Ubisoft’s Lamest, Coolest and Most Surprising E3 Moments
So after EA’s fiasco it’s time for Ubisoft to showcase its best weapons in terms of gaming. Or to be another fiasco as well… The real question is: was it worse than EA’s conference? Read below and find out:
Coolest moment: FarCry 4 was definitely the coolest moment of Ubisoft conference. I, like every other gamer out there, was looking forward to this moment, and even though we didn’t see any gameplay, the first 5 minutes of the game were amazing. And even though the previous instalment was a great one, Ubisoft convinced us in just a few minutes that they can do a lot more.
Bonus: The Rabbids intro. Though it wasn’t part of the conference per se, it was plain cool!
Bonus x2: Dan Hay’s voice.
Lamest moment: I can’t decide between the lame dancing moment or the lame push-up moment. Seriously, gamers who watch E3 do not care about this kind of things! Actually, gamers do not care about this kind of things in general. Both moments were plain stupid. Awkward. And LAME. How can you present such horrible things after FarCry 4 and Assassin Creed: Unity?! They should make it illegal. These two moments were officially the lamest moments at E3, until now. Not only they were lame – they were also boringly long!
Bonus: Aisha Tyler’s cursing. It’s lame, it’s not funny, it’s vulgar.
Most surprising moment: Valiant Hearts. I mean, it’s not really surprising since it was expected to be a beautiful title, and even though we did not see any live gameplay, the trailer looked fabulous. It showed the horrors of war on the Western Front from the unique viewpoint of four characters, including a dog! It’s definitely one to watch.
Bonus: Rainbow Six: Siege. It’s been six years since the last one, and this one just looks amazing. I always loved SWAT games, and this one fits perfectly into that category. The anticipation, the nail-biting thrill – this is what a Rainbow Six title should look like.
Even though Ubisoft had a lot of bad moments (on top of that, the bad moments were also the longest), it was still better than EA’s conference and it actually showed some gameplay which is what we actually wanted in the first place. Here’s a warm 6.5/10.
