Ubisoft Done Bringing Mature Games To Wii U After Watch_Dogs

Posted by Streex on August 20, 2014 at 5:05 AM Comments comments (0)

It's the end of the road for Mature rated games on Wii U from Ubisoft. Just bring out Boyz II Men to sing their 1991 classic now, because after Watch_Dogs comes out this fall, that's it.

There are a ton here, most coming in the next several months, some we are already enjoying. While watching, I recommend grabbing a pen and pad and start making up that wish l...

In the art book for Hyrule Warriors, there is some concept art that shows off a female Link. As you can see below, there is very little difference between male and female Link besides hair length and apparel. Would Nintendo ever make a Zelda game with a female Link?

An incredibly brilliant actor, standup comedian, human being, and gamer. Robin Williams left us today at 63 years young, but no one is more heartbroken than his family and daughter Zelda, who he named after Zelda from The Legend of Zelda series. The man made us all laugh through countless movies and acts on stage, we are all at such a great loss. I personally first became amused with Robin watching him act as an oddball...
