Down by 1: Microsoft has cancelled ‘Scalebound’

Down by 1: Microsoft has cancelled ‘Scalebound’Exclusive video games are the currency that drives console sales. I didn't borrow that phrase from any industry insiders, poetic as it may be. It's the truth. I have an Xbox One because of Halo. I'm afraid I have some very bad news for anyone that thought about picking up an Xbox One for PlatinumGames' Scalebound.

Endorsed: The plight of gaming’s contract workersPerhaps it's fate that Polygon would choose this week of all weeks to run a piece of longform concerning the gaming industry's practice of using contractors to save on game production as much as possible. We're now comfortably in the awkward lull between the big hits of November and the silent but important February releases that are coming our way in 2017. Right now seems a perfectly good time to reflect on how our games get made. Especially as people who work for Crytek examine what to do now that it's announced plans to close five different studios.

The Culture: Oh boy, the Assassin’s Creed movie reviews are in!

The Culture: Oh boy, the Assassin’s Creed movie reviews are in!Remember when motion pictures based off film franchises were good? I'm sure that you don't; they've always been terrible. Mortal Kombat was hot trash. The Tomb Raider movies were uninteresting and wooden. Some thought that Ubisoft's Assassin's Creed movie might meet the same fate. They might have been right.
Reviews of Assassin's Creed began popping up today from the usual suspects and they're not kind.
