Dev Says Child of Light Profitable Enough for a Sequel

Ubisoft Montreal’s digital-only role-playing game Child of Light is “profitable enough” to continue the series, Far Cry 3 creative director Patrick Plourde revealed when speaking at the GameON: Finance conference in Toronto, according to GamesIndustry.biz. “It’s not as profitable as Assassin’s Creed is profitable, but it’s profitable enough that we would have been able to fund a sequel,” Plourde said, adding that the game’s budget was reportedly around “a couple of million” dollars. Child of Light was a chance at creative freedom for the developer as Plourde was hesitant to continue AAA development at Ubisoft. Continue reading… Source: IGN Xbox One Original post. Read More »

Alien: Isolation is the Bravest Game of 2014

There’s a moment in Ridley Scott’s 1979 sci-fi classic Alien where Ellen Ripley screams out “you BITCH!” before slamming her flamethrower down onto a computer monitor in frustration. It’s the first ‘bitch’ she utters in the Alien series, although certainly not the most iconic; that award goes to the ultra slick, James Cameron-penned line from 1986’s much more bombastic Aliens. It does, however, encapsulate the sort of explosive fear and exasperation both Ripley and the audience are feeling after 90 odd minutes of a brutal game of cat and mouse. It is a predictable response from Ripley considering her circumstances. It is also a predictable response to have while playing Alien: Isolation, the Creative Assembly-created horror game that serves as a bridge between the two films, but is firmly set in Scott’s world; the tense, taut and extremely unforgiving one.
