Cards Against Humanity Make Over $70,000 Selling Nothing

cards-against-humanityPeople spend money on a lot of things during Black Friday, but it appears people have no problem spending that money on absolutely nothing too.

Fans of the hugely successful and wonderfully offensive card game, Cards Against Humanity, paid $5 to the company in full knowing that they would be getting nothing in return. One “enthusiastic” person even gave the company $100!

Just How Big is Just Cause 3’s Map? Lets Find Out!

just_cause_3With only a few days until Just Cause 3’s release, many reviewers and personalities already have their hands on the title, and PlayStation Access give us a small idea just how big the game is as they travel the length of the map in a new 20 minute video.

The game takes place on the fictional islands of Medici, which is said to be a massive 400 square kilometres. Believe it or not, that’s actually not much bigger than the Just Cause 2 map, however reports suggest that the map is far denser, meaning there’s far more to check out.

Assassin’s Creed: Syndicate Review – PC Version

assassins creed: syndicateBelieve it or not, I’m actually a fan of the Assassin’s Creed series and have been so since the very first game, which was in no way amazing, but proved the concept was something worth looking into. I’ve played every game in the main series, bar the infamous Unity for obvious reasons which I doubt anyone can argue against me with. Assassin’s Creed 2 was almost exactly what I wanted to see from the series, and in my eyes the best. However my personal favourite is Black Flag, because it’s only Assassin’s Creed in name and a few plot points, instead opting to be the best Pirates of the Caribbean game ever made.

So you now know where I stand with the series before getting into this review. It’s clear that the yearly releases is putting an unnecessary strain on the series, but Ubisoft have serious amount of resources to get it done. I didn’t mind that they removed ship combat (the best addition to the series), because the setting didn’t require it, and I hoped they would put those additional resources to good use, with a competent story, strong characters and challenging gameplay. But I was disappointed.
