Remember when you were a kid and would argue over who would win in a fight between Batman and Superman or cowboys and ninjas? Ubisoft’s latest game asks you a similar question: knights, vikings, or samurai? For Honor was on my most anticipated list for 2017 and after almost 20 hours of play, the hype was real. It’s a simple to learn, hard to master fighting game with some downright brutal combat.
I have great memories of playing snowboarding games like 1080 Snowboarding and SSX Tricky until the sun came up. Steep has been on my radar for a bit and Ubisoft had an open beta this past weekend just ahead of the December 2 release date. If you’re on the fence or just looking for some info during this packed holiday release season, look no further.
For the second game in my “taking a break from huge titles” series, I dove into Grow Home, a small game by Ubisoft. It’s weird to see a game like this by such a huge company. Two hours after buying it, I completed it. The verdict? A neat game with some cool mechanics if you can get it cheap.
