[E3 2013] Gamer UK Liveblog: Ubisoft Conference

UBISOFT CONFERENCE TIME.

Here we are the middle point of the E3 conference extravaganza- Ubisoft! We will continue our liveblog process, so far we are still alive and blogging, but I imagine by the time Sony rolls around we may be getting a little tired and irate.

So what do we expect to see? Rayman? Splinter Cell? a new Prince of Persia? Who knows, to find out join us at 11PM as we continue our chat!

To get in contact, comment below or send us a tweet @gameruktweets!

Curt June 10, 201311:31 pm

Let’s get that sony page up and running!

Tom June 10, 201311:28 pm

Bring on Sony!!!

Tom June 10, 201311:28 pm

…ugh 2AM

Tom June 10, 201311:27 pm

Aye, on that note we will see you all in one hour and 30 minutes!

Alex Bullock June 10, 201311:27 pm

@patlike: Just have very strong hint from senior Sony dev that PS4 is cheaper than Xbox One.

Alex Bullock June 10, 201311:26 pm

We’ll also find out soon if Sony have landed the first punch in the console wars.

Join us at the unholy hour of 2am.

Tom June 10, 201311:25 pm

We will find out soon if this “genre” works

Tom June 10, 201311:24 pm

WE haven’t played Watch Dogs yet

Tom June 10, 201311:24 pm

Ubisoft seem to found a niche for themselves and from the outside looks good

Alex Bullock June 10, 201311:23 pm

@RichStanton: I dig the fact they try to make games about the world, rather than just a mythical Middle East full of terrorists.

Tom June 10, 201311:23 pm

That is true.

Tom June 10, 201311:22 pm

Also with the focus on Next gen, Stick of Truth doesn’t really fit in

Alex Bullock June 10, 201311:22 pm

But to be fair to Ubi they do at least consistently invest in and promote new IPs.

Tom June 10, 201311:21 pm

No, I would have preferred more of that than alot of the other stuff

Alex Bullock June 10, 201311:21 pm

As GT are commenting on now, a shame we didn’t see more Stick of Truth.

Alex Bullock June 10, 201311:20 pm

That was almost exactly to type. The trailers we expected, very little new, one classic non-game fuckup with Rabbids.

Tom June 10, 201311:20 pm

Curse you E3 for forcing me to watching constant streams.

Tom June 10, 201311:19 pm

Need to have a brew. If this was any other night I wouldn’t even be tired!

Curt June 10, 201311:19 pm

I’m going to make some noodles. I’m dying here, I definitely have a couple hours left in me.

Tom June 10, 201311:18 pm

Destiny is the reason to stay awake

Curt June 10, 201311:18 pm

They are both on there.

Tom June 10, 201311:18 pm

Only that last 15 minutes was worth anything

Curt June 10, 201311:18 pm

So The Division could be half decent, i’d like to see how it stands up against Destiny on the PS4.

Curt June 10, 201311:17 pm

So that’s it for Ubisoft, they claim that it’s been a good afternoon. I say it’s been a relatively decent night.

Alex Bullock June 10, 201311:17 pm

I wish I could do that shit

Tom June 10, 201311:17 pm

What is with games conferences trying to scare the audience?

Tom June 10, 201311:16 pm

Oh, not what i expected. Looks very good!

Alex Bullock June 10, 201311:16 pm

I wasn’t overly inspired by that, but we need to see how it works as an MMO. And it’s a Clancy adaptation

Curt June 10, 201311:16 pm

I was wondering about Tom Clancy, not that I said it.

Curt June 10, 201311:16 pm

So it’s called “The Division” a Tom Clancy Game.

Alex Bullock June 10, 201311:16 pm

No I think it’s just a flu type thing, it was talking about scarcity of resources, people fighting each other

Curt June 10, 201311:15 pm

Manhattan confirmed for city.

Curt June 10, 201311:15 pm

Or just clip through.

Tom June 10, 201311:15 pm

Just occurred to me this was about an infection… Zombie game?

Alex Bullock June 10, 201311:15 pm

I wanted him to run into the swinging light fixture just to see if it’d affect the character or bounce off his head

Curt June 10, 201311:14 pm

I’d like to see how these situations play out with 1000 players doing the same thing as opposed to 4 players.

