry 4 to win a trip to play the game from the top of Mount Everest. This seems like a bad idea all around.

  7. The Voice of Ellie From The Last of Us Has A Few Choice Words For Ubisoft & Assassin’s Creed

    No arguments here.

    The best thing to come out of Ubisoft saying some very foolish things about the all-male roster in Assassin's Creed: Unity has been the outpouring of industry pros talking about it. Well, that, and the cosplay.

  8. Ubisoft Lacks Resources to Animate Women, but Hires a Parkour Expert for Assassin’s Creed

    #ParkourIsTooHardToAnimate?

    Yes, you read that right. The same studio that claimed it would have been too much work to animate female playable characters in Assassin's Creed Unity just hired a guy to enhance the authenticity of the way the game's characters move.

  9. Cosplayers Recreate “Women Are Too Hard to Animate” Quote at GaymerX

    Boobs are googly, right?

    Hopefully these two cosplayers Anita Sarkeesian found at GaymerX—that's the LGBTQ fan-centric game convention that just wrapped up its second-ever annual event this weekend in San Francisco—will start a nationwide trend of dressing up as the dumb things content creators say about their (lack of) female representation. Now, could someone could loan me a couple of Barbie dolls and a set of prosthetic gills? I have an idea I want to try out at the next con.

    Who watches the Watch Dogs?

    Hacking isn't quite as easy as it's depicted in Watch Dogs, but the game's "you can hack anything" gimmick might be closer to reality than you realize. Geez, nobody tell Glenn Beck.
