Artistic Discussion: Just Dance 4 (Wii U)

Hey regularity of a feature, how novel. XD Just Dance has a horrid aesthetic to me. I just don’t like its whole visual presentation. It’s very trend-focused and hyper sanitized to minimally offend…it is the epitome of generic art. So I induct Just Dance 4 as its honoree into my “bad” box art collection, as…

Gender Gazette: Assassin’s Creed Odyssey

UPDATE – UBI Soft has changed their stance on the DLC; see below for details. Assassin’s Creed has had some issues in the past when it comes to its women characters. The series has shied away from having women in leading roles in many of the earlier entries, and even gone to bat justifying the…

Opinions: E3 2018 – Beyond Good & Evil 2 goes for my heart

I will spend some time post E3 dissecting this, but UBI Soft managed to produce a standout trailer here, bringing in, you know, Beyond Good and Evil into their BGnE game. Thank Hillys. I am impressed they got a REALLY good Pey’j actor, and JADE is DOMZ so I am intrigued as fuck. Plus we…

Opinions: Five Ways – Beyond Good & Evil

Opinion: Bottom 25 Games – 23) Prince of Persia: Warrior Within

23) Prince of Persia: Warrior Within (GC, UBI Soft, 2004) Let’s begin by saying that Sands of Time was, for its time, a really good 3D action/platformer that resurrected an iconic Western series and helped launch UBI Soft into the behemoth it is today. While the combat was too touchy for its own good, the…

Opinion: Bottom 25 Games – 21) Just Dance 2

21) Just Dance 2 (Wii, UBI Soft, 2010) Just Dance became the poster child of the aggressive marketing push for the “casual” dynamic propagated by the success of the Wii. However, my sole experience with this behemoth of a franchise (which is still releasing titles on the original Wii this year!) made me really wonder…

Opinion: ABOUT GOD DAMN TIME

Fifteen years have passed (more or less) since Beyond Good & Evil, and Michel Ancel’s desire to make a sequel has been one full of frustration, heartache, and patience. But finally, UBI Soft has unveiled the latest iteration of Ancel’s vision, a prequel to the events of the first game and one that looks to…