Alex Bullock June 10, 201311:13 pm

Remote control bombs! Weapons don’t seem to have much punch and it looks totally linear. Me being unduly harsh

Curt June 10, 201311:13 pm

So it;s level-based, we’re seeing experience being gained.

Alex Bullock June 10, 201311:12 pm

I can’t see it doing a Colonial Marines

Curt June 10, 201311:12 pm

I’m assuming these are the characters speaking. Not the players.

Tom June 10, 201311:12 pm

I don’t believe this game will look this good on release at all

Tom June 10, 201311:11 pm

The game has dogs, Call of Duty Ghosts is fucked.

Curt June 10, 201311:11 pm

We’re making our way down a city street, and it’s snowing.

Tom June 10, 201311:11 pm

PS4 Confirmed

Curt June 10, 201311:10 pm

The game looks gorgeous.

Tom June 10, 201311:10 pm

Could it be a film franchise? Christmas related…Die Hard?

Curt June 10, 201311:10 pm

I’m just gonna watch this.

Alex Bullock June 10, 201311:09 pm

It could legit be Far Cry 4, although I would be fucking amazed

Tom June 10, 201311:09 pm

VIVA PINATA 3!

Tom June 10, 201311:09 pm

The SIms 4

Curt June 10, 201311:09 pm

Petz!

Curt June 10, 201311:09 pm

It could well be, it’s an existing franchise.

Alex Bullock June 10, 201311:09 pm

can’t be, not the right genre

Alex Bullock June 10, 201311:08 pm

Is in a World in Conflict sequel??

Alex Bullock June 10, 201311:08 pm

MASSIVE

Curt June 10, 201311:08 pm

So the game is definitely called Dark Winter.

Tom June 10, 201311:07 pm

Good logic, but I cant remember the last time I payed with anything other than my card.

Curt June 10, 201311:07 pm

We haven’t really been given an idea what this might be just yet.

Alex Bullock June 10, 201311:06 pm

Now this really reminds me of the Watch Dogs reveal. Can they one-up that? Surely not

Tom June 10, 201311:06 pm

Ha has Said Dark Winter a few times.

Curt June 10, 201311:05 pm

Can the world handle all these MMOs?

Alex Bullock June 10, 201311:05 pm

I think the initial bit about bioterrorism ruled out Sims

Curt June 10, 201311:05 pm

Oh good, it’s not Sims.

Alex Bullock June 10, 201311:05 pm

This sounds like a Resi voiceover. It’s not, but I can dream.

Tom June 10, 201311:05 pm

What is this?

Curt June 10, 201311:05 pm

Maxim MMO. NO. NO.

Curt June 10, 201311:04 pm

UBISOFT MMO!

Alex Bullock June 10, 201311:04 pm

open world RPG from…

Curt June 10, 201311:04 pm

OH dear.

Curt June 10, 201311:04 pm

There’s a metagame between the two.

Alex Bullock June 10, 201311:04 pm

Throw us a bone Yvres

Alex Bullock June 10, 201311:03 pm

Oh, this says special reveal

Tom June 10, 201311:03 pm

Everyone loves Trails

Tom June 10, 201311:03 pm

Trails Frontier for Mobile

Alex Bullock June 10, 201311:03 pm

Fusion on everything except Wii U, and Frontier for mobile, with cross play.

Curt June 10, 201311:02 pm

Two new trials games!

Curt June 10, 201311:02 pm

YES PLEASE!

Alex Bullock June 10, 201311:02 pm

Trials Fusion, this is new right?

Curt June 10, 201311:02 pm

A new trials game!

Curt June 10, 201311:01 pm

Am I the only person that doesn’t count in-engine as “gameplay”?

Alex Bullock June 10, 201311:01 pm

We didn’t see any AC gameplay then. Can’t comment yet.

Tom June 10, 201311:01 pm

THey are also streaming this directly off the screen. Someone just fucking fade to the input and let us see it better.

Curt June 10, 201311:00 pm

Ubisoft are really pushing Uplay, i’ve never found it to be anything special.

Alex Bullock June 10, 201311:00 pm

Sweet music, though.

Curt June 10, 201311:00 pm

We’re seeing this on UPlay, that can’t be good.

Tom June 10, 201310:59 pm

A real pirate’s Parrot, with details down to the scars on its beak.

