OXCGN’s Anno Online Closed Beta Preview
Conquering the social frontier?
by Alex Hilton

The Age of Colonisation is an age of trade, exploration and settling on new and unknown islands.
Anno Online captures this essence and presents you with a browser-based massively multiplayer online (MMO) game that allows you to establish your own civilisation from its very roots.
OXCGN was given the opportunity to ‘explore’ the closed beta of the game as the developer, Ubisoft Blue Byte, puts on the finishing touches.
I had one question going in: will it be the same traditional Anno game in a new format, or something completely different?

OXCGN’s Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon Review
The definition of insanity
by Daniel Geikowski

Every so often, there is a game that seemingly emerges out of nowhere to take people by surprise.
A game so absurd, so ridiculous, that people can’t help but be intrigued.
Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon is about as absurd a game as we’ll see this year.
Developed by Ubisoft, Blood Dragon is an FPS that aims not to tell an engaging story, but instead tries to bombard you with many an 80′s reference in order to produce a hilarious, somewhat nostalgic experience, which quite frankly ends up bordering on the insane.
Is this blood worth shedding?

As the gaming world anxiously awaits the unveiling of the final next-gen competitor, rumored under the name of Xbox Infinity, Sony has slowly been slipping out more and more details regarding their next system.
Recently, more information about the DualShock 4 controller and additional system specifications have slowly made their way around the web.
However, they’ve been rather quiet on the release date.
By no means is this official, but if we piece together a few scattered bits of information, we just may be very close to finding out when the PS4 will release.
Thank Ubisoft for this one.
Could this be the date?

Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon Kicks Ass and Chews Bubblegum: OXCGN Preview
If it bleeds, you can definitely kill it

What do you get when a development team decide to stay in on a Saturday night, get drunk and watch a dozen 80′s and 90′s B-Grade action flicks? Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon. Or, at least that’s how I’m hoping the idea was formulated by the geniuses at Ubisoft Montreal.
What started out as an April Fools joke (hich everyone believed it to be) quickly turned into something real when days after the 1st of April screenshots were being leaked online.
Fast forward to now and Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon has finally been unveiled with a launch trailer encapsulating the era of VHS in the 90′s. From corny commercial to animation, it reminds me of Heavy Metal.
How bloody is this dragon?
