Assassin’s Creed fans are in for a treat with the release of two AC games this year: Assassin’s Creed Unity on new-gen consoles and Assassin’s Creed Rogue on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. Both games are out on the same day so fans with both new and last-gen consoles have some tough decisions ahead!
With Unity upping the ante with some stellar visuals, and take it from me- they are stellar, it would be easy to overlook Assassin’s CreedRogue on 360 and PS3.
It’s been a bumper year for FIFA fans. The last twelve months has seen the release of FIFA 14 on last-gen, FIFA 14 again- but this time on new-gen, and then 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil back on last-gen.
Last year’s graphical boost on PS4 and Xbox One came at a cost that upset many fans of the series.

It’s pretty shocking really. I’ve been playing video games for thirty years and yet the industry seems to have forgotten that I exist.
I can’t recall any video game in recent years where you get to play as a slightly over-weight forty-three year-old man, continuously hassled by his two small children and worried about the size of his prostate.

I’m back from an extended break part due to moving house, part due to getting wound-up by Telstra, and the rest down to having a break over Christmas. Things are getting back to normal, but first I’ve got to get something off my chest.