Curt June 10, 201310:59 pm

Wahey gameplay!

Curt June 10, 201310:59 pm

Seems that this one may well be a lot more open world.

Alex Bullock June 10, 201310:59 pm

Is it modelled on a real parrot?

Tom June 10, 201310:59 pm

Just show the game.

Alex Bullock June 10, 201310:58 pm

@RichStanton: “Parrots make very one excited. Symbols of freedom, rebellion and adventure.”

Curt June 10, 201310:57 pm

“Naval battles” The ability to control your ship?

Tom June 10, 201310:56 pm

Different guy same love for white hoods.

Curt June 10, 201310:56 pm

It’s a nice enough trailer.

Alex Bullock June 10, 201310:56 pm

or rather, they’ve made it a random guy using the Animus, so they can change setting whenever they like

Alex Bullock June 10, 201310:56 pm

It is a totally new storyline, they’ve basically done away with the Animus conceit

Alex Bullock June 10, 201310:55 pm

I hope this protagonist is more likeable, because he doesn’t look it

Curt June 10, 201310:55 pm

Maybe a completely new storyline, this new guy doesn’t look like Desmond at all.

Tom June 10, 201310:54 pm

Still a better trailer than Halo 5

Alex Bullock June 10, 201310:54 pm

There was more maiming

Curt June 10, 201310:54 pm

A new CG trailer for Assassin’s Creed Black Flag. Nothing to do with Henry Rollins, unfortunately.

Alex Bullock June 10, 201310:54 pm

Okay less so now

Tom June 10, 201310:53 pm

New trailer you say?

Alex Bullock June 10, 201310:53 pm

This reminds me of that bit in Tangled

Curt June 10, 201310:53 pm

Oh we’re going to see Assassin’s Creed.

Alex Bullock June 10, 201310:52 pm

Two hour presentation, second half is entirely Petz gameplay

Tom June 10, 201310:52 pm

That farm kinda reminds me of Viva Piñata.

Alex Bullock June 10, 201310:52 pm

@lucyjamesgames: Insufferable children demoing a game! Everybody drink

Curt June 10, 201310:52 pm

They have 5 minutes to show us something we haven’t already seen.

Alex Bullock June 10, 201310:51 pm

Something about screaming with your children instead of at them sounds really disturbing

Tom June 10, 201310:51 pm

Who remembers last years Ubisoft briefing? That was good.

Alex Bullock June 10, 201310:51 pm

I should have seen this coming. Why didn’t we see this coming

Curt June 10, 201310:51 pm

So you affect the show only for your own viewing. Not very interesting.

Tom June 10, 201310:51 pm

Oh dear..

Tom June 10, 201310:50 pm

WHO SAID IT !?

Curt June 10, 201310:50 pm

So yes, it looks like it might be Xbox One exclusive.

Alex Bullock June 10, 201310:50 pm

Microsoft got away with this, they’ve palmed the TV stuff they promised to keep away off to a publisher conference

Tom June 10, 201310:50 pm

Wore his best flowery shirt for the conference

Curt June 10, 201310:50 pm

“Run you foooool!”

Tom June 10, 201310:49 pm

And we are!

Tom June 10, 201310:49 pm

Hopefully we will find out!

Curt June 10, 201310:49 pm

Oh they’ll tell us right now.

Curt June 10, 201310:49 pm

No idea of how the players will affect the show however.

Tom June 10, 201310:48 pm

I can see this working through Xbox One

Curt June 10, 201310:48 pm

I would happily watch thousands of players run around a screen and try to make a storyline.

Alex Bullock June 10, 201310:48 pm

Again, I like the Rabbids games. I prefer this idea to Skylanders.

Curt June 10, 201310:48 pm

Please tell me this will be a crowd game.

Curt June 10, 201310:47 pm

So you can play the TV show.

Alex Bullock June 10, 201310:47 pm

A Rabbids TV show which you can play. Not a tie in, an interactive show. Whatemahogkjajfks

Curt June 10, 201310:47 pm

TV show?

Curt June 10, 201310:47 pm

We’re going to see a Raving Rabbids movie?

Tom June 10, 201310:46 pm

Probably Dance Central, acutally a fun game.

