Ranking the Assassin’s Creed Franchise, Part 7

3 Apr

2. Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag I LOVE PIRATES. So this should have been an easy sell for me, but after Assassin’s Creed III introduced me to the most boring Assassin ever and botched Desmond’s present day plotline in the most egregious way possible, I was about ready to ditch my favorite game franchise. Black [...]

Ranking the Assassin’s Creed Franchise, Part 5

27 Mar

4. Assassin’s Creed The game that started it all, the first entry in the now globally popular videogame franchise is considered more of a proof of concept than a fully-realized game. Back in 2007, Ubisoft seemed to be testing the waters for a more mature Prince of Persia with Assassin’s Creed, and the game also [...]

Ranking the Assassin’s Creed Franchise, Part 3

9 Feb

6. Assassin’s Creed III Before Unity, this was the game that nearly broke the Assassin’s Creed franchise for me. Before it was announced, I had expected ACIII to be set in the French Revolution, like Unity ultimately was, because it seemed like the natural next step after three games set during the Renaissance. The American [...]

Ranking the Assassin’s Creed Franchise, Part 2

28 Jan

7. Assassin’s Creed: Unity Earlier this month I called Assassin’s Creed: Unity one of my favorite games of the year. I have since recanted those comments and redacted them from the site. It isn’t a terrible game, but my enjoyment of it petered out after a week, and it thus seems unfair to hold it [...]

Ranking the Assassin’s Creed Franchise, Part 1

22 Jan

Enough about feelings and life and all that lame shit, let’s get back to what really matters: arbitrary rankings of videogame franchises. Assassin’s Creed is one of my all-time favorites, but I am not a rabid fanboy, which is to say I’m not a total idiot. Thus, my relationship with Assassin’s Creed is a love-hate [...]

6. Assassin’s Creed: Unity REDACTED This game was boring and annoying. I take back everything I said about it.

Pirates? Meh. The Tarnished Legacy of Assassin’s Creed, Pt. 1

21 Mar

Despite the fact that Ubisoft had declared last October’s Assassin’s Creed III to be the last annual entry in the franchise, it was announced recently that a new game would be hitting shelves this fall, Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag. The game has generated a lot of buzz due to its pirate setting… and a [...]

Assassin’s Creed: Revelations Impressions

25 Nov

MAJOR SPOILERS I’m a huge fan of the Assassin’s Creed series. Truth be told, I’m probably the biggest AC fan I know. While all my coworkers were babbling on about Skyrim and all the dragons they were going to slay, I was getting pumped for the conclusion to the stories of Ezio Auditore da Firenze [...]

Alex’s Most Anticipated Games- E3 2011 Edition

10 Jun

With E3 over, I decided to rank the games featured at the show I’m most excited for. Keep in mind that I’m leaving off games I already put on my prior Most Anticipated Games post, such as Bioshock Infinite. 1. Mass Effect 3 March 6th, 2012 This is a no brainer. In the past I’ve [...]

E3-aganza!!

8 Jun

As I’m writing this, I’m watching the 10+ hours of E3 footage on G4 and Spike that I recorded with my DVR. Even though I’ve never gone, E3 is one of my favorite times of the year, as we are literally flooded with juicy videogame news. Hopefully Games Abyss will post my latest editorial, on [...]
