Ubisoft E3 Round Up.

Ubisoft's E3 conference is just finished, so for those of you who missed it, here are all the details:

Rocksmith 2014.

Jerry Cantrell of Alice in Chains called Rocksmith 2014 "really fun and addictive". Officially the fastest way to learn to play guitar, Rocksmith 2014 is due out this October.


Splinter Cell: Blacklist.

The biggest Splinter Cell, ever. Multiple co-op missions. And the return of Spies vs. Mercs.


The Blacklist hits this August.

Rayman Legends.

After a long, long wait for Rayman Legends, it is almost (finally!) here. Due out on September 3rd, the acclaimed platformer is back. With legendary missions, competitive multiplayer modes, epic boss battles, musical maps and OVER 120 LEVELS, Rayman Legends is looking to be the best Rayman game yet. A day-one purchase from me, for sure.


The Mighty Quest for Epic Loot.

Build a castle and place monsters/traps to protect your loot. Raid other castles for their loot, and if successful, leave a message to the castle's owner. Funniest trailer I've seen in a while, but I am partial to a bit of swearing, even if it is bleeped out.


South Park: The Stick of Truth.

From the minds of Trey Parker and Matt Stone comes even more hilarity. A piece of advise from Randy Marsh: "never ever fart on someone's balls".

Yep, this is South Park.

Coming this holiday season, or as Cartman said: "Or one holiday season, hopefully soon. You know what video games are like". Hopefully we see this sooner rather than later though, as we love South Park in this house.




The Crew.

Yves Guillimot came out to intorduce this game himself, one he is "very proud of" - The Crew. A new breed of street racing game, "more variety in a video game world than has ever been created". With both single player and co-op/multiplayer play, they transition seamlessly, with no lobby to seperate each game mode.

Cars can be tailored exactly to your specifications, taken apart and rebuilt again from the ground up.

Due out early 2014, this is one racing game I think I won't be able to put down.




Watch_Dogs.

Not much more was revealed about Watch_Dogs, other than a new trailer, here it is:



Due out November 22nd in the UK.
"You'll never be free again."

Just Dance 2014.

New additions to the Just Dance franchise:
- 6 player dances.
- On-stage mode.
- Just Dance DJ.



Releasing October 2013 on current gen consoles, and Holiday 2013 on next-gen.

Rabbids Invasion TV Show.

TV show abouts the Rabbids, on Nickelodeon. Exclusive partnership with Xbox One to give the show an interactive spin, so you can play your TV show whilst watching (using Kinect), by aiming/throwing eggs at the Rabbids, pointing out Chickees and shouting at the screen. Really like the look of this, as I imagine AJ will enjoy it.

Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag.

New trailer, not much else to report:


Trials Fusion/Trials Frontier.

One future, two trials.
Trials Fusion coming to next-gen consoles, this time you can do tricks!
Trials Frontier coming exclusively to mobile devices.
Both launching in 2014, and will compliment each other.


Tom Clancy's The Division.

Brought to us by Massive Entertainment, this next-gen game revolves around a bioterror event in the US. A pandemic has spread like wildfire, devastating the world. 

It is an online, open-world RPG. And it looks amazing.

Coming to Xbox One and PS4 in 2014.


See you back here after the Sony livestream!
