Ubisoft Makes One of its Best Games Free for Everybody –

Ubisoft has made one of its best games free for everybody. In 2020, PlayStation, Xbox, and many others gave away several free games to encourage gamers to stay home during the pandemic and to give them something to take their mind off the pandemic. In 2021, this hasn’t continued. While some are still giving away free games, most have stopped the practice. In the former camp though is Ubisoft, whom has consistently given free games away all year.

More specifically, Ubisoft has made Rayman Origins on Ubisoft Connect PC free for everybody, no strings attached. Unfortunately, if you’re on console — whether Nintendo Switch, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series S, or Xbox Series X — you’re out of luck. Meanwhile, if you exclusively use Steam or the Epic Games Store, you’re also out of luck. This is a PC code, but it’s limited to Ubisoft Connect. Lastly, it’s important to note this is a limited-time offer, only available until December 22. After this window of time, the game will return to its normal price point.

As for the game itself, Rayman Origins, debuted back in 2011 via Ubisoft and Michael Ancel. And as you may remember, it was widely considered one of the best games of the year it released, garnering a Metacritic score of 97 to 92, depending on the platform.

“Play Rayman Origins and discover or rediscover the magical universe and legendary 2D gameplay that captured the hearts of millions of fans… When the Glade of Dreams is overrun by ‘nefurrious’ Darktoons, the Fairy Council hastily invokes Rayman to save the day; but the hero of light isn’t quite all there…To help him, Rayman teams up with his best friend, Globox, and two crafty wizards, the Teensies,” reads an official blurb about the game. “Together, the world’s most hilarious team of heroes will need to restore peace to the Glade, or watch as their beloved home vanishes like a bad dream…”

Spongebob Squarepants: The Cosmic Shake: health upgrade locations – Digital Trends

Spongebob Squarepants: The Cosmic Shake has a handful of tricky segments throughout its surprisingly lengthy campaign, but it isn’t a game that most would deem to be overwhelmingly challenging. As such, the titular hero’s four underpants – the game’s version of hit points – are usually plenty to get most players through the adventure, especially considering how frequent health refills are across levels. But if you’re looking to add some additional pairs of underoos to your health pool, you won’t want to miss the game’s couple of hidden health upgrades (golden underpants). Read on to find out where to get them.

Phil Spencer says ‘2022 was too light on games’ – PC Gamer

In 2021, Microsoft’s gaming division published games like Forza Horizon 5, Halo Infinite, Age of Empires 4, and Psychonauts 2. It was declared Metacritic’s publisher of the year (opens in new tab) thanks to its games receiving an average metascore of 87.4, helped also to the Xbox Series X port of Microsoft Flight Simulator releasing that year. While in 2022 Microsoft backed some well-received smaller games—Grounded, Pentiment, and As Dusk Falls—its biggest releases, Starfield and Redfall, were delayed into this year.

Xbox stans weren’t happy about this, though I think maybe we could do with less rushed videogame releases and maybe less videogames overall. During a recent inter…….
