There’s been a lot of talk in recent days about the financial viability of game journalism – every day, more and more journalists are turning to Patreon as an alternative means of funding. This has inevitably led to cries that the system is broken. Well known figures such as Brendan Keogh or Leigh Alexander have said that “good” journalists aren’t earning a decent living, and that more must be done to fix this.

The issue is that the game doesn’t feature any female assassins, but the rest of the gaming media have unhelpfully put a misleading spin on the story (and Ubisoft’s mixed messaging doesn’t exactly help). Here’s why Ubisoft aren’t sexist, and why it makes perfect sense for AC Unity to only have male assassins.
After Microsoft’s competent but predictable showing, denizens of the gaming sphere were waiting with baited breath to see how Sony would respond. Did their slate of explosive blockbusters manage to counter Microsoft’s stable of sequels? Not quite. Here’s what went down at Sony’s E3 press conference.
Nintendo were fully aware that this E3 was their opportunity to redeem themselves, save the Wii U and restore themselves to their former glory. And boy did they deliver. Here’s what went down at Nintendo’s 2014 E3 conference.
