Rayman Origins now available for free on Ubisoft Club!

Deals, Game

You can now grab a free copy of Rayman Origins for your PC here by logging into your Uplay account or creating a new account.

The free game is linked to a promotion marking the celebration of Ubisoft’s 30th anniversary that started in June. The first game available for free was Prince of Persia: Sands of Time, followed by Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell in July. A total of seven games are planned to be made free in this promotion which will last till December, each game being unveiled as we venture into a new month.

Originally released in 2011 for other console platforms, fans were really excited to finally witness Rayman Origin’s port to PC in 2012! Although it is an older game, you’ll be pleasantly surprised by this 2D platformer with gorgeous art style filled with many loveable characters. Did I mention it has local co-op features that support up to 4 players with split screen ability? Bring forth the mayhem!

Give it a shot and if it’s not your type of game, fret not as there will be 4 more freebies to enjoyed before the year end. I’m hoping it includes an Assassin Creed title to pacify the little ninja in me and perhaps to top it off, a Far Cry game to satisfy the adrenaline junkie side of me.

Note : Free games in this promotion are not trials, once added to your Uplay library, it will be yours to keep forever.

[Overwatch] Zenyatta POTGs

Game, Overwatch

POTG – Play of The Game*

Zenyatta is an extremely versatile support player in Overwatch. He has 4 different abilities and 1 ultimate :

[LMB] Fires single Orb (more accurate)
[Hold RMB] Orb Volley : Charges and fires up to 5 orbs in a straight line (decent accuracy and only requires 1 ammo in order to charge up)
[Shift] Orb of Harmony : Throw an orb that heals teammates (decent healing speed)
[E] Orb of Destruction : Throw an orb at an enemy, causing them to take 50% extra damage which is VERY effective when you use your primary ability to fire orbs.
[Q] The ultimate, Transcendence, is when Zenyatta enters into a state of heightened existence which makes him invulnerable and heals nearby enemies and saves them from certain ultimates of enemies. During which, he will not be able to use any abilities.

He is a great pick if you’re tired of the low damage rate dished out by other healers like Lucio and Mercy. However, the shortcomings of this hero is his small health pool of 200 (currently) and lacks escape ability.

To counter him, mobile heroes like Genji, Tracer or Reaper pose the greatest threat. While a well positioned Widowmaker, Reinhardt or Winston could turn the tide of a Zenyatta on fire. So hide well and send those orbs flying to both team and opponent!

In this POTG, it is important to use orbs of destruction on every enemy within your sights to deal great damage and always, if possible, aim for the head.

 

Also, use Zenyatta’s ultimate, Transcendence, carefully as it can save your whole team and make or break a game. In this POTG, I managed to counter Reaper’s deadly ultimate.

 

And..Zarya and Genji ultimate used in sync but Transcendence kept the whole team alive.

 

Used properly, playing as Zenyatta can be extremely rewarding and deadly towards the enemy, plus it is without a doubt absolutely fun to play as. Just be careful of those flanking characters!
