Far Cry 3 is a fine case study in the highs and lows of Ubification.
Is Far Cry 5 good? I think so. The problem with Ubisoft games is you can’t tell anymore, they’re all the same.
It’s understandable when a sequel iterates on its predecessor, but Ubisoft is one publisher with MANY franchises all building off each other.
It’s making it hard to care, or at the very least view these games as anything other than fluff.

It’s time to visit Hope County and do… pretty much the same thing you do in pretty much every “AAA” Ubisoft game.
Once again the “AAA” industry thinks it has a golden goose, and once again it’s primed to bang that goose until the eggs come out filled with nothing but decaying spunk.
This is the year loot boxes came to gaming in a big way.
Encouraged by Overwatch, “AAA” publishers went all-in on destroying their games in the name of easy money.
And no, Blizzard, you’re not special. You deserve as much blame as EA, Activision, Ubisoft, 2K Games, WB, and Microsoft.
In fact, j’accuse!
Come with me to Egypt so we can stab up some dudes and grab LOOT LOOT LOOT!
S’pretty good, all things considered.
This week’s episode is brought to you by Sterdust, a totally original wrestling persona that WE OWN. We OWN it, WWE!
Anyway, in an industry of liars, even the good guys lie, and those lies can be good lies.
But what happens when lies become so commonplace and acceptable? Then the bad guys lie… and they can’t understand why they’re not the good guys.
Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle is one of those game concepts that on paper simply should not work. Rabbids are essentially the late 2000’s equivalent of the Minions – screeching, vulgar, nondescript vehicles for fast-paced slapstick aimed at children. Mario is one of the most iconic video game characters of all time, who goes on focused and goal-oriented quests to save the world.
Neither use guns.
Putting both into a turn based strategy RPG shooter setting together simply doesn’t sound like a good idea on paper.
The Jimquisition names its inaugural Winners & Losers of E3!
What killed? What died? We celebrate and jeer what Xbox, PlayStation, Nintendo, Bethesda, Electronic Arts, and Ubisoft had to offer.
Oh no, The Jimquisition is making itself a smarmy point again.
Sick and tired of Nintendo’s repeated attempts to steal from him, your old pal Jim Sterling explains why it’s perfectly morally fine to rob the company blind.
