E3 2011 – Ubisoft
Next on the list was Ubisoft’s event. Before I start can I just say 1. just give us the info, you’re not funny and 2. hire people who speak english or make them learn it better. I can’t understand half of what you just said about Track Mania…not that I cared but I digress…Here is what Ubisoft had to offer:
Rayman Origins – This live demo showed some co-op and brought me back to the SNES and Sega days. It had a old school feeling with it’s well animated 2D side scrolling action. The game will support a 4 player co-op.
Driver San Fancisco – Nothing special unfortunatley. Driver will have a multiplayer feature though.
Farcry 3 – This actually looked decent. Got a little sneak peak of gameplay and seemed to have a mixture of stealth and regualr cap busting. The dialog was a bit rough because they censors had a field day with the “beep” button.
Brothers in Arms: Furious Four – 2012 – This is another squad based shooter set in WW2. A mixture of funny characters and over the top style action and humor may make this game one of the better BiA titles.
Adventures of TinTin – Adventure style game….they didn’t have much to say honestly. Peter Jackson and Steven Spielberg just talked about how good it was. Other than that I don’t really know much.
Ghost Recon: Future Soldier – Showed off some great looking gameplay. Showed the 4 player co-op on a mission to secure a VIP. It had good graphics and really smooth movement and shooting. It looked like a blast to me.
Ghost Recon Online – This will be a free to play PC game. It will also support the achievements you earn in Future Soldier
Track Mania 2 – This is part of Mania Planet which is a hub for other online games for PC. Basically it’s Mod Nation Racers with realism.
Raving Rabbids – Kinect – Nov 8 – The party game comes to Kinect…..wooo……
Just Dance 3 – Oct 2011 – This is wear I took a restroom break…..
Rocksmith – Oct 2011 – Yet another Rock Band/ Guitar Hero -ish game. Rocksmith is supposed to be more realistic than the other guitar games out there as well as being able to teach you how to play real guitar….we’ll see
Assassins Creed Revelations – Nov 2011 – First they showed a cinematic trailer which was great then they gave us a look at gameplay. The cut scenes looked nice but the graphics don’t look much different then the last one. We did get a chance to see a smoke bomb in action with the combination of eagle vision to take out three enemies. Then we saw Ezio running through a crazy course of burning/ exploding ships in the harbor. Looked pretty good.
I didn’t think Ubisoft had that strong of a lineup outside of Assassins Creed and Ghost Recon, but we will just have to see how it pans out.
