  2. Kill and Conquer: Traditionally “Male” Values and Video Game Violence

    Essay

    Hey, you! Violence-lover! With the video games! Put that controller down and listen to me, if you can curb your insatiable blood-lust for five seconds. Yes, I can hear you scoff already. Bah! This fool thinks that just because I enjoy video games, I am a violent person! Fancy book-learnin’ people say this is not true! Howsoever that may be the case, let’s talk, you and I. Let’s talk about power in video games. Because you as well as I know the feeling.

  3. Ubisoft Will Mine Your Online Data to Creep You out in Their Watch Dogs Marketing Site

    Who watches the watchdogs?

    Ubisoft has put together a clever marketing site for their hacking-themed game, Watch Dogs. If you use Facebook, it will mine your data (and your friends' data that they've shared with you) and present an eerie analysis of the type of person you are, your net worth, and which of your friends could be used against you.

  5. Ubisoft’s Child of Light Looks Stunning and Amazing, Must Play Immediately

    Seriously, is it 2014 yet? We need this beautiful JRPG co-op in our lives.

    Montreal-based Ubisoft announced a bunch of new downloadable titles at Digital Days, but nothing caught our eye quite like Child of Light. A love-letter to 16-bit JRPGs like Chrono Trigger, Child of Light is built using the UbiArt Framework (the same tool used for Rayman Origins), by the same creative team behind Far Cry 3. And it. Looks. Amazing.

  7. PETA Protests Whaling In Assassin’s Creed IV, Just In Case There Is Whaling In Assassin’s Creed IV

    Well, PETA has invented a ludicrous thing to be outraged over, so it must be Wednesday. This week, it's Ubisoft's upcoming Assassin's Creed IV that has the animal rights group all in a tizzy over portrayals of whaling in the game. Or rather, what might potentially be portrayals of whaling in the game, since the game isn't out yet, and all we know about the game's latest maritime installment is that at some point, the protagonist is on a ship and sees a whale. This, according to PETA, makes the game developers whale hating monsters who are worse than 1,000 Stalins, presumably because having any other reaction to it would require the folks at PETA to actually think about a reasoned response for like two minutes.

  8. Ubisoft Embraces Piracy, Announces Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag

    Okay, so maybe Ubisoft hasn't actually embraced piracy in the literal sense, but they have embraced pirate-themed video games. After much speculation, and a number of prominent leaks, Ubisoft has confirmed that their latest and greatest Assassin's Creed video game will be officially called Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag. Why they've decided to immediately move to the next installment of the franchise is unclear, but Ubisoft sure does like putting out a new version of this game each year.

  9. Strange Things Are Happening With Ubisoft and Electronic Arts’ Online Stores

    Video game publishers Ubisoft and Electronic Arts are up to something that can only be described as bewildering. Ubisoft will be selling third-party games (i.e. not their own) on their online store, Uplay. Odd, but simple enough. They're also going to be selling their own games on competitor Electronic Art's online store, Origin. Huh? No, wait, I have a theory.

  10. Tom Hardy to Star in Splinter Cell Movie, Probably Will Be More Intelligible Than Bane

    Ubisoft, the video game developer and publisher, is pushing traditional media in a hard way. Not only do they have an Assassin's Creed film in the mix, but they're working on bringing Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell to the big screen as well. Barring our typical distaste with video games being made into movies, both franchises could prove excellent fodder for the stereotypical action film. Now that the Splinter Cell movie has Tom Hardy cast as protagonist Sam Fisher, it'll be even tougher to ignore.
