Ubisoft @ E3 – My Thoughts

This is my thoughts on Ubisoft’s E3 press conference. This will not be a long full-length article on it, just a set of notes on what I saw during the press conference.

NOTES

  • Nintendo crossover, shocking how all the fanboys literally cheered for two grown men holding fake cartoonish guns
  • I like Shigeru Miyamoto, I really do, but the fan reaction was either way too much for way too little, or it was fake
  • Mario/Rabbids XCOM? I would play that if I had a Switch, without hesitation
  • I honestly have no interest in Assassin’s Creed anymore, to the point that even going to feudal Japan wouldn’t make me budge
  • What the hell does The Crew 2 have to do with the original game?!
  • I think half the audience is asleep after this Crew 2 showcase
  • SOUTH PARK FINALLY HAS A RELEASE DATE!!! (October 17th)
  • VR horror game? NOPE!!!
  • So they’re finally making a pirate game based on the good parts of Black Flag? Took them way too long
  • I’m mildly intrigued with Skull & Bones, my worry is that the ship combat could get extremely repetitive
  • Ugh…cue the cringeworthy Just Dance segment
  • I would really love to know how many people are still buying these games that warrant Ubisoft doing this every year
  • I love South Park, not enough to spend money on a mobile game
  • Starlink, aka spend tons of money on plastic shit
  • You know this crowd is fake when they’re cheering for a game nobody bought and played (Steep)
  • The idea of Steep being a way to play an Olympics game is a cool idea, I will admit
  • I have not been interested in Far Cry lately…I’m really interested in Far Cry 5
  • Death by farm vehicles!
  • It’s finally here…Beyond Good & Evil 2, it’s not what we thought it would be, but it looked fantastic anyway

THE GOOD

  • Mario/Rabbids being a silly XCOM game sounds unbelievably fun
  • South Park is finally coming!
  • Skull & Bones is a curious one
  • Far Cry 5 has got my attention after a few games in a row doing nothing
  • Beyond Good & Evil 2…need I say more?

THE BAD

  • Fake crowd throughout the entire event
  • Assassin’s Creed is over. I’m sorry, but I’m done with it
  • The Crew 2 was the most poorly advertised showcase of a game I may have ever seen at an E3 event
  • Just Dance’s yearly segment
  • South Park’s money grabbing mobile game
  • Starlink’s money grabbing plastic shit game
  • Steep while it’s a cool Olympic DLC, the game’s dead

OVERALL SCORE: 3/5