Alex Bullock June 10, 201310:46 pm

I did know that, yes. Don’t patronise me

Alex Bullock June 10, 201310:46 pm

Or was that Dance Central? Just shoot me now, really

Curt June 10, 201310:46 pm

So you can cross-fade with the Kinect Sensor, sounds good to be fair.

Alex Bullock June 10, 201310:46 pm

I’ll actually hold my hands up and say I enjoyed the one time I played Just Dance on Kinect. With the upgraded camera it could be pretty good.

Curt June 10, 201310:45 pm

6 Player dances, who the fuck has room for that?

Curt June 10, 201310:45 pm

I’m with you on that.

Alex Bullock June 10, 201310:45 pm

ONE DIRECTION okay I’m sold

Curt June 10, 201310:45 pm

Just Dance. Nobody cares.

Alex Bullock June 10, 201310:44 pm

Just Dance 2014. Laugh it up Aisha, laugh it up.

Curt June 10, 201310:44 pm

If you say so Mr. Gay.

Curt June 10, 201310:44 pm

“Plenty more surprises”

Curt June 10, 201310:43 pm

Will we see more gameplay after this, I certainly haven’t been blown away by Ubisoft so far.

Curt June 10, 201310:43 pm

The trailer looks damn good, i’ll say that.

Alex Bullock June 10, 201310:42 pm

Although this bit is obviously pre-rendered

Tom June 10, 201310:42 pm

CG trailer that leaked previously

Alex Bullock June 10, 201310:41 pm

It looks really good for a game that started development on the last gen

Alex Bullock June 10, 201310:41 pm

I am physically connected to both of you

Curt June 10, 201310:40 pm

It’s based across the whole of Chicago, did we know that already?

Curt June 10, 201310:40 pm

We’re hearing more about how we’re all connected.

Alex Bullock June 10, 201310:39 pm

Watch Dogs to be presented by man with funny name

Alex Bullock June 10, 201310:39 pm

I wouldn’t go that far, how often are racing games considered must buy?

Curt June 10, 201310:39 pm

You can build your cars on the iPad and play them ingame.

Curt June 10, 201310:38 pm

But wait, here comes another group of 4 players who want to take their prize.

Tom June 10, 201310:38 pm

If a launch title, it could down as one of the classic launch titles.

Curt June 10, 201310:38 pm

I’m sure we’ll find out right now.

Tom June 10, 201310:38 pm

It looks good, the jump from offroad to onroad is a very good idea, along with destruction.

Alex Bullock June 10, 201310:37 pm

It looks really slick though. Is this a launch title?

Curt June 10, 201310:37 pm

You start a team of drivers with your friends and jack trucks to make money, then you expand across the US and take over.

Curt June 10, 201310:37 pm

Long story short, it’s a game for people that want to be in Fast & Furious.

Alex Bullock June 10, 201310:36 pm

This just looks like the NFS game again

Alex Bullock June 10, 201310:36 pm

I thought we were over this Tom

Curt June 10, 201310:36 pm

So they’re all crashing a big van.

Tom June 10, 201310:35 pm

That grass looks like Viva Piñata grass.

Curt June 10, 201310:35 pm

It’s a shame. Here goes the 4 player co-op Takedown mission.

Alex Bullock June 10, 201310:35 pm

Apart from the bit where it is

Tom June 10, 201310:34 pm

This game isnt a Transformers game just to make that clear!

Curt June 10, 201310:34 pm

So you can rip the car to shreds and build it up from scratch.

Curt June 10, 201310:34 pm

You can’t hit and kill pedestrians, they dive out of the way á la Driver.

Tom June 10, 201310:34 pm

They are getting the Autobots together!

Curt June 10, 201310:33 pm

Tom called it, that’s what we’re expecting now, it’s actually a Transformers game.

Alex Bullock June 10, 201310:33 pm

Elder Scrolls in a car, they should put that on the box. If it has a box. CURSE YOU DIGITAL ERA

Tom June 10, 201310:32 pm

If he transformed into an Autobot now you would have an awesome Transformers game.

Curt June 10, 201310:32 pm

Think Elder Scrolls in a car.

Alex Bullock June 10, 201310:32 pm

@supererogatory: I’ve mentioned this a few times prior: The Crew is the spiritual successor to Test Drive Unlimited 1, from the developers of that game.

Curt June 10, 201310:32 pm

Yeah we’re seeing it go to Oklahoma, the second player is driving over hills and through forests.

