What open-world games on PC need to learn from The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

Its lineage has cross-pollinated to almost every singleplayer open-world game, dotting their landscapes like acne in case, god forbid, I miss something. Yet the irony here is that Breath of the Wild treats its audience with a respect that few open-world games ever do these days. Breath of the Wild treats its audience with a respect that few open-world games ever do these days. To find them, I must observe the environment in a way I haven't done before in open-world games. Unfortunately, open-wor

Revisiting the renaissance with Assassin’s Creed 2

We’re introduced to Ezio Auditore da Firenze, the historical protagonist of Assassin’s Creed 2, the moment he’s born. When designing Assassin’s Creed 2, Ubisoft Montreal first looked at reviews of the original to determine which areas needed to be improved.

It was really tight.”Given this merciless schedule, it’s remarkable how well Assassin’s Creed 2 turned ou

The best controller for PC gaming

We've tested the DualShock 4, Xbox 360 controller, every official version of the Xbox One controller, and a few dedicated PC pads to pick our favorite. These are the best gamepads for PC, chosen for comfort, control, and how compatible they are with PC gaming. The software essentially tricks Windows into treating the DS4 like an Xbox 360 controller, so just about any game which supports an Xbox 360 controller (basically any game with controller support) should work with the default profile.
