If Far Cry 3's grim tale of survival was a poor fit for the game's exotic, often preposterous antics, there are no such fears for its seemingly disconnected spin-off. Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon is nothing short of ridiculous, and deliberately so. Ubisoft's standalone shooter celebrates the endearingly...

'The Betrayal,' the second of Assassin Creed 3's 'The Tyranny of King Washington' DLC triad, comes today to Xbox 360, PS3 and PC in North America. It costs 800 MSP or $9.99, or nada if you've got the Season Pass. 'The Betrayal' sees the easily-spelled Ratonhnhaké:ton make his way to Boston....

Up until this point in my life, Puzzle Pirates has always been that "oh yeah, that actually exists!" game to me. Even when I do lists of pirates in MMOs, this title slips right off of my radar. Maybe it's because Puzzle Pirates doesn't make waves (har!) these days, or maybe it's been around for s...

We get it -- there are plenty of games out there these days, and maybe with all of the chaos at the end of last year, the great Rayman Origins slipped through your fingers. Maybe this underrated Ubisoft gem didn't quite make your cut. Yes, it made money, but not nearly enough people appreciated the...

We try to be as even-handed as possible here at Joystiq, but we're going to give you the blunt version: If you were thinking of picking up the From Dust port on PC, you should hold off ... at least for now. While the game doesn't force you to be constantly online to play, Ubisoft has seen fit ...

For being such wildly different games, From Dust and Driver: San Francisco sure have a lot in common. They were both recently delayed, for example, and now news has hit that From Dust will follow Driver's lead by making use of Ubisoft's ubiquitous "Ubisoft Online Service" digital rights managemen...

"Why does God let bad things happen?" It's perhaps the toughest question for people of faith to answer. How is it that a loving deity, who cares equally about all his creations, let some of them suffer so terribly? For whatever strengths or faults it has, From Dust has allowed me to find the a...

If you're looking to spend your long weekend in a quiet, relaxing way, you could do worse than to check out NightSky, the meditative rolling-ball platformer by Knytt creator Nifflas. And now's a good day for it, because Steam has reduced the price to five bucks through 1PM tomorrow. If you're ...