Alex Bullock June 10, 201310:31 pm

Nitrous is so 2005

Curt June 10, 201310:31 pm

Starting in NYC.

Curt June 10, 201310:30 pm

And we’re gonna see gameplay.

Tom June 10, 201310:30 pm

Why do I expect to select a state from the menu, then just one city.

Alex Bullock June 10, 201310:30 pm

Co-op everything in a persistent online world. Mix of AI and real players everywhere. Very Forza from earlier

Curt June 10, 201310:29 pm

We’ll see.

Curt June 10, 201310:29 pm

So yes, it’s an open world game – Based in the whole of the USA.

Alex Bullock June 10, 201310:28 pm

@DanDawkins: Yves Guillemot being queued up for punchlines by presenters is like watching Diana Ross take a penalty

Tom June 10, 201310:28 pm

Seems very Burnout Paradise but MMO style.

Curt June 10, 201310:28 pm

Well this has definitely piqued my interest. Think Fast & Furious storyline maybe? About jacking trucks full of money, doesn’t look like it’ll be solely based on racing.

Alex Bullock June 10, 201310:28 pm

The Crew. Lots of racing games on the horizon (but not Horizon)

Tom June 10, 201310:27 pm

Actually, Sony please more Motorstorm.

Tom June 10, 201310:27 pm

looks very motorstorm in places

Curt June 10, 201310:27 pm

I’m hoping this is in-engine.

Curt June 10, 201310:27 pm

Then the wheels transform and we go offroad.

Alex Bullock June 10, 201310:26 pm

That’s CG, right? That’s not in engine, right?

Tom June 10, 201310:26 pm

Yeah next gen racing game.

Tom June 10, 201310:26 pm

Or I was readin the trailer wrong.

Tom June 10, 201310:26 pm

Looks like a 4 player co-op game where the player controls tyres.

Curt June 10, 201310:25 pm

Well the trailer looks beautiful.

Alex Bullock June 10, 201310:25 pm

Now we can relive that moment forever
http://pbs.twimg.com/media/BMbo_xYCEAAEjXp.jpg:large

Curt June 10, 201310:25 pm

A racing game if i’m recalling properly.

Curt June 10, 201310:25 pm

“The Crew” Trailer.

Alex Bullock June 10, 201310:25 pm

The next gen is tires falling over, you heard it here first

Tom June 10, 201310:25 pm

Jubisoft loves new consoles.

Curt June 10, 201310:24 pm

He’s discussing Jubisoft.

Tom June 10, 201310:24 pm

He is a very tiny man.

Curt June 10, 201310:24 pm

Like really really small.

Alex Bullock June 10, 201310:24 pm

I was going to comment on these two individuals but it’s probably libellous

Curt June 10, 201310:24 pm

He’s tiny.

Tom June 10, 201310:24 pm

25 minutes in and we finally get to next gen

Curt June 10, 201310:24 pm

Next-gen o’clock.

Curt June 10, 201310:23 pm

“The moment we’ve all be waiting for guys”

Alex Bullock June 10, 201310:23 pm

Another cool little teaser. They’re actually announcing that they’re moving onto talking about next gen games – here’s Yvres.

Curt June 10, 201310:23 pm

Nothing we haven’t seen. A few extra scenes about farting.

Tom June 10, 201310:22 pm

Here we go!!

Alex Bullock June 10, 201310:22 pm

Stick of Truth!

Curt June 10, 201310:22 pm

Here comes some info about The Stick of Truth – The South Park RPG.

Alex Bullock June 10, 201310:21 pm

The contrast between those two comments is priceless.

Curt June 10, 201310:21 pm

Well that just made the trailer amazing. FOUL LANGUAGE.

Tom June 10, 201310:21 pm

If I was 10 I would find this funny

Alex Bullock June 10, 201310:20 pm

For some reason this just makes me want the Ratchet and Clank movie

Curt June 10, 201310:20 pm

So we’re now seeing castle Cribs and the guy is just falling over.

Tom June 10, 201310:20 pm

Well not anymore!

Tom June 10, 201310:20 pm

This reminds me of the cutscene at the beginning of Skyro 1

Curt June 10, 201310:19 pm

themightyquest.com is now in closed beta, go sign up if you’re into that kind of thing.

