  1. Ubisoft has been giving away free games every month for the last quarter of 2016 to celebrate their 30th anniversary and they just kicked off their finale. Beginning last Thursday, Ubisoft began celebrating the end of the year with a promise to give away something free to people with an Ubisoft account every day until December 23. That's 30 days of free stuff! Of course, now the question becomes if the free stuff on offer is interesting. The deal began last week, so some of the mystery has been unraveled. The first day giveaway is a copy of the original Rayman on mobile devices and can still be downloaded. The second day Ubisoft redirected to their Black Friday store deals. The third, fourth, and fifth days revealed less exciting free things: E3 poster downloads, a GIF for the Ubisoft anniversary, and For Honor GIFs, respectively. Those rewards might not seem terribly exciting, but I'd be willing to be better giveaways are in store going forward - besides, the giveaways are free! You can head over to the Ubisoft Holiday Calendar to sign in or create an Ubisoft account and keep track of all the free goodies for yourself. Don't forget to also check in to see what game they are giving away for the month of December, which has yet to be announced, and snag November's free title, Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon.

  3. Are you ready to wake the dragon? Ubisoft will be releasing free copies of Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon starting tomorrow (and if you get into the service soon enough today you might still be able to pick up a copy of this month's game, Beyond Good & Evil). The studio has been releasing free games through its Ubisoft Club for the past few months. If you haven't heard of Ubisoft Club, it's a free service that rewards people who play Ubisoft's games. This includes games that were purchased used or digitally. The service offers some exclusive rewards and discounts in the Uplay Shop. The service presents challenges, badges, Club XP, and more. To obtain copies of Ubisoft's free game giveaways, which will continue at least through December, gamers need to sign up for the Ubisoft Club. The downside seems to be that it is really hard to unjoin the club short of deleting your Ubisoft account and then reaching out to customer support.

  5. Pokémon Uranium, released last week by fans who had worked on it for almost a decade, is no longer available on its official website. More than 1.5 million downloads occurred in the handful of days it was officially linked on the website. The non-profit game was free for all, the developers wishing to merely share their game with the world. On Saturday, Nintendo's lawyers came calling at the Pokémon Uranium website with several take down notices to end the site's distribution of their game. The game developers quickly took down their links, but will continue to update the title, maintain its online features for those who downloaded a copy, and maintain their website. Despite the game being subject to take down, the developers seem to be very happy with how Uranium has been received so far. That being said, the developers take pains to distance themselves from those who might have reuploaded Pokémon Uranium to file hosting sites to continue distribution. After all, they have no control over those individuals and they can't guarantee the safety of any download links from those sites. You can read their full statement below: After receiving more than 1,500,000 downloads of our game, we have been notified of multiple takedown notices from lawyers representing Nintendo of America. While we have not personally been contacted, it’s clear what their wishes are, and we respect those wishes deeply. Therefore, we will no longer provide official download links for the game through our website. We have no connection to fans who reupload the game files to their own hosts, and we cannot verify that those download links are all legitimate. We advise you to be extremely cautious about downloading the game from unofficial sources. We are blown away by the response this game has received, and we thank you all so much for your outstanding support. We will continue to provide Pokémon Uranium-related news and updates through our official channels. You are welcome to continue discussing and sharing content related to the game on our forums and Discord, where there is a very active community. Thank you for reading, and let’s share the love of Pokémon! This is merely the most recent take down of content Nintendo of America has deemed harmful to their efforts to protect their copyright. A Metroid II fan remake and an archive of out of print Nintendo Power magazines were taken down last week. Copyright law requires those who hold copyrights to stringently police any content that might infringe, even free, fan-made tribute games, in order to properly defend against larger for profit infringement.

  13. Late last Friday, 343's Bonnie Ross released a community update on the Halo Waypoint blog to give a big thank you for the support that Halo: The Master Chief Collection has received from the community. This comes after the title has endured months of multiplayer issues that have ranged from rendering it unplayable for weeks to the downright buggy. More important than the apology, which is nice, but considered to be almost a formality at this point, is the promise that Ross made to support those who bought the game prior to December 19th. Customers who fall into that category can expect to get the following for free: One month of Xbox Live Gold Exclusive In-Game Nameplate Exclusive In-Game Avatar The Halo 3: ODST campaign, which is still in development. The finished product should run at a 1080p resolution and 60fps. People who buy after December 19 will have to purchase this separately. Regardless of purchase date, Bonnie Ross also stated that the fan favorite Relic map from Halo 2: Anniversary will be added to Halo: The Master Chief Collection. Players can expect that the newly remastered version will hold a few tweaks and performance upgrades. Ross ended her statement by apologizing for the problems that have plagued the release for the last month and firmly committed 343 to the happiness of their customers. "The satisfaction and joy of our fans is absolutely critical to everyone at 343 Industries," she said, "we regret the issues and the frustration you have endured. We are truly sorry and thank you for your continued patience and support of the Halo franchise." View full article
