There's been at least one new entry in the Assassin's Creed series every year since 2009 (or 2007, if you want to count some of the portables most would rather forget), but 2016 might finally be the year we get a break.

Take this with as many grains of salt as you see fit, but a rumor originating on 4chan suggests the next Assassin's Creed game will be set in Egypt, and it won't be released until 2017. Why? According to the supposed insider who leaked the news, "It will be a complete revamp of the series. The game is going for a Witcher feel, with player progression, freeform combat system. Horse is back, and boats too. It's made by the Black Flag team." It will supposedly take place before the Assassins and Templars existed, serving as a prequel to all other Assassin's Creed games.

Meanwhile, Kotaku claims to have heard the same from as many as three other sources last year. We'll have to wait for E3 to see if it turns out to be true. Let's not forget there's an Assassin's Creed movie coming out this year, so it's either very strategic or very strange to not have a game come out this year.

Ubisoft, for their part, has issued this blanket statement on the rumor:

We can’t comment on rumor or speculation. We’re always happy when players are excited about our games, past, present and future. In the meantime, we hope that the latest images from the Assassin’s Creed movie set will keep fans of the franchise happy and eager to find out more!


Very informative, Ubisoft.

Some genius person got Windows 95 running on a New 3DS. Why, you ask? For the possibility of running old Windows games on a handheld device. And also because, well, why not? If you dream it, it can be done. 




What a time to be alive indeed.

Nine-year-old Scott Lundy was so excited to receive a PS4 this christmas until he opened the box and found a wooden replica of the system placed there by thieves. To add insult to injury, they included a "crude drawing of male genitals" (missed opportunity for a dickbutt) on the wood and a message that said "from cock and balls with love."



Scott's parents were able to return the console to Target and get a replacement, but Scott's faith in Santa Claus is shaken. I guess Call of Duty: Black Ops III and The Uncharted Collection will be there to carry him through this difficult time.

uncharted 4 delayed to april 2016

Worry not, this delay only pushes the game back by about a month, but it isn't the first time Naughty Dog has changed the release date on their game; Uncharted 4 was originally supposed to be released near the end of 2015, then was moved to March, and now April.

The new release date for Uncharted 4: A Thiefs End is April 26, 2016.

According to creative director and game director Neil Druckmann & Bruce Straley, the game has been delayed because there's still polishing to do:

This is our largest Uncharted game to date, and the team has been working incredibly hard to meet the challenge of closing out the game’s development in a timely manner. However, as we approached our final deadlines and started wrapping up the game’s levels, we realized that several key sequences needed extra resources to bring them to the finish line. After carefully considering all of our options, we decided to extend our schedule, making sure that we get a few more polish passes before submitting our gold master (the final disc for manufacturing).


They've gotta take their time to get the final chapter in Nathan Drake's story right, and that's alright with me.
