They had me at the world map.

At first glance I thought, this isn’t my type of game. As the trailer continued though, I found myself becoming more and more interested in what was happening here. I signed up for the beta and I’ll see you online!

Please read my comments below before leaving a comment.

Almost every game Ubisoft showed today was going to have a beta you could register for. You can definitely try it before you buy it with most of these titles.  That is probably a good thing since nothing really stood out for me here.  I was hoping to see something new that I could be excited for, but that didn’t happen.  I was looking forward to seeing Skull and Bones, but that game looked unfinished and not at all fun.  The best looking game was Beyond Good and Evil 2, buuuuuut even in the gameplay clips of this game it looks just like every other action beat ‘em up.  Around 6:35 you can see the combat.

Here’s the entire clip from the press conference for Beyond Good and Evil 2.

Assassin's Creed 3 - Gameplay Premiere Trailer

By: BatRastered May 10, 2012 | 4 Comments

The newest trailer for Assassin's Creed III gives a deeper look at the franchise's new hero. Trapped between two worlds, Connor dons the mantle of the Assassin in the fight for justice against the Templars.

Running through the buildings looks cool, but I'm not seeing anything new here. What are your thoughts?

I Am Alive, What's the status here?

By: iorilamia Jan 1, 2011 | 7 Comments

Had no idea this game was in the making until recently, and damn it sounds great, I would really love to enjoy more info and screens and gameplay.

The game has been in development since 2008 and constantly pushed back with more and more BS. The schedualed release date is sometime this year (TBA) on ps3,wii and the 360. Earthquake fucks some shit up in Chicago and you play as this dude who is trying to survive, and find his chick. you have to evade hostile people who are stealing shit, somehow keep hydrated and not get killed by the crumbling city. The game is first person, you control a guy named Adam, your searching the city ofcourse to stay alive and find food and weapons, but you can also threaten people with a empty gun to get our way. You can also drive abandoned cars in third person view. Their isnt much video and images on the game, but from what little we have, I already love the idea. What is important is that they dont fuck up mechanics, or end up having a boring ass game. Also a game like this might actually be a lot more fun on wii because of motion control, but if theirs some sort of online play I will be getting it for ps3 instead. Links below to info, videos and pictures, what do you guys think? Hopefully you guys have some more info on this game x,x

E3 Trailer (Judging by the video, I HOPE theirs random environment events, like shit crumpling away or crazy people going apeshit, simply, maybe RDR style in some sense)

 

Crappy beta alpha screenshots (better than nothing)

Ubisoft press conference

By: jalexbrown Jun 14, 2010 | 0 Comments

My impressions of the Ubisoft keynote speech.

When Ubisoft started out their keynote, I wasn't quite sure what I was watching.  I thought maybe I'd changed the channel and turned on the Stoner's Channel - but I hadn't; Ubisoft was just showing off Children of Eden, a super-trippy game that is supposed to be (I think) the spiritual successor to Rez.  I might have been impressed, but I can't tell, because I had no idea what I was seeing.  It was trippy - I'll give it that - but all I saw was some guy wailing his arms around and colorful blocks doing crazy things.  I don't know about this Ubisoft; I mean, it was cool on the PS2, but really?

Next they showed Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood with a demo that looked amazing.  Mind you I've never played either of the first two Assassin's Creed games, but this demo automatically made me want this game to come out already.  There was just something about it that was so cool looking.  In my opinion it seemed to have a bit of a Prince of Persia feel to it with the acrobatics and combat, but that's certainly nothing bad at all.

Then they showed Shaun White Skateboarding, which - okay, I really like the concept of this game; I think it sounds really cool to skate around and change the world.  I think this has the potential to be the next-gen version of what a really cool Tony Hawk game could have been.  To be completely honest I'm quite excited about this game, and that's saying a lot since I don't care much about skateboarding games.

Battle tag - what?  That's not a video game at all.  I'm not even really sure what to say about this - but I can only assume that you wouldn't care about it if I knew how to explain it.  Where is the 'video' part of video game here?

Innergy?  Wait a minute - where have I seen this before?  Oh, I know...this was the Vitality Sensor that Nintendo showed off last year.  Yes, that's right; you put it on your finger and it reads your vital information.  Mind you it doesn't look there's any real game here.  Where the battle tag crap lacked the 'video' part of video game, this lacks the 'game' part of video game.  Okay, so moving on...

