That's a huge number, and it shows that the company has really latched on to the iPhone as a huge market for its mobile games. Gameloft hasn't been slow on development at all -- the French company has...

Did anyone else think that Sony would have finally killed off the UMD movie for real by now? Guess again, suckers. The company just spilled some more details on that Assassin's Creed: Bloodlines PSP Entertainment Pack, and in addition to that sexy white PSP-3000 and 2GB Memory Stick PRO Duo, your ...

Oh ... dear. This is exactly the sort of video the internet shouldn't be showing us. Does it not realize the colossal, sensory danger posed by a combination of two of our favorite franchises? Seeing the Assassin's Creed garb running around a modern environment is one thing, but when the mise en sc&e...

In an attempt to address criticism aimed at the game's repetitive "investigation missions," Ubisoft has detailed (via IGN) some of the enhancements made to the PC version of free-roaming bump-off sim, Assassin's Creed. Four new types of missions will be added to protagonist Altair's premortem pream...

We can finally see what Altair's Chronicles is going to look like, even if we don't exactly know how the game works.

We haven't heard much about the DS version of Ubisoft mega smash Assassin's Creed since we learned of its existence back in October, but we've finally had a little light shed on it by a GoNintendo reader who seems to have nabbed the game's box art. Click here for an embiggened version. We're kind ...

Altair himself would probably admire the stealthiness of the build-up to Assassin's Creed on the DS. Since the title was confirmed, not a word has passed through Ubisoft's lips about the project, despite the fact that it launches under a month from now. But finally, after a lengthy period of time, w...

Does anyone else find it suspicious that Assassin's Creed is due out on the DS in one month and we still haven't heard even the most basic of information? We haven't seen one screen -- we don't even know what kind of game it is. We could interpret this seeming blackout in one of two ways: first, and...

Pac-Man Championship Edition (XBLA) If not worthy of a Top 10 spot, then certainly Pac-Man deserves Joystiq's 'Comeback Player of the Year' award. I covered Pac-Man CE's overblown launch in early June, but it wasn't until I became a devoted player at home that I realized the sheer genius of the ...

Ubisoft's hugely anticipated bump-off sim created quite the controversy, though oddly not for the stylish and quite visceral violence it so gleefully inflicted upon authority figures. Instead, Assassin's Creed (or Assassin's Crud, depending on who you ask) divided critics, with some being utterly e...

Apparently the stories that a video game's parents tell it really are true: One game can make a difference! In an inspiring story that's sure to be adapted into a Disney animated film (featuring the voices of Nelly Furtado, Justin Timberlake and Robin Williams as the side-splitting "Ubi"), the sa...

This week, rapid-fire ranter Yahtzee turns his verbal assassination skills on a game with a matching murderous motif, Assassin's Creed. Though Ubisoft's expansive bump-off sim has divided gamers and critics alike, Yahtzee picks a clear side by the end of this Zero Punctuation episode -- and it's n...

It's a jam packed edition of the cast this week, kids. First up, there's some hot Justin on Daffy action. Then, we explain why people who don't like Assassin's Creed are stupid. Then, we get an incredibly brief visit from the Silver Surfer himself, Doug Jones. Finally, all hell breaks loose with ...

Joystiq reader Flynn tipped us off to a rather bizarre, er, "glitch" in Assassin's Creed where death is just another gateway to life ... twice. Think you're seeing double? (Or quadruple if you play both videos at the same time.) Well, you're right. Enjoy the video after the break. Joystiq reader...

That's the conclusion reached by one Rob Cooper, the man in charge of both Ubisoft UK and the festivities following the triumphant debut of Assassin's Creed at the top of the UK charts. The ambitious bump-off bonanza became the third-fastest selling Xbox 360 game ever, a fact which Ubisoft sees as...

With news slowed to a slight trickle and good games coming in a torrent, we're forced to veer from the typical format to talk about the games we've been playing. If you're looking for the secret, inside scoop on Mass Effect, Assassin's Creed, Rock Band, Kane and Lynch: Dead Men or a bevy of other...