Alex Bullock June 10, 201310:19 pm

Do not besmirch the good name of Dungeon Keeper

Curt June 10, 201310:19 pm

Looks like Diablo 3/Torchlight X Dungeon Keeper.

Curt June 10, 201310:18 pm

So now we’re looking at “The Mighty Quest for Epic Loot”

Curt June 10, 201310:18 pm

Right so I can’t say this guy’s name.

Alex Bullock June 10, 201310:17 pm

It’s an Origins map pack, and I don’t think anyone who played Origins will be complaining.

Tom June 10, 201310:17 pm

Its very fun, especially co-op

Curt June 10, 201310:17 pm

Looks like Castle Crashers IMO.

Tom June 10, 201310:16 pm

THe annoying thing is this game has been playable in HMV stores on WiiU Demo units for months!

Curt June 10, 201310:16 pm

Genuinely looks good. Destructible environments, plenty of violence and chase levels.

Alex Bullock June 10, 201310:16 pm

or Sprung for DS. There really aren’t enough dating games where you can mace people…DOWN THE PHONE.

Curt June 10, 201310:15 pm

And here’s gameplay.

Tom June 10, 201310:15 pm

“Super fun right?”

Rayman Legends coming September 3rd.

Alex Bullock June 10, 201310:15 pm

Can I just take this opportunity to beg for No More Heroes 3, and instead inevitably receive a Myst reboot

Tom June 10, 201310:14 pm

Nice to see a 3D trailer of a 2D game. Logic.

Curt June 10, 201310:14 pm

Another cut-scene, still no gameplay featured and 15 minutes into the conference.

Alex Bullock June 10, 201310:14 pm

Another game we’ve already seen a shit tonne of. But it does look lovely.

Tom June 10, 201310:13 pm

Due last year

Curt June 10, 201310:13 pm

Rayman Legends.

Curt June 10, 201310:13 pm

Rayman coming…

Tom June 10, 201310:13 pm

Doesnt help that the director of the stream is more bothered about the scenery than the footage!

Curt June 10, 201310:12 pm

Well this has just gone on for too long. Nothing special.

Curt June 10, 201310:11 pm

We can’t really tell if any of this is gameplay.

Alex Bullock June 10, 201310:11 pm

Watch Dogs is next gen, we’ll get there

Tom June 10, 201310:11 pm

I guess you can’t stop the blacklist

Tom June 10, 201310:11 pm

They have so far shown 2 this gen games. Hopefully just starting slow and building.

Curt June 10, 201310:10 pm

This trailer really isn’t showing us anything.

Alex Bullock June 10, 201310:10 pm

Peggle guy deserves our undying respect

Alex Bullock June 10, 201310:10 pm

At least they don’t have employees there cheering for them

Tom June 10, 201310:10 pm

Not every “joke” falls flat

Curt June 10, 201310:10 pm

Splinter Cell trailer incoming.

Alex Bullock June 10, 201310:09 pm

I’m not a huge Splinter Cell fan anyway, but this one looks spectacularly generic

Curt June 10, 201310:09 pm

Asking for applause…

Alex Bullock June 10, 201310:09 pm

Every joke falls flat at E3, it doesn’t work for anyone

Curt June 10, 201310:09 pm

“Biggest SP ever.”

Tom June 10, 201310:09 pm

They were the same last year, but it was worse with Tobuscus involved.

Curt June 10, 201310:09 pm

Splinter Cell confirmed August 2013. Blacklist.

Curt June 10, 201310:08 pm

Her jokes are just falling flat.

Alex Bullock June 10, 201310:08 pm

I take back what I said before

Curt June 10, 201310:08 pm

I guess we’re going to get a nice compilation.

Alex Bullock June 10, 201310:08 pm

“Bonkers slate of games, so freakin’ amped”

Tom June 10, 201310:08 pm

And thats what E3 2013 comes down to. Aishas Botox.

Curt June 10, 201310:07 pm

The botox is really showing.

Curt June 10, 201310:07 pm

Awkward sexual reference delivered with a steely expression.

Tom June 10, 201310:07 pm

So no drums and keyboard in Rocksmith, just Kinect controlled Ai?

Tom June 10, 201310:06 pm

Named like FIFA 14

Curt June 10, 201310:06 pm

FIFA game naming as you do.

