E3 2012 – Ubisoft Showcases Assassin’s Creed III

Those of you hungry for the third installment of the Assassin’s Creed franchise should feel sated after Ubisoft’s press conference today. Ubisoft treated us to some tasty gameplay of their tentpole stealth-action franchise, showing off the game’s stunning visuals, solid animations and the Parkour-heavy, target killing gameplay that we have come to know and love.

E3 2012 – Watch Dogs.  Contender for Best of E3?

We just got out of the Ubisoft press briefing and they had a lot of good stuff to show us. From Wii U titles like Rayman Legends and Zombi U (Both of which got high pitched squeals of delight from the fat beardy guy just to the left of us), to multi-platform titles like Assasin’s Creed 3 and Splinter Cell Blacklist, it looks like Ubisoft is staing up to have one hell of a release schedule.

The show-closer, which hasn’t been given a release date, as yet, was pretty impressive. Read on to find out more about Ubisoft’s upcoming title: Watch Dogs.

Goodbye Zune, Hello Xbox Music

Goodbye Zune, Hello Xbox Music

My favorite announcement at Microsoft’s E3 press conference wasn’t even a game. Sure, there are legions ready to tear Microsoft asunder for announcing as many services like ESPN and Univision as they were games like Halo 4 or South Park, but that’s really just part of the equation at this point. You simply can’t have a powerful, internet-enabled piece of silicon without some extra responsibilities these days. Before E3, I’d started writing a piece on the life and death of Zune and with today’s announcement, Zune is now officially dead. Read the rest of this article…

“We’ve Heard It A Few Times” – 343 On Halo 4’s Resemblance To Metroid

“We’ve Heard It A Few Times” – 343 On Halo 4’s Resemblance To Metroid

In its thunderous open, Microsoft showed off just one of the many fruits of 343 Studios’ work on Halo 4 with a brief introduction to the single-player campaign during their E3 2012 press onference. As we covered in our live blog, the jungle level they had shown seemed awfully reminiscent of Retro’s first-person reboot of the Metroid series. From the more complete visor, to the glowing bug-like enemies and an alien super soldier with a small avatar/chopper in its back. All the time I watched this, I was having flashbacks to Metroid Prime’s exploratory levels.

FEZCast PrE3

This is the thing — I’m having difficulty writing a nice little blurb for our pre E3 or “prE3” podcast due to hundreds of elevators going up and down outside of our window. Regardless of all the distractions LA has to provide, we discuss the trip to Cali, what we’re doing at E3, and vagina hands. I hoped that intrigued you enough to not run away.
