looks potentially awesome, though I'll still give it a pass, if Ubisoft can't get its ****ty DRM sorted. The rest of Ubisoft's press conference was utterly without merit, particularly the sheer amount of padding and god-awful banter between the hack speakers.
It's pretty clear so far that developers have very little idea what to do with the Wii U's tablet controller, as nearly every demo and trailer just shows the tablet dupicating what's being displayed on the television. Microsoft's continuing to try to tag along with each fad that Nintendo taps into continues to be laughable.
EA's conference was pretty bland, but the FIFA '13
trailer gave me a brilliant idea: Football Hooligan Simulator [year]
, with a Rioters versus Law Enforcement multiplayer mode. **** the actual playing of soccer. Make a soccer video game that completely ignores the playing of soccer, in favor of the aftermath of the playing of soccer! I think I snoozed through the rest of EA's offering.
I honestly have not even bothered watching the rest of the E3 conferences. Watchdogs
stole the show for me. It's the only big title that didn't feel like it was following a super-safe formula, and there was really no way that Sony could hope to top that, particularly since they have a commercial reason to be super-focused on the Vita, a platform that I have no interest in whatsoever.
It bears repeating: Watchdogs
. If you've only got time to watch ten minutes of E3 footage, that's the footage to watch.
