Assassin's Creed Unity

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ve likely heard about the devastating fire that broke out in the Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris recently. The exact cause of the fire remains a mystery at this point, but regardless it has left millions around the world stunned and heartbroken.

For those who are unaware, a full replica of this incredible cathedral was featured in Assassin’s Creed Unity, allowing players to get up close and personal with just about the entire thing. So, in light of the recent fire, Ubisoft is allowing all gamers to download the game entirely free for a limited time to “experience the majesty and beauty of the cathedral” on PC.

As for how long the game will remain free, the game’s free period began on April 17th at 10:00 am and will end on April 25th at 3:00 am (your local time). Just download it on PC through Uplay and it will be in your library forever.

To bring more awareness to this horrible event and to try and help out, Ubisoft will be donating to the restoration effort and also encourages others to do the same.

Assassin’s Creed Unity originally launched back in 2014, and brought a big shift to the series. It was the first game to have four-player co-op, though this feature didn’t work well and there were loads of technical issues that plagued it for a long time. However, in its current state the game is actually very solid and has a very enjoyable campaign.

Critics and fans alike went crazy for Amazon’s take on the famous role-playing game series Fallout. There were a lot of nominations for 16 Emmy awards, including Best Actor and Outstanding Drama Series. The show was able to reach audiences outside of gamers and got a lot of attention from the industry.

Eurogamer has been keeping track, and now that all the votes are in, Fallout is tied for fifth place with 23 nominations for the 76th Emmy Awards, which are put on by the US Academy of Television Arts & Sciences. With 25, The Bear has the most nominations, followed by True Detective: Night Country with 23, and Shogun with 19.

It shouldn’t be a surprise that Walton Goggins is up for Best Actor for his performance as The Ghoul. Although games will always be our first choice, it’s great that adaptations of games don’t have to be awful, and we can’t wait for the next season of the shows.

Are you surprised by how well Amazon’s version of Fallout has done in the mainstream? Is the curse of movies based on video games finally over? Leave a comment below and let us know.

Ten million people play The First Descendant in its first week

The free-to-play shooter The First Descendant has gotten a lot of attention in its first week. The game’s publisher, Nexon, says that 10 million people have already tried it out.

Insider Gaming pointed out that since there is no cost up front, it’s still too early to tell how many of those players will stick around, but it’s still a big number for a new IP. On Steam alone, it peaked at 264,860 concurrents right after launch and has still managed to break 200,000 in the last 24 hours, so it looks like a lot of people are still really into the game.

It was a “mindless and repetitive grind,” and we gave The First Descendant a 3/10 in our review. Of course, that’s just one opinion; other experts have had different ones. Most people, though, say that the game’s annoying free-to-play model is the worst thing about it.

Are you one of the millions of people who played The First Descendant last week? Are you going to come back for more? Leave a comment below and let us know.
