Ubisoft at E3

I just have to say, Ubi's conference was probably the best event I've seen at E3 in a couple of years.
Pretty much every game they've showcased, I'm hyped for.

Watch Dogs Legion in particular. I've played the first, it was meh. I didn't bother with the second one because the protagonists were extremely unlikeable. But Legion? Holy hell, man that is one cool concept to build upon. The combat looks interessting, almost gives me the "Gun-fu" vibe, but the characters, just wow. Being able to play as anybody in the city, with random skill sets and gameplay options, character permadeath, ex-assassin grannies!
I mean... Ex-assassin grannies with killer robot facehuggers! How cool is that?

2020 will be one hell of a year for gaming.
 
I mean it's good. But I'm still far more excited by CyberKeanu.
Well, so am I.
But I'm still going to play the WDL for that month and a half till the CP2077 release. :)

And many things before that. Like the Ghost Recon. I love Wildlands and this will be better in every way imaginable.

To be honest, I'm slightly annoyed that the Planet Zoo is coming in November as well. I expected it to come out in September and help me to bridge that gap between now and all the awesomeness that will start to come out between the November and April 2020. Oh well.
 
I don't know. I've not seen a single game in their presentation I'd actually want to purchase. I would be interested in Watch Dogs, if previous two games weren't so vapid and boring. Ghost Recon just looks like a joke at this point, having zero resemblance to what GR once was. The new cartoony monster hunter looking game looks visually at least a bit interesting. The Roller thing is just a blatant attempt at making their own Rocket League. And R6 Quarantine...seriously? Zombies in 2019?
 
I found it more disturbing that nothing had actual gameplay aside from the maybe gameplay of Legions. Not even the games that are actually already out, like the Division 2 and Wildlands. Pretty prerendered teasers are not enought, imo.
 
Ever since I got my hands on AC Origins, my opinion about Ubisoft has changed in a profound way - now I believe they can actually do decent stuff. :)
EA and Bethesda... not so much. The SW Fallen Order gameplay teaser was especially weak.

Yeah, Ubi are probably my favourite publishing house at the moment. The only other publisher where I can easily say "whatever they publish I will play" is Frontier.
During the last year I've played the Wildlands, AC Odyssey, Division 2 and Anno 1800 and all four games are phenomenal fun.
I'm not discarding the Fallen Order, but I am definitely more hyped for the Ubi stuff than any other (with one exception). Basically the only two things that really raised my pulse at the Microsoft conference were the CP2077 and MFS. The rest of my "must have" list for 2020 is Ubi.

If I were to say one bad thing about the Ubi conference, it would be the slight disappointment over the non-existence of any Beyond Good and Evil info. They are apparently having big issues with that game, which is a shame.
 
Even though none of the Ubisoft games are in my top "love it" list, they do have put out very decent games on a consistent basis across a long period of time, and have a lot of successful franchises like Anno, Settlers, Far Cry, Assassins Creed, Ghost Recon, etc etc. They have also never (that I know of) engaged in any douchebaggery practices so far, so I do respect Ubisoft as a pretty solid gaming company.

To me that's definitely Rockstar, pretty much the only I dev I'd preorder from.
Frontier used to be - Jurassic World's broken mission system is a big let down, and I was actually upset how and what they laid out for Elite's future.
