Assassin’s Creed Unity has been heavily criticized by reviewers and gamers alike. These complaints and concerns have all centered on the gameplay itself. Recently, however, the game’s content has been called into question. Former French minister Jean-Luc Mélenchon has spoken out against Assassin’s Creed Unity, saying that the game distorts the truth behind the French Revolution. Head inside to see his complaints!

Xbox Boss Phil Spencer has taken to Twitter to celebrate the Xbox One and the PlayStation 4’s first year on the market.

The launch of Assassin's Creed Unity has been plagued by a myriad of glitches, and game crashes have been all too frequent. Ubisoft is working on ways to fix the various problems with the game, but in the meantime they have identified some of Unity's social features as being particularly buggy. Ubisoft is recommending that all Unity players delete all of their in-game contacts to increase the game's performance. Of course, that's a very inconvenient solution, given the game's social nature. Hopefully these issues are resolved soon.

Many analysts have stated that the incredibly lucrative Call of Duty franchise has peaked, and that its sales will likely begin to decline. That remains to be seen in the long term, but for now the popular shooter is still king.

Activision reports that Advance Warfare is the "biggest entertainment launch of the year," bringing in more money right out of the gate than any other video game (sorry, Destiny), movie, musical album, or book in 2014. Additionally, the Call of Duty franchise as a whole has now generated over $10 billion in sales worldwide, with CEO Bobby Kotick noting that this puts it above hit movies like the Hunger Games, Transformers, Iron Man, and Avengers all combined.

The holiday season is almost upon us, and that means big video game companies like Sony, Nintendo, and Microsoft are all out to prove they've got the best value. Sony has all the momentum on their side right now, but Nintendo is very confident in their holiday lineup and Microsoft is offering some great deals. With plenty of strong competition, Sony has put together a commercial showing off why they believe PlayStation 4 is "the best place to play this holiday." Check it out by clicking below!

According to EA Games, the Xbox One is getting closer and closer to the sales of its main competitor, Sony's PlayStation 4. The two consoles currently dominate the home console market, and have remained closely matched since their launches in November 2013.

Electronic Arts' chief financial officer Blake Jorgensen has said that "clearly Sony has jumped out to a lead with a great console and I think a great pricing strategy," but that the Xbox One will not be left in the dust. He believes that Christmas pricing strategies and consoles bundles will allow Microsoft to get back in the running.

The MMORPG juggernaut that is Destiny has some pretty cool graphics in-game, so it stands to reason that their actual cinematics would look even better. Proving this point is a new trailer for the game's upcoming expansion, known as "The Dark Below", that has been leaked online. To put it simply, it looks epic.

The expansion focuses on a long-forgotten enemy from below the surface of the Moon, and it will bring new story quests and missions, three new competitive multiplayer arenas, and a new Strike and Raid to the game.

Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate's reign atop the Japanese charts has ended. According to the latest Media Create charts, both the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 versions of Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare surpassed it, as did Pro Evolution Soccer 2015, knocking it all the way down to fourth.

Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker debuted at number seven and boosted Wii U sales by about 10,000 units, and Dengeki Bunko Fighting Climax produced a similar sales surge for Vita. New Nintendo 3DS was still the top-selling hardware, selling another 47,000 units over the past week. Hit the jump for the full breakdown!

Bloodborne, the upcoming PlayStation 4 exclusive from the developer of Demon's Souls and Dark Souls, sounds like it's going to have lots of dungeon-crawling goodness. According to a description on the Japanese website for the game, the dungeon-esque underground ruins in the game "change appearance depending on the person that sees them." It could just be a spooky line meant to establish them as mysterious and foreboding, but from a gameplay perspective that sounds like randomly-generated content. Hopefully this leads to lots of replay value for Bloodborne!
