Official Apology Issued

Assassin's Creed Unity Season Pass Owners Get Free Game, Everyone Gets Free DLC

Today is a day for apologies apparently. Ubisoft have issued a formal apology for the state of Assassin's Creed Unity at launch - one in which an upcoming patch is needed to fix over 300 bugs. Obviously people are upset and wonder how a AAA title can be released in such an unfinished state. It looks like Ubisoft wants to try to make amends by offering some free goodies.

So dark. So below.

Dive into The Dark Below In Destiny's New Trailer

So you've already conquered the Vault of Glass and you've roughed up Atheon so many times he's practically given you an entirely new wardrobe. What is left for a Guardian and his robot pal to do? Luckily, Destiny's first expansion, "The Dark Below" jump-jets onto consoles the 9th of December. Guardians of all ages can enjoy a fistful of new content ranging from story missions, crucible maps, special weapons, and of course, the new raid.

Just so long as it's some sort of variant on "really big creature".

Help Turtle Rock Name The Fourth Evolve Monster!

Matchmaking issues persist

343 Issues Formal Apology for Halo: The Master Chief Collection Issues

While we found Halo: The Master Chief Collection to be an amazing value and a nearly perfect cooperative experience, the same joy we got from playing it could not be said for everyone. If your focus for the game is on Halo's competitive multiplayer you've been stuck in a matchmaking limbo since the game launched two weeks ago and dealing with constant frustration as you wait for the game to give you a match to play. Those issues still persist today and 343 Industries' Bonnie Ross has decided to formally apologize for not getting things fixed yet.

Playstation Co-Op Games Sale Now Live

Christmas has come early for us co-op gamers (at least for those of us on Sony platforms)!  Playstation just announced a slick new deal focused entirely on co-op gaming, presumably to help calm your family's nerves after two hours of bickering about why your aunt brought her new boyfriend to Thanksgiving dinner.  It's like, why does he even come if he doesn't even like the Bears!  Also, the stuffing he brought tastes sort of like motor oil.

New Dev Diary For Resident Evil: Revelations 2 Details Claire's Updated Look

Claire Redfield, the star of Resident Evil: Revelations 2, has had a rough life.  For one, she's spent most of it chasing after her deadbeat brother, who's too busy following his dream of murdering every zombie on God's green earth to take a minute and send her a text.  In doing so, the poor lady's also built up enough PTSD to make even the most seasoned psychiatrist wish he'd listened to his parents and gotten that accounting degree.  Nevertheless, Capcom just won't leave her be.  In making her the lead of their upcoming game, they've made some updates to her character, possibly to reflect the number of times she's had to scream that she's not a zombie.

Be a Polite, Friendly Real World Hero in Emergency 5

It's been almost eight years since the last numbered release, but now it's time to strap on your rescue gear and save the city. Emergency 5 is on the way.

I wonder if any cows are actually involved in this game.

Blast Psycho Shrooms In the Apocalypse Cow Demo

If a self-aware parody action/platformer is what you're looking for, turn thy gaze to Apocalypse Cow. It's always good to laugh at yourself, and developers Monsters have dedicated an entire title to the self-deprecation of video games. Apocalypse Cow recently marched its way through Steam's Greenlight process and is currently scheduled to go live on both PC and Mac in the first quarter of next year.

Soar Into Warframe's Archwing Update

It's time to fly your robot ninjas into the infinite blackness of space. Warframe's new update, entitled "Archwing," finally puts the "space" in "space ninja," and slaps a couple of sweet cyborg wings onto your Tenno. Your ninja-flipping robot can equip themselves with a variety of these Archwings, enabling them to waltz past the walls of their ships and do battle in Zero-G. It's almost like the developers forced themselves to think about how you can make a robot ninja cooler. Simple: make 'em fly.

New Trailer For Over 9000 Zombies! Shows Off Map Editor

Over 9000 Zombies!, the latest in top-down zombie genocide entertainment, has released a new trailer showcasing its newest feature:  a map editor!  Now you and up to three friends can blast hordes of undead on a soccer field, or in a warehouse that looks strangely like Lemmy from Motorhead.  Not only can you present these new creations to your friends, but developer Loren Lemcke has also given you the option to upload your maps to the Steam Workshop.  From there, strangers from all over the world can download your map, fight zombies, and say to themselves, "Come to think of it, I have always wanted to headshot zombies in the parking lot of a Denny's."
