  • Assassin's Creed Getting Online Multiplayer Via "New Product," Not DLC

    Ubisoft has been interested in introducing multiplayer into its hit Assassin’s Creed franchise for a good long while now, and it appears the publisher will finally get around to doing it sometime this year in the form of a new "episode" in the Assassin’s Creed saga. Ubisoft made the reveal in its third-quarter financial...

  • What Ubisoft's Including In The Assassin's Creed II Downloadable Content

    We knew Assassin's Creed II was getting downloadable content and Ubisoft even announced the names of the expansions -- Battle of Forli and Bonfire of the Vanities -- but Ubisoft has released more details today, including a price breakdown (it's more reasonable than you think). Battle of Forli will be released in late January, and consists of...

  • Assassin's Creed II On Conan O'Brien

    The impending merger of G4's parent company, Comcast, with NBC Universal means I'll have all kinds of awesome new co-workers! Like Conan O'Brien and Andy Richter, who recently discussed Richter's voice work on Assassin's Creed II. I had no idea that the voice of Ezio was provided by Conan's sidekick, but check it out:

  • Nickling and Diming: Limited Edition Games of 2009

    If you ask me, it’s rare to find a collector’s edition that’s actually worth collecting and hanging onto. Most of the time, you’re better off getting pre-order swag than what you’re paying an extra ten to twenty bucks for. And again, if you ask me, exclusive pre-order DLC needs to go away, and fast. As the year...

  • NPD Analysis: November 2009 Software Sales -- Modern Warfare 2 Sells 6 Million

    We knew it was going to be a big month for Activision's Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2. How big? The NPD Group numbers are officially in for November: Modern Warfare 2 sold 6,070,000 copies across both Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 last month. PC numbers aren't available. It was a massive month for both hardware and software, though. Even though...

  • (With Apologies to Wu-Tang Clan) The Art of Sandboxing

    There’s a constant argument in my household. My wife and I tend to mislabel one another’s taste in games. Because she’s a recovering hardcore nerd who used to play pen and paper RPGs before she moved in with me, I often overgeneralize her taste. Truth is, she quit Fable II about eight months ago and hasn’t looked back,...

    It’s fitting that news of an Assassin’s Creed II patch would come a day after I inexplicably broke the game after running into a section of a wall caused me to fall into invisible water beneath Florence. While it was definitely interesting to see the game’s underlying architecture in that form, I’m also pleased to know...

    The march towards Christmas continues, with the next few weeks packed to the brim with holiday parties before people head across the nation to spend time with their families. Somehow, though, I'll find time to play some video games. Specifically, I'll be hopping into the Animus to make more progress in Assassin's Creed II. Ezio's adventure is a...

    Composer Jesper Kyd has outdone himself with his soundtrack for Assassin's Creed II. The man behind the music of video games including Unreal Tournament III, multiple iterations of the Hitman series and of course, the award winning original Assassin's Creed, has crafted an exquisite score for the highly rated sequel. Fortunately for gamers and...
