South Park: The Fractured but Whole Review

Developer: Ubisoft San Francisco Publisher: Ubisoft Platform Reviewed: PlayStation 4 Release Date: October 17, 2017 Acquired via: Purchase by Reviewer As a fan of South Park: The Stick of Truth, and of the TV series that birthed it, this game was a no-brainer. I just refused to buy it at launch because I’m old and gruff and hate everything. Now that I have it, I am very pleased. With exceptions. S...[Read More]

E3 2017 Impressions: Ubisoft Conference

Vive la France! This was strange territory for me. For the first time in a few years, Aisha Tyler was not going to emcee the Ubisoft conference. I know she’s a polarizing person, but I grew to really appreciate her level of cringe. Without her, I have to depend on Ubisoft to step up. And I don’t like their level of cringe. Aisha, come back to me! Past that, I had little expectations from the ladie...[Read More]

E3 2017: Assassin’s Creed Origins

Kill like an Egyptian After a yearlong hiatus, the mainline Assassin’s Creed series gets a new title. Fans of the series are no doubt hoping that Assassin’s Creed Origins eschews the stale gameplay that plagued more recent titles and returns the series to prominence. The game takes players all the way back to ancient Egypt, circa 49 B.C. You play as Bayek and make your way through the ancient land...[Read More]

For Honor Players Threaten Boycott; Ubisoft Reacts

Consumers exercise their power for good After a contentious back-and-forth between French publisher Ubisoft and players of their fighting game For Honor, gamers have resorted to the only thing publishers seem to listen to nowadays: RAGE! And it worked! On a post in the For Honor subreddit, redditor Jbaayoun proposed a boycott of the game. The boycott consisted of a 24-hour blackout beginning on Ap...[Read More]

Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Wildlands Review

Fun With Friends, Gets Boring Solo Developer: Ubisoft Paris, Massive Entertainment Publisher: Ubisoft Platform Reviewed: Xbox One Release Date: March 7, 2017 Acquired via: Purchase by Reviewer I played the open beta for Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Wildlands like about 6.8 million other people did. It was enjoyable for the amount of time I played it then. Now that I have the final version, I still en...[Read More]

For Honor Review

For Honor Review   Developer: Ubisoft Montreal Publisher: Ubisoft Platform Reviewed: Xbox One Release Date: February 14, 2017 Acquired via: Purchase by Reviewer I had to write about this game because I need to let out my frustrations about a game that I love. For Honor is a great game that’s screwed by Ubisoft’s stupidity. First I have to talk about the game itself. To me, For Honor is a figh...[Read More]

Ghost Recon Wildlands Beta Impressions

The Digital Crack crew put the closed beta for Ubisoft’s Ghost Recon Wildlands through its paces. Two members decided to give their impressions from two different perspectives: single player and multiplayer. Here are their impressions. Single-Player Impressions by Uncle Willy I was unfortunately segregated from my Digital Crack mates when the closed beta for Ghost Recon Wildlands opened up. Each o...[Read More]

Assassin’s Creed “Enter the Animus” Trailer Released

I know, I know, we haven’t posted up any information about the upcoming Assassin’s Creed movie. Speaking for myself, part of the reason in fear. The trailers look interesting, and Michael Fassbender is a great actor. But…IT’S ASSASSIN’S CREED! Plus, it’s a video game movie. Warcraft was treated pretty harshly, and I thought it was decent. I dunno about this one&...[Read More]

Assassin’s Creed: The Ezio Collection Review

Developer: Ubisoft Montreal Publisher: Ubisoft Platform Reviewed: PlayStation 4 Release Date: November 15, 2016 Acquired via: Purchase by Reviewer I jumped into the Assassin’s Creed series extremely late. My son was on board immediately, however, and I watched him play the original on his Xbox 360 to see if it interested me. Ultimately, I was not sold based on what I saw. I never saw any of the De...[Read More]

Never Played: Assassin’s Creed: Unity

To me, the Assassin’s Creed series died with Unity. It was, without a doubt, the worst game in the series. I’m including Assassin’s Creed III in that argument. And I said that without ever having played Unity. That is an egregious fault on my part. I based that declaration on the negative press Unity received upon launch. I based it on the raft of glitches and crashes people experienced on launch ...[Read More]

Ubisoft Releases Statistics of For Honor Closed Alpha

For Honor had its closed alpha last month, and Ubisoft has released some infographics that detail a lot of the data collected during the test.  The data shown mainly deals with hero preference, mode preference, and kill and death rates. The first infographic shows that the Orochi was the most picked hero during the closed alpha. The hero was picked by 30% of participating gamers. He was followed b...[Read More]
