With reviews for Assassin’s Creed: Unity being held until 12-hours after the game’s launch the topic of embargoes has once again become a point of heated debate, sparking articles and massive forum threads. So let’s jump in shall we? Because if everyone else is yelling their opinions about […]
Note: this was written on 11/11/14, the exact date of Skyrim’s birthday, but obviously publishing was delayed a few days.
