#E32018: #UbiE3, part 1

My continuing coverage of E3 this year moves on with UbiSoft at E3. Ubi is known for Assassin's Creed, every game with Tom Clancy's name on it, Prince of Persia, and even the lackluster Watch Dogs.

... WTF? Was someone on drugs during this presentation? Because the opening act in the panda bear outside and the marching band ... huh?

Anyway, the first game looks like ... Hoth?  Hmm. I'm guessing it's the sequel to Beyond Good and Evil from ... many moons ago. Funny, I have some vague recollection of that game being set in a more tropical setting.

While I have no horse in this race, I will say that it looks far more interesting than the original game did...

And for some reason, the protagonist from the first game appears to be the villain of the sequel? Huh.

......... and the people on stage inform us that this is a prequel. Okay.

Let's see ... Rainbow 6: Siege contests. Racing games.

Sigh. And we're back to The Division 2. The Graphics are okay. Though "The Government Agency is going to save you" feels a lot less realistic than it's supposed to.

They're promising a story. But they also want to talk about American dictators.

Skull and Bones is coming, at long last. It was announced a while ago.

They're billing this as "There are no heroes" in this game.

It's almost as though they decided to make Assassin's Creed: Black Flag boating sections into a full game.

Transference seems to be a mystery- horror game backed by a video game company owned by ... Elijah Wood.  Who knew?

Well, this looks ... creepy.

And then there's ... Star Link

Starring ... Star Fox? I know it's called Star Link, but it's a furry at the helm of a space fighter.

Also, more "For Honor."  Eh. They couldn't get me interested the first time.

I have to get going, and UbiSoft is doing a two hour presentation, apparently. So, more later.

The Dragons are coming.
If you don't have your ballot filled out already (either IRL or in your head,) here's my list. It includes the lists of other people, so there are options.
Just remember to vote.
