We caught a glimpse of Ubisoft’s Far Cry 3 single player during their press conference on Monday. The game is looking great, and I’m not just saying that because the trailer they showed started with some rather gratuitous nudity.
Back in March, Team17 Software announced that they were working on Worms Revolution, the newest iteration in the zany Worms franchise. Now that E3 is here, we can tell you that they’ve honed in on everything that you loved about the earlier Worms to give us another fun and challenging turn-based strategy game.
A lot of stuff is coming out of E3 but if you are not here you can’t get a good understanding of what the floor is like without seeing it. Here are some pictures of the general floor areas and booths. I will be updating it tomorrow with more pictures to tickle your fancy. Read the rest of this article…
In a pre-E3 press breifing, Ubisoft blew the minds of journalists from across the globe with a trailer and demo for their new IP, “Watch Dogs”.
Until now, no other information has been available; Just a couple of screenshots.
Well now we’ve gotten our hot little hands on the official teaser for this crazy sexy upcoming title, as well as about 10 minutes of gameplay.
Today, Keith and I hit up 505 Games to check out their stealth assassin game Naughty Bear, which is being re-released as an arcade title this fall. Naughty is a murderous Teddy Bear who goes on a killing spree when he doesn’t get invited to a party. Apparently, it’s like a super-simplified version of Hitman… with Teddy Bears.
Just to give you an idea of the game’s goofy, tongue-in-cheek tone, the loading screen (called “loathing” screen) is a minigame with Naughty Bear throwing knives into a helpless bear’s chest.
I haven’t played Assassin’s Creed multiplayer before and it shows. The poor Ubisoft rep trying to talk me through the demo would always start by saying something like, “Okay, what you want to do is…” Then I would inevitably die and he’d sigh, “Um, never mind.”
One of the things we got to look at in the Ubisoft press briefing was the new Splinter Cell title, “Blacklist”. This one is looking really good.
With Kinect voice support and shiny gameplay, Splinter Cell: Blacklist promises to be one of the bigger triple-a releases of 2013.
E3, the final frontier of gaming. This is the article that explains the new Star Trek game by NAMCO BANDAI. It includes an “epic action adventure” co-op that takes place between the first film and the unannounced sequel. To boldly write an intro, completely unoriginal.
By IDC’s check, chances are (well, only by margin of about 48%) that you know what cloud gaming is, which in the case of OnLive is running a bunch of games in their data center and then broadcasting the video results to your computer or TV through a console. Kelly and I dropped in on the OnLive and Razer joint conference this morning to hear what they had to say about its future.
Hell week continues with day 3. The official “day 1” of E3 kicked off with the Nintendo press briefing, followed by the opening of the meeting rooms and the show floor. It was another crazy day of going from press conference to meeting room to demo to press conference and back again and there was a ton of good stuff to see.
