Here are a few of the games that stuck out to me above the rest… South Park: The Fractured But Whole While there was a time when South Park was among my … Continue reading E3 2016 Favorites

E3 2016: PlayStation Press Conference

Sony’s 2015 press conference has become near legendary at this point. With the return of The Last Guardian and reveals of Final Fantasy VII Remake, Shenmue 3, and Horizon Zero Dawn, this year’s PlayStation would certainly be held to an impossibly high standard. While the game announcements may not have quite matched last year’s, the 2016 PlayStation press conference adopted a more streamlined format, added a live orchestra conducted by Bear … Continue reading E3 2016: PlayStation Press Conference

E3 2016: Ubisoft Press Conference

Over the past few years, Ubisoft has developed a cadence for their press conferences.

That trend continued this year with some huge demos including one of a brand new IP. Let’s get into it… Just Dance 2017 This game’s existence isn’t too much of … Continue reading E3 2016: Ubisoft Press Conference

E3 2016: EA Press Conference

It’s finally here! E3 week kicked off on Sunday with press conferences from EA and Bethesda. While I wish I could say that the week started off with a bang, EA led off with a less than inspired press conference burdened with long segments dedicated to Madden 17 and FIFA 17. Unfortunately the conference wasn’t redeemed with the announcement of new Star Wars titles or with an in-depth look at Mass … Continue reading E3 2016: EA Press Conference

Armed with Aisha Tyler and an assortment of big-budget games, Ubisoft has found a surprising amount of success at E3 in recent years. Their strategy has been to show one big surprise announcement at the end of each conference, hopefully winning over the crowd. It’s a strategy that brought us Watch_DogsThe DivisionRainbow Six Siege, and Ghost Recon: Wildlands. Although these games haven’t been without their flaws, they’ve all generated incredible hype starting with their respective announcements. Can Ubisoft replicate that success in 2016?
