This video, done by Youtube’s Mr.TVCow, showcases just about the cutest way to kill your enemies in Assassin’s Creed Unity. Ubisoft, I hope you’re taking notes here.
There was once a vote to see who should spar against one another. Those votes were tallied, and the results are in. At long last, the match determined by the users of the site, Drax versus Soterios!
I’m not used to making these types of videos, but the style is certainly one I could get used to. If you folks enjoyed this and want more staff versus staff matches (because Apple doesn’t already have plenty of series to work on) then feel free to suggest some future match ups in the comments.
Until then, keep your ideas coming, and we’ll be sure to take a stab at them!
November 22, 2014 marks the first birthday of the Xbox One platform. While most first birthdays are celebrated with letting a little human smash cake into its face in a high chair while adults laugh, Xbox One’s birthday is centering around giving back to the community that has helped it to prosper in its first year.

Telltale Games, the studio that has brought us episodic games from the worlds of The Walking Dead, Fables, and soon A Game of Thrones, is bringing us yet another series from one of our favorite universes: Borderlands.
Tales from the Borderlands takes place after Borderlands 2 and features a cast of (mostly) new characters. You play as Rhys and Fiona; one’s a Hyperion worker who has grand ambitions, and the other is a con artist. Guns, money, and psychotic levels of violence are sure to ensue.
There’s no official release date yet, but the game will be available of Xbox 360/One, Playstation 3/4, PC, Mac, and through Steam.
The Evil Within is the latest and most important chapter in the life of survival horror in recent years, with Shinji Mikami (Resident Evil creator) at the helm and promises of a return to “true” survival horror, things were looking very promising. Overall, The Evil Within delivered on those promises, but the game as a whole was held back by a few things.
Let’s look at the good first. The game is graphically beautiful, it’s displayed at a wider aspect ratio to give you a wider FOV and a more “cinematic” feel. Whilst it works well in those respects, the black bars on the top and bottom of the screen can take some getting used to – once you do, it feels completely natural and gives the game a small edge that others don’t have. There are times where you will come across wide spanning environments and they have done a fantastic job of making those looks gorgeous. The lighting really shines through when you see them – the lighting system also does a great job when the game is at it’s best… In the dark. One of the largest mistakes made by recent horror games is to set most of the game in a well-lit, usually outdoors environment. With a genre that relies so heavily on the environment to build fear and tension, it’s good to see that this factor has been taken well into account. I can guarantee that there are a lot of dark, creepy and uncomfortable environments, with an equally unsettling soundtrack.
Hey guys! Tyler reporting in to answer any and all of your questions about me!
I come from a tiny group of islands just off the coast of France, but I’m still British. I’m a big lover of Halo, heavy metal and the use of unnecessarily long words. I work in retail customer service and I’m also one of RUL’s Content Producers.
So go ahead, I’m waiting, and expecting some good questions from you – ask me (almost) anything!

After months of prior game nights, and over hundreds of hours poured into playing with friends and community members alike, it’s time to bring it back twice as hard with Halo: The Master Chief Collection.
Starting next week on November 17, 2014, players will have the chance to join in on ReadyUpLive’s first step back into its new weekly game night system. Unlike how you may remember Halo Mondays being hosted every Monday each week, we’re now switching to an every other Monday concept. This structure is to allow game nights to expand between two different titles other than just Halo each week.
As always, I’ll be your host with different co-hosts dropping in with each new week. We’ll be trying out all the gametypes the Master Chief Collection has to offer as there may or may not be any custom games until this point. Until then, we’ll just have to create our own “custom” games.
- Where: Halo: The Master Chief Collection
- Whom: Ye Olde Apple or Always Chewy on Xbox LIVE
- When: 6:30 P.M. – 9:00 P.M. CDT
Until next week, I’ll be dusting off my old armor and equip myself for the shenanigans and hilarity that’s ensured for the future. Cya’ back on the field, RULers!
