ubisoft

Got a little excited when Ubisoft started with Jerry Cantrell from Alice in Chains. And then Rocksmith 2014 started with voice commands. Somehow I have to start wondering if this was what everyone expected the Microsoft conference to be like. Kinect.

Aisha Tyler is back. With #girlwood. And claims that “Ubisoft is diving belly first, ass out into the next gen pool”.

So let’s start with Splinter Cell: Blacklist coming to current-gen consoles on 20 August.

And Rayman Legends follows a few days later on 30 August.

Both are introduced by means of new trailers, and we really could just enjoy them rather at our own pace on YouTube. Play the game dammit.

The Mighty Quest for Epic Loot wants you to “Steal from your neighbour. Protect your loot.”

South Park: The Stick of Truth is probably not sure if it will be out this year still.

And eventually it’s next-gen time.

The Crew looks like Ubisoft’s answer to Need for Speed Hot Pursuit. With a big open world. Or the US at least. And you get to take it over with your friends. The game arrives early 2014 and you can customise your cars on your tablet and use it in the game.

Watch Dogs. Still no gameplay footage shown, but more surprises from last year’s game of the show are promised over this year’s E3.

Just Dance 2014 has been announced. Same as every other year. Just. Dance.

Rabbids Invasion is an interactive TV show. And I really can’t be excited. It’s probably for kids not grown-ups.

“Core” gamers… it’s Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag. Pirates me hearties. And overly long trailers.

Almost missed the announcement of Trials Fusion (consoles and PC) and Trials Frontier (mobile game) due to sheer boredom of overlong trailers.

And just as Ubisoft looked to have lost it all this year, Massive Entertainment announces a new open world online RPG called Tom Clancy’s The Division. The game is coming to the PS4 and Xbox One. It looks as good as Watch Dogs did last year.

Looking at the sonference, Ubisoft stole the show at E3 last year, but this year they fell a little short. Kinda like all the gents that stood next to the giant known as Aisha Tyler…