Next Ubisoft showed a couple Kinect games.  One was Motion Sports, which dare I say is Wii Sports for the 360.  I literally saw nothing here that impressed me, and nothing really that looked new at all.  I'm not sure why Ubisoft expects anyone to care about this, especially since Microsoft had a nearly identical game they showed during their keynote speech.  I'll pass.

Ugh, another fitness game?!  They already showed off Your Shape: Fitness Evolved during the Microsoft keynote, but apparently they thought it was good enough to show again.  Well guess what - they were wrong.  In fact it wasn't worth showing off the first time.  Next.

There was a little video for Raving Rabbids Travel in Time.  None of this video was gameplay, so I'm having a hard time figuring out what kind of game this is.  It's exclusively for the Wii, so my expectations are next to nil.  But to be fair, I can't really say anything for certain, because all they showed was a gameplay-free trailer.

Ghost Recon: Future Soldier - this is what everyone wanted to see.  And I'm glad to say that it didn't disappoint.  There was a demo that looks freaking amazing.  I really can't wait for this game to come out!  I wasn't the least bit interested in this game before, but after seeing it in demo form...wow.  There's a nice mixture of stealth and action.  The graphics looked amazing, and this isn't even the final build.  Just wow.  The demo left me speechless.

They showed a demo of Driver: San Francisco next.  I'm just...well, I remember the old Driver games; they weren't that great.  Driver was a series that I was fine with being gone.  I felt no need to see it brought back.  But since it is being brought back, it looks...meh.  You drive around doing cool chase scenes.  It's pretty much what you'd expect, and it doesn't look like it offers much more than what you'd expect.  This might be the perfect type of game for someone, but not me.

They showed a trailer of a game that is being called Project: Dust right now.  The trailer doesn't really tell you much about the game, so I'm not sure of much about it.  The premise was certainly interesting; it appears to be about some ancient civilization trying to survive or something of that nature.  I'm not sure what genre of game this will be, but I think that if the gameplay can match the premise, it might just end up being pretty good.

Rayman has been gone for a while, so I'm surprised that we got to see Rayman: Origins.  There's something you must know about this game if you didn't see the gameplay: it's freaking cute as hell, but that's not at all a bad thing.  It really does look like it's a very charming game, and I think it looks like it could be one of those games that is just pure fun, which is something I've been wanting for a while.

ManiaPlanet isn't a game at all; it's a platform to allow people to make their own games.  TrackMania is something that has been out for a while, and it's been quite popular.  Now it's being branched out into a whole platform that will have TrackMania, ShooterMania, and QuestMania (racing, FPS, and RPG accordingly).  This has that whole LittleBigPlanet feel to it where it's focusing on the gamers as creators.  The problem I have with this is that most of us aren't game designers, and I don't want to have to sift through loads of crap from artistic wannabes to find one gem.

Apparently there's a Michael Jackson game of some sort.  I don't know; some people came out and danced to Beat It.  Whatever.  Just Dance: Michael Jackson?  Meh.  I'd rather not Just Dance if it's all the same to Ubisoft.

Yeah, Ubisoft's keynote was just horrible.  There were a few interesting games, and a few great looking games, but...there was just too much that disappointed me.  I'm feeling that Ubisoft is becoming one of the major advocates of casual gaming.  With things like Innergy in the pipeline, I'm just...I can't get behind Ubisoft on this.  Terrible.  Tsk, tsk.

Microsoft announces House Party; four XBLA games arriving soon

By: BatRastered Jan 10, 2012 | 3 Comments | Updated: Jan 13, 2012

Beginning Feb. 15, Xbox LIVE will deliver four back-to-back releases of the best downloadable games, with one new title a week.

Microsoft always has a great lineup of  Xbox Live Arcade titles every E3 for their "Summer of Arcade". It looks like they're trying to do the same thing with CES and "House Party". There are some interesting titles here; an Alan Wake sequel delivered as a XBLA game instead of a full retail product. I liked the original despite poking fun at it's oft-delayed status. There's also Ubisoft's "I Am Alive" which originally was to be a full retail product from what I can tell. They seemed to have reduced the scope to allow it to actualy get released. GoukiJones got to play Warp at PAX, he probably doesn't remember, but it's a clever title that allows your character to warp from place to place, including inside people to make them... uh... explode. Nexuiz is the lone newcommer here, so I'm interested to see what that is about.

