Assassin’s Creed Origins

Assassin’s Creed Origins

If I had to sum up the last act of Assassin’s Creed Origins in three words, those three words would be, “Wait, there’s more ?”

Origins is a big game by any measure. Thanks to the smart way the designers snake the story quests down and back up the Nile river, the map feels bigger than it is, and it’s huge to begin with. But it isn’t until the game’s final act that the scale starts to feel a touch absurd.

Once Bayek has freed Faiyum of the Crocodile’s influence, he returns to Aya and Cleopatra in Herakleion, in the northeast corner of the map. The game’s story kicks into overdrive, seemingly hurtling toward its conclusion. We hop between Bayek’s […]

Robot Writing, AI, and Marketing: It’s the End of the World as We Know It

Picture if you will, dear reader, the marketing apocalypse, a place where human-powered engines are less and less relevant and we are facing a new dawn: robot writing, triggered email campaigns, automated social scheduling and responses, ways to track users wherever they go.

Oh, hang on. Isn’t that . . . ? the future is here Yeah, it is. We would say welcome to the future, but that scares an awful lot of people. Case in point: all these stories about the robots coming to take our marketing jobs. There is legitimate worry in our industry today, and with good reason. AI and marketing are a perfect mix; so much of what we do involves crunching data and analytics. Surely […]

Here’s Everything You Need To Know About ‘Dark Souls: Remastered’

"Only, in the ancient legends it is stated, that one day an undead shall be chosen to leave the undead asylum, in pilgrimage, to the land of ancient lords, Lordran."

Naturally, my first thought upon waking this morning was "Praise the sun!" A Dark Souls remaster that I can play in 60 frames-per-second on PS4 and Xbox One and in 4K resolution on my PS4 Pro or Xbox One X. A remaster that I can play on PC without having to use DSFix to make it even remotely playable. A remaster I can play on the go because it’s also coming to the Nintendo Switch…

Some really cool stuff about the remaster that goes beyond HD textures and a higher […]

What we want from Overwatch in 2018

2017 was a big year for Overwatch. Blizzard’s mega-popular multiplayer shooter celebrated its first anniversary, added several new heroes to the roster (including the long-awaited Doomfist ), and introduced not only new maps, but new gametypes (one of the things we asked for last year ) like Deathmatch and the custom game server browser.

The inaugural season of the Overwatch League is set to kick off next week, and in a recent developer update , game director Jeff Kaplan laid out some of what’s on deck for Overwatch in the coming year, including new cosmetics in the base non-event loot boxes, updates to the year’s seasonal events, and the […]

Halo 6 Could Potentially Feature A Battle Royale Mode

Battle Royale definitely isn’t a genre the popular online game PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds invented, but the record breaking title sure did pave the way for this under-appreciated style of gameplay. Since PUBG has been smashing records left and right, more and more games are leaning towards the craze including Fortnite’s Battle Royale mode and Paladins: Battlegrounds. With Halo 6 currently in development and still in a position to make crucial changes, it wouldn’t be that far fetched to see this battlegrounds craze his Master Chief and the fam.

As development progresses, so does the rumor mill. The latest report comes from Klobrille , who definitely has some credible leaks from the past to his name, says that the new Halo w […]