Curt June 10, 201310:06 pm

2013.

Curt June 10, 201310:06 pm

Or 2013?

Alex Bullock June 10, 201310:06 pm

I don’t think she was that bad, the flak was disproportionate

Curt June 10, 201310:06 pm

Rocksmith 2014 confirmed for October 2014.

Alex Bullock June 10, 201310:05 pm

Oh she’s back! Again, impressed

Tom June 10, 201310:05 pm

Fuck not her again…

Tom June 10, 201310:05 pm

Classy naming

Curt June 10, 201310:05 pm

Rocksmith 2014 – Session Mode.

Alex Bullock June 10, 201310:05 pm

Stop before we curse it

Curt June 10, 201310:05 pm

Think of your favourite band opening with a B-side.

Tom June 10, 201310:05 pm

I really hope there is no Tobuscus this time around!

Alex Bullock June 10, 201310:04 pm

This is much cooler than I could ever have expected from Ubisoft. This is the same company that brought us laser tag a couple of years ago

Curt June 10, 201310:04 pm

The real question is, is this the one they want to be opening with?

Tom June 10, 201310:04 pm

How do I plug my drums into a USB!?

Curt June 10, 201310:04 pm

And Keyboard.

Tom June 10, 201310:04 pm

Oh lord Drums in Rocksmith?

Curt June 10, 201310:03 pm

Looks to be the case. 4 instruments.

Tom June 10, 201310:03 pm

Did they just announce full band Rocksmith?

Curt June 10, 201310:03 pm

Boom Rocksmith. Voice controlled.

Tom June 10, 201310:03 pm

Unless they purchased Guitar Hero IP?

Alex Bullock June 10, 201310:03 pm

I think you’ve nailed it

Tom June 10, 201310:03 pm

He has a guitar… ROCKSMITH fo sure

Curt June 10, 201310:02 pm

I don’t doubt.

Curt June 10, 201310:02 pm

ROCKSMITH.

Alex Bullock June 10, 201310:02 pm

Red Tom leaving via window

Tom June 10, 201310:02 pm

Oh look music… wait… music?

Curt June 10, 201310:02 pm

Can’t see this going anywhere.

Tom June 10, 201310:02 pm

Red Tom Standing By!

Curt June 10, 201310:02 pm

Jerry Cantrell from Alice in Chains is going to play us a song.

Curt June 10, 201310:01 pm

Ubisoft starting now! Tom get in here!

Curt June 10, 201310:01 pm

Maybe even a new PETZ!?

Alex Bullock June 10, 201310:00 pm

And there’s the very vague possibility of a Far Cry 4 tease.

Alex Bullock June 10, 201310:00 pm

Beyond Good and Evil 2? Ape Escape? They’ve got enough old games I’d be thrilled with rebooting.

Curt June 10, 20139:58 pm

Maybe Ubi will pull out another original IP.

Curt June 10, 20139:57 pm

With EA’s Battlefield and Mirror’s Edge, then Battlefront on top, they could be ones to watch.

Curt June 10, 20139:57 pm

Reminds me of Oblivion’s “Radiant AI” which really turned out to be a massive let down.

Alex Bullock June 10, 20139:56 pm

It’s easy to forget that Ubisoft actually won E3 last year. This one might be a bit of a slog. Hope not.

Curt June 10, 20139:56 pm

I’ve really tried to avoid Watch Dogs since I saw the second gameplay video which was just the same as the first one, very scripted. I’m just interested in what will happen with Ubi today. Hoepfully we’ll see something completely new.

Alex Bullock June 10, 20139:54 pm

Also that Remember Me took a similar line and was severely disappointing. So partly, the less I know the more I want it.

Alex Bullock June 10, 20139:51 pm

And Watch Dogs! I only missed the most anticipated one. I’ve seen so much now, I keep expecting it to just come out without me noticing.

Alex Bullock June 10, 20139:45 pm

This is an interesting one. Ubisoft have so many properties, anything could pop up. We’re almost certain to see Obsidian’s South Park, Splinter Cell, Rayman Legends and Assassin’s Creed Fyarrrrr. Vegas? Prince of Persia? We’re on a conference roll…

Curt June 10, 20139:39 pm

T-Minus: 20 Minutes until Ubisoft Conference.