Here's the lineup from Major Nelson:

Alan Wake’s American Nightmare (Microsoft Studios): In this brand-new stand-alone experience, Alan Wake fights the herald of darkness, the evil Mr. Scratch. A thrilling new storyline, hordes of creepy enemies, serious firepower and beautiful Arizona locations, combined with a fun and challenging new game mode, make this a must for Alan Wake veterans, and the perfect jumping-on point for new players. Can you survive until sunrise?

clip_image002

I Am Alive (Ubisoft): One year after a worldwide cataclysmic event has wiped out most of human civilization, a man struggles for survival. Faced with an insecure, decaying and hazardous world, he scours a desolated city, searching for his long-lost wife and daughter. Survive the suffocating, murky streets covered in dust. Climb the teetering remains of last-standing skyscrapers to reach breathable air and find untouched resources. Explore the crumbling ruins of a once-thriving metropolis. Discover a changed human condition, punctuated by distrustful survivors, dangerous armed gangs and victims in need.

clip_image004

Nexuiz (THQ): For centuries, the Kavussari and the Forsellians have waged war. They have a fragile truce but, because of their seething disgust of each other, still pit warriors against each other in arenas rather than on the fields of war. These episodes of lethal combat are broadcast throughout the galaxy as entertainment — a spectacle known as The Nexuiz Competition — an arena-based first-person shooter where you can alter the rules of the match and the laws of physics while dominating opponents in ever-changing hostile environments.

clip_image006

Warp (EA): “Warp” is a puzzle-based stealth action game where you play as Zero, a lovable-yet-lethal orange alien with a big score to settle! Captured by the villainous Commander and imprisoned in his underwater facility, Zero must plan his ultimate escape using his arsenal of alien abilities — warp, frag, echo, swap and launch.

Ubisoft Booth E3 2013 GJ vs FNJ Exclusive Video

By: goukijones Jun 30, 2013 | 1 Comments

GoukiJones & FnJimmy talk about Ubisoft & some random Jimmy walks thru the shot. E3 2013. Some fuckin' nuab walking thru the shot.

Shout out to Ubisoft, thank you for allowing us to raid your booth & check out all of the games. Well we didn't see Watch Dogs, but I don't need to waste time at E3 on a game that is coming out in the next couple of months. We saw it during the press conference & it pretty much looked the same last year & was still on schedule. That demo was going to be basically more of the same. 

We saw the Stick of Truth, now everybody remember this was a THQ game last year & was actually supposed to be released in March. Well THQ crashed & Ubisoft got the rights to this game. So I was interested to see how/if any of the game was changed. The last time I saw it was at SDCC. Now you can fight on the outside of instanced fights. Oh man, what am I trying to say. Say you're walking around in the over world, well in South Park you have the option to use a sling shot or whatever they had & take out 1 of the baddies, then run up to the guy next to him, touch him & then go into battle. I don't really know how well that is going to work in the game overall, but it seemed pretty smooth during the demo. BTW this game looks just like the show, it's amazing. Super hype!

AC17, skipped it. Don't care.

The car racing game where you're taking down money trucks. Looks cool. But it's cars, it's bullshit.

We saw the Guitar game. People will never play anything like Guitar Hero again, when you can play with a real guitar & actually learn a skill. It's expensive yeah, but just do what BatRastered says, go to the Pawn Shop & get some Jimmy ass guitar for like $40 bucks & start playing. 

The Division was the only really unique thing we saw. Unfortunately it was the same exact demo as the press conference. Maybe there was a little more explained to us, but basically the same shit. This game looks dope, we of course had tons of questions about how the open world & VS stuff works, but they weren't talking about any of that right now. Classic E3. Got some cool swag tho.

"Tom Clancy’s XDefiant" Sign Up Now For The Beta Testing

By: goukijones Jul 20 (12 days ago) | 1 Comments

A brand new squad-based arena shooter from Ubisoft.

Beta starts August 5, 2021. My first impression is a cross between Halo and Overwatch. Am I right? I don’t know, I have only seen the trailer. You have specialized jobs and classes that fight against other group on the opposing side. The maps look cool and the character design looks well done. Ubisoft has been trying to get something like this going - with what looks like The District engine - for a long time. Rainbow 6 did very well for them, but those close quarters swat combat games aren’t really my thing.

Check out the latest action in South Park: The Stick of Truth by watching the new "Destiny" trailer. In the trailer, the New Kid steps forth and fulfills his, well, destiny.
